But you all swarm in to call those factual claims hate, flooding, and copying.

According your IP You are one of them.
Crytek, 19 Feb 2019So many people bashing Sony's new phones before even seeing it... thats dumb you know.
you ... moreNo. You clearly have a warped view if what actually happens here. All pages get at least a couple bad comments. The difference is on Sony pages anything that is not praising the device or company is devoured by the Sony page defenders. Even if it's factual or of real user experience. It's called hate or etc... and the defenders usually come in swarms.
Their devices are great and in the last couple of years they finally fixed some really bad long standing issues. But still have a few things holding them back. And they are simply over priced for lacking certain standards. Many are over priced lately unfortunately. But Google and Sony are two of the worst currently. And please don't say iPhone cause we all clearly know that. It's no excuse for the rest of them and is starting to effect people pretty negatively.
They are starting to wake up some... though they could've just streamlined their own design a little better for most devices...
The sad thing is that they have the potential to easily be more. To even be battling Samsung and apple even for tech and popularity. But the ones running it constantly keep them more just afloat rather than shining or succeeding. With their tech, money, and brand recognition it would be easy.
A smart Shooter, 20 Feb 2019Actually it only looks tall but not too tall, because it has narrower width so people will see... moreIndeed, I don't represent 90%, but sony's falling smartphone sales for past 5 years prove that they don't listen.
One has to learn from mistakes, not repeat them over and over every year.
s-pen pusher, 20 Feb 2019i guess we can't say that for now, but i mostly agree because the aspect ratio is really only ... moreI think Sony can adjust the length for better display because Sony have making TV, they know how, even those notch phone can do such hide and unhide peekaboo to makes you smile, so you no need worry for it.
I'm concerned about the dev support on the new display aspect ratio though. As long as Sony keeps the bezel just as small as the rest of the industry does and solves all the app compatibility issue relating to the aspect ratio, I'm all for it.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2019Which mobile games do you play at 1:1 ratio?All of them. Take a Blackberry 10 device, install .apk, run the game and see it yourself

Most Developers won't support this new 21:9 because only few people use xperia.
Mr. Anonymous, 19 Feb 2019Unless foldable, that is too tall for a phone. Sony will sell even fewer phones in 2019, unle... moreActually it only looks tall but not too tall, because it has narrower width so people will see it is very tall at first. The dimensions of the phone is slim enough and better for one hand operating because the width also is design for one hand handheld. One thing you are wrong you can not represent as 90% consumer. You should let consumer have chance to choose.

They even scale good on box 1:1 ratio as well. Games do that as well. It should be no problem as long as an app have a proper up to date code.
This phone's aspect ratio will be VERY problematic. Most apps won't bother updating in order to fit properly on the new XZ4/XA3 screens, so you'll see a large portion of the screen being letterboxed or cropped, specially when watching videos. Maybe you'll see big popular apps like Twitter, Facebook, etc getting an update to properly support the new Sony phones, but other niche apps will won't work as intended.
Buyers beware of this. Please acknowledge my warning.
That said, everything else about the phone I've read so far seems extremely solid.
