        It is innovation because the camera is the first to have its own ram making it speedier and of course capable of taking such slow motion pictures its a smartphone first

          This is still, not an innovation…
          If taking faster photos or better quality photos are innovations then All CPU’s are innovations. Because SD 801 is better than 800 and 805 and better than 801 and 808 is better than 801 and 810 is better “or cooks better” than 808″ and so on.
          And all the screen resolutions are better than the previous one..
          And all newer cameras sensors are better than the previous once…
          Yes I am not saying what they did is not great, but what I am saying is, it is not innovation!
          They improved the camera and so many more things and tbh I am a big fan of Sony, LG and Xiaomi.
          And I am a fan of Sony and Xiaomi for the reason which is, they make a good quality phone with solid specs. And I like LG for their innovation, like the back button you can control the volume and it is a finger print and power button… And their crappy failure madualr LG G5 modular design..
          Please look at Google’s Project Ara and tell me do you consider this or the better low light camera an innovation.
          Yes I am aware Ara is not available yet, but I am just saying.

            Yes cpus and screens are innovations in themselves having new architecture etc this is the definition of innovate:

            make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products.

            Youve over simplified what this Sony camera has done its not just a faster camera it is brand new never before created camera architecture similar just like how dual pixel auto focus is innovative so is having a camera with its own ram

    4GB Ram phone wins the best smartphone award? Is this a joke?
    8GB or go home. Also, they haven’t mentioned the AnTuTu scores anywhere, stupid dolts.
