Namegohere, 16 May 2022They do have dual front facing speakers...No, the top one is just an earpiece. the whole reason someone would buy a sony in 2022 is for these small unique things which no one else delivers. Sony gotta ensure they have that unique traditional feel, man that's the only thing most people are fan of

I personally think 19:9 is better than 16:9 because of the ease of grip due to narrower width of the phone.

But I really started to dislike that 21:9 aspect ratio because every content on this phone has pillarboxing. There's a reason why manufacturers stopped producing TVs with this weird aspect ratio. An the fact that it's very hard to use with one hand especially the thumb as you mentioned...

              I could seriously consider buying a 10 Mark IV if it was really compact (max 145mm), the headphone jack, OLED screen, memory expansion, waterproofing are certainly arguments that speak to me. The thickness could even be greater to accommodate a decent battery, it's not a problem for the grip. Guaranteed updates equivalent to Samsung's would also be a big plus. The worst thing for Sony is that my S10e will still be updated on the security side thanks to Mainline, so it'll be hard to motivate me while it's still functional, sorry Sony...

                    Xperia 1 series isn't really for me - if I were to pick my next phone from Sony, that would be Xperia 5 series. With that said, a very mediocre telephoto camera, for a phone whose biggest selling point is literally the camera, is a big disappointment indeed. Sony needs to step up with its software update policy too, as "more than one OS update" is hardly suffcient for any phone that costs 1.6K.

                    Xperia 10 IV is a decent lower midranger which was unfortunately priced way too high for what it offers, outside its fantastic battery life. It's simply not a good buy for almost anyone at the current price, IMO.

                      i don't know man why can't they give dual front facing stereo speakers when they go with bezels.
                      plus whats stopping them from an esim solution, which enables us to have dual sims along with sd card slot.
                      these two are a must for me to buy, refresh rate and brightness i can still tolerate.

A Razer phone 3 with bigger battery, headphone jack, added telephoto cam, 5G with more bands, and 12GB/256GB while retaining the microSD card, Display, and solid cooling would have been nice.

                              The problem with the 10 IV is the price. Its way too high for what it is. It reminds me of the price of the first 10/10 Plus, which was also high and they were DOA.

                                The aspect ratio doesn't suit me. I prefer 16:9 or close to that.

                                        USB 2.0 used by 2016 flagships.
                                        IP00, even a 2011 xperia has higher rating.
                                        Worst android skin even, full of bugs ads and 3rd party apps.
                                        Two useless cameras (13 and 48mm), and the main performs worse than mi11.
                                        Hottest phone with 8g1.
                                        Charging do not reach 120W advertised, but does reach near 60 celsius while charging.
                                        Useless curved screen.
                                        No jack, no sd slot.
                                        No zoom camera, because they do not know how to make one.
