Sony released their midrange smartphones, the Xperia R1 and R1 Plus. The R1 Plus is more expensive than the R1, offering 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage, twice the storage on the Xperia R1. The Sony Xperia R1 Plus is not bigger in terms of screen, it has the same exterior features with the R1.
According to Sony, The R1 series was specifically designed for the Indian market, so that an average Indian, could own a Xperia device.
Sony Xperia R1 Plus DESIGN
The Sony Xperia R1 Plus surely performs as good as it looks. It looks like other Xperia device but not as slim as the flagships from the Tech giant. It has an uncluttered design and a soft rounded look. Complimented with a loop surface and 2.5D curved glass, hence making the device a beauty to hold and behold.
The Sony Xperia R1 Plus offers an impressive display for a midrange device, its 5.2-inch (13.2 cm) HD Display lets you watch videos and play games in epic detail.
Although there are still annoying bezels and narrow borders on the R1 Plus smartphone. But with its price worth, you can focus on the screen and ignore the bezels.
HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
The Sony Xperia R1 Plus has the best performance and speeds you need on a smartphone, thanks to the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. Clocked at 1.5GHz Octa-core with 3GB of RAM offering faster uploads and downloads, stunning graphics and smooth multitasking. It houses 32GB internal storage upgradeable to 256GB. It runs on 7.1 Android Nougat operating system.
The 13MP rear camera on the Sony Xperia R1 Plus with predictive autofocus is quite disappointing compared to the ones on other flagships from the Tech giant. But for a midrange device, the camera is quite cool. The new Sony feature on the camera lets you capture life as it happens, including moving objects. Its 8MP wide-angle selfie camera lets you capture wider selfies with your family and friends easily.
