There's one question I'd like to know...
"What are they smoking/taking at Sony HQ?"

Note 10 has a hole it shouldn't be at the center if you're watching your TV with a hole like this, it should be replaced/repaired. If you don't understand please/try cover your TV with a piece of cut out black paper and enjoy your shows.

i do hope Sony did bring "compact" line up, not a gigantic compact
Anonymous, 19 Nov 2019True. I'm tired of even looking at $1k non-Chinese smartphones. Just because Chinese ones can ... moreEven entry level smartphones today are powerful enough to handle FHD displays. Flagships must already come with at least QHD if the screen size would be 6.5" and beyond.
IF ONLY we adopted this change much earlier, then we might be seeing progress with 4K HDR 120Hz OLED displays already, but since only Sony is making an effort into developing the future of mobile displays, then surely they won't be able to sustain it for longer, given that they're not making enough profit for their world class level screens.
XZ2 Premium is already both in 4K HDR and 144Hz rate, imagine that hardware being continued down the road.
Then we do have mobile gaming on the rise, right? So a high-resolution and high-refresh rate screen is a must. After all, what good is a 120Hz screen if it's not OLED and only in QHD, yet still would cost beyond $1000.
Flagship SoCs today are proven capable of handling the resolution already, so why not make full utility of that power from those chipsets?
If people can't seem to find any good use to the insane performance of flagship processors on daily usage, then perhaps the brilliant quality display brought by 4K HDR 120Hz OLED would be enough to fulfill people's needs.

[deleted post]After I've owned and used so many expensive phones every year, I really like the pixel . I'm not a blind fan, I'm still using a galaxy note and an iPhone.
based on that stupid curve design, it will be 6"+ screen with less than 3000mAh as the battery room is robbed by the design
Headphone jack and good speakers are removed to save space. A year later, an enormous grid of redundant cameras shows up like 1/4 of the phone is empty space that needs to be filled with wasted money.
Hey Sony, please give us 5000mAH and front firing stereo speaker like HTC do. We don't need that QHD screen. FHD is enough for normal user.
yuka, 18 Nov 2019No compact, no Sony. No jack, no Sony. And don't tell me the Xperia 5 is compact, i've see... moreTotally agree with you. Sony making "real" compact phones was the only thing that distinguished them and made me even consider getting a Sony phone, but now, they're just making more of the same, generic product that's saturated the market for years. They're overpriced and nothing special.
Let me get this straight, Sony is failing because of their flawed business model and instead of fixing it, they're doing even more of the same? Bye bye Sony Mobile division.

HDR values can be easily tweaked. Not really an issue.
Color profiles can also be changed according to your liking.
