Sony is The first and The best!
There,l... a treat for you ... moreBecause Sony is still in catch up mode. Maybe in 2018, Sony will have acceptable 2018 features and style phones.
In 2018, Sony is going to Oled screens with 18.9:1 aspect ratios. Probably an edge screen option. Bezeless phones and maybe dual rear cameras with OIS. Maybe then, people will become more interested in Sony, because at present, Sony isn't even in the Top 10 smartphones sales or popularity.
60ez, 24 Oct 2017lol. so now you change your mind?
now you admit that it has ugly distortion problem?
haaaha... moreEven DSLR is can have image distortion, it is normal. Sony have done the good job as they have updated the software with rectified versions: https://imgur.com/gallery/fh4aV
I have to bring up this link because I found spam overlap this link (I known this is always a the bad marketing strategy from the competitors)
Now only the real user can be happy, but the troll can only be sad, because they are headaches how to trolling.
very good phone, great camera and now with Android 8.0 is the best !!!!!
Sony makes quality phones. Looking at the competition and seeing What's happening with the pixels, Iam more and more convinced with sticking with sony
MrXperia, 24 Oct 2017From Android O, Double-Tap to wake is not included in the cookie.
Sony have removed becaus... moreInstall Gravity Screen from Play Store. You just have to pick the phone up and it will turn on by itself. Or you can use the proximity sensor - you don't even touch the phone to wake it.
To turn it off you place it either face down, either head down or just place it on a leveled surface.
Once you'll use it, you'll install it on all your phones. Trust me :)
Oh, it's not a battery hog by the way, so no need to worry.

Sony have removed because intelligence showed only a fraction of people were using it.
I was one, and I'd like it back... but it wont happen.

There,l... a treat for you and your bunch of fboys clodding this thread.
Alien , 24 Oct 2017When it comes to debloating the os, you're on my territory. All i have to say is that you are ... moreGuess your talking about rooting the phone. Well, most people don't know or are not interested in rooting.
60ez, 24 Oct 2017like i said. it is just a company or a product. it is not your friend and not your family. tho... moreIf Sony doesn't care for me, then neither do other companies.
If I don't like something in a product, I don't bash on the company that made it all day long!!!
I simply try another and see what I like most, and in my case I like Sony's flagships the most, knowing that all companies' flagships have their own strength points, and all of them have common main specs as well.
C.N., 23 Oct 2017Sony I'm proud of you. Forever with youMy friend, I also own Z2, and M4 Aqua and X Performance. All of them have 'double tap', but now on XZ Premium is excluded.
On the official Sony forum, lot of people were asking to return this useful option but seems that they will not include it even later.

so giving bad opinions to a product is ok. if you dont like it, you can simply give bad opinions to it or replace it with something else.
Tann Hauser, 24 Oct 2017Sony UI is excellent, fast and responsive, and being close to stock android, changes with ever... moreWell said.
I enjoy clean minimal fast ui. I can't think of anything cheaper than some ridiculous '80's editing techniques of flashing borders changing from square to triangle when I rotate my phone, open an app or swipe through homescreens. I'm not 3 years old any more. Just do what I want, when I want, as quickly as possible, the Xperia way.

I say facts I faced in real life, I can also state some bad things about my Z2, or my father's S6, or any of the phones I tried.
But why should I bash and object about anything and everything??!!!!!! Why, when I can simply see what the devices offer at their best..
8knots, 24 Oct 2017It's a waste of time dealing with them. I have a Z3+ since last year and despite what people h... moreYou're right man, I have the Z2 since July 2014, and despite all the accidents it had, including a drop in the sea, it's still fast and impressive, and I love it.
The dummies are burning as Sony is always first in new things: for example, Sony XZ Premium is the 1st phone announced with Snapdragon 835 (Feb 27), and the first to get the Oreo update, then on Aug 31 Sony triples the beast lineup with the XZ1 and XZ1 Compact which are the first two flagships with Android Oreo from day one out of the box.
As for the UI, it's light, fast, close to stock android.
Sony phones are durable, very strong, have excellent batteries and power management, which keeps improving as the time goes by.
The design is very practical, even if bezels could have shrunk a little bit, but this is okay, at least Sony phones have two front facing stereo speakers.
I will take a lot of time to state the great things Sony's phones have, knowing that im one who tried most of this year's flagships (those which were released in my country).
[deleted post]fortunately i dont have any favourite brand. i use my current phone because it fits to my need. im fully aware of its weakness and also its goodness.
let me tell you. i currently use s6. you can give bad opinions to it as much as you want. and i wont react to defend it. i dont even care if someday sammy shut-down its mobile division.
