Why? just why are the companies started giving such narrow and taller screens! whats the point? just why they moved away from 16:9? why? just why? why?

The thing is you just can't hold it with one hand comfortably because of its width. The gesture i was talking about in my last comment was swipe down to get notification bar. There is a reason why LG and Samsung went for taller display and i think that's a better way. Samsung should have included the gesture to swipe down to get notification bar, it's a must have feature especially for taller displays.
Looks like a great phone, but that small battery for that size is such a deal breaker

I don't believe this ! Sony already launched all phones.. No way ...its fake newz

They thought about the problems that people with small hands might face. There are options like swipe down to access notification bar, quick ball shortcuts, one handed mode where you can scale the screen down up to 3.5 inch (swipe from the home button to the right or left). And the palm rejection is excellent. It does take a while to get used to it, but it is as usable are the other bezel less phones out there (maybe even more usable than the curved ones). The durability is one thing you could complain about tho.

Don't get me wrong, it looks cool. Having more height is better than width. It makes the phone easier to hold or to do one handed operation. But it also makes notification bar unreachable which can be compensated by gesture like some of the phones use already.

" It is designed to show films recorded in CinemaScope or the modern anamorphic format of 2.39:1. The main benefit of this screen ratio is the absence of the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when viewing content in this format, and a constant display height when displaying other content with a lesser aspect ratio."
Designed with Cinematography in mind maybe?
First off, why the hell aren't more companies doing what xiaomi did? 16:9 is very possible in a bezel less smartphone and is much more friendly to day to day multimedia usage (youtube, etc).
Second, if they are making a 21:9 display, why not just pump the resolution up to 4k and use a flagship chipset?
Plus with support for all the the HDR standards it'll easily be the best smartphone for enjoying movies on the go. Maybe also a bigger battery.
And here come the copycats...
I'm still waiting for someone to explain the usefulness of a very narrow, very long display.
AnonD-597675, 02 May 2017Now that's the correct aspect ratio. Sony follows the widely preferred standards unlike other ... moreCorrect for what exactly? It literally helps in nothing other than movies. Portrait keyboard gets dinky, the screen is actually far smaller than what the diagonal implies , the phone gets too tall and unseemly and hard to use one handed. Literally this is a trend that must die ASAP.
If you go bezeless do it the way that Xiaomi did it: 17:9 . still good for movies (it's the film industry standard aspect ratio) and does not completely murder one handed use and/or portrait keyboard.
This trend must simply die, it's one more of "the industry vs the consumer", where it is cheaper to produce narrow screens but at the same time decreases the productivity of phones so it actually harms society at large so that certain OEMs can gain a petty penny.
A bit of how sealing the battery killed the pro crowd (used to make a whole day of screen time via spares). They are once again out to get the productivity from the people. Let's hope those phones won't sell. Let's hope Apple will use 16:9 and *kill* those OEMs.
Not every new feature is a good feature. Some are a decisive step back in usability and usefulness.
