Last security update was beginning of January; build number 47.2.A.11.228.
Phone was announced in Feb. 2017, so it got 3 years of security updates and 2 major OS upgrades. If one counts from release date, then it got 2.5 years of security updates and 2 major OS upgrades.

Levy, 13 Jul 2020'Series' is singular.Although series is a singular noun whose very meaning implies a plurality, it can be "pluralized" just like any other count noun.
Okay Mr. Grammar?

but runs in 1080p 95% of the time.
On a daily basis, the screen resolution
won't affect battery life. (because 1080p)
Unless of course you spend the day streaming 4K content on
one of the very few '4K enabled' apps.
So yeah, with 1080p @ 60hz, this phone DOES have a worse
battery life than rivals with 2K @ 120hz.

10-15% sacrifice of battery life isn't much if it improves overall user experience.
Besides every higher refresh rate manufacturer gives an option to reduce screen refresh rate back to 60hz.
Android.Master, 13 Jul 2020Quality can come at cheap prices.
If you look at hardware of the phone, it's the same pr... moreSame hardware as Chinese Flagships? So what do you expect? Do expect SONY to use Snapdragon 875? Every flagship will have to use the same Internals and somewhat similar hardware to be called a Flaghip. Why do you think the S20 Ultra with Snapdragon 865 costs $1500 and the RedMagic 5g with Snapdragon 865 costs $500? Or do you think having a headphone jack is bad? or the ability to capture 20 sharply focused pictures per second(which no other phone can even think of doing) is bad?or using the 4k OLED panel that non of the others have the guts to use bad? and if you say $k on a phone is overkill...why do others use 2k panels instead of FullHD? I am 100% sure that you have never ever experienced a 4k phone, First experience yourself and then say anything if you want to say.
About quality...Why do you think people buy Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki when they can buy Chinese brands with same perforamance for less?
and about brand name, Why do you think a GAP t-shirt costs $50 and a Balenciaga t-shirt costs $500 but still those who want and afford buy it?? Same here with the $1200 price tag. those who want and afford will buy. S20 Ultra, iPhone 11pro max for $1500 is justifies and $1200 for this is not justified?
Software experience is much better in Chinese phones?really? Do you even know what you are talking about? each and every phone enthusiast in this world including literally every big tech youtubers to a small tech enthusiast like me hate the Chinese UI these Chinese phones have. If you love it then that says a lot about you. Using these heavy skins on top of Android wont make it fast. That y Oneplus became popular in tech community because it didnot have those heavy skins used close to stock experience with customizations. You you know why Samsung ditched TouchWiz UI for One UI??? Do some research before posting baseless arguments on public platforms/forums.
I understand it may not be worth spending $1200 of users. but does that mean people like you should bash and talk nonsense about a phone without even using it???
I also saw you saying that 5000mah battery should be the standard in 2020 flagships etc? how do you know? who are you to decide? you can say that you want a phone with min 5000mah but you cannot say what a 75 years old Japanese tech giant should do. I use Xperia 1 with 3200mah battery (yes 3200mah, overseas/international model has 3330mah battery but the original japanese xperia 1 has 3200mah)and the same sized 4k display. I easily get 7hrs plus Screen on Time and it easily lasts me a day. and as a normal human being i go to sleep at night. i plug in my phone before i sleep and Battery Care takes care of the rest. Yes 4000mah may be less than others but Xperia 1ii is the phone that provides best endurance per 100mah of battery among the SD865 using phones. And it easily lasts a day for noramls use.

And where is the video that shows the battery consumption difference between 4K and QHD?
Let me guess, Sony nay sayers as usual, i have never found myself in need to declare my dislike for something let alone hate, my theory is that these guys have huge doubts and they want to get rid of it so badly.
Guys at least respect the posting rules of this site.
Android.Master, 13 Jul 2020Most users don't mind 4k to 2k downgrade for higher refresh rate. That's the choice... morePersonal choice is a wonderful thing. I do question people who spend all day slagging off a phone they don't like when they don't even have it. I like the fact there is choice rather than having every phone looking the same and having the same features.

I'm not here protecting sony... I'm just saying the general belief of 120hz consuming much more power in real life is flawed and misguided. Higher resolutions on the other hand consumes more power. Hence, 83hrs on a 4k screen with 4000mah is good. That's just the point I'm trying to make.
If you feel like calculating it with 1000mah(Assuming it has a 5000mah that it) extra based, then be my guest. That's approx 20.75hr per 1000mah. So for 5000mah that phone can manage close to 100hrs approx endurance with gsma test.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2020Nice dreamThat's all you can say? Can't come up with any fact or argument? Well, that makes it clear, then.
joe nodden, 13 Jul 2020Yet Sony fanboys love talking up the battery life of their terrible phones. Sony fanboys live in a parallel universe where Sony phones are the best thing to ever come out but in reality are just average devices,hence they sell poorly and have had to scale down operations.
