If a top-tier camera is important to you, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has an excellent camera that provides a best overall experience, particularly with photos, boasting versatility and low-light performance superior to the Sony Xperia 1 V. You'll also get more battery life with the Samsung. However, it is more expensive than the Sony, which offers a very good photo experience but doesn't match Samsung's low-light or versatility. The Sony is less expensive and includes a headphone jack, which the Samsung lacks. Both have 5G, similar storage, and glass bodies, but the Samsung has a slightly larger screen and a stylus, adding to its functionality. If cost is less of a concern and you prefer a stylus and superior camera, you may lean towards the Samsung, while if you're looking for savings and value a headphone jack, the Sony might be more suitable.

Android Police

Will Sattelberg | June 2023
"The Sony Xperia 1 V is unlike anything else you'll find on the market today. With an ultra-tall 4K OLED panel, a textured glass back for added grip, and all of the manual controls Alpha fans could ask for, this is nothing like modern Android flagships — something that might win over some old-school smartphone fans."
