Battery? 2700 mah sealed?!? Are you kidding me? In a year it will be 2200 mah and there would be nothing to do about it.
Design? I haven't seen such huge bezels to non-Sony flagships since 2016.
Sony, give up already! You can't design devices even if your life was depended to it. Oh wait, it already does (Sony mobile department posts abysmal sales) yet they *still* failed.
Mother of bezels!
As always, Sony doesn't know how to design phone bodies, the 5.15 inch xiaomi mi5 is smaller...

For 5.2 display Z5 is suitable indeed

For 5.0 display Newest SONY X smartphones are incredible with wide variety of xhoice and price
Try and think
Have good days:)
To day Sony confirmed that Z series is discontinued w.e.f and X Series will be new line of production. New Soc 820 and all specs upto mark, except thickness and size which them Success.

I don't recall anyone calling Vertu, Gresso Regal or Tag Heuer "low-end"/"mid-range" smart-phones, nevertheless (by your specs-only logic) that's their market.
Why Sony only launched 5" model? There should be 5.5" or 5.7" for the top model at least. I think a lot of peoples are anticipating this. Very disappointed indeed. It seems Sony get it wrong again this time around too.
It look like better phone for watch edm videos nd have nice camera

If the Z series is truly gone there are a couple of things the XP does not have that I wished was still there and was unique to the Z. In my own personal use and opinion.
*Radio, I've always used this as radio stations are still around, maybe not for just music but also local news in a no internet signal location.
*Lanyard slot, It is one of the unique features of the Z seried that all other flagships don't have. I have always used it with a wrist lanyard.
I'm not going to miss the glass back as the new metal looks really nice too. I don't mind if it is glass or metal personally.
