A smart Shooter, 09 May 2019AI side sense is much better and intuitive without remember some of the gesture, AI side sense... moreI have no comments about Sony Side Sense as never use it. But most of the reviewer they accidentally open it a lot by mistouch, and immediately turn off that feature.
What so hard about gesture navigation? Its a 3 steps only. Edge swipe to left to go back if your right handed (swipe right if left handed), swipe from bottom to home, swipe from bottom & hold for recent task. Thats it. I master it less than five minutes on Mate 20. Definitely not going back to old school 3 dot navigation. Suddenly my big Mate 20 doesnt feel so big after that one-handed gesture used.
Thats why Android will ditch the Pill Gesture, its kind of useless when u still have back button & has to stretch your hand to tap it if the phone big or taller ratio, kills the one handed usage. When Sony follows, i know suddenly u'll love it.
And i'm always keeps my mind busy, life as an Architect by the way.

It also can turn off or makes two sides edge work with it. Android's Gesture should have a choice to turn off or edit the settings, it get benefits if doesn't need too much gesture to remember, probably less than 5 gesture are my recommendation. If 10 gestures setup it makes mind busy.

Why did they move the camera down like that? Having the lens at the edge (as in the older models) is a great feature to get pictures in tight spaces (have you ever tried to use you camera to look under furniture, for instance).

I really wonder. Mi9 has 3300mah and no one complain and it has Endurance rating 95h. Why so many complains on Xperia 1 about battery life.
Curse you Sony!! Why do you take such a long time to release this phone? People all over the world are eagerly waiting for it and there is not a single news from the company regarding exact date of release. Come on!!! At least just give us a date so that we can plan whether to wait or jump to another brand.
A smart Shooter, 08 May 2019Those competitor's HDR tend to shift the color, it isn't the good HDR because it shift the col... moreAs i numerously explain before, base on my own experience, theres no way Mate 20 & P30 series oversaturate the colors. In fact, they are the most muted/natural colors on a flagship phone nowadays. Gone are the days oversaturate image like last P20 Pro. XZ2 Premium & XZ3, S10, Pixel 3 are more saturated than Huawei does now. Contrast on Huawei are higher (not as Pixel does with crushed shadows), but maintain without white clippings & retains highlights. I'll take the dramatic image than the dull result as Xperia does. Been use to Sony & Huawei, i'll lean more onto Huawei's Leica imaging. Again, to each his own. And i always send as document in Whatsapp if got good quality image with no compression going on.
Yup Sony Engineer said about the HDR improvement, but i would not believe it until final results emerge (dissapoint by their mouthtalking & ad before).
While on the other news, Android Q will ditch the Pill gesture & replace it with full screen gesture navigation, just as Huawei does now. Means that Sony will follow suit with their Android Q device. Seems like they agree that big phone or tall ratio phone works best using gesture navigation, when u said otherwise. I know u'll love it when Sony implement that gesture.
I can't wait to see Xperia 1 Pro.
Please sony release it faster
After doing a lot of stalking on this phone and digging on Internet it seems to be available 17th of may.

Hop... moreThose competitor's HDR tend to shift the color, it isn't the good HDR because it shift the color like 'avatar' especially the AI camera from Huawei. I have see many sample from Huawei recent phone, their AI color algorithm is far from natural! The true to real life photo should not have oversaturate color and over processing highly contrast, it makes the image looks over-processing, while the over-sharpening is a bit hit or miss, I see the image is very sharp in WhatsApp. WhatsApp, the app always scale down the image and tend to lost some of the sharpness, so Slightly added sharpness maybe should be fine.
Sony camera software engineer say the real HDR should keep the same EV and retain the more details/texture, I can found the sunlight/spotlight area have retain more details and actual colors in day and night scene and it doesn't lost the detail or shift color like those competitor.
AlexP, 07 May 2019I'm my opinion P30 isn't enough for me to be a flagship. And the camera is not the same as P30... moreOf course its not the same camera, therefore the cheaper price. At least its the same camera hardware as last Mate 20 Pro, with more advance RYYB sensor.
The duo Mate 20 is flagship, duo P30 is flagship, trio S10 & Iphone Xs (R) is flagship. P30 lite is the mid ranger of P30 series. Honor top end will always cheaper than vanilla P & Mate series, share some high end items, therefore called as 'flagship killer', a direct competitor to Oneplus.

AlexP, 07 May 2019P30 is not flagship. P30 pro maybe isBoth P30 & P30 Pro are flagship. P30 just a tone down on the Pro version. Both are flagship in terms of performance & camera. Pretty much like Mate 20 & Mate 20 Pro, Galaxy S10+, S10, S10e.
They are definitely not a mid ranger phone.

Xperia 1 brings HDR improvement when other competitors already done it for years. Hopefully a lot of Auto HDR triggered on a selected scene, especially low lights, so it can looks 'Avatar' world when u describe about other excellent device.
That scene on P30 video? Yeah a bit overblown on the background as its focus on the foreground. Not being a nitpicky, but overall results is still great & flagship worthy.
Theres a Honor 20 Pro leaks just now, which has Sony IMX586 with OIS, 48mp 1/2.0" sensor size, 1.75 micron pixel size on pixel binning 12mp. That hardware alone a lot better than Xperia 1 smaller 1/2.6" sensor size, measly 1.4 micron pixel size. Software a different story though, cant wait for both results. - https://m.gsmarena.com/newscomm-36926.php
Alexande, 06 May 2019Iphone xs max, xs,xr and razer phone have 120hz and asus rog phone, nubia red magic 3 have 90 ... moreIpad has 120Hz, iphones do not.
Almost all Xperia from X series have 120Hz as long they have at least 1080p screen.
So, even XA2 has 120Hz.
But is disabled by kernel, because it spends more battery.
XZ2 Premium uses 144Hz WRGB LCD ( Xperia P was first WRGB screen).
[deleted post]I've used both of them. Both are great in their own ways.

I dont know about oleds max refresh rates, but some kind of hz upgrade for gaming will definitely be in the Game Enhancer app of Xperia 1.
I am still an lcd fan here.
