Ouch, I burned my fingers just opening the poll. Some really hot stuff here. :-)
I'd love a Xperia Arc remake with bezel-less design, that would be hot and pretty unique.
What keeps me from buying Sony phones is the lack of international availability right now, my last one was the Z3 and I loved it.
For those saying 5.1~5.2 screen is too small, seriously... It's a phone and it's within a great size, the iPhone SE wouldn't be such a success if everyone would rather carry 6' phablets around. Sony has the XA1 Ultra and probably more to follow on the bigger size.
The pic is XZs. XZ1 is indeed hot imo. They finally did their best. No cutbacks on materials or mics, louder speakers, good button placement, different and classy look. Only downside is the battery size, which gives good endurance anyway.
I Love sony ,i have the z5, but this phone is the same as the last year, and the future of the phones is bezeless front, so this is not hot and im going to wait to the next gen of sony with de the hope the phone come with a square frontal and not curved...

Sony does not make low quality/low cost like 90% of chinese brands
It's hot, but not that hot. XZ1 Compact is hotter imo. Waiting for next Xperia flagship gen. Hopefully in 2018 they kick in with refreshed design and replace my Z5. We know you can, Sony!
Sony Xperia XZ1 needs smaller bezels and bigger battery - at lest 3500 mAh.
I love the omini balance design of Sony but I voted no because I feel it is overpriced.
Swim Swim, 01 Oct 20175.2 for me just way too small, Sony bad quality control -most recently I heard many complains ... moreI think thats the exception not the rule to be honest, might be only in certain markets/signal bands that have connection issues.
Pricing issue is bigger but give it a month or so and it will be slightly cheaper than the xzp in many markets.
Swim Swim, 01 Oct 20175.2 for me just way too small, Sony bad quality control -most recently I heard many complains ... moreI believe that you are talking about another Sony company from another dimension, by the way, our Sony company here in this dimension is the best no doubt.
Reduce of bezels!is not possible!? It's OK give us 5.1ch in gigantic bezels and OmniAuto instead Omni Balance
5.2 for me just way too small, Sony bad quality control -most recently I heard many complains about wireless signal and display problems touch not registering correctly- and still somewhat prone to overheating, too expensive 750euro(!!!), most carrier refuses to carry it also you cannot buy directly from Sony in my country so GSM sources which very risky, small battery, small internal storage and mediocre Ram-->
What I mean is if a phone costs above 700+ euro then I expect premium hardware and we arent getting that with this phone.
Also xperia xz premium cost 650euro.. so really interesting pricing strategy. BTW also that phone many problem and most people regret it getting- very low volume speakers, display problems, software issues unfixed, extremely bad wifi signal etc
I would stay away from Sony
Sony has fantastic high end devices, but I would want an entry level device from Sony; Snapdragon 430 or 435, 12mp camera on both sides, 5 inch screen with at least 300 ppi, stock Android, FM radio, headphone jack, Sony equalizer(or MaxxAudio), expandable storage, and removable battery. I would buy instantly for $100.
I forgot; XZ1 is hot.
Boxy phone without soul! Just repeatedly about five years! Language design+UI= XZ1 is not hot...
