If they continue this route, by 2020 they'll shut their mobile division. They have the camera sensors in the business and they use the best one for their flagships, yet they have the worst camera among other flagships which are using their sensors. It's been like that for years now. A simple solution like an OIS and a better image processing would solve this issue, yet they insist on not adding it.
They see the whole market going for the bezel-less trend, yet they bring a phone in the second half of 2017 with a 4 years design. You may defend them and say that other phones like the iPhone 8 series have the same design for years, but the truth is that this is Apple we're talking about. They can make a bottle of water for 100$ and people will still buy it. They have millions of loyal fans who'll buy anything they produce. Sony can barely sell 3 million phones for a whole year, not to mention that their loyal fans maybe are 2000 or 3000 people in the world.
hohoohoo it looks like a note 8 but without edge screen. bye bye sony
Hahahaha lot of comments... Because its Sony Newz... Carry on.. 2018 going to rocks...
Larry638, 30 Nov 2017Just read Qualcomm SD845 SoC isn't producted by Samsung but instead by TSMC in another article... moreThere was a news covering at GSMArena before around October stated , that Samsung already secured all production of Snapdragon 845 chipset , despite they're no longer producing the Snapdragon chipsets itself (S845 now produced and manufactured by TSMC) , until the Galaxy S9 and S9+ released to public at earliest January 2018 or Q1 2018 as rumors flies on .
Xdapro, 30 Nov 2017Software camera is the best Ui is perfect. 4k hdr ips > crapmoleds pentline low resol... moreoops sorry, sony wont grant your wish. sony need a lot more profit, so they will follow what most people want and ignore fanboys
Ali Bashir, 30 Nov 2017Based on what, on your trends to another brands, go to YouTube and see xz 2017 series are dest... moreShall we bring DxO into the conversation?? Seeing as the fanboys loved DxO so much, but now lately all of a sudden not so much for some reason :) They are after all, the best at checking camera quality, pros that know what they are doing, not some random youtube chop.
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2017Sony has the worst camera software in the business. There, fixed that for you.Based on what, on your trends to another brands, go to YouTube and see xz 2017 series are destroying the camera comparisons and the comment threads, stop dropping these random nonsense.
60ez, 30 Nov 2017LOL. bezelless is good.
but they will fail again if they:
1. dont improve thir crappy camera... moreSoftware camera is the best
Ui is perfect.
4k hdr ips > crapmoleds pentline low resolutions.
Crapmoleds is dead the future is microled, oled fail tecnology
Lol at all the desperate rationalizations already flying around when this phone is still months away from actuality. Stay classy, sony fans.
Indrockzz, 30 Nov 2017Hope Sony gets right camera sensor this time.. They should use bigger pixels instead of increa... moreThe IMX400 has 1.22um pixels, the difference from 1.4-1.5um pixels is not that significant for low light performance, its all up to the software. If Google got their hands on the IMX400, they would be able to take 2x clearer photos even if the pixels are a bit smaller due to the much higher resolution and 2x more pixels to use for fusion pixel imaging and pure 4:4:4 chroma. Sony needs to improve the image processing software if they want to fight the big guys.
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2017As usual, Samsung takes all the SD845Knowing that their snapdragon variants share is little to none against the competitors which uses this chipset, just a dirty move to damage the competitors nothing else, blame Qualcomm in the first place.
Finally the first exciting Xperia since the Z3, can't wait to see what impact this can land on Samsung/LG if this lands on US carriers.
Ali Bashir, 30 Nov 2017How is it possible that this smartphone has smaller dimensions and bigger battery and slimmer ... moreprobably they use denser circuit board design called 'stacked slp'. iphone x use it.
Be Nice To Others, 30 Nov 2017Don't really care much about bezel less, but if this is what's going to shut the mouth up of t... moresony listen to us and they dont listen to the fanboys.
so please be nice to us.
LOL. sony need haters to make them work harder.
How is it possible that this smartphone has smaller dimensions and bigger battery and slimmer design than the xz premium???
Be Nice To Others, 30 Nov 2017The main difference is that Sony will take the same thing to a whole new level. Just like what... moreLOL. bezelless is good.
but they will fail again if they:
1. dont improve thir crappy camera software
2. dont change their old featureless ui
3. dont use oled
it seems you are the one who are always triggered by all my comments, dear sweet little baby.
