While all other company is trying to reduce the bezel, sony increase its own. sony is surely not a mainstream phone maker.
dat chin though :D
Sony redefining the gigantic bezels,their management watching the sleek competition and playing 2pac's "Me against the world".
Sony should fire their xperia designer. They should follow trend of bezel-less since it what now become a "fashion" for phone. If their too stubborn and keep "huge bezel", probably their faithful fans will change their fav/brand.
XZ user here
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2017Sony is good but their software is rubbish. Yes, it doesnt lag like Samsung or LG or HTC howev... more"I am myself a software engineer and their coding is really simple and looks like it is bound to have problems in future." lol you are software engineer but cant see it as positive point (their coding is really simple)
Force Majeure, 09 Feb 2017Yeah, a lot of Sony mobiles are ugly as f**k. I couldn't agree more, but this is a matter of personal taste - I happen not to like the boxy design. However, I saw the XZ in a store... So damn ugly. :o The blue color was a nice one, but the overall design is something I just couldn't stand. But then again, Mi Mix remains as the only actually good-looking phone in YEARS for me. It was like nobody was even really trying, or at least Sharp's models were nowhere to be seen in here.
The current XA has more acceptable bezels than this... My goodness...
Claudiu.Lucian, 08 Feb 2017The important thing is not who is more powerful, 625 or P20,but the fact that P20 is a looooot... moreFinally somebody who understands why OEMs prefer -- sometimes -- MediaTek over Qualcomm.
It's isn't about the fastest one. Once a device can handle everyday tasks, then it's fine for a regular user. If you want to play games, get a Console.
And yes, MediaTek is way cheaper than Qualcomm.
When will sony learn how to minimize the bezels....and have crisper colors like samsung and iphone and huawei for example.
If this got 70%+ screen to body ratio because the side bezels are slim, but on the top and bottom, holy moly mother bezels.
No fingerptint scanner, no IP protection, plastic body.
Galaxy A 2017 is better. :-P
Sony is good but their software is rubbish. Yes, it doesnt lag like Samsung or LG or HTC however it is too vulnerable and unstable. I am myself a software engineer and their coding is really simple and looks like it is bound to have problems in future.
Top & bottom bezels are ridiculous, there's no other way to put it.
At the end of the day you guys brag the bezel while the real buyer doesn't care
Everyone hates me, 08 Feb 2017XA and XA Ultra already have 75% STB ratio lolDon't lie, boy, Xperia XA has 71% STB, thing is, the side bezels are slim, but top and bottom bezels are way big, making it look ugly and disproportionate.
