Netflix adds HDR support for the Xperia XZ1

by XB on 4th September 2017

in Applications, Xperia X series


The Sony Xperia XZ Premium was the first smartphone to ship with a 4K HDR-enabled display. The HDR feature is limited to certain apps, including Amazon Prime and Netflix. Other manufacturers have also jumped on board with their own HDR displays recently, most notably with the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

While last week, Sony announced the Xperia XZ1 with its own HDR display. Netflix has updated its support page, confirming that the app now supports HDR playback on all of these devices, in its latest firmware. To stream Netflix in HDR you will need version 5.0 of the Netflix app for Android. The Xperia XZ1 is due to go on sale towards the end of the month.

    Let’s see how long the 2700mAh battery lasts when you ‘Netflix and chill’ on the XZ1 .

    Someone should do a test.

    Iphone 7 has 720p ( HDR) . The lowest. A screen by LG and Sharp.

    It will last all night when you netflix and chill, but you on the other hand probably only last 5 minutes IYKWIM

    Iphone 7 doesn’t use an HDR display. The latest iPads do.

    Who cares?
    There is no any difference on xz premium, here will be no either, definitely “premium” screen is too dimm for even substitute of HDR. On top of it bit rate of these streams is so low that remains soap instead of real 4K. It didn’t even stand next to 4K… Below expectations. Their 4K is something between real 720p – 1080p, enything below this is uacceptable to watch. I will not hurt my eyes with Netflix… No matter fast Internet they offer soap only as most of the streams.

    When it comes to quality only discs matters. UHD blu ray.
    Awaiting my xbox one x, selling boring and underpowered (or bad software treatment with patches?) ps4 pro. Driveclub didn’t even receive fake 4K update that ps4 pro can produce. Forza is coming, even Forza Horizon 3 will get the update for real 4K :) :) :)
