The streaming quality is being restored in some parts of Europe . It would have been nice of GSMArena had they mentioned this issue in the review too!
Weduz97, 31 May 2020I think you never use sony,
Small battery expect less battery life, but my Sony XZ can last ... morePeople are blinded by the large mAH numbers. What they don't understand is Lithium is Lithium and the only way to even out a long lasting lithium battery is by giving it proper optimizations in the form of reliable input power watt and proper heat dissipation.
Sony uses Qnovo tech on their smartphones. It optimizes the battery very efficiently. I'd prefer implementation of this tech over fast charge and fat numbers any day.
Gilvanio, 31 May 2020Is it something cultural,toxic or viral...talk about sony ????It's about lack of appreciation for quality technological improvements by our far-east brothers.
4K actually also improves the Hdr in dark colors such as shadows. That's why one can see a difference in color richness of the 4K over the 1440p screen.
Why settle for good enough when u can have the best

That's weird, those haters still saying they can't compare 1080 & 2K & 4K display, suddenly they can compare upscale 4K & native 4K on display, but when it is come to 8K video/l and it 8K TV on Samsung they just praising like flawless, they are really double standard.
Thanks for the review, any chance of uploading samples to the photo comparison tool?
Phones fan, 01 Jun 2020So you liked the phone because no dead pixels!?!!, as if dead pixels is a thing we see every d... moreYes, one of the reason, i like this phone.
Yes, you can see dead pixels ( eyedrop, eyehole, notch, ... ).
Yes, i know u can hide those bye turning off the top screen. ( Smaller screen with top bezell... meh its just ugly ).
I don't like those things, this phone don't have them. Haha, calling me sony fan...eh, it's just my opinion.

Anonymous, 01 Jun 2020So, how come no really great video phones out there? Filmic Pro app, only goes so far. Even ... moresony and lg are virtually the only 2 brands which makes phones that allow for 10bit footage along with manual exposure settings in 3rd party videocamera apps. Samsung, Huawei, even iPhone has no idea what 10-bit footage looks like.
mcpro24fps is another contender to Filmic, allowing the 10-bit footage to be shot in log/hlog/slog.
So, how come no really great video phones out there? Filmic Pro app, only goes so far. Even $20 phone could be a reasonable camera phone. It's mainly allowing the software to do everything right, and a nice buttons, sensor and lens. Those last two are out there since the first 4k galaxy note.
Come on you companies, drop the pretence, give us pro video camera mode with full control, visually lossless data rate 4:2:2+/Bayer 12 bit+ 16 stop? Even if only by external drive? When we go to someone's wedding we want descent footage.
Mori, 31 May 2020Superb unique phone, awesome design, super cam specs and what i love the most is proper screen... moreSo you liked the phone because no dead pixels!?!!, as if dead pixels is a thing we see every day.
I used phones, tablets, laptops from different brands through out the years and i have never seen a dead pixel.
If gsmarena did not reveiw a new phone soon, the comments here will reach 1k+ easily, Sony fanboys logic is something extraordinary.
anyway I wish this phone could bring Sony back to the game.

where there are
So vertically there's red, green and blue in each line, but horizontally there's twice less of the blue and red.
But even then we get a problem.
1920*1080 on an IPS = 2,073,600 RGB pixels
1440*3200 in reality is 1440*1600 (or 720*3200)=2,304,000 RGB pixels
1644*3840 in reality is 1644*1920 (or 822*3840)=3,156,480 RGB pixels
1440*2560 on an IPS = 3,686,400
so Samsung's OLED hardly surpassed real FullHD pixel count and Sony's 4k OLED hardly reaches real QHD pixel count
And people blame Sony for 4k as if it was the battery hog.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2020To go any other sony post and will find the haters saying it is just 12. What other imaginary Sony post? This has 400+ comments and none complains about the 12 MP sensor. The other "in for review" article has 300+ comments and I don't remember seeing any complaints too. Main complaints were 4K and lack of 120 Hz.
A rather good improvement compared to last year's flagship, but still not good enough for the price. Low light still isn't the best, and that selfie cam without AF... what were they thinking?
I love sony but I hope they'd just scrap their mobile business already and focus what they're really good at aka Playstation, TVs, audio hardware, and camera modules.
Anonymous, 31 May 2020But will drop to 70-80%.
Which is ridiculous. Now that is ridiculous. Mate 20 Pro 40w SuperCharge to this date still got near to none battery degradation, since launch.
Keep on believing on those myth.
shame no review for the audio capabilty, sony's audio engineers tweaked this xperia, even commented maybe in future, a full walkman audiophile grade phone could be produced, maybe then i will consider going back to sony
