edwooty, 03 Mar 2017Talks are cheap. Let them prove themselves first after launching those bezel kings onto market!Sales dont prove nothing about better or worse, except marketing budgets and consumers budgets.
RaghavaZ, 03 Mar 2017How did your phone's bezels improved its quality? The sentiment of my comment is...design dont matter to actual device quality, innovation and performance.
XZ is a beautiful and powerful device with top notch specs... People deciding on MWC prizes recognized that.
Simple as that.
I used the samsung tablet 7" six seven years ago as a phone , drew attantion and remarks from EVERYBODY. samsung note 2 , than 5.2" z3 z5 and than z5 and x compacts . I love my compacts, these are real phones for 24 hours use. premiums and big screens I might buy and use just for the fun of it as mini tv , youtube and movies.

bezeles are ugly but very much needed . for gamers who hold it by hand, i am not one of them but for camera use it is a must for me . I hold the camera in one hand firmly , one hand only. the camera sit in my hand fingers behind under the lens and under camera and thumb on screen , no way it will fall at any but any position and right hand free for setting and shutter realease from screen or button . I have learned it after camera falles numorous times when old the outer frame corners with four weak fingers.
Yes Yes Yessssssssss !!!!!!!! SONY U deserved it ...outstanding ...awesome
Tann Hauser, 03 Mar 2017I feel sorry for LG on that one honestly, just not having Sd 835 will decrease it sales unfort... moreIt's part due to LG's hasty decision to bring their flagship way before S8. And that led them to release G6 with S821. Whereas Sony just announced XZP and about to release in Late Spring, probably one month after the S8's arrival or may reach stores along with S8. This enabled them to get S835 in enough numbers. Whereas LG hurried things up, not that Samsung stopped everyone from getting their share of S835. Simple, if you want it do it like Sony or else do it like LG. Anyhow LG has V30 up in its sleeves, so nothing to worry about G6.
Yeah, the bezels are the main thing that holds this device from becoming premium outside. They look as extreme as in Pixel's. Well, at least Sony's glassy finish doesn't look as fugly as on the latter.

[deleted post]Its quite the other way around....
We are not the ones mentioning the bezels all the time, you are.
Seems some oher brand fans are obsessed with big long screens and mini iny tiny bezels, lsilly design language, ike it actually improves the device quality in some way.
Compliments to Sony for the fantastic specs, but they absolutely need to work hard to reduce those horrible bezels. Great specs, horrible bezels.
AnonD-292154, 03 Mar 2017I don't want thin bezels ; I want stereo speakers. It looks better than lg g6 or Samsung s8.Are you one of those ppl that are walking down the street and are listening to music with their phone on speaker mode?? Apart from that disgusting behaviour, I don't see the need for for stereo speakers on mobiles, on tablets when you can a watch a movie home, OK maybe, but on mobiles? Mobiles are meant to be mobile, the less bezel the better, the more bezel, the less mobile they become. And if you want loud external speakers and want to carry and listen loud music on the go, you can always get a portable speaker untill you discover the existence of of headsets, still this is not an excuse for XZ's huge bezels...

Which part of that you dont understand. What chinese smartphone is better and newer than the one announced in MWC 2017 event? Go ahead, lets see your random choice.

Im afraid tho Samsungs Galaxy S series are always the main contenders in sales, along with iphones....
Not because they are better, but because they do heavy agressive marketing.
AnonD-600084, 03 Mar 2017Congratulation to sony,now this show that being too much bezelless isnt every thing like g6,it... moreEveryone considered motion eye camera and SD 835 while voting and precisely those were the reasons for Sony to bag that prize, not because of bezel-full design. If G6 got those, definitely it would have got that.
I love my XZ. Great phone. I've had Samsung and LG phones and have found the one I consider the best based on my use. Quality build great specs and feels great in the hand. Fast and responsive experience. I did have to Flash to UK firmware to get fingerprint sensor though. Not sure why left off US models.
AnonD-407326, 02 Mar 2017They are mistaken. Sony smartphones do not sell very well. Especially their flagship models.Wrong,
They dont sell very well because cheaper.options out there. But of that sales, about 70-80% are flagships.
And they are, although not much, but profitable...
And with quality devices like XZ and XZ Premium....they will grow and increase, slowly but steadily....
