First and foremost, it is important to have specs that can comfortably run today's demanding games.
The Xperia 1 IV is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform, which supports 5G millimeter wave.
It also has 12GB of RAM, 256GB of ROM, and a high-capacity 5,000mAh battery.
Many people may not be concerned about the specs because it is an "Xperia," but I think it is safe to say that there is no mobile game that currently does not run properly with these specs.

The display ratio is the familiar "Xperia" 21:9 widescreen.
With a 120Hz drive display that clearly displays even fast movements , 240Hz afterimage reduction technology, and high-speed touch detection at up to 240Hz, the Xperia 1 IV will give you an edge over your opponents.

HS Power Control

Even with a large 5,000mAh battery, the battery will run out after a long day of play.
This means playing games while recharging the battery, but this can cause it to heat up and become very hot.
The Xperia 1 IV is equipped with HS Power Control, a heat suppression function that makes it comfortable to play games while charging.
Only the power used during gaming is supplied to the device without the battery, thus reducing the heat generated by charging.

More advanced game enhancer

Xperia" is equipped with the " Game Enhancer " application, which is packed with exclusive features that allow users to play games even more comfortably. The aforementioned "HS Power Control" is one of these features.
Of course, since the Xperia 1 IV is the latest model, each of these features has evolved as well!
Here are some of the features available on the Xperia 1 IV that will allow you to enjoy your games even more!

Focus Settings

The "Focus Setting " allows you to make detailed settings for notifications and operations while playing.
Among them, the Competition Set allows you to disable all unnecessary functions when playing games, such as turning off notifications and hiding the navigation bar, so that you can concentrate more on your game.
Of course, you can also choose to disable only the features you want, such as hiding incoming notifications or disabling the camera button, and set your own preferences.
This is a very useful feature, not only for playing, but also because it can be very difficult to see notifications during distribution.

Picture Quality Settings

Image Quality Settings

You can customize the picture quality by combining the three picture quality adjustment functions: "Picture Quality Mode," "White Balance," and "L-gamma Razor. The ease with which you can see the enemy gives you an advantage.
The preview allows you to check the actual visibility while making settings, and up to four settings can be preset for each game title, so you can instantly select the most appropriate setting for each stage and situation.
The "Picture Quality Mode" allows you to choose between " Standard" and "Game" as the standard picture quality.
Standard" displays vivid colors that extend the gamut of the game, while "Game" displays the true colors of the game.
Next, "White Balance" adjusts the white tones of the screen. A low value gives a reddish tint, while a high value gives a bluish tint.

L-gamma Razor

Finally, there is the "L-Gamma Razor.
This is a gamma tuning function designed for games that intentionally brightens dark scenes to increase the visibility of hidden enemies and obstacles.
The settings for each of these functions will vary depending on the scene and the person viewing the scene.
Let's start by trying different settings to find the one that works best for you!

Audio Equalizer
