Shanti Dope, 19 Apr 2020First batch will be released in Japan in less than 15 days from now.
Being released later on ... moreS20 Ultra was supposed to be the best phone right now.
It is the worst above $900.
Theory does not apply.
Fearghast, 19 Apr 2020Xperia 1 II is not even out yet. It will have its chance to fail later. It may fail in some, but it certainly won't be as bad as having green tint, 120Hz that only works in FHD+, European versions being superior to the version that the rest of the world could get, and definitely no camera focusing issues.
Being able to use the best wired headphones (that's miles better than any wireless headsets in pure quality) while charging the phone through a cable and playing PUBG Mobile is certainly what the Xperia 1 Mk II can do. I'm eagered to see your S20 Ultra to do that.
Availability , software periodic updates and pramotions are disaster for LG so far except at the time of G6 but compititor offered better specs and since then LG never recovered.
Still Wait for handset launch with good scheme in India .
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020They cant recommend a phone that is not for sale yet, and wont be in the next 30 days. First batch will be released in Japan in less than 15 days from now.
Being released later on doesn't change the fact that it is a much better device overall, in terms of being full package.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020You are totally right, the new Xperia mark 2 and this LG both have flat screens which is more ... moreThat's what pure marketing and ignorance can do to people.
If only everyone is as good in choosing the best phones as they are when choosing their best outfits.
Anyway, it's their money, so no need to mind about them.
Though I need to add that it is also possible that they improved the Quad Bayer demosaicing algorithms. The 64 megapixel images are not perfectly sharp.
It seems that LG doesn't use a Quad Bayer sensor! This might be the second high resolution Bayer sensor since the Lumia 1020! Quad Bayer 64 megapixel sensors have a resolution of 64.0 megapixels. This one has exactly(!) the same resolution as the 64.1 megapixel Bayer(!) sensor of the Galaxy S20. Bayer sensors capture much more detail than Quad Bayer sensor, therefore LG and Samsung don't need a dedicated 2x tele camera, if the lens is sharp and if there isn't too much noise reduction.
So LG's statement that 0.8 micrometer pixels are combined to 1.6 micrometer pixels is related to downsampling (software) whereas usually this is related to reading four pixels out together (hardware).
I got the LG v60 2 weeks ago. I had an lgv40. So far so good. Battery lasts all day and then some.
Im big on movies and music and this phone does both well. The quad dac is no joke. . I was weary about the 1080 display. But it is crisp. In screen fingerprint scanner is good and works even with tempered glass protector. (Just install your protector first then calibrate finger) I stick with LG because they are in a market where they have to do it right and they always deliver. Just wish they would make a smartwatch again. Still waiting on my dual screen case from LG. Wish they would of just included it with every phone.
Video compare tool? ISO12233 in8k, in4k?
Bla-bla-bla not needed.

You didn't even have to type more words, that alone explains everything.
Wow, the industry needs a good boot up the pants, the data rates on the videos are pathetic
What happened to 8k at 30/25/24 fps, standards frame rates, not 26fps.
You need to use videos with random movement, at least a 360 degree quick pan with complex detail, like bushes, to show how these low bit rate video modes easily break down. To put the industry of the spot, to advocate for better camera performance. A static shot does not tax the camera much, even a 4mb/s could handle that.
Have a try of vizzywig and filmic pro advanced editions, to see if their advanced modes can get a lot more datarate?
Fearghast, 19 Apr 2020If you did like Creative Labs' X-Fi DAC/Amp compared to LG output, I belive there is something... moreAudioQuest DragonFly's are uter garbage! LG's implementation of ESS Sabre32 90xxK2M DAC's is a by far best one up to date ever seen in anything portable. Even QC standard DAC found in the SoC goes much higher (SINAD) than same ones in other phone's. There are some portable USB CS43131 DAC implementations which come very close so far & for a bargain price of 45$. Creative actually still does a decently good job regarding their audio hardware but followed by quirky drivers as always. What LG did & it's terrible is limiting output loudness (mW) in EU and US firmwares for low impedance EMI's so there's little benefit of a great DAC implementation when you can not Amp it.
I do not understand this focus on dual screen by the sites.
It does same of old devices like Sony Tab P and Zte Axon M.

Shanti Dope, 19 Apr 2020Honestly disappointed not to see the Xperia 1 Mk II in the alternatives. It's seriously the on... moreYou are totally right, the new Xperia mark 2 and this LG both have flat screens which is more easy to use, better cameras than overhyped S20 series, both has headphone jack, Sony always great audio even with front facing stereo setups and LG with Quad DAC, which S20 doesn't have. Sony and LG have great battery optimisation and LG even has dual screen and lower price.
Samsung is objectively loser here but still will sell more, probably.
I do not think OP8 Pro, S20+ and Find X2 are rivals of this.
It is rival for Mi10, OP8 and P40 and future iphone 12. Second tier flagships.
I was expecting at least 110h. Many midranges with 1080p and this huge battery would easily score that high. The 7nm is supposed to do better than SD6xx and 7xx .
8K24p of 47Mbps is ridiculous. Samsung uses 80 and is too low for 8K.
Unless the reviewer has 8K screen, pointless to make any judgement about quality.
Honestly disappointed not to see the Xperia 1 Mk II in the alternatives. It's seriously the only one that rivals this phone in terms of pure versatility and competitiveness.
I don't even understand why that horrible bulky thing with overheating chipset, "disastrous focus" camera, and mediocre endurance rating for a 5000mAh battery phone, has made it into consideration, but not this ABSOLUTELY no-compromise flagship.
Oh right, because it is a popular phone!
Sorry my bad. I forgot I'm in the place where people fall easily on heavy marketing strategies....
No studio shots for comparison with other phones?
