Let's hope the cameras aren't butt
Don't the companies send out phones well before MWC so the youtubers can have videos ready the second the announcements are made (embargo is down)?
Also what i'm wondering as well, I waited for the premium versions of the the Z5 and XZ but I really really like the Purple version of the X1, not sure I will be able to resist upgrading when its available.
Dude, the xz3 is like 6 months and it's falling apart already? Did you mean the z3?
I used to be a compact phone lover like you, then I started using a 6.2inch phone and never looked back.
I won't give up. I hope they'll keep the Compact line, at least as an mid-high line.
Opposite here. Love smaller phones, but gave in and bought a larger one because my old one was getting a bit, well... old. I like it, but still wish it was smaller. The best phone I've ever had as far as form factor went was the original Moto X.
yeah both Note 10 and New iPhone will be available at that time
Most phones now a days are. Better to have more usable screen with it
Yup, that's mevivftp aren't you an active member at Esato? Thank God ADIDA does not have an account here lol
I can't decide whether to go with Black or Purple! Both look amazing IMO. If people think 6 GB of RAM is not enough, it is plenty! My XZ3 works just fine with 6GB of RAM. Sony usually bump up the RAM amount on their Asian variant. For Example the XZ3 was sold in the US and Europe with 4GB of RAM but in Asia they offered it with 6GB RAM and dual SIM
They do that for non mwc announcements. The smaller the company, the more likely they send the phone to youtubers
Sony's been pretty good historically when it comes to battery life so it should be fine. Guessing it'll be a while before we can get any reviews since the phone isn't out until Spring.
Helllllll naw.Jesus christ why do they do shit like this? Lower the resolution, make it an IPS panel, and make it a better product. It's like, almost the perfect handset. So, so close! Seriously, this thing is gorgeous. THIS is what phones should strive to be.
Like, I know it's not just Sony but with the subpixel layout and arrangements (pentile and such) on some OLEDs, you have to go a lot higher in resolution to make it look as clear as an IPS panel on the same size. More pixels also means more stuff to render, which means taxing the processor and battery. There is a point where the numbers really don't matter with pixel density on a phone handset. I mean, some of these things have like 500+ PPI, it's getting ridiculous. Waste of performance battery and money.
A lot of the drain, however, must be fairly out of their control. S855, a large screen pushing a lot of pixels, etc... I can't imagine it coming at all close to the S10, let alone the S10+ in terms of battery life, even though those phones are (in terms of screen size), slightly smaller.
From the esato forums one of the insider people says the screen comes from Samsung.21:9 4K HDR ? Who makes this type of OLED screen? O_o
Samsung? LG? Or Japanese Display (which Sony is part of)
Edit- and for those who complain about the resolution being too high and the effect on Battery... well with my S8+ I have it on HD+ on default....and when I want to watch something on Youtube that is a higher resolution, I turn on the Entertainment Mode...which Boosts the Resolution and other pictures effects. It doesn't take long... just click... then watch the Video..and when I'm done watching stuff... just click back to default video settings.
I get about 12-15hrs continuous use from my mate 20 pro, which has 4200mah battery and the Huawei battery saving AI is quite active.
Afraid we don't have that info yet.
IIRC people were able to mod previous 4K Xperias to run at 4K all the time and it had a minimal impact on performance and battery life. My XZ Premium is a 4K phone and battery life is just hunky doryI get about 12-15hrs continuous use from my mate 20 pro, which has 4200mah battery and the Huawei battery saving AI is quite active.
Maybe sony's stamina tech will make it keep up with bigger batteries but I doubt it, also the it will probably adjust the resolution to save battery life, I would imagine 4k will eat up battery quickly.
I haven't bought a Sony phone since my Z3 which I loved. It was also a pain in the ass that only T Mobile carried and then after that it seemed like Sony didn't bother or most carriers didn't give a shit. Was wondering if that had changed at all in the years since. This phone does look sleek as hell.
What, you can't disable adaptive resolution in the settings?
