It's actually quite cheaper than it's competition, UNLOCKED by default that can be used with any network....
Haters gotta Hate....
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2016Just letting everyone know, this is the reason Sony disables the fingerprint scanner in the US... moreThey can legally enable it, if they pay.
But again this is low cost flsgship. They make the cost as low as possible, and sell it as high as possible.
Repotted, 23 Sep 2016They're judging the battery purely by mAH, which is incredibly inaccurate, proven by iPhones.Xperias run on iOS now?! Look at Sony's battery endurance ratings they're atrocious.
"recommended price is $699.99," how about I recommend Sony to rethink their entire nutty pricing structure haha
Price ain't bad, what is not as good as other flagships ? Back camera soft corners have been going on for quite some time now and all Sony models this year have very mediocre battery life quad hd or not ain't a big deal for me, but certainly x compact is a joke considering water resistance is gone as well as flagship processor, xl is just another x performance with a laser and 200 mah on top yaaay Hahahah I can't see Sony succeeding here on any of the latest devices my z3 speaks for the quality but that's all what's left really
Niall, 23 Sep 2016They should include freebies like Europe and TaiwanNope just two things actually headphones and fast charger that's all, considering it's supposed to be a flagship at a flagship price is that too hard to do really?
Decent price to buy. Who buy Sony they pay for quality.
Samsung fans shut up and don't troll here.
Because who buy Sony never look back to laggy Samsung...

TeamAndroid, 23 Sep 2016argument would be valid if it was from someone else , got it ? he is samsung fanboy constantly... moreThey're judging the battery purely by mAH, which is incredibly inaccurate, proven by iPhones.
jossnunz, 23 Sep 2016Hey man his argument is valid. No fingerprint scanner and a subpar battery life is really bad ... moreargument would be valid if it was from someone else , got it ? he is samsung fanboy constantly posing negative comments on sony pages . so that's the reason why I responded to him that way .
I wasn't justifing the price , but it's fine by me and in line with other flagships .
no fingerprint scanner ? well that's the issue only if you are from US , and I'm not ;)
''subpar battery life'' we know nothing about battery life for this phone yet , are you maybe trolling ?
TeamAndroid, 23 Sep 2016as samsung fanboy you wouldn't buy it anyway :D now what issue you have with 1080p ? it's b... moreHey man his argument is valid. No fingerprint scanner and a subpar battery life is really bad for a phone with that price.
AMR M., 23 Sep 2016This is the only 'flagship' with 3gb ram, the only 'flagship'with less than 3000 mAh battery a... moreYou are WRONG at both claims regarding RAM and battery and they where giving fast charger 3.0 with x performance , so they could give it with XZ too , don't jump to conclusions.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2016Just letting everyone know, this is the reason Sony disables the fingerprint scanner in the US... moreWell, although is patented by HP then how about Nextbit Robin? It also feature fingerprint scanner on power button. Sony just like Slowpoke.
I think everyone should go back to Sony. SONY is the real great smart phone for the world and for everyone to use. Love SONY.
This is the only 'flagship' with 3gb ram, the only 'flagship'with less than 3000 mAh battery and for sure the only flagship that won't come with a fast charger included, in fact you should be thrilled they are throwing in some headphones in some markets, so this is the flagship for you, if you're that married to Sony haha
KingSingh, 23 Sep 2016Wow, this makes a ton of sense, well that explains it.Yeah - but it would be nice if Sony decided to place it somewhere else or contact HP about it instead of basically giving up on the US market.
