Anonymous, 06 Aug 2017And Sony fails the basics. Can't back up your argument?
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 05 Aug 20171. Who cares if it has UFS 1, 2, or even 3? If the storage space is 64GB. It's still small! Le... more1- the Ufs 2.1 storage is awesome. 64Gb storage is enough to run all needs. 128GB storage for some person like you, actually that's not my concern, sd card can be more flexible for different personal usage. Sd card you can have quality one, not every sd card can be flaws like you said. The internal storage with higher GB if quality cheap then it could get problem too.
2- I try cardboard, VR is still close like cardboard make no difference. Personally, I don't like the distance too close.
3- bezel make display sturdy, that is important to me, because I drop my phone on road and it is still alive. It doesn't crack. Recently crashed with metal doors still alive got some cracking this time, but it still alive and work smooth, I am glad that my Z2 isn't curve screen..
4- thats video link you provide only show the test the Samsung phone and battery by charging and discharge to make sure no problem. It isn't like Qnovo. Qnovo battery charging technology giving the proven consistent and safe. No need to waiting 2 years later, there are tests and proven with the qnovo technology battery is safe and zero safety failure. If you don't believe, please read this official website. Either believe a reporter or science proven? That's your choice.
5- use a smartphone like a computer with the PC, but why not leave the smartphone alone and just using the PC. And it require a Samsung dex as a interface.
6- simplicity is always nice, charging animation is fancy. Will you get tire to see the same charging animation? Then download a third-party app to enjoy new feelings.
7- IRL, I don't use fingerprint, but if use it when wet, I will shake off the moisture and use as usual, IRL I will also wipe it up, I don't want my pocket get wet and it also a maintenance from a smart user.
8- The DTS HD sound enhancement and else can't upscaling the compressed music file to near hi-res quality. The headphones support hi-res "is actually a certification not a basic requirement, it is a recommended, the hi-res also work with a better headphone, so no need misleading people.
Base on my Z2 experience, the listening music is Pleasure and Carefree and Superb, even the compressed music file, the DSEE HX can upscaling the quality to match near to hi-res quality, Clear bass is nice too tune with the equaliser and select the Headphone accessory in the setting menu. If you have older/other 3.5mm earphone/headphones/wireless etc (if you have hi-res headphones that's must be fantastic+++) also can connect to the phone, just match the audio settings follow your favourite. It is flexible for personal preference. BTW, you have to use Xperia music app, it is Awesome and Gorgeous! Plus it have the Lyrics searching extentions. Sony delivery the best audio quality in smartphone, the competitors still have more to learning.

Foxtrot2Novmbr, 06 Aug 2017Not used a sony phone? LOL! I have xperia ZL as my first smartphone. Followed by Xperia Z2. I ... moreYes Sony phones are the worst at heating up, same as their cameras. I know because my father owned the Xperia V and I owe one of their mirrorless cameras. Sony=overheating.

The graphite heat plate works excellently.
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 06 Aug 2017And you think whatever you do on your smartphone. Is also being done by others?
"I wouldn'... moreThere's no compact android that browses faster than the x compact, and there won't be till the xz1 compact launches.
Obviously everyone wants better hardware, but you can't buy devices that don't currently exist.
Do you understand yet?
xxxz, 05 Aug 2017storage is expandable and people still buy 32gb iphone 7
good with the vr thing, samsung ha... moreAnd you think people buy a 256GB microSD card which cost $180? Now what would happen if the memory card gets corrupted? Can you still restore it even if the computer refuses to open the SD card and gives you a reply of "Format Drive"? You think that all people buy 32GB iphone 7? Do you know that most people would buy a factory unlocked iphone with 128 to 256GB of storage?
"buy a ps4 vr which is 1000 times better experience than a mobile vr" And you think people can afford a playstation vr which cost $349 to $399? Let's not forget. "ALL SONY VR GAMES AREN'T FREE". Meanwhile, there are hundreds of mobile VR apps that are mostly free and some requires a purchase. So which do you think that I can save money?
"difficult to use sometimes watching a movie or playing games in landscape ". Are you sure? Why don't you ask those 20 million S8 and S8+ users about difficulties in using the unit in landscape mode?
"samsung still doesnt give enough software support from your pc to repair a bricked phone or in short" I have a lot of friends who are into smartphone repair business. So I don't have any problem when my phone gets bricked.
"it takes single second to unlock my phone with face recognition and fingerprint is also faster" Like those people who have hyperhidrosis. Can they unlocked the phone faster with those wet and sweaty hands?
"OMG ,why on earth do people think dolby or atmos will ever offer something like clear audio, crisp sound quality or hi res feature". Have you ever encounter these features on a smartphone?
"THEY KNOW SONY IS KING OF SOUND QUALITY. Someday try ldac and you wont say a word about dolby". Oh and do you think that dolby is all I'm saying? Let's see. Let's compare with other sound competitors:
A. HIFI QUAD DAC which has 32bit/384KHz sound output. vs the 24bit/192KHz found on sony.
B. DTS X which is commonly used for home theater systems and surround sound effects. And offers good sound quality when watching movies or playing games. Here's an actual video from dts X:
Can you find me a good video demo for those LDAC which gives a better surround sound than dts?
