Some people think if a phone has not any bazles is more beauty!!!! Why the brains size going to small sizes

I'm SURE XZ doesn't offer a thing over Mi5 or Oneplus 3T for double price.
RaghavaZ, 18 Jan 2017Buddy i think you avoid news which go against Sony. Haven't you heard about screen self cracki... moreHaven't you heard about self bending iphone 6 or self detonate Note 7, self crack camera lens of military V20(refer jerry rig), cloth speaker grill of Pixel that self tear.
Every company have an issue bro.. Samsung worst(there also s6 and s7 that reportedly caught fire)
Those who say the bezel is unforgivable because they never bothered to hold and fell previous Sony XA at all and hating just because their favourite company does not offer what other company did.
Tourettes Guy, 18 Jan 2017No they don't. Well I guess every child really don't like Sony's design, so I'll pass it
So... moreBuddy i think you avoid news which go against Sony. Haven't you heard about screen self cracking issue faced by Z5 Compact and Z5 customers all over the world? Which Sony didn't acknowledge the issue at first. Even you can find lot of Z5 and Z5 compact owners complaining about their phones' screen getting cracks without any drop/hit. What kind of durability you are talking about? Glass, no matter which brand, always breaks now or later depending upon its thickness. The durability kind of self-cracking screens?

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017bye bye apple and samsung? lol. haahaaa. are you "xzzzzzzzzzzzzz..."(read: "sleeping") ? wakeup.Oh, you afraid because Sony is focusing now on marketing and releasing superior products to Samsung and Apple? No need to remind me, Sony is always better than anybody else. Wake up? Maybe you should, because Apple is struggling to sell their iCrap 7 & 7 Plus everywhere, and Samsung got a huge investment loss after their grenade (Note 7) was discontinued. Sony, on the other hand, sold more units than other competitors like Google and LG did
Gary5, 18 Jan 2017People would love to buy a Sony phone over any Chinese brand for its brand value even if they ... moreIt's the quality you're paying with. It's not worth comparing a cheap chinese phone to a high quality branded Sony phone. An Xperia Z2, launched in JellyBean, received Marshmallow update, and it's supposed to get Nougat, ONLY IF Google enabled the Vulkan API drivers for SD800/801 SoCs. Name a single chinese phone that can do that

lol. haahaaa. are you "xzzzzzzzzzzzzz..."(read: "sleeping") ? wakeup.
Aspros, 18 Jan 2017Omg, those huuuge bezels!! Sony has no excuse for that, too huge for stereo speakers and wate... moreSo I want to see you make a phone with all-screen body and can accomodate stereo front speakers. No one is going to use external speaker outside, but it doesn't mean it shouldn't be there
xxt, 18 Jan 2017Yeah, VERY good quality glass, it's so durable that it cracks itself.Like Samsung and Apple never suffered from them, even worse actually lol
xxt, 18 Jan 2017Yeah, VERY good quality glass, it's so durable that it cracks itself.lol. So True.
ren122, 18 Jan 2017you speak the truth mate. Everyone seems to go anal negative when it comes to sony, but will g... moreDamn! Thank God there is still some intelligent people like you existing. Sony is definitely a very underrated phone company in the world. They deserve more praise than Samsung or Apple gets, and I don't even think both of them deserve them at all really.
While I do agree that the G5 looks crap, the Pixel still is just nowhere near a "decent" designed phone compared to Sony's. An XZ beside a Pixel XL is like a phone from 2017(XZ) beside a phone from 1990(Pixel XL).
Yes, they are. People in the past were talking nonsense like "Waterproof? Who's going to use their phone underwater anyways?" And now it's becoming a must for flagship standards. Sony had glass when Samsung had plastic, then Sony had aluminum mefal when Samsung had glass. Soon, Samsung will follow Sony once again.
The XZ definitely looks darn beautiful. Forest Blue looks amazing, but I like Mineral Black more, but Platinum looks the most premium. The Mineral Black sometimes turns Brown and sometimes Purple, so you get 3 colors in one color, how amazing is that? And Apple got this stupid Jet Black to attract more people's fingerprint at the back for thieves to unlock their phone. Do I even have to mention the headphone jack? Nevermind Apple fanboys will be triggered. Samsung's Coral Blue S7 and S7 Edge looked like a toy of a child. The auto-detonate feature is definitely useful ONLY in military camps.
There's no such perfect phone as the XZ. Where do you get a phone with dual front-facing stereo speakers and waterproofing at the same time? IPhone 7 and 7 Plus don't even come close. Even Samsung and Apple are now having stereo speakers, AGAIN something Sony already have in the past. Dual camera is a pure gimmick. IPhone 7 Plus dual camera loses to the XZ single camera. Hi-Res audio is a huge separating factor for the XZ that no one ever sees. A camera comparison of the iPhone 7 rear camera and XZ front camera would be a challenging fight for Apple lol. EIS, another thing that everyone is now copying. The Pixel and Pixel XL have it, but still behind Sony's. Software! Shoutout to Samsung fanboys who are using the S7 and S7 Edge, tell me when Samsung will ever release back their Nougat update with 0 issues like Sony's. Our old Z5 series already have it, and your latest phones doesn't, lol. In 2018, Sony will accomodate OLED on their Xperia flagships, and when that happens, bye bye Apple and Samsung in the world
phonefan1, 18 Jan 2017i've been observing sony phone for quite some time and I wondered, most of sony phone are same... moreDude they have big camera sensor on the back, not to mention their selfie cam sensor has almost the same size with iphone rear..
Think how they manage to fit that with a stereo speaker on top with smaller bezel than iphone
