2. iPhones, Galaxies, HTC 10.. etc. none have user replaceable batteries.
3. Again wrong. Camera is as good as or better than competition. The " camera software is crap" is a thing of the past, some troll made it up and people like you repeat that, like sheep. XZ has a different camera software compared to older Xperias.
4. Wrong again. I've read many reviews of the XZ, no one complained of any slowdowns or stuttering. They claim the XZ performs just like what you expect from a flagship.
Some always lash out Sony, and that's somewhat understandable considering that its cost-performance is mediocre at best.
But Sony's recent phones are always look better in real than web picture, and damn stabler than other manufacturers (except a couple of blacksheeps though)... it doesn't stutter, and doesn't suffer from unintended app re-loading while multi-tasking. Probably it still has an edge in ram management.
Sony should make the home button appear when called for n disappear when uncalled for. So it could have a larger screen..

Betly, 30 Sep 2016The 2900mAh battery should be taken as disadvantage not as an advantage !also the Plastic Carbonate frame and the Dull-Looking design. lol.
name one thing missing...
2) USER-REPLACEABLE battery
3) that camera (software) is (still) shit! Just look at the pics at 1:1 and see how horrible they are. Are sony's engineers blind bats?
4) it's too damn quiet. How the hell can you hear a ring-tone when out and about in a restaurant or club?
5) The performance is lower than other "flagship-grade"devices.
And what's with that comment on Sony's front camera : Sony gets it. No they don't! This thing is for self absorbed narcistic arseholes!
meh, 30 Sep 2016yes. like tanny hauser. he said xz has great camera. but when one of the users in here noti... moreYeah, it's ridiculous not to view pics on a bigger screen for further inspection. That's when you can really see how good a camera is. There's nothing wrong with doing that, but I can surely understand that most people are happy with just viewing their photos on the phone's own display and that's cool. By the way, even my HTC One M8's pics looked good on it's 5" display, but on a bigger monitor the results were so damn bad - I felt HTC ripped me off and made me sell the phone. :D At least XZ's picture quality is better than that, in my opinion.
Tann Hauser, 30 Sep 2016I dont know where the antenna lies in that phone, if its all metal, without antenna stripes, o... moreomg. That is like amoeba logic. You almost always have signal passing through you irrespective of where the antenna is placed inside the phone.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016So what? It's got better battery life than most of the competition. Stop blindly looking at t... moreNo it's not and the battery life is barely hold on until the afternoon, Most of the apps using Video+4G+Camera+Display, unless you use your phone for calling !
- 3GB of RAM when the competition has almost entirely switched to 4GB or 6GB
Oh please even 2GB is more than anough for a bloody phone.
- FullHD screen resolution not flagship-grade
Yes it is. I'd rather have 60fps under any circumstances than a lousy 15fps on these "flagship-grade" QHD-screens. Not to mention your battery last longer on FHD screens which is more important than being able to brag about QHD. Lets be honest QHD is only useful when using VR-glasses which isn't taking off like everyone expected and for snobs to brag about.
Some people actually need to USE their phone!
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016You really know nothing about phones
You called S7 a full metal phone. That's just too stupid... morethen how about asus?
so it's clear that sony's designers are too stupid. lol.
not only lose to korean in terms of innovation, they also lose to taiwan in terms of design. lol.
b, 30 Sep 2016Even if the XZ camera isn't as good as the rest, it's got the best 'cool factor' with the craz... moreBelieve me, it's as good as or better than the competition when it comes to camera.
As techradar points out its got the fastest autofocus in a smartphone. The shots they took are amazing.
Even the Z5's camera holds up well compared to S7. iPhone cameras meanwhile are the worst. Even the Nexus 6P has got a better camera than the iPhone 7.
Betly, 30 Sep 2016The 2900mAh battery should be taken as disadvantage not as an advantage !So what? It's got better battery life than most of the competition.
Stop blindly looking at the specs.
Even if the XZ camera isn't as good as the rest, it's got the best 'cool factor' with the crazy megapixel counts and abundance of technologies and marketing words.
The 2900mAh battery should be taken as disadvantage not as an advantage !
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016-All flagships has 3000mah + batteries (you are wrong)
-There is too much noise to Sony phone... more- this 2900 is good enough without any chance for exploding or fire.
-yes there is noise but it isn't a bad thing because the angle view is wider than compotitors and more objects and space compressed in photo frame. there is some phone from sony like xperia xa ultra and xperia z3+ that view angle is normal and noise is low . then in reviews don't use manual mode perfectly . they don't set iso and in this tests auto iso was set as 8000!! this high iso cause noise . another thing is pixel blending option on lower resolution like 12 15 or 8 megapixel that make pictures sharper with low noise and high detail against normal 12 15 or 8 mpixel images. dxomark yes said something about noise but still they get best results for them. and you can't see images noise without zoom enough .. even with normal use you can't see noise. that noise in 23 mp resolution in 100% view show images detailed !! in fact it is not a real noise like purple dots from some cameras.
-for ppi more than 300ppi your naked eyes can't see difference anymore. and ppi for this phone is more than 400!! and you get best graphic performance on it look at benchmarks.
-older 3gb xperias keep apps better than 4gb from competitors .. go and watch youtube videos. sony ui is simple and not heavy .. resolution keep fhd !! you know that gpu on soc use main memory unlike pc. but 4gb for marketing is better and there is now difference between cost for 3gb and 4gb for sony.
i am buing one of these when the price goes down, i realy like the hansdet :)
meh, 30 Sep 2016how about iphone and the latest asus flagship? lol.You really know nothing about phones
You called S7 a full metal phone. That's just too stupid.
And iPhones... Well, if you aren't blind you can see the antenna stripes on the back (white colored).
