Five Star, 16 Apr 2017No one wants a phone with big bezelsiPhone the best seller 2016,2015,2014 etc
The XZs would be more interesting if it had UFS storage instead of eMMC.
Also the design is a bit iffy. Not the general design language or bezels, but the asymmetrical speakers and the metal back with plastic sides - either go full metal or full plastic! Incorporating Samsung-esque plastic that's painted to look metal is tacky.
Apart from 4K HDR display we have nothing neo special thing in XZp! Waiting for Nokia 9
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2017Even the 3 years old G2 looks better. They can make changes as long as they are willing to...2017 will be the year of bezel less phones. If Sony follows the same path, they'll no longer be different from the vast majority, hence can't tell that their phones are Sony Xperia phones and not like anybody else. Xperia ZL bezel size is perfect, G2 is also good, just as good

Sony is missing some models. 5.5" - 5.7" QHD phone with a top notch chipset. I am fine with upcoming UHD display, but still want 5.7" in size.
Tann Hauser, 16 Apr 2017Really well surprised in big interest about XZ Premium.
Best flagship phone no doubt. :-)Not if they continue to produce devices with big bezels and poor battery life.
The square Sony look with big bezels is getting tired.
ithehappy, 16 Apr 2017XZs was meant to be a camera phone and then it had one of the worst camera in 2017, XZ Premium... moreSony wants to sell well their phone cameras to other companies (and they have the majority of the market) and that's why they put OK cameras in the Xperia lineup...they don't want to have the best camera in a smartphone...if they did then the other companies would be angry.
Ali Bashir, 16 Apr 2017Good to see 58% of people here still prefer Sony anyway huhBut why cannot squeeze in top 10 omes in sales?
To correct GSMArena: XZs is not a flagship, it's just an high-end phone...like U Ultra, G6...in 2017 flagships have Snapdragon 835, Exynos 8895, Kirin 960.
XZs was meant to be a camera phone and then it had one of the worst camera in 2017, XZ Premium I am sure will be same. Somehow Sony will manage to match camera of Galaxy S7 or something from last year, and as Sony fanboys have never seen what a good camera is they will be over the moon for that.
That's how Sony has been doing for past five years or so. Terrible phones, Xperia lineup, especially for cameras. I still have the soft spot for Sony being an SE user from early days, and I waste time reading reviews of each and every flagship Xperia and in the end thinking same, LOL its just another stupid phone, which excels in basically nothing except the SONY logo at the back.
Good luck Sony. Your loyalists are keeping you from being bankrupt and obviously your insane financials at first place, but with other OEMs being significantly ahead of you lets see how long you can stay afloat.
Five Star, 16 Apr 2017No one wants a phone with big bezelsThat is if everyone has the "tech sense" where they get to understand every aspect of the device, but no, most general consumers want a phone for it's brand, price, design, and pr talk. For example, I joined a friend of mine to buy a phone, the sales rep said it was made of metal, but I told my friend it was plastic, but the PR insists on metal. After all, it did not have any antenna bands. So, my friend believed in the PR talk and bought that phone for $150. (SD 425, 8MP camera, we could have bought a Redmi Note 3)
And XZs got much love too, with XZ Premium around the corner and all.
Great devices these two.
Really well surprised in big interest about XZ Premium.
Best flagship phone no doubt. :-)
But seems more are liking it than that bezeless flag in previous week.
42 not interested against 46 not interested. :-)
Good to see 58% of people here still prefer Sony anyway huh
Poor poor sony.. its already time for sony to come back to their sense, and stop this xperia project already, they should focus more on other products, which are also declining in profits