Why did you bring the OP5 in this part which is a copy of an iphone 7 plus?
xxxz, 05 Aug 2017sorry but i would give you some info cuz you have not used a sony phone maybe
No.8 point you... moreNot used a sony phone? LOL! I have xperia ZL as my first smartphone. Followed by Xperia Z2. I stopped purchasing any higher xperia models due to overheating. And literally, sony didn't provide a heatsink for the snapdragon powered device. This is proven once you open an expose the internal components. Now if you look at the teardown of the Xperia XZ premium:
It shows that there's no heatsink. Which proves my answer about xperia phones having a thermal runaway after longs of use. Even the camera is also overheating.
Yes you have an MDR950 and has HiRes. And a Nia X2 headset. Now how about trying to use a headphones with DTS sound enhancement, Dolby atmos, and Quad Dac jack?
You seem to be a rich person. So why don't you those and reply back after you tried them?
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2017Their phones will slow down and they will regret for their purchase. Remove touchwiz? Lol just... moreI have a sony xperia phone and it slows down too you know. If you don't pretty much do the ff. in your daily task of using a smartphone such as:
1. Using a cleanmaster to clear up those cache.
2. Clear Web browser history, and data after using it
3. Closing all running background apps
4. Disabling unnecessary bloat apps.
So no matter which brand of smartphones you have. All of them would surely slow down. Especially with updated apps.
And you think that Sony and HTC aren't using stock android once you purchase them?
Surficial, 05 Aug 2017You really care alot don't you? And I ain't aquors
I do a lot of web browsing on my x compact... moreAnd you think whatever you do on your smartphone. Is also being done by others?
"I wouldn't use most of the extra features offered by any phone". You own a x compact and yet you don't care if you want to have bigger internal storage atleast 64 to 128GB, 4-6GB of Ram, A Dual LED true tone flash, a bigger 4.8 inch display with 760p, and a bulkier battery capacity which could be a 4,000 to 5,000 battery capacity on a xperia compact? Let's not forget the processor which should've been a snapdragon 820. Yet Sony refuses to used the 820 and gone with the 650. You conduct a lot of web browsing on your phone. Yet you didn't wish it could do better?
Anonymous , 05 Aug 2017All features are useless offer by Samsung. Samsung is expensive crap that will lag very much. If you love lag go and buy it.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2017another plastic phonePlastic is the best. It doesnt crack and shatter (unless extreme misuse) like glass, or dent and paint chip off like metal.
pl2rts, 05 Aug 2017Hmm 720p screen. Last compact had 1080p screen and other good specs for 4.5 screen but the pri... moreZ1c 720p
No full .... They are all small. 4.6" except Z1c ( 4.3")
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 04 Aug 2017Beat many flagships? HAHAHAAHAHA! Let me ask you:
1. S8 and S8 plus, and even note 8 is offer... morestorage is expandable and people still buy 32gb iphone 7
good with the vr thing, samsung has this feature as a main but i would say try a 960fps someday or buy a ps4 vr which is 1000 times better experience than a mobile vr
screen ratio doesnt mean it has all the advantages. phone looks beautiful but on the other hand difficult to use sometimes watching a movie or playing games in landscape
samsung still doesnt give enough software support from your pc to repair a bricked phone or in short (pc suit)
ambient screen is waste of battery imo but sony is going to give it in next models
it takes single second to unlock my phone with face recognition and fingerprint is also faster then samsung flagships (op5 has fastest)
OMG ,why on earth do people think dolby or atmos will ever offer something like clear audio, crisp sound quality or hi res feature
google is not mad after getting all the sony sony sound features in android 8
THEY KNOW SONY IS KING OF SOUND QUALITY .
someday try ldac and you wont say a word about dolby
specs of op5 is just double ram than xzp but still lost in many apps(including games) loading while no feature like :
sd card storage
hi res audio
bravia engine display
with just 150-200$ less price
this world is full of gimmicks
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 05 Aug 20171. Who cares if it has UFS 1, 2, or even 3? If the storage space is 64GB. It's still small! Le... moresorry but i would give you some info cuz you have not used a sony phone maybe
No.8 point you just mentioned is purely insane for an xperia user about hi res
i own an mdr950 and before that a 5$ (brand: nia (x2)) with no aptx support but still hi res and clear audio works smooth
just bother yourself buying one cuz its less than half the price of buying an orignal wired headphones samsung would offer
better get some info about the extra features sony gives which is only visible to those who owns a premium device called Xperia
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 05 Aug 2017Did you know that you could disable or remove that laggy touchwiz UI? https://www.androidpit.... moreTheir phones will slow down and they will regret for their purchase. Remove touchwiz? Lol just phone with stock android. Sony and HTC are very smooth too.
