Rafe Firmani, 17 Nov 2017The black bar on 18:9 screen is on the top and bottom... or, on left and right side? Please e... moreOn super wide 18:9 (2:1) screen regular 16:9 content will leave black bars on sides (left and right).
The black bars on AMOLED screen will cause burn-in because the pixels in the black bar area remain unused while the rest of the pixels are used. It's also true if you watch 4:3 movies (or play PS1 emulator games) on both 16:9 and 18:9 screen.
WWWWWWWWWWW, 17 Nov 2017Am i the only one thinking that watching videos/movies with black bar on top and bottom is bet... moreThe black bar on 18:9 screen is on the top and bottom... or, on left and right side?
Please enlightens me
This is like lipstick on a pig.
What's even worse:
....having a state of the art OLED screen, which cost you a lot of money, and is very fragile, with curved sides that cause glaring from light sources, it also drains the non-removable battery excessively due to its 3K high resolution/600ppi overkill density, but it's only 5 inch small size, a non-standard pixel width, with a 19:9 weird aspect ratio phone, and a distracting camera notch in the middle, trying to watch a video that's 360p, one that is highly compressed by YouTube, despite having a short video length, and its paused by a minute long non-skippable ad, and it is buffering .......oh, and the person recorded the video vertically!
Come, the future is here! ; )
The new display aspect ratio does not become more popular. It just gets shoved down people's throat. 18:9 aspect ratio is useless. It's a planned obsolescence to sell new phones and products.
if you have trouble making it work delete cache from app settings and open it again. after a few seconds of watching a video is suddenly worked!
Opening apps by a split second faster does not make a phone better. No one really cares about speed comparisons on youtube but Sony fanboys. What makes a phone better is its design, screen and camera quality, features and UI. And those are where Sony lag big time. Sony Xperia looks out of place and out of date in 2017. They look like dinosaur phones. It also doesn't help that the UI has not changed a bit since Kitkat. They look so ancient. Camera quality is also the worst among flagships. Plus loading them with pointless features like 3D scanning and a barely 3 seconds of 960fps video? Who even uses these?
The iPhone X, Note8 and S8 are the best smartphones released this year. The XZP is probably the worst.
maybe its stupid question for 3/4 of people here but ...who the hell watching youtube on their phones ? ofc I can understand some situations but watching few hours/a day ? Its not better to watch on your TV/console/PC and enjoy fullHD/4k properly ?
SwaggyP, 17 Nov 2017Those movies trailers I was sure were 2.33:1 , but noooo Anonymous tells me that they're 16:9.... moreThere's a difference between 21:9 and 18:9. Guess you can't comprehend that. Google is simply cropping the video in this case and people think they are seeing more content..
My LG Q6 youtube now plays fit to screen 18:9. Now. Thanks youtube.. Videos look amazing on full screen view now😍
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2017There is no, No, NO contents with 2:1 A.ratioThose movies trailers I was sure were 2.33:1 , but noooo Anonymous tells me that they're 16:9...
(search "ultra wide" on youtube, you'd find plenty o' content and after this upgrade they'll eventually become the norm)
I would have thought Youtube wanted people to watch their videos, but they were quick to create a functionality so owners of the iPhone Notch can miss 30% of what's happening on the videos
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2017LOL cropped is even worse than having black bars.
18:9 Is just ridiculous. Smaller than 16:9 ... moreSo you enjoyed the content that had big black bars and small screen on the middle?
Much content on youtube *is* of ultra wide aspect ratio and you used to have to watch it on a small rectangle in the middle ... no more. This fixes it, you're welcome to not use it on 16:9 videos (that would be silly indeed).
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2017There is no, No, NO contents with 2:1 A.ratioActually, almost EVERY movie have a 1.85:1 or 2.39:1 aspect ratio.
