AnDas, 08 Dec 2015LOL so your rebuttal is to go to a Z Ultra page to read favorable comments on the Z Ultra and ... moreYou just can't face the facts, maybe you haven't got a brain in that head of yours, the most popular devices are now phablets, less and less people are now using tiny, miniscule non existant phones like you do. I will say it again, because nothing is registering in that head of yours, go and take a look at the Z Ultra comments page and you will find so many people are desperate to buy this, and you'll also find that most people who buy the Z Ultra will never go back to a smaller device, same here. You can play with your little toy but most of us want something that we can enjoy using for gaming, movies, browsing etc. When this came out, most of the tech sites were against it but in the end were very impressed with it.
I really don't like some video on YouTube that posted Sony Z5 premium compared to other phone, when Sony got faster than other phone they didn't say It's Sony faster or good one, when the others phone got some faster, they say Sony got behind other phone, and put some bad wallpaper on Sony phone to look awful when compared to others. But Sony is always great by the way the poster jealousy with Sony New Flagship,Z5 premium Haha. I hope Some user don't confused with what was posted on YouTube. Sony is a real smart phone you have to know and got one. The great phone is not look for while Open the phone fastest, or close fastest, or application run fastest, but the system take you along with 3years that it still be great for its smart phone is Sony. Love Sony.
The competitors trolling Sony will release Z6 with different size, they looks like advise people to wait the Z6 and don't buy Z5 series or buy any others, this will make Sony lost sales for the first step, but the every step is important for them. If the Z6 come out, I am very sure the competitors will say the Z7 will release soon after...again n again. Will the competitors stop the stupid marketing strategy?
I am always believed in Sony, and Sony always does a great job on its smart phone, nice design, great camera. I hope Sony doesn't give up your next-generation of smart phone, Don't worry about someone else who said Sony is not good phone or Hot phone, the true smart phone is Sony. Love Sony.
I want to Z6 mini with dual sim standby ; this kind of smartphone will be purchase in this time . please remember it
mas39, 08 Dec 2015Oh by the way, I thought I would annoy you even more, I might even get the 8" Z3 Tablet Compac... moreGood for you but that doesn't affect me nor the vast majority of users that prefer a comfortably sized pocketable phone. Man how many times are you gonna type the word "Z Ultra," we get it you love your precious obese baby lol
mas39, 08 Dec 2015Yet again you have no idea what you are on about, it's GSMarena who mentioned that it's probab... moreLOL so your rebuttal is to go to a Z Ultra page to read favorable comments on the Z Ultra and other behemoth phones, okay that makes sense. And I can say the same thing about why Sony decided to release the 4" Mini which is even SMALLER than their well known Compact series, there is huge demand for more compact phones (didn't you read all the comments I posted or did you deliberately ignore them to maintain your false beliefs?) because people are tired of companies releasing one gargantuan phone after the next. And even GSMA knows that 5.2-5.5" is the sweet spot which is why they didn't hesitate to say it, and Sony always releases their primary flagship Z phone in that range along with several other versions for the less demanding niche market. And I keep mentioning Asians because bigfoot phones are way more popular in their continent than it is here in the west. Again get it through your thick convoluted encrusted skull, not everyone wants or needs a godzilla mega phone and those that do are in the minority, which is why companies are sticking to the current standard. And in almost all scenario the smaller version of the phone outsells the much larger like the iPhone 6/S and the + for example, who btw is releasing a 4" 7C next year.
AnDas, 07 Dec 2015There will always be fans of certain niche phones especially Asian fans like the ones that ove... moreOh by the way, I thought I would annoy you even more, I might even get the 8" Z3 Tablet Compact as my next phone, haven't decided yet, although it will likely be in 2017. At the moment the Z Ultra is doing me just fine and the 6.4" screen is perfect but who knows in maybe 12 to 18 months time I may just go for the larger screen.
AnDas, 07 Dec 2015There will always be fans of certain niche phones especially Asian fans like the ones that ove... moreYet again you have no idea what you are on about, it's GSMarena who mentioned that it's probably the sweet spot, yet again just assuming, no evidence whatsoever. I've said to you before, go and check the Z Ultra comments page and you will find lots of people, (not asians, not sure where you've got that assumption from), who are still desperate to buy the Z Ultra, 2 years after it's release. Another reason why they've also decided on releasing the 5.8" model for next year, more and more people want phablets, people are realising that these other devices are too small for watching movies, doing work, browsing the internet, playing games etc, so it makes sense to have a large phablet as an all in one.
