AnonD-20461, 25 Aug 2017I want to know, what phone do you have? i love sony. lol
AnonD-690051, 27 Aug 2017sony's 4K is gimmick because it is Lcd and doesnt support daydream.
That "gimmick" can play full res 4k hdr video from amazon, yt and netflix, and does indeed run daydream just as any other screen....all of which cant be said for any other screen.
Reffer yourself to high definition TV screens aspects and resolutions.
On the other hand, 2:1 screens are indeed gimmicks as they dont utilise most of media content available out there without certain serious content crippling shortcomings, and screens function is to run content in full afterall...
So if you really dont need those wide aspect ratio screens...it should be considered as a gimmick all right.
AnonD-219742, 25 Aug 2017No matter how shiny you polish it up, this phone doesnÂ’t live up to its price and epithetLOL. indeed. it looks very old. if you use it people would think that you've been using it for more than 10 years.
Haters say 4k screen is gimmick but if their phone uses 4k screen they will say it is an innovative and great screen..
The function of super slowmotion 960fps recording is not like you record slowmo video from start to end...
It takes 0.5s to record and it takes 5s when you play it, if you record 15 minutes how long will it take to play? In once recording you can record 960fps at many times, you just push the 960fps button again and again in one video to capture only special moment. It is a smartway, you dont know How to enjoy it and you dont have the phone but you dare to bash this feature... Silly
Who said low light quality if xzp is bad? You dont know anything about it
AnonD-219742, 25 Aug 2017No matter how shiny you polish it up, this phone doesnÂ’t live up to its price and epithetHmmm...

Its a freakin 2 page thread with 3 guys discussing.
You probably changed account to post that OP in the first place, so you could reply like this to it.
I will report your troll ars", its not even worth debating with you, as you are on sony threads for just one and one reason only....

And LG has done so much of this over the years. Of course, nearly all of these has proved useless, which is a main reason why LG is not so popular. BTW, not a LG fan, but have owned LG.

But, this shows that they did try to improve some of the problems on previous ones even if it is a minor improvement. And, every new gimmick/innovation is a welcome, I mean no hate.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 25 Aug 2017Because u don't appreciate the smartphone that's why.Nothing to appreciate on this phone. Looks like a phone from 2012 with its giant bezels. Its gimmick 4k screen and 960fps camera that only works for 0.2 of a second. Why can't Sony solve its age old problem of bad low light photography ?
Truth is Sony doesn't care, as it brings out a new Flagship model every six months with virtually the same specs. Sony's game plan is to trick the public and make more sales, but guess what ?, it doesn't work Sony.

It seems to be in most of these models. So far, Sony is not responding and just ignoring this known problem. Exchanging your unit may help, but it could also return with a new phone.
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2017Why 5.46 inches instead of 5.5?to have more pixels per inch XD

No matter, single or dual sim, no matter what phone, the weaker the signal, the more SoCs modem drains the battery.
AnonD-666910, 24 Aug 2017one of the best phone i ever used.4k hdr resolution is a gesture from sony.but overpriced phone...Bro u can see s8 price
Hermes Hidayat, 23 Aug 2017Huge bezels are good for games and holding... I prefer XZ Premium compared to my S8+.... Good point Hermes. May be then Sony should maintain a regular thinner bezel version and bezeled version for passionate gamers...that way both customers are Happy 👍👍
