Keep using inferior tech.
I'll choose innovation over workaround garbage.

Coming to the point, 40W/65W do deteriorates battery faster than the mobiles I use (Non ultra fast charging device). I'm a Sony fanboy but not a stupid man.

Since charging speed is a technology for you then i don't blame you.

So much bragging about the Zeiss lens yet failing.
You forgot to mention low light video which was just bad to be honest.
Other phones are way ahead in that department.
This video looks spectacular, the 21:9 views must be the trends now on and future. The LOOK color science looks very nice for the mood and inspiration.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2020Same app on Samsung would be praised. Anyone has any doubt? Of course. I'm yet to understand what's going on between Sony and GSMArena. Maybe the controversies drive comments. These bad reviews of Sonys attract some of the highest comments.
honestly its not bad, but what makes this look good is mainly color grading and decent editing.
what's missing (speciallying viewing this on a big screen):
- better stabilization. you can tell its a light little phone by how the frame moves around.
- better shutter angle control (but you mentioned that)
- dynamic range is poop - but i dont know if they can do a lot about that. i think its passable.
- sharpness - that's the killer imo. it doesnt look very sharp at all. it doesnt have to be great, but a good 50% better would make this look amazing (and im not saying software sharpning)
What is good:
- focus works great. better than many expensive cameras
- exposure control seems great, though maybe its just a skilled cameraman. there isnt any bad shift, there isnt any uneven exposition
These are things other phones don't do well and only the xperia does well. But IMO it seems "at least one more of the above" to truly differenciate.

Ali Bashir, 17 Jul 2020Zero reliability, bash the brand but try retaining some reliability in your comment, based on ... moreForget Sony, every other manufacturer which is stuck on 18W charging is using regular Li-pro batteries which give maximum 300-400 charge cycles before degradation starts kicking in.
So they arrive at 90% degradation on an average with around 500 charge cycles.
Xiaomi, Oppo and others have improved battery components and tweaked batteries to handle the higher Watt fast charging they provide.
This is how they can give higher capacity batteries along with their batteries being capable of handling high Watt charging at the same time providing 600-800 charge cycles before degradation kicks in.
With batteries easily lasting over a day owing to their big capacity, You are looking at 2-3 years of use and its producing same degradation as those phones with weak 5-10W fast charging over a similar span.
It's been almost 3 years since Huawei, OnePlus and others have provided 30W and above Fast charging.
If what you say was true, Internet forums would have been filled with battery degradation issues on these devices.
Those known big brands like Apple, Samsung, LG, Sony simply want to milk their customers.
Chinese manufacturers are at the forefront of innovation when it comes to fast charging technology.
Keep using your outdated 18W charger.

We rather trust these brands from which we've had no complaints than some brand boy who hates Chinese companies.
Most of these shots could have been taken in Photo Pro's 200 burst images sequence in 20fps and then interpolated in Resolve or similar to 25fps. That way you get insane out of camera detail.

Wise people only care about real life performance. From personal experience, 18W Sony/Apple smartphones have less battery degradation compared to 40W or 65W Chinese smartphones. You do realize that especially these so called cheap brands false advertise and exaggerate features than actual performance right?? That's what i call gimmick and fooling people.

Anonymous, 17 Jul 2020Samsung has the same feature for years. Even chinese phones have it. Don't spread false information. There are no side sense in Samsung or any other Chinese smartphones. It is purely Sony's tech. Don't just talk rubbish without proofs.

I had to recharge the battery two times a day due to intensive tasks, so far the battery health is 80%, hint it doesn't have the battery care feature.
Based on your statement, charging once a day means during the night, so do you watch over your phone while its charging because you don't have to.
Plus this subject is way out of the topic. Quarantine.

The 65W charging degraded battery to 91% after 800 cycles.
Sony and others who are stuck at 18W charging degrade battery to 90% over 500 charge cycles.
For An average user in 2020 who charges battery once a day, thats easily more than 2 years.
