21:9 CinemaWide™ aspect ratio : compatability

Dear Sony, 

 

Ya'll need to send a press release to the other streaming apps to let them aware there is a phone out in 21:9 or in some cinematic circles 2.00:1 aka 2:1 

 

For example CBS app, I get double black bars; top bottom left right.

 

And of course the obvious social media cropping issues with Snapchat. 

 

Not everyone has caught up with notch pinch to zoom.

 

Especially before the Xperia 1 release is out to iron out the Sony experience.

A few services have already confirmed support for 21:9 (2.370:1) such as Netflix and Amazon, YouTube will support it for content uploaded with that aspect and of course has pinch crop as it does with 2:1/18:9

I imagine as with 18:9, you'll see more content companies support the aspect as time goes on.

Re: 21:9 CinemaWide™ aspect ratio : compatability

Yep it works perfectly with YouTube and Netflix the new 21:9 aspect ratio.

 

YouTube can also play during split screen. Netflix can't splitscreen.

 

Viki splitscreens but doesn't really have a pitch feature like VLIVE (LINE). 

 

CBS app can splitscreen, but can't touch outside the app without pausing also doesn't have a pitch feature. 

 

Perhaps a excel spreadsheet is needed. 😂

 

The point is is a press release could point out these flaws in new Android developed stream apps. Early adpotor to late development ... and the rest to get in line with future streaming multi-tasking demands of users. Or their apps will self-emplode like Snapchat working hard to gain back users. 

 

Like for me watching CBS, Star Trek: Discovery, on mobile gives me double bars, which lowers my immediate view count on release... Or I lag behind waiting to watch it on a laptop.

Re: 21:9 CinemaWide™ aspect ratio : compatability

I think they should patent their game mode on x1 that overclocks cpu and gpu. Otherwise competition will have it soon too.

 

I wonder if there will be vapor / liquid cooling in x1 as it is in p30 pro.

 

Can someone from sony confirm?
