Nick Tagataka, 24 Feb 2020Damn, that's impressive AF (pun intended).
Symmetrical bezels with dual speakers?
A good o... moreIt's a great phone honestly I think refresh rate would've been too much drain on the battery considering the 4k screen and 5g but that 4k tho.
If i wasn't waiting for the note 20 series I'd definitely get this do you think you can really see the 4k on the screen?
VectorR, 24 Feb 2020Actually very small, subtle differences with previous models. Cameras are nearly the same (in ... moreThe main cam is actually a completely new sensor, it's a 12 MP 1/1.7 inch sensor(much larger than the previous 1/2.55, and now has dual PD and a new pixel design for twice as much light capture, megapixels is not the only specs for a camera.
Mel, 24 Feb 2020Sony 2020 with same camera from 2019 that is bummer :(
If it will be price as $500-$650 it w... moreMain cam is same of s20.
Ultra wide is same sensor main camera of xperia 5.
Only the "zoom" and selfie are same.
Sony 2020 with same camera from 2019 that is bummer :(
If it will be price as $500-$650 it will sell but if starts from $650-$800. It will be flop.again.
beautiful design by Sony, as always
love the flat side bezel, bring back the iPhone 4 vibe
Nick Tagataka, 24 Feb 2020IMO this phone will be seriously a good buy if it's priced under $900. I think it's still wort... moreusually sony is pretty well optimised. i will also wait for the price to go down a bit, there is no 5g in my country yet anyway.
[deleted post]I don't see any phones from your beloved brand in here
This year is not the time to upgrade my cellphone but if I have to buy a new phone this year i rather buy a phone from Xiaomi or Realme than wasting my money on Samsung phones because why should I have to spend a lot of money if Samsung does not provide the best support in terms of updates and security.
In terms of prestige Samsung phones will also always be inferior to the iPhone and even though iPhones have expensive prices at least they provide long support for their phones as well as the best support from third-party applications.
Raky, 24 Feb 2020And a price??? Is is also over $1000!? If it is...sorry Sony, but I won't be looking all ov... moreIMO this phone will be seriously a good buy if it's priced under $900. I think it's still worth paying $1000 though, assuming that they nail the software optimisation as well.
About the high refresh date screen from 00:17...
Things i don't like:
- No high refresh rate (still not sure i can notice that)
- no reverse wireless charging
- design with no curved glass
- side mounted FP
- camera setup
- 3.5 jack with DAC
- IP rating
- Qi charging
- front facing stereo
But still, everything needs to be checked
Shui8, 24 Feb 2020Couldnt agree more. Sony upped their game this year.I should also add the fact that I love the combination of chamfered edges and flat sides with chromium painting, it gives the phone a unique and fresh but also nostalgic feeling at the same time.. sort of reminding me of iPhone 5S and Xperia Z2's boxy, industrial design. Sony is serious this time around to take on Samsung and major Chinese phone manufacturers. This but with SD855 instead of SD865 is what the first gen Xperia 1 should've been. I've never got so excited with a new Xperia flagship since 2014, and now I'm eager for real life reviews to come up.
Exyvia, 24 Feb 2020The width of the phone is less than an Iphone 11 because of its 21:9 which makes it easier to hold.To be precise, for 16:9 content like videos you have a black border on both sides, and the size is comparable to older smartphones: 6.5" * 0.8 = 5.2". The Samsung Galaxy S5/S7 have 5.1" size and no border because it is 16:9, a flat display as well. Of course, there are use cases for a taller display like social media browsing, but normally the entries are unrelated, and there is no advantage in seeing more in the overview. Ebooks could profit a bit, but of course a tablet or desktop LCD are far better with multi-column display.
Shanti Dope, 24 Feb 2020If Sony could bring back the headphone jack, then Apple and Samsung can do it as well. All it ... moreProbably not 21:9 4K display because Apple probably would hate a display with stretched aspect ratio and battery drain from extra resolution, but it's likely that they would bring 120Hz 3K panel instead.
Love the Community, 24 Feb 2020Blah blah blah you whack jack hater! You were one of us. A jack is an essential part of a smar... moreWhat I was supposed to say was the jack shouldn't have been removed in the first place. Sony did it out of peer pressure and their sales are bleeding not only because of lackluster camera algorithms but the lack of a jack as the people saw LG, Samsung and Sony to be the last bastion of 3.5mm jacks at a time. With Samsung gone because of it, Sony will soon comeback thanks to Alpha Team's involvement with the camera algorithms and the headphone jack. Soon Samsung will take a 180 (Galaxy S7) by bringing back what the people wanted which is a jack. Oh yeah, to really kill the wireless fad, they should have a Quad or Sabre DAC equipped.
Tann Hauser, 24 Feb 2020Fortunately for you, it has DNG/Raw support.
Heck it even has alpha mirrorless cam interface ... moreSaw that as well. These are the way Sony should've done long ago! Those are one of the key specs that i'm interested about.
Seems like they are seriously combine all the expertize they had on other department onto this beast!
Sony havent made me excited for years, until now. Thank you Sony.
Whackcar, 24 Feb 2020The reason why Sony brought the headphone jack back is because their TWS earbuds don't sell th... moreAbsolutely agree with all that you said. 3.5mm jack is dead for me for quite a while already. Love my Galaxy Buds and will never go back to wires. I like the fact that Sony is still alive in smartphone market but unfortunately they make a very little difference so far. Samsung or Huawei high achievements are not even in far perspective...
Damn, that's impressive AF (pun intended).
Symmetrical bezels with dual speakers?
A good ol' headphone jack?
A triple camera setup with a larger sensor, faster burst and longer zoom reach?
Bring 'em on Sony, you've already nailed the hardware side. Now, if you can develop software that can take full advantage of those impressive specs that will be perfect. This phone is on my wishlist right along with Mi 10 Pro and P40 Pro Premium. Superb job from Sony so far.
With that said, I wish it had a real 90/120Hz display instead of some weird "motion blur reduction" implementation. That sounds a bit like a cheap marketing talk to me than anything else. But I really, really love the fact that they decided to bring back the headphone jack. Finally there's a phone company who came back to their senses.
NipponFan, 24 Feb 2020Omg new camera lenses, classic Xperia boxy look, battery is actually good, I'm totally buying this Actually very small, subtle differences with previous models. Cameras are nearly the same (in fact all four of them), no 90Hz or 120Hz screen but cheap trick instead, same design, no Wireless / Reverse Wireless charging again (damn it!), no in-screen fingerprint sensor or 3D face recognition, useless 5G for now and the same over $1000 price tag again. I ain't buying it Sony, thanks!
