With this "new and innovative" design, Sony stays on the track to keep losing its market share.
If they put FPS on the back for XZ Premium succesor, or XZ2, I'll not buy more Sony phones.
This position of the FPS is deal breaker for me.
Thesis86, 05 Jan 2018I like the colors. I don't mind Sony keeping bezels. I don't mind if Sony still keep their bezel. I think their huge bezel is kinda unique. Simply, get Sony for big bezel and other brands for bezelless.
-. -, 05 Jan 2018Motorola still use sd 626, xiaomi still use sd625,
By next year, they will be more sd630 phon... moreXiaomi was already used SD660 in Mi Note 3. Motorola was already used SD630 in Moto X4. Asus already used SD660 in Zenfone 4. What Sony's top mid-range chipset? Helio P20. Xiaomi, Motorola and Asus will used SD670 or SD640 while Sony just start on SD660 or SD630.

Really looking forward to Xperia L2. Hopefully the build quality's just right (maybe finally use aluminum on your lowest-end phone? Or a mixture of aluminum sides and plastic/polycarbonate back), because, honestly, and this comes from a Sony fan, the L1's build quality's wasn't the greatest, especially compared to Xiaomi's devices in that price range. I really like the design of the phone, 5.2inch seems to be just right.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2018Terrific Quality, Performance, and durability for Sony cells. Only true Sony cell owner... moreFor the mid range and low end, yeah I have to agree. Ex-M4 Aqua owner here. But I got a Z1 Compact for € 40 just for fun from eBay, and it is much better. I still won‘t use it as I already switched my real phone to an iPhone 7.
Zero, 05 Jan 2018I see the L2 using SNapdragon 450 instead of 630I see the XA2 using Snapdragon 615.
These mids indeed look great.
Guess the FP on the back will solve the US patent problem nonsens for Sony.
Hope it stays on the side for the MWC flagship one....
I am really grateful to have had the old design of sony (xz1 compact)
This new one is ugly
Huawei is more quality and advanced technology with half of the price
AnonD-635604, 05 Jan 201821:9 such a ridiculous screen ratio on smartphone. What is 21:9 for? Only to watch movie? Then... more18:9 is a big and ridiculous compromise too. Screen too small (Narrow) and at the same time phone too big/tall. For the same dimensions you get less screen and smaller picture, and the phone is not just ugly, but not suitable for both compact phone lovers and big screen lovers.
Meme Super Rage, 05 Jan 2018Sony, if the L series have SD 630,the XA one must have SD 660. Nice design though, better than... moreHonestly it looks like Xiaomi Smartphone (Xiaomi Note Series) but with sharp corners
AnonD-244086, 05 Jan 2018Where is sony 21:9 phone?21:9 such a ridiculous screen ratio on smartphone. What is 21:9 for? Only to watch movie? Then how about other apps? Is it all avalaible in 21:9 . No, right? But some contents are move to 18:9 not 21:9
Habib Briziek, 05 Jan 2018Sony fantrolls are hilarious.... Some say keep the bezel, other saying great design not copyi... moreI'm sony fan but i hope for bezeless sony smartphone. IMO Sony can keep the bezel but don't make it too big like their phones.
"Ultra" series finally gets fingerprint sensor!
If they keep the price competitive it's very attractive
[deleted post]LOL. aaahaahaah with this kind of design sony will fail again this year
