System Performance

System performance of the Xperia 1 shouldn’t result in many surprises as it’s mainly dictated by the Snapdragon 855 SoC as well as the software stack of the device.

Overall, the Xperia 1 behaves in line with other Snapdragon 855 devices. In fact I’d say it seems to behave the most like the LG G8 in terms of our performance numbers in the benchmarks which would point out a similar BSP version to the one that LG uses, meaning not quite as refined as what we saw on the Snapdragon Galaxy S10.

Overall, performance on the Xperia 1 was very good an in line with most other S855 devices this year, which should be a good place to be for any device.

    Works only assuming your phone has an integrated DAC (Sony phones and many others do, Pixels don't).

    I agree, I've been with Samsung for two phones in a row but now the ROG Phone 2 is looking more and more competitive, I just need a case to cover up most of the ugliness in the back...

    Absolutely no reason for those supermassive bezels.

    They're not "supermassive", just ~2017, which is entirely acceptable coming from a Note8, compared to what a supermassive downgrade removal of the headphone jack is.

    Useless "4K" screen, minus the headphone jack. The millennials will love it.

    Or you are just too stupid to realize that higher resolutions are completely better for everything!

    Needs to be orange too!

    You WOULD want it to be orange, Ms. Aran.

    I do like to see more compact android phones but I don't think many companies will be willing to invest to create a new model for a niche market.

    that would mean they will just be spending money on something that might not get sold.. unless of course there is an already identified customer base for it.
