It's nice to see once again all the butthurt kids who would like to have all the cool features only Sony phones offer, but they can't buy it because of the 1cm bezels. They rather buy some Chinese brands with gimmicky features like no bezels (almost) and have bad battery life, laggy ui, no or slow updates and are worried about 1 single drop which those phones won't survive.
And yeah, about those bezels kids... There is no true bezelless phone on the market right now, it's all just false advertisement, kids... You all will have to buy your new "true" bezelless flagships again in 2018, so prepare your wallets!

Aspros, 20 Sep 2017Poor Sony cannot keep up with times, the end is imminent...People keep saying that like 5 or 7 years ago, try again hater.
most of the comments are about bezels, not everyone cares are minimal bezels
to me, what is more important, are the unique features only avalible on xperia phones
3d scanner mode for making 3d scans of objects and faces, can even print them via 3d printers
ldac, aptx hd (only XZ1, XZ1 compact) and bluetooth 5.0 (only XZ1, XZ1 compact) which mean it's wireless audio master, no other phone brand has all 3 standards and ldac has the highest bitrate 990kbps which 3 times higher than standard bluetooth
ps4 dual shock controller native support and ps4 remote play
digital noise cancellation for music, movies and games (requires headphones mdr-nc750)
960fps super slow motion (it's way better than conventional 240fps)
imRGZ, 20 Sep 2017Even the phones which have smallest of bezels have all those you mentioned....Example the iPho... moreIPhone X is a bad example.
That phone is almost 2 times more expensive than xz1c.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2017Rear camera is above screen. The diagonal of sensor is 7.73mm , more than the bezel of G6. ... moreBut ironically, those phones having 18:9 aspect ratio screens are lot smaller or manageable than Sony's best flagship, XZP! Eg: XZP: 156 x 77 x 7.9 mm and iPhone X: 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm or even S8: 148.9 x 68.1 x 8 mm. iPhone X has got rear dual cameras, dual stereo speakers, Face ID sensors, 5.8" screen and still smaller than XZP! Now no one can just defend those big bezels are there because of stereo speakers....
is more compact than the iphone 8 + 1000 mah and xamxungs 5 ​​"obsolets phones
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2017Certainly you have no idea in the application design of hardware. The spaces are needed to fit... moreEven the phones which have smallest of bezels have all those you mentioned....Example the iPhone X has got stereo speakers and an additional camera sensor on the back and still doesn't have even 10% of Sony's bezels... And it has lot more to cram in that small cutout at the top than what Sony managed to put in that huge bezels of XZP/XZ1/XZ1C/XZS.....Sony's designs are just good, but nothing extraordinary, only catering to their fans rather than attracting larger customers.

My Xperia U fell from my pocket while riding a bike at 50kmph and rolled and dragged on the road but came out fully intact and operational whilst taking just a few minor scratches on the back rubber panel which have disappeared overtime.
What the hell is Sony doing??? Sony could have kept a 5" screen and a 3000 mah battery for this product. No optical image stabilisation?? The size of galaxy s7 was super cool and that was super adequate for one hand use and this compact could have had that size with ease. 1080p resolution would not have a heavy toll on the snd 835 too. Instead of adding super slo mo and all even if there was a decent 16mp camera with ois it would have worked even better. Without ois these phones performs very well in First yr then comes the 2nd year of life all Androids become little slower and @ that time if there is no ois, all your snaps will be blurred. Sony has also priced it too much illogically. When people get one plus for a lower price with a huge screen why would we go for an iphone priced android with blurry camera inferior battery and poor longevity.
NewHorizons, 20 Sep 2017The phone is great but the price is not.
asking too much for a cheap 4.7 720P screen phone ... moreOP5 is 500.
No ip68, no hdr screen, no QC 3.0/4.0, no slot sd, no stereo audio, bad front cam, poor EIS.
Bad for video even with amoled screen.
NewHorizons, 20 Sep 2017you are mistaken ...
whats inside has nothing to do with the bezel .. they can put a larger... moreRear camera is above screen. The diagonal of sensor is 7.73mm , more than the bezel of G6.
There are other components between cam and screen.
18:9 is smaller and stupid.
Example: 5.5(16:9) is bigger than 5.8(18:9)
NewHorizons, 20 Sep 2017The phone is great but the price is not. asking too much for a cheap 4.7 720P screen phone ... more You are very unreasonable! iPhone is over 1000 use!why don't you open your eyes?
NewHorizons, 20 Sep 2017The phone is great but the price is not. asking too much for a cheap 4.7 720P screen phone ... morethat's not a cheap panel...it has same triluminous tech and X reality for mobile...only resolution is 720p
