No headphone jack, no buy. Just bye-bye.
Hello Sony. Xperia user here for ten years.. Since you removed the earphone jack.. May you loose value in stock market n loose billions....sales will be very low in history

"Other changes include moving the fingerprint reader to the back and removing the 3.5mm audio jack."
Good luck selling the most hated two changes .

[deleted post]So true lol. V10 one of ugliest lg ever, S6 edge plus used to have this phone oh man when you compare it tomthe latest Samsung Galaxy’s this thing looks like sleepers lol other phones don’t know about might be some cheap end droid phones.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2018But fingerprint was because of patents.
And again the people were not the direct main issue.... moreNo its actuall was of greed and to take money from Sony which was right not to pay them because Sony had the original patent. Because we know that Japan and their tech companies so they have their own patent rights and globally too
I know Sony messes up sometimes but they will succeed even if they remove the 3.5 mm jack and who knows they might put back as Samsung did with S6 and for the fingerprint they will do under glass with JDI so no worries

And again the people were not the direct main issue. Just an indirect side effect.
[deleted post]oh my God the Xperia E4 was so damn very greatly ugly... I think I was using an xperia M2 when that sh.it was launched. Liked what sony did with the notification led of the M2.

They cancelled music ID why I don't when they could have made like Soptify and shazam and there is a lot of things like that. But today what happened the media played big role
For the fingerprint we all that the smartphones will do soon fingerprint under the glass so in the rear this time for Sony temporary but Lets' see what is important that they succeed and by the way the XZ2 Pro/ Premium is missing from the renders so let's wait
KamAbdi, 25 Feb 2018I understand what are you saying and I as I told you earlier that if they made the ominblance ... more They didn't do it simply because the people comparing. People complain about every move every company makes for any product. That will never change. They did it because they keep making poor decisions. That's the point. It's indirectly in part because of people but not directly the result.
They could have just as easily made the right choices and been perfectly fine. But their ceos and team leaders make horrible business choices.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2018What I'm saying makes perfect sense and you just don't want to accept it.
This is a continuin... moreI understand what are you saying and I as I told you earlier that if they made the ominblance with slimmer bezels it would have worked but at the end of the day people would have said it is still the same and is this what they call the mirai so that's why I was telling you that you don't understand but at the end of the day that's your opinion and I respect it.
But know this that Sony had a design change in the FCC and they may change things so lets wait and see what happens. Besides, if they present the Acoustic Surface Audio and it will be the show stopper
Thus Sony is so Rad!!
KamAbdi, 24 Feb 2018LOL I can pare and it ok when they were criticing their camera and no phone is perfect but wha... moreWhat I'm saying makes perfect sense and you just don't want to accept it.
This is a continuing result of horrid decision making. Not because of the market.
They only did it indirectly from the market because they continue to make poor decisions and foolishly thought it would make a change.
Although in the end as crappy a decision set as it is this could still help them if they actually released it. But they won't even do that. Very few people in the markets will go on the Sony site to drop top dollar on these all at once.
I've never run a company before but even I could being them our of the dark ages.
I just want to see Sony actually reach their potential and show us what real flagship they could release and take over the market.
But it doesn't seem like it will happen.
KamAbdi, 24 Feb 2018I'm not slave or being offensive or defending but you people are judging the company for noth... moreUnlike you I'm actually a Sony fan. But I can use logic and see things as they are. The devices are very nice and elegant. But lackluster in some ways, a few quality flaws that have held them back, and with poor release and marketing.
This has made them an after thought floating along except to their fans. The real ones and sadly the occult like ones that troll these pages.
So yes. When I know they could be so much more and with ease it upsets me. And with how much it's their own fault and could so easily be changed if someone else made the decisions I'm going to call it like it is.

You can state this is not what your are doing all you want and that on not stating facts all you want like a crying child. But it doesn't change it from being the reality.
I'm not judging and I'm not you people. I just gave a factual reason behind a poor decision. And you are getting upset and defensive about it because none of your occultists can bare to read one single word about Sony if it's not praising Sony.
[deleted post]I'm not slave or being offensive or defending but you people are judging the company for nothing because you were the ones who demanding Sony to change so suck it up and take it and don't it was their fault and honestly I'm really getting tired of you and other people saying Sony screwed Sony as if they didn't were part of the problem.
Look at the media when this phone gets out and see what they write about it and watch the reviewers then you will understand what i meant and if you don't then your the who doesn;t want to understand so bye..... whatever you say i won't reply it so say whatever you want
Tango., 24 Feb 2018Sony travelled in time back to 2012 I guess... but nobody on their right mind would really cri... moreI can indeed criticize them in some.areas for specs and build quality because they are not perfect and flawless.
Like the image ghosting of their displays, screens that cracked excessively easily, and how generally with most Xperia devices one itty bitty little cra k meant the touch stopped working in almost every single case. And the sudden death issue that effected almost every model for years. That seems to be and is hopefully finally taken care of or at least heavily addressed and minimized. Especially since their customer service is almost non existent
They will tell you to go to a site like Amazon and search for a part yourself if you don't have warranty. Even though it's a manufacturer defect. And even if it's something that is your fault they are still losing out on my and customers by not providing repairs.
And generally no. Occult like followers who think they are Sony fans just swarm every Sony page worse than people do on their apple ones to flame anyone who doesn't 24/7 praise Sony and claim it all as hate.
Sony travelled in time back to 2012 I guess... but nobody on their right mind would really criticize Sony for it's top-notch hardware specs, build quality or innovations (that later all the other brands apply as a default, standard functions... and we praise them and even defend them in front of biased critic-motos like: "useless gimmick"... even though for me 2:1/18:9 AR it is)
What some of us can't even comprehend, design-wise, is if that was the direction Sony need to go as for a "radical" change to the old-good Omnibalance... they seemed to redesign the flawed X design concept (excluding Performance, maybe? All of this is subjective...) and mix it with a bit of Neo, SP, even HTC U11, HMD-Nokia and some other generic copy-cat, low-budget chinese Android phone... plus their "Plate+Human" concept leaked in 2015... a soapy, glossy, pregnant bathtub!
They were starting to nail it with the outcame of XZ... returning to a brilliant series after Z3/Z5 (which was dropped dead) but instead chose this path?
IMHO there were other enormously concerns and areas to look up to, other unfulfilled request, matters to attend to and fixes to be made by Sony IN ALL THE DEPARTMENTS AND LEVELS OF THE COMPANY instead of this...
It feels like their Mobile division is strategically lost or as if their own goals and perspectives are their most dangerous enemy... they finally lack personality and confidence to brand, announce or market these new family series:
