Re: When Can XZ Premium Use Full 4K Resolution?

I took a screenshot of homescreen. The resolution of the screenshot is 4k not full hd. So, I think it runs in 4k all the time. But I am not sure.Screenshot_20170628-173924.png

It runs in 4k but only renders a stretched 1080p until 4k content is discovered.

amazon 4k content

Where is it?

 

 

This is a disclamer on the bottom of the sony xperia us site.

 

"*4K HDR content will be available following an update to the Amazon Prime Video app pushed to devices after purchase. Selection of 4K HDR content varies by region". 

 

Nothing was pushed to my device. Help?

Only Sonysvideoapp and Photoapp works/switch with 4K content to 4K Screen.

Not Youtube app. When you play 4K in Youtube, there is not 4k Screen.

Tested with Zeiss Vr One Plus.

 

When i play a 4K Video from Album and put the VR Glasses on, that is Amazing really Whow, best ever. GearVR and all another Systems can go Home.....clearly, without Screendoor.....

 

But the movie app is not sidebyside, how you need for VR :-/

 

Perfekt were, when the Handy give this Screensize when i will and work correctly with the VR apps, or Player Apps.

No it doesnt. I have same feelings when i use my VR glasses. There is no difference between 1080 and 2160p in YouTube app. Useless 4k screen. Its definetely my last Sony phone.
