The phone is awesome. But the problem with Sony is that it's no longer availible at the carriers in my country (Slovenia). Only retail. One carrier (A1) is selling old Xperia phones like the XA, XA1, XA2, XZ, XZ1, XZ2, Z5 Premium, XZ Premium and the XZ3 for change.
Sadly, I can't afford a phone that costs 800Â€, so I'm gonna probably buy the S10e for about 350Â€ from a carrier deal.

Too many thing bothering me with Samsung to try them out to be honest, especially their image processing and UI.
Being a fan is just limiting consumers, nothing good siding for a Brand.

Oled is different, oled is like just spot next to another. a lot of small spots of light need less power each to produce the same brightness than less and bigger spot.
Plus, look at my previous comment, monitor power drain is far more complex that just the panel drain. That's why some LCD 4k screen consume less than 2k, sometimes, and sometimes not and the gap is not that big.
Anyway, in fact, we don't really care, if the phone last as long as a FHD screen while it has a 4k screen, that's the only thing we need to know. Mine does 20% less than a mate 10 pro that has a 30% bigger battery. So no issue with the Xperia 1 so far. Especially comparing to some other $1500+ phone.
Exyvia, 19 Sep 2019Especially when they're willingly ignorant to the fact.
Can't even google search of the wat... moreHere you have 2 monitors of the same size, with somewhat the same technology (here 144Hz, freesync, IPS) you have only 10% power difference here between a 2k and a 4k screen (that is 4 time more pixel):
and here is a 2k monitor that drain 15% more energy than the 4k, without the 144Hz, nor any adaptative sync: https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews...ips-zero-g.htm So it only depend of the quality of the pannel, and for monitor, of all the bonus you add in the software, internal chipset etc.
And as stated in the quora link, lcd works differently due to it's technologie, and in this case, it's perfectly understandable that a 4k screen would consume slightly more. But for Oled, the power drain could be completely the same.
The only good thing about this phone is XZ1 Compact should be much cheaper now. No 3.5mm headphone jack and weird unnecessarily long aspect ratio.
Kudos for them anyway for the efforts.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2019Your link did not give the wattage.ELI5: You got (2x2) 4 people arranged in a square, you need to tell everyone individually what colour shirt to wear. So you walk up to everyone one by one telling them what colour.
Now if you got 4x4 square, 16 people, it takes more energy to tell everyone. That's basically how a monitor works.
Quick google got me two 27 inch monitors, 4K and QHD. Both with 300 nitts of brightness and IPS panel type.
TL;DR 4k panel with 36W typical and 2k with 30W
Another phone that is insanely expensive vs the competition. No innovation just a copy and paste job of an older phone to confuse the buyers.
A manufacturer that provides the industry with camera sensors has a poor DXO rating and over processes their images.
Sony still playing catchup but being left behind.
"The not so great bit is that the 5 didn't manage to build on the 1's decent but uninspiring performance with headphones. Some intermodulation distortion crept in, the stereo crosstalk rose more than average and the volume went down to below average too. Good enough for most people overall, but not great for a flagship."
This explains why 3.5mm jack is SUPERIOR compared to USB-C to 3.5mm dongle. Come on Sony, for that price, there is more than enough space for the 3.5mm jack!!

Currently I'm using Xperia 1 and love it. Very smooth with high quality build quality, the screen is so good..
Even though i don't use Sony phones anymore, i'm still sad to see them stubbornly launching phones that don't meet their fans expectations.

Does not matter the resolution apps run, you still have 4x more pixels being used.
VectorR, 19 Sep 2019There is a logical explanation for this. Sony don't want Xperia phones compete with their own ... moreCellphones cannot compete against cameras.
Photo from a compact RX100 are 20x better than any cellphone.
Clarification from Sony regarding image sensor: It does not have 960fps but it does indeed have predictive capture.
To do so sensor must be stacked but it has less overall buffer memory.
