Only the name will change..but the power on its mobile will still remain..as sony.like no other.
Roar, 04 Mar 2016Before you shoot off your mouth, please read that this is for the Dual SIM version not single ... moreSeriously!... Shooting off my mouth!... I've checked the white paper on Sony developer and the single sim variant has still got 13gb of firmware..did you check on Sony's own checklists... Don't be a hater... And get your facts right of course.. Otherwise you just end up looking silly!
My comment was regarding the article... Not suppositions of opinion... I have no allegiance to any Manufacturer... I currently run a Z Ultra.. And like other supporters of this huge device was hoping for a z6 ultra.. I'm looking at anything which is interesting or new (Z5 premium,s7,g5 I've even looked at the Huawei P8 Max!).. I don't want bloatware on my new device.. I don't appreciate being accused of lack of reading skill..or that I'm some kind of fool because an SD card slot somehow makes up for the large firmware package.. I've never had an android device where I've been happy with the OEM software.. It's horses for courses...
No Fan Boy...!, 04 Mar 2016Wish it had 4GB RAM...even cheaper Chinese phones have 4GB RAM...!But with higher resolution screen and more heavily ui. Higher resolution of screen means more ram is going to be used for evry single app by gpu and its not only ram that is being consumed but power to shortening battery life.
SO DONT POST USELESS COMMENTS IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW THE DAMN HARDWARE IS ACTUALLY FUNCTIONING.
HIGHER NUMBERS DOSENT MEAN BETTER PERFORMANCE.
Although I would like 4gigs of ram to. 3gb will preform better on FHD then 4gigs on QHD so your comparison is pretty much stupid.

Read the damn article and see for yourself that phone has 48GB FREE and if you have 58GB STORAGE IN TOTAL so how can you put inside that 15gb and to have still free 48gb left? Pls tell me how?

First did you even read my comment in the first place? And you made such fuss about sdcard that I didn't even mention. And abot devices you had with 50gb free are you so dumb that you didnt saw +-1gb after my 48gb statement firmware is approximately 10gb it could be a bit more or bit less but not a serious diference. And you are one who has awful knowledge and needs to continue to play with his lego since if you didnt know there isnt single device in thech wrold that has exactly as much storge as its stated on product. 64gb are real 58gb, 32 is real 29gb , 16gb is 14gb and so on...

So should be 7 gb of app software you can remove if wanted

I had one m7 64GB and over 50GB was free,also I had galaxy s5 and it has more than 50GB free too but sony...I don't know why....
at the end I have to tell you that recording camera or high quality games have to be in internal memory not external and if I want to buy sd card why go for 64GB phones???? why you buy 64GB?????? if you are right all of we can buy 16 or 32GB and insert SD card and sony why makes 64GB????? it's better some body like you seat where and just read and listen.please go and play with your "LEGO" leave experts alone.

Samsung did it as they said it would confuse customers and that the difference in speed between their internal UFS storage and current sd cards means there would likely be a performance hit.
Not sure what LG's excuse is, probably the same 'confusion' line Samsung are giving, they can't really claim performance issues as they use standard eMMc based internal memory that whilst faster than current SD speeds, is not that much faster.
Sony may take the same route, I hope they don't, and am disappointed by Samsungs decision here, I believe people would at least like the choice.
