A smart Shooter, 17 Mar 2019Since you reply me why don't you dare to answer my first question!? Do you watch the 4K HDR TV... moreI learn many tech news...
That's why i know 4k is useless for a tiny screen like phones, because human cannot distinguish full hd, 2k, and 4k. 4k just drains battery life.
No headphone jack? Gonna pass on it then :(
Stop quarrelling. FHD is the best, QHD and above is only for VR. So 4K with no proper VR support is a wasted tech.
Also this phone pixel is only a little higher than QHD, and its a tall phone and sony dont make VR headset for this phone. And it look like this is too tall for 3rd party VR headset. So, its only a wasted tech.

Other I wish argue with you, you should try to learn news yourself, yes technology and innovation news with your limits.

But even with 15 cm distance, human cannot distinguish full hd, 2k, or 4k.
4k is useless for phone. It is just an expensive gimmick that drains battery life.

Sure you can not do this, but you can watching the 4K HDR phone as close as 15cm, the closer viewing distance is a great opportunity to help you see the 4K HDR contents on a phone and more it is a mobile device so you can experience the benefits of unrestrained.

You can't see from a conventional not 4K phone, you must see the real 4K HDR phone.

I can see ... moreThere is a consensus about this man, it not about seeing the pixels its about seeing a difference, also its not possible to see pixels from normal holding position of a phone or do you hold the phone against your eyes when using the phone, try again :D
normal holding position is like 35cm from the eye, its impossible to see pixels from that distance. You can compare it to watching TV, from that distance you cant see pixels on a TV, but you can see the difference on such big screen between 1080p and 4K, but not on a phone.
Don't go in to the extreme with your examples, with the right tools you can even see pixels on a 5inch 8K screen.

I have multiple smartphones at home with over 500 PPI. I can see pixels on all of them. By the way, there are rumours about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 beeing 4K. 4K is the future. I remember back when 1080p was introduced, many people said you would not be able to see any difference to 720p. Now 4K has 4 times sharper detail than 1080p. It is always the same story.
Alien , 16 Mar 2019What's the purpose of taking 4K photos and videos if you can't view them on the device you're ... moreYes, that's the only way to make advantage of 4K videos. Some people want to edit there videos professionally or they make family video's to be able to watch on a big screen later in the years. I still have videos from years ago (full HD), its nice to be able to watch good quality after 20 years for example or show it to your kids.
Otherwise its of no use to make video's with your 6.5 inch screen, you just cant see the difference between QHD, FullHD+ and 4K on a 6.5 inch screen, because of the limit of the eye.
Simply try it with your current phone, try to change resolution.
Everything is ok.
But 167mm?????????? To long. Is this mobile?
Need 1 more size variant which will be Xperia 1s (6inc screen and body will be under 150mm x 70mm x 7.8mm )
SONY Please do and let's see what happens.

Don't tell me you prefer taking the video, then connecting with the cable to the PC or TV to view it.
Since smartphones have better processors, gpus and displays, I barely turn on the PC, while the TV is on just to play classical music to my pets :)
SMARTphones already started replacing our PCs. This is another great improvement that will soon be followed by all brands.
