Expert review by : Allison Johnson (theverge.com)

Sony’s Xperia 1 III is pricey, performant, and perplexing

 

Great photography features but the price is too high.

Good, high-res OLED 120Hz panel ; Lots of manual photo and video controls ; Sophisticated, minimalist design

Short time frame for security update support ; Expensive ; Seriously, it’s $1,300

The Sony Xperia 1 III offers a good 6.5-inch OLED with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 888 processor, and three rear cameras including a zoom lens with two focal lengths. It’s a very good high-end device, but it’s too costly to recommend.

Sony Xperia 1 III Review

 

The Sony Xperia 1 III is a phone made for a very specific user who'd want the most high-res screen on the market, a microSD card slot, and probably the best interface for multitasking, but that comes at an exorbitant price and disappointments in a few...

Full of enthusiast features: 4K screen, microSD slot, manual camera controls, headphone jack ; Unique tall and narrow look, stylish design ; Lightweight body

Grossly overpriced ; Overheats easily ; Battery life is just average ; Photo and video quality is disappointing ; Camera app is convoluted, has a lot of limitations

Sony Xperia 1 III Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Sony delivers one of its best smartphones yet with features you won't find on other modern Android flagships.

No notch and cutout leaves screen uninterrupted ; Narrow body is great most of the time ; Features ditched elsewhere like SD card, headphone jack included

Screen doesn’t get bright enough outdoors ; Tall display can make certain things feel cramped ; Low-light and zoom photography isn’t that great for something that costs this much

Sony Xperia 1 III review

 

The Sony Xperia 1 III is an expensive smartphone, but it's the company's best of the last few years.

Great battery life Incredible display 3.5mm headphone jack

Tricky to handle, for some No in-screen fingerprint sensor Expensive

The Sony Xperia 1 III isn’t for everyone, but for those who enjoy Sony’s Android phones, or who want a top-tier smartphone with a versatile camera, a beautiful screen and strong battery life, this is a great choice. It’s expensive, and its design means...

Sony Xperia 1 III review: In a world of its own

 

Sony's 2021 iteration of the Xperia 1 has a lot to offer - but carries with it some surprising weaknesses.

Great design ; Good display ; 3.5mm headphone socket and microSD card slot ; Plenty of power ; Good battery life

Camera substitutes complexity for performance ; Fingerprint scanner prone to accidental detections ; Display brightness could be better ; High price

This could be all the phone that many will need, with a great display, plenty of power and useful features like the headphone socket and expandable storage. But the camera is complicated by Sony's attempt to make it more 'pro', missing the mark hit by...

Sony Xperia 10 III review: Muddling through the mid-range

 

Compact and offering 5G connectivity - but can it truly compete?

Great build quality ; Waterproofing ; Good display ; MicroSD card slot ; 3.5mm headphone socket

Mono speaker ; Display brightness ; Weak front camera ; Camera low-light performance ; Price

This mid-ranger offers good build quality and waterproofing - which is a rarity at this level. But while it offers three proper cameras on the back, the overall camera performance isn't great. There's plenty of power for a mid-range device, but it's...

Sony Xperia 1 III review: Nearly brilliant

 

Mightily impressive in many ways but expensive and flawed in others, the Sony Xperia 1 III is so close to brilliance

Astonishing camera offering ; Colour-accurate 4K display ; 21:9 aspect ratio is a delight

Very, very expensive ; 120Hz only available at FHD resolution ; Poor battery life

The Sony Xperia 1 III’s poor stamina is hugely disappointing because it’s otherwise a truly exceptional handset. Mostly unblemished in every other area, and truly exceptional in others, the Xperia 1 III is a solid indication that Sony absolutely knows...

Sony Xperia 1 III review

 

Can Sony's dream team do the double?

Astonishing display ; Ultra-speedy camera ; No-compromise feature list

Pro camera modes may be lost on novice snappers ; Seriously premium price

More multi-division Sony greatness, with a seriously impressive screen and pro-level camera abilities. Photo novices might find it difficult to master, but no rival has such comprehensive out-of-the-box ability
