AnonD-206292, 03 Dec 2017Wow this conversation is turning into a lengthy essays now..lol, I'll try to keep this concise... moreDear friend.
I love and enjoy writing its my speciality. So a book about and why would be a nice gft for reading for you :-)
People buying Samsung and Apple only because they are shy to buy other brand they are SHY to try something new.
And yes look at Xiaomi their sales are better and better every year and the price is lower and lower. We had Xiaomi Note 4 for like 180 eur and now we have Xiaomi Note 5A for like 125 eur.
Man about screen you were right because screen in past era were horrible but 4k is really useless. Man reason high battery consumption, other main reason Full HD and 4K have no difference for naked eye. And apart 4K display cost much more to produce it offers nothing extra just an bigger battery consumption. Anyway what next? 8K screen or 16K on a 5 inch display? You know i asume you are a very clever person it will have no use and FULL HD is more than enough. Instead of spending money for research into the batteries which should be long time ago companies coninue to waste money on researching new and better screens where for a basic human is no difference. They continue research on Iris scanner where Hashtag app could secure your phone more that having Iris scanner with slight chance to being unlocked by any other person. In present ERA from 1A chargers we have an option to buy 5A chargers but thats the limit not many batteries in phones are build for a 5A chargers. Instead of producing screen which will never breaks even after fall n concrete they make curved screen which apart from being very slippery and resistant to put glass protector on it have no practical use. VR is nice tech on a big screen not 5 inch.
There it have no practical use and using VR on 5 inch screens makes your eyes blind very soon. Its definitely not healthy.
And yes Sony phne failed me had same experience from Samsung now i have Lenovo Vibeshot bought almost same date as it were released untill now works like brand new. And i expecting same for next several years. Also Having Moto X4 which is one of the newest phones on the market and also expecting the same.
Lenovo is first from like 10 brands i ever had mobile phone from where my phones going like a swiss watch. Like train that bnever stops.
Had same experience with Nokia phones past times.
But that really past. After 11 days at 17.12. i will have 36 years and i still remember my first Nokia phone when i was going to basic school. But thats the another story.

All i wanted o show and say no matter how Sony will try the price of the phone will break the borders between reality and beyound believe.

Waiting the best moment to buy a phone. Whatever dude. The fact is youre still using SP. This is 2017 none can live with worst quality TFT screen and old dualcore but ya. If you wait for best moment to buy a phone, maybe next year your status is the same, still waiting. Just accept it, youre not ready for flagship. Buy any new phone and it will definitely better than your sp.
Dude dont plan to use phone for long time. My first android phone was galaxy wonder, when i get prerelease bbm apk, i could not install it in my phone, even when i installed ICS ROM. So i gave it to my nephew and get new phone. Then my carrier force me to switch to 4G phone, i ddnt have choice, i switched, gosh it wasnot 64bit cpu, i sell it. So i found that expensive phone are not for me.
Bagas Satya, 05 Dec 2017I recommend you cheap chinese, another xiaomi phone with latest miui, it brings many features ... moreJ7 and Meizu will probably not last me 4 years or more due to their average performance. I prefer phones with extra performance under the hood, so that the phone can keep up with latest games and apps even after 3 years. Xiaomi I've already tried so not at all interested in Xiaomi device for now and also Xiaomi phone's a pretty common sight in India.
Was originally planning to get Huawei P9 and I tried to get it from Flipkart on Big Billion Day flash sale at 15k INR, but that sale was over in a flash...lol. Then I thought about Honor 8 pro but that also never got the same discounted price as on Big Billion Day and now Honor V10 release is upon us, will wait and see how the review and price goes. Maybe I'll buy honor 8 pro if the price goes even lower after the release of V10 in India.

You will find it fun and easy to use, its like everything is already there for you.
I am currently using sammy J7+ and meizu m5 note. Both are beautiful full metal unibody phone. What can i say is j7+ is quality phone, ofcourse it isnt the best or super powerful. It excels in all features it has, its good for vlogging n live. I love the trendy dual camera with its live focus features. Also AOD and Always on fingerprint sensor, the best thing is bixby.
M5N is more beautiful phone, feature rich beautiful and fun ui, i love their signature home button and clean front. Best UI, its like everything is there and works perfectly. I am a bit worry about its quality, but its 8 months of using and no problem, so far i am highly satisfied.
What I would like to see in a phone:
Sony bezel less design (if the render comes out to be true), with better speaker quality
Pure android OS
In display finger print reader
FHD quality display with HDR, no QHD,4K bullshit
day and half battery life
Guess i am asking too much

But as cap say most of people dont buy flagship, including you. You are not ready for them but sticking with old SP is poor choice, buying chinese phone is best choice for you.
Hope this help. There are three kind of chinese phone, the popular chinese and cheap chinese and rarely heard chinese. Huawei, oppo, vivo are popular one, they are on top 5 smartphone vendor, their phone are pricey. Xiaomi, meizu, zte is cheap chinese, they have skills, they can make quality phone if they want but they opted to make cheap phone.

