I'm not an expert about the definition to the coverage of camera. What I love so much about Sony is they don't fake the result of the picture. For other brands of smartphone, they have too much brightness to that person you're taking is totally different when you see that person right there in front of you, while sony tells the truth, what you see is real in everything.

3.5mm *check* SD Card Slot *check* Yep one of the few non-trash phones out right now. The fact he didn't talk about it is *dislike* worthy.

Yes there is the catch, but the pixel size still the biggest in any phone. The photos and videos looks less digital.

Sony phones have been irrelevant for a long time now. They should just stop making phones in my opinion.

but sony pro-i has an advantage over other phones with smaller sensors is the pixel density of sony pro-i is smaller which means it might have less noise at high ISO image?

SONY phone...Does it over-heat when recording videos? or How long you can record video before it over-heat and stop recording?

The software support is a huge unknown. I asked on their Amazon product page for how long we'd get Android OS and security updates, and the only thing they did was answer "call our customer service at this number" and remove that answer the following day... it's like they know the answer wouldn't help this product sell. Potential buyers should be aware of this.

Glad Sony is finally breaking through. Now it's up to people to BUY them. Just wait a few months, the price will drop. Just get a sim from T-Mobile, it works in any unlocked phone.

Japanese can make smartphones better than Chinese or Korean. They are allowing their 3rd world neighbor countries to taste the economical success. Besides, most of important components in the phones are still made in Japan 🇯🇵

I kept picking the photo on the right because the colors look so much better and less washed out than the one on the left. Edit: Yeah there's a clear difference and I think the one on the right looks significantly better in every photo than the one on the left.

Maybe they are less priority because its just provides them extra money for their other expenditures. So that they can focus more of their money with their top products.

“Most camera lenses are plastic, I only recently learnt that” (cries with my 4 year old V30) Tbh this phone sounds a lot like the V30 back when it was released. It was one of the first phones that supported a HDR sensor, and it also came with a HDR display so you had an exception that it could shoot HDR video when in reality it was bottlenecked by the SOC as it only supported 8 Bit video at the time. Same deal with Sony I guess, market a massive sensor only to be bottlenecked by the lens size and aperture. Although lesser light isn’t a bad thing, sensors on smartphones are so large now days you can’t properly shoot video on broad daylight. There is just too much light so the phone has to cut down the shutter speed which ends up making 30FPS video look super choppy. In that case a smaller sensor would be better. But low light would suffer. The best solution of course is to increase the sensor size but have a variable ND filter (I remember seeing a phone with one before) then you have the best of both worlds. I think it was also LGs first attempt at making their own OLED panels (technically POLED) and shipping it with their phones so it was a leap from LCD displays. Likewise to a 4K 120Hz display on the Sony. Although it did suffer from some issues since first generation, I had ghosting with low brightness and viewing angles weren’t as good. Both phones are also marketed at a prosumer audience as they had manual controls in mind. At the time I think LG offered one of the best manual smartphone controls, only phone that supported LOG and one of the few phones to support focus peaking native in app.

New subscriber, and really enjoying your vids! Fascinating that the Xperia Pro-i and Pixel 6 are taking opposite approaches; Xperia is beefing up Smart Phone hardware to reintroduce traditional camera tech (f-stops and Zeiss glass, no less!), while Pixel seems to have set the upper limit on hardware and is concentrating on software solutions, which has been the whole story in the digital camera game from the beginning! It will be interesting to see if Xperia CAN give us an f-stop with a deeper DoF, AND avoid the 'fall-off' at the edges, AND utilize the full 1:1 of that CMOS chip. Here's hoping! Thanks for your great work!

So the camera is $1200 and the phone is $1800. Hmmm. Aspheric lenses are used to reduce the physical distance needed for a given focal length. And glass lenses are used to achieve a high index of refraction to do this. The f number is the ratio of the focal length to the physical aperture; so nothing to do with the size of the sensor. As MKBHD points out, they don't use all the sensor area, so what's the point in having a giant sensor?

I actually found myself preferring the images from the Xperia Pro-i rather than the iPhone 13 Pro. Even if they had slightly less detail or dynamic range, they were more pleasing to the eye especially with their colours, focus, etc. Perhaps it is a difference caused by my smartphone's display or I just actually prefer the Xperia's image it's quite surprising.

The images from the Sony were sharper and had much much more dynamic range than the iphone. Everyone is just used to looking at overprocessed images that come out of smart phones these days. The smart person would use the images from the Sony and then use an image editor like Lightroom to bump chanels to suit.

yes, they are also closer to reality. but most people are already living in a distorted reality which is amplified by social media and all the filters applied on the images, so they will prefer the distorted images of the iphone

Man, I know you are the pro here... But I STRONGLY preferred every single Sony shot over the iPhone. And as for the sensor, think about it from an manufacturing standpoint. You have a sensor that you already know, have already calibrated, can mass-produce at quality, and you have all the software for it already done! So what if you ONLY get 12 MPs for it... Wish you would have gone more into the phone. This was rather disappointing as I was excited from the first comparison... :(

Actually this is not a first, Panasonic introduced a smarthone with a 1" sensor camera about seven years ago in 2014, called the Lumix DMC-CM1 that came with a Leica branded f2.8 / 28mm equivalent lens, featured an even at the time not overly impressive Snapdragon S801 quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and sold between 700 -900 Euros here in Germany when it finally became available, running Android 5. And available it became over seven month later than Panasonic had planned in the second half of 2015. Nobody really bought the phone and in mid 2016 the phone side of this whole phone part of the project seemed mildly outdated and you were able to pick one up between for as little as 400 Euros. At the time Panasonic tried to sell some units as "camera only" in Japan, looking exactly the same but offered without the phone functionality.

The only thing that would fix it is. Sony releases a Software for Post Processing for people that want a brighter and cleaner photo. But I like the more Flatter and real photo, it show more depth. Rather than IPhone's Post Processing.

Had an iPhone 12 pro max, note 20 ultra, S21+, mi 11 ultra, op9 pro and guess what? I've decided to use Xperia 1 II as a daily just because it nails WB spot on every time. And if you don't like the softness just sharpen the image in post. Sony phones have so much better life like output then the rest. I really hate the HDR on iPhones because of what it does with skin tones and overall softness of faces. I've compared some old photos from galaxy S9 to s21+ and I really like the older ones better. Honestly the last one Samsung that had decent picture quality is note 10 imho. Can't wait for the new Sony :)

Well now being a China citizen is good enough that Xperia Pro-I only costs equivalent $899 from 22th Nov. to 6th Dec. for people who had bought and registered all three Mainland China version of Xperia 1, 1 II and 1 III. This is what I call a real money back. SONY is just the best.
