they're way way behind the game. they're the worst phone company and that's coming from a die-hard sony fan. (the last Sony i've owned was the Arc).

Ahh I understand... Maybe they won't have to over clock there cpus to try to compensate any more...then perhaps that battery life will improve too...🤔

I use the phone a lot in landscape mode and that's when you understand they are very important. As longs as they are symmetrical it's all good. If you don't like it, don't buy it. It's that simple.
From my point of view they can ditch the selfie "look at me im desperate for attention" camera and just keep the proximity sensor.
xvi, 12 Jan 2017Yet they will still probably have the same huge bezels while everyone else is going for 80+ % SBRThe top bezel I can accept, the bottom one I can't. Sony can just use the discreet slit speakers it used on the Z2 and shave a few millimeters on the bezel. The top bezel is only worth it if the camera sensor of the front and back is large.(like what Sony does, 1/2.3 for the rear, 1/3.06 for the front)
Hahaha Sony that's a joke isn't it. You introduced OLED in the 1st Gen PS Vita almost the same time as the to Samsung Galaxy S2. 3 years down the line you changed the PS Vita from OLED to LCD screen telling your consumers that people will not notice the difference and how it is actually better etc.
And today for TV & mobile you are eating your words by telling us another story? Please kindly take note that all the OLED & LCD rubbish are told by the same 1 person Kaz Hirai. I'm Wishing you all the best.
Sony is the best. No affair, problems with battery, its very good phone for the prise. Camera on auto mod is not good but in manual is better. Sony will be always the brand, other shows and disipear after some time.
Tann Hauser, 12 Jan 2017So, you see no reason why samsung is developing(copying) oled with rgb submatrix now?
Or why ... moreI need to correct myself.
There was a wrgb oled 5inch screen introduced by Sony.in 2015.
Oh Man, there is so much oled info out there that you get lost easily: copyrights, techs, costs, sizes....
Anyways, no matter the tech, all Im personally interested is longivity of that tech which is inferior to lcd.
Nah, Sony, keep it simple, just give us HDR LCD and were fine. :-)
xvi, 12 Jan 2017Yet they will still probably have the same huge bezels while everyone else is going for 80+ % SBRBesides the Mi Mix. Which is is 6.4 inch monster so its easy to make bezels small on such a large phone. The Sony Xperia ZL still hold the crown for smallest bezels after that.

Or why till this date LG didnt use its oled tech in mobile?
Go on, buy a Samsung oled based TV and enjoy its quality....for about 3 to 4 years of its tech endurance.
I feel sony Xperia model c5303 is a good mobile. But somehow is not good as I have been facing power problems. It will not work without charger into plug always. So many customers are facing the same problem. Can we overcome this problem.
I'm a Sony fan and I have to say I really don't care if they still use LCD or move to OLED. As long as it has natural, non-saturated colors, the battery drain is less and there are no burn-ins (I see many ppl saying this but I never witnessed it) they can go ahead.
Since using LCD phone, when I use an OLED display (Samsung phone), after a while my eyes burn a little, but I love the black on it.
Frankly, is Sammy would ditch Touchwiz, I would buy the S7E. Till that happens I'm gonna be in team Sony., enjoying my vanilla stock Android, debloated to the max: 105 system apks :D

Pentile displays last longer
One of the advantages of PenTile displays is that they last longer. In fact today this is one of the major reasons Samsung are using PenTile for high-resolution (over 230 ppi) OLEDs.

If they want to compete in this fast paced smartphone world then they have to be quick with releasing their products at a fair price or else no one will even bother to look in their direction.

Oh sorry I ... moreYou do know Samsung just isnt adding Nougat features, its pulling out features from the Note 7 course its going to take slightly longer and its changing the UI making it lighter and smoother
So its including alot for the 7.1.1 update whereas Sony aint adding nowhere as much features.
