You should buy phone with 176 x 220 screen plus 1200 mAh battery..
Xperia Active suitable for you..
I am rocking a Sony Xperia L1 it's as good as the day it was unwrapped and faultless nothing wrong with its performance.
I may upgrade to this one as the L1 is getting on but seems silly to change it
sohail shafayat, 09 Jun 2019for any ratio, 2160p is for 4K. to be proper 4K on a 21:9 screen, it should be 2160:5040. you ... moreThis is Ultra Wide Cinema 4k. Only 21:9 video ratio is true 4k on Xperia 1. The rest of screen ratio video format will not provide 4k experience (but still higher res than other competition). But what the heck? Its a 6.5" screen device lol. - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultrawide_formats
Safe to say, it is a 4k format, on a 21:9 screen ratio.

For the people saying that Sony's optimized software is more important than battery size:
I have owned multiple Sony phones in the past and it has always been the same story.
After buying the phone, the battery life was great. Then after few Android updates, it went terrible.
Z3 Compact SoT was about 7 hours when new, then 2 years later, they messed up the updates and it went down to 4-5h SoT. Then they stopped updating it.
I finally decided to buy an outdoor phone with 1080x1920 screen and 4400 mAh and will never look back. It has no gimmicks and it's way better than all Sonys and their "optimized" software.
And yes, 4k on a phone is a gimmick, but I would understand this kind of gimmick if it was actually
3300 mAh for 4k is never enough, trust me...
Sony... The Notorious One. Love it or hate it... The truth is simple. Sony phones are still great quality and capable but not even 10% popular of that old popularity.
It's a shame, but they brought it upon themselves.
pt020, 09 Jun 2019Size of a battery is nonsense... good software will do wonders,
Sony has "Stamina mode" that ... moreI have to disagree with you size is non sense for the battery, but do agree that software together with the processor can do wonder, previous Xperia owner here very bad experience with 4k display and terrible battery life with Z5P honestly saying it's a joke and this time the result prove again from the review, 8 hours with wifi web browsing really want to say good luck with the phone.
After my Xperia Z5P exprience I conclude that anything more than 1080p is pointless for such small screen, the quality different normally noticeable for different type of the screen OLED vs LCD for example but not resolution, the screen use the most battery for any phone I hope that the manufacturer can concentrate their research on battery saving screen instead of resolution if have OLED screen that use 30% less battery that is a great break through compare to resolution I will definitely interest in that.
And second the important of battery life for the phone, what is the point if you hold a phone constantly with low battery? which you can't use it for the time you need it!! If you travel a lot this is very annoying when you need Google map your phone tell you the battery is low and the next thing is you need to do is you need to constantly carry a power bank with you which is super inconvenience, this is the reason why after Z5P I will never consider a flagship phone with bad battery, endurance lower than 100h sorry not in my list.
sohail shafayat, 09 Jun 2019for any ratio, 2160p is for 4K. to be proper 4K on a 21:9 screen, it should be 2160:5040. you ... moreYou are right and wrong at the same time. People are referring to panels as 720p and 1080p, 4K as more of a consumer slang, proper is High Definition, Full High Definition and Ultra High Definition which are only relevant to 16:9 aspect ratio (actually even that's not true cause each resolution makes adjustment to native 16:9). For example no one says 1200p for 1920 x 1200 16:10 panels, everyone says WUXGA cause it's not a mainstream consumer product like 16:9 TVs are. 4K went from film scan spec to marketing term and even film scans could varie in few tens of pixels in both width and height.
Here is the kicker for Xperia 1 and what Sony did. Ultrawide 4K resolution is 3840×1600 and it's official moniker is UW4K but as you can notice Xperia 1 extends beyond that and question is why? Answer is Sony wanted to keep native 21:9 ratio (2.33:1
to be exact and got really close with 2.34:1) in it's pure form cause 3840×1600 is considered 21:9 but technically its 240:1 which is on the very tipping side of the 21:9 spectrum. 21:9 or 7:3 is 2.33:1 but it has tolerance all the way to 240:1.
Hope this makes any kind of sense. Sony prioritized aspect ratio over standard defined resolution and 21:9(7:3) defined 4K resolution is 3840×1600 with it's official name Ultrawide 4K or UW4K.
Seem da low mp in camera make it less noise. Me personally would love sony own phone camera have more mp than rival phone who have da sony lens. And I looking around youtube and wondering how Xperia one audio and dolby atmos against da rest of da rival big boys phone.And lastly for all da bitch who complain sony phone dont have this feature or that feature. Please leave da good product for the one who can afford it.
sohail shafayat, 09 Jun 2019What if I keep complaining? I'm not complaining to You, You better stop replying. And it's not... moreIt seems you also clueless about 4K a true "4K" refers to any resolution with a horizontal pixel count of approximately 4,000 but Several different 4K resolutions have been standardized by various organizations that is why we have many standards even tough some of the "4K" standard doesn't have 4000 horizontal pixel count.
Some media outlets also have begun using the term "UW4K" (Ultra-wide 4K) for 3840 × 1600.
So there is nothing wrong if Sony calls Xperia 1 has a 4K screen because not only there are many standards used by different organizations but olso Xperia 1 uses 21:9 aspect ratio.
Doum, 09 Jun 20192160 p it's for 16:9 for any ratio, 2160p is for 4K. to be proper 4K on a 21:9 screen, it should be 2160:5040. you may see other FHD+ screens, the base 1080p is fixed, whatever the length is, 2160, 2220, 2340, etc. people say 720p, 1080p, 1440p or 2160p to define resolution, no one says the value of the length. so 1644p is not 4K. and there would have been nothing wrong to come up with a 4000mAh battery.

For Pixel peeping it's not going to be great but professionals will prefer this as they edit photos on Adobe or similar tools later anyway.
That said I think GSMA's particular test unit has some lens defect, the main camera has some sort of lens quality issue, way too much lens blur outside of the center zone.

Couldn't catch, does it stack shots? No auto hdr, some noise present, not pixel/iphone like detail...
Wonder when they will start, but probably with their new hi res sensor for sure. Still with some stacking 48mp in ultra clarity mode, stacking in 12mp should be a must. So how is it with Sony...?
