5 best Sony smartphones

Japanese traditions in modern interior

Sony has long been engaged in the production of mobile phones. For a long time, she created devices in collaboration with the Swedish Ericsson. But now the Japanese have taken full control of the production. Their modern smartphones are distinguished by corporate identity and good performance.

The name of Xperia smartphones comes from the word "experience", and was first used in Xperia X1 advertising - in the slogan "I (Sony Ericsson) Xperia the best" ("experience" is translated into Russian as "experience").

In our ranking - the best models of smartphones from Sony.

The best of SONY flagships

Sony Xperia XZ1
23 970

What exactly doesn’t take away from SONY smartphones is its distinctive design. Some people like it, some don't, we note that the latest version of the Japanese brand concept (Loop Surface) is most successful both in terms of ergonomics and in terms of the elegance of solving purely technical problems.

Now the fans of the brand have to wait until the programmers of the company manage to fully unleash the potential of their own production of photosensors. Alas, the camera part of the Xperia XZ1 traditionally produces an ambiguous impression. On the one hand, she has such “chips” as super-slow shooting with currently record 960 frames per second or a predictive mode, which makes it harder to “miss” the most successful frame, on the other hand, the quality of the images themselves is still inferior to the results of the flagships of other A-brands. Well, at least with the autonomy of the utelephone, everything is in order, despite the relatively modest battery capacity. True, the improvement of the corresponding indicators was achieved, including, due to the deliberate “braking” of the chip, so the Xperia XZ1 does not shine in the benchmarks.

Main advantages:
  • good autonomy;
  • "Advanced" photo / video parts;
  • high-quality sound path;
  • convenient fingerprint scanner;
  • gigabit lte.
  • clearly overpriced;
  • design on the fan.

If someone does not like the large frames at the top and bottom - you instantly appreciate them when working with a smartphone in the landscape position.

The best compact smartphone SONY

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact
25 590

In fact, this smartphone has no equivalent Android alternative. If the other brands of small-sized models are satisfied with the “stuffing” easier, then the latest Compact from SONY differs from its older “brother” only in the screen, the body material, the front camera, and the modem part. The first is already a kind of proprietary standard (diagonal of 4.6 inches and HD resolution), providing a significant increase in autonomy due to lower energy consumption for the backlight. The body is made of special glass polymer, and it remains to be seen whether the metal will be more practical in this quality. Sensor frontalki has a smaller number of megapixels, but it has a wide-angle lens. Well, to realize the potential of gigabit LTE, except within the Garden Ring, is nowhere. In this case, all the advantages of the flagship are present in full: the most powerful hardware platform, an excellent sound path and the main camera, able to independently respond to movement or a smile, and also capable of shooting video at an incredible speed.

Main advantages:
  • comfortable sizes;
  • very productive "stuffing";
  • high-quality sound;
  • fingerprint scanner in the power button;
  • high autonomy.
  • unsuccessful SIM card tray;
  • no dvuhsimochnoy version;
  • high price.

Finally, something has changed "in the conservatory," and now you do not have to limit yourself to GSM networks, and turn off Wi-Fi to save battery power.

The best SONY tablet

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra 32GB
19 890

Recently, in relation to smartphones SONY, a sign of the big screen is "Ultra" in the model name. An interesting feature of the company's current phablet / smart card / tablet is a peculiar version of frameless design that does not violate the main canons of Loop Surface. At the same time, the traditional panels above and below the screen have not gone away, but the Xperia XA1 Ultra really has almost no side frames. A relatively productive Helio P20 is used as a hardware platform for the device, but I would also like to have a more powerful battery pack. Alas, the Japanese this season are guided by a capacity indicator of 2700 mAh. For flagship chips, made on 10-nanometer process technology, it is enough, here we have the classic "sore" smartphones of this brand. Of the other drawbacks, it is impossible not to mention the absence of a fingerprint scanner - for a device with such a price tag, this is simply beyond comprehension. And absolutely no gate - the front camera has optical stabilization, but the main one does not.

Main advantages:
  • optical stabilization at the front camera;
  • separate slot for memory card;
  • conditionally frameless design.
  • no fingerprint scanner;
  • does not have protection against moisture and dust;
  • mediocre autonomy;
  • Well, a very immodest price.
