UltimateZeroSeconds, 02 Oct 2017This is confuse enough, if the Samsung Tizen Z3 smartphone get complain such as screen crackin... morekind of bad reputation?
like sony's self cracking screen, distortion, wifi problem,cheap pl@stic frame, slow charging time, xa1 touchscreen problem, etc.
After using flagship phones from Sony, Samsung, HTC, LG I will choose Sony and this one is one of the best. I don't care about bezels.
Vegetaholic, 01 Oct 2017Sony was behind in android games since first Android phone. All the time lacks something, what... moreYou mean like Apple iPhones? Behind the times with either cameras, displays, design, water-resistance, or something else? Yet, no matter how small the "improvements" Apple still gets a large piece of the pie.
Romie Lee, 02 Oct 2017Not hot! Sony design language are so cheap as always...those Bezels are so horrible!At least much expensive than simply copy paste an iphone design
Soi Je, 02 Oct 2017XZ1 Compact = hot XZ1 = notCame to comment this...
Not hot! Sony design language are so cheap as always...those Bezels are so horrible!
UltimateZeroSeconds, 02 Oct 2017This is confuse enough, if the Samsung Tizen Z3 smartphone get complain such as screen crackin... moreoh it's very hot. that huge bezel burns my hand. it's hot it's hot
Ossie77, 01 Oct 2017Actually I think the XZ1 Compact is hotter than its big brother and one of the hottest Android... moreI agree... Only Resolution is compromise this time so XZ1 Compact is way hotter.
XBR, 01 Oct 2017Its meh, battery is meh, design is meh, naming is meh. Xperia Z7 could have been betterThis is confuse enough, if the Samsung Tizen Z3 smartphone get complain such as screen cracking, there were be misleading people that Z3 (Sony) screen cracking, if they didn't mention Samsung or Sony. Better don't use a single alphabet such like Z7 Z8 Z9... it will same name like Samsung Tizen naming and people don't appreciate it hence ruin the Sony reputation as well.
Using naming XZ XA is better and unique, it also to avoid any confusion especially when the paid writer want to misleading people, example: "the Z3 is a very bad phone", but which Z3 do they mentioned, Samsung Z3 or Sony Z3. I hope you can understand my explanation.

Ppl like only because Samsung uses. You cant have better front cam or front speaker with tiny bezel.
Sony has own displays, why would buy from samsung? Crap pentile with punch colors...
XZ1 is the most pointless phone release in a long time...with the same useless gimmicks as before. Sony dropped the ball and Samsung is running away with it. Done.
Actually I think the XZ1 Compact is hotter than its big brother and one of the hottest Android devices right now.
Sony was behind in android games since first Android phone. All the time lacks something, what is suppose to be standard, before, back to Xperia times was chipsets, now same outdated design, which miles behind leaders, camera sub bar, no amoleds, no bezeless screens, no dual cameras, Jesus, releasing same phones every 6 months, are you kidding me? Yes, Sony is a joke
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2017I've bought Moto G4 Play with 200 $. It is good phone. But Sony is Sony. No other brand can co... moreMaybe but maybe at D1, for that price now days you can find mid range and not low range phone
In some places the XZ1 can be found for just $600 USD, and only $500 for the compact version (which is the one I grabbed!). Both are very good value for the money, and few competing flagships come close to offering the same amount of quality and features for those prices. Plus Sony's software support has improved a lot in the past couple years. While the number of improvements and changes to the XZs are minor, Sony is offering some pretty hot stuff here, if you like the design of course.
