I don't want to offend anybody, but what is the difference between this and the predecessor??
Sony should change their philosophy already. Same old, boring design. Specs-wise is not better than for example the G6, which is not the newest smart phone.
For example Sony should come up with a 3x optical zoom, shock resistant device, and their will shock their rivals a little bit.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 31 Aug 2017Yes. For those complaining for the small battery, think twice. Other good smartphone companies... moreI had a sony XZ premium though and worked for Sony, but the battery never lasted me a full day even on stamina mode.
There is nothing wrong with sony's design but now need a change!!! Or go with same design with least possible bezels.
Are sony engineers bunch of zombies?? Why do they keep on making same looking phones? I mean come on..... They look the same

Care to show me where is Sony's legendary optimization which you are speaking of, because I am not able see any optimization out of the ordinary.
Also if you think software can completely fill the gap made by hardware then you couldn't be wrong any more.
There's no way I'd pay $799 for a phone with 2700 mAh battery life. Imagine how much the battery replacement will cost? Let me guess $150 -$200. I'm officially done with Sony.
Sony produces most ugliest phones with even uglier UI. Who will buy this?

Other good smartphone companies are also using smaller batteries compared to last time, mainly because current chipsets are much more efficient and faster. Most of the time these people who complain the battery size are the ones who use a lot. These people need to understand that even if it have a very big battery, it is still not going to improve their battery life since they use it a lot
willboyce, 31 Aug 2017will be in my pocket I wish the compact version in my pocket!
MitjaSLO, 31 Aug 2017Batetry 2700mah .. no thank you.Sony has the best android optimization in the smartphone business. A 2700 mAh battery at Sony it's equivalent at 4000 mAh at Oppo's optimization. So that is not an issue for those who knows Sony.
I was truly excited when i heard that the xz1 will be having more battery than the xzs.. But now its already here.. Kinda disappointed about it.. Smallish battery.. Even the xzp struggling to compete with s8.. But now 2700mah on xz1? . Camera is full of useless features.. 3d scan? Who needs that.. I want a normal smartphone camera with good quality..
Its almost same design sony, at least please use dedicated microSD slot not hybrid sim tray! Duhh..
Taddy, 27 Aug 2017I love sony phones...but design juz dont change...why!!!curve the edges at least...pleaseeeee!... moreyeah bet your right sony need to improved the design I LOVE YOU SONY but the design its a boxy phone felts like 1st appearance looks like a wallet
I don't understand why Sony has dropped the support for FM radio.
Last Sony phone I bought was the Z3 Compact. I guess I'll keep hanging onto it for backup.
