    Samsung and huawei : lets add innovative features like reverse charging and amazing display.
    Nokia: lets add 5 rear cameras

    Misleading, especially the thumb nail, the iPhone x is almost a compact phone and the Xperia 10 plus is probably the biggest phablte.
    Plus too many Samsung, Apple, Huawei…. Fans in the comments.

    I like the overall design direction, I'm rather tired of curved design where everything seems to get spherical. The tall screen is interesting, seems to be designed with split screen in mind which I like.

    I don't know anyone who's had a Sony phone. Not now, not ever. And I don't see them out in public either. Who is buying these things and why does Sony keep making them? I'm genuinely curious.

    Samsung had AMOLED (OLED) HDR 4k display on 2018 models S9 and Note 9. What is unique about Sony display except the aspect ratio. It's a bad aspect ratio, most of the videos you'll have to sacrifice more content if you crop and more black bars if you don't crop.
    Even with one handed mode it looks really to reach the status bar.

    First thought: “WTF Sony!?”
    Second thought: “Hmm… instead of shrinking the bezels just make the screen larger for more content? Interesting.”
    Still it looks awkward.

    Sony doesn't care about the bezel less phones and notches nonsense because we as customers didn't complain about the bezel to force the mobile companies to invent stupid ideas to get rid of it

    No one's talking about the useless 4k resolution?
    Is it just to say that it can show pixels that no one can see and then everyone will reduce the resolution because it drains the battery faster and makes the phone less fast?
