Nevertheless, point is SONY should include the XA Ultra which was release Sept, 2016 to the public!
Looks promising , especially if we look back , when Sony upgraded their devices to 7.x Nougat compared to the one we saw back in 6.x Marshmallow . Thanks Sony for providing upgrades for those devices , with even XZ1 and XZ1 Compact released Android 8.0 out of the box .
Sony - Samsung war continues as usual. But it won't make any sense. People will buy any phone they won't. For example I will never buy any Samsung phone.

I am so disappointed with my Z5 compactÂ… I bought it because of the long term support and at the end I will end up with hot potato device out of the update table, which I canÂ’t use more than 10 minutesÂ…
Shame on you SonyÂ… Next time no Sony for sure!

XZ premium, XZs, XZ1, XZ1 compact - All have same RAM-buffered camera sensor. How can you tell that RAM-buffered camera is not really a requirement if XZ premium gets XZ1 features?
