Sony Xperia 1 V Review

Score: 82.7 / 100

Sony Xperia 1 V is an impressive cellphone launched almost a year ago, provisioned with an enormous 6.5-inches screen, and two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back side camera and a 12 MP front camera. We will get a better idea about this cellphone's characteristics when we get into specific details.

A key aspect of the Sony Xperia 1 V is its 256 GB big internal storage memory and while it doesn't come with an external memory slot, it is still enough to install lots of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

It seems like Sony decided not to care so much about the weight in this 6.6 oz phone. The Sony Xperia 1 V is for sale in three colors, black, khaki green and platinum silver. This cellphone combines Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass Victus) and Aluminum . Although this cellphone is only 6.5" long, it is able to fit a a 6.5" screen. This phone has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.33".

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 12 megapixels front facing camera. this cellphone's back-facing camera lens has a maximum f/1.9 aperture so it can take clear photos even in low lighting conditions. It is also able to capture videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 120 fps. Additionally, this cellphone's camera also counts with time lapse video.

This phone has an awesome 1644 x 3840 6.5" screen, providing this device with a high level image quality.

This phone has amassive 5000 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an incredibly long battery life. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, even though with so much capacity you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes an issue.

This phone features Wi-Fi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G insanely fast connectivity, 4G LTE-A super fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G network) and fast 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This phone also features a wide variety of great features like Fingerprint Sensor, Wireless charging system, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.3 ) and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is probably a great option if you want a device for work, will use it as a gaming cellphone, are an amateur photographer or want a phone to mainly use social networks and internet browsing.
