Sony Xperia 1 V: How to Force Enable 4K

In this guide, we’ll explain how to forcibly enable the 4K setting on your Sony Xperia 1 V. Sony devices often go unnoticed, likely due to their limited availability and less aggressive marketing.

However, their “1” lineup, particularly the latest fifth version, is filled with feature-packed and robust devices that uphold the prestige established by their predecessors.

The Sony Xperia 1 V possesses an excellent 4K display resolution, albeit usually limited to 2K at most. To be fair, 2K resolution is perfectly adequate for most users. Only while watching videos does the device boost itself automatically to 4K. The prevailing wisdom suggests there’s no conspicuous distinction between 2K and 4K images, and thus, it’s prudent to keep the setting on 2K to conserve battery life.
