The thing that I like about Android is there can be so many
different kinds of phones, just a lot of weird choices. But lately, it seems like
there are really only two choices, at least in terms of screen size. There's regular and there's extra large, which is why I was so excited
to try this phone right here, the Sony Xperia 1. I mean, just look at this good tall boy. It's got a 21:9 aspect ratio, which makes it relatively
narrow and super, well, tall. I think it's a fascinating phone, and it's way nicer than
I expected it to be. But I don't think it can
really justify its $950 price. Let me tell you why. Now, a lot of people would
like to have a big-screened phone, but they're put off by
how big these phones feel.
And that's the reason I like the Xperia 1. It has a big screen, there
is no doubt about it. It's 6.5 inches. But it's quite a bit narrower
than this OnePlus 7 Pro here. So you get the benefits of
seeing more stuff on your screen, like on the web or on Twitter, without the drawback of
feeling like you have a big honking glass slab you can barely wrap your fingers around. This phone is also really good if you like to do split-screen apps, which… I don’t know, I guess
people still do that. I never do. Anyway, it's nicer to hold, but that doesn't make
it a one-handed phone by any stretch of the imagination.
You're still going to need
to use your second hand to reach the top of the screen. Sony has a couple of
software tricks that help with how tall this phone is, but neither of them are great. You can double tap the home button to make a smaller version of the screen. Or there's this other thing with… Er, wow. What are you
doing there, Chuckles? Huh. Sorry, let's back up. Or you're supposed to be able to tap either side of the screen or swipe on it to do other stuff. It's called Side Sense,
and it kind of sucks. I can never get it to
work when I want it to, and it pops up all of the time when I don't want it to.
Now the reason that Sony
says it made this phone at this weird, tall aspect ratio is for watching movies, and Sony says that it
has a 4K HDR OLED screen. It also has, quote, “professional
level color reproduction.” So it can be in the DCI-P3 color gamut. It can also be in the BT.2020 color space if you care about that. And it has the D65 white point. There's this whole “Creator Mode” thing. Basically, Sony is
trying to make this phone appeal to people who really
care about video quality, both watching it and recording it. But Sony, the thing is, if you're going to do that, this screen should get way brighter. It is way more dim compared
to other OLED screens. Anyway, yeah, I will say
watching a 21:9 movie on this phone with its Dolby
stuff, without letterboxing or weird camera cutouts, is great. But the truth is that most
of the video that I watch is not 21:9.
It’s stuff on YouTube, and so I still end up
having big black bars on the left or the right. Or, if I expand it full screen, I end up cutting off people's heads. Now, I do think this phone is pretty good from a build quality perspective. It's got Gorilla Glass and IP68. It's got some bezels,
but they're not too big, and it's just nice to hold. But, you know, of course
there's no headphone jack. But there's no getting around how it being this tall
makes it really awkward. It's so tall, it couldn't
fit in my pocket. I was sitting down, and it just slid right out of my pocket and clattered on the concrete, which is why there are dings on the edges of the
phone on our review unit, which is sad. The buttons are also awkward.
They're all on the right side of the phone and, I don’t know, the fingerprint sensor is separate from the power
button for some reason. And sometimes it gets a little dirty and you have to wipe it off
before it will actually work. I do like that there is
a dedicated camera button. But overall, when I'm
trying to use this phone, I just end up hitting the wrong button, like, all of the time.
On the back, there are
three 12-megapixel cameras. There's a regular, a 2X
telephoto, and a wide. Sony put some nice optical
image stabilization on the main lens, and you know what? Finally, Sony has made
a phone with a camera that's pretty good. It's not quite as good as a Pixel 3 or a OnePlus 7 Pro to my eyes, but it's finally respectable.
I do wish that the
telephoto was more than 2X, but the wide angle one, it's really fun. I kind of love it. But I don't love Sony's camera software. The wide angle thing makes you pick between prioritizing image
quality or distortion. The auto made doesn't do HDR by default, and there's just a bunch of other settings that just really look
and feel kind of silly. Anyway, let's get into the results of what I actually get
out of these lenses. I think that Sony
prefers leaving detail in, even though that also
leaves in a bunch of noise. It also doesn't do as
aggressive HDR as I would like unless you have to, you
know, manually turn it on.
