Processors do not degrade over time (does not get slower). So it should last a very long time as long as the programs are supported and does not require too much resources. Also Apple did slow older phones via software updates in the past. (Apple got fined)

and for intel processors, pretty sure they released some patched on linux and windows, even windows 7 got that patches back in some years ago. that's why i said it's not about the hardware most of the time,it's the os, once they stop support, you're on your own

Very few apps (almost none) which require you to be on absolute latest version.
Unless a group of hackers specifically target you using the security hole or vulnerability (if it exists) which is not fixed through a security patch, you have nothing to worry about. The likelihood of such a thing happening is 0.00001%.
So lack of security patches don't affect the end user in the real world.
Ppl and several businesses used Intel chipsets for years without issues despite the Spectre & Meltdown vulnerabilities. As I said, unless a team of hackers specifically target you exploiting that security loophole, you are safe.
Ppl continue to fall for marketing gimmicks where they feel if they don't have the latest security patch, they are vulnerable or worse the phone becomes unusable after 2 years. These are the same people that can be hacked using a simple phising link and they are worried about vulnerabilities in the system that are less likely a threat.
an, 21 May 2020you dont understand. Its 1200eur,its a car price in some countries,if you have ultimate price ... moreThe same can be said about any flagship. On others you pay 1200€ and don't get 4k. So it depends if you think high refresh is more important than overall sharpness. If you play games go for a high refresh if you watch films go for 4k simple. If Samsung and Apple can charge that price without too many complaints then so can Sony. Because depending on what's important to you they are all the best at something

Its 1200eur,its a car price in some countries,if you have ultimate price you should provide ultimate feature,the main ultimate feature in 2020 is 120hz refresh rate. The 60hz screens is a 90's era,its not used even in 2002 military scope flir's.

Prior to this I had been using a model up to 5yr from release, same case, everything worked up until I got myself a new one.
So android updates or not after official 2 yrs of support, I assume one is safe in OS/security/app performance for 5 yrs after model release.

android supposed to be open source so perhaps the community have some guidelines about all that thing,emulator perhaps, or updating os and stuff,patching security all those but i haven't research that much

So it will take longer to see improvements in processing power and efficiency. The next Snapdragon may have 5nm. In the future, phones should still feel fast even after 4-5 years.

Now that level raised to 900-1200 for flagships.
Thats almost double.
Well, at least the 300 worth headphone bundle is here again.
I ll wait and see what Xp 5 II will cost, and then decide.

That being said, I like the Xperia Pro, but I don't want to buy it. It doesn't seem to be practical on a daily basis. It's designed for professionals with mmWave 5G technology, which to my understanding requires line of sight with the transmitter. It's cool and fast, but highly impractical. And it looks like a brick. Again, practical for professional environment. But not for daily use.

What's so different than getting a new Chinese phone every year? What is this need to upgrade phones every year to follow the "trend" out of fear being left out if you don't change flagship phones every year?
If you have a great quality phone that lasts years like most Sony Xperia phones, you don't need to upgrade phones that often. Battery still good, software and security patches are ongoing, no problems. I don't see a reason why you need a new phone. Yes it's expensive, but it's also last longer. In the end, everyone still get what they pay for.
six_tymes, 20 May 2020i'm waiting for the PRO version. I have doubts about a phone as powerful and filled with potential as this one will have a "pro" version.
Pretty much answered every complaint people been asked. Translate and Read
Anonymous, 20 May 2020Price will be 1198 in USA.That price is like a wake up smack on my device liking smiling face.
Hope there are enough other people ready to cash out that amount for a mobile.
