Gizchina News of the week


  • Beardednomad: Sony will always be on these lists (until they eventually go out of business) until they realize that most consumers aren’t going to pay those prices for a phone from Sony. They consistently price themselves out of competition. If they focused on making a really good $6-700 phone they would actually have a chance at rebuilding their brand.
  • Thomas Seiffert: Sony 5 iii, Sony 10 iii both rate some good press
  • Alex: These phones are not underrated, rather deliberately skipped for some glaring reason(s). For example, year after year Sony makes flagship phones where the screen doesn’t get bright enough in direct sunlight. Additionally, the camera overheats and needs to shut down if you use it a lot
  • duckofdeath: The most underrated phone of the year was the one that was the class leader of ’21. I have never seen so much misinformation spam about a phone as what’s been out there about the S21 Ultra.
  • Street Tyga: Sony Xperia 1 iii deserves not to be among the most underrated. It has all the features a high-end smartphone could have, then come to the camera, it’s amazing.
  • Telespectador: If these are considered underrated by people, reviewers here should have given a higher score to all of them.
