The BEST of the BEST in a premium design. SONY Please take my MONIES!!!
Smart way of handling the design in terms of limitation and reality needs (yes i know you want a 4K display).
Bad way to marketing it (same old Sony who does their poor PR).
This actually solve my worry over the 810 isn't designed for 4k screen and having a 4k screen is overkill when you didn't have a 4k content in the first place, I wish we could somehow have the option to change the resolution at wish though :).
words Dynamic, adaptive or when needed are all wrong..
Its only QHD screen displaying FHD content bcz sony doesnt tweak the UI to optimize the screen. About photo and videos it can run at 4K bcz of GPU capability.
The true is sony didnt do anything for its 4K display..
Personally, I think it is fair enough. Good job Sony. Please push forward though. I am one of your supporter.
This company always lies just as they lied about their water proof phones. Their phone camera is proven a piece of crap.
Irelia, 19 Sep 2015Downscaling? Holy shit I knew this would happen, totally knew it. "only when needed"... moreIt comes with great sense and logic now that Sony's claims of the Z5 Premium having a 2-day battery life may be proven with this adaptive/active/dynamic resolution. Well, now that 4K on smartphones are about to hit mainstream with the introduction of the Z5 pioneering and spearheading the tech, it should be high time for manufacturers to be pushing the battery tech to mature
yuukun, 20 Sep 2015Ya tis is why i buy android 1080P phone instead Apple ... Apple Fan boy never understand this ... moreYeeaaah, gonna need some proof there. iPhone 6 Plus apps have assets made for 2208x1242 resolutiom and then downscaled to 1080p.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 20154K is for 4K content. Basically, it just means there is no upscaling. Upscaling is half market... moreThe UI is not shown at 4K (and should have been). The only way you have to display a non-4K UI in a 4K screen is to upscale it.
You can dance around it all you want. Spin and spin all day. You can't escape FACTS.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2015And who told you 4k is only for streaming? Can't wait till your favorite brand copy this genui... more4K is for 4K content. Basically, it just means there is no upscaling. Upscaling is half marketing anyways.
harlekkin, 20 Sep 2015And how many people have either the bandwidth or wireless technology to even stream 4K? 4K ... moreAnd who told you 4k is only for streaming? Can't wait till your favorite brand copy this genuine Sony concept.
frankly, i find it EXTREMELY impressive that they're having a variable resolution option for their phone. wow! i wish i had that on my el sammo!! with the option to manually change resolution as i please (as opposed to sony's implementation).
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2015There is a bunch of 4k videos can be on Youtube. It is not necessary to download them. Watch i... moreAnd how many people have either the bandwidth or wireless technology to even stream 4K?
4K will be great in 2 years, but it's just too soon for this technology to go mainstream when even developed countries don't have the infrastructure to properly stream the content.
i always admired sony for not entering the QHD gimmick,but then they introduced the 4k display and i was shocked!!!!OMG 4k WTF!!!
i'm glad they are still sane and wise,
you need 4k videos? VR? you got it , but you don't have to waste the battery on 4k always.
the phone remains 1080 ,very smart move.
So just to clarify, even when not displaying at Ultra HD levels this phone still has twice the resolution of the 'retina' display of the iPhone6? Lolz
The best and smartest phone out there sure brings a lot of haters to the table...Most of those need antacids to digest more easily...
I dont see any problem here. This is logical what sony did. why would you use 4k if you watch fullhd. that would be stupid. the phone use 4k when need to use to save power. this phone is really beast and very beautiful but i think you critisize sony every time. after all 4k is too sharp for our eyes. all i can say is that SONY makes excellent phones and I wish them good luck. I own xperia Z2 and it is perfect phone for me and my needs. I am very satisfied with battery while my friends owning iphone6 and galaxy s6 charge them every day.
