Sony's newest phone is both the most impressive and the most niche phone they've ever made.

    Marques brownie is delusional to think this is ‘enthusiast’ or focusing on the wrong features instead of calling out other companies for their delusional abandonment of 3.5mm jacks and lowering the amount of ports on them

    I'm quite sure the phone is not 4K all the time but instead runs at 1096 x 2560 pixels except for select use cases (netflix, youtube, gallery) when switches to 4K (i say this while being the proud owner of the 1II)

Damn them and their ethics awards and trying to do the right thing.

    If a DSLR was a phone, this would be it. So, the photo will only be as good as the photographer. If you're pictures look dull it's because you've not taken the time to get the correct lighting or angle.
    This phone is NOT going to over process your photos like an iPhone and every other smartphone does. It's not going to bring detail out of the shadows using computational photography.
    If you're lazy and want that, get an S21 or iPhone. THIS phone is for the team Pro photographer who knows what they are doing.
    Hence the price.

    I think it's great how MKHD is talking about Sony phones but it's sad how he undersells or omits features only to criticize them when he's just using it wrong. If some of these features were on an iPhone or Samsung he would probably hype it up and actually delve deeper into it.

      No doubt about it. Sony's innovations are always copied by other brands. What's worse is that they take all the fame because of marketing. Remember the 3 layer stacked cmos sensor (960 fps)? 3D creator? Bravia Engine/X-Reality engine?

    Looks like the Camera is managing to enact a tiny zoom lens which is technically incredible.
    The 4k is something most enthusiasts should know is really rather pointless on such a small screen as a phone. A high end 720p screen and much better battery life would be so much better.
    Also 21:9 is not a useful aspect ratio, You don't see TV's coming out so extreme, why are phones doing this?

      @KRX Gaming GSM is the most trusted platform? I disagree. They themselves state that their device information has a chance of not being 100% correct. They had to update their 1 III review, because it had wrong information in it regarding the display (GSMArena stated that "Sony had explicitly told them that the screen cannot run 120hz@4K", but then they somehow contacted Sony again(?) and the company told them that it can, in fact, run both 120hz and 4K at the same time)
