Sorry bud, I think I'll be more happy watching them on my 29 inch 21:9 1080p LG LCD. (With my nice headphones too, not tinny phone speakers)
Dennis.K, 24 May 2020What does that have to do with thisBecause you said under screen fps is cool, so I presumably thought it's merely for just showing off (you know, like what a cool kid in town would do so)
Anonymous, 24 May 2020The screen looked very good, And the video wasn't in 4kThen it only makes the wound hurt more.
It's so freakin' better in almost every aspect that it makes the iPhone's screen look budget-level in comparison.
Brightk9it, 24 May 2020But Sony needs to get there camera game up the lights where over blown.... I was disappointed ... moreBlown out highlights are clear indication of natural image rendering. You just have gotten fooled by artificial processing on iPhones, Pixels, and Galaxies, which are all absolutely fake and unneditable. In that case, you could import GCAM to the phone and get the same results, maybe even better because of better camera hardware.
The main target of the Xperia 1 Mk II's camera system is for those professional users who actually know how to compose an image and with enough knowledge about photography and cinematography. They'd get the same professional level of photo shooting and film making in a smartphone with class-leading (for smartphones) quality that's comparable to proper digital camera equipments like the Sony Alpha and CineAlta series. In short terms, this is Manual Photo and Manual Video on steroids, or in another way, it's both Sony a9 and Sony Camcorders in a smartphone.

joe nodden, 24 May 2020Lmao 60hz is 60hz dude. You can't make it seem smoother than it actually is. Try an actual 120... moreYou can make a 370Hz display to only work in 60fps and it could still make you believe it's only a 60Hz display.
Ever since Xperia X, Sony's constantly using natively 120Hz displays for their upper mid range and flagships. Heck, they even went as far as up to 144Hz with the XZ2 Premium in 2018. Obviously the Xperia 1 and 1 Mk II are no exception, for having native 120Hz refresh rate but only locked down by software to 60Hz.
Besides, SD865 doesn't support more than 60Hz in 4K, so Sony had to do some software magic to make it work for at least 90Hz and give you an immersive viewing experience that only Sony can provide you.

If only we had 120hz so we could watch the film at hmm 24fps. Wait a second .......

Holy moly 2100 comments and still increasing...
This phone is officially the king of smartphones, even when it is not here yet. Haha take that haters, 2020 and Sony still gets all your attention. Galaxy, iPhone and chinese brands are only virgins when standing beside this chad.
And yeah btw, keep saying Sony makes useless tech, 1-2 years later all manufacturers in the world will copy it and some will say they invented it. Same thing happened to IP68, 960 super slow motion, 4K HDR recording,... Don't worry, as long as you haters still make Sony popular, Sony will still produce better and more amazing features to the mobile industry, and you will be able to have those features from your favorite brands just 2 years later.

But for less than that price you could have purchased XZ Premium "King of Smartphones-2017" but yeah that is your personal preference. As long as you are satisfied that is fine.

Thanks for the link.
I believe he had the settings wrong on the Xperia 1 for the inicial video comparison. The Xperia 1 appears to be in 4k not 1080, as the stabilization was a lot worse than the mark 2, but it appeared sharper.
In any case the mark 2 stabilization looks very impressive

Vineet Reddy, 24 May 2020You are wrong if you think SONY was failure before 2014 the year when it completely abandoned ... moreWell I own the Xperia XZ1 & a pair of LG V30+ from 2017. Personally my preference always tends to V30+. You may call it my personal preference. To me the V30+ is a much better device as it suits my taste to a T. Others may vary.
Smithravi, 24 May 2020One thing to remember is that LG also have the same fate of Sony, not many sales (It's uniquen... moreMy few cents:
1) It is true LG is having poor sales in India, but at-least they are trying & experimenting new directions. LG Velvet is a good try in the right direction in higher mid-range. However their sales figures are still much healthier than Sony smartphones worldwide.
2) Motorola came back to India with their Moto G lineup when they were owned by Google and not by any Chinese company.
3) It is true Samsung in India has more market share because of it's mid-range mobiles and not because of flagships. This is a trait of any healthy company. Generate good revenue from every avenue, provide cutting edge innovations and technology in flagships as now you are healthy and have the money to do so. The company should also provide solid VFM mid-rangers and also make basic smartphones at very competitive prices for those graduating from feature phones to smartphones. That's a true smartphone company, a handset available to every people for every need. I salute Samsung.
4) Lets me tell you a true fact my friend. Everybody is here to do business and generate revenue. And Sony is no exception. Any sane mind knows you cannot get the same quality of a flagship in a mid-range phone. The price speaks for itself. The very reason why Sony smartphone division retreated back from many countries is because of their lack of competitive edge and bad price to performance ratio in mid-range "cash cow" segment. They did not generate the revenue to hit back hard. Heck they did not have even a proper marketing budget which only means the division was suffering.
5) Quality of a product depends on which price bracket one is operating. If you are asking of a $1000+ price bracket, quality comes by default. In that sense their is negligible difference in quality between a Sony, Samsung LG, Apple & Huawei flagship. And in this regard Samsung & Huawei is in the fore front on innovations as they have most money to do so. Sony & LG lags behind. It then all boils down to which manufacturer ecosystem you like the most. A healthy company like Samsung or Huawei will have phones in $1000~$1400+ price range to generate very high profit, $500~$700 per devices sold.
6) Day by day it is becoming very hard for Japanese & Korean manufacturers to create a mid-range phone of same quality as a Chinese brand for the same price. Sony like LG does not have the know-how of this magic formula so they do not venture into it. It is not because they do not want to. A big company will try to generate revenue from any stream possible and grow. That is the number one rule of any big company like Sony. Grow and generate more revenue. Innovate with the money. Request you to get down from the high horse and stop thinking that Sony only makes expensive smartphones as they want to retain quality. Samsung now is trying very hard with their mid-range M series line-up with some success.
7) In the end it is very easy to create a $1000+ phone and talk about quality & performance. It is very hard to repeat the same for a $400 product. Chinese manufacturers my friend have already won the battle in the sub $500 segment and with phones like OnePlus 8 Pro, Oppo Find X2, Huawei Mate & P series, they are getting desperately close in the head to head flagship battle with the bigs. I only hope all companies co-exist and we the consumers get a lot of varieties to try from.
