Sony Xperia 1 III Evaluation: A “individual” micro -single phone
When it comes to cameras, Sony should be a good heart of many photography enthusiasts and photographers, and in the hearts of many consumers, they have a pivotal position. In the field of mobile phones, Sony’s most loud name may also originate from excellent image sensor technology. Whether it is high -end flagship or affordable people, the “IMX series sensor” is always indispensable. In contrast, Volkswagen’s awareness of Sony mobile phones is relatively low.
Unlike the mobile phone brand that is always trying to meet the consumer market, Sony mobile phones can be said to be truly unique. Over the years, I have always adhered to the style of “I am doing myself”. At the moment when the phenomenon of homogeneity of mobile phones is becoming increasingly serious, this persistence has made it a clear stream.
Recently, Sony Xperia 1 III was officially released. As the latest flagship launched by Sony, the Xperia 1 III is highly integrated with the appearance characteristics of the previous generation. OLED HDR display, Snapdragon 888 mobile chip, permeable long -focus lens, etc. are very eye -catching. At the same time, the machine also received technical support of Sony in image, screen, audio, and even industrial design, which brought you a different flagship experience. As for where the difference is different, let’s take a look at it together.
The newly different design, the full “Sony” taste
Different from mostly the uniform design of mobile phones. In appearance, Sony Xperia 1 III has a clear and independent design style. Of course, this design style is not deliberately in order to pursue “alternative”, but from Sony’s consistent design inheritance and aesthetic concept, so if you are Sony’s old powder, you will feel when you see the Sony Xperia 1 III at first glance. Inexplicably familiar.
First of all, in the front design, Sony Xperia 1 III is obviously different from the current mainstream full -scale screen products. Its screen is neither bangs nor digging holes, but a design scheme with traditional forehead+chin. Typical straight screens are used. Design, at the same time, it is also equipped with upper and lower speakers. The opening of the speaker is also outward. The word “unique” is written everywhere.
The back is very close to the previous generation, but the square opening of the image module indicates that Sony Xperia 1 III is the world’s first smartphone in the world that is equipped with ‘dual PD’ sensor in the ‘permeable long -focus lens’. The shell part is made of frosted glass. The fingers are delicate and smooth, and it is not easy to contaminate fingerprints. The “SONY” brand logo uses bright glass effects, which is very prominent, adding some recognition to the back of the fuselage. The middle frame is made of metal, and the contour is very square, but there is a curved transition at the edge. In addition, the proportion of the long body of 21: 9 and the weight of 187g, and the thickness of 8.2mm are very comfortable when holding one hand.
All keys are concentrated on the right side of the fuselage, there are four. The first time people may be curious why there are so many? As you can see, from top to bottom, there are volume keys, fingerprint/power supply, voice assistant, and camera shutter button, which are very diverse.
Among them, the camera entities are still two -stage buttons. In the camera mode, half press is focusing, all pressing is the shutter, which is exactly the same as the shutter on the camera. During daily use, long pressing can call the camera directly, which is also very convenient. On the left side of the fuselage is the iconic fast -disassembly card slot, which has the Microsd storage expansion function. At the same time, it also supports the SIM card hot insertion. It does not need to restart the phone to insert or pull the card.
At the bottom of the fuselage is the Type-C charging port and microphone, the top of the fuselage retains a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is compatible with wired headphones. This is rare among the current flagship products.
In terms of color matching, Sony Xperia 1 III has three colors of black, gray, and purple to choose from. The color matching is elegant and stylish, exquisite and restrained. In addition, Sony Xperia 1 III also supports IP65/68 dustproof and waterproof design. The display screen uses Corning Gorilla Glass Victus ™. It has been further strengthened in terms of falling and scratch protection. The overall durability of the mobile phone is very good.
From the design point of view, Sony Xperia 1 III still maintains Sony’s unique design and exquisite workmanship. When the mobile phone is still in the quagmire at the moment, the Sony Xperia 1 III has a different charm. While catering to the user’s aesthetics, it also retains the iconic design language. For new users, such a design is undoubtedly attractive.
4K display master color, professional sound quality performance is good
Although it is very different from the mainstream screen design, the screen of Sony Xperia 1 III is still the most luxurious mobile phone screen. Sony Xperia 1 III uses a 21: 9 4K HDR OLED screen, and the 120Hz refresh rate is also added for the first time. This is the only flagship mobile phone that supports 4K/120Hz in the world.
At the same time, it also has a 240Hz touch sampling rate, supports 10bit depth (8 shake 10), and the local peak brightness is 1300nit. There is no doubt that this 6.5 -inch 4K HDR OLED120HZ display is definitely a top -level existence in quality. It is not so much a mobile phone screen, it is better to say that Sony stuffed the TV into the mobile phone.
