TimApple, 20 Apr 2020Nah, they're perfectly fine provided you get a decent pair that supports aptX. People who have... moreYou just want to sell dongles lul. Instead of people using their years-old headsets that still work.
And who are you to just dictate who can say this and that wrt to opinions.
Take your BS to gatekeeping lul.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2020How about:
No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
No trolling - del... moreBashing and criticizing are exactly two different things.
I'm doing the latter because for real, there are true evidences that back up my claim. In contrast, all that you're trying to do is bashing because you don't even have any scientific data or experiment to prove such claims, so it's pretty pointless to even argue with people like you. Be glad I'm not doing anything much this quarantine so I'm wasting my time explaining basic things to you. The fact that my comments even bothers you so much makes me a happy entertainer for knowledge for myself.
Trolling is everywhere. Not all trolls are blocked by GSMArena, but I'm certainly not trolling at all. Again, how can it be like that when everything that I'm saying is actually backed up by countless facts based on real life testings and real users' experiences?
Maybe it's you who's trolling. You were saying something that absolutely makes no sense right from the start, but also gettin' mad when I speak real stuff.
Why would I be guilty of those things? Don't call me wrong doings that you're doing yourself. You put light on me for being a troll in order to put attention to me because apparently it's you who's trolling.
I've pretty much said many things similarly on this page, and there were people who responded much nicer and more intellectually and sensibly than you're doing. Bring back those people so I can actually have a meaningful discussion and not waste time to trolls like you.
Ofcourse the Xperia 1 Mk II isn't out yet, but I'm solely depending on the specsheet alone, but given Sony's track record of making smartphones, there's absolutely no doubt this new one would also be a brilliant device that's closest to perfection, as far as quality and versatility goes.
Well again, why am I saying this again? You wouldn't listen and get it anyway, so good luck trying to find the attention that you've been needing badly in your whole life.
dazed1, 20 Apr 2020phones with 21:9 format should burn in hell, boycott, they can keep profiting on sheeps while ... moreI'm sure as hell there are far more contents made in native 21:9 than there is for screens with cutouts.
Anyway, the slim form factor of 21:9 allows it to be held easily with one hand.
If you're not happy, then move the f- on.
I also hate your nonsense screen cutout, but I never wished nor asked for it to burn in hell, so yeah, just shut up.
Robert, 20 Apr 2020Hi, does this phone has IR blaster, like the other LG phones?Sorry. Now LG and Samsung doesn't give IR Blaster for cost cutting and makes us believe it's an obsolete tech. But Xiaomi and Huawei still believe it's relevant even at 2020.
Garebear, 20 Apr 2020No, bud, the reason a lot of people refuse to give up the headphone jack isn't just quality. B... moreNah, they're perfectly fine provided you get a decent pair that supports aptX. People who have never used true wireless headphones shouldn't be allowed to make comments about them. 3.5mm has no place on a modern phone, it's a waste of precious space that's better used for haptics of battery. 3.5mm on a desktop or notebook computer is perfectly fine where space is apt but not on mobile. Not to mention that it's extremely redundant given that USB-C audio passthrough exists - just get a passive adapter and you still have the same quality on your wired headphones.
3.5mm is gone and good riddance.
Dont get LG phones!!! I muself have one. Phones are great maybe for the 1st 6 months of buying coz after that you fall way back in the software segment. I have got the Vseries and though android 9.0 came out 2 years ago, I still haven't seen the light of it yet. Pathetic customer service who keeps on blaming 3rd parties for the delay in bringing it out, when all other vendors have moved on to android 10.0. They touted some unknown global software development centre which is all a gimmick.
No wonder they continue to post losses in their mobile segment as people who already own a LG phone will never order another one or recommend to another.
SO STAY AWAY GROM LG PHONES
No, bud, the reason a lot of people refuse to give up the headphone jack isn't just quality. Buds are annoying to deal with, the quality does suck, and there's tons of latency so you can't play games very well on the phone with audio seconds behind.
Bluetooth and AAC suck, that's why we stay to the jack.
I'll not be long and try to make it short...As years of using iPhone and then switching to Android... I had great experiences with old LGs and specially OnePlus (but to be honest camera set up was always more or less a miss). Now that Huawei has ban from Google (also HONOR = best value performer), I'm happy to see LG is back. This phone gives you most important features FIRST. Great battery, Solid screen (and best is that IT'S FLATT), great overall audio experience, best processor and it's not overpriced. So as I'm from EU and I use a lot Google services and I don't like other generic Chinese products (XIAOMI, VIVO, OPPO,...and as I said OnePlus lost me when turned back to loyal comunity!!!), I'm left to either LG or Sammy. But Samsung cheats Europeans with it's own EXYNOS instead of Qualcom's BEST!?!?!?! In my opinion I was first shocked when LG left out some of features, but then after a while, they did BEST compromise and deserve to BE BACK. LG just PLEASE improve your UPDATE policy AND I'm absolutely sure you'll surpass competitors (only decent is left of Google = HUAWEI / HONOR).
