If you're a Sony fan and like Sony phones that's fine but stop acting like it's a Jesus phone lol
What they lack in hardware they compensate through software, nice strategy Sony it'll keep your fans who payed a very hefty sum of money happy for a little while longer lol
Wow! But my unlocked EU Xperia X still runs 6.0, so not any use of that news for me :@
Tourettes Guy, 09 Dec 2016The XZ has SnapDragon 820 while the S7 Edge has Exynos 8890 processor. The XZ also uses eMMc 5... moreIf you talk about speed, it's not game over for apple. They have NVMe storage which is even faster than UFS 2.0 and the Hurricane cores which are faster than new Kryo of SD835, ARM A73 and probably also Exynos 8895 cores which should be ARM A73. Just look at the geekbench single core scores, their architecture is so advanced and also these cores have so a massive physical size, these small Kryo and A73 cores don't have a chance to beat it.

Today updating to 7.0 and I see this and think....wtf...
I can't believe it, they plan starting rolling updates faster than all the others (not owned by google)
Too bad for the old devices, my M5 is stuck with software in desperate need of battery optimization...
Georgio, 09 Dec 2016I have 7.0 on my sony xzI don't on my X Compact. Not even expecting to see it anytime soon.
is this a comment bait?? 7.1.1 brings the much needed restart button??? most third parties already have that..hmm..seems like i took the bait
Vic, 09 Dec 2016They would better first roll our 7.0 on their current line devices... I have 7.0 on my sony xz
This depends on the vendor specific requirements and demand in the market.... Most importantly what the marketing / mgmt team think of their device from the customer perspective. Take example of Chinese brands in smartphone area - "Produce what public demands".
Too little, too late. With cheaper offerings from other brands with the same or better specs and performance, no one in their right mind would buy a Sony phone unless you're a Sony Fanboy.
If true, and if they can pull it off, then it's dam impressive on Sony's part.
Seeing as how I have decided Sony are not quite worth giving up on yet (despite numerous disappointments) and as such have just ordered myself an XZ, this renewed commitment on the software front is welcome news.
Not so welcome are the disruptions to the postal services this time of year, meaning 7.1.1 could arrive before my phone does at this rate :(
Best battery care with Qnovo battery charging technology, best android update and water-proofing...

DenisXD, 09 Dec 2016hardware shity? Premium metal hardware shity? And plastic samsungs ay okay? Bad software? No... moreThey made Waterproof, Metallic or Glass Back, Stereo Speakers etc. long back and still people believe Samsung (with a LOADED UI that slows over time) or iPhone (with little innovations BUT constant Premium prices) are so Good! Wonder when the blindfold disappear
