Love the Community, 23 Feb 2018So this is Mirai. A "future" of headphone jack-less phones. If Sony provides two USB-Cs ins... moreWhat if you try charging through audio jack? A good old short circuit. Besides it takes more space than 3.5 mm jack anyways.. Also to charge it, battery circuitry will be unnecessarily complicated
The design seems OK.
But still I find many things lacking here which would definitely bring down Sony sales...
01. No headphone jack, no competitive advantage
02. No dual camera in back (current trend regardless of the actual usage)
03. No stereo speakers in compact
04. Low battery capacity in XZ2 compared to compact
05. Still Sony got top and bottom bezels larger than that of S8 (Will wait till the official dimension release)
Love the Community, 23 Feb 2018So this is Mirai. A "future" of headphone jack-less phones. If Sony provides two USB-Cs ins... more Because that's ridiculous. There is no reason or excuse to remove the port. And just ask lg with quad dac or apple and Samsung devices with Wolfson dacs.
Sony is definitely going backwards again, cutting out features from the compact version. And no 3.5mm jack, seriously?
If these pics are for real then sony is going backwards. The excitement is lost.
Looks pretty good. Sony has been killing it lately. Their new devices deserve to succeed.
Oh man this looks great. Way better than XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2, those look worse Than their predecessors, while the XZ2 looks like a step forward, a different style to match the smaller bezels.
So this is Mirai. A "future" of headphone jack-less phones.
If Sony provides two USB-Cs instead of one port, that would be fine. USB-C headphones should be the future; Just ask HTC's U-Sonic.
WHY DO DEVELOPERS DIDN'T THINK OF ADDING TWO USB-Cs ON THEIR FLAGSHIP? IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!
