Xperia Z – Fir... moreCongratulations. You like the 4K Oled screens made by LG and Samsung used in Sonys recent flagships. Even Sonys high end Oled TV uses LG panels.
In another 2/3 years Sony may have foldable screen phones. Sony will sit back, watch, copy and finally present one. As Sony has financial problems, no real R&D technology for phones.
I gave you some real facts, but your not interested in the truth. And its not my job to educate you. In reality, your comment was just a bunch of baloney. Kinda amusing to me as you put in a lot of effort to no avail with no result..
Every year we hear the same bragging about Sonys latest flagship and every year its a failure against the competition. I will enjoy the show again in 2020, while you enjoy your delusions.

That must be beauty for you. Don't worry, Sony is always 2/3 years behind in design. Just wait and Sony will catch up.

Some have to be left out, so that those generic cheaply copied trendy designs have customers also.

Coming to front facing Stereo Speakers.. the companies you mentionedÂ…Are these really Stereo or simply Dual-Mono sounding speakers? Go Google and come back to me ok???
21:9 by LG is fine but it was failure in 2010 due to design. This year sony brought this with 4K HDR OLED Display, almost bezeless and with sexy omni balance design. Show me one mobile like this?? Even close to this with these specs. Then come to me again.
Soon other companies will follow sony as usual. Already Samsung trying hard to copy sony in Z-flip with 20:9 aspect Ratio and side mount fps.
Tominson, 18 Mar 2020Nokia 1 also won IF design Awards…hahaha ... IF design awards are almost unknown.
European ... moreAre n't we talking About DESIGN????? IF design Awards are for the most/highest design Awards for Smartphones. No Body cares About Imaging and Sound Awards as design.
Who Says no to Nokia getting a design Award. Also I'm Talking About flagships. Sony has been Winning These flagship design Awards past few years. Not just in product Segment but in new Features like cinematography pro apps etc.. Anyway. This is just a proof that not everyone loves Ugly notches and punchholes. Sony Xperia is sexy and always will be
AnonD-921183, 18 Mar 2020Guess who won IF design Awards?? Also Show me one mobile with 21:9 aspect RatioGuess you should tell that troll that EISA has nothing to do with design awards, its european imaging and sound award association active since 1980ties.
And Sony did pretty good this year there, got some 6 awards, amongst them also for EF eye autofocus innovation, present on Xperias.
IF is International association for best product design award, active since 1950ties.
So pretty much most relevant proffesional product design association in the world.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2020You forgot Sony's giant bezels for 2020. Xperia looks like a 2016 phone with its giant bezels.This bezel are very tiny, it is 100 times better than notch or punchole that block in front of your beautiful screen. Tiny bezel is still better than bezel-less because people can grasp nice with fingers unlike bezelless are force you to grasp only the side frame! If they want making bezel-less please make it thicker to grasp but all are slim too, it feel easy drop off the phone if you're short of hand to grasp the bezelless "smart" phone.

It is for the movies and not TV Shows. Still you get all Content without any loss in both 16:9 and 21:9. While 16:9 Display is good for TV Shows, it is useless for movie Content. By the way today almost all flagships neother Comes with 16:9 nor 21:9. So guess who is losing both the Content :) Also we Talking About mobile phones and not LG TV's

The term "21:9" was chosen as a marketing term, first used by Philips in January 2009.
As of 2017, this ratio (21:9) is rarely used in TVs, due to it causing pillar boxing with standard 16:9 content.

Sony don't manufacture like China or Apple companies and don't flooding with advertise like these company, but I personally believe they will keep moving forward for who appreciate the design (notchless) and for user demand (example 3.5mm). Nowadays people are not dreaming to have a notch or punchole but marketing brag it has bezel-less screen, that making most of the display imperfect with these "gimmick", some of them ditch the 3.5mm and only Sony listen to the customer demand bring it back!
