Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018I still use Z Ultra at home. Get a XA1 Ultra if you don't like FPS at back, it's good phone.#metoo
Does it come with a hollow tray to put it into while using phone on a desk?
Cuz else, it will be so annoying as it won't stay still... :/
Who makes these stupid decisions? We have new issues in phones like dongles, humpbacks, non-embedded fps, no fm radio, just to name a few... Why isn't this industry evolving for better?
Sweet Sony cells 2018.
AnonD-740494, 28 Feb 2018I was expecting XZ Premium design with no bezels. I was expecting the Xperia Omnibalance, mini... moreI agree.
Sony and I already divorced since the launching of this Terribly Ugly Xperia XZ2, unlike elegant Xperia XZ,XZs and XZ Premium. Even Xperia XA1 is much better looking than this swollen humpback Xperia XZ2.
If for entry level Xperia L2, low midrange Xperia XA2 and high midrange Xperia XA2 Ultra it is fine to have this "Ambient Flow" design.
Flat back like Samsung Galaxy S9 making Sony a fatty looking phone. 3.5 mm audio jack omission from a Music Company like Sony? Samsung must be happy Sony did it first before them.
I was expecting XZ Premium design with no bezels. I was expecting the Xperia Omnibalance, minimalistic elegant design. This XZ2 is ugly, no audio port. It looks like a soap.. The back is horrible. I was hard Xperia user. Now I'm out.
is this supposed to be a mid range phone Sony?
AnonD-619295, 26 Feb 2018Yeah ugly. Sony fails. NEXT!Actually, it is really gorgeous on front and side designs however the back cover design is much unique compared to Huawei Note 9's back cover design for example, but I prefer the more convenience fingerprint scanner placement designs for not always stretching finger to unlock a smartphone.
sonyzz, 26 Feb 2018Sony fan here, but i dont like the way they are going - i want xperia z design back :/ or xper... moreXZ Premium comes with composite material which produces the best designs, you only see the side plastic why can't you see the metal on the top and bottom of the XZP and the front and back is Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The side plastic allows the best signal receiving without adopting any antenna line and it has a better grip feel.
AnonD-521587, 26 Feb 2018what the hell happend to sony. I'm guessing the legal issues with the side FP prompted them to... moreDid anyone say what the hell for Samsung when their fingerprint scanner is close to the camera lens in S8 S9 designs?
AnonD-740551, 26 Feb 2018True. The Z3+ is probably the peak of Sony design. I got one and I wouldn't trade it in for on... moreYou should know one man's meat is another man's poison. But you trolling to want people remember the best design from is until Xperia Z3+.
jay, 26 Feb 2018i have the xperia ZL and it is actually a more compact 5 inch phone -.-what the hell happend to sony. I'm guessing the legal issues with the side FP prompted them to kinda change the design so they can appeal to all markets.
R, 26 Feb 2018Big fan of Sony but my main problem is the FPS on the back and the absence of the 3.5mm jack..... moreMe too! - I was anxiously waiting entire months for this... Now I can't wait until October for the XZ Pro and less likely taking a risk if it'll have this design... SD835 is still capable of a lot IMO - I'll get ASAP the XZ Premium now!
AnonD-428442, 26 Feb 2018Who wants their phone to vibrate when watching a movie? Seriously Sony, wtf?
Sony exec: "We... moreLOL! Maybe the CEO designed it... ahhh; I wonder if in an interview Kaz still supports the course Sony Mobile might be taking. This is not the 'Mirai' concept but 'Plate+Human'... though a revisited 'OmniBalance' like the 'Y' (like XZP/XZ1 with trimmed bezels) was indeed gorgeous and what I was hoping for st least in the PRO amid this '"radical" changes design-wise
Good specs though... sadly they ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack for the dongle via USB-C type (hello and welcome DRM!), no 4.4mm... the same camera aperture (possibly same algorithm software too so...), RAM and storage... not having at least 6gb/128GB UFS are hard not to mention as a step-back in 2018
R, 26 Feb 2018Big fan of Sony but my main problem is the FPS on the back and the absence of the 3.5mm jack..... moreI still use Z Ultra at home. Get a XA1 Ultra if you don't like FPS at back, it's good phone.
Big fan of Sony but my main problem is the FPS on the back and the absence of the 3.5mm jack.... Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
I honestly don't know what to do now!! was waiting for this phone to update my old Z ultra and I didn't get the xz or the xz1 bcz i made family members buy them for themselves.. and the XZP is kinda old with the SD835.. and i don't like Samsung for many reasons and Lg disappointed me once before and Nokia is going to release only Android one phones and the rest are not good or chinese and i don't trust them not after my experience with 1+1...
What i am suppose to do now Sony :/
Who wants their phone to vibrate when watching a movie? Seriously Sony, wtf?
Sony exec: "We need some new feature on our flagship."
Sony employee: "Dual camera, everybody has one."
Sony exec: "Nope."
Sony employee: "ookay, How bout we design a less bezel phone? I mean we moved the fingerprint scanner to the back anyw..."
Sony exec: "Nope, that's not it."
Sony employee: "err... okay. Well we have this new haptic motor...."
Sony exec: "Ah yes! DualShock! Just like playstation!!"
Sony employee: "well, not quite..."
Sony exec: "And for movies! Yes, like those 4D theaters. You can feel your movie!"
Sony employee: "I don't think..."
Sony exec: "Do not question my genius!"
Is it just me that this phone's back looks like Oneplus 2 ?
kofi-apraku, 26 Feb 2018No need for all that adjectives, just don't buy. Some like it if you don't it's up to you. ... moreYou have S8 plus. So you'll probably know how it feels holding this year's xperias anyways..
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018It's been declined since the xperia z3+. Sony is the worst smartphone company. HTrue. The Z3+ is probably the peak of Sony design. I got one and I wouldn't trade it in for one of these new "compact" SONYs...
