Our Sony Xperia 1 V Review

Offering the best of everything Sony has to offer, the Xperia 1 V is powerful and high-quality in every aspect - a true dark horse that rivals the titans of Apple, Samsung and Google.

Sony Xperia 1 V: Display

Sony describes the image quality for the 1 V as ‘unprecedented’, with better quality in low light on its 1644 x 3840 pixel 4K HDR OLED 120Hz refresh rate display.

Sony Xperia 1 V: Camera

A trio of rear cameras provides outstanding pictures and videos. It includes a 48 MP wide, a 12 MP telephoto and a 12 MP ultrawide camera setup.

The front camera is a 12 MP wide camera to deliver crisp selfies and rivals that of iPhones and Samsung.

As for video quality, both rear and front cameras can record in 4K at 30 and 60 FPS, with the rear camera being able to go up to 120 FPS HDR.

Sony Xperia 1 V: Design

The Xperia 1 V follows in its predecessor's footsteps for size, coming in at 6.5 inches tall, but is slightly heavier at 187g compared to the Xperia 1 IV’s 185g.

It also features Gorilla Glass Victus 2 for its glass front, the latest iteration in Gorilla Glass’ range upon the phone's release.

Sony Xperia 1 V: Performance

The Sony Xperia 1 V runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which was still the quickest and most used chipset for Android phones when the device was released.

The Xperia 1 V also boasts its revolutionary Exmor T for mobile image sensor, a next-generation sensor that produces next-generation imaging quality comparable to that of full-frame cameras.

Sony Xperia 1 V: Features

A side-mounted fingerprint highlights the features found on the Xperia 1 V, as well as an accelerometer, gyro, compass and more.

How much is the Sony Xperia 1 V?

As it is the flagship of Sony’s Xperia range, its price tag matches the likes of other major brands’ flagship phones, such as the iPhone 15 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra.

The Sony Xperia 1 V was available to purchase for £1299 when released, although you can find it for cheaper these days if you’re looking to purchase the device outright.

Sony Xperia 1 V: Our verdict

The Sony Xperia 1 V is a brilliant phone that doesn’t get enough recognition. Any camera enthusiast would enjoy this device or really any Sony mobile as they often marry their mobile technology together with their camera technology.

But even if you’re not a big camera phone guy, the Xperia 1 V has an impeccable display and sublime performance, delivering a fantastic device that properly rivals that of the big guns’ flagship phones.
