Of the Xperia 1 V’s many welcome features, it’s the high-quality camera system that truly stands out. Improvements for this fifth-generation flagship ’phone can be found in the sensor technology, which incorporates the new ‘Exmor T for mobile’, a stacked device with separate transistor and photodiode layers. The 1.7x increase in sensor size delivers dramatically reduced noise levels and a wider dynamic range, taking night shots to another level. Sony’s 24mm main camera is complemented by an ultrawide camera with 16mm focus length, and an optical zoom camera with an expansive 85-125mm range. The Xperia 1 V’s superb picture prowess and flexibility is backed up by its wide image 21:9 ratio, 4K resolution HDR OLED screen, latest Snapdragon processor and powerful 5000mAh battery.
