I can see some people hate Sony phones just because it is Sony.
Sony is not perfect, but far better than what they say.
I used Xperia z, Z2, Z3, And C3 all are perfect and the software is very likable.
I bid those haters didn't use Xperia flagships before. Or used one of the lower price Sony and had problems then generalised it to all Xperia phones.
Two friend used Xperia E4 and ZR, were well and good for 18-24 month, then the battery is not working properly. It will die all of a sudden despite fully charged.
However, these battery problems happened also with my Samsung galaxy grand 2012, lenovo tab 2012 and LG L9 2013.
My point is: problems can happen with any mobilephone (even note 7) just chose the phone you are comfortable with and don't hate Sony for its design or pricing (simply don't buy it)
To be honest xperia has its own design and that is good. they differ from other in the market. I like their brick design, because almoast all other has the same shape, except samsung with edge screen. But market want phones without bezels and sony will have to show the phone without bezels. So sony dont wait too long. If XZ1 will have good battery then I will buy it. I own Z2 now and I am very pleased with it. I three years usage, not a single problem.
BigDaddy99, 25 Aug 2017The reason they don't sell much is their ugly design with huge bazel, poor QC, poor camera and... moreDid you think that all people read you comment give a f**k,why so much hating?,did they messing with you grandparent property?or you beloved apple?
Alien , 25 Aug 2017It's called monolithic design and I love it! This is one of the reasons i always buy only Sony... moreAgreed. Monolithic Xperias look cool, classy and unique in todays copycat saturated mobile market.
And, oh, the power within them...
Luxor, 25 Aug 2017Really? Which part of it from 2100? Look the same as last year. Really? It "looks" technologically same to you?
Didnt know people could look into technology just from a photo of a product.
How does one do it exactly?
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2017why insist on brick design sony? if it is rectangular, so it must be very thin to not become a brickIt's called monolithic design and I love it! This is one of the reasons i always buy only Sony phones.
Round cornered phones look cheap af from my point of view.
Not everyone has the same taste as you. Deal with it!

Btw, JDI is laying off 3900 people. And it is gonna switch its Nomi plant to producing OLED. Four years in the red now, really bad. I heard Foxconn would like to acquire them.
Sony, I'm a huge fan but all this camera tech and still you can't shoot in RAW. Do it already!

I only had the Z3 for a short while and i loved it. Its coming down to XZ1 compact and the Pixel 2. Cant wait till specs are confirmed for both devices.
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2017Both sides are wrong. The haters and bezel crazy and you extreme fanboys.
They could trim the... moreOne more "rollin' stone"... But hey, both sides are true!
One side is true because they: take it to love it. The other side is after: fake it to throw it.
ArchitectofInvention, 25 Aug 2017Sony laptop biz is now under VAIO, a separate company from Sony. They sell premium laptops fo... moreVAIO was Sony's laptop brand, like Walkman for portable music player, Handycam for camcorder, CybertShot for camera. Then VAIO brand got sold by Sony.
now VAIO is under Japan Industrial Partners. It doesn't belong to Sony anymore
I agree. I am also a big sony fan & till date has holded , Xperia ZL, Z, Z2, Z3, Z5 currently. But now really fade up with the same design & mediocre Camera performance. I dont know how XZs camera is but really praise they could repeat the camera quality i found with ZL.
I dont know why they simply can not extend the bezeless screen they already implementing in mid ranger like XA1 Ultra in their flagship.
See? Sony wont be changing their design anytime soon, they are not prepared. They are working on other design for next year. Maybe they'll be changing on something big like the integration of "Full Active' screen, dual cam (or not?), fingerprint placement?, I dont know... I just want them to be big again so i wont hesitate to buy phones from them. So keep it all together Sony! you can do it!!!
