Reviews for the Sony Xperia 1 III

86.8% Sony Xperia 1 III smartphone review - Camera phone with variable telephoto focal length | Notebookcheck
The third generation of Sony's flagship smartphone is also supposed to convince mainly with features for professional photographers. But the Sony-typical design and the high-resolution screen could also make it attractive for other users.
80% Sony Xperia 1 III Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
The Xperia 1 III is one of the most interesting phones I’ve tested this year. This isn’t a cookie-cutter flagship impersonating a Galaxy S21 in its attempt to earn a place among the best Android phones – it’s doing its own thing and I appreciate that a lot. It’s great to see features like the SD card slot and headphone jack kept in. Design-wise its also wonderfully unique featuring a notch and cut-out free screen alongside an atypically tall and narrow design. On top of this it’s fast, has a good camera and mostly fluid software. But, there are bits that aren’t a complete success. Some parts of the camera need improving and I’d like a brighter screen when outside. Still, even with these flaws this is the best Sony flagship in a long time and it shouldn’t be dismissed – even at its high asking price.

80% Sony Xperia 1 III review: Nearly brilliant
Source: Expert Reviews English EN→zh-CN
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 what it’s doing in the mobile space. All Sony needs to do now is swallow its pride, ask for less than what Samsung and Apple are currently charging and ditch the pointless 4K display in favour of better battery life. If they can do those things, there’s nothing standing in the way of its phones standing side by side with the best phones around. For the time being, however, the Sony Xperia 1 III is simply too expensive, and battery life is too short-lived, to recommend.

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 it isn’t for everybody, but if your budget can stretch to it, and you're a fan of its looks, it could be a great option.

75% Sony’S Xperia 1 III Is Pricey, Performant, And Perplexing
Source: The Verge English EN→zh-CN
In the Xperia 1 III, Sony has created a sophisticated device that both looks good and delivers flagship-level performance. It offers sophisticated camera hardware and software and a lovely high-resolution OLED that’s not quite like anything else in its class. And yet I’m struggling to think of anyone who should buy this phone over an iPhone 12 Pro Max or a Galaxy S21 Ultra.

90% Sony Xperia 1 III review: Elegant, exhilarating, expensive
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
Overall, the Sony Xperia 1 III stumbles to offer a flawless flagship package, but it’s as close as the company has ever come to building an exceptional smartphone. There’s fierce competition at this price point, and unless you will absolutely make the most of Sony’s more niche features, there are better all-rounders you can buy for the same or even less cash. If you do want to dive head-first into the Xperia experience, then this is undoubtedly Sony’s best phone to date and you’ll love it. Personally, it’s a phone I’d love to own but could never justify buying.

100% Review Sony Xperia 1 III
Source: L&B TechReview English EN→zh-CN
The third time is the charm, it is said, and this is at least true of the Sony Xperia 1 III, which is the third incarnation of Sony’s Xperia 1 series, which the Japanese company launched back in 2019. The new mobile patches on a few of the holes that the previous Xperia 1 models had compared to the competition, and also offers enough cool unique features – PS4 Remote Play and 360 Spatial Sound just to name a few – for, that Sony Xperia 1 III should objectively be a strong and serious competitor to the Android flagship models that currently dominates the market. What still scares many consumers away is Sony’s special camera solution, which is far more geared towards semi-professionals than the Snapchat and Instagram segment. This is also the case with the Xperia 1 III, but at least Sony has solved some of the software issues that plagued previous models (though not the automatic HDR feature that still teases), and the Basic mode of the Photography Pro app ‘ one should most regular users be able to figure out.

The reality, however, remains that this is a niche product that instead of appealing to a larger audience, digs further into that niche of tech nerds and overlooks some fundamental experiences. Sony makes the best camera sensors that all the industry uses, it has the know-how to make a great smartphone for everyone. It just needs to take that task a bit more seriously and consider making a phone not just for "Sony nerds". A phone that will still have the Sony DNA, but with less of the quirks and a price that for once doesn't raise eye-brows.

