    Sony phones are expensive because Sony pioneers R&D which many phone companies copy from and pay lawsuit later. Understand? Sony is bigger than most phone companies lol.

    Marques Can't accept the fact that Sony Xperia 1 iii is far better than their Samsumg, with ugly notch, no headphone jack, no charger, no memory card slot, 60Hz display smartphones. Easy to see untrusted review.

    The comments on this video CLEARLY shows that Apple (and Samsung but mostly Apple) is ALWAYS in peoples minds RENT FREE. This video is about Sony, this had absolutely nothing to do with other companies. But when you criticize Samsung and Apple, you’re seen as objective. The tech community is full of hypocrites.

    If a DSLR was a phone, this would be it. So, the photo will only be as good as the photographer. If you're pictures look dull it's because you've not taken the time to get the correct lighting or angle. This phone is NOT going to over process your photos like an iPhone and every other smartphone does. It's not going to bring detail out of the shadows using computational photography. If you're lazy and want that, get an S21 or iPhone. THIS phone is for the team Pro photographer who knows what they are doing. Hence the price.

    I think it's great how MKHD is talking about Sony phones but it's sad how he undersells or omits features only to criticize them when he's just using it wrong. If some of these features were on an iPhone or Samsung he would probably hype it up and actually delve deeper into it.

    No doubt about it. Sony's innovations are always copied by other brands. What's worse is that they take all the fame because of marketing. Remember the 3 layer stacked cmos sensor (960 fps)? 3D creator? Bravia Engine/X-Reality engine?
