leo R, 01 Nov 2017Why interested in sony phones? Because I am a sony fan. I bought xperia XZs a month ago. But, ... more"But, I will not blindly protect Sony" Yes I absolutely agree to that statement! I think the same too, there are some aspects of Sony that we like and we don't like, and the 2 main points that definitely needs a change are the bezels and the camera. The camera sometimes oversharpen the images in some occasions, and when u point somewhere like slightly dark areas, it will crank the noise up more than any other smartphone, and the images WILL DEFINITELY turn very soft, if u don't know me, I always recommend people using Manual Mode, but u will still see the few problems that u found previously that u are trying to solve, even if u lower the ISO or Shutter Speed. Frankly speaking, I don't really care about the bezels, bezeless or not, I am fine with it, it is still the same, except they shaved off the bezel and make that space into a touchscreen display. Me trying a GALAXY S8 from a carrier shop even if it is almost bezeless that doesn't cause accidental touches. If they can trim off the bezels it will definitely look better than it is currently
What about a phone with no bezels at all in any side?
First question will be about selfie camera and the second will be ear piece.
Camera, IÂ’ll explain below, ear piece can be implemented on top of the phone.
This phone should have a very basic main camera, something similar to secondary camera of flagships.
I am coming up with a modular design, this time only a top piece (around 10-15mm tall, breadth and depth same is phone).
This top piece should have a top class camera with good flash (4 LED or and xenon).
The top piece should be able to be placed in either side, where the camera can be used as either back or front (selfie).
When it is placed on back, the in built camera should act as the secondary camera for bokh effects.
Top camera piece can have 2-3 varieties with different price ranges based on the image quality (1 should be bundled in box).
Even can have a bottom piece with double or quad speakers, so can have better sound quality too.
Bezel lovers can fix the pieces always to have bezels, others can fix them when required.
I feel this can reduce the cost of the smartphone, can have a beefy in built battery and reduced cost of manufacturing.
Also will be able to use next generation camera without replacing the entire smartphone :D

I am a Sony fan, and in my view next Sony flagship should have the following 10 features to succeed,
Hopefully the next flagship will be XZ1 Premium with,
1. Snapdragon 845
2. 18:9 display with above 80% screen to body ratio
3. Dual Camera with f/1.8 or better (12mp with same 1/2.3Â” sensor with bigger pixels)
4. Better image quality with less noise and corner softness
5. Better flash (More LED or Xenon)
6. Better battery with 90+ endurance rating as per GSMarena (Not necessarily need to increase mAh, can achieve by efficiency)
7. 4K display (Already got) plus proprietary VR headset (Bcz no use of 4k for naked eyes)
8. Face ID or Irish recognition (Compete with Apple and Sammy)
9. Stereo speakers with above 75db loudness (I feel can place the speakers on top and bottom to reduce the bezels)
10. And a new feature which no smartphone has done so far (Any revolutionary feature, not evolution)
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 01 Nov 2017Are you trying to say that Sony should follow the trend? Sorry dude, not gonna happen. They ... moreHahaha, you just contradicted yourself. To put it clearly, yes, Sony WILL following both the 18:9 and the bezel-less trends (thank you Samsung). If not, they will continue posting losses and will eventually sell the mobile division. The loss became true, as I said, but don't worry about what I have to say... So back as you were, continue with denial...

This year they did it. Only this stupid bezel less has covered the otherwise fantastic phones of Sony,
When their Mirai design next year goes out, it would turn everything, maybe.

Their smartphones are great in every way, maybe not perfect, but no one really is.
They have also said that they won't stop making phones in the past, and Sony is a company who has one word and stands with it.
Maybe you'll see next year, they will work on what they aren't that good at.
Being a long time SONY fanboy (14 years) I feel bad every time when I see someone blindly protect the company.
I can clearly see that right now Kaz doesn't really care about mobile division.
YalokIy, 01 Nov 2017I would blame that for their reluctance to improve their design. Maybe learn a little from sam... moreSony is Sony; sticking to what works.
I find no issues with Sony's design, but just after everyone has turned to bezel less, every people now wants Sony to follow suit. Maybe showing how well people really love Sony, that they want them to do it, too?
For shooting stills, Xperias are fantastic in daylight. No one could beat them in daylight stills. If you want low light, others do better, but Xperias are no slouch.
And hopefully next year, their deal with a US carrier would end and would give Sony the chance to fully unlock the fingerprint reader to all models in all regions.
