While I don't mind Sony phones as they are, I think it has to be agreed that they have their disadvantages (and their marketing department is beyond critique). What I am surprised about the most is how fierce and annoyed their fanbase is towards everyone else. Chill a little. They are phone companies, and while Sony released a lot of decent phones over the years, they are not without faults that you would do yourself a favor if you acknowledged.
sony has improved a lot since xz, i dont know why many people in here are still making fun of it
[deleted post]and you call this PlasticThing Flagship? LOL. Flagship shouldn't use cheap materials, ugly ui, and uotdated big bezel design.
i'm being positive to all brands. except sony.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017- XA and XA Ultra are midrange. Like T2, M2, M4, C3, C4 and C5 were. - X and X Compact ... moreAre you kidding me?! I had no idea it's THAT messed up. And then the generation names will be added to that, with XZ1 being the SECOND generation I assume? Oh God!

Bebe Rexha, 28 Jul 2017Not Sony's problem if you can't afford their products. This is a mainstream serious flagship ... moreQuality..are u joking right ..nowadays all of phone pretty same in terms of hardware chipsets is depend on how u used your own d
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2017Snapdragon 835 and FHD resolution, this is a good combination for performance in a phone. Let's wait for those 2K MFs that will complain about how Sony got 4K for 5.5" but only 1080p for 5.2".
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2017Then what is this XZ1? Shouldn't it be XZ2?
And here you are the one scoring own goals saying... moreXZ1 is the successor first to the XZ, just like how the XA1 succeeded the XA - that's how Sony does their naming scheme, and it's not their problem that you're so stupid to fail to understand that
And I was referring to those people who always bash Sony for not entirely catching their attention to their design. In short, those bezel train riders.
If you can read and understand my 2nd point (which I doubt you could, given you can't even understand Sony's naming scheme), I was explaining how these names won't matter in real life.
If you're off to death with these names, I'll gladly name phones ridiculously, so you can just RIP and finish one of my problems. :)
NotAFanboyy, 28 Jul 2017$860 is ridiculous pricing... Even $700 makes more sense and $650 would be a fair price point.Not Sony's problem if you can't afford their products.
This is a mainstream serious flagship of 2017, and it offers top of the line specification, and it shouldn't be a surprise that it comes for a cost.
$600 to $700 is too generous at its finest, and $800 is just right, given the competitors are a lot more expensive while offering almost no real advantage at all.
Sony is about quality and not cheap. You can buy those alternative budget flagships with technologies of Sony from a decade ago.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2017LOL sony cant use their sensors properly. with better sensor, their camera is always worse tha... moreI didn't ask about that.
Tell that to those who cares because I can slap you in your face with the XZ Premium using those superb still photos that your smartphone can only dream of.
Your comment is a stupid joke lol.
Snapdragon 835 and FHD resolution, this is a good combination for performance in a phone.
5.2", with a 4.6" probably being offered as well, very good for choice.
I really do think they should reduce their top and bottom bezels, at least some, but really nice phones, nonetheless.
bhwyte, 28 Jul 2017hope they get rid of the bezels cos am tired of themdoesnt seem like they will. Its going to be pretty much the same phone on the outside it will just have better internals.
Bebe Rexha, 27 Jul 20171 - People are just lazy AF to differentiate Sony's different models.
XZ is for flagship
XZ ... moreThen what is this XZ1? Shouldn't it be XZ2?
And here you are the one scoring own goals saying Sony phones are not sexy and beautiful. I don't think any previous commenters said anything to that effect.
NotAFanboyy, 28 Jul 2017$860 is ridiculous pricing... Even $700 makes more sense and $650 would be a fair price point.Go buys your on the papers flagships that last less then 1 year! Hehe
