Hey Fanboys, the signal Antenna is on the side of the Sony Xperia XZ. NOT on the bottom under the plastic strip.
Check it out at 11.50 minutes in the You Tube video above.

Was that your hard proven documented fact? Because it's mounted in side frame of the handset it won't get scratches easily and I didn't even notice dust collected around the corners of it.
Tann Hauser, 24 Nov 2016Although Im not happy with side frames being polycarbonate, I can understand the logic of it. ... more^This, Signal interference is lessser and stronger pickup on XZ than my wifes S7(over heats and lags too) w/c my wife is getting annoyed with and wanting to swap with my XZ..... Guess I'm gonna return her crappy S7 and change it with the pink XZ.
Guys, before arguing about Xperia xz frames, please go to YouTube and check out what is polycarbonate because its strength is a fabulous thing.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2016youtube's scratch test proves that it is made of plastic.Do you watch carefully, the polycarbonate is very thick, you can see Jerry cut it deep inside, but still can't cut through the frame, it is a solid and thick material used.
Ali Bashir, 23 Nov 2016For not being biased, exclude s7 and G5.If I were you
3.any of g5 and s7 (they're both great in their own terms so no 4th placer here)

[deleted post]Although Im not happy with side frames being polycarbonate, I can understand the logic of it. Better signal and wifi recievement (XZ is best in that regard as seen on yt tests), and lesser wifi microwave radiation factor. Although it is a loss to sturdiness it is a gain to user experience.
Worst in that regard are all metal phones, cause they need plastic covered antenna strips on the back for a decent signal, but you have to be very careful not to scratch or damage those phones, you may loose antena signal.
To examine what I am talking about just try to use wifi on an all metal phone without the back cover.
Apple got the idea and placed them strips on sideframes...., but again prone to damage if your phone drops.
Antenna should indeed be inside the phones frame, as it is on XZ.
Which material should it be covered with is a design choice, but.only polycarbonate, glass and cheramic apply
[deleted post]Every fingerprint scanner button is made of plastic dumbo. It wouldnt work if it were any other material.
Some use glass cover to protect it from scratches because they place it on front or back pannel, which are more prone to wear and tear damage.
Xperias one is nonprotruding and on the side frame, best placement for it not to get scratched in most scenarios, unlike being on the front or the back of the phone.
So dont worry Xperias one will outast even the protected ones, even if not glass protected, just as protection cover for camera lasts cause its not a protruding one.
Its called smart design.
Ali Bashir, 23 Nov 2016Oh yeh, if you hold in your hand a sharp knife and scratched the fingerprint scanner directly ... moreNot about the test is relevan or not, exagregated or not. Its about what we get from that test. We know about its build quality and its materials.
The fingerprint reader is plastic.
And the frame is plastic and easy to break.
The camera lenses is glass not plastic like last year z5P..
Does this phone have an FM radio?
I know GSM says no but several other sites say it does, including carriers in the UK.
I'm not sure if it's market dependant like the LG V20.
Can anyone give me a definitive answer please, many thanks
People make critics on Sony and sometimes they have never had a Xperia on their hands.
I do not understand why people believe price and quality is just about power.. Powerful does not mean better.
When they brought z5 premium,lot of people said that 4K was waste of time and power on a screen smaller than 50 in.
Now s8 may have it, people say it is necessary.
VR glasse will never be a success.
People forget that Xperias have a great quality LCD display, it has the same technologies they use on their tvs. If u do not like colors you can adjust it.
Cameras always have good score, if you do not know the auto mode is only 8 mp. Manual mode is far better than auto.
Stereo sound, upscale for audio files. Other brands bring one front speaker and it works only for calls.
Sony makes the Xperia for a nice, easy and funny experience.
They do not built the device to make gamers happy. That is why they have the PS.
3 gb ram is more than enough to keep at least 60 apps open at same time, who does have 60 apps running.
You can use the way you want, you will never make a z3 ou X "freeze".
X Performance e Xz have all benchmarks score higher than s7 edge. Of course they can do everything well.
In february Sony bring another 5,5 in 4K Xperia, if s8 bring 2k people will say 4k is usefuless.
Ali Bashir, 23 Nov 2016But tann!! I am not hearing about the same complains from note 7 users, do you know why?? ;-)I Guess those havin bigger build flaw problems than innapropriate edge bezels.
Tann Hauser, 23 Nov 2016Nope it is a bezel build problem, indeed the subject of the debate, and only remedied with a l... moreBut tann!! I am not hearing about the same complains from note 7 users, do you know why?? ;-)
Ali Bashir, 23 Nov 2016I don't think so, sony never been a gimmick features manufacturer. 4k mobile screen isnt a gimmick, its just too much for rest of todays tech, CPU, GPU, etc....
Its the future of mobile VR:
