John, 14 Apr 2021Sorry mate, but I'm with YUKI93. I currently own the O... moreThank you, it seems that someone out there still has common sense and get my point right. Even when reading GSMArena's review and look at the battery test section, the numbers speak for themselves.

As i know Sony the first price will be around 400 for a phone which under brand like xiaomi would cost no more than 150-200

pufanu, 14 Apr 2021Even 90Hz is a major improvement in user experience. That s... moreIt was painful for a bit (my 144hz PC monitor died) but then I realized the monitor wasn't running at 144hz after a Windows reset so I didn't even notice it. So from that experience Imma say for a phone it ain't too bad. Definitely not the worse exclusion.

DrakeX, 14 Apr 2021Man, you're missing a good feature if you haven't... moreWell I have used 144hz on PC. I do understand the buttery smoothness and satisfaction it brings. I've also tried the S20 briefly (just scrolling). I think a higher sampling rate would be much nicer than a higher refresh rate. Since on a 60hz screen I do feel like my current phone has a slight delay compared to an older Xperia ZR. That small thing feels snappy tho performance wise it doesn't keep up with my current SD665 phone. HOWEVER there might be a possibility that the screen does support HFR but it's hidden, like the Xperia X Performance. Tho daily use on the PC, HFR is alright but not necessary unless its gaming.

This better not cost more than $250. Otherwise I'm calling it now, this year or the start of next year Sony is going to pull an LG.

well all three phones are just perfect with 5III being the best of three...... But very disappointed by 10III..... they could have made it more compact.... why sony why ..... 4000mah battery would have suffice. and ofcourse this has been done to draw compact buyers to 5III but i doubt it will be anything in normal price range.... im sure it will be quite expensive.

Anonymous, 14 Apr 2021It has USB C 3.1 ... All phones with Snapdragon 870/888 ... moreXiaomi should take note of that. Even for their Mi and Mi Mix phones, they are still using USB2. Even the dead LG Mobile can give USB 3.1 on their K92 5G and Velvet 5G midrange phone for crying out loud!

Nice colors, beefy battery, normal size, headphone port, what an interesting midranger!!

Where's the 120 Hz?! Oh boy, another miss for Sony...

  • hmm

If they only would of made it something 20:9 and not this 21:9 they would of got it even smaller. 154 x 68mm tall is still a bit too big. Considering Samsung A41 that is 6.1 inch screen is 20:9 and is in 149.9 x 69.8mm dimension. Or even got with 19.5:9 like Samsung A 40 144.4 x 69.2mm for 5.9 inch screen.

While it's nice that they have the bezels to hide in the selfie cam but still phone is too large. Just remove the bottom bezel and you save few mm from the tallness of the phone

All phones with Snapdragon 870/888 should have as well.

Now when shown proof that ufs 3.1, the best exist, he says they are slower than ufs 2.0 even when the reality is the complete opposite.
Sony fans in a nutshell.... Only Sony is good and Chinese brands are inferior no matter what

Hah, I've noticed there's a lot of animosity towards Sony lately. I wonder what they've done to invoke the wrath of phone nerds lol

Chinese are offering cheaper, so they just also be the same.... That's his logic.

Reviewers have tested both those phones and found that they are indeed ufa 3.1 speeds not worse than ufs 2.0 as you suggested.
Your argument has no arm and leg.

Same thing goes for midrange phones, those UFS3.1 controllers are third rate stuff. I'm not talking about any particular manufacturer.

Btw I love getting into discussion with you. We have opposite opinions but its a nice well behaved discussion, no personal attacks no childish behavior. Wish everyone could discuss differences in opinion like you and I do without any stress.
