    Do you prefer a taller phone or wider screen?

      I kinda like tall phone, cause easy to hold, but with poor UX...NO.

      100% im sure this ia going to be the new wave for phones but Sony was just to early for people to notice that. Its way better for multitasking

      This reviewer is quite double standard. There is always a negative side after giving credit to something positive about the phone. I don't know if he did this also to iPhone 11 pro or to Samsung galaxy S10 plus

        Stop complaining about the price because Sony is a well known brand.If you want a cheaper one then buy to a less known brand.

              "Finally Sony has made a phone with a camera thats pretty good". Umm Im a videographer who used the Xperia Z5 Premium for almost 3 years and my video looked better with more true to life color and brightness than tv cameras utilized by people around me. Where do you think Samsung and Apple get their cameras from? The camera typically isnt your issue, its the fact that getting a specific look isnt typically done for you by the phone so you have to edit it yourself, which content creators, videographers, and photographers are more than happy to do.

                I stopped watching your video when you said OnePlus has a better camera than the Sony.
                OnePlus is a great phone, probably the one I'd buy out of the two, but the one thing Sony beats OnePlus at is camera quality.
                Its things like this that help me remember why I stopped watching you guys.

                    Honestly...are you F-nig serious?! iPhones offer NOTHING and cost north of $1000! And pretend to be “pro”
                    This phone has 21:9 pro oled display, high def audio...that’s actually real not hype...syncs to Sony’s amazing top of the line noise canceling headphones that beats Apple and Bode...and has a triple camera lenses...that takes incredible photos.
                    But apparently you’re a an Apple fan or don’t get it I guess...and are just another sucker who only sees that 10yr old iOS software is the answer.

                          I don't like this form factor. It's a pain to read something with one hand in portrait mode if content doesn't wrap. Constant swiping left and write defies the pros of being tall and narrow.

                                  Xperia phones are extremely underrated. In most cases they feel as fast and smooth as stock android or iOS.

                                    I can get this phone new for 300€ (About 400$us i think?). Should I?
                                    I've used a Nexus 5 my whole life (yep, i still rock it to this day) and i'm considering which phone to pick (i don't know if pixel 3 is worth the money).
                                    What would you recommend? Thanks

                                              6 gb of ram, which decent but not stellar. Bet they admire iphone better.

                                                          I wouldn't spend $900 on this thing. I did get it for about $78 from best buy with my 50% off accomodation and some rewards certificates that I've saved up. Not a bad deal.

                                                            I'm assuming the reason the screen doesn't go to bright is to maintain its color balance and accuracy. Typically smartphones tend to reproduce colors worse at brighter levels by implementing more blues

MINE has a 64GB Micro SD in it as we talk. 21:9 aspect is supported in depth by Netflix and to a letter extent by Amazon. The screen ain't searchlight strength but by is SHARP with phenomenal colour reproduction.

                                                                      Sonys Z5 Premium came out it 2015 and had a 4K display. Also a 23 megapixel camera. Two years later the XZ Premium introduced recording with 1000fps. Also, Sony still pushes the sharp edges look which is amazing. Basically the 2001 monolith. Sony was always on top with specs. Come on, it's Sony, remember the Satio in 2009? That thing had 12 megapixels, in 2009. Let that sink in.

I have had mine 6 weeks now and it is full of problems. 4G drops in and out, the phone over heats and drops calls, weak signal, jumps into aeroplane mode, fingerprint recognition is nowhere near as good as the iPhone and hard to use and Sony support is rubbish. On paper this phone should be amazing but reality once again Sony haven't got this one sorted and it still needs a lot of work and better customer service.
