    I've had my Xperia 1 for almost a week now so I'll be happy to try and answer any questions people may have.

    I know there's also a few others on here with Xperia 1's so I'm sure we can all help to answer any specific questions...

    Maybe some overall thoughts rather than answering questions?
    I got mine yesterday so not had much time with it. But camera performance could be better IMO. It's also a little slow processing photos.

    Portrait mode looks a bit on the poor side compared to competitors.

    Battery life? Looks to be just ok for me but not even 24 hours useage yet.

    Why are the cameras still not quite up to snuff despite Sony making a big deal of their joining of the camera and smartphone divisions?!

    Sony always make a deal of the camera every time, but in real world use it's never up to standard.
    It's ok, don't get me wrong.
    But it's slow to process images and there's always visible noise in the shots.
    When you compare it to taking photos with a Pixel, it's night and day difference.

    I'd agree with most of what you've written above.

    I'm coming from a Huawei mate 20 pro by the way...

    The battery life on the Xperia 1 is ok but not great (certainly not compared to Huawei). Gets me through the day though and can usually get around 4 - 5 SoT...just. I suppose that's about right for 3300 maH battery and a 4k screen. It's only been 6 days though so things might improve....

    Charging times are good but again not as quick as the Huawei.

    Screen is nice, looks sharp but it is a shame that you can't change the look of the screen, vivid, warm, cool etc etc.

    Feel of the phone is good. I don't notice the phone being too big or anything, feels natural and I like the big screen. Makes my mate 20 pro feel podgy when I use it.

    Speakers sound decent.

    Audio quality to my BT headphones (not Sony ones yet as still waiting for those) is very good but I'm not sure I notice it being much better than other phones, not that that is a bad thing.

    I like the os, seems to be quick and responsive. Near stock experience. Needs a dark mode though.

    I'm really hoping the cameras get an update of sorts. Low light it seems to struggle. Best bet in all conditions is to go onto manual mode and put HDR on. It doesn't seem to be an option in standard modes.

    Wide angle lens tends to have the fish eye effect more so than the Huawei.

    Still getting used to it all. I do like it but I think they could've done some things better, but hopefully a firmware update can help sort the cameras??

    I have just bought the phone on O2 in London UK,the phone is nice in the hand but can feel a bit cumbersome at some times,it would be nce if the speakers were a bit more punchy as they tend to sound a bit weak for a so called high end device,the fingerprint sensor could do with a functional feature like all of the other flagship phones ie being used to scroll or pulling down the notification shade,the fingerprint sensor is in the perfect place for such things.Photo's come out crisp & sharp and the audio experience via wired or bluetooth earphones are second to none.

    When you get the wh-1000xm3, you'll appreciate the sound quality I promise.

    It helps that Sony LDAC codec is built into Android now. Increases sq.

    Make sure you configure the headphones using the app. Set for sq over connection quality. Also select dsee on. Lastly, make sure you listen with ANC off whenever you get a chance, because the headphones really sing when you turn ANC off!
