The Xperia 1 V finally gets the price cut it always needed

Amazon has slashed 25% off the very high RRP of the Xperia 1 V, bringing it down to £979. That remains a high price, however it’s a massive discount from the £1299 price this phone launched for.

We were big fans of the Xperia 1 V when we reviewed it earlier in the year. Our expert rounded off the 4.5 star review by saying “The Sony Xperia 1 V is a superb phone that barely puts a foot wrong. It’s lightning-fast with a great screen, enviable battery life and a superb camera array. You might quibble with the design, which remains an acquired taste, but it does everything exceptionally.”

The swiss army knife of smartphones

Pros

  • Speedy performance with top-notch internals
  • Brilliant sound with a dedicated headphone jack
  • Superb stamina with multi-day battery life

Cons

  • It’s as expensive as non-folding phones get
  • Bloatware is insulting in a phone this expensive
  • Textured glass back feels a lot like plastic

Specs include a 4K 6.5-inch display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, 52MP rear camera, 5000mAh battery and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It certainly is one of the most specced-out phones you can buy and this is a very welcome price cut.
