Get Sony's extra-tall Xperia 1 with a crispy 4K HDR display for $748, its lowest price ever

Sony phones may not be as popular as ones from Samsung, but the company still has an enthusiastic and loyal group of fans out there. The Sony Xperia 1 isn't just for Sony fans, though — if you see the utility in a tall and slim phone with a 4K HDR display that offers a more immersive gaming and multimedia experience, then the Xperia 1 might be a good fit for you. When it used to sell for $1,000, it didn't feel right. But at $748 on Amazon — its lowest price ever — the Xperia 1 becomes an option worth considering.

Save $100 on a Sony Xperia 1, even more with active noise canceling WH1000XM3 headphones

If you like your phones big, tall, and new, the Sony Xperia 1 might be your go-to. But man, that list price of $1,000 has never felt right, especially when we reviewed it and all the little annoyances and stumbling blocks brought down the sum of its parts.

Sony released its super-tall Xperia 1 last month, but the $950 price tag is a lot to ask, especially when many of the phone's standout features (like the 4K screen) don't add much to the experience.

There have been some bright spots along the way, though, and Sony has been focusing on the hardware more in recent years. Last year's Xperia XZ3 was an encouraging improvement, and the new Xperia 1 is better still. However, it's just not good enough.
