Nick Paschalidis, 10 Sep 2016They use Corning Gorilla Glass.It is listed in their website.Nice try troll.http://www.corning.com/gorillaglass/worldwide/en/full-products-list.html
i'm not trollling...i have used a z1, and i'm still waiting after 3 years for a replacement..
there is an unspecified GG on the sony website for the xz
why are they not specifying it? is it not available on all units??
viveksubhash, 10 Sep 2016i'm not buying another sony until they name their covering glassThey are using Corning Gorilla Glass.It is listed in their website.I think its Gorilla Glass 4 for the XZ but I cant say for sure.
This is definitely not a smart pricing. Dumb Sony keeps high price at launch and when people buy another phone, after few months after realising oh we have poor sales figure, Sony eventually will reduce its price till then it would lose lots of its customers. BTW I am waiting for this crap in India, just to check its price, for people flexible with screen size, I would suggest go for Oneplus 3, honor 8, galaxy s6 edge or iphone SE. Avoid crappy Chinese phones except Huwei, you can trust Huwei.

They use Dragontrail glass which is a cheaper Japanese version of Gorilla glass that is why they do not want to advertise what glass they use.
I really like Sony. I've had M2 for 2+ years, and in those 2 years i've only had 2 problems:
- Phone was randomly restarting. Sent it to get fixed, they flashed a new (same) rom and it was all good (probably corrupted files from software updates i did before that).
- It was ejectint my sim (not recognizing), but after changing carriers and putting a new sim, it works like a charm (sim was probably not cut properly, since it was cut manually (before my eyes)).
I'm planning on switching phones soon (in the next 6-9 months), and i thought i'd go Sammy this time around, but i decided against that after problems my sister had with S7.
She had it for 3-4 months, went to the pool with it, tried to take an underwater picture, water got in and wrecked it. She got a brand new replacement (yes, brand new) that died 19 days later (mobo died). And with this Note 7 fiasco it seems that they have some QC issues (odd since my original android phone, Galaxy ace s5830 (running CM) is still working (just changed its batery...).
I never had problems with my M2 (except thse 2). They never died. The only problem i have is the lack of memory. 8Gb is way too little...
I'm thinking of again going with Sony, had very good experience with them, but we'll see. Their prices are really steep compared to the competition. If Xperia X was 150-200 euros cheaper (it's currently 500 euros), i'd get it, since i really like it.
Only time (and available money) will tell what phone i'll get...
Tl;dr - Sony makes great phones, but they should really work on their marketing and prices. They'd be a lot more popular that way. They're becoming unberable for people like me (you know, i need food to live)...
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2016what quality? cheap plastic?It atleast doesn't explode and gets regular software updates for 2 years or more . My Sony has been working fine for 3 years
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2016overpriced. low res, low grade processor, plastic, no waterproofing. FAIL ! Atleast doesn't S-PLODE
Real market price for this phone is around 250 Euro ( may be a little more). As per specs - it's typical mid-ranger with no water proof and cheap materials ( I suspect very scratch prone). And the fact that this phone is made by Sony (rather than unknown chineese manufacturer) doesn't change this fact and definitely shouldn't add 200 Euro to it's real price...
