Browndynamite.., 28 May 2016Z series is deadWRONG. Mr. Mesa (engineer at Sony) very strictly said the Z series is not dead or going away, they are only delaying their next Z flagship:
"The Z series is not going away"
Anonymous, 28 May 2016Both front and rear camera is only good thing on sony smartphones.In fact tehy dont,build quality,performance,screen,and sound and multimedia are best things on sony,at lesat on z series
hadokennnnnnnnnnnnnn, 28 May 2016Sony king of bloatware lolSony socalled bloatware is usefull,if you dont like if buy nexus
So this may be simply a regional or some sort of variant of x performance.
Author does know that Gfx bench have some error with screen size but he doesn't know error also occur in camera megapixel calculations. It always show less megapixel than actual.
Resolution of 5504 x 4128 means same 23mp
Resolution of 4140 x 3120 means same 13mp
I will wait for the X-Premium rather that the X-Performance. I want only premiums like my Z5 Premium but improve the loud speaker. I cannot even be compared to Z2.
Seems like device with a spirit of Z6, its 4K there, in front too. Well they could improve more things like memory to be 64GB for more pricy(performance/premium) variant, or at least memory with 32GB free space. They could also boast with improved processing, new sensors, better screen and so on... note7 will be here soon so they should also come with some competitive device so it won't end like difference between number of Xper. and S7edge fans...
Sony is getting ridiculous these days. Though they are launch new model but still retain it at 5" except for Z5 premium . No wonder they keep on making losses just like HTC. The norm now is between 5.5-6". I think this year is no different than the year before.