76% Sony Xperia 1 III review: It could have been magnificent
Source: CNet English EN→zh-CN
And then there's the battery, which is more disappointing than the Friends reunion. In light use, I was able to mostly get through a day. But on days where I played games or did a lot of photography, I needed to top it off by dinner time. In our CNET battery tests with continuous video playback in airplane mode, it lasted 16 hours, 12 minutes with the screen set to 60Hz, which is an OK time. When I ran the same test with the screen at 120Hz, it lasted 10 hours and 45 minutes. Not even remotely good.

70% Sony Xperia 10 III review: Muddling through the mid-range
Source: Pocket Lint English EN→zh-CN
As with any mid-range phone, there's a collection of compromises that come with the Xperia 10 III. Sure, there's enough power to offer a smooth experience and it will cope with the latest games, but it's not quite on par with those devices offering a step-up in hardware, often for around the same price or even less. The design and build definitely works in Sony's favour though: this is a premium looking and feeling device, with the waterproofing a definite bonus and something few rivals offer (except for Samsung). The camera also lets the Sony experience down. While the main camera is generally decent in well lit scenes and there's a proper zoom lens, the front camera and low-light shooting is weak, so it doesn't feel as versatile as you might hope. Overall, the competition is just a little too strong for the Sony Xperia 10 III to stand out. Unless you're sold on that water-resistant design and 21:9 display, you'll get more for your money elsewhere.

Ultimately, the Xperia 1 III is not a bad phone. But it's a phone that takes a special type of person to appreciate. We certainly can't recommend it to anyone who isn't a brand loyalist, and maybe even those folks could be better off exploring alternative paths in the search of the ultimate smartphone.

100% Sony Xperia 1 III review
Source: Stuff TV English EN→zh-CN
Buy an Xperia 1 III. It doesn't know the meaning of the word. By once again pooling the efforts of its different divisions, Sony has delivered a truly flagship handset. It has a sublime display, a set of cameras on par with more fine-grain control than most DSLRs, and a feature list longer than a post-Brexit passport queue. A bigger battery and 120Hz screen refresh rate even fix its predecessor's few missteps. As before, though, some might say screen specs like these are overkill in a phone. Not everyone knows the difference between aperture priority and exposure compensation, either. Apple and Samsung are arguably more novice-friendly, despite commanding the same hefty price premium for their top-spec handsets. Android fans who like their top-end tech to be easy to use might be better served by a Galaxy S21 Ultra. Still, if specs matter most, the Xperia 1 III has undeniable appeal.

76% Sony Xperia 1 III review: It could have been a magnificent phone
Source: CNet English EN→zh-CN
In the expanse of smartphones, the Sony Xperia 1 III (read as "one mark three") positions itself as a tool for photographers, filmmakers, audiophiles and gamers. This is Sony's third take on a phone targeted at creative types, and like a band on its third album, its ambitions only succeed some of the time. With a state-of-the-art telephoto lens made up of tiny moving lenses that can switch between two focal lengths, 5G support for the US, and a first-of-its-kind 4K high refresh-rate display, you have to wonder if Sony's trying to do too much and inadvertently mucking up what would otherwise be a magnificent phone? The fact that the Xperia 1 III costs $1,300 (which converts roughly to £940, AU$1,735) makes its shortcomings impossible to ignore.

Xperia 1 III Hands-on: Sony has finally hit its stride
Source: XDA Developers English EN→zh-CN
The Sony Xperia 1 III is relatively pricey at 8,449 yuan ($1,334) for the 256 GB model and 9,499 yuan ($1,491) for the 512 GB model, but early sales numbers in China have reportedly been impressive, which perhaps isn’t surprising considering how much this phone stands out from the pack with its loud front-facing speakers, a headphone jack, a 4K/120Hz screen (although I can’t see the need for 4K, it’s more appealing on paper), and a dedicated camera shutter button. I didn’t get to use the phone long enough to test battery life, but its 4,500 mAh cell seems a bit small for a 4K/120Hz panel. But only further testing can tell definitively.
