Interyanan, 12 Aug 2017Overall? Is this a good phone?the "BEAST" of them all
Tann Hauser, 15 Aug 2017Nonsens. Stop promoting that copycat company. VR google patents? Google Cardboard released ... moreSony are too honest, for their own good, so they'll never sell many smartphones, whilst other firms cheat their benchmarks, etc. etc, but atleast their ideas are original, and everyone knows, that they make the best phones on The Planet, so that's the most important thing.
Hope Sony will make Xperia XZ Tablet, with the world's first 4K tablet display with 10.1" 3840x2400 at 448 ppi.

There should be a specified joke thread for you to post there...called Samsung promotion jokes.
The plastic nylon side makes the phone more comfortable and easier to grip than metal. A smart move for Sony. It shouldn't matter what material was used but how it was used. Fine craftsmanship, indeed.
Best phone I've ever own. A timeless masterpiece. Even on an league of its own. Man, do I love it!

Of course you need hardware to work with software, but Qnovo only designs and develops SOFTWARE. What part of that can't you understand ?
"The integration of Qualcomm® Quick ChargeĀ 4 charging technology together with Qnovo QNI software allows mobile device manufacturers to deliver a safety-conscious and higher performance total battery experience."
"Qnovo QNI adaptive charging software is currently available for Android-based Snapdragon 835 designs."
Sony doesn't make batterys anymore, as it sold its battery division last year to Murata. And Samsung makes Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipsets.

Your claims are ridiculous and just your normal Sony promotional biased jargon. Qnovo has claimed all this as its a business and this is what businesses do.

Do you has any knowledge at all ? saying software costs more than hardware is plain dumb. Software design costs a fraction of hardware development.
