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.

    "I use it whenever I can, especially when I'm at work where i need to keep the phone charge."

    As I understand it, these sorts of batteries are limited by the number of charge cycles, irregardless of how much charge is made each time. IOW, repeated teeny charges chew up that limit long before the battery is really dead.

    That's not correct. A charge cycle is made up of 100% of the capacity of the battery. It doesn't matter if it's one 100% charge, two 50% charges, or ten 10% charges. Each of those count as one charge cycle. That's a bit of an oversimplification, but what's important is that a series of small charges are not each an entire charge cycle.

    Wow, I didn't realize some people still use "irregardless".

    You're doing it all wrong. Well the tech tree's grown in the wrong direction thanks to Apple's greed too. There's supposed to be two C ports, keep a magnetic adapter plugged in one and use headphones in the other, or if you actually just use BT then keep the C port plugged with a magnetic adapter and use magnetic cords, they work like Magsafe only they also transfer data. Hold the adapter close to the cord and it attaches automatically, you could charge your phone, use it in your hand, and hold that toddler with the other.
    That I can't give up the magnetic charging is a major reason why I won't consider any device without a headphone jack, the C port is always occupied and pulling the magnetic adapter out then inserting a C-3.5 adapter is ridiculous and unacceptable.

    That sounds OK, but wireless charging PLUS two ports sounds even better.
  • s.yu - Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - link

    Yup, and I'd like a kitchen sink too.

    If it has wireless charging, guess what else it has? Plugged in charging too. It's not a one or the other, it's both. You get the option of both. Just because you don't use it, doesn't mean it's a useless feature. Just useless to some ppl.

    I don't care much about the camera in the phone, as I have a better point and shoot. So quality of it doesn't matter to me, but doesn't negate that other people want a good camera in the phone. So of course, some ppl will grumble about it.

    No, it's so you can charge the phone with one hand, it takes only 1 second, as opposed to 3-5 seconds plugging and replugging my cable each time. Phone is basically at 100% all the time. and not need to plug the cable in, wiggle it around, and eventually bust the USB-C port. Those ports and their internal assemblies are quite fragile. It also doesn't need to add any thickness, as the wireless charging pad can be inside an external case, wired to the phone through a contact pad like on an older Xperia.

    No babbling about how you've personally never broken one, please. USB port is one of the most common fixes, apart from screen. Anandtech users are supposed to be power-users, yet you keep spending $900 on phones lacking basic features.

    lol @ no headphone jack. what a failure for a device with a resolution so clearly intended for movie watching.

    This makes choosing the next phone so much easier. Galaxy S10 for the high end, or Pixel 3A for less money.
