Originally, the two phones were set to become available in early August, but Sony changed its plans at the last moment.

VectorR, 03 Jul 2021""Overheating SD888?" You're being a h... more" that's a good reason to skip all phones with this chipset "

Then why did you not mention others before? At least you're mentioning all phones with the chipset so thats fair.

"other phone makers still have some brains left to not use 4k 120Hz smartphone screen. Because the fact is - nobody see the difference indeed unless being told what it is"

There have been tests done on this and you can notice a difference.

"I do realise that they are cons - ugly, useless hole for collecting dust and not less useless sd card slot. SD card slot is useless the same way as tape cassette player right now. It's just the fact, mate."

Saying SD card is useless the same way as a tape cassette player isn't an actual argument, you still haven't provided a proper reason. Headphone jack provides the best quality and connection for audio.

It is just facts, you're right. The fact that you can't provide an argument

No matter how much these Sony brand boys sell their Xperia on this forum, people stay away from a brand that is on ventilator support

You're being a hypocrite here, this point here can be applied to all manufacturers that use this chipset.""
- that's a good reason to skip all phones with this chipset (excluding true gaming phones with proper cooling systems like ASUS ROG Phone 5),

""4k 120Hz sceen which nobody really needs?"

You do realize these aren't cons right? These are features that other flagships don't have. Please explain how SD card slot is useless, I really like to know.""

So as you might see I do have enough arguments. Sony stuck in the past mate, sorry. But that's okay. Just suck it up, keep your believe and go on buying their "masterpieces" :)!

some folks say faux-4K and completely forgot that most AMOLED produced by samsung if not all have fake resolution too and most of the panels are used by all smartphone brands.
for eg QHD+ used by galaxy is also a faux one it loses about 30% of res so not true QHD+ due to using 2-subpixels with RG-BG instead of 3 subpixels with RGB .
the same applies for FHD+...

Sony announced xperia 1iii in april so, it should have been on sale in may. Not june, not july, not even august or september !

so if you substract the added value of headphone and tidal you are getting what you asked for sub 1000 phone.

You actually don't even have any proper arguments, stay pressed over a phone lmao.

I can't remember when the last time I had such a good laugh. Now I understand why Sony's slogan is "Make. Believe." You have to religiously believe in what you said above to buy their second-grade stuff for insane amount of money.
I certainly will buy Pixel 6 though. Cheers!

I'm going to get the green one! :)
3.5mm jack + SD card slot + 4K display + side fingerprint reader = Just take my money!

Improvements... moreYes, we know your silly denial of facts actual proof of appaling photo quality of camera-centered over $1000 Sony knock-offs. I can provide tons of shitty (apaprently fake) photos from Xperia 1 II this time around. No other brand can beat Sony in this regard - no other smartphone maker sells > $1000 smartphones with such ridiculously bad camera quality. No wonder why it's a "niche" product for nobody ;).

Improvements in 1III are everywhere, from real-time 20fps on ALL [stacked] sensors, telephoto, touch[lock] tracking AF, battery, 120fps OLED (with White Blanace stops), game features (sound, 120fps gameplay recording, gamma levels) and many more. Nobody say you must buy it. Go and buy Pixel.
1III is technological masterpiece.
