Just bought a Xperia 1 mark I as a spare phone and I must say the screen is incredible. Although you might not be able to see the difference instantly. But whenever you switch phone, you will see the difference and appreciate it's 4k resolution

Maybe Marques is getting old, I remember him saying "you won't notice a difference going from 1440p to 1080p"

The reason you can turn off 120Hz is because when 120Hz is active it switches to 1440p and is only 4K when you’re at 60Hz

Agree with the autorotate, my 5ii has the same issue lol really annoying, don't fully agree with the camera tho, yes it can get noisy sometimes which is a shame but the colors are much more natural, imo better than Samsung which put to much fake filters over it, I'm not saying it's game changing or by far the best out there but it does give nice natural and neutral colors

Soo. For you out there that haven't owned a Sony phone. Let me tell you a bit here that these (short term) tests do not reveal. I had multiple Sony phones, last one being the XZ3. I decided to then try a Samsung S20+. While the Samsungs are nice, there are just quite a few things Sony does a lot better: 1) The adaptive brightness on Samsung straight out sucks compared to the Sony phones. Annoys me how often I have to manually adjust it. And yes, this is with no screen protector covering the sensor. 2) The camera settings on the Samsung lacks the option to scale down the quality of the pictures you take. If you like me just want to save your pictures in 4 or 6MP instead of a crazy resolution that takes up all your space - no option for that. I find that extremely annoying. 3) The fingerprint reader on the back of the XZ3 was an extremely nice feature. Once you get used to it, it is extremely hard to go back to anything else. The facial recognition on the S20+ never did it for me.. 4) Overall, you can just tell that Sony put a lot more effort into customizing their software. It has a lot of options of tweaking stuff to your liking that Samsung doesn't offer. 5) Sony phones has a smart charging feature that will detect your usual battery charging pattern and will stop the charging at around 80%, only to charge the remaining final 20% right before you usually disconnect it, say early in the morning. This ensures you do not damage the battery or shorten the life of it. For me, what got me buying a Samsung was the ease of being able to repair it almost anywhere in the world. I was traveling outside Europe and broke my screen on the XZ3 - was impossible to find a place to get it repaired and had to send it back by DHL.

Hi Marques! Great review. question: please let me know if you can comment on the quality of the stabilization on the Sony cameras on this phone. Is their Stabilizing system as good as Apple's? Also, you described other Sony cameras that you have used and were not so enthusiastic about the color the noise, the sharpness. But the pictures you showed were much better than you realized in my opinion. I was looking at the center of the photos you showed of your larger camera on a tripod and it looked perfect. Obviously the whole photo can't be perfectly sharp edge to edge in most cases due to the lens position. But that is not the camera's fault if depth of field is too shallow and if there is flare or some other user factor going on. Please react if you can. And I'm anything but a Sony Fan Boy. I don't usually understand their menus etc. and have put off buying most of their gear for years.

An enthusiast would want a phone focused on specific aspects, e.g. pro-photography (cybershot), hi-res audio (walkman), video (Sony pro-video cams), etc. How else can any phone be called "enthusiast" without a focus.... unless you mean a Sony enthusiast?

I feel like the placement of the head phone jack being on the opposite side of the changing port was a poor choice. Because now you have to keep your phone upright in your pocket will using wired buds. That will lead to the charging port being vulnerable to pesky lint attacks

My Xperia XZ Premium still works well after 4 years. Battery capacity is still at 92% which is unheard of in the mobile industry. Just bought the Xperia 1 III to upgrade and its amazing. Definitely not just for enthusiast and there's no issues with it, including the auto rotate.

Sony make such shite phones that when they break and you send it back to the Sony factory not even they can fix it, as the saying goes ' Sony don't make phones ,they make televisions ' also overpriced games consoles that overheat. If you buy Sony make sure you've got a set of electrical screwdrivers and a soldering iron - good luck

The phone does it, but automatically with apps like album (Google photos in it's case), and when watching 4k content on HRpost or another app that allows the full resolution of the screen to be displayed. You don't have control over what it does with the resolution, as you do with the frame rate.