But I definitely did not meant GUI alone. As UI only means the skin of the phone, but I wanted to include the bloatware in it hence ROM, but somehow I wrote OS....lol
I planned to use Mi3 for 3 years but that got stolen so I had to fall back on my other phone Xperia SP, I didnt't bought new one as I am currently saving for a PC and maybe PS4 Pro as well.
Also care to tell me on what basis you're recommending me a Chinese phone and by the way which model ?
AnonD-206292, 03 Dec 2017Wow this conversation is turning into a lengthy essays now..lol, I'll try to keep this concise... moreDude, u still using SP? Gosh.. Its the worst quality TFT.. Its too pale. All the phone you have tried are too standard in ui. Forget about your dream flagship and your conversation with cap..
I recommend you chinese phone, choose chinese with advanced UI, those who call their ui OS, like color OS, oxigen os, flyme OS etc. You will find everything is easier n fun.
AnonD-441601, 03 Dec 2017Man nicely said.
But in present era like 80% of global population maybe more cant afford 600... moreWow this conversation is turning into a lengthy essays now..lol, I'll try to keep this concise so we can bring this conversation to an end soon..
At first glance it may look like majority of population can't afford high end phone, but if you'll look at Samsung and Apple sales figure and unit sold you'll notice its actually the opposite. Samsung and Apple keeps on increasing the price of their phone every year and yet every year more or at least similar amount of units are sold.
All the features like water-proofing, 4k screen, DAC, 120Hz screen may look like unnecessary add on to you, but I see them as a sneak-peak into the future. For example: 15 years ago we use to use phones with 1.5 inch screen 128 X 128 pixel resolution phone and now 5" 1080p is a common thing. So if we apply that logic here 4k screen is actually the future and mobile manufacturer will have to begin using these tech at some point so why not now?, VR will benefit from 4K a lot.
Now, what I understand from some of your previous comments is that you believe that Sony phones or the likes of it doesn't last long enough to justify its price (I may be wrong though). But all the phones I've been using since 2002 never once failed on me. Bought Samsung Wave in 2010 for almost $400 and it still works though at the beginning of 6th year it developed the random reboot issue. Used Xiaomi Mi3 for 1.5 years before it got stolen, and currently I am using Sony Xperia SP 3.5 year old bought in 2014 hangs like there's no tomorrow but its due to it only having dual core processor though it still works and get the job done.
So all I can say is since expensive Sony phone failed on you multiple times, you now don't find any confidence in expensive phones from big brands. I on the other hand never experienced anything of that sort, so I can continue to have faith on big brands phones to last me a good 4-5 years.

It's high time they sold their mo... moreOooh, they won't ever bother touching that decision, unless the next paradigm shift of Sony said so. But, they had making more profits than before (except Q2 '17). Besides, next year will be the 10th anniversary of Xperia. Why they do that on their celebration of their Xperia lineup that have been living for almost 10 years? Don't blame me if another Sony fans come here to attack you. I already warned you......
AnonD-441601, 01 Dec 2017Strange phone with Strange name and as expected from sony it will have horrible price for its ... moreNo offence dude. But, you do realized H8541 means the numbers and code of Sony Xperia phones for 2018, not the real name of the phone? (not even their codenames like previously for 2017's Gxxxx : Yoshino, BlancBright, Pikachu, etc.). We have to wait for few months until we heard the name from leaks and sources.
Do i need to remind you all the codes of Sony phones since the announcement of Xperia Z? (previous Sony Xperia phones from 2012 still derived from their Sony Ericsson code number naming, ex : LT22i, LT21i, etc.)
Sony Xperia codes and year release :
C = 2013
D = 2014
E = 2015
F = 2016
G = 2017
H = 2018
(I = 2019)
