Sony Xperia Pro-I review


What if the Sony Xperia 1 III went to school and got a degree in filmmaking? No need to wonder - it would become an imaging professional. It would become...

No-nonsense design, high-end build, IP65/IP68 rating.

We can't approve of the '1.0-inch type sensor' marketing, when the phone clearly only uses a portion of it.

Still, we consider the Xperia Pro-I to be more of a proof-of-concept device than a product that actually makes sense from a market standpoint. It undoubtedly has its merits, and one could rationalize why it would be superior to this or that...

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: Seamlessly professional


The Sony Xperia Pro-I is a brilliant camera alternative for professionals

Beautiful 21:9 120Hz OLED display ; First-in-class cameras ; Camera shutter button ; Stunning audio ; Good battery life…

…unless using heavy-duty apps ; Premium price ; No wireless charging ; 4K isn’t noticeable ; Long footprint is not for everyone

The Sony Xperia Pro-I is aptly made for photography and cinematography professionals, adding a killer camera to a powerful Android smartphone. But it’s more of a camera alternative than the camera-smartphone hybrid it sets out to be.

Sony Xperia PRO-I review: The Camera phone


The Sony Xperia PRO-I is the new ultra-premium phone from Sony. Thin, powerful, and focused entirely on camera features with a huge 1-inch sensor!

Sharp and accurate 4K 120Hz OLED display ; Distinctive industrial design ; Remarkable camera versatility ; Superb video-recording capabilities ; Natural, not overly processed photos and videos ; Loud and clear stereo speakers ; Plenty of storage plus...

High price ; Shutter button is too sensitive ; Only 30W fast charging ; Mushy haptic feedback ; No biometric alternative to the fingerprint scanner ; White balance discrepancies between the different cameras ; Camera interface doesn't rotate

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: A powerful smartphone for professional photographers | ZDNet


After a few weeks with the Sony Xperia Pro-I, it's clear this phone is built for photographers who shoot with specific manual settings. It's extremely capable but also too advanced for typical smartphone users.

Advanced, expert-level camera apps ; Powerful camera hardware ; Solid battery life ; Excellent build quality ; Lovely high-resolution display

Very expensive ; Limited zoom capability ; Sensitive shutter button

Sony Xperia PRO-I Review


Not content with introducing their flagship Xperia I III smartphone earlier this year, Sony have taken things to a whole other level with the launch of the brand new Xperia PRO-I. Sporting a price-tag of £1,599 / $1,799, is this the ultimate smartphone...

Sony Xperia PRO-I Reviewed: Great Camera Too Hot To Handle


Sony Xperia PRO-I turns out slightly less enjoyable to use due to heat issues and constant accidental unlocks. Great camera quality, though.

Just by looking at the design and the specs, the Sony Xperia PRO-I could have been a great smartphone. But ironically, its compact size turns out to be a bane in using the phone. I suppose getting a phone case could resolve my pain points, but I am...

Sony Xperia Pro-I proves why Sony should stop making phones


Sony's Xperia Pro-I goes all-in on pro-level imaging, both in photography and videography. But lackluster battery life, a dim display, and an unintuitive pro app user experience leave much to be desired with this ludicrously expensive phone.

Powerful imaging capabilities ; Excellent audio ; High-res display

Ridiculously expensive ; Unintuitive pro app user experience ; No mmWave 5G or wireless charging ; Subpar battery life in 120Hz mode ; Cameras not better than cheaper phones

I don’t think anyone should buy the Xperia Pro-I. If you’re a professional photographer or videographer, you likely have your own dedicated equipment that can do a lot more than this phone could dream of doing. And if you’re a hobbyist, there are...

Sony Xperia PRO-I Sony Xperia PRO-I Review - Mobile for professional photographers


Expensive mobile phones have incredibly good cameras, but the Sony Xperia PRO-I takes both picture quality and price to new heights.

Very high image quality from 1 inch image sensor in limited light. Dedicated capture and shutter button, rich settings menu with features we associate with professional cameras.

The 1 inch camera is cropped, visible vignetting on f4 and the price is high.

Sony Xperia PRO-I is by far the best mobile we have tested in terms of picture quality. But note that it is first and foremost the cropped 1-inch image sensor of 12 megapixels that applies. PRO-I is also a damn good mobile in other areas, but it is...

Sony Xperia Pro-I review


The Xperia Pro-I is the best Sony camera phone for photographers with an RX100-sized 1-inch sensor

Natural photo and video processing ; Excellent stills and video camera apps ; Rich design with photography-centric highlights ; Day-long battery life ; Impressive performance ; Huge storage capacity

No wireless charging ; No periscope telephoto camera ; No ultra-wide autofocus ; Very expensive ; Max screen brightness could be brighter ; Spongy camera button

The Sony Xperia Pro-I is an excellent camera phone for imaging enthusiasts. It takes natural-looking photos, and offers no less than three unmatched manual camera apps. Its main camera is also the best we’ve seen from Sony, though we were let down by...
