Anonymous, 30 Jan 2018iPhone displays are made by LG too. Nope. Iphone X oled is made by Samsung
Sony fans will not bother until they get tired like a Notch on Apple X.
Its a very typical that companies making what they want to make not what customers wants.
Having best of best its not always what people would like to have.
Mostly the affordable price does everything.

Black Russian, 29 Jan 2018Sony phones are affordable for the specs and quality it gives out. Pricing is perfect. Honestl... moreMan i am not a Sony fan but i can tell for a same price as sony does the Xiaomi for example can make a 1/3 better phone.
Or a genuine same phone as Sony for a 1/3 less in price than with a Sony sticker on it.

Claudiu.Lucian, 30 Jan 2018Why Sony isn't using their in-house OLED panels from JDI???Not ready yet
Sony's doing a splendid job with their LCD IPS displays though; they may not be the brightest out there but brightest is not always the way to go if the most accurate reproduction of a scene is the objective. Just don't mess that up in favour of crayon-like colour intensity.
Skynet.2020, 30 Jan 2018Why all go for oled even if samsung has super amoled"Super" AMOLED is nothing more than marketing...it's just OLED made by Samsung (like QLED is nothing more than Quantum LED, which is used for ages by other companies)

I just hope Sony is ordering plain white flexible organic led panels from LG, to be used as backligh, and putting rgb film on top of it.
That would go in line with JDIs and JOLEDS vision of oled mobile tech, and would avoid most oled negatives.
Tann Hauser, 30 Jan 2018Oled or lcd is not a selling point for a phone, never was. Marketing is selling phones. Bu... moreWell u might want to consider it after a few months from its release, probably they'll do something about it
LG OLED? Really? They has not enough example of Pixel 2 xl screen fail? Hope that's not true.
Why Sony isn't using their in-house OLED panels from JDI???
Sony "spartans" prefer their old IPS, please no OLED for sony!
Personally, I don't care about the brand. If they make a phone that has 18:9 screen resolution, about equal overall dimensions comparing to competitors, oled panel, equally good (to competitors) night performance of camera (they need to add OIS) and a good design, I'll consider buying one.
