Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017Sells like it hasn't changed much since I bought my not-so-good-and-overpriced M4 Aqua. Still ... moreIm my country we got M4 16GB also dual sim.
Helio P20 is same level.of S625.
Almost as powerful as 801.
Great sony manage slim down choice, it was c,e,l,m, p,t, z almost full alphabet series but now is simple: z related flagship, a to entry to mid, but the name is more complicated: xz, xzs, xz1 compaq, xa1 ultra hello? Make it simple pls
The naming strategy may be a little confusing, but I agree, this device will sell greater than it's bigger brothers. Finally, a much generous phone (except perhaps with the chipset or a little less bezel.)
why sony?, 01 Sep 2017I don't remember there being an XA Plus. Sony urgently needs to reexamine their naming strateg... moreIf you watch the Neon Genesis Evangelion the first EVA is name eva00 and second is eva01, so it is just a name for it generations.
I don't remember there being an XA Plus. Sony urgently needs to reexamine their naming strategy. So all the ''1" models are supposed to be the first or second generation?
I hope Sony adopts bezel-less designs sooner rather than later.
Sells like it hasn't changed much since I bought my not-so-good-and-overpriced M4 Aqua. Still a plastic back which scratches when looking at it, still that bad bottom speaker even though there would have been room for dual front facing speakers, still huge bezels, still just 1 major update (which will maybe mean an update from 7.1 to 8.0 or what?), still way underpowered chipset. Only things that got better is the fingerprint reader, metal frame and high-end camera which will hopefully not be slow af and look like a 2MP potatoe shooter. And enough internal storage (where the SD card will hopefully be configurable as internal, which was off to force people to upgrade their 8GB M4 Aqua to a newer model). And an acceptable battery which doesn't need 4 hours to be charged. But water resistance seems to be gone. So you can clearly see how Sony is cutting back to make people buy the flagship
Anyway, I would never ever buy a mid range phone, especially from big companies which are just making phones which look like their high end obeys, but are really cheap internally (Galaxy A, LG Q, HTC Desire, ...) the only different one is Apple, because their SE contains a little bit older high-end high-quality tech, which is something totally different. The Xperia X also wasn't that bad if it was priced more reasonable.
", yet arguably more durable and scuff-resistant than a metal and glass setup"
Wrong, plastic is the worst material you can use if you don't care about removable battery (which isn't the case here)
