Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017When solid state batteries arrive, Qnovo will be out the window...you can wait another 5 years for these kind of batteries, and if they will ever be released. The cost are way too high to produce them in mass. Expect a 100-150$ price tag for a single battery
Tann Hauser, 13 Sep 2017And qnovo research and algorithm aims to prevent exactly all that...and prolong limitations of... morei really hope you're right. Batteries haven't improved by much lately. While manufacters process SOC at 10nm, which is amazing and later in 7nm and lower, this helps battery consumption greatly. Android optimizations with every OS update is a must have too.
If only a different type of battery would be engineered to hold more charge, now that would be impressive.
Imagine a whole new battery type giving you 3days of full charge, this could revolutionate the whole electric industry, not only for smartphones, but, everything that requires batteries inclusive cars and even powering houses.
That qnovo better not be just marketing, if it really works, we could see some major improvements in batteries, not by much but if it is inded an improvement even only marginal, i just applaud them for that.
But what we really need is a a whole new battery invention and a safer one, safer than lithium...
Smartphones screens more and more are sporting 4k resolution, higher camera pixels, more bright light density, and all these apps which require a tremendous amound of energy. Batteries won't keep up with all these new technologies

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017Your point is wrong according to Samsung R&D boss Oh Boo-keun the S8 should still ho... moretrue. samsung can achieve better result without qnovo. again.. samsung always more superior than sony
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017yeah like xperia T3 battery explosionlol yeah. the worst thing is that sony didnt recall it. this company is unresponsible.

Its all there on their site, explained in minute detail. I dont see any reason to believe its some marketing trick, except if I choose to believe its a marketing trick.
I m quite certain their big company clients staff examine in detail all the processing and benefitials before deciding to pay up the fees for using their product.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017100% better? Can you at least attempt to be realistic?
And you mean 2.5K. Saying 2K is basica... moreThere is no need to attempt anything:
Manhatan gpx 3.1 onscreen
XZ Premium 5.5 inch running FHD achieves 41,
htc U11 5.5 inch 2k screen achieves 19...thats more than 100%
Some bigger 2k screens like s8 achieve even lower than htc u11.
Thats the difference in gaming performance.
hhmmm, 12 Sep 2017OIS is phones is worthless. fact is this phone has the smoothest video... proving EIS is superior. OIS useless?? LOL!! And actually you should see how well the Note8 does on video stabilizing in comparison.
If Sony would use OIS it would improve still photography, low light photography and video, and if combined with EIS could enhance video stabilizing.
Don't be a blind fanboy.
Tann Hauser, 13 Sep 2017Nice to see some people realize this.

And you mean 2.5K. Saying 2K is basically the same as 1080p. So you are repeating the same resolution twice, but stating them as different.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017Qnovo tech protects battery from losing capacity the same speed of regular batteries.
After... moreIf you believe in these marketing names then you'll be greatly disapointed. The technology behind (lipo-liion) only hold charge for 500 cycles, it's a hardware limitation of the battery. No miracles can be done to counter that, your battery will simply lose its full capacity overtime beginning from the first year. Expect a total of 500mah loss after 2years.
One way to counter it is charging your phone little by little, don't charge it overnight which drains your battery by a lot. charge it when you wake up.
I opted for the oneplus 5 only because of that, dash charge, in a half hour i optain 60% and it's enough to last till 6-7PM and charge it again before i go to sleep for another half hour if i drained it too much. Everything depens on how you charge and use your phone during the day.
With bezels - that in today's terms look like aircraft carrier flight decks - you are right about Sony not bothering to follow present trends.
UltimateZeroSeconds, 13 Sep 2017People watching the 4K HDR TV have a longer distance, but people watching 4K HDR in a smartpho... moreeven with closer distance 4k is still useless.
limit for human eyes is 500 ppi, unless you use it for vr.
AnonD-699988, 13 Sep 2017The same company who make exploding phone battery......yeah like xperia T3 battery explosion
AnonD-670091, 12 Sep 2017So much THIS! Reviews are biased
4K= overkill because mainstream brands dont use it
2K=best ... moreNice to see some people realize this.
XZ Premium 4k screen being adaptive only for apropriate media is the smartest choice ever...running games at 1080p and not 2k or 4k seriously enhances gaming performance, one just needs to look at graphic bench scores of sd835 devices with FHD and 2K...FHD screens, or FHD adapted screens like on XZ Premium, performing almost 100% better than those other 2K...
So no, performance wise it is actually stupid to run screens always in 2k or 4k, as it seriously affects performance of some aspects of smartphones, like low fps and stuttering in gaming and every day screen stutter and lag in 2d graphic rendering while using UI or browsing.
King of bezel champio as always.
Glad to see Sony stand it's character and not washed by the trend.
GMS Arena should've listed U11 as alternatives choice
