By your logic every phone brighter than Xperia will get burn in... Aha you Sony Boyz don't surprise me one bit

Increasing panel life.

"Also why do Xiaomi and Samsung with 3k panels have almost double the brightness? "

Which is why they are more likely to suffer burn ins. Unless it's the newer displays.

"Tech Nick channel did battery charging test of sub 30W charging flagships like Xperia 1 III vs Galaxy S21 Ultra vs iPhone 12 Pro Max. Go check how slow it is and how much it heats up"

I'll check it out, thanks for telling me

Anonymous, 13 Jul 2021It's just under 1 inch as mentioned in another gsmaren... moreI've already assumed that it is under 1 inch, I've read the article and it doesn't give an exact specification.

"definitely bigger than hmx/hm1 but you are too lazy to read those since you want to desperately assume this will be smaller sensor."

Proof that it's "definitely bigger", because we are working with speculation rn. You can't claim it's definitely bigger without actual evidence. It's not about me being lazy, it's about being realistic, I never made a claim that it's gonna be smaller than the hm1, I just assumed that it's less than 1 inch.

The only phone back then that had a 4mp camera was the HTC one and I don't remember any android phone back then with a 40mp count. Sony was the highest among flagships with its 20MP count. It also had a bigger sensor if I recall which also helped it compared to the HTC. The Lumia 1020 had a 41MP camera sensor, but that had a huge sensor, and it wasn't even a QB sensor and had more than 1.0um sized pixels.

"Though now its moved to pixel binning and sensor shift, Mp amount still increase. Went from 12 to 40 to 48 to 64 to 108mp and will continue. "

This is a different situation because of how pixel binning works, and the sensor size. Not because of purely MP count. We don't know how big this new 200MP sensor is, if it's big enough to house all those pixels without decreasing size too much then good on them.

"There is also difference if you sell a phone that can do 8K or it cannot, no matter how its useful to you right now. Also imagine most cameras cannot do this, its priceless feature for that money, its like pro's haven't got this but you can create memories anywhere using device from your pocket"

If you have a phone that can do 8K video, but you can't view it in 8K it's a pointless feature. You can create memories without 8K video as well.

"Looking again at sony/apple, they are quite laughable to miss such features, its also sad for customers for missing it for years already, again, meaning a lot of time in phone world."

How is it laughable to not have a feature that you can't even make use of? Unless you have an 8K display, then it's different.

cuz it's a 4k screen"

Also why do Xiaomi and Samsung with 3k panels have almost double the brightness? Along with running them at 120hz?

What is the sensor size, because we don't even know that yet. If it's less than 1 inch or the same size as the 108MP sensor, then my point stands.

"Sony with 4k 120hz display that doesn't operate at 4k120."

You can force 4k @120hz.

"It's dimmer than budget Flagships."

cuz it's a 4k screen

"Oh and the 30W fast charging is as slow as Apple with 20W"

vrvly, 13 Jul 2021In case you forgot, Pixel fight already happened in the pas... moreI think 8k is still overkill since an 8k monitor or TV is still expensive, but soon this is going to change of course. Sony said this is the reason why they didn't make any phone with 8k video recording.

Its not about fight of 12mp vs 108mp, its more like who dare to do it right or do it so-so but still sell a mountain of phones because just pure hw is so good / better than last one. There is also difference if you sell a phone that can do 8K or it cannot, no matter how its useful to you right now. Also imagine most cameras cannot do this, its priceless feature for that money, its like pro's haven't got this but you can create memories anywhere using device from your pocket.

Samsung with 108MP camera delivered, so will they deliver with 200mp .
You knowing who scams people with marketing?
Sony with 4k 120hz display that doesn't operate at 4k120. It's dimmer than budget Flagships. Oh and the 30W fast charging is as slow as Apple with 20W

SuuperBaka, 13 Jul 2021"Mirrorless camera have lot of space compared to smart... moreIt's not a tiny sensor.... Don't you get it???

No going back, more pixels are better for photography as after removing noise you are left with more detail, its true also in full size cameras.
Besides better stills and 8K, it removes needs for close tele like 1-5x. I'm also interested how raw shooting will progress, stacked hdr raw is something most full size cameras don't have so its getting closer in quality - also the reason you see more and more people using phones for certain occasions instead of dedicated camera.
Got to say poor sony, so left behind the world of stacking, while others go to wonder which generation.
If its certain that Xiaomi will come with such sensor, there is a little reason to let them steal all the limelight.

I agree but doesn't mean having 200 MP in a tiny sensor provides much benefit since they would have to shrink the pixels more to add all of them in there.

"Samsung knows that what it is doing unlike you armchair experts"

Yes Samsung does know what they are doing, marketing a high MP count for consumers to eat up and it's clearly working with you

Anonymous, 13 Jul 2021Then why you keep harping bout 200mp in this article? I'm pointing out how useless the 200MP is on the phone. It's not "harping", I'm calling out the marketing bs that you're eating up.
