A real alternative to the S10+

The phone is a real alternative for the ones who still doesn´t like the Samsung Galaxy S line. I really don´t like Samsung UI, i even think they still have the worst Android skin out there. So why did i choose the Xperia 1 instead of the other ones? Well, i´ve been using LCD since 2014 and i was tired of having poor contrast and not real blacks. It was time to spend some extra bucks to have OLED. When i saw that Sony launched the first 4k OLED display with unique HDR BT2020 i immediately fell in love with it.
Making all story short, the Xperia 1 surprised me to have a good fidelity on colors and also not having over processed photos and videos when shooting with its camera. This camera you either will love it or hate it. The camera preserves sharpness and it doesnt over process images like the Oneplus and Samsung does, they produce real and natural colors like the professional photographers like. I´ve seen some stupid reviews claiming that the Dynamic range from the camera was bad, this is because mostly of them are used to have brands that use A LOT of software, generally you lose some quality when you have a camera that over process images. So don´t ever say that dynamic range is bad since the propose of this camera is to show you the real world with natural colors.

It is not bad. They manage so well this 3300Mah battery, but why not including 4000mah? It will last until the end of the day.

Pros

  • Amazing 4k screen with high PPI and HDR BT2020
  • 6.5
  • Rear camera is as good as an Iphone XS max
  • Very good skin UI, not heavy modified by Sony. Vanilla android.

Cons

  • Speakers has enough loundness, but its horrible for bass.
  • Selfie camera is not as good as the competitors.
  • Battery should be a bit better.
  • Camera app could be better without some bugs.

I love the phone, have managed to find a cover for the phone so even better. Only problem I have encountered is the screen stop working on me, problem was solved though by a hard reset of the battery.