In terms of experience, 21: 9 with fish screens is undoubtedly suitable for watching movies. Compared to the screen of 16: 9, more display content can be carried, and the upper and lower sides of the image will not appear black edges, so that the picture can be able to be able to be able to show the picture. Fill the entire screen, and because there is no bangs and water drops to cover, the immersion of movie viewing is also stronger.
In addition to the video, many games have gradually begun to increase the adaptation of the 21: 9 ratio screen. We have experienced a “Call of Duty Summoning Mobile Games” here. After entering the game, you can see that the screen is filled with the entire screen. Deformation, there are no black border on the left and right sides of the screen, and the game vision is wider than the 16: 9 screen. This means that we can see more pictures. In competitive games, we will find the enemy step by step. Bring more advantages.
There is no need to say more about 4K. 4K resolution has a clearer and delicate display effect, so that you can see more details when you browse pictures and watching videos. reality. At present, in addition to Sony, the current mainstream high -end flagships are only 2K standards in terms of resolution. In the future, 4K will become the exclusive label of Sony flagship for a long time.
We use Sony Xperia1 III to play a HD 4K video 21: 9 at station B. The playback effect is clear and smooth, the picture quality is also excellent, and the movie viewing experience is more immersive.
In addition to higher resolution, the high refresh rate screen has also become the mainstream standard of Android flagship phones. Sony Xperia 1 III also supports the 120Hz refresh rate. Thanks to the blessing of high screen brushing, when using Sony Xperia1 III to brush the circle of friends, Weibo, browse web or operating navigation menus, the screen will indeed be smoother and smooth. In addition, in terms of games, Xperia 1 III also supports 240Hz jitter blur and reduce technology, which can refresh the screen at a speed of 240 times per second, which can significantly reduce the drag shadow and screen delay, which brings players a very smooth visual experience Essence
If you have higher requirements for graphic color accuracy, you can also manually select “Master Mode” in the setting option. This feature is provided by Cinealta to provide technical support. Users can get more professional color accuracy under the “master mode”. Not only will it help to improve the video viewing experience, you can even use it as a monitor of Sony Micro -single, it also has the ability to provide extremely professional display support for creating scenes.
Next, let’s talk about the performance of Xperia 1 III in terms of sound quality.
First of all, in design, Xperia 1 III has two places that I like and appreciate very much. One is the front dual -boom, which is 40%higher than the previous generation. Headset interface.
Unlike the layout of the dual speakers of most mobile phones, the dual speakers of Sony Xperia 1 III are on both sides of the upper and lower frames of the screen, instead of on the upper and lower middle frames, and the speaker is out of the front, which truly achieves “the sound comes.” In addition, thanks to the unique dual layout, we will not cover the speakers when we hold the mobile phone with both hands. When playing games or chasing the drama, even if you do n’t need a headset, you can use the speaker that comes with Sony Xperia 1 III directly. Bring a strong sound experience.
With the rise of mobile phones and the wave of non -pervasion, in the high -end flagship field, 3.5mm opening is almost difficult to see again. Sony is one of the few manufacturers who insist on retaining 3.5mm headphone jacks. It is undeniable that the TWS headset is really difficult to achieve the real high -fidelity true effect in terms of sound quality. Therefore, the existence of the 3.5mm interface is a good thing for the majority of music enthusiasts.
Sony Xperia 1 III also introduced Dsee Ultimate audio technology to improve digital audio quality in real time through AI technology to close to high resolution levels, bringing richer and full listening experiences. This function also supports wired or wireless headphones to play built -in or streaming media music.
Similarly, Xperia 1 III is pre-installed with a selected Hi-Res Music APP. This APP is launched in 2018, mainly focusing on Hi-Res streaming services. Taiwan can listen to the original sound music that supports 360 degrees on -site sound effects at any time, and enjoy the ultra -high -quality sound quality experience.
All in all, whether it is the screen display effect or the sound quality experience, Xperia 1 III is an out -of -the -box audio and video entertainment artifact. If you are a very picky user of high -quality audio -visual equipment, then 4K HDR OLED 120Hz refresh The Xperia 1 III of HI-Res high-resolution audio, LDAC, and DSee Ultimate AI audio optimization technology supports Hi-Res, and Dsee Ultimate AI AI AI AI AI AI AI AI. Of course, for professionals, Xperia 1 III’s strong “creator attributes” will also provide us with the most accurate and professional assistance to help creators better express their intentions. This is also its good play.
