Actually Sony was the first ever OEM to make a phone with a very promising screen to body ratio with the Xperia ZL in 2013! If only Sony brought back that design along with the IP rating then it could have made their phones more popular especially for the flagship ones. Now I think I might have to stick with my Mi Max 2 till I find out what's next for Sony's smartphones. I am excited for the Mate 10 by Huawei too! :)

Right move Sony. Your bezels were too large. I do not mind having small bezels, but yours were out of proportions! If you shave off the bezels and bring a good aspect ration (not like the new Samsung's remote controllers calling themselves smartphones, and better battery sizes, you will have many more loyal followers.

I like how everyone's hating on the phone claiming they're just jumping on the bandwagon
saying they're slow on the trends, but the bezelless trend has only been going on for a year
and, you guys just hatin since sony is a legit threat...
FINALLY..and don't forget to use better camera lenses and chipset then we can call it high end flagship models
They really just killed the XZ sales by announcing this. I honestly dont know what are these "exec" are doing. Their marketing is inconsistent, very weak and just plain confusing, especially in the naming department. I used Sony devices since the Z1 days and until today, I still love their devices, but in time, they are not going in the right direction. If they can get the marketing well, they'll sell for sure, but after Samsung announce the S8 and Note8, they really need to up their game. What's the point of winning IFA best innovation but no one knows about it.

If the iPhone 5 series (5c excluded, SE included) is the best iPhone design ever, the iPhone 4 from 2010 is the most influential phone design for this decade.
Alot of hater say sony is following trend,but its not,sony not following,instead they will overtake and take it to a higher level,and sony not being late,they just do some research and experiment first,not rushing like samsung,eventually they make bezelless with edge equal to fragile cough s8 cough...so best for the last..
They should also add OIS to the main camera to help with night time shots and video.
They should also fix the internal components design, so that the first things that can be easily removed are the display itself and then the battery since those are the two things that are often replaced. Problem with other manufacturers are that they bury the battery under so many major components and under a ton of adhesive that it is difficult to remove and fix. Same thing with the display, many manufacturers make it difficult to remove it by making it the last part that can be removed when it should be the first one that should be removable.
