XtremE16, 26 Feb 2017This is all design new !! U can see old models from n match u understandYou have to be very familiar with their older models to know the difference, for real. It's like comparing new Volkswagen models with a couple of years old ones - to most people, they look the same. As long as this (personally, it's horrible) brick-design remains to exist, they look the same for most people.
I hope sony will make bezelless phone on IFA..maybe 2018..but bezel on this phone is ok for Sony loyal fan .but if people like bezelless phone ..sony should follow the trend..but not the Edge trend...
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017Agree with you, my current XA battery drains like water, and my phone is mostly on standby... my battery lasts for 2 days on my XA, after Nougat update it will be better, I am happy with my gorgeous phone
I don't like the design of the xz it looks very generic and so expensive. The only one thats goodlooking on the xperia lineup is the xa but suckish at performance
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017It looks like chicken, all look same. Can't tell which one is XZ successor if GSMA just posted... moreIf you hate it dont buy it.....sony dont force people to buy their phone...so get the hell out of here

It looks like chicken, all look same. Can't tell which one is XZ successor if GSMA just posted the picture without description. What the hell with Sony design department!!!

Sony phone division made $30M profit at 2016 q4 (for the first time in years), which is not much but the point is that the phone division is starting to do well and is very unlikely to close anytime soon.

Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017Large bezels, Ugly design, etc. etc... Stop that annoying comments. What's wrong with design? ... moreSony smartphones are good
I personaly like them,. But They didn't change their phone design for a long time. They Have to be refresh their phone design.
Where the world goes to small bazzel and bigger screen with smaller body sony stick to their old model that is not fancy today and that's why they are now far behind to their competitors..
Please Sony Do Something
Change your design.
There are People Who always give Sony their first preference.....
AnonD-29706, 26 Feb 2017Boy, you really believed you were going to get a thousand bucks.Yes. I'm currently in talks with my lawyer to track down that guy and charge the 1000 bucks he owes me now....
Or like Liam Neeson would say:
I don't know who you are. But I know you owe me 1000 USD. If you give me that 1000 Bucks that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will sue you. :)
To be honest, I've never seen the innards of the 5 inch+ phones so I can't speak about them.
However, when I recently had to replace the screen of my XperiaÂ™ Z3 Compact, I found that it's as packed as can be (at least, to my non-engineering eyes).
Stereo speakers top & bottom, cameras and some chips at the top. Vibration motor, microphone and a few more circuits and chips at the bottom.
I have no issues with the bezels; it's enclosing some essential stuff, if you ask me.
And besides, when using the phone, I'm immersed in the screen's contents, not the bezels surrounding the screen.
