Worsening the situation that 4K divided into morr, like 4K 3840 and 4K UHD as one of the most popular one. Besides, Sony said it "4K" not UHD, like the others said over and over. Unlike HD, FHD and QHD, 4K wasn't never has exact proper standard, therefore any manufacturers will set their own 4K (with Sony choosing 3840x2160p for 16:9 contents and 3840x1644p for 21:9 contents). But one thing is sure, 4K can be applied to a screen or content that meet the 3840 minimum, not 2160. Remember, this is only to do with the screen ratio adjustment and capabilities of the chipset (S865 only capable displaying of 3840x2160 at 60Hz, same one from Snapdragon 810, so if by your logic of 2160 is the one should be accounted, then it will be 5040x2160 (5K), which no chipset are capable, even S865, and 5K are highly uncommon)
This only discussing the 4K thing, a new standard milestone from 5-6 years ago, we haven't reach the 8K, which's gonna be more complicated, as 8K just getting started... You should give Qualcomm a suggestion mail to upgrade the capabilities to display 8K, so your wishes of your persistence of "2160" in 4K granted, so Sony could go to 5040x2160 in Xperia 1 Mark III... -_-

Cant you understand that?
Youtube app does not allow the device to play the video with resolution above what screen has. Otherwise any QHD phone would show option to set 4K like Xperia. But they do not.
If 3840 x 1600 is considered one kind of 4K, how cant you still say 3840 x 1644 is not?
21:9 = 2,3333
2160 x 2,3333 = 5039, 928 (can be said 5040)
5040 x 2160 = 5K , SD865 does not support 5K
4096x2160 is not 21:9
If Samsung, Apple or any cheap chinese put same screen, you will say it is 4K and celebrate.

I think Sony phones are optimised for this sort of thing.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2020Explain us how phone can play youtube 4K and S20 cannot.
If both are QHD in your opinion.
simple. being quad hd is not against being 4k. you can watch 4k but can't watch UHD unless downscaled to qhd.
i already explained resolutions previously. ain't got time to do it again for every single kid that comes here.
Looks like my next phone :)

Go to your phone that matches your preferences in the first place, especially when you're mentioning Chinese OEMs, not raiding Sony (Xperia 1 II's) forum like wild with your statements. There are some people prefer Sony than other OEMs because of reasons. I'm fine that you don't like Sony, but this is just way too much. It's like raiding a small devoted village clandestinely...
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 07 Apr 2020What's the display nits?Last year Xperia 1, reviewed by this site, was able to reach 391 nits in manual mode and 665 nits in Auto (only browsing photos or watching videos). Xperia 1 II possibly in the ballpark of Xperia 1's nits measurement. It could be higher or lower.

DantE O2, 08 Apr 2020ofc they didn't advertise it as UHD because it's QHD .Explain us how phone can play youtube 4K and S20 cannot.
If both are QHD in your opinion.
ofc they didn't advertise it as UHD because it's QHD .
Stores in UK may start pre-order soon.
Sales in Japan starts in 2 weeks if nothing goes wrong.
Japan units will earn few cam things as update. Units for Europe will ship with this update already.
[deleted post]Are you fighting about this because you own the phone and are disappointed with the screen capabilities?
What's the display nits?
