Remember when everyone was hyping up the 'world's thinnest smartphone', making successive generation thinner and thinner? Until in 2013 we learned that you'd end up bending them - not to mention poor battery life? Yes. This is the exact same thing.
This is the exact same thing. (repeated for effect - has the penny dropped yet...?). Kind of shocking how we fail to reflect and learn on past mistakes. Bezelless is sadly nothing but a gimmicky trend that I hope dies with its fore-bearers; the curved TVs, the 3D TVs, the iPhone 6... come to think of it, who actually uses the Nintendo 3DS's 3D feature any more?
Eventually the world will wake up (again...) and demand ergonomics over aesthetics. And so this depressing cycle repeats.
I think someone in Sony needs to leave the company!
UltimateZeroSeconds, 03 Dec 2017TrueSamsungfans, I don't use any case for my Xperia. Your beloved phone must always need it be... morehe uses xzs. so xzs must be very slippery and fragile.
LOL better buy xiaomi or oppo or oneplus or the other china brands
why you guys always fighting?
UltimateZeroSeconds, 05 Dec 20171- Camera distortion happen on every camera brand include your beloved Samsung. Why the softwa... moreaahaahaa very slow company. yes samsung also had similar distortion to sony. but sam fix it in less than 2 months after the report.
meanwhile sony insisted not to fix it for many many months, they even deleted the customer report. after customers angry, sony finally restore the report back. and after many many people troll them, they finally released the distortion fix after 7 months.
sony treat their customers like cr@ps. LOL.
This is one of the reason why most people avoid xperia. if something happen to it, sony won't fix it immediately. people must argue with the technical staffs first to get it fixed. Customers are always served with the lowest priority.
boys..? Take it easy..
60ez, 05 Dec 2017thank you very much, dude. i finally admit that sony have the most anvanced technology compare... more1- Camera distortion happen on every camera brand include your beloved Samsung. Why the software comes after 6 months is because the camera distortion is definitely normal, Sony had have upgraded the user experience with adding the camera distortion rectify as a feature, because they listen to customer demands. And we can know most of the Sony smartphone come with Android 8 (Oreo) and the recent update Oreo for most of it flagships, these all you can't find on your beloved Samsung smartphones.
2- Compare to the (have the chance) burn-in Amoled screen, I will always choose the IPS screen. Btw, the 2K display is not enough for now and afterward, 4K is the future and become a basic when the 8K and 10K display coming soon.
3- Xperia UI is great!! Even my over 3years Xperia Z2 still receive the new software update to let me know the recent and development of its latest UI. It also can change Theme designs, if you have talent you also can design a theme for yourself.
4- I really don't know this issue, but I don't think you are the XA1's user. Perhaps you don't spread or trolling the news (in every Sony thread) as it is just a midrange.
5- I am not American...The fingerprint unlocks disable in U.S. maybe is a period limitations or business decisions, hope this issue can be settled. Btw, are you an American?
6- When you say this, Sony already has a stack of sensors.
When you say this, Sony already has the 4K HDR display.
When you say this, Sony already has the DSEEHX.
When you say this, Sony already has 3D object scanning.
How can you not be sad about your beloved brand? Sony hater.

R&D so quickly isn't a good decision for the China. They all just copy ... morethank you very much, dude. i finally admit that sony have the most anvanced technology compared to the competitors.
1. sony had camera distortion (but then finally fixed it after more then 7 months later. omg.. so slow)
2. sony have the most ancient display, called Lcd. Most colectors would be happy to buy xperia because of this.
3. sony also have the oldest custom ui which has never been improved since kitkat. omg.. collectors must be happy to collect this.
4. sony implement "bad touchscreen problem" in xperia xa1.
5. sony love usa very much, always giving special edition flagships (minus fingerprint) to all people in there.
6. sony is the champion of the "slowest innovation". wow.. competitors are always faster. so thanks to sony who always become the slowest.
wow.. sony is very gooood goood goood

R&D so quickly isn't a good decision for the China. They all just copy the idea from Sharp Aquos S2 and Xperia ZL. Every smartphone company can make the bezel-less smartphone, it is not a technology, it is just a trend, but when you need quality coming to your hand you need waiting for the design.
Chinese have already launched oppo, one plus, Vivo bezeless cells and marketed, But most expensive Sony have now thought off launching next year with older Soc 835, and specs are not do impressive ram and romantic specs are everywhere, nothing special, only price would be nearly 1000$ tobe sure off. Farwell Sony it's your style of bussiness, never in black, always in losses.
I think Sony with SD835 still fast in 2018. I hope so.
AnonD-392500, 03 Dec 2017All phones(Sony, Samsung, iphone, etc)need a cover. TrueSamsungfans, I don't use any case for my Xperia. Your beloved phone must always need it because it has slippery glass and fragile corners.
AnonD-392500, 03 Dec 2017Remove ZL(not all regions get this model) , Z3c, Z5c, XZ1c(compacts are not flagships and are ... moreLol obviously true flagships such as ZL, Z3C, Z5C should be removed but the XZs which you "supposedly possess" and using as your ground for bashing Sony flagships should be there on that list right. How convenient. XZs was never a flagship. It released with SD820 in the age of SD835. XZP is the flagship. Use that first and then make definitive statements. Or let me make it easy for you. It stays very cool under severe load and throttles very very less( see Erica's video) and does not stutter in games like some Samsung "flagships". Heck it even records 4K video as long as there are gigs on phone to fill and guess what, it already has oreo. Sure Sony is adamant about few things but haters like you seriously need to find a worthwhile job to do.
Prometheous, 03 Dec 2017Here you go pal: Z, ZL, Z1,Z ULTRA, Z2, Z3, Z3C, Z3+, Z5, Z5P, Z5C, X, X PERF, XZ, XZs, XZP, X... moreRemove ZL(not all regions get this model) , Z3c, Z5c, XZ1c(compacts are not flagships and are not available in all regions), X(midrange chipset-not flagship grade).
Try again... Boy
Slayer, 02 Dec 2017Jeez, what is with all the haters and bile filled fan boys on this forum? You don't like Sony ... moreyou're absolutely right, they do it regularly whenever there are news about Sony, these fanboys of other brands come to bash on Sony in a terrible and impolite way, as you have seen, and when you show them they're wrong, they either insult you or escape from the conversation, not knowing what to say because they don't have anything to say, they speak like ignorants..
and as for you, the Note 8 is a nice choice, but get a flip case/cover for it.
AnonD-392500, 03 Dec 2017Do you think glass bezels can protect the glass of phone? Huge bezels(eg. XZ premium) or bezel... moreHave you seen the you tube drop test. Xzp survives better than note 8 and he says about the repair cost not something else.
AnonD-392500, 03 Dec 201725%? You are bad at math too. Your parents will be really ashamed of you. Here you go pal: Z, ZL, Z1,Z ULTRA, Z2, Z3, Z3C, Z3+, Z5, Z5P, Z5C, X, X PERF, XZ, XZs, XZP, XZ1C. That makes it a total of 17. Let's see, (4/17)*100=23.53%. Oh darn it. Sorry pal it's a full 1.47% less than 25 %. Now I see why why parents are always so ashamed of me. Than you pal. I will study maths day and night and make up for it. But are your parents proud of you being such a troll? Lucky chaps.