Is it a mobile phone or a micro single? The gospel of photography enthusiasts
When everyone is full screen, Sony Xperia 1 III still uses non -heterogeneous screen design; when high -end flagships are abandoning 3.5mm headphone jacks, Sony Xperia 1 III is reserved; when 2K+120Hz is becoming the mainstream of the industry in the industry , 4K+120Hz Sony Xperia 1 III has created a new historical record of mobile phone … If you think you think this special “persistence” is already all Xperia 1 III, that can only be said that you want to be simple Essence
When the mobile phones all over the world are in the direction of “fool -style” photos and videos, the Sony Xperia series makes people open with the mobile phone camera’s “micro -monograph” operation. We have evaluated a lot of mobile phones, but the camera of Sony Xperia 1 III has always been the most interesting. On the Sony Xperia 1 III, engineers from mobile phones and camera departments jointly developed this advanced image system, so that Xperia 1 III has the image performance comparable to the professional micro -single. Not only makes the shooting more professional and efficient, the familiar micro -single industry design is more in line with the operating habits of professional photographers. Of course, although such a design has won the favor of Sony pink and professionals, it also makes users who like one -click straight out shout “I can’t understand” and “can’t play”. I have to say that this is also a choice.
From the perspective of specifications, the Xperia 1 III is equipped with a three -shot and four focal length image system with a main camera of 12 million, aperture F1.7, an equivalent of 24mm; an ultra -wide -angle 12 million, aperture F2.2, an equivalent of 16mm. In terms of telephoto, it is a highlight. The 12 million subtained telephoto energy switch between equivalent 70mm, aperture F2.3 and equivalent 105mm, and aperture F2.8.
Sony Xperia 1 III’s submersible long -focus lens supports dual -core focusing. When we need to shoot the target in the distance, we can also achieve fast focusing, which is suitable for shooting people and things. At the same time, the three -shot four -focus imaging system also supports advanced technologies such as real -time tracking, high -speed continuous shooting, and AI super resolving zoom technology. In addition, there are Zeiss T*coating blessing, which can effectively suppress the emergence of ghost shadows.
Real -time eye focus
Of course, thanks to excellent focus speed and focus accuracy, and the blessing of AI technology, Sony Xperia 1 III also supports real -time eye focus, which can be used to shoot people or animals. When using, press the shutter button halfway, the green focus box will appear, the focus response is very fast. The photographer can even do some large movements or even cover one of the eyes, which can be accurately captured. This function is quite practical, especially for children or small pets used to shoot active children, which can be said to be unfavorable and very practical.
Real -time tracking
It is worth mentioning that Sony Xperia 1 III not only supports the full -focus real -time eye -catching, but also covers the focus function in real time to the telephoto end. When using, you only need to lightly click the screen and choose the shooting object to achieve fast chase. It is not difficult to find from the intercepted movement. In the 2.9 times long focus, the real -time tracking function is still very stable. During the move, the “small green box” was always locked tightly on the dog. There is no doubt that the addition of this function has given the telephoto lens a stronger shooting ability. In the face of the distance from the distance, it can also be easily captured, which greatly improves the film rate.
Compared to the previous generation, this time the Sony Xperia 1 III completed the integration of the camera function, only retaining the camera entrance of the “Master of Photography”. At the first glance of the camera interface, friends who often play with SLR or micro -single are probably familiar. Users can choose to automatically set or manually control ISO, shutter, white balance, and output RAW like using microstatic cameras or SLR cameras. Format files and other functions are more professional than the Pro mode of some mobile phones.
In the “gear” area in the upper left corner, “BASIC (Basic Mode)”, “Auto (Auto)”, “P (Program Automatic)”, “S (Swallow Priority)”, “M (Manual Exposure)” Waiting for multiple options, the four focal lengths support manual switching, the shutter duration covers 1/8000-30 seconds, and the highest sensitivity can reach ISO 3200. The basic mode is similar to our daily mobile camera, and the remaining four gears are close to micro -single or SLR cameras. In short, the function of the “Master of Photography” is actually to “move” the shooting process on the micro single. It is no wonder that many users call it “micro -single mobile phone”.
16mm lens shooting proof
24mm lens shooting proof
Judging from the actual shooting experience, the 24mm wide -angle lens of Sony Xperia 1 III has a very good imaging performance. It can be clearly seen that Sony is more loyal to the real color of the restoration of the scene. The control is very good, and in terms of dynamic scope, it is closer to its own camera style, and the transition between the dark and bright parts is very natural and accurate.
70mm lens shooting proof
105mm lens shooting proof
In terms of telephoto samples, 70mm and 105mm can be described as “non -destructive” picture quality. If you want to shoot far -point scenes, these two focal lengths are undoubtedly the most suitable. From the perspective, it is still very comfortable to use the Sony Xperia 1 III to shoot the distant scenery, it is easy to compose the composition, and the picture quality is also good. The text on the distant buildings can be clearly visible. The details are very good. The details of the buildings and leaves have been well retained, and the overall view of the picture is also very good.
