Anonymous, 16 Dec 2016Falls like nokia..but nokia will rise again..so sony also do the same if they are falling..hehheheI'm a big big Nokia fan but it is very unlikely that Nokia will rise again. Unlike some other people I'm not saying that Nokia is now China made. Yes I agree that they will make new phones according to Nokia standards. But what thing differs established brands from Chinese? Camera quality and build quality. But now oneplus, Vivo etc are also rubbing shoulders with likes of apple and htc in precision built and almost all the brands are using Sony sensors, snapdragon processors etc. So only differentiating factor will be the research and development made to the camera, fast charging tech, battery technology, display software. Samsung have best displays,oppo, oneplus have best fast charging technologies, sonys sensors are working best with Googles research. the new Nokia don't even have money to make its own excellent sensors of the past, neither they have some patented fast charging tech, nor they will have better displays than Samsung. They also don't have money to do research in photography to beat the likes of Samsung, apple and Google. They cannot compete with oneplus if they are thinking about value for money excellent flagships. Nor can they compete with xiaomi in Lower midrange and entry level.
Best of luck Nokia.
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2016I like boxy design and you are right people identify it from far and I'm happy with my x it's ... moreYes I too like the aggressive language of the boxy design. And latest one with ALKALEIDO with small plastic window is really beautiful and characteristic. I'm also ok with their bezels but they should make better use of them. Simple back-lit hardware touch controls at bottom and dual stereo speakers. Yes, sonys bezels can fit both at the same time. and I am also ok with side bezels as they make for a sturdier design.

anonymous, 15 Dec 2016Its so ugly you have to hide it on your back.It is gorgeous! I personal is very picky, that's why China phones and Samsung phine and iPhone not my choice.
I choose Sony, it is gorgeous.
Boxy designs is great if it bezelless because the screen is rectangular....just an opinion:-)

Herodroid, 15 Dec 2016sd 820 is a midranger these days. So whats wrong? nobody says this will be a flagship820 midrange? then which is the flagship chipset in Android?!
Tourettes Guy, 15 Dec 2016Best? Better skip 8 and just go to Terabyte category of RAM. If Androids still can't multitask... moreyou can't put 1TB of RAM in anything exceptt a server even if you wanted...
Sajjadfaisal, 15 Dec 2016Yes thats exactly what im saying. Quantity is always welcome if quality is same. example, if a... moreabout the price you are right, SONY is too expensive in most cases for what it offers and that's a big reason why they dont't sell as much as should considering their good phones

Z5p, 15 Dec 2016Sony is too insensitive.... Boxy rectangular, poor sound and huge bezel phones? Look at Huawei... moreIf you are a true Z5P user, tell me honestly, is the 3GB RAM less for any of the app? Does 4GB ones are performing better than Z5? The answer is a big NO. I myself use a Z5 and i can assure you if Sony comes out with 3GB RAM again, it wont lag or stutter.
And boxy? Havent you noticed that Sony has its own identity in design. You can only identify a design precision from far away if its a Sony or an iPhone. Samsung has now adopted Sony's design language since S6 before that, even looking at an S5 used to hurt the eyes. Experiments of Frosted Glass Back then Brushed Metal then ALKALEIDO, now what they have up in their sleeves that'd be unveiled on the 04th of January.
Dont come under peer pressure, a lot of people use Samsung and Apple but i feel very much satisfied while using my Z5 and did i tell you it still becomes a center of attraction on a table full of Galaxies and iPhones.
What if this model is just a midrange,because xz is stil new ,if they want to make a new flagship maybe on next august
btw it still not comfirmed yet,so dont make any speculation
Why not Snapdragon 821? Also, they're using Snapdragon 820 because 835 won't be availalble till summer because Samsung fell behind with 10nm production. So that way no one will be able to use Snapdragon 835 in their phones till August/September.
Fail and super fail. No compact = no thank you. Bye Sony, no wonder you're going out of business. Good riddance.
Claudiu.Lucian, 15 Dec 2016Hide it were? On your back? Like a rucksack? Just like the picture above.
An 820 soc, while others will come with 835 in a couple of months. Sony wants to stay a little player in the smartphone market. I have an S6, and if Sony would make Compact phone with Snap 835, much louder speakers than the horrible quite ones they put in the XZ and X Compact, only than I'd consider buying a Sony phone. Because IPS screen and camera are good already on Sony phones. But they push me away because of these stupid decisions like Snapdragon 820 in 2017.
