Photograph: SonyA Flagship With the JackSony Xperia 1 IIIThe Xperia 1 III costs way too much at MSRP, but its price has since come down. It\u2019s just about the only phone around with a 4K OLED 120-Hz screen, which makes it fantastic for watching movies (as fantastic as a tiny phone screen can be). It has great-sounding front-facing stereo speakers and a headphone jack when you want to plug it in. Its camera system isn\u2019t quite the best, but it encourages you to tweak photo and video settings so you can have more control over the results. If you\u2019re a photo tinkerer, this is for you. You can find pretty much any feature that\u2019s available in a high-end phone here, including wireless charging.However, 5G is limited to sub-6 5G (the slower kind), and it's only available on Verizon and T-Mobile\u2014sorry, AT&T subscribers, you're stuck on 4G LTE. The 4,500-mAh battery isn\u2019t a standout either. It lasts just a day, sometimes less if you use it a lot. It also will only get one more year of updates.What about the Xperia 1 IV? Yes, Sony has a new version. Unfortunately, the Xperia 1 IV (6\/10, WIRED Review) costs an absurd $1,598, though it frequently dips to $1,398. The 4K OLED screen gets plenty bright, fixing one of the qualms I had with the Xperia 1 III, and the battery now easily lasts a full day too. The cameras are better and share many of the same features, so they\u2019re consistent, but the imaging quality still isn\u2019t up to par with competitors. It doesn\u2019t help that Sony still isn\u2019t committing to more than two years of software support.
