Sony.. had its own class, superior qualities products never campare with others....
With those huge bezels, still nope.
But one positive thing: battery size is finally on par with the competition. In 5-6 years there is a chance that Sony phones will be fully on par with the competition.
zanbay, 14 Jan 2018When samsung has changed the design team, they have produced s6 and s6 edge which had big sale... moreS6 look exactly like s5.
Just changed from cheapest plastic to glass.
S8 and S8+ together wont hit 80 million units of S4.
It's a mid-range phone, those who are complaining are comparing it to flagships.
Might get the L2, if the build quality's decent. I no longer REALLY look for great specs, as most phones, including this one, provide great value for money specs wise. If the build quality is still plastic, I'm going to have to go for the Huawei P9 lite 2017, despite being a diehard Sony fanboy. Sony needs to step their game up when it comes to build quality on low end devices, please no more plastic. Still love Sony though
When samsung has changed the design team, they have produced s6 and s6 edge which had big sales. HTC couldn't catch the wind. Sony, I'm sorry but same. There are alot of things to learn from other chinees companies about design. Nowadays ppl want to see something different. Samsung s8 and mi mix were the pointbreak of changing. Apple with iphone x, done good. But now the target has rised upper. SONY WAKE UP. You can do...
NST 2015, 14 Jan 2018Flop mobile brand...stop making phones. 50% s2body ratio in 2018...its a joke...and no 18:9 di... moreFlop comment...stop posting comment. Your blind hateful comment shows how ignorant you are. XA2 is the best premium midrange phone.
Sony is becoming a joke in the smartphone world.
May as well go all out on low spec phones because nobody buys a flagship phone and thinks Sony. They had a niche with compact flagships couple years back and flopped that.
This mid-range phones are already left in the dust compared to Samsungs new Galaxy A series.
No point Sony even manufacturing them 😂😂
Flop mobile brand...stop making phones. 50% s2body ratio in 2018...its a joke...and no 18:9 display.

Also stuff like AR, some mask effects, panoram... more...how does it compare to lumia ui / similar ones having all settings at once changing them with One touch? Also iso is still in menu. Raw hidden. If you like to shoot you will also think twice with blurry edges, because they are.
Sony Xperia L2 could be better with Qualcomm Snapdragon rather than Mediatek. They could use much older SoC such like Qualcomm Snapdragon 625.
Xperia phones need to undergo plastic surgery of "liposuction" because asking them to take diet pill on Xperia will be not good enough.
Xperia XA2 could become the "cherry blossom" of XA Series if they will use OIS on the rear as opposed to OIS on the front camera for Xperia XA2 Ultra.
Mid rangers such like XA2 offering flagship features is a surprised since Sony has never done this before. Entry level L Series getting fingerprint sensor is a very non-Sony pattern and it is even rare for any companies to offer their entry level with fingerprint sensor. Even Xiaomi the budget king did not put it on their Xiaomi Redmi 5A.
Someone Else, 14 Jan 2018This is actually the first midrangers from Sony that is actually worth buying.M5 was better than Z1.
Full HD, cpu as strong as SD 800, 13MP selfie, ip68, 4K recording.
X has SD 650, stereo speakers, 64gb, full hd, imx300, 13MP front.
