wer, 19 Sep 2015 Sony made trick with that 4k to get more sales but they will fail once again :Das they always did .... every year they fail more than the previous ... check that news where their waterproofing wasn't as they advertised .... Sony is full of sh*t
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2015You are the joke here. It's a good and reasonable innovation. Sony made trick with that 4k to get more sales but they will fail once again :D
"After the messy overheating fiasco, involving its last line of flagships, the Japanese tech giant was eager to move on and direct fan attention away from the incident."
Judging from the GSMArena comments, I would say they failed at that.
All thanks to SD810's poor reputation.
But I do like the idea behind changing resolutions when needed (like on desktop machines), hope they will also support 3rd party apps/games.
Phecabooth, 19 Sep 2015I wanna see that display.... its resonable to use the native 4k good idea. However the adren... moreThe snapdragon 810 is the only soc out there that supports 4K displays. Not.even Samsungs strongest exynos could run such a display. So there was not one other possible than the sd810 that Sony could have used..
I wanna see that display....
its resonable to use the native 4k good idea.
However the adreno 430 not designed for 4k resolution push out? If can record 4k videos since 2-3 years now, the playback is nothing. 4k gaming maybe pushes to top performance what makes more heat. 5.5" 4k + SD810... I would worry much more about the cooling solution that two heat pipe works accurate or not.
good move i guess... i mean who needs 4k icons and music player etc and games... heck even playstation and xbox games render on even lower resolutions.
4k video playback is good :)
HAHAHAHHA that's the nice joke out there !
first 4k display but only when you needed that turning on? HHAHAHAHA
you made my day sony
AnonD-112143, 19 Sep 2015No he doesn't, it's you who needs education. a non Full 4K is not a 4k phone .... whats the us... moreIts a smart feature. No gimmick. Why you want 4k all the time and drain your phone battery? If they make new flagship with 4k available 24/7 next year people will say "I think Xperia Z5 Premium is better than this new phone".
Gobarboss, 19 Sep 2015Sony looks damn convincing everytime. Had a horrible experience with z2. Worst camera ever. Al... moreEven the build quality sucks bro .... never seen a Z2 without a broken glass back ! XD Sony fails so hard that even HTC looks brilliant compared to them.
apple is the best in software updates (maybe for about 5 years). BUT with this feature by SONY (4K display), of course it will be useful for more than 10 years!!!
dont to worried for sony fan..we just wait for asus padfone s 2 come with 4k resolution and use snapdragon 820 chipset..most advance to sony z5 next year in Q1 2016..cheers to Asus!!
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2015You are sad. Go see an eye doctor.No he doesn't, it's you who needs education. a non Full 4K is not a 4k phone .... whats the use of limiting 4K to some stuff and probably from whats going on it's gonna be limited to Sony native apps .... so why bother introduction half 4k thing to world... such a fake gimmick
Cyber shot under dog, 19 Sep 2015Havent you read the news, the z5 is installed with heating pipes, not one but two. So its poss... moreyup heard about them but still cooling things doesn't mean that the thing itself going to be powerful, i mean 810 sucks even without that heat problem.
also 4k is useless on small scale screens .....
just like high megapixels on low aperture cams... big picture no details ...
anyway Sony phones always sucked build or performance wise .... even on waterproofing Samsung killed their phones on S5 proofing and check this one out on sony too
Funny that in none of those use cases 4k is "needed" as the human eye cannot see the difference.
The only use case where 4k is truly needed is VR, and IIRC Sony does not officially support VR and thus no 4k there. It's like living in the opposite world, where a useful feature is used in a useless way...
