Anonymous, 03 Sep 2015So the sony Fanboys who bashed Samsung and LG for using QHD, all of a sudden are Pixel lovers ... moreYup. Sony fans have generally been some of the closet to apple fans ion these forums for years.
It's annoying how Qualcomm doesn't get punished for S810, everyone's still using it, while people don't want to buy it - so the phone manufacturers suffer the most. I'd be happy if manufacturers ordered from Samsung or Mediatek to avoid 810, it's beyond me why even Sony used it now, it's annoying, because it seems unfair.
No OIS and 4K? Really? Better go OLED and stay 1080P/2K for much improved image quality.
It's also funny to read comments, how Sony fans were like "Who in the world needs 2K on a phone?", and now they get 4K from Sony on a flagship and they're like "this is innovation!". ;)
Plus if anyone who is into music and lives with it, decides to buy an mp3 player to enjoy from music and feels like life is realy wonderful with quality music sound,he will definitely choose to buy either an ipod or SONY, what if SONY decides to throw his sound technology in the battle.GOD
AnonD-65736, 02 Sep 2015Very funny comment! Seriously, 4k is just... OverkillOne word ....... Innovation

jrharbort, 03 Sep 2015Many of the apps/games are still limited to 1080p max when being rendered, and don't display a... moreYeah I know, I make mobile games for a living, the problem is that if you don't render at native resolution it introduces unwanted artifacts that degrade the quality (if only ever so slightly) and can make issues like aliasing more apparent. It also uses up a fair bit more memory having the screen buffer (especially if it's 4k) plus another 1080p off-screen buffer which makes memory constraints tighter and increases the risk of running out of memory. There's also a small performance hit having to render the off-screen buffer to the full screen buffer so even with a 1080p off-screen buffer it wont run as well as if it were using a native 1080p screen frame buffer. Then there's the extra power required to run the 4k screen which drains the battery faster so you can't play for as long either.
For gaming anything over 1080p is just plain bad. And for anything else it's not even a noticeable improvement over 1080p unless you are specifically looking for a difference. If you are using the phone normally you aren't going to be able to tell if the screen is 1080p or a higher res, so it's a waste unless you use your phone to count pixels on the screen.
Really honestly compliments/congrats to Sony! Really excellent job! Absolutely well done and definitely keep it up! !!! Great 3 devices (Z5/Z5 P/Z5 C) and obviously, mostly, for the pioneer 4K Display! & the 200GB SD Card! Upgraded Camera! (& Dual Sim option, better Sound, & fingerprint too! ) really congrats to Sony! !!!!

- Some Reviewers DIDN'T NOTICE ANY OVERHEATING issues during an hour long hands-... moreThe placement of the fingerprint reader is more ergonimic, as long as all you do is unlock the device.
As soon as you want to interact with the display, you end up with the same ergonimic as one that has the sensor on the front. So it doesnt make much of a difference.
The one, on the back, that also works kinda like a touchpad so you would be able to control your device from the back, is probably the over all ergonomics winner.
The placement is as good as on the side, as it's also where your finger ends up.
But it has additional functionality.
If you are going to use it for NFC payments, the one on the front is best for those situations.
The one on the back would mean that you would block the NFC antenna, unless it's put on the front instead, but then you wont see the displayed sum for the transaction, while you confirm it.
The one on the side doesn't necesarrily mean that you block the antenna, but to get the NFC antenna close enough to the reader you might have to angle your wrist in a unconfortable manner.
So in actual reality, it might turn out, that although the placement on the side is more ergonomic than on the front, it's still the least good place to put it.
Like I have said before,there were many mobile making companies which died in the battle,Nokia,Siemens,Erricson,Sewon,and many others,you may see some Huawei or htc companies selling mobiles more than SONY these Days but let's wait and see that,ELECTRICS is something which belongs to his mother SONY

4K Resolution is the best for Virtual Reality
AnonD-119255, 03 Sep 2015Amazing clarity with 4k regulations. Better quality than my note 4,I am wating for z5 premium. And you've seen it?? Suuurrreeee.... Your nose would need to be touching it to see any difference in sharpness (not to be confused with colour accuracy, brightness etc).
