Trenton , 01 Mar 2017The s8 is an s7 with an eye scanner, the iPhone 7 is an iPhone 6 with 3D touch I know, right, it's a trend. But as a long time Sony user, I see them compromising on the features that made their phones distinct from others, just to get into the hyped-features-race-game. Not what they usually did. Give me a badass battery and top-notch build quality with IP68 in a sexy sleek design. If I want gimmicks and toys, I'll buy an LG.
But I get your point, just saying, I would be very unhappy if they started to follow others trends instead of making their own, which they used to do. And again they brought back the glass rear panel, plus now with added near chrome polish finish of the body...It's all nice but people don't like using that. I know, I had the Z1, Z3, Z5 and now with the XZ I am much happier with the final finish and some metal on the back. Glass and chrome is as sexy as it gets to look at, but as far as using the thing goes, it's a nightmare. Same as Glossy plastic on PC and appliances, it's horrid and useless.

Do you have an XZs that you reviewed?http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_x...w-1583p3.php
from phones to DSLRs - have a Sony sensor at their heart. Apple, Samsung, LG, Xiaomi and many, many others use Sony sensors to great effect. Sony Mobile - somehow - never quite managed to nail it.
JIJOK, 01 Mar 2017so ..... there is no more compact ? compact models are realeased in IFA
they are revised yearly and that is what I love about them
Well to answer my own question, I've now had it confirmed that the XZs will not be released in the UK, or Europe for that matter.
I sent an email to a uk based online retailer asking for availability details, they responded saying that they had been provided information by Sony Mobile stating there were no plans as yet for a release in this region, and that as of now only the XZ Premium and the XA1 are confirmed as coming to the UK.
As someone who liked the idea of having an XZ with an improved camera (as I'm not happy with it on the standard XZ) I must say I'm disappointed a little.
A camera bump on an Xperia phone? Dissapointed. Not worth a single gimmick. It's basically an XZ with slowmo.
consumersmartphone, 28 Feb 2017Yes we need better and better, price will rise and grow! But what matters is: spec to price, p... moreHow many? When we work, we take hundred pictures and judge. Then ask yourself which one better and trusted example.
I agree with with you, that irony when Sony supply many sensor then other beat them. But in real life Sony cam performance is great, I'm using S7, XZ, mi 5 and all to work, no fans at all. Buy one for working purpose.
sohail shafayat, 28 Feb 2017I never found Sony in top 5 cameras, xperia XZs is also a mediocreCheck out dxo reviews and ratings.

Rass, 28 Feb 2017Is it real, that its with 960fps camera or it's a mistake?On 720p resolution only I think
Rass, 28 Feb 2017Is it real, that its with 960fps camera or it's a mistake?Real.. sony claims that
Rass, 28 Feb 2017Is it real, that its with 960fps camera or it's a mistake?Its not mistake, it can record 960 fps slow motion videos :D
The more I look into this the more I getting the idea that the XZS is going to be a market specific device.
For instance, I can find nothing to say it's going to be released in the U.K. Both the Carphone Warehouse and Sony own U.K. Mobile site only list pre-registration pages for the XZP and XA1, neither make any mention of the XZS anywhere.
Anyone else seeing anything different?
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2017go to DXOmark Sony is at Second place after Google Pixel!!!And look at the real image samles, how bad they are!
consumersmartphone, 28 Feb 2017Yes we need better and better, price will rise and grow! But what matters is: spec to price, p... moreXZs is comparable to S6, now you compare the specs and price. We have seen XZ's and other Xperia flagship's camera performance, they were never in a top 5. How many examples do you need?
sohail shafayat, 28 Feb 2017I never found Sony in top 5 cameras, xperia XZs is also a mediocreLol, where are you searching, go to Dxomark, Sony has the second place after the Google pixel xl directly until now, please get your facts right.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2017This company never wants to go over 3000 mAh lol the Premium doesn't count it's still not big ... moreAnd yet with lower battery capacity they're giving incredible battery performance, the capacity is not everything, and don't forget, MAKE BELIEVE...