But the thing that did surprise me is that even though there's
no dedicated night mode, sometimes it actually
really nails it anyway, even if it's incredibly dark. Now, you can shoot 4K, and
that's one of the reasons this phone exists. And so Sony also
included a Cinema Pro app that lets you really dial
in all these manual settings for shooting 4K video. Unfortunately, the 8-megapixel camera on the front is junk.
It's really not good. I don't know, man. If this phone didn't cost $950, I'd probably be a little
bit less nit-picky, but you know what? It does. So I am. In terms of software and performance, I actually don't have a ton of complaints. It's a fairly clean version of Android 9 with just a few bells and whistles. It has a Snapdragon 855 processor so it's fast, and there's 6GB of RAM, which is decent, but not stellar. I am a little bit grumpy that there's only one storage option:
128GB of storage. If you're going to want more, and especially if you're
going to want to shoot 4K, you're going to need to expand it. And you can because there's
a microSD card slot. Battery life is
average-ish for big phones. I'm getting over four hours of screen time, and it's lasting through a day, but there's only a 3,300mAh battery in here, and I kind of feel like that's not enough.
I would be happier with that if there was wireless
charging on this phone. But no, there's not. It does do fast charging, but one neat thing Sony does is it won't fast-charge when it knows that you’re charging overnight, which helps with the overall
life span of the battery, which means it should last longer, a year or two for now — at least in theory. Now, after all that, if you're still interested in this phone, you should also know
that Sony as a company has kind of been deemphasizing phones since it hasn't been
really successful with them in the past few years.
And that kind of makes sense, and I also think it makes sense for Sony to try something new and move into this niche
of making tall boys, like this guy right here. Now, of course, you can spend less money and get a better phone
like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but what you can't get is any other phone in this tall aspect ratio, so I like the idea of this form factor. I think that it should exist in
the world of Android phones. So I'm glad that Sony's
trying to make 21:9 happen. But I don't know that I'd
recommend this particular phone to anybody. If you really, really,
really love the tall screen or you really love what
Sony does with video, then maybe.
But there's no getting around the fact that this is an expensive phone. For $950, I expect more,
and you should, too. Hey, thank you for watching. Do you want a tall phone? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you're wondering if
there are other tall phones, we did review the Xperia 10 last month. It's kind of the same idea but cheaper and also, it's really bad for a whole other set of reasons.
But if you want to see a
review of a good big phone, click here..
the phone in front of us today costs a whopping 2 500 the sony xperia pro no extra numbers no really long name just a really long price tag this might very well be the only real professional phone in existence and for that price it better be inside the box we get a usbc cable 18 watt charging brick and some corded headphones that have a headphone jack that right there might be worth two thousand dollars to some people it's always a little annoying when the charging cable that's included with the box is the short and stubby little guy that can barely reach anything personally for the last three years i've been using one of these super long six foot usbc cables next to my bed from my channel sponsor anchor and it's pretty amazing right now you can get two of these super long six foot usb-c cables with a lifetime warranty for just 15 bucks at the link in the description i'm not sure if that price is a typo or not but you might want to jump on it before anchor notices what they've done at twenty five hundred dollars this is one of the most expensive phones we've ever tested here on jerry rig everything it's definitely a professional price tag and while i am indeed a professional i don't think i'm quite the type of professional this phone was built for let's get started [Music] [Applause] [Music] right off the bat the first thing i notice about this phone is that it feels and looks like it's sitting inside of a built-in protective case it's got a lightweight textured plastic exterior the second thing i notice is the screen this is one of the only phones in existence with a 4k resolution display which is pretty awesome i'm able to see these tiny footprints in the snow or the detail on the trees without the pixels getting in the way that's pretty incredible the xperia pro display is forty percent more detailed than an iphone 12 pro screen with a screen that's nice it would be a real shame if someone scratched it but i'll take one for the team if you listen really closely you can also hear that there's no camera bump on the back the xperia pro is primarily designed to be a second monitor for the sony dslr camera while at the same time using its 5g internal antennas to live stream or upload the high quality imagery to the internets which is a unique combination of characteristics we'll talk about that more in a second but the important thing is is that the gorilla glass 6 scratches at a level six with deeper grooves at a level seven the display is also super long with its 21×9 aspect ratio and up here at the very top it has an 8 megapixel