Who is excited for the 1?

I'm seeing that people are disappointed with what Sony is offering but I'm liking the phone and I think I found the perfect upgrade for my XZ Premium.

 

Watching videos on the 1 is going to be fantastic. I just wish I could do monthly payments instead of having to buy it at once from Best Buy or Amazon

Re: Who is excited for the 1?

I don't think people are disappointed at all... It's just hard to stay excited when they said it will be available 3-4 months after they unveiled it.

I was waiting for that announcement and set an alarm in the morning to watch it. The stream broke half way through which was weird, but then they didn't mention the date when it will be available which I thought was the whole point of the unveiling, we already knew everything about the device lol

Waiting until June is just so offputting.

Re: Who is excited for the 1?

Yeah March or April would have been better but I don't mind waiting a bit. I don't change phones often so if I get the 1 it'll be my phone for a quite a while

Re: Who is excited for the 1?

I am looking forward to this phone...but I do hope it gets the gesture navigation implemented into its software. I know it's an Android 9 feature but it's an awesome feature. I'm running it on my huawei  mate and couldn't go backwards.

Now the bezels have gotten smaller on the Sony phones I want to return. I loved my Sony z3+ but kept overheating.

And why did they remove screen recording? That was awesome too 🙄

Don't talk from all people, i'm dissapoined, coz i thought Xperia 1 will be at last in the same level as are others manufactors products. Same level means the same new features like 5G, wireless charge and ect. If smartphone is good to wait 3-4 months is not so long.

Re: Who is excited for the 1?

Is a mobile phone all about just camera and videos?? For serious photography I use a couple of Nikon & Canon DSLR and nothing, repeat nothing, can beat that. No need to get into photographic technicalities here but just take a look around the sites of professional renowned photo-pros.

Of late - too much emphasis is being put just on camera/video specs. If I want to watch a good movie I use  4K TV - yes, again a Sony Bravia. Slightly smiling Face. Short videos on mobile are ok, but does that justify an uppish pricetag for a "tallboy" design which won't fit into any trouser/jeans pocket?

Thank you - but in my opinion a mobile's greatest USP should be a balanced set of latest all round features such a DT2W, Night mode, couple of good built in productivity apps, a reasonably balanced camera and video, a long battery life, and yes, most importantly - no bugs in h/w or s/w please.

 

Add a few more features like wireless Qi charging as @EUPHORIC has mentioned.

 

I am happy with my XZP G8142 and will not go for Xperia 1 or any of the 21:9 aspect ratio phones. Too tall, and not that easy to carry around.