Youshy, 07 Dec 2015PLEASE SONY we need an new design and small bezels you really need to change the square desig... moreThat's why I stay clear from Bony phones cause of its generic square design, sharp corners, huge useless bezels, fragile glass back (the worst material to choose as a back cover) and uber ugly skin (I'd rather prefer to use the much improved TouchWiz UI instead that's how repulsive it is to me.) Don't get me wrong I'm not a hater but until they change these things (which I know they won't without backlash from their dwindling number of loyal fans) they will remain in the back of my mind.
mas39, 07 Dec 2015Read through all the comments and notice how many are getting excited about the Z6 Ultra, I ha... moreLmao I literally read all the comments just now and guess what super bigass liar, there was barely any mentions of the Ultra except for a few on the first page (which is the only page you read and as far as you went before mouthing off I'm certain of it) compared to the vast majority of comments talking positively about the Compact/Mini and smaller phones in general. This only strengthens my own theory and turns yours into hot flaming sh*t lol..here let me paste all of the ones I copied so far after skimming through the comment section quickly:
Xperia Z5 mini with sliding keyboard will be awesome :-D
Now everyone will be happy with the 4 incher and the Ultra!
But i would choose the standard 5.2".
Go SONY! You are no 1 to me because of the waterproof and sd support!
Exited to see z6 mini, if good enough then will buy it or will buy z6c
OK done, keep the 5.2-inch display & I'll keep my money to not waist in such small screen
I WANT 4.8 and 5.0 INCH PHONES.......................................
Yessssss, he return of the 4 inche(r)s at last. Decent 4' had disappered, the only one remaining the old iphone 5s, but next year with 6c it will return too. Both of them will be pricey, but it's a good way for expecting other cheaper but good 4' midrangers. The last one was S3mini, still unrivaled as for 'pocketabilty': thin bezels and roundshaped. Still waiting for its successor, its overall dimensions are the max for me, not a nm more :)
Don't forget that up to 3 years ago the most sold phone on earth was 3.5' iphone 4s and everibody was happy with it. I would like to see that size again on a decent midranger, not those 512MB ram junk.
And last year (2014) the most sold was... guess what... 4' iphone 5s.
While the smaller androds were under par or, like Moto E, so bulky to make irrelevant the screen size.
Wow...when is it coming out!!! ??? I'm about thinking to buy the Z5 compact and already talking about Z6! I've not even digested the 5 yet!
4 inch phone with on-screen buttons? no way!
and they should focus on marketing z5 family first!
z iterations. . mean ugly bezels. . .and horrible interface. . .
At last, a real "MINI" Smartphone!!!
4'' DISPLAY for Z6 mini !!!
...the z6 mini sound realy good....if tey put a smaler camera module they will succed to maket t thiner and so more desireable.
waiting for Z4 mini 4 inch
Finaly a four inch sceen phone with current Android Version. Why do phone manufacturers think pokets and hands got bigger in the last years?
Please keep the specifications same for all the phone except for the screen size.. A 4" inch phone with high end specifications is what many people are looking for..
I like the 4 inch z6 mini with powerful cpu and battery 🔋..
What a predicament, i am near to update to z5 compact. :'(
anu97awesome, 05 Dec 2015 no innovative features huh! camera with cutting edge stabilization and sensor system ( offic... moreThose aren't actual innovations, they're more like serious enhancements to current tech lol
mas39, 05 Dec 2015Keep up the good work Sony, well done, ignore the moaners on here, you make the best phones, n... moreIf they made the best phones they wouldn't be struggling financially and copying Samsung's multiphone strategy, along with keeping Apple's premium pricing structure lol this company has absolutely no clue about what it's doing and releasing 5-6 versions of the same phones smells like serious desperation.
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2015How about they add a 7-incher to make it a total of 6 flagships?Please tell me you were being sarcastic -_- that's a straightup tablet you're asking for and no company has ever even attempted to release a "phone" that large before and I highly highly doubt they ever will lol
mas39, 07 Dec 2015Read through all the comments and notice how many are getting excited about the Z6 Ultra, I ha... moreThere will always be fans of certain niche phones especially Asian fans like the ones that overwhelm this site, but that's not indicative of the overall desire of consumers especially mainstream ones, why do you think Sony is releasing 6 versions this time around including a MUCH smaller Z6 mini lol even they said 5.2" is the ideal size and this is straight from the horse's mouth!! I have to imagine which planet you're on when you even refute and deny official company statements haha And it sucks that the Z6 Ultra doesn't have force touch esque features, just goes to show how much Sony cares about super bigass "phones" they'll probably stop producing it again when they move on to the 7's.

Makes... moreWell, I wasn't aware that the G2 had OIS without protrusion, however, I started looking for videos that show it's camera in action like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVY7nsFsWQU and it looks to me that it does a poor job. Could it be the case that the mobile OIS tech in 2013ish was less advanced and took up less space than today's stabilisation? Perhaps that could explain... I believe that the nexus has it and it has a protrusion too, surprise, surprise.

Makes me wonder if OIS has anything to do with the camera protrusion or with the phone's internal placement/design
