Sony now sells the Xperia 1 with Amazon apps for $850

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. However, if you don't mind a few extra pre-installed apps, an Alexa version of the Xperia 1 is now available at a lower price.

The Xperia 1 is Sony's best phone yet, but it struggles to justify the exorbitant price

Sony used to be one of the most successful mobile companies in the world, but it never really got into a groove as modern smartphones took over the market. Sony has been on a slow downward slide for the last decade thanks to a string of mediocre, overpriced devices and failing relations with carriers. 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.

The Sony Xperia 1 ships on July 12 in the US, still costs way too much money

The Xperia 1 is Sony's new flagship smartphone. It was first shown off at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, and comes equipped with everything you'd expect from a high-end smartphone in 2019, all in an extremely-tall 2:1 design. Pre-orders already begun in the United States, and now it has a shipping date, and people in Europe can buy the phone too.

Sony Xperia 2 leaks: It’s basically a smaller Xperia 1

Sony tried to marry its distinct industrial design with today's tall 2:1 screen ratios and thus birthed the Xperia 1 at MWC this year. While that phone was a refreshing new approach for the company, it was bound to fail with its $1,000 price tag attached. However, Sony is always iterating very quickly, pushing hardware updates almost every six months. And thus, new phones are bound to show up shortly after the current device's release. Now, some images and specs have leaked that give us a glimpse at the upcoming Sony Xperia 2.

Sony goes 21:9 for 2019 with ultra-widescreen Xperia 10, 10 Plus, and flagship 4K OLED Xperia 1

So much of the new stuff we're seeing in smartphones is focused on screens right now: new notch styles, embedded fingerprint scanners, and even screens that fold. Two years ago, one of the furthest-reaching changes in screen design got off the ground at MWC with the introduction of the LG G6 and its 18:9 aspect ratio panel, noticeable taller (or wider, depending on how you're holding it) than the 16:9 displays that had dominated phones to date. Now Sony's ready to introduce the next chapter in this saga, with the launch of three Xperia phones featuring 21:9 screens.

Sony's next flagship phone could be the 'Xperia 1'

Sony's device naming scheme for Xperia phones has been confusing for years. The 'XZ' line of phones serve as the company's mainstream devices (akin to a Galaxy S device), with the 'XZ Premium' phones being ultra-flagships (like a Galaxy Note or LG V phone). On top of that, there are budget devices under several monikers, like the L2, R1, and XA2.
