I said batterylife could be better
All else...perfectOh,what's that. You finally admit the battery life is crap. Hallelujah 🙌.
Now all you need to do is admit the camera, audio volume, build quality, video recording and price is a joke.
Lex79, 17 Jun 2016In all fairness Qvono tech is not aimed at improving battery life in daily use, it is more to ... moreI know that.
It's the sonyfanboys that kept boasting about it triggered me to say that.
I said it before and I'll say it again, this phone is crap. Would I buy it? Yes, if it launched at 250-300 bucks. But at this price, S7 Edge, S7, hell even S6, not to mention the HTC 10, Mi5, G5, those are all better phones, and most of them are even frikin cheaper!
I've bought the Xperia Z5 Premium when they came out last year, and I Love it, it's the longest I've had one phone in few years, there's nothing there that feels more Premium in my opinion, feels like when IPhone came out with the 4, glass and metal, that was a treat, looking pass that Sony's availability in USA is close to non, which makes consumers either order it from overseas, and those are the loyal customers, and the rest that might of purchase the phone will go with different brand and save them selves a hustle, why is mobile dept calling losses? No wonder, who's the idiot that runs the marketing there.
IPhone can slap a apple on anything and still makes sells, Sony doesn't have that type of fan base, so why bring a new phone with lower specs outside of the processor, get rid of that Premium feel you get from glass, price it like Apple and expect good sales? it's obvious that whoever makes the calls is a clueless bustard, Sony has the technology, best design out there, build the best possible phone you can, make it available, and it will sell I guarantee.
On closer look the camera is quite poor. All those pixels are wasted if you can't pixel peep, that's the whole point of using anything above 12mp.
Looks like camera of the year will be between the g5 and the s7 which have their strengths and weaknesses. Maybe Apple will finally get on top of things and release a decent camera this year, although I wouldn't hold my breath.

I.e. a two year old battery featuring Qvono should be in much better shape than a standard battery.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2016What are you trolls doing here? You're wasting your time with this blog. The only part of the phone that wasn't an absolute fact was the very last statement where he called it a joke.
So stop trolling.
Common sony what happened to you. What you are thinking about yourself now ?
removed 4k recording your wish, removed small apps your wish
pricing like you are using gold in it.
RIP sony. you are killing your fans..
Not really the glowing review that was hoped for, and now when you consider you can get a OnePlus 3 for around £250 less than the X-P, it's relevance is further reduced.
MaxPayne123, 17 Jun 2016The usual story with Sony , great phone but unjustified pricing ! Another failure on Sony's... more100% agreed. sony has to change its pricing strategy or it will slowly and surely fall like nokia
The usual story with Sony , great phone but unjustified pricing !
Another failure on Sony's hands. Their marketing department needs to get their head out of their a**es.

i completely agree with the harsh criticism, but to sony's defence their prices fall a lot quicker than htc or samsung (not lg). for instance in my country a z3+ (or z4) is priced exactly the same as an s5 (a previous gen flagship) and the z5 is no more expensive than a regular s6. of course, lg beats all of them, as a g4 costs just 300 euro.
Very unimpressive. Are Sony really even trying? Upper midrange with poor battery life at best, though very overpriced too.
why they have to bother...
they are out of touch with the market or they just want to milk the brand loyalty of some buyers.
