But not on my phone, feels like GSMArena became one of these sites that blocks stuff if you don’t use their stupid app (Reddit being THE BIGGEST offender on that regard)
I hate it, I don’t want a zillion apps if I can do it in the browser.

I wouldn’t say Sony made the best phone ever with the Xperia III because they did not, but even if it was one it’s not one of favorite brands on this site, and thus it automatically has that issue.

Same story with Chrome.
Jeez GSMArena, can I finally vote? Fix it.
Anyhow Xperia 1 III doesn’t make much sense to me, Xperia 5 III is 95% same and probably at least €300 cheaper too.
But are both to late? Maybe, the worst part is that Sony announced them ages ago and we still have to wait for so long.
Meanwhile other phones come out and some same priced ones as the Xperias got cheaper too.
In that sense yes they are too late.

First of all, Chrome is terrible, and secondly you should use the GSMArena app from Google Play Store.
I love Sony as it was my first mobile phone. But now it’s not possible.
Sony has exit the Indian market as far as mobile phones are concerned.
It’s not a phone that’s made for everyone, and Sony is NOT forcing anybody to buy these phones, so let’s all settle down and stop being so hard on Sony so much.
If it’s not fit for you, then it’s not for you, so go find something else that suits your needs better and move on with your life. It’s just a goddamn phone ffs!
It’s getting to disturbing levels how GSMA concerns themselves with Sony’s price, availability and all that. It’s a Tech review site d.a.m.n it, stick to reviewing devices and components and leave wether customers should buy or not. It’s not in your place to tell people to buy or not. Just say what it does and not do and allow people decide base on that. Thousands of random customers really depends on Tech review sites, you are basically killing someone’s business with the anti marketing reviews.
I make a product and give it my own price so s.u.c.k it. What’s with this “Is it too late?” caption? It’s hard to say if You guys don’t get paid for reviews or give good reviews when paid. Jeez.
I really like the 3.5mm+microSD card combo, but the price is too high… I love Sony but I can’t afford that.. even the 5 III is too expensive..
Sony phones are largely irrelevant in the market right now

I’ve been burnt twice by recent buggy Sony phones, I had an Xperia 5 and an Xperia 1 ii, the latter was so bug-ridden I had to dump it.
Nothing would make me pay any price for another one, I’m done with Sony.
If I was forced to buy a Sony phone it definitely would not be the 1 III with the extremely gimmicky 4K screen and sub-par battery life… I’d get the Xperia 5 III.
But yeah, these phones offer very bad value for money. And not gonna lie, initially I was quite interested in the 5 III because Sony promised improved cameras, and the “variable telephoto” definitely sounded interesting. They had me fooled for a while. But as usual, when actual reviews were released, Sony failed to deliver on their promises and their latest phones are mediocrity at its finest, once again. I don’t know what it is with Sony, but for the XH90/X900H TV, they promised good things such as VRR and a fix for the 4K120 blur. Flash forward to today, people are still waiting for those. I am so disappointed with Sony. Not just with their phones, but other products such as TVs as well. Thumbs down from me for Sony…
The review given for this phone was definitely paid for, unfortunately smh.
For those who can afford it, it’s a solid phone with some caveats.
But I’d personally go with Xperia 5 III since it’s much easier for my hands and also better battery life w/o the 4k screen
