that sucks, need 4 years OS update


Hasn’t this always been Sony’s approach? I guess whoever is fine with it won’t mind, it is a shame though. As long as they launch the phone with the latest OS update and security patches come in time.





Yeah, but as most of the manufacturers are giving 4 years updates and phones don't need to get replaced for 5 years.. Sony should also do it since they are taking premium and more over only fans like us will buy their phones.

Apparently 1 IV is not selling that well in China and that is so easy to understand. 1 IV is better than 1 III in every merrit but 1 IV should have been 1 III unforuntately. There is 0 (zero) real reason why 1 III couldn't have come with 120fps on all three modules. There is a 0 (zero) reason why it couldn't have done HDR burst in PP. There is 1 (one) reason why it couldn't have Video Pro on the launch day and that is PRO-I but it should have got the update with Video Pro.

Anyway Sony botched 1 IV by making it look exactly like 1 III instead of givign it some crazy color option like Gold or Red or XZ3 Burgundy to differentiate itself from 1 III in appereance at aleast.

Another 2 more great reviews. These do look legit.

dome typical YouTube reviewers complain about price. The best early previews non-production units are from cineographers or photographers whom do this for a living not just to sit for YouTube. One buys the IV either because you’ve got money as a tech fan or to make you money in your career.

I have to agree. The iterations are becoming smaller and smaller. To the average buyer, I doubt they'd see much difference between the 1 ii and the 1 iv, but it is quite easy to differentiate between the two with a completely new design.

Playing it too safe may backfire.

Taiwanese review with photos. Photos looked somewhat different compared with xperia 1III. (Reddish vs greenish) yet somehow clearer

Congratulations! Enjoy it!
One thing I miss about buying Androids is these sorts of deals, even though I have a pair of Sennheisers, it would be cool if Apple did a 14 Pro Max + AirPod Max deal, but there is a greater chance of pigs flying.
