AnonD-170381, 03 Mar 2018Thats why it exploded . Forced them to take a step back and its 3000mah now in s9 .
talking a... moreWho exploded? Galaxy S8+? It is 8.1mm thick and didn't explode, but holds 3500mAh battery. Same is S9+. Why you speak about Note 7???
Are you blind fan? It is obvious that this design is wrong and backward.
And I speak as XZP owner. But maybe will be my last SONY phone.
It's about performance, quality and reliability, nots all those gimmicks you just mentioned.
Sony designs and mfgs quality products that last.

talking about awkward finger print position cough cough s8
AnonD-170381, 03 Mar 2018only at the middle . the side is 9mmIsn't it thick enough? 9mm in edges and 11.1mm in the middle? Samsung put 3500mAh battery in 8.5mm phone with better camera, without hump and without humongous thickness of 11.1mm. And with 9mm edge they were unable to implement FPS side mounted?!? XZ Premium was only 7.9mm thick and have side mounted FPS.
Xperia S is amazing phone, better then many today.
I think LG G6 has the first best design then followed by the Samsung s8 but what appreciate from Sony is that they change but also don't change. You'll still see that it's Sony and that's what I like and gets my respect. Where everone tries to compete with (copy and adapt) Apple Sony is still Sony.
Few very serious flows:
1. Thick as elephant 11.1mm.
2. In this thick body only 3200mAh battery.
3. Moving FPS on most inconvenient position.
4. Removing 3.5mm headphone jack.
At first sight... i hate this design.. but after watch several reviews from youtube.. finally i found that this design is so UNIQUE and DIFFERENT.the more i look, the i fell in love... and i will replace my XZ Premium to this XZ2, because i love big screen.
Sony was different always, and thats why we loved it.... But now it just looks like they have decided to copy other brands......NO Sony
Best design is for XZ2 among all of the Smartphones ... Good job Sony keep moving
Sony skip mirai design!
Hayaan Mo Sila, 03 Mar 2018Everybody hated OmniBalance, for a fact that it has been the same thing for 3 years. If they ... moreYou are wrong or just lying. People never hated omnibalance design. But they criticized Sony for big outdated bezels. Get your facts and arguments correct. Sony just needed to reduce bezels, polish omnibalance, use better materials and definitely keep 3.5 mm in place. They did everything wrong. Now Sony looks like noname Chinese phone at x3 price and without 3.5 jack.
Hayaan Mo Sila, 03 Mar 2018People messed up Sony.
They weren't supposed to replace the OmniBalance design, but the s*ck*... morewhy dont u just admit the facts that sony is the loser?
the old designs are ug|y, the newest design is even uglier.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 03 Mar 2018But still, people are blinded by the bezeless trend, they forgot one thing that is the most im... moreFinally, someone with logic and brain. Well said.
Oh, I know people will probably start accusing me for Sony fanboy, don't care. For the record I have used iPhone, Samsung and Xiaomi, and I liked them all. But I like Sony the most.
So don't call me a fanboy for just appreaciating arts that are Sony's designs.
This is why I love Sony. I don't care about the thick bezels, I care for the sharp and rectangular looks that's all Sony. It's just so elegant and beautiful from every angle. Just stunningly endearing.
