Flashback: the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium was the first ever smartphone with a 4K display

14 November 2021
However, Sony was maximizing the wrong thing - high refresh rate, not high resolution was the way forward for flagships.

BBK is a private company, and I don't think in China they are legally required to publicise their financial statements - hence no document regarding their financial performance/status is available for us.

"looks photos of reviews and OP photos make scenes look like wax"
GSMArena's latest long-term review says otherwise.

There is something about the 4k 60Hz display and even 120Hz, even my 3090 can barely do that let alone a smartphone. Aside from that, nope, I can hardly tell anything above 1080, or even 60Hz for that reason.

And you don't have to tweak it. There's just a simple option to select. Nice try though.

Sony posts will fill with more comments 😄

Not even counting midrange CPU, when other had SD800.

Samsung sells well because they know how important is ADVERTISEMENT.
Sport channels here easily show ad of S21 series every 20 min.
Not even counting ads of TVs and appliences.

I have never seen any ad of sony on tv besides playstation in my whole life.
How do you expect people to buy if they do not know product exists?
