Sometimes when you see a phone in the store you just have to know more. As I was walking around Best Buy this weekend, I have to say I was wowed by the new Sony Xperia 1 cell phone. As I walked by it, its sleek design drew me in but after talking to some of the knowledgeable Best Buy Associates and trying it out myself, I have to say that my first glance impression was correct, and this phone definitely is one that I would check out for yourself. Why? Let me tell you!
This phone is FAST, it is running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. For those of you that are not techy, that means that it has a octa-core processor and 6GB of RAM that will deliver outstanding overall performance for opening and running applications, flipping through menus and more.
The Sony Xperia 1 also is running the Android 9.0 Pie OS which adapts to you and how you want to use your phone. This is like having your own AI system which is learning your preferences as you go. This is not a static thing as the learning that happens makes your experience get better over time, and it keeps things running smoother and longer.
This phone is compatible with GSM carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. It also works with GSM SIM kits, including Cricket Wireless, Tracfone, Net10, H2O, AT&T Prepaid, and Simple Mobile.*
This phone is also running with 4G LTE speed that give you fast web connection for downloading apps, streaming content, and staying connected on social media.
The phone is huge! It has a 6.5″ 4K HDR OLED touch screen with 3840 x 1644 resolution which is an extra-large screen that is matched with a slim body to comfortably fit in your hand. The 21:9 extended display ensures easier multitasking and immersive viewing. Gorilla Glass 6 resists shocks and scratches.
This large screen is also matched with a 12.0MP triple-lens camera system which offers 21:9 cinema ratio, 4K HDR movie recording, and 2x optical zoom to capture details without losing quality. Also includes an 8.0MP front-facing camera for self-portraits and videos. Along with this you get a Motion that lets you capture slow-motion videos at up to 960 frames per second for staggering films as well as the BIONZ X image processing engine which offers you powerful digital image processing produces even more vivid colors and ensure contrasts are high.
As someone that loves to take pictures, all of this is amazing but the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization rocks as it is always a challenge when you think you get the best image and it is blurry and this technology keeps your images free from motion blur with SteadyShot image stabilization.
The phone also gives you plenty of space for memory with a 128GB internal memory plus microSD slot and you can even expand the storage by up to 512GB by adding a microSD card.
There is even more than this. The Best Buy Associate told me about the superior sound in this phone too. He told me that is using DSEE HX™ which improves the quality of low-resolution music files. The smart amplifier delivers a loud, rich sound through the speaker.
It also offers superior security such as allowing your fingerprint keeps your phone secure along with other safety features that keep you feeling safe.
