Brnre, 10 Mar 2020Superb smartphone! But I will buy Sony Xperia 1 II. I've been a Samsung user since s7 edge.Is the new Sone phone going to be good in photography segment? I was a bit dissapointed with the previous X1.
AnonD-754814, 11 Mar 2020Good luck with that terrible telephoto. And weak fast charging.

PartTimePhoner, 11 Mar 2020They cost twice so idkGo to your government's website and look for import duty list. You will find it there.

I just wanna see direct comparison between Samsung galaxy ultra vs Sony Xperia mark 2 especially in photography.
I just want to see direct comparison between Samsung galaxy s20 ultra vs Sony Xperia mark 2 especially in photography I just wonder issocell Lens vs Carl Zeiss.

But I'll let you know once ive transferred all puff the stuff from my existing phone to the S20.
They have released an update to the camera but I don't think it has fixed any of the cameras issues and certain not the auto focus issue. A reviewer mentioned that it didnt feel like they had fixed anything.

Sansung rushed the camera and didn't even care to fix the broken auto focus problem. They were totally aware of the problem but still released the phone. Every reviewer had problems with it so ofc Samsung knew it.
I was thinking of getting the S20+ as well. How do you like the cameras?
Well my old friend my S8+ is now starting to show its age and so I went to see an ultra, the ones in a couple of stores are obviously full size dummies, but I found that the ultra was too big for comfort, whereas the S20+ was on the large size but manageable in one hand.
Made my excuses and left. Got home accessed our companies employee benefits and loyalty scheme and ordered a S20+ in Blue for £898 (delivered).
It's a shame that the S20U is just too big and with its camera foibles, I just can't buy it and struggle with it. I do have a 30 day window to return the S20+ if I don't get on with it and I get a refund.
higher, 06 Mar 2020Because you suggest that ARM designs (fully or partly) Apple's CPU cores which is not true. Yo... moreFor your mongoose vs apple part.
Yes mongoose was to catch apple, which they were doing very well though Apple SoC was much better. But exynos was doing at least better than Qualcomm's ARM cortex SoC.
Samsung did it just to close the gap and you can definitely see the result of those years. I don't know since when you are following tech news but those days Qualcomm was nowhere near exynos in CPU. Yes adreno is much better than Crap Mali GPU but the truth is Apple GPU is much better than Adreno. Exynos has been bad since Exynos 9810 and Exynos 9820. And another truth is Exynos has been performing bad because of the GPU.
What you claim about Apple SoC ahead two Gen isn't true. It was true before. But not now. We will see how SD865 does compared to Apple A13. SD 865 might even do better than A13. Also I will not consider the Gaming phone's perf as they are kinda cheating.
Anyway what is Wcftech ? Never heard of it.
Read Notebookcheck or AndroidAuthority or CNET.
higher, 06 Mar 2020Because you suggest that ARM designs (fully or partly) Apple's CPU cores which is not true. Yo... moreHave you really referenced Anandtech again.
Do you realise that ARM V design is more important and more costly to develop than ARM cortex core design ?
So how is apple doing it from scratch ?
And please don't say that Apple give OLED design to Samsung to produce display for them.
People who know will laugh at you.
If Apple had a OLED desing they would have given it to LG, Sharp or BOE to produce the display. Why would the choose Samsung ? Simple logic.
Custom made means many thing.
For a simple example : Custom made bike company doesn't give you to design their bike. You tell them what parts you need and they will make it for you with their existing design.
It's possible that Apple demanded something like this...
We need display with 100%SRGB coverage, 80+RGB coverage. 600+ nits brithness , SR 5% or lower etc etc.
This might be the reason to say that on their website.
I'm not here to argue with you all say.
But trust me Apple hasn't developed any OLED yet which can be use in Smartphone and when they do their choice will definitely not be Samsung.
They have only developed a low power OLED which is good for watch or small device only. And they gave it to LG to produce display for the latest watch I guess.
AnonD-754814, 05 Mar 2020Why are you keep talking about ARM cortex ? It's core architecture(like A7, A55, A77).
I was... moreBecause you suggest that ARM designs (fully or partly) Apple's CPU cores which is not true. You seem to mix ISA with microarchitecture.
ISA (instruction set architecture) is the set of instructions supported by a processor. Typically, a bunch of processors support the same ISA. For example, x86, x86-64, ARM ISA are different ISAs.
Microarchitecture, sometimes abbreviated as µarch, is the way a given instruction set architecture (ISA), is implemented in a particular processor. A given ISA may be implemented with different microarchitectures. And that's what Apple is doing, they design (from scratch) their own microarchitectures whereas Qualcomm, Samsung, Mediatek and rest are licensing microarchitectures developed by ARM (Arm Cortex).
Take a look at the slide again I linked because that's from ARM itself eventhough it has Anandtech watermark on it and ARM says those who license the ISA only (like Apple) design their micoarhitectures from scratch.
Samsung wanted to be Apple with those Mongoose cores but unfortunately it didn't play out. They are slow and inefficient (even compared to Arm Cortex, let alone Apple).
ARM didn't manage to close any gaps with Apple's cores either because Apple's cores are around 2 years ahead of ARM's.
I guess you look up to those who read Wccftech but I recommend you read Anandtech. There's no shame in it and you might learn something in the end.
Once again Apple develops OLEDs, they mention they use custom OLEDs on their product page. What's not to believe about it? It is also confirmed by Anandtech (I know Wccftech didn't confirm it so it's not true). Let me ask again what about the LTPO backplane developed by Apple for Watch S4 and S5? Samsung recently did the same but almost a year later than Apple. How come? Did they allow Apple to use it first? :)
