Sony Xperia 1 VI Review

Score: 83.2 / 100

Sony Xperia 1 VI is an impressive cellphone, packing an enormous 6.9" screen, and 2 cameras, a 48 megapixels back facing camera and a 12 mega-pixels front facing camera. Let's take a better sight of what this cellphone can do.

This cellphone has a 256 GB big internal storage and an external SD slot, which allows you to store tons of applications, games, photos and videos without even thinking about running out of space.

While this cellphone is just 0 inches long and 0" wide, it's still able to fit a a 6.9 inches screen. Sony just sells this cellphone in color black. This device combines Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass Victus) and Aluminum.

This cellphone includes a incredible 1644 x 3840 6.9 inches display, giving this cellphone a great graphic quality.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI offers Wi-Fi capability (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G blazing fast connectivity, 4G LTE-A really quick connection type and also HSPA+ connectivity (a slower 4G variation) and fast 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone features two cameras, a 48 megapixels back side camera and a 12 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back side camera lens has an aperture of F1.9 so it can shoot clear photos even in dark conditions. It also films videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 120 fps. This cellphone also includes time lapse video.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI packs a 5000 mAh big capacity non-removable battery, enough to provide the Sony Xperia 1 VI with an incredible battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to get older, although with so much capacity you will probably discard this cellphone before it becomes an issue.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI also includes plenty of interesting characteristics like Fingerprint Sensor, Wireless charging, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

If you want it for work, you love taking photos, need a device to play lots of games or will use this cellphone mostly for social networks, this device is probably the right one .
