Sony’s Xperia 1 VI also boasts a new display that’s 1.5 times brighter than the previous model. A new Sunlight Vision feature also makes it easier to view your screen when outdoors. With a 5,000 mAh battery, the 1 VI is capable of going two days between charges and streaming video for more than 36 hours.

The new FPS Optimizer optimizes CPU usage and farm rate for the current game. In addition, the device offers three tracking speeds and two levels of tap accuracy for a more satisfying mobile game experience. This device’s camera app has a more user-friendly interface and a new Pro video mode. Furthermore, it supports Wi-Fi 7, offering you high-speed data exchange.

Sony’s newest mid-range smartphone, the Xperia 10 VI, also features a large battery. The device has a Video Creator app for easy filming and editing. You can choose files and adjust playback time to create short videos in under a minute. A dual rear camera with three focal lengths offers up to 2x zoom.

The 10 VI’s Optical Image Stabilization lets you capture clear and steady videos and photos. You can take photos using preset colour options thanks to the colour effects function, meaning there’s no need to edit them before uploading them to your social media.
