Sony could have been first with Honami,only if they announce it before IFA
But Acer knew this and wanted to be First...

They should have had more internal storage considering the size of 4K videos... Thankfully the microSD cards can go up to 128GB, whenever that gets released.

For acer. better first than last, in a long run. People will say, "Ahh, Acer was the first to install the 4K UHD".

with everyone hyping 4k capture capabilities on smartphones, sony couldn't be any happier. they are trying hard to promote their 4k tvs but many are complaining about the lack of 4k content. with smartphones now able to capture 4k videos, a new revolution in tvs may now commence.

Except that no one can afford this these 4k Tvs yet. I don't really see the point.

full HD LCD tvs used to be very expensive too. just give it time.

Maybe not today, but tomorrow, it is future! Not all people are buying phone for one or two year, some are buying it for three or four years and it will be a future proof for them, people may keep 4K videos for a future.

Useless gimmick. If the phone doesn't have at least 256gb memory then you would record few minutes of 4K video and your 32gb memory will be full(apps, games, photos + few mins of 4K video). An then what? Play a 4K video on a 1080p mobile screen or 1080p tv? This is a gimmick for the next 4-6 years until internal memory increases and until 4K starts becoming something like a standard.

Im sure the device in your profile was once a "gimmick" at one point.....

16GB internal = 1 mins of 4K video recording... lol

Lol with the Nokia Purevie 808 you can record 4k movies via a hack, this was first done a while ago. So sorry to all the Sony fanboys!

4k video recording is useless. takes a lot of space to record a video and 4k moniters and tvs aren't popular. its just a gimmick.

I was hoping Nokia would be first to the 4K mark with their "something big" coming later this year, but kudos to Acer for getting there and pushing the envelope.
