Andrew Tan, 25 Aug 2016Possible in plastic, few previous generation of compact all is plastic.on z3 and z5 compact frame is plastic,back is glass,on z5 frosted glass
and what the problem with that,first of all its sony plastic,which is proparly painted,second if that will be like compacts form z series,this will be only compact flagship,and compact phones form z series was only caompact andoid flaghsip,s5 mini or s4 mini was twice less powerfull,and worst in every way then z1c or z3c or z5c...
Davood , 25 Aug 2016By every where you mean Samsung? Which used 90% of plastic resources of the world in it's smar... moreTotally wrong. Did you live in a cave in last 18months?. It isnt 2014 dude. Now Sammy phones are not cheap plastic. Best dual glass design for its flagship, premium dualglass for A-team, premium full metal unibody for C series, and metal framed J5 and above.
IPhone, yes they have huge Bezel Too, Its big bcz it houses circle fingerprint scanner. And they also have premium full metal unibody.
Accept it, king of plastic is now Slowny.
TeamAndroid, 25 Aug 2016he is just a troll who refuses to read what is in front of his eyes... from sony official c... moreNobody readin that bootleg B-ony site lol wait for the final specs to unveil itself otherwise for now it's just another typical plasticy Bezelia phone.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2016So you see form this picture that is plastic,yea right... Same thing smart ones like you did ... moreLOL I think most people can tell the difference between cheap plastic and aluminum, and that B-ony Bezelia phone isn't using aluminum.
pt020, 25 Aug 2016The Compact is known for it smallest bezels,with 70.6% screen-to-body ratio... Your iPhone is 65%.Not an iPhone user, they also have thick juicy bezels so I guess that makes B-ony the iPhone of the Android world when it comes to being the king of bezels and bland-ass rectangular phones lol
Oh and bezels? Stereo speakers & waterproofing are worth a bit of bezel if you ask me.
I do wish they'd go for off-screen capacitive navigation buttons though, that's the one thing they could improve.
Never doubted for a second that this would be outed at IFA. And very surely my next phone as long as battery life is decent/impressive. Price won't even matter as it'll still be great value compared to iTrash and who else has an SD820 squeezed into this size anyway? Will be a worthy replacement for my Z1C.
People are hating the bezels so much. I mean seriously, why should that be a big issue? I can just live with a big bezel smartphone. If you're talking about bezels, iPhone is the king and not Sony. You guys are just jealous because of how superior Sony is. The more you hate the phone, the more it proves how great the device is
Possible in plastic, few previous generation of compact all is plastic.
Those bezels though :( Why won't they just improve on the Xperia Z3 Compact design instead, which wAs so much better than this.
bonymous, 25 Aug 2016Bezels, bezels and cheap plastic everywhere, oh the humanity. So you see form this picture that is plastic,yea right...
Same thing smart ones like you did say form z3 becouse they dont know difference bettwen plastic and aluminium
Give me lovely polycarbonate on my phone anyday! Looks good. Easy to grip. & if it is a shell like the Lumia phones - replaceable too :) My Samsung S7 looks lovely but spends 99.99% of it's time in a case, so why bother making it out of slippery metal?
