  2. misterPAINMAKER on May 13, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Sd card support and also 3.5 jack port on a flagship smartphone. Bravo Sony.

  3. Luis V on May 13, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Only company left still giving its customers what they want without compromises

  4. yusef alcamachi on May 13, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    If this phone can make you happy then I want to be happy.

  5. Marcus Cook on May 13, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    If Verizon offered this in inexpensive payments or a free upgrade like they do for the Pixel 6, I would love to have one of these. But I would have to buy this outright and I’m not willing to pay the price of a nice laptop for a phone.

  6. RMASUPERFLY on May 13, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Finally caved in and bought this masterpiece and give rest to my XZ Premium. Sony all the way…

  7. any4003 on May 13, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Sadly this phone actually maybe more worth getting then the new S22 ultra

  8. J. H. on May 13, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    It’s now official! ´
    The new Xperia’s will be revealed May 11th!

  9. Piotr Dabrowski on May 13, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    This phone is a joke 🤣😂🤣

  10. Astref on May 13, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    I’d pay that money just for the fact that it has no notch , and if i’m not mistaken the headphone jack serves as "mic in" too 🤔

  11. 666corpse666 on May 13, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    It’s got an amazing screen but battery life is the only downside

  12. D2daK87 on May 13, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Can I put cfw on it and still use my banking app is an important one. Knox on Samsung fucks me off.

  13. Batman on May 13, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Why don’t you use it then? A?

  14. mmxc4884 on May 13, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    i only buy sony phones.

  15. Angeldlg on May 13, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Could someone tell me about the battery? is it good? i want this phone but i read that the battery drains quickly. I’m between this Sony and de S21 ultra.

  16. Nino Zárate on May 13, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Man I just bought the 13 mini, I wish I had seen this before

  17. OEAH on May 13, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    I’d gladely pay for a phone like that and I did mine will arrive tomorrow

  18. Some Random Name on May 13, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    "Let’s look at the camera. Ok, so three of them are megapixels"… 😂

  19. mbaxter22 on May 13, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Funny how no one has a problem with the small bezels! Wow it turns out all the phone manufacturers are idiots. We never needed to suffer through all this notch / hole punch bullsh*t.

  20. Why Me on May 13, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    launch XPERIA 1 IV with DEDICATED SD CARD SLOT & 2 sim card slots PLEASE :)./

  21. tal ion on May 13, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    My frist phone was a Sony Xperia Z2 I had unitl the charging port stopped working then switched to iphone and hated that I’m back on Android an okay Chinese phone but that z2 such a great phone really the only thing holding me back from going back to Sony is the price

  22. stipi69 on May 13, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Great and true review, i feel same and ill always go Sony, i still own XZ premium and the beating it can take is amazing, even took 11 minutes submerging in sea shootink 4k video on vacation 2 years back 😎 yeah its old bit still watching yt videos on 4k blows you away… and i still own noise canceling headphones from Z2 model which was back then without pair… and i could go on.

  23. Marcos San on May 13, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    I had the xperia xz1 and xz3, both excellent phones; but sony only gave ONE android upgrade? Such expensive phones and then sony gives this as a thank you. Disrespect 👎🏿

  24. McLarenMercedes on May 13, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    I purchased my first Sony phone back in 2017. Never looked at other brands since. Oh, and the ability to remote play games from my Playstation is an awesome feature.

  25. James Copeland on May 13, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    Can we all just take a minute to appreciate the 3mm jack with an 888 processor?

  26. Michael Skelton on May 13, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    I’m waiting for the Xperia 1 3 2

  27. Chocolate Pie1819 on May 13, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Samsung user here and I used to have 2 Sony phones, the Xperia z3+ and the Xperia z5 (they sucked). Not only did they extremely hot enough to fry an egg but the service centers also suck here in my country (india). I’m loving my note 10 plus so far

  28. Patrick Howie on May 13, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Volta cables suck, try getting that little tip out your phone or whatever they are built crap

  29. POWER on May 13, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Split screen feature on right side of screen near bottom so you can reach all app with thumb

  30. CONTRAdiction on May 13, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    After having had the Xperia 1 for the last couple years I also don’t think I would ever want to go back to a non 21:9 ratio phone. The tall screen makes feeds so much better because you can see so much more by default on the tall screen. Ya know like Twitter, reddit, Facebook feeds, news feeds. It’s way better everyone talks about the aspect ratio being great for movies but it’s great for most of the things you use a mobile device for. I love it.

  31. tylerrdrums on May 13, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    You’re the only person I’ve seen that acknowledges that it’s not the resolution of a typical 4K screen. I was baffled when all the other big reviewers failed to mention that

  32. x8Ball on May 13, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Just ordered it, i’ve used Sony since they worked with ericsson, they never dissapointed me!
    Cant wait for mig 1 III

  33. D d z on May 13, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    LG should come back

  34. Life on May 13, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    I wish the carriers like T Mobile carried this phone that I could pay monthly on like my Note 20 Ultra 5G. It’s BAD ASS phone but most people can’t outright afford it. I would switch from the Note to this ALL DAY LONG. It’s unfortunate. This I believe is why no one has it.

  35. Jason Lang on May 13, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    Everything Linus wanted. Yet I guarantee that he doesn’t use this phone.

  36. Invented In Scotland on May 13, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    I like Nokia xr20 mobile above the Sony.

  37. Michael Skinner on May 13, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    Does dex work with it?

  38. OsnoF on May 13, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    Get this or wait for the new one???

  39. sia a on May 13, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    will it bend?

  40. Brian Smith on May 13, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    I bought the phone on the recommendation that it is ideal for audiophiles, all that might check out fora a great deal of the specs, but once again a smartphone fails at satisfying an audiophile because the max volume is just so pathetically weak. Sony’s phone fails even before it gets started. No one is going to damage their hearing if there were an additional 7 – 10 decibels available. Samsung and Apple failed instantly also. . So, LG’s V60 thinQ and the ASUS ROG Phone are the next phones on the chopping block, let’s see if it can even make it out of the starting blocks. It appears that Dongles are just going to have to be a way of life, that’s a sad pathetic thought. iFi’s Go Blu Bluetooth Amplifier is the ultimate solution so there is some form of hope left.

  41. Shameer Malik on May 13, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    I have an Xperia 1. It’s an old phone now but it still has 4k Oled display, 21:9 aspect ratio, same design as this minus the headphone jack and I totally love this phone. My first Sony Phone. Will definitely buy Mark IV when jt comes.

  42. Bands on May 13, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    Samsung copying Apple losing the expandable memory, headphone jack..

  43. Robert Horne on May 13, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Sony phones are not allowed in BC Canada. If they were here I would buy one.

  44. Raygen Rupe on May 13, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Samsung got rid of the ability to do expandable storage literally just because it was ‘insecure.’

    I don’t care, my 32gb is NOT enough.

  45. JessikatMe on May 13, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Also Sony was one of the first ones to make wearables

  46. meocats on May 13, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    There are foldable phones. There are phones with 100W wireless charging. This is some old turd phone.

  47. Nick Lea on May 13, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    omg I can’t friggin believe we can’t change the back and apps button at the bottom …. wtf.. i was about to buy this phone but not now lol! gutted

  48. moimemesuis on May 13, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    I’m used to the stylus of the Note line of Samsung… Can I use a stylus with this phone too?

  49. Nafridisiakum on May 13, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    i just bought this phone for 800€. Finally i can have an sd card slot again and no fng edge display anymore.

  50. Norman on May 13, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    I hope sony doesn’t give up like LG just did.
