Hello my dear Sony, I really love your design and everything you did on your flagships. I hope you keep the same thinking, and no need to change your style, go ahead what you should do. But the next flagship on your phone is no need to have Dual Cameras,
Just keep Single Camera is enough and great and lovely looks. Love Sony. Try your best.

who can explain me: why hdr support for chosen smartphones is added since hdr is a hardware feature. Every phone capable to display colors in hdr mode should be able to use material sent by ANY supplier ??!!

AnonD-442017, 05 Sep 2017HDR is colour output. 1080P is resolution. I don't see any... moreOops .. do you think that HDR content on the XZ Premium With 4k resolution will be the same as XZ1 with 1080p !!?
Answer: Hell No ...
So keep calm and use your brain ...

Display is just as important as battery life.
Processors have become super power efficient that even the 4K-powered XZ Premium gets a very solid endurance rating, despite what the screen specifications suggest (4K, HDR, IPS LCD).

And if we can just have both at the same time, why not?
Won't you love a display with superb contrast levels? You shouldn't be interested on flagships at all - mid rangers exist with whopping 5000mAh batteries that are proven longer lasting than flagships.

HDR streaming on a phone...ffs...
How about better batteries? Can we get that first, please?
All this useless stuff they are focusing on...

1080P is resolution.

I don't see any links between the two.......

Is using your brain illegal in your country?

It actually really great news because the HDR content is still very limited and with HDR streaming support from Netflix it will make the HDR display on Xperia XZ1 far more usefull.

HDR on 1080p display ... LOL that's not innovative at all , but I think it's jealousy ...

S8 users... loool

I think it should be "Galaxy note 8 was the first SAMSUNG device to officially support HDR streaming".

Although, I don't understand why Netflix would not bring HDR to S8 and S8+ too.
