The difference is not only me but many brothers will feel when holding the Xperia 1 for the first time. Perhaps it is even more different because this year Sony does not sell smartphones in Vietnam anymore, if it wants to buy only portable products. Before starting, please condolence with Sony fans and those who pursue true beauty.
Sony this year has Xperia 10 and Xperia 1 with a screen ratio of 21: 9, so it looks very long, it's like a slim, skinny student in the world of all fat people. Although the same size as the 6 "5 and OLED panel like the iPhone Xs Max, the Xperia 1's overall will be about 1cm longer because of the aspect ratio and the top / bottom of the screen.
With this ratio, it is optimal for the audiovisual experience, watching movies will be very good, 21: 9 is the ratio of movies that we often watch in theaters or at home, displayed on the Xperia 1 screen as if for together. Combined with a super-beautiful color screen and more strokes, there's no need to discuss much. This screen is very sharp, standard color, its resolution is 4k. When watching YouTube, Xperia 1 also has a sound and light shake effect on the screen.
This difference also brings newness. You will see that the handset is more confident because it is not big in the horizontal, less afraid of crashing. When reading content, it feels like it's showing more and longer, although it's just a feeling. I am compared to the iPhone Xs Max, no more.
Sony is conservative, everyone knows it, don't know if it will touch the fans. You see that Xperia 1 will have a lot of buttons, all placed next to the left. Fingerprint sensors are also here and it is not the power button, so there are two separate buttons. Add to that a hard shutter button, but for me this button should be kept.
Like XZ3, Xperia 1 do not use the overflow screen with rabbit ears, water drops or pop-up cameras, but the two edges are still quite thick, ie they still choose to follow the tradition. It is worth noting when the upper border is slightly thicker than the lower border.
But changed very positively
Yes, you'll find that Sony listens a lot, on Xperia 1. That's the camera resolution, the 3-camera cluster and the collaboration between teams. Sony first used 3 lenses on smartphones for 3 different focal points. In previous years, Sony's machines had a relatively high resolution of 19MP, but this year both 3 cameras were 12MP, with 26mm and 52mm tubes having optical vibration protection. Super wide camera is 16mm. I tried to take some shots both in the dark and bright, I found Xperia 1 to handle the image well, the colors are harmonious and sharp.
Sony said it equipped the X1 chip like a BRAVIA TV for Xperia 1 to enhance the visual experience. In addition, Alpha's camera algorithms are also brought to the camera so the changes are very positive and can be seen immediately when using the device.
In addition, Sony has added many software features, such as the Cinema Pro application to record 21: 9 ratio movies like professional filmmakers. It is a creative application, so if you need to shoot a normal video, using an app camera is enough. Like the Game Inhancer for gaming, when this mode is activated, you will be able to choose to turn off notifications, navigation bar lock and free RAM release for gaming.
At first, when I look at the picture, I think Xperia 1 will be very long, so the content displayed on it, especially the image will be smaller when viewed vertically but not necessarily. The image when viewed will be slightly smaller. In return, we have more vertical space, better hand-held camera, optimal support for watching movies or videos. Xperia 1 has a vertical split screen mode to take advantage of this 21: 9 screen.
We bought this Xperia 1 to do many articles with it for you to enjoy. Please wait for the next series on Xperia 1. Scroll down to see the test image with Xperia 1.
