Sony killed it with the Xperia 1 V

Recommended Posts

I've always been a Sony fan and the only peace of tech equipment thats not a Sony is my phone, not that I've never tried using their phones, but it's always been the battery that makes me switch back.

First Sony phone was back in 2012 was the Xperia S, I was amazed by the screen quality but the battery would not last a whole day.

Second phone was the Sony Xperia z, I think it was one of the first ones to have water proof but also had battery issue that does not last long.

Last year I picked up the Xperia 1 IV, although it's a great phone, we all know about the over heating issue specially if you live in a hot area lake Texas.

This year I got the Xperia 1 V, and I honestly can say that this phone is near perfect, battery is fixed, never had any overheating issue screen is gorgeous, having a headphone jack and external SD card again feel really good, and the CAMERA is amazing even on basic mode, I think Sony finally did a phone that can be used by anyone not just pros,  in my opinion the one only have 2 issues , 1st one is the fingerprint reader not very reliable, and the second one is the location on the camera flash, and this one only an issue if you want to put a screen protector to the lens because the flash light will bleed into the lenses.

 

Whats your thoughts of the phone?

I've been a fan of the Sony Xperia line forever! I have the Xperia 1 ii/iii. I love how the android OS has almost no bloatware and is pretty much almost stock android. The only complaint I have is that there is no trade-in programs for the Xperia. So no way to maximize value on the phones if you want to upgrade.
