Same here. I still have my xz2 but it will be my last xperia unless they impress my with something new: price, screen, camera, RAM, or even battery! the xz2 is impressive regarding battery life. However after the zx3 all their phones became rubbish in this regard.
Seriously I do agree with everything you mentioned. You nailed it

This XR is no different from the ho-hum X-series alre... moreI feel you, I'm still using Xperia ZL because it was beautifully designed even though they put the front cam at the most ridiculous place ever. I'm totally agree with your opinion on their overpriced phones, I mean their phone lacks of features we actually need to be in that price group even their so called mid-ranger phones are at the same price with flagship phones from chinese company like Meizu or Xiaomi. I'm totally disappointed but still keep my faith with them until this news came. This phone will flop big time, no question about that. Maybe, it's time to move on to another brand.
Art, 09 Aug 2016 Here comes another loser from SONY. This XR is no different from the ho-hum X-series alre... moreI'm SONY'S number one fan but i have to say I agree with you to some extent, SONY the camcorder leader in the world must be abe to give us a superb unbeatable camera but i don't know why they're not doing this,sure it's not the matter of can or can not it's just the matter of wanting and not
Another also-ran ho-hum phone from SONY's brilliant engineering and marketing people. Will it release in the USA, the world's largest and most affluent marketplace? Probably not. Will the US model (if it is released here) have a fingerprint scanner? Probably not. Will it have at least 4GB RAM? No. Will it be loaded with the usual bloat? Yes. Will it be waterproof? Maybe. Will it be loaded with worthless gimmicks and tricks, such as 4K video recording, PlayStation remote control, dinosaurs in the picture? Most likely, yes to all.
SONY, what's the point in bringing out more junk nobody wants? Give us the phone we want and it will sell. You have the big name, now give us the phone to match. And price it to sell, advertise it everywhere, release it everywhere, and back it up with world-class customer support. Otherwise, prepare to fail....again.
Here comes another loser from SONY. This XR is no different from the ho-hum X-series already released, and already flopping. Same ho-hum phone in different clothes. Once again, SONY insists on bringing a knife to a gunfight. No wonder they are getting killed against Apple and Samsung. They simply refuse to give us the smartphone we want. SONY keeps trying to make us choke down their expensive junk. They keep trying to TELL us what we want, instead of listening to their customers.
By now, SONY should have moved on to at least 4GB RAM a long time ago, maybe even 6GB to be the industry leader, but here they are still selling only 3GB in their over-priced high-end phones. Their camera is still not at the top of the game. And the SD820 is now old news and still has overheating problems. The screen is still not bright and clear enough. Why not gives us a super bright OLED display? And the battery is just not competitive.
This new XR phone is OK if priced at around $349, but at SONY's price it will never succeed against Apple and Samsung. It won't even make a dent or even appear as a blip on the radar. Nobody will pay attention to it. At SONY's extremely high price point this new phone should be absolutely top-of-the-line in every single metric with zero compromises and zero excuses. But it's not. It's just not there yet. And SONY why do you insist on loading up your phones with junk bloat...hello! we don't want your bloat. Finally, your phones cost too much because you include too many worthless features nobody cares about, such as 4K video recording which doesn't even work because the SD820 still overheats, PlayStation remote control, and dinosaurs in the picture.
SONY needs to give us the world's best phone. Period. Then advertise the hell out of it in print, TV and internet media, price it to sell, back it up with world class customer support (something SONY knows nothing about), and then release it world-wide and stop ignoring the USA which is the world's biggest and most affluent marketplace. Why do you keep pushing your over-priced also-ran phones in 3rd world countries like India where most people cannot even afford to buy a loaf of bread?
I don't own anything Apple makes, but they are very successful because they do the important things right. They make great products, market them properly, and back them up with the best support in the business. Open your eyes SONY.
Who is running SONY anyway? Hello! Is anybody home? Listen to your customers, please. I used to be a big big fan of everything SONY, but not so much anymore, like millions of other people I suspect.

You're into my personal psychoanalyzing delusions now....
Well, To you and alikes, yes, I can only reply as you alike... :-)
Tann Hauser, 30 Jul 2016LMFAO I expected a delusional reply like this. Its always the same delusions. LOLLol you have no viable comeback so instead you use my own comment against me, nice. Anyway I didn't finish my previous post properly, I meant thanks to its shitty 2700 mAh battery. I provided you with facts, all you and the rest of the delusional Bony fanatics are doing is singing to the Bony choir and praising them for absolutely nothing. It's okay I understand, they're your favorite childhood brand because that's all you had access to or was readily available, they still hella suck at making smartphones tho haha
Tann Hauser, 29 Jul 2016Delusional? Oh, you hurt me with your crap... No really, you do "Sony is dead", "bye bye... moreThere are all troller from the competitors. We giving comment with reasonable, but they don't, they repeat bashing Sony. I am user sometime I am tired to reply them.
I was trying to find at least one shortcoming in SONY Xperia phones for along time but i couldn't find one thing that i could nag about
AnonD-463876, 30 Jul 2016Lol butthurt reaction I expected this. Lookie here mang I didn't even say half the things you'... moreLMFAO

Lookie here mang I didn't even say half the things you're accusing me of saying. Past Xperias always had good specs but they really fell short with their "flagship" XP, which was announced way back in February, plenty of time for the competition to release their superior phones, most of which have at least 4GB of RAM in them lol even the G5 and iPhone 6S+ have larger capacity. And I assume battery life would be subpar thanks to its

No really, you do
"Sony is dead",
"bye bye Sony", (3 years now)
"X Performance is this years Sony flagship", ( actual flag incoming in a month)

"batterylife is lousy"( but some reviewers measure better battery than most competitors including sammy,htc,lg, iphone)
Read up definition of "delusional" in dictionary fella ;-)
Tann Hauser, 29 Jul 2016Bony company phones are good for one thing most cerainly tho... to innerve likes of you. So... moreTrue.. I am willing to pay extra 4-5k to Sony for its performance and quality than any other company. Since I used Sony from 2010 I am very much satisfied and will continue buying them as long as they deliver my needs.
Tann Hauser, 29 Jul 2016Bony company phones are good for one thing most cerainly tho... to innerve likes of you. So... moreAnother delusional Bony Xboneia fanboy, if their phones are so good then why aren't more people taking notice? Why is Bony consistently failing in all aspects from making the same Tic Tac phone every generation to poor marketing and sales numbers? Honestly the only people that care about 'em at all are the Indians and Japanese lol
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2016I guess you believe yourself that you are a resource for millions of people! According to DxOM... moreWell thank you for your great compliment, but i mean like filming not photographing things. It got the best camera but it's not good enough for me because i mostly don't use my camera to make some pictures. Camera2 API is more for filming. Do you know what Camera2 API is? No, watch this and see what it can: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyKgHcgMeFA
