sothickny, 07 Jan 2017Sure. Because sony is not the top 10. China phones are better than sony lol.BTW I am China for few years now and China's best smartphone brand is Huawei without a doubt, But I compared Huawei mate 9 and my XZ, back cam is more sharp and color accurate on XZ, front cam mate 9 is high vibrant and so much white image. XZ sharp and very accurate colors from front cam either. Performance wise both are almost same. But curvy back of mate 9 doesn't let phone keep on table and use by one hand. No idea you are talking about which Chinese phone, better than XZ.
[deleted post]Funny thing is always a new sony hater or troll appear when an old one goes silent, But anyway sony fans will be there always, I am here for my XZ and always on Sony's side. Lex how is the new performance...?
mischa, 09 Jan 2017I'm still choosing between Z3+, Z5, XZ, S6 Edge and S7 Edge. Advise me which phone to buy.
... moreYou quite correct about Z3+, Z5 and S6...S6 has no memory card slot either. What about the S7?
Sony XZ has stereo speakers, but a bit low on volume while S7 has more volume but no stereo speakers...Both are excellent phones.
Remember that your in a Sony forum, so most will tell you to buy a Sony.
I'm still choosing between Z3+, Z5, XZ, S6 Edge and S7 Edge. Advise me which phone to buy.
S7 Edge could have been perfect but I read that a broken tempered glass is its common issue. Also it's very expensive for now so it might take several more months for me to be able to purchase it.
S6 Edge has short battery life, and not water-resistant but is within my budget.
Z3+ has overheating issue.
Z5 also still has overheating issue.
XZ seems perfect for me but it's still pricey at the moment. I really like the design of this phone especially the silver one. It's beautiful. There's nothing like it.
Tann Hauser, 08 Jan 2017Tati, where are the rest of flagships? You numbered only 4. Oh yeah, all under XZ there.... ... moreDo you own a Sony Xperia XZ ? As I see you here every day trying to police other peoples comments. You try to police different views to your own. You realize this is a public forum and different people have different views.
This phone is great in any way. People saying this phone overheat are retarded. Sometimes I play games for 7 hours straight and I don't feel heat at all. On the z3+ the phone almost caught fire no joke and the z5 is Okey. But this does not overheat at all. Maybe in 4k recording but I never use the record function ever. So I don't know about that. It's an amazing phone far better then the past phones. Z5/premium was good the rest after that x, xa or whatever was not so good, x performance is almost the same as this but I like the design and feel of xz better. Yes this phone is not cheap but worth the money as an flagship phone. BTW I got it for half the price with a 1 year contract. So I got a real nice deal :)

[deleted post]They'd be irrelevant in relation the point anyhow. Go to Flickr and type in S7 photos or HTC10 or G5, Moto Z, or basically any device you can think of and just look at some of the results.
Put a camera, any camera in a good photographers hands and watch what happens....
It's entirely subjective to just link to some random pictures (or attempt to at least) and then try to claim some kind of irrefutable victory of point.
The XZ doesn't have a bad camera, no flagship phone released in 2016 did, the tech is just too mature now. Though whilst every smartphone camera has its strengths and weaknesses, some are overall just better than others and it's just not the case (as the fanboys crave you to believe) that the XZ is the best.
[deleted post]Tati, where are the rest of flagships?
You numbered only 4.
Oh yeah, all under XZ there....
Where is X Performance tati?
Oh yeah, right under pixel right, above s7 and htc10 right?

[deleted post]Loooool, he is using screen recording and camera in the same time, this smartphone is truly a beast, what an evidence XD.
And consider after updates it will better and better, z3+ was able to record 4k for only 5 min, now it can record for 30 min..

How?

Ali Bashir, 07 Jan 2017Well x performance in the second place dude :DHere are the dxomark results for Sony XZ...Current flagship phone, 2016
Google Pixel = 89,
S7 edge = 88,
HTC 10 = 88,
XZ = 87
Somes quotes about XZ photography from dxomark...Enjoy Mr Dude...
Loss of sharpness in the corners of the image compared to the center.
Details are lost in low-contrast areas, with coarse luminance noise visible.
In high-contrast scenes, details are lost in both highlight and shadow regions.
No. I'm not. I actually want to buy this phone. I really like its design. It's elegant and unique unlike the rest which are merely copies of each other. I'm just pissed at how expensive it is for a 1080p phone.
