Anonymous, 23 Dec 2016Even I love plastic Sony since they are more durable, unexplode and fits my daily needs. for people who can't do research on their own the plastic is there to give xz better signal connectivity. That's why in web browsing it's the fastest.
AnonD-391800, 31 Dec 2016Been playing with X Compact, it used 1.7 gb of ram with some 20 apps opened in background, 1.2... moreyeah its not always about hardware. It's about optimization. Software reigns supreme in the modern world and I think sony realizes this whic is why they've made great strives.
AnonD-391800, 31 Dec 2016Been playing with X Compact, it used 1.7 gb of ram with some 20 apps opened in background, 1.2... moreExactly, you're smart. My main arguing point is that manufacturers should focus on efficiency. Android has been walking down the wrong path by not bringing enough software optimizations and instead getting benefits from improved hardware. Just take a look at the iPhone 7, that thing has only 2GB of RAM but it kills every Android phone that has a 2x spec equivalent in speed, multitasking, and efficiency. Every Android phone manufacturer in 2017 should focus heavily on making sure they can achieve speed faster than the iPhone 7, multitasking like the iPhone 7, and make their phones more efficient in every way possible.
AnonD-615393, 30 Dec 2016Yeah, but at this rate, the size of apps aren't gonna double so quickly.Been playing with X Compact, it used 1.7 gb of ram with some 20 apps opened in background, 1.2 gb was free. Furthermore it has ability to save 10 most used apps of users choice always in cache.
Having 3gb of RAM is really sufficient for this SD650 as is for SD820 requirements, even in future.
As for multitasking, 4gb acts slightly better, but not that much, also maintaining that much more apps in cache will make phone overheat and drain more operating maH from battery.
More capable future SoCs will require more RAM tho as apps and games for those will demand more RAM.
So for best user experience, 3gb is more than enough, even considering multitasking, as overheat and battery drain are to consider when wishing for more cache/multitask user freedom.
AnonD-463876, 26 Dec 2016When it comes to unrefined Android and the ever increasing size of apps more is always better. Yeah, but at this rate, the size of apps aren't gonna double so quickly.
AnonD-391800, 28 Dec 2016A galaxy fan doesnt even know what ldac of Sony is....believe me. Furthermore, as one previou... moresony xperia phones prob have the best audio quality. Definitely ahead of samsung tahts for sure not really a company known for their sound quality.
Tourettes Guy, 27 Dec 2016So a stock android experience is a gimmick? Stereo speakers are gimmick? IP rating is a gimmic... morenot to mention HI-res support, Noise cancelling chip build in the device, qnovo battery tech to prevent battery degredation over time.
and the front facing camera on the sony has the same specs as the rear of the iphone 7 hah! people are so stupid really.
Alien , 27 Dec 2016Sony did the 4K display on the Z5 Premium just to show they can. And that was in 2015. Please ... moreI love how everyone conveniently forgets this. When sony makes 4k everyone is quick to jump on how gimmicky it is even though sony gave teh option to buy 2 other phones. Meanwhile nothing gimmicky about QHD right?
logic with consumers is astounding. No wonder we get dumb shit from companies.
Tourettes Guy, 27 Dec 2016So a stock android experience is a gimmick? Stereo speakers are gimmick? IP rating is a gimmic... moreSony's skin isn't completely stock, water proofing and HQ audio is a personal preference and not mandatory, their camera is awful and can't produce good results even after tinkering with the settings and crashes while recording FHD/QHD video, the only thing left is specs and design which falls way, way behind the competitions.
lola lol lol, 26 Dec 2016I thought you Love Lenovo too, like himMeh I don't hate Lenovo if that's what you mean lol Sony's a different story.
imparanoic, 28 Dec 2016aptx bitrate is only 352 kbit/s, low for even regular wireless listening, thus, hence, why it... moreUmmm I've deleted the aptx.apk from my Sony phone :))
Actualy, now I have only 105 system apps, out of which 8 were added by me. Original number of apks was 274! Stock rom.
imparanoic, 28 Dec 2016aptx bitrate is only 352 kbit/s, low for even regular wireless listening, thus, hence, why it... moreA galaxy fan doesnt even know what ldac of Sony is....believe me.
Furthermore, as one previous galaxy s7 owner stated, sammys audio software is nowhere near good as XZs, Digital sound output through usb is full of bugs while on XZ it works flawlessly....
Alien , 27 Dec 2016Sony did the 4K display on the Z5 Premium just to show they can. And that was in 2015. Please ... moresony don't need to market mobile VR cos it has the vastly superior playstation vr, the market is significantly different as we presume that a samsung VR don't have any 'killer app' which will showcase the VR features, nor even spending more a few thousand US dollars for each app development for galaxy VR which shows their commitment, while spending millions more in advertising
on the other hand, sony and it's developer partners are spending millions of US dollars ( maybe even as much as US$100million) for VR games such as Gran Turismo sport, Resident evil 7, ace combat 7, dead or alive xtreme 3, RIGS, etc
lola lol lol, 26 Dec 2016How about the overheated 4k cam? And 4k screen that was used on z5p, and then ditched on xz? ... more4K cam is not half baked features, it had its limitations only, the higher spec and latest device will have longer record time and less limitations.
AnonD-491921, 22 Dec 2016Well samsung,HTC has aptX for better wireless audio,Lg G5 has aptxHD
Only thing that stands o... moreaptx bitrate is only 352 kbit/s, low for even regular wireless listening, thus, hence, why it sounds compressed (test a flac file and compare to wired earphones)
Aptx hd is only a lg g5 and v20, US$300 headset for only one phone and absolutely no digital audio players support it ( yet), and one headphones has been released sounds a bit like an expensive white elephant and it appears it won't be popular, also bitrate is at 576kbps which is ok, but still not audiophile quality
on the other hand, ldac bitrate is 990kbps, which is great and based on reviews, audiophile quality with the convenience of wireless, also over 30 headphones ( even modular MUC-M2BT1 portable receiver allows usage of sony ( and unofficially shure ) balanced armature , 4 av recievers, 10 bluetooth speakers, 5 mobile phones, 5 digital audio players
the difference, is like aptx is a golf gt (140bhp) comparing to a LDAC bmw m3 ( 404 bhp) is performance, while the aptx hd is like a golf gti (230bhp)
So a stock android experience is a gimmick? Stereo speakers are gimmick? IP rating is a gimmick? Quick update to Nougat is a gimmick? High resolution cameras are gimmicks? I love the fact that you consider high end brands as the weakest and praises the worst quality brands lol
lola lol lol, 26 Dec 2016How about the overheated 4k cam? And 4k screen that was used on z5p, and then ditched on xz?
... moreSony did the 4K display on the Z5 Premium just to show they can. And that was in 2015. Please name another smartphone with a 4K display now, when it's almost 2017.
Also, as Sony doesn't use VR in their smartphones, having more than FHD is simply useless, not to mention a battery and performance drainer.
The fact that you take your time to troll every comment only shows you have serious issues or you are so poor you took this job. Either way, you have at least 1 of 2 problems. That should worry you..
