YESSSS, speakerslits like the Z5/Z3+/Z2 and not ugly speakercuts like the Z3, one good forward move in design again.
The Sony fanboyism is on all time high in here. Just don't know why doesn't it carry to market. Here in India Sony entertainment owns most popular TV channels (Sony TV, SAB etc) can't they market their own devices on their channel ps4 is a bestseller, it's TVs are of best quality why can't they do same on phones. You know company messed up when it's TVs have smaller bezels than its phones. As much as I want to buy their phones they are distancing me and several others
People keep comments abt the bezel. Why? The reason the bezel is there is bcus of fingerprint. At least sony did not place the fingerprint at the front and rear which is way too mainstream nowdays. There are rarely phone with side fingerprint like Sony and nextbit
I'm using both S7 edge as well as XZ... but i have found network issues in S7 edge.. even i have upgraded to Nougat... VOLTE works perfectly in XZ than S7...
After a very long gap (C5 ultra)... i Started living my XZ more... especially i love that new Design...
Samsung Phones maybe better in RAMs and Storages..
but when it comes to performance and benchmarks (not talking about scores)
i started Testing with ANTUTU simultaneously in XZ & S7 edge...
XZ runs smooth and fast... S7 EDGE took almost 40 seconds late to load videos...
RAM management is great in both phones..
but Still XZ is better...
* S7 EDGE TITANIUM SILVER... I'M SELLING IT SOON *
Adelog, 09 Feb 2017Sony has a large ugly bezel and equipped with MediaTek. No sure who interested to buy. Samsung has design the S8 with tiny bezel, but it is not looking good, the tiny bezel designs is force the user buying the protector case, so why need tiny bezel to become bulky
Btw, I want to see the S8 drop test, it must be weakeron the top and the bottom bezel.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2017People always have to complain about Sony phones, no matter how good they are, the XZ complete... moreAgree. Just like a destination, we can go there with straight and fast not need to turn around and switchback like the Touch-wiz.
From that image show that,look like a new xperia like having a bezeless a side and bottom,its opposite with mix mix,but it just rumored and unofficial ,so let just read and dont 100% believe it yet
Everyone hates me, 09 Feb 2017Overrated? Lol it's the most useful thing to happen to smartphones. And your crappy 3T is slow... moreYou mean while you playing Pokemon you will download a full movie at the sametime and answer a telephone at the sametime and play the music at the sametime and take a photo at the sametime and open a brower at the sametime...... in that small screen?! You are trolling too much, 3GB ram is enough for phone, because you can't open many too many windows in a small screen, my Xperia flaship can run over 20 apps and some running at the background/multitasking.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2017China is the future, Japan is the past. Just buy Oneplus and never look back...Oneplus still weak, they even can't match with Samsung, and Samsung is lag after their rubbish updates because the bulky touch-wiz use up more ram.
Sony will learn about bezel less in 2020 when most of other do it this year. That's sony way.
I like their square corner but side bezel is something old. Sony please, now trend is thin bezel, don't do like blackberry way (multiple button way).
I'm using XZ and love it but next phone? IDK. I never doubt about sony quality but keep huge bezel is bad.
Cant stay too long, to many fanboy and hater here lol
mir, 09 Feb 2017Because they're just like Nokia in the past. They stopped being competitive and were eventuall... moreSony invent in entertainment including photography audio game etc, and I use the Flagship it is very good. Nokia just can't competitive.
used to be great now sony just continues with their idiology of a great smartphone regardless of what customers want, i.e. ram thats stuck on 3gb for three years now and the high mp cameras that preform poorly in low light even though they have sensors like the 362 and 378 and the large rectangular shape that was awesome four years ago not currently , customers love sony for their build quality and good software and now the software is not being forwarded to z3 rip nougat update for my z3 and the build quality is now not a sony specific quality as we do have many oems making great hardware so i hope sony listens in 2017 thats all
Davood57, 09 Feb 2017What do you mean by that?like other car making companies could catch up with Mercedes these al... moreYes, Sony flagship headphones at USD 2000/GBP 1500/hkd 15,000, flagship in ear monitor xba-z5 at USD600/GBP400/hkd3800
Their flagship Walkman nw-wm1z at USD 4000/GBP 2700/hkd 27500
They sound really awesome as well, but way out my budget,however, I am using their audiophile grade Walkman and earphones, really do sound good
Adelog, 09 Feb 2017Sony has a large ugly bezel and equipped with MediaTek. No sure who interested to buy. but ppl still buy it. mediatek? nothing wrong with it. large bezel only at top and bottom, which is useful when holding the phone in landscape lets say while playing games. many ppl like the bezel, only some gsmfanboy dislike it.
edwooty, 09 Feb 2017I just got to know this company is 'still' manufacturing phones.Good news Sony is pretty stable and going on..bad news you think they will fail? They won't. Sony has a good crowd. Unlike people like you who buy garbage that likely explodes or has absolutely no functionality cough* IPhone cough* Sony adds features that is necessary. Which is why even with 3 gigs of ram it destroyed most phones out there. Now it has 4gb..BRACE YOURSELVES
Everyone hates me, 09 Feb 2017A Chinese fanboy lol. OnePlus can't even update their 5 devices to Nougat quickly while Sony a... moreOnePlus can't even fulfill the demand of customers. One day, potential customers will give up on OnePlus.