It is worth mentioning that the 3D ITOF sensor carried by Sony Xperia 1 III can effectively enhance the depth of field control and enhance the layering and three -dimensional sense of the screen. We filmed a branch with a 105mm focal length. The sample main body was clear and the background was blurred and natural. The layers between the two were clear and not obtrusive. It can be seen that as a professional imaging manufacturer, Sony’s optimization and adjustment of photos is still very good.

24mm lens night scene sample
In terms of night scenes, how to balance brightness and details is a big problem. Judging from the actual shooting effect, Sony is pursuing the real restoration of the naked eye. It is very good to suppress the highlights of the light source, and the details of the dark part have also been retained to the maximum.
In addition to static photography, Sony Xperia 1 III provides the “photography master” function. In terms of camera, Sony Xperia 1 III also brings the “Master Master” function. , Added 4K HDR 120FPS video recording, providing strong and professional video shooting capabilities.
The film master defaults to 4K resolution shooting, of course, you can also manually adjust to 2K resolution. The menu of the Master APP is also very professional. During the video recording process, the recording duration, recording electroelects, focal lengths, ISO, shutter speed and other information will be displayed on the viewing interface. Common parameters are concentrated on the right, and the tentacles can be easily adjusted.
All in all, Sony Xperia 1 III is a real “micro -single mobile phone”. Both operations and imaging performances are more professional, and they are very highly playable, which is very suitable for photography enthusiasts to choose from. For friends who have not been exposed to Sony mobile phones, if you just want to simply record some daily life, the basic model can fully meet everyone’s shooting needs. Of course, I personally recommend everyone to try to use the shooting method provided by the “Master of Photography”, which may bring us a lot of new experiences.
Snapdragon 888 leads, the ultimate performance is not lacking
In terms of performance, Sony Xperia 1 III is equipped with a flagship Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, which supports up to 12GB of memory and 256GB flash memory. The core hardware specifications do not lose any flagship products. We conducted a running score test through Geekbench. From the data point of view, Sony Xperia 1 III single -core score was 1105, and the multi -core score was 3517, which was in line with our expectations of the Snapdragon 888 flagship.
Running scores can only be used as a reference. To a certain extent, the game performance can better reflect the actual performance of a mobile phone. In the game testing session, we selected “Call of Duty” as the test object, and passed the authoritative test software Perdog to the frame rate test of Sony Xperia 1 III. Set up high -definition, turn on the limit frame rate, and other special effects are fully opened.
Sony Xperia 1 III real -time frame rate
From the perspective of frame rates, the overall performance of Sony Xperia 1 III is still quite good. The game is basically stable between 60FPS and no obvious fluctuations. Even in some fierce game scenarios, it is quite stable.
It is worth mentioning that Sony Xperia 1 III also supports the “game mode”, Sony called it “game enhancer”. After entering the “game enhancer”, you can find the same cross -key logo in the upper left corner of the game. Click on to switch the game mode. In the menu, players can adjust the performance mode of the game, realize fast search and screenshot screening, etc., which are very convenient and humane.
In terms of battery life, Sony Xperia 1 III is equipped with a 4500mAh battery, which supports “power -saving excellent energy”. It can optimize the battery life of specific APPs to avoid a large number of apps spent a large number of apps in the background. From the actual test, Sony Xperia 1 III consumes 25%of power after 90 minutes of game, and after 90 minutes of video playback, power consumption is 21%. In the 5 -hour battery life (50%screen brightness, 50%volume, connection, connection The office wifi, room temperature 25 °), Sony Xperia 1 III stopped from a full power state to the final stop of 25%. There is no big problem in daily use.
In terms of charging, Sony Xperia 1 III supports 30W USB PD fast charging. We light up the power of Sony Xperia 1 III for the charging test. It is charged to 27%in 15 minutes and 53%in 30 minutes. need. It is worth mentioning that the machine can also support wireless charging and reverse charging, with high charging flexibility.
Finally, there is something:
The product power of Sony Xperia 1 III has made great progress compared to the previous generation. With the excellent performance of the Snapdragon 888, three -shot and four -focal length image system and 4K 120Hz OLED direct screen, it is more amazing than imagined.
Of course, if you are Sony Old Fan, Sony Xperia 1 III is simply tailor -made. The appearance design of the “So” taste, professional video performance, and the image system with creative desires. I believe that Lao Suo Fan will inevitably love it. If you are a pure passenger, I believe that it will be attracted by its maverick. Sony Xperia 1 III is still an out -of -the -box audio and video entertainment, and has a powerful hardware configuration, and compared to other flagships, Xperia 1 III is indeed very individual and highly recognizable, so when the budget is sufficient, it is an ideal choice.
