pika2000, 10 Oct 2016Again, Sony hit the mark. Charging more, milk their own fanboys, awesome margin. Comments like... moreIndeed i support their highest per unit profit share. When Apple does it, its their style but when Sony does it, people question. Well yes i am proud that i have been their customer for as good as 11 years now since Sony Ericsson days and i have never seen any quality shortfall in their products be it phones, TVs, laptops, portable gadgets etc. I dont want a cheap Chinese phone which will ditch me by the end of the year instead i'd pay a couple hundred bucks more for a premium device.
Its only me who vote "Buying It" but dont have a enough money to buy Xperia XZ? -_-

I have, from owning the Arc, Z1, C4, no more. To me, the Sony brand means nothing as their level of competence is the same as any other OEMs. I'm not paying a premium for a Sony.
But good for you for believing in Sony. They are profitable now (guess where those profits come from). I'm not buying anymore Sony phones, but I do acknowledge that they have a great business strategy, by focusing on premium and having their fanboys pay more.
Tann Hauser, 10 Oct 2016Sony is charging a reasonable enough price for best performing and most stable android device ... moreSony delivers on software? LOL. Talk about denial, but that behavior is what Sony managed to take advantage of, by having the fanboys pay more and believing they get something more. In the end, it is great for Sony Mobile business. They have generated profit now. Aren't you glad you are giving more money for your beloved company? :D

I'm not criticizing Sony by the way, they found a smart business strategy.
pika2000, 10 Oct 2016Sony is charging more for less.
Less spec, less support, less service.
But again, it's great... moreSony is charging a reasonable enough price for best performing and most stable android device atm.
One who is not intetested in nonsense comments can easily go check it on yt revs.
When buying a device your not paying for specs only, but software too.
And Sony most certainly delivers.

Iphone is fast crap, thats all....
No 3.5mm, no usb otg support, no full nfc and wifi connectivity, no homescreens, no widgets, no expendable storage,, no dualsim option, mediocre camera, no real stereo speakers, no 24bit sound, no stereo sound recording.
What good is its speed when the phone is....a joke to begin with?!

What is less and what is more can you please explain? For me, 'more' is fast, snappy phone with a long (2 day) battery with a really nice camera and not to forget a design which turns head and above all, no explosive stuff but quality. They charge you for quality, my 3 year old Xperia SP (now my secondary phone) still going strong and its battery still lives the whole day easily while my friend's S4's battery got exhausted this year. This is why i love to pay them, im buying quality and experience i love, im not paying them to buy a 'fear of explosion'. Currently i am using Z5 which is everything i paid for and i dont feel that they took more money from me as this price i paid was flagship level and if you are going for a flagship, you are paying the right (not more) price.

The prospect of this phone for Sony is the higher margin for less cost. Sony is smart. They figured out that their fanboys are willing to pay more for a meh product just because of the brand, so they are milking them as much as they can.
Not a bad strategy. Although I'm not buying anything Sony anymore, kudos to Sony for figuring out that strategy.
It's just a bit of fun, I was referring to the iPhone 7, my bad :-(
A 5.5 display that's full HD, WOW, welcome to 2014 ! You must be so happy
How much more will you be impressed with the iPhone 8 and a Samsung display?

GSM readers are self-selected for being in-the-know, so even if most respondents like the XZ, it doesn't say much for the smartphone's prospects. The reason being, the vast majority of consumers (especially in North America) don't even know that Sony makes smartphones, let alone that the XZ was just released.
This is Sony's problem. It refuses to advertise or promote its phones, like getting carrier support or even running ads. So Sony isn't on anyone's radar screens.
