Sony made a great design job making the Sony Xperia 1 as lightweight as 6.28 ounces. About its body materials, this phone is manufactured with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Aluminum . This cellphone is for sale in a nice range of colors like black, gray, purple and white. This cellphone is a very compact device, given that it features a 6.5 inches display and it has just 6.57 inches long. This phone is slim, being just 0.32 inches thick.

This cellphone includes a beautiful 6.5" display with a 1644 x 3840 resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels taking part of the display.
