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.

DISPLAY

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.
