Its a great phone, only downside for me is how quickly the glass coating wore down, I got a finger blotch after two weeks

This is very useful for life time photography example when capture photo the people winking and closed eye or not the nice one but with Eye tracking AF AE will capture the every nice shot with burst and the Xperia 5 even come with advanced rectify 3 times for each of the photos, if you want to get a jumping photography it will be impressive each "continues" photos from the burst shot are AF AE and the people is focused.
Those competitors just want comsumer buy their "infinity" screen but with a lot compromise, example like notch/waterdrop/punch hole, waterfall screen/curved edge. For the implement of UD fingerprint it is complicated to the display but doesn't better than side mounted fingerprint reader. For the elevator front camera it also complicated for the module and lack water-resistant... A bunch of compromising...and impractical.
sony just does not understand why its phones don't sell very well (like samsung or chinese brands).
If only this phone had 3.5 mm jack and bezel-less screen and a bit more battery, then it would be perfect.
what sony makes as a result: let's make it longer but narrower and call this innovation.
sorry sony, if you go this way you will end up being another nokia.
I would make some interaction with playstation background if I were the ceo of Sony.
also always listen to the customers.

I'll probably buy this phone of all phone out of release right now, I'm an anime lover the screen specs is the best out there on market. Correct me if I'm wrong if you screenshot your screen the size would the size of screen and this screen is perfect.

I'm currently use Xperia 1 as my daily driver, but honestly, the 4K screen is a bit too much. I would prefer 90Hz 1440p screen, but in 21:9 aspect ratio. I personally like this aspect ratio (yeah I needed a lot of getting used to at the beginning)
santosh, 09 Sep 20194k panel cost more than 90 hrzt refresh rate mind it before compareRemember this phone has 1644p 4K screen, not 2160p 4K screen, so it only has a little higher pixel compared to One plus 7pro 1440p. While one plus has curved screen that costier to produce and also 90hz screen, there is also underdisplay fps. So one plus is way more advanced.

Ma, 09 Sep 2019I have exactly same case and same question It is advised to change brands because if you only use 1 brand, you will become a narrow minded fan boy. I used nokia, sony-ericsson, htc, samsung, sony, iphone and xiaomi. My next phone will be oneplus after I sold my xperia 1.
