    maybe they are trying to sell eventually a phone with very specific features, so probably we will have bunch of different custom phones from them that will work on, tv broadcast, hospitals, engineers, graphic designers etc.

    actually, if the phone would be able to stream ALL HDMI Sources .. that is actually some things that would have some demographic (including myself) but that would mean that the HDMI port always works as a video input natively.

      @Gagan Bajwa ok but that's not what i am saying i am talking about the general need that people have form a phone this kind of phone is not necessary or even justified to a normal consumer, this a smartphone for professionals who can use it to its full extent.

    • Gagan Bajwa
      Gagan Bajwa

      @Punit Meena i did bought Sony's phone before when they were not stupid expensive. (Z1 compact- z5). Now it's impossible to buy.

    • Punit Meena

      if you are not going to buy it it is not for you and like the guy said it is not appealing to the general public it is only justified for a narrow target demographic which most people don't fall in.

    Maybe it's because I'm nowhere near that target demographic, but this is a whole heap of "WHY?". If this is essentially just a fancy camera addon, why not just make an actual camera with these features. Sounds like it should be a whole lot cheaper to just put them together.

    The Japanese are one of the few groups who really seem to be holding on to their tradition and culture and that is what is holding them back when it comes to technology. The Chinese are the opposite, they move forward at lightspeed. Koreans are somewhere in between. This is mirrored with their martial arts.

    I'm currently running a XZ3, I can only dream of this phone.

  • MrSpleenboy

    My current phone is a (now 3 year old) Sony Experia XZ1. Unless Sony have fixed the problems with the phone software, I won't buy another Sony Phone... The 2 main problems I've encountered: 1. random times when you use the phone, the screen goes black up until the call ends, and occasionally not even then. This makes it impossible to switch to speaker, or to use the dial pad etc. 2. Again at random times, the microphone and speaker don't pick up anything, unless you switch to speaker mode. It's clear this is a software problem, as on speaker mode, both mic and speaker work fine when in speaker mode, so should work just the same in normal handset mode... They both happen commonly enough that the phone frequently doesn't work as a phone. Since I don't have a land line any more, it's my only phone, which makes these problems doubly annoying. There's no point buying a phone (and yes, its primary purpose is still that of a communications device) that is not fit for purpose.

    Technically brilliant phone, but another reason nobody buys them anymore is software lifetime support. 2 years from launch is what's stated on Sony's website. So buying one now means 12 months of security updates before the phone becomes a security liability. Compared to 3 years for Google, and 4 years for Samsung, and way more for Apple

    all of this people talking about the bezels and camera hahaha. this is what samsung , apple and many other phone companies fed you with. simplifying the word pro with their phone named "pro" even tho it doesnt act aa a "Professional Equipment". this is not made to target people who cares about the style , this phone is built to used BY professionals not by stylish wannabe. and also you people saying that this phone was a dumb move of sony ? oh bro no , you see (i mean if youre not professional), monitors and livestreaming equipments has different brands, smallhd atomos you name it , now sony made an equipment that first eliminate the weight , volume and price, second is that they made it so that sony camera users that are planning to buy a monitor for streaming or for higher resolution image liveview will just buy this phone. THIS IS MADE FOR PROFESSIONAL and not professional wannabe and stylish dude/bitch(cat) wannabe.

    Maybe its not this phone, but the technology in the Experia Pro will become very popular for many creatives. This phone is just be a bit ahead of the market.

    I had the Xperia I ii. But exchanged it because of one glaring fault. I couldn't change the buttons at the bottom the other way around. It's a shame. But because we are not allowed to test drive in a showroom. It was only when I got home that I discovered it. So took it back. Hmm. Shame on you SONY.

    On some Sony cameras you can output to an external monitor while also using the internal one... For example you can run focus peaking on the internal one while using the external one for having a clear imagine for framing... I don't know I don't like to have peaking activated on my main viewfinder...
