The Sony Xperia 1 is a phone with a pretty good camera.
As a photographer and journalist, I find it hysterical when folks geek out hard about the image quality that cameraphones deliver. Granted, it improves with each generation, but so too do dedicated cameras. This doesn’t invalidate the advancements Sony has made with the Sony Xperia 1. Phone aside, the cameras, app ecosystem, and functionality are all quite good. If you’re a photographer with enormous paws, I can ultimately see how the Sony Xperia 1 could be the option you want. But, if you’re on the short bus like me, then it becomes a tad unwieldy. And if you’re a Sony Alpha camera user, don’t expect the same level of attention to imaging that you get from your a7 series device.
