    my friend buy this one after a week of using the screen got green lines

      CptPower, 19 Jul 2022Man apple also gives no charger in the box. Even samsungs w... moreNo, i need that damn charger. I give it to people in need or for the phone that has a faster charging speed so the included charger can give the power it needs.
      E-waste is a false excuse. There's many other things that cause E-waste like non-removable backs. But sure, keep believing the charger brick is the problem.

        CptPower, 19 Jul 2022You clearly have no clue. No phone for 500 brand new have... moreYou're correct. The galaxy a52s has better specs than this one(3.5 mm jack + ip67 >>>>> wireless charging), and you don't need to pay 500 for that, because it's 250$ at Amazon... If you really want to pay 500, pixel 6 was on sale for 499 on prime day; that is a phone which is tier above this no phone

          There is absolutely nothing good about this phone (no pun intended).
          Overpriced for the specs, marketed against far superior phones and offers nothing new or special.
          People defend it aggressively too. Maybe because it looks like an iPhone exact copy? Is that how crApple hypnotise their buyers? Phone shape?
          Did nothing figure out that and sue it?
          Hmmmm *smokes my pipe* This is truly a mystery.

If/when you replace a phone that has a charger, that replaced a phone that had a charger that... so on? I have like 4 chargers, and that's because i gave some phones to members of my family... if not, there would have been even more.

                  Anonymous, 20 Jul 2022Ugly crap, incomplete product, extreme expensive for its specs.Not at all. Nothing wrong with the specs.

                          I completely agree. Given that this phone is not that cheap, they should have provided the charger, at the least. Being a newbie, you dare not to offer the charger! If I had to buy a phone right now, I wouldn't consider this phone just for this reason (I avoided all phones without a charger when I bought my phone the last month).

                            I love that they kept the display flat and completely submerged it in the frame . This is so underrated . A little difference will save your display from hundreds of drops.

                                    Dometalican, 20 Jul 2022*reads the amount of comments for this obvious and unintere... moreAt least Sony is a popular brand, and have:

                                    - have IP 68 rating
                                    - have good quality display with high resolution
                                    - have good camera
                                    - one of recognizable brand
                                    - good build quality

                                    On other hands, this mediocre disco phone dont have:

                                    - no IP 67/68 rating
                                    - no good quality display (dead screen, green tint)
                                    - no small side bezel
                                    - no minimum of 5 years software support
                                    - lack of official store and service center worldwide
                                    - not so popular brand, unlike Samsung or Apple
                                    - lack of good camera image AI-processing
                                    - lack of integrated ecosystem, unlike samsung apple google

                                      you have to suffer, 19 Jul 2022they followed apple's footsteps where they remove the ... moreProblem with this company is that, they wanna be like apple, they wanna overcome oneplus, they wanna be different when come to comparison with all other smartphone makers & they think that they can just put up some disco lights on the back of the phone or bring a new font type or come with stock or near to stock andriod & they will become different 🤣
                                      +
                                      by doing all these things they used cheap quality of phone components and also expect to riseup high and shine out and call them self different and a better alternative 🤣

                                      i had samsung j7 max phone (https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_j7_max-8684.php) which had square rgb/led lights on the back around the camera which also allow user to setup custom light notification based on app notification but it wasnt any exciting.

                                      The only motive which i find over here is to st**l mon*y from consumers by showing off fancy disco lights & calling them different, alternative of iphone and blah blah blah but the fact is it did not even last for 1 week properly -_-

                                      if you wanted to be different & be better alternative, they would'nt have used cheap quality component, they would not have followed footstep of apple & samsung by not providing charger brick in the box.

                                      please nothing Company use some common sense, you would have shine bright, risen up high from the start & wouldve been definitely called different as well as better alternative from all other smarpthone makers (OEM) by offering consumers 3.5 audio jack port, sd card slot, charger brick in the box, making a phone with a very good quality of materials & by add a flagship chipset or atleast you could've used Snapdragon 855 / 870 or either dimentsity 8000 / 8100.... just by adding led lights on back of the phone will not make u different 🤣