selfie camera tucked into the bezel right there next to the earpiece slit the earpiece doesn't have any exterior grilles the sides of the phone are more rugged than usual and are made out of a hard rough textured plastic you might have noticed that there's also a plethora of buttons along the side the bottom button is a textured camera button that can activate the camera to take pictures just like a shutter button right above that we have a programmable button that can activate any app or start up its external monitor features both of which are made from metal above that we have the recessed power button which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner we'll get back to that then up top we have the volume rocker which is also made from metal the xperia logo is just overlaid and painted onto the plastic and will probably eventually rub off in your pocket the pro part of that logo is inlaid three dimensionally and is the only part of the branding that won't rub off on its own up at the top of the phone we do have that headphone jack it's kind of strange that in order to get a headphone jack on your phone these days you either gotta spend two thousand dollars or two hundred the right side of the phone has no buttons just more textured plastic it does have a sim and sd card tray that does not need a removal tool it can pull out with just your fingers it makes it much easier to swap memory cards which is a pretty professional feature you might also have noticed that this phone has an ip rating of ip65 ip68 kind of strange and that's because down here at the bottom things start getting weird alongside the normal usbc port there is a full on micro hdmi port this is how the xperia pro gets its high quality 4k 60fps footage imported from the full frame dslr for streaming over 5g if you understood all that congrats on being hip lit with your gucci on fleek and if you're a little lost well there's always bingo knight long story short this phone is ip68 when the flap is closed and when it's open it's only ip65 so be careful on the back of the xperia pro it does have some cameras of its own a 12 megapixel telephoto lens a 12 megapixel wide angle lens a 3d time-of-flight depth camera and then down at the bottom we have the 12 megapixel main camera nothing super crazy special or out of the ordinary but sony is really good at making cameras it's kind of their thing the nfc pad is located in the center of the back panel right underneath this symbol here there is no wireless charging now sony has been around for a really long time they are one of the largest companies in the world they've got their logo subtly recessed into the back of the phone one of sony's very first products they ever made was a transistor radio back in 1955 then in 1957 they made the world's smallest portable radio that really took off putting sony on the map the name sony is derived from the latin word for sound which makes sense since they were you know making radios before all that though one of their very first products ever [Music] was a rice cooker which is what you see here bet you didn't see that one coming personally i for one am glad sony branched out and explored new markets the back panel of the xperia pro does look to be glued down and is water resistant sony phones are normally notoriously difficult and complicated to take apart but maybe this time will be different make sure you're subscribed so you don't miss the teardown the screen is still my favorite part of the phone with 10 bits of color and 4k resolution it all sounds super impressive until you remember that last year's xperia 1 mark ii also had a 10 bit 4k display and it only cost a thousand dollars this might hurt sony's feelings but i think that if you don't need the very very specific ability to live stream bingo knight in full-frame 4k 60 fps then last year's mark ii is definitely the better choice of cell phone the oled does last 25 seconds under the heat from my lighter though finally the xperia pro does have a side mounted capacitive fingerprint reader i've already scratched it once and for the most part it still works to read my finger if i add a few more scratches after the fingerprint is set it still manages to function most of the time just not all the time finally the bin test i'm a big fan of the rugged design on this xperia pro the recessed camera lens and textured plastic back make for a much more durable phone design with less exposed glass parts to break structurally when bent from the back there is a slight curve to the phone which since it's so long it's kind of expected but it does lock out and doesn't break when bent from the front we get the same thing a slight bend but the 2 500 smartphone holds strong and stays in one piece not too shabby interesting how the most rugged looking phone that we've tested in quite a while is also the most expensive by far it's like a sleeper phone moral of the story though if you really need a 4k display just grab last year's xperia mark ii the rest of us will be just fine with all the other phones that have professional in the name but are actually just pretending the people this phone was really built for are probably all still out there working right now while you're watching this video they're out there being all professional and stuff with no time for the internet or a computer you know workaholics let me know what you think would you ever use a phone like this come hang out with me on instagram and twitter and hit that subscribe button if you haven't already thanks done for watching i'll see you around
