Increasing resolution above 1080p on a mobile screen is a waste of battery in my opinion. Thats why Z5 looks more appealing to me.

The type of people who moan about not being able to read their txt messages in 4k
And to stream sub 720p youtube videos, are the same ones who have the brightness full on, and leave Bluetooth turned on all the time because they "like the flashy blue"
Good move on Sonys behalf, but it wouldn't have hurt to be more honest in declaring all the battery optimizing features Pre-sales
What i would have liked is a click on system for attaching lenses to the camera including adapters for existing lenses, like the NX range.
The girl in the picture, is really scary... Stare at her face for 2 seconds and you'll know what I'm saying. No offence, but the photographer could've done a better job.
Coming to the topic, I don't mind if the 4K display is just for media... The menu and all is ok in FullHD, really what's wrong with it?
I'm not sure if Apps and games are compatible with 4K as of now....

At least we could consider adding this phone with such a feature to the list of future-proof phones. We may not need it now but it could prove useful and could stay relevant later on
When you forget your Google acount on your Xperia when you activate my Xperia section does it really mean that you have lost your.... Dollar phone that simple?and that is nothing more than a trash anymore?
I have activated my Xperia on my new Xperia z4, after a few days I decided to reset my phone,when I did it I came to realize that it needs my Google acount to log in,and I'm totally lost about the Gmail I have set on it,now you can't use my phone can any of you guys help me here?

There was the idea that users wouldn't be able to discern any increases in resolution once it got to a certain level, but that's wrong. People can tell." Kurozumi adds, "We now need the right size for phones, the right processors capable of running 4K. We're looking for [these] solutions." Smartphones would also need enough battery power to run on such a high resolution for a respectable amount of time." Smith, M. (2014) Source: www.engadget.com/2014/03/21/sony-xperia-z2-4k/
ktwo, 22 Sep 2015so you're saying that in case of finding that 4K is too much for the connection or bandwidth o... moreIf your country only provide a lower internet speed or a dummy broadband for you then this is a problem to you, but this isn't the phone problem, because the Vellomo test faster than Samsung and Iphone flag ship and the Interface very lightweight compare to touchwiz. Moreover if your internet speed can't reach there 4K require, the upscaling technology could be the last straw for all low bandwidth country.
Don't forget your 4K record could watching by using the 4K display and take a 8mp pixel photo in the 4K record, but Samsung and Iphone can't do so, that's why they have to trolling here to defame Z5 premium.
Cheese, 19 Sep 2015You can choose 2K quality or 1080 quality to solve the connection low speed problem, the inter... moreso you're saying that in case of finding that 4K is too much for the connection or bandwidth or even memory i can choose 1080 which again is already more than enough for that small screen and low memory .... so again that proves that 4K is marketing gimmick and is BS let alone that it's conditional ... Android phones are all about numbers but nothing IRL ... the problem is that people don't read much into thier stuff High numbers doesn't mean High quality

I'm not saying that 4K screens and content on a mass scale don't have a future, but not 2015. Perhaps next year.
As you pointed out, when you have to tweak things unnecessarily within a product to accommodate the hardware, it means something's gone amiss a little and the focus is more on technology and the competition, than the consumer. Samsung learned the hard way, not sure if Sony will...

So, what are we paying for at the end of the day? 1080p most of the time, plus photos and videos (actually, only the ones we took since there are no other sources!) in an insanely high DPI our eyes can't even see?
haha oh man, 21 Sep 2015Anyone who is throwing a fit about this is an idiot.
It's the same as buying a powerful vid... moreFail!
A GPU may be in low-power state but the resolution it outputs is usually still the same as the native resolution of your screen. Try to lower the resolution in a screen of fixed-matrix (like this phone or any other TFT) and behold the results!
mag, 21 Sep 2015No your are wrong, sorry. It's a factor of 4, because 4K has 4 times the amount fo pixels than 1080Learn what a zoom factor is and then come back shocked by the fact that when you double something the SURFACE quadruples. Yet the factor is still 2x.
