Vegetaholic, 02 Oct 2017Tells this to Sony sales manager, looks like the guy doesn't have a clue wtf is going onMaybe he doesn't?
There's still plenty of managers out there that are terrible at their job, because they refuse to evolve with the changing market and end up as dinosaurs.
Again, this is overpriced.
Compete with OnePlus/Nokia/Blackberry at the $499 level... then this phone becomes a compelling value, if one could overlook the discounted LG G6 that is.

It needs to loose much more to even convince this is a good deal

Majority rules, fanboys are the minority. It's a tough one to swallow for them.
They need to discount this all the way to the bargain bin section. Nobody is gonna buy this ugly phone for more than $100.
UltimateZeroSeconds, 02 Oct 2017They steal the show because of the price drop very fast. It's because those are its competitor phones. The iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 are the next generation while Sony still tries to keep up with the S8 and 7 and pricing their (not really new or impressive by any means) flagship above those
Sony has terrible service in US. I had mine 2 times serviced (each time a month and a half). And, I had to pay for the shipping too. On top of bad service, they announced that they wont service any cellphone out of guarantee. This will make me to stay away of this brand.
However, I can't survive by the end of 2017 with such a bezels!
XZ1 would have been a good phone if priced correctly. At € 500 or 450, it would be a real competitor. But at this price, the € 500 Galaxy S8 and € 550 iPhone 7 easily steal the show.
Hmm next year is your SONY..Don't worry... Whos hate now? They apologize next year because they don't know..... Something special coming...... 2018 for SONY
If you're okay with having no U.S. warranty, but having the fingerprint reader pre-enabled, 1shopmobile has it for only $600 USD.
What for a commet you hav nt ifen hold the phone and post such a comment i have order this phone becource of the good and fair review from gsmarena you should really think twice before posting a comment no one force you too by the xz1 but some people will by it
And people will still ignore this master piece and buy featureless smartphones just because it doesn't have fruit logo, how ironic.
"that's neither AMOLED nor bezelless"
I guess it's not HdR, right? I would assume it doesn't have any other technologies after the article cherrypicked two things the screen doesn't have.
Still way way way way too much. This should be retailing for $399 unlocked MAX.
