Android Master, 30 May 2020Professionals rely on professional cameras for their 4K60 footage not tiny smartphone sensors.... moreRight, that's why I don't need 4k60, especially at low bitrate the smartphones produce it at.
Then maybe you will explain to us why 4k60 is such a NECESSARY FEATURE and how valuable it is to us, and why?
Maybe show us some cool videos you couldn't have made without 4k60, and we'll judge.
Otherwise you'll have to admit 4k60 capture on smarphones is a gimmick just made for the checkbox competition of a "i got more features" kind
as of me 4k60 on smartphones is a gimmich
[deleted post]I don't really think so. It's a pretty good phone, let down by high price and bad marketing. As said by MrWhoseTheBoss (he said that Sony's rep went down thanks to its bad marketing and model naming scheme).

you can go to xda or other forums and ask anyone about their battery life. z5 premium was not bad, that's my point, and with it's 4th generation of 4k smartphones, some people still believe 4k is a battery hog.

I'll give you another chance to correct your lies.
Coz even the Z5 compact with 720p display had terrible battery life.
Z5 Premium with 4k display had even worse battery.
Culprit was the SD810 chip which was a throttling mess that plagued all flagships that year sporting the 810 chip.

why does this review feels like someone who hate sony to the core wrote it. sony abondoned the market hyped 48, 64 and 108mp sensors and went for the much better 12mp 1/1.7 sensor with fastest readout speed with better lens and the best autofocus they could provide. 108mp sensor on s20 ultra or any other phone cannot even give a good autofocus or better results. they don't have better lens for that matter. this phone camera is how the smartphone flagship camera hardware should be. not that 108mp sensor that shoots useless 8k at mediocre below 80 mbps bitrate.
you completely abandoned the fact that this phone can shoot 20 stills per second with autofocus and auto exposure.
and about that 70% autofocus coverage area in sensor. i don't know exactly what you didn't understand from that. have you even used any alpha cameras? dualpixel autofocus enabled sensor doesn't provide 100% coverage because of manufacturing and technical limitations. 70% coverage is still an impressive feature.
i am sorry, i have read so many critical reviews about chinese brands deviating from the vanilla android experience but then a company actually gives that experience you suddenly ignore all the benefits.
WHY sharing SD and second SIM on a $1200 device that otherwise can be taken into account as my favorite?

as far as i know, professionals use 4k60 to produce a buttery 24fps footage, and they usually shoot in hybrid gamma, to manually color grade the video.
otherwise it's a gimmick because there's no real value in 4k60 videos of how your kids eat sandwiches or dog jumps around the lawn
The phone and its specs looks great. However, it is too tall for me and the forehead and chin makes it look dated.
I dont know why its becoming a trend, if they want the phone to be used with one hand, why would they want to make it taller just to get a 'bigger' screen size. Apps and videos look weird with black stripes in both sides. I want my video to fill up the whole screen.

These reviews are just based on few days with the device but as a user I want my phone to last and be a good quality the Samsung phones had amazing reviews but those phones had so many issues even before the phone ran out of warranty period the battery was bad, the software was bad... Whereas I still have an xperia that runs good even now 5 years later and another one I'm using right now for 2 years and it has taken heavy beatings but still works fine

you seem to not be aware that modems are the most energy-hungry parts of modern chipsets, and the resolution doesn't matter at all since 98% of the graphics on smartphones are in vector, not raster, unless we're talking about the videogames.
trust me i'm a java developer - you want to use SVG instead of PNG to keep the app smaller and make it work faster

It took them around 6 months to rectify that. All those phones were out on the market at the time so you can actually buy them from a store and use them they were security features and you're complaining about a phone that's still in pre-order and having testing software at least they try to release the product after testing
