Tann Hauser, 08 Oct 2020IR sensor? Because 0.0005% of people care for having it. Most of us, if needed, use wifi/bt ... more0.0005%? Really? Well That's your opinion. Unfortunately, you're wrong about that about this by 99.9995%. IR sensors may not used just in TV sets, you just don't grasp the capabilities of it - most of home apliences and IOT shit may be controlled by this sensor. Wifi & Bluetooth are not always reliable & drain tio much power. Striping phones from jack, FM radio or SD card slots will end big brands. FM radio is ideal for public annoncements related to state emergency and free access to infornation & music - old school but still better than paid . I frequenly want to listen to it - even i have a spotify plan, where you still cannot listen to everything you know or love. And besides there were phones once, which had pure PTT function and you could easily switch to off-band walkie talkie channel. Also i remember - i had to wait ages for Sony Android updates. Camera, Cpu or RAM is just pure basic thing for me and will not play any role & each Brand should understand that these spec must be good by default - it's nothing new or special. Sony was a Pioneer, now it's crawling backwards just as Samsung and few other big name companies. Windows phones may have been crap (just don't now - probably they were good actually), but the phone market also needs to fill that gap after windows left the market - by bringing back balance with widely accessible OS.

I don't understand why people are obsessed with more cameras, more megapixels. Do you think a three/four/five camera setup and 48/64/105 megapixel can produce better photos? Those who think this way should use a Google Pixel phone. And why people need 50 or 120 watt chargers? The faster your battery recharges, the faster it also degrades. 15-18 watt chargers should be sufficient, both for your time and the health of the battery.
This phone is a good flagship from Sony. Too bad not everyone will buy this.

Thought that google assist button will be a bother but is not at all. It doesnt protrude, and has to actualy be pressed and held to activate assistnt. So no accidental assist activation, which is nice.
Love them bezels too. Dont know how these bezeless fan people hold or operate those all_just_screen phones. They must have some hard time adjusting to using two hands all the time. Here I am, struggling one hand use with these mini bezels even.
Cam experience for me is sth altogether else.
I do not own an Alpha cam, so having one alike on a phone feels top notch to me. MR mode is thumbs up. Im getting excellent lowlights using it.

I got it too, yesterday.
Im at 4:30 h SoT and at just about 70% battery. : D
Doing everything a little, putting it to tests.
Guess I will get about 14 h screen on time here. :)

Even the same phone have 128GB option.
Many phones under 300 have 8GB ram and 256GB disk space.
12 mpix camera??? Even the Nookia 808 Pureview had 41 Mpix just sayn.
his phone have many features which even 300 eur cell phones have better.
And your desired IP resistance is just a costly gimmick.
As long as water damage is not covered in warranty whether you have or not IP resistance it doesnt matters once your phone dies from water damage you have to pay expensive repair and do a lot of prayers to see t working again and not loose all your precious data.
guys any one can help me . i want to buy this phone but i want the gray colour . i searched for it every where but i didn't found it . thanks for helping in advance

I am using the device right now and it has 10h screen-on-time. Also, what mid-rangers have 120Hz, 5G, IP68 etc.? Keep trolling ;-)
AnonD-731363, 13 Oct 2020Very costly midranger.
Maybe flagship CPU but front and back camera are weak battery is weak... moreNot all people care about the cameras.
This is a nice business phone and something like this was missing from the market since the S10e was phased out.
What I want is relatively small size, decent CPU, IP68 rating and a headphone jack because I'm still using headphones with a cable. This phone is spot on. When the price drops it looks like a strong candidate to replace my LG G6.
Very costly midranger.
Maybe flagship CPU but front and back camera are weak battery is weak 18W charging only and only 128GB for price of 900.
Dunno what Sony is thinking but this phone is DOA.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2020this camera Does it have any place in Top20 of DxoMark ???????DxoMark is a joke anyway. Who care
Does it have any place in Top20 of DxoMark ???????
Hey, where did you order from? did you get the headphones?
Just received my phone from pre-order. Just wow! It is a fantastic little beast and the build quality is excellent. However, I recommend buying a case for everyone, as it is super slippery.
Sony has now become a dream phone for me since it closed its business in India.

Prob has IR so that it can interact with a bunch of other Sony products.