Hi, does this phone has IR blaster, like the other LG phones?
Shanti Dope, 20 Apr 2020I feel sorry for you much more.
You're literally defending a clearly failing product and try ... more"The whole world besides Europe will be getting Exynos version, so that's the variant that most people have access to"
You are really clueless. You can't even fact check in your fanboy rage ...
Europe gets the Exynos ... Exynos is worse version .... it suffers most of the issues ... do I have to continue?
Only regions like NA get the better Snapdragon version ... where do you think (If you are even capable of such a concept) petition originated?
At least read it, sign it if you agree like I did --- and breathe ... read ... understand.
... but to repeat my point. Samsung S20 series not that good != make Sony phones better.
Every device is unique and has unique bugs and broken features ... Xperia 1 II was even delayed to June ... guess what they are fixing.
Shanti Dope, 20 Apr 2020This is a comment section, so obviously anything is accepted for as long as it doesn't violate... moreHow about:
No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
No trolling - deliberately antagonizing other brand/model users
Don't tell me you are not guilty of these. And Xperia I II is not even out yet. On paper it looks good but how do you know that it will perform well in real life?
Why did they removed QHD+ resolution on this phone??
I don't underestand, this phone got everything but not the quad hd resolution which is essential for a flagship... Disappointed
Wondering how’s gsmarena doing brightness measurement since s20 ultra only reach 731 nits in auto brightness.
Shanti Dope, 19 Apr 2020Honestly disappointed not to see the Xperia 1 Mk II in the alternatives. It's seriously the on... morephones with 21:9 format should burn in hell, boycott, they can keep profiting on sheeps while providing tiny screens as much as they like, not for me. Go and see how much bigger the S10 plus screen is with 6.4'' vs the 21:9 BS in the MKii, DON'T look at the diagonal, look at the surface area!
YUKI93, 19 Apr 2020It's not out for sale to the public yet, so we have to wait for the Xperia 1 ii to be official... moreYeah I know. But what I'm just saying is that it deserves to be mentioned as the best alternative for the V60 ThinQ in terms of pure versatility, which is one of the absolutely no-compromise flagship phone of early 2020. Heck, it can satisfy more fans with its no-cutout display and proper cinemawide aspect ratio, which is perfect for watching most Netflix movies on the go.
Fearghast, 19 Apr 2020TBH I feel sorry for you.

You're literally defending a clearly failing product and try to salvage its laughable and inexcusable faults even at such price. Blind fanboyism is one thing, but yours is next level that I can't even call it ignorance anymore, because it's far worse than that.
You really need some help now before it's too late.
It was the worst? What's your basis? Or is it just another made-up nonsense to try and look like you actually know something? Either way, that's still far from reality, because while Sony phones have never had the best audio output in the business, it was never one of the worst, NOT even close by any means. Well at least for now, what matters is that they've made the bold decision to bring it back while Samsung decided to abandon it completely, so if you say Samsung is still better in that aspect, you really need to get slapped real hard already.
Of course I said the Xperia 1 Mk II wouldn't be everyone's choice, that's why I said it may not be as good as many other phones in some aspects, but even with such compromises, it definitely would never be as bad as the S20 Ultra, which I don't even freakin' know at what aspect it's actually good at. Even the cameras aren't the best in the business, as I have used them by myself in a Samsung store and I've seen many other phones perform far better.
Exactly what did I say that weren't right?
Green tint problems do exist.
Exynos 990 is a really bad chipset.
Camera focusing problems still exists (only improved by software, NOT FIXED FFS).
Battery life is really disappointing for a phone with such battery capacity.
Those things I've mentioned are pretty much based on real life testings performed by real owners who have personally used the phone as their daily driver. You'd think I'd believe you more than real people that actually own the phone? In fact, I don't even know who the hell are you, and you just come around replying nonsense to me in attempts to defend your lousy product that even Samsung themselves are probably being ashamed of already.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020This is an LG thread. Who cares about your Sony fanboyism and Samsung prejudice?This is a comment section, so obviously anything is accepted for as long as it doesn't violate any posting rule.
I didn't even ask for your nonsense opinion anyway, so who cares about you?
