Sony’s new phone has finally OLED display, as well as Snapdragon 845, and 4gb RAM. Review and specs below.
Well, it’s beautiful. The front is really like a Samsung S series phone, no notch and a little frame on the screen sides. On the back there is only one camera, the same as the XZ2 have, and the fingerprint reader is in the middle (hard to reach), and of course Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides. There is side sense on the right side of the phone, which is useful and easy to use (it’s like a programmable button). The display is finally OLED (6”) with HDR support, the technology is the same what Sony uses in their BRAVIA TVs. It really has amazing colours and details with QHD+ 1440×2880 pixels resolution. X-Reality engine is another feature, that converts SDR sources to HDR.
There cannot be any complaint about performance, it has Snapdragon 845 and 4GB of ram (Why not 6 Sony?!?). The most interesting feature is the Dynamic Vibration System, which is much powerful than other phones vibrations,and fun to use while watching movies or gaming, but it consumes a lot of mAh. Surround speakers on the front has good sound and they are loud. The battery is 3300mAh is not so big, but with the lots of smart modes, like Qnovo Adaptive Charging and Battery Care it can easily withstand a day and more. Storage can be expand with up to a 512GB sd card.
Sony’s cameras are always at the top 5, but not in there smartphones. Whereas most of the smartphone manufacturers uses Sony lenses, there phones somehow not as good as they should be. The standalone camera has a a 19MP Motion Eye system, 1 /2.3” sensor and 1.22μm. Features-Predictive Hybrid autofocus (0.03s)-BIONZ image processing engine-960fps slo-mo in Full HD (alone on the market)-8x digital zoom-4K HDR Movie Recording-SteadyShot with 5-axis stabilisation (digital) Even with this list, it is still not as good as Samsung or apple. The video recording is near the same, but photography is far away. Sometimes it’s blurry and so noisy, as well as overexposed.On the other hand the 13MP selfie camera does a great job, with details and amazing colours.
Sony’s new flagship phone is not a big improvement from the last one, but it’s not a bad phone. With cool videoing capabilities and beautiful OLED display, and if you don’t care of the wrong placed fingerprint reader, it’s a good choice with Top Performance, Flagship camera (not the best), and much more!
