kenny, 24 Aug 2017yeah and a cow can sit on than bezels tooBezel with stereo speakers is best! Xperia have stereo speaker, I watching YouTube it sound really balance come out from the both speakers and it is really pleasant, do you see any competitor with pleasant stereo speaker? No. The mono side speaker just unpleasant even the sound is loudness but the quality is shame, it just like a toys.
Bezel with convenience holding is nicer! When I watching YouTube or playing game, I just use ONE hand pinch on the bezel and I found it is also good for taking selfie by pinch the bezel with one hand.
Ample bezel is more sturdy than bezel-less!
Vizagking, 24 Aug 2017Xz1 and compact camera aperture 1.4Source? Or only wild dreams? With some security it will be f2.0 like all other Xperias before.
Reading this comments, sony probably wont sell single piece of xz1. If I am honest, I dont care much about bezels. I might replace XZ1 for my old Z2. I dont need 4k or 2k display. Full hd is just fine. I hope camera will not have distortion like on xzp.
Bezels, hahaha this is what I was thinking when I saw the picture on the article and I wasn't wrong when I go through the comment section 😂 most of the comments are whining about th humongous bezels. I can't blame them because I do want it a little bit smaller but not to small as it has two front speakers which they can extend to the very end like the Z2 which will increase the screen to body ratio.
actually the sides are made of metal you can tell this because of the antenna bands and some of the earlier leaked images of the frame.
MustafaK, 24 Aug 2017Same s**t, different day. Nothing new about the design. Nothing new about the internal problem... moreAs you can see the xz premium was relatively cool compared to other manufacturers htc Samsung etc it could record more than an hour on 4k and maybe you got a bad device or youÂ’re unlucky with sony devices because my x dont heat up at all
Like one plus 5 doesnt have bezels or htc or Huawei/honor....slim bezels are not every1s cup of tea..
Big fan of Sony's design even with the ginormous bezel. I barely notice them on my XZP
from the pictures I think its featuring the new full resolution fast continuous shooting form SONY!
Same s**t, different day. Nothing new about the design. Nothing new about the internal problems of the phone. I have the XZ still heats, still lags. Every update brings even more problems. I got out of Sony after a long series of Xperia Mini, P, Ray, Z1 COMPACT, Z3 DUAL, Z5 DUAL, AND A FINAL trust I gave to XZ. BUT ALL THE SAME AFTER THE Z3, it is a total fiasco.
sony, i really like your brand and your phone, but please, shrink the bezel. even just half of what you habe now
Hayato, 24 Aug 2017Sign....... Why Sony...... Going for the xz premium now.
Thing to take note:
XZ -> firs... moreWhat XZ1 has that XZs does not...
S835, Adreno 540, 3000 mAh, HDR screen, ufs 2.1, bluetooth 5.0, better QC, metal unibody, 3D creator, ...
Lets wait until IFA to know what else is different...
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2017I can accept XZ1 Compact design - at least we get a powerhouse trapped inside a 130mm case, pr... moreBecause XZ1 has the 835, Motion Eye, bluetooth 5.0, ufs 2.1, stereo speakers, Qnovo Battery Care, better QC, will be updated way faster.
Even XZs is better than G6.
Sony approach to design is like Porsche's design. It barely changed from the first Porsche 911. While I have to admit bezel-less phones look amazing they leave much to desire in terms of functionality and durability. I won't spend tons of money on a phone which is susceptible to breaking with the very first drop. Sony's design is a timeless classic. From the first xperia to the latest they all look good on an office desk
I've always had Xperia phones and I love it. But for 2017/2018 standards, these bezels are unacceptable. I currently have Xperia xz premium and I don't mind the bezels that much....but COMMON. Sony has to do something. You look at most premium android phones and they're all cutting down on bezels....Sony phones are starting to look outdated. And now we look at xz1 with what seems to be ever more bezel than older Xperias. Really.
Why complain about bezels when your bezel-less phones get the case treatment anyway?
