Sony Xperia 1 V review

May 11, 2023


There are many flagship phones to choose from nowadays, but there is just one made for both casual and professional photographers. It’s the one with a timeless design with excellent grip, top-notch cameras with a hardware shutter key, a 4K display, and front-facing stereo speakers. Yes, it’s a Sony Xperia 1, the fifth of its line.

The Sony Xperia 1 V is an incremental upgrade over the Xperia 1 IV, but given how good that one was, there is no surprise. Still, the 1 V brings the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, now with a better cooling system and a promise for less throttling and no overheating.
