gab, 20 Jun 2016im a sony fan, but their current lineup is just ridiculous, even their former lineup is better... moreI own and xperia x and a z5 and i can make a fair comment, the xperia x runs in everyway faster than the z5, the xperia x runs on a snapdragon 650 chipset with 1gb less RAm than the galaxy s7 but still runs games better
your paying for an experience rather than a spec sheet
chancooluk, 20 Jun 2016Actually no, I think you'll find that Sony's version of android comes bundled with a whole hos... morei agree with you on that. anyway absolutely will not buy this.. it's gonna be another rectangular phone for me. Why spend that much?
gab, 20 Jun 2016get your facts straight. sony's UI is the closest one can get to vanilla android without buyin... moreActually no, I think you'll find that Sony's version of android comes bundled with a whole host of crapware. The closest you can get to stock android from a major manufacturer is Motorola, not Sony.

im a sony fan, but their current lineup is just ridiculous, even their former lineup is better. the xperia x has nothing on the m5, the m4 aqua is cheaper and is waterproof (duh) compared to the XA, and the x performance? the z5 is a better value. it's like they took everything that sets them apart from other manufacturers, and threw them out the window.
I've been looking out for a true Z Ultra replacement since the beginning of this year and so far Sony is a million miles away from offering anything close.
For me right now the entire X series is looking like a case of one step forward and two steps back.
If they don't serve up a decent high-end phablet soon, I'll be forced to jump ship to another brand like ASUS.
AnonD-404954, 20 Jun 2016sony is lag with broatwareThe hell man? What you think of Sony, Samsung or some cheap chinese crap?
Omg 27% pure sony fans, and 73% between almost 10 brands sony haters, gsm should switch from Samsung fanboy to sony fanboy, X.S.M ARENA :D
AnonD-442781, 20 Jun 2016What optimisation are you talking about? It certainly wasn't optimised enough to stop your z5 ... moreI'm looking at the (app) loading time, frame rate and memory crash. Sony always win in the same generation, z1 sometimes win next year sumsung, htc phone. Well, I'm not telling this is 100% accurate, you can only know when you run an app that that's using the phone's full potential on graphics, cpu/gpu, memory. Developer can't make an app just for the latest phone or they'll have no market share, my feeling on these is running new app on lowend device and see which is better, I found it just recently, z brand is always quite impressive. It just last longer. Overheating is mainly when s810 reach a certain level of use, I doubt the if phone with s810 doesn't overheating have developed a full use of that chip. I don't know, maybe I just liked the way sony configre the phone. By the way remote play actually sucks, it lag and disconnect all the time, but you can use ps4 controller to play android game on phone which feels quiet good:)
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2016Xperia Z Ultra build quality was so poor (port covers started falling off almost immediately, ... moreZ Ultra are you serious :D, is there any z ultra in markets, i want to buy it and use it as archaeological phone.
Lack of innovation, high pricing, not evolving with the market, betting on their brand name. Are they going to be next Nokia or Blackberry?
