It's a shown concept. And ltps with OLED. You made me laugh today sir. That isn't possible before 2018 in small quantities and at least fall 2018 before they are in mass production. How did you compare a concept screen tech with one thats in millions of Device in market amuses me
Anonymous, 10 Feb 2017Have you used any Sony phone? Ram don't matter. It is all software optimisation do. That's why... moreI just show to you google Pixel , the most optimized android ever, losing to a 6GB phone.
What are you *talking* about? Sony runs android iphone runs ios.
Educate yourself, Sony has all the pros and cons of android, for example it cannot store an app snapshot in ram, in fact it has to store most of it, which is why it needs more Ram for the same levels of backgrounding. Nothing to do with optimization, that is OS architecture.
Sony is slower *because* it has to reload a lot of the background apps. OnePlus by comparison keeps them all in memory. That's a *huge* difference in day to day experience.
Instead of crying foul explain to me how you'd think that Sony can achieve OnePlus performance... optimization is not as important as you think, seriously it isn't, it's an empty word that is being thrown by non engineers thinking it means something completely different than what it actually means. For example since most high ends android run Qualcomm cpus they all run the same kind of cpu/ram optimizations, there is nothing they can do about it, simply because a lot of apps are optimized precisely for use in Qualcomm CPUs...

3 or 4 gigs aren't enough for Daydream VR support as it only places the sony in the minimum category?
Look at the back of the XZ successor. That kind of design is similar to the old xperia smartphones! Which is the reason why xperia X to XZ doesn't sell well. If you look at the back of the lenovo phab 2 pro. That camera is well designed for Augmented reality. Which is good for video recording and snapshots cause the devices camera won't heat up and of course won't force the camera app to close. Plus that Quad LED flash kills the single camera flash on all xperia devices.
Last month. Asus introduces a flagship killer named Zenfone AR. Which is Tango + daydream support, 8GB of RAM, offers up to 256GB of internal storage + microSD support, and their headphone jack has dts headphone x and DTS HD sound enhancement. From the looks of these specs. It is certainly a flagship killer on all mobile devices. If sony couldn't bring up their A game on their upcoming MWC and CES announcement. Then it's a loosing battle for their company.

"Ram don't matter. It is all software optimization do." Really? lol how it possible in android realm?
"That's why iPhones are more faster with 2GB ram. Same goes for Sony. 3GB or 4GB ram is enough for Sony's lightweight UI and it never lags." Really? iOS is different from android dude. "Never lags"? True or just metaphor or sweet talk? No phone is truely never lag! EVERY PHONE LAG EVEN IPHONE! I'm a tester, please dont lie Bro!
"And if other phone with more Ram seems faster it will slow down for sure." Every phone will slow coz by ages, degradation performance or buggy more buggy.
"But Sony phones becomes more faster after updates." Pro and Con, afraid of battery hunger when I heard "FASTER". But I'm impress and said for overall Sony update is one of the best among Apple and Samsung (flagship and few mid-ranger only).

Don't be fooled by Sony's propaganda. They never get to people what they need (battery, portability, speed). No wonder that it's losing money. It is what you get by being worse in everything from the rest.
Everyone hates me, 09 Feb 2017People, you buy phones for its functionality, not its bezels. You can't make any useful use of... moreExactly bezels decrease the functionality of a phone. You lose one handed use, it's harder to store, basically the two things (after battery life) that matter the most in phones.
BTW Sony fails in all, ergonomics, portability, battery life. I wonder how they are still alive, they make the most terrible devices lately, even at $100 I would not buy their products. What a terrible company.
The first photo on the top left are obviously previous models, the one with a mirror like frame is the xperia c3

UI, Lock Screen, Vulcan and most importantly the priceless 'manual shutter control'. This is the best company I ever come across. 4GB RAM is good which some people claimed it was the 'game changer' for this company to rise from dead.
Asterkikasd, 10 Feb 2017How am I a fanboy? I just mentioned things to be improved... didn't praise anything. Also, JDI... moreOf course you're a fanboy you have praised JDI AMOLED as the world's best AMOLED but the product itself is not yet appear. You should know the Galaxy S7 edge's AMOLED display got praise by many reviewers because it color accuracy, even better than Sony phones' LCD. And about Quantity, ask Google and Apple why they trust Samsung to make AMOLED for them, because they trust Samsung's AMOLED Quality, that's why Samsung monopolize AMOLED because their Quality is the best!
Cassy O, 10 Feb 2017Oh fanboy, nothing can beat the AMOLED King (Samsung)It true; Jdi produces better amoled than Samsung with accurate colors.
Cassy O, 10 Feb 2017Oh fanboy, nothing can beat the AMOLED King (Samsung)How am I a fanboy? I just mentioned things to be improved... didn't praise anything. Also, JDI does make better AMOLEDs than Samsung with Super Top Emission technology, LTPS, 100% Rec.2100 colorspace support, and vantablack substrate. JDI will make far better AMOLEDs than Samsung but will not be able to produce many since the technology is more advanced and more difficult to produce with. Samsung's advantage will not be quality, it will simply be quality, they'll just produce more AMOLEDs. Hence, JDI will be the king of high quality AMOLEDs, Samsung will be the king of high quantity AMOLEDs. Quantity vs Quality, pick your poison.
Square, round, big, compact is about taste and needed. Don't force every people into one option hater!
Huge bazel in sony is bad, thin bezel is actual trend and sony should follow it IMO. Don't be second blackberry.
Stereo speaker? Good! Huge bezel for stereo speaker? Maybe yes maybe no. But remember, actual trend is thin bezel.
Camera, my experience with testing phone, xperia is the most consistent in camera performance, taking video and picture. If you have flagship class, record video 5-10 minutes and see how stable your camera produce video, repeat it in many (light) conditions. After that compare,see yourself how your camera quality, and ask yourself how about forcing your phone to take 30 minutes video? How will it video quality?
Take a dozens picture in many (light) conditions, don't cheat and delete bad pict lol. Be honest if you want to know your phone quality.
I'm using S7 and XZ and mi5, think by yourself why I'm using XZ if my job is tester and need to record many think.
If you use and complain, it good but be honest. But if you just hater and just attack your fav brand competitor, shame on you. That's jealousy.
This could be the Xperia XA2 instead of the XZ2. 4GB of RAM is great if it can multitask like the S7 or possibly even better than it. Sony should focus on what is best in every phone and combine all those into a single flagship. Meanwhile I do agree that bezels need to be cut or atleast it should have physical buttons to be a valid reason for having a bezel. The Galaxy S8's highlight feature this year will be a significant cut on bezel so Sony needs to step up their game 2018 the latest. JDI is mass producing the world's best AMOLED (better than Samsung AMOLED) screens starting in 2018 which will be available in Xperia phones.
