This is what happens when companies come under public pressure who themselves dont know enough about design languages. The omni-balance design was perfect since 2013 till 2017 even Samsung adopted it after S5 & Note 4. You just cannot improve what is already at perfection instead this happens! pathetic design of XZ2.
I still own a Z5 as my daily runner and design wise & software wise, i still dont think that my phone has become outdated.

unless, i spend a few hours photoshopping Yosuke Someya of sony mobile and the MWC 2018, you can see for yourself
Sony had always been known with its cornered/angled design. This round design is very much looking with its competitors and I didn't like it.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2018too long.. didnt read.
so what is your conclusion?
you dont need to write very very longTL:DR version:
This is a shiny version... it's not very practical, ergonomic, or user friendly. It's a step backwards from the Z3/Z5-designs which only needed small tweaks to make them superior. This overhaul is simply a "me too" design that does no favours.

Im quite sure they are merican all the way.
As they always complained of no working fp scanner on Xperias, which is only in merica.
Also employing in San Francisco, New York.
Staff members all have merican names, certainly not bulgarian or indian.
Look it up, or ask them yrself if it is not clear.
Dont know where this bulgarian/indian info comes from, as it is waaay off.

The first is based in Varna, the second in Sofia. The first have one so called reporter in US, but they are far away from US office. Most of the staff is Bulgarians plus so!e Romanians.
I like it how they missed out the Xperia T because they actually went backwards with the design of that one seeing as it used the design of the Xperia arc/arc S ..not moving forwards at all there.
The x10 should have been given a mention considering it's what started it all off
cheebc, 04 Mar 2018I still love the OmniBalance designSame here! Which is why I had my Z2 for two years, and Z5 for a year. Best phones I had design and UI-wise. 😉

Vegetaholic, 04 Mar 2018Sony design team is probably one of the worst in industry. Last really good looking Sony phone... moreyes yes you are right.
sony loses their 'ericsson style'.
they cannot create good design without ericsson's help
