-NEOPHYTE-, 09 Apr 2017The key word being "samples". Wait till it comes out ffsLOL! The samples here are what I always have based my purchasing decision on. Like I said, one of the worst samples I have seen this year. I will still wait for DPReview's review. But like all Sony phones not holding my breath anyway.
ithehappy, 09 Apr 2017Really? Those samples are one the WORST I have seen so far in 2017 from a so called flagship! The key word being "samples". Wait till it comes out ffs
Alien , 09 Apr 2017Pixel is good but the lack of SD Card slot makes me not care about what other specs it has.
I... more1) Pixel 2 will be *waterresistent IP68 (1.5metres for 30minutes)
2) the free unlimited plan to upload photos/videos on Photos(Google Drive) at original quality makes the lack of microsd OK, because all your photos and videos will be on cloud, not on storage and the 32GB are more than enough for apps...and the 128GB option is more than enough if you plan to put entire FLAC albums and movies on the phone.
*no mainstream phone in history has ever been waterproof, maybe some military grade bricks
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2017Sony's poor lcd screen still look better than that fake oled.Whats fake about amoled???
After what happened to my Z3C and the lack of support, I'd say: Bye Sony.
Why isn't there an option: waiting for a different Sony phone???? I'm waiting for the new Xperia Compact to see if it's a better successor to Z5 Compact.
-NEOPHYTE-, 09 Apr 2017Potentially the best smartphone camera of 2017... Agreed :)

SONY needs to stop being unique and just copy every other smartphon... moreCouldn't agree more. Actually at one point (from z3 to Z5) , the rectangular design started to feel boring and unexciting, but fast forward to 2017, actually only Sony phones are "iconic" and" signature " in terms of design.
But I think they should trim their bezels a bit at least if do not want to ride on bezelless train. G6 side bezels and a bit bigger top and bottom bezels to keep their stereo speakers, work on volume and clarity of speakers, get rid off those artifacts which still remain after years of photography experience of Sony, and stop being so stingy for RAM.
ithehappy, 09 Apr 2017Tell me a reason to get this phone and I will get it.Too many reasons, it can't be counted, i will tell you reasons not to buy, not enough mony, or if you want phablet version (xz premium)
Now i did make it easier for you ;-)

It's so annoying seeing all these idiots complaining that the bezels are too big, but if Sony removed the FRONT FACING STEREO SPEAKERS, everything would go to sh*t. Can't please them all...

But decidedly no X series phone is as good today (or was at its launch day) as the z3 was in its day. And I'm talking about phone overall not camera or screen.
