As I sa... moreOh man, are you persistant in the delusion...
In your case, even a decade period will certainly be "wrong".
Qnovo users dont care.

As I said, Qnovo is yet to be proven. If it works, then its good news for everybody. LG is supposively using it also.

Clearly you don't own any Sony mobile.
S9 overheating issues btw
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2018Haha...there is no proof that qnovo is working. That's why no major phone manufacture adopt it... moreCorrect. On paper, Qnovo looks great. But, in reality, it hasn't been proven yet. Maybe in another 1or 2 years, we will see if qnovo really works.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2018Every phone will heat a bit but performance will not drop unlile sony.Depends on the games, I personally have quite a few games and only the low demanding game DR2C is crashing after a while, if switched to another app once.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2018Haha...there is no proof that qnovo is working. That's why no major phone manufacture adopt it... moreHow is there no proof lol, the function is there: you can have the phone charge a small remaining fraction before you wake up. When it comes to Li-Ion batteries, this is pretty important as overcharge or constant charging really hinders their efficiency in the long run. But anyway the subject is probably way overdue by now, frankly, I still doubt it can compete with any of the big players like the S9+ et al. I find your other statement rather worrying, I really wouldn't expect their SD845 to throttle, that really sucks. I wonder if other brands have this issue.

Anonymous, 18 Apr 2018If they wanted to stay in the top players on the industry, you 'few people', wouldn't really m... moreHonestly, that's the only reason I really liked Sony up to XZ2. And I'm sure it's the same for a significant amount of people too, the fact that Sony didn't care about trendy designs and held onto their own for generations. And you're totally right to go for HTC/Samsung, etc. to find whatever you're looking for, be it a fancy screen, better camera and so on. I never really cared about those, heck, I remember the days when Nokia were topping the market with 2mp cameras and they looked amazing.
Anyway, I could blame them for anything but storage speed and overall performance, however. If I were you I would check some professional measurements, I'm quite sure, in fact, that Sony is quite high up there with their read speeds and overall optimization. That's why they stuck to a smaller drive, and I can tell you they (r/w) are bloody fast even on Z5P. Could be possible Samsung have better read speeds by now, but I wouldn't bet on it. If you just want bulk storage let the SDD do its thing, unless you need a lot of 4K video recording.
As for Jack, I totally agree, it's such a letdown they removed one of their core features, that they just keep giving people more reasons not to go for their phones. The battery may be small, but the GSMA staff rated it quite high, might not be worth dismissing their take on it yet. This new Qnovo tech is quite promising, I'd get one just for that.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2018So much complain about design? Well it is just design. Performance is more important.I believe that form deals with function for any product that's why I was wondering what's the function of curved edges along screen sides that Samsung stick to it since 2005. In case of, design wise I really don't like it, besides it keeps screen too easy to break.

Anonymous, 06 Apr 20183. What are you talking about? He is talking about secure folderThe AVG app allows you to force authentication with the fingerprint reader when launching specific apps of your choosing. Its a feature of the AVG app. I can't comment on securing specific files though since I never tried.
Nor, 18 Apr 2018Some articles that this phone has a best performance in gaming.. I really like this phone.. Definitely, with the snapdragon 845 and FHD+ Display, front facing stereo speakers, and Sony software optimization, this smartphone is a gaming beast.
