While XZ2 is line up to the center much cleaner and more unique.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018XZ2 design reminds of xperia ARC and somehow a blend of lumia 925!For your information, the Lumia 925 back cover design has the ugly speaker bar and the extra large camera lens is weird. While the XZ2 has a good looking arrangement for the back cover and doesn't have the ugly speaker bar but have dual front firing speakers and Sony claim that is the loudest Xperia speaker.

3D Memorys, 27 Feb 2018You trolling without a clue, the XZ2 compact has IP65/IP68 certified - dust/waterproof.Further looking down specification. The condition is now back same as Z1. When ports are in use protection is downgraded to IP65. Likely USB port will also have detachable cover.
pikapoo, 27 Feb 2018wht hppn to your favorite brand? releasing ugly phone like this.
i think the previous design ... moreYou should know the font of the XZ2 significant less bezel design is really really gorgeous! The back cover is a refreshing design not like other cheap China design because it has the centered line up design for all its sensor and camera lens and the fingerprint scanner, it is simply a looking into a curvier aesthetic for the back cover. hey if you want the nearly no bezel design you will be got the ugly notch just like iPhone X.
XZ2 has wireless charging Qi so your trolling are total without a clue.
ren122, 27 Feb 2018which company didn't compromise sensor size for bezeless?Except itÂ’s not bezelless. Bezels are still very big. They just made display a lot higher without moving it down, completely killing one-hand usage. Therefore killing fundamental idea behind Compact series. They had to fit it with current XZ1 design (sizes).
Unless you donÂ’t understand meaning of those figures. This means it has downgrade conditions, which service would always rely on, if anything goes wrong. Basically IP68 is there for marketing. IP65 is actual specification.
ren122, 27 Feb 2018sony should have just kept their omnibalance design and just made it bezeless. keep the headph... moreYeah, I hate the new design also! Tge monolithic design was the main reason I went with Sony. That and the updates. And now no 3.5mm jack.. :((
BUT, nobody stole sht from HTC. The new design is a remake of the older model Xperia ZR. Just saying..
This is sad... Especially the design & removing the 3.5 mm jack.
It's like after Sony took one step forward, they took three steps back... SMH.
ren122, 27 Feb 2018which company didn't compromise sensor size for bezeless?S8's front camera has a sensor size of 1/3.6" and 8 MP.
Pixel 2 XL has a sensor size of 1/3.2" and 8 MP.

Now its back to same adapters.
That is not advancement of anything, but going backward to 2010 level of sound and music experience.

That cold, industrial boxy look complements me greatly (big 80s fan). I dunno why I never purchased a Sony phone.
Personally, I always felt the design of the XA or XA2 shud of been their flagship design.

Phone May work/look good but if you get any problems, especially network problems in phone, the service after sales is very worst especially in Bangalore. I have faced same issue with Xperia SOLA model and I had to go around consumer forum to get my money back.Sony never cares about after sales services.

i think the previous design is better (except the huge bezels). they should use the previous design but with reduced bezels, keep the earphone hole, add wireless charging, and use oled.
Seeing this design I think Sony should sell their mobile division. What a pathetic design by the designers at Sony. Expected a great design from them. Even Samsung, Vivo, Xiaomi is better at copying designs and implementing them, forget bezel less device I thought they designed a look-alike of Nokia.
Sony should stick to 4.7" screen for the compact and make a smaller body with 18:9 aspect ratio. There are people who love small phones and the compact line is where we look at. I've been a sony fan since sony-ericsson but they're always playing catching up.
Comeon sony.. you can do better or be the best if you want. I'm starting to loose hope sorry.
