Why Sony just can't have good specs like 4gb Ram, better batterie. I had the z3 the battery was fabulous, i now have the z5 and the autonomy is way below it was
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2016that is why sony xz has qnovo battery charging to stop degradation of battery life over many yearsI think the typical Lithium-ion battery with normal charger charges phone with C-rate under 1, and has around 800-1000 charge cycle. But when the same battery is used with a quick charger, which charges phone at over 1C, can actually reduce the lifespan of battery drastically. Now this is where Qnovo comes in, which charges phone pretty fast and at the same time keeps the charge cycle around 800.
Though I could be completely wrong about this Qnovo adaptive charging and its working. But if this is actually the case, then Qnovo is not actually doubling the charge cycle of a battery, its just keeping it the same like it has always been, but with the added benefit of quick charge.
Even if Qnovo charging does increase the lifespan of battery (which I think is a advantage for those who keep phone longer than normal ), it would be more beneficial to have higher capacity battery for the consumers collectively.
Amazing...people did the right thing by voting against it.
Instead of real flagship Samy and Sony are going down. They cant even blame anything or anyone.
WOW i cant see this one competing against Oneplus 3,Xiaomi mi5 pro,New Nexus...well sorry pixel phones,iphone 7/7s,Lg v20,HTC 10,samsungs galaxy/note.or even older nexuses,.Their software is pretty bad too.This would be a total flop unless that camera is phenomenal and ram is upgraded by atleast 1GB and storage by anither 32GB and great software.Sony is progressing at a snails pace.Sonys Mobile division is going extinct
I think sony has serious management problem. Sony can make a 'come back' and are capable of it but its as if someone desperately doesn't want it to happen. Someone with less vision. IDK but definitely 2or 3 has to go for that division to move forward asap.
Z5 Premium has better resolution screen , design and battery and thinner
A Note 4 user, 04 Sep 2016IPS, FHD, huge bezels, for Â€700??? no way.High quality and rugged phone from SONY love it or leave it.
any time you read comments you'll see bezel bezel bezel, they are a lot of bezeless phone just switch... iphone has been king of bezel since I can remember yet, they sell well....
in the case of sony plz sony dont ever ditch those bezels cuz I enjoy front speakers
about battery, pour all the blame on snapdragon...battery drainer cpu
the best cpu ever made was 801 on the z3
if u try to add more power the phone gets big fans would still complain
as for the new xperia xz is a beautiful piece of machine I hope the camera does wonders as for the ram, they would have gone up 4g
cuz, I dont see the need upgrading from my z5
As always it's personal choice. Me...I love Sony phones but their recent batch are lagging behind the competition in terms of specs. I had z1 compact for two years and have recently upgraded to z3. I chose this as it still stands as the best Xperia especially the screen.They should seriously be contemplating 2k at least for a flagship in 2016,alas,they have stuck with old tech.
I am sure that Sony is not listening to its customers. Same thing with HTC. From past few years we can see the results.
I am sure Sony's flagship phones would do much better if they decide to increase the battery capacity by just 15%, all other shortcomings are pretty minor though. Some people keeps on praising Sony's optimization and stand by time and uses these excuse for low capacity battery, which is not helping the consumer at all.
I prefer to keep my phone for 4 years or more depending on my financial condition; so it becomes absolutely necessary for the phone to have above average battery life (especially when phones now-a-days comes with non-removable battery) so that I don't have to charge it everyday and degrade the battery before it reaches its natural life.
vrvly, 04 Sep 2016Where are days when phone was meant to be smart, not just in sw sense but on hw side too. Sams... moreI totally agree whit you , I have been using Sony for a long time , used Z1,Z2,Z3, now thinking what other Sony to purchase , but all new device coming now don't have that improvement that you will say , I want that one , new phone have the same specs, thinking seriously to change to other brand .
A Note 4 user, 04 Sep 2016IPS, FHD, huge bezels, for Â€700??? no way.Change your username to "A laggy Phone" User. Sony's phones are much better than super laggy and explosive Samsung phones.
According to independent measurements of surf speed in Sweden between 67 different mobile phones by 2015 models so won the Sony Z5. It was crucial to my choice of phone. It will be interesting to follow up coming test of 2016 models.
AnonD-472910, 04 Sep 2016im not so sure why so many people keep saying the g3 was the first to 1440p when in fact it wa... moreIt's because LG is much more known in the world than vivo which I'm sure almost everyone never knew about.
Anyways, you get the point of my comment
I never went into a Samsung polls or others and voted against, pathetic people.
