Design and Display

The Sony Xperia R1 Plus shows a clean, decent design. This could have been one to cherish years ago. But with a plethora of attractive smartphones on the market these days, this one may struggle a bit to grab attention with its sharp corners and somewhat thick bezels at top and bottom.

Sony Xperia R1 Plus uses a 5.2-inch display just like its more affordable sibling, Xperia R1. This has a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. Images should look sharp here, but it appears Sony over-hyped this somewhat.

Camera and Storage

Targets of the Sony Xperia R1 Plus appear to include people who take lots of images with their phones. It packs an ‘amazing’ 13 megapixel rear camera for preserving precious memories. This has 12 modes for better suiting the shots you take to your taste. The Exmor Sony sensor gets the backing of autofocus and LED flash for quality shots.

The Sony Xperia R1 Plus should impress when it comes to selfies, at least on paper. It offers you an 8MP sensor on the front. This has wide-angle lens for capturing more friends in your shots.

Hardware and Software

Users can expect powerful performance from the Sony Xperia R1 Plus, albeit not the best at this price. It is powered by an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. Sony says you should expect no lag from this chip, but expect stunning graphics.

RAM of 3 GB looks respectable. You get 32 GB of inbuilt storage for keeping your photos, other files and apps. The Sony Xperia R1 Plus boots Android Nougat operating system from factory. There is promise of upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo down the line.

Other Features

The Sony Xperia R1 Plus features 4G LTE (Cat. 4) support and a reversible USB Type-C port. The affordable Android phone offers other regular connectivity options, such as Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi, as well. Some users may find the battery capacity of 2,620 mAh somewhat on the low side of things, though.
