You sir are not being honest! I've had the Z3 since it was released day1 and it heats casually just as much as any other phone. When I keep recording 4k with it it heats faster of course and get the massage that recording 4k will stop if it heats too much, and even when I push it till it stops recording the heat is not beyond an average that can be achieved playing a heavy video game for too long. I previously owned a galaxy S5 and that used to heat more than my Z3.

Yeah that is why there is a Full HD & even 720p version for anyone who don't need 4K display. But for Sony haters who bash Sony for using Full HD display when every other major OEMs put QHD display on their phones, now they can enjoy the sharpest display on a smartphone from Sony.

But pixel noise due to use of subpixels, will be less visible. And that can be seen on QHD panels, even from normal viewing distances. I also hope they managed to shrink the distance between the pixels. At some point we might reach a level where a white background actually looks like its a static white background, completely coloured. At least with QHD screens, and large UHD screens, you still have noise and pixel distance, and you can even tell on moving pictures even when the background is not in a complete colour. It's not all a matter if you can see pixels or jagged edges.

Yeah, they did say that QHD is pointless and this is the reason they released UHD screen, not Qhd screen.

Why do u need so many pixels on your camera? Social media go upto 2mp or 5mp, and the screens are either 2mp (1080p) or 8mp (4k)

They are basically saying that if makes sense to do it because you can. By that same logic, I'm expecting in a year or two to have smartphones certified to 660 feet underwater indefinitely and withstand 200Gs without damage. My watch can do that now, why not my phone?
