Sony! You better make this 1 Right. As I'm Very Disappointed every time you announce a new device. As a Loyal Fan of Sony I've Been Waiting for you to include a OIS which is very very important n very very common hardware in a flagship phone nowadays. and everytime u fail to include it. My 1st Android device is an Xperia S follow by Xperia Z then currently using Xperia X. been waiting to change to new Sony Xperia for years nw. Please! I Beg You! Please Include a OIS to XZ3
Sony to release the XZ3 earlier? Something smells fishy here!
And no matter what sony may release. It might not be able to compete with asus phone.
Syuser, 08 Jun 20181. This device have a scanner for middle/lower/smaller fingers and the only flaw is your think... moreI feel myself stuck with my back to the wall fending off both Sony haters and Sony fanboys.
1. The scanner location on XZ2 is uncomfortable. On XZ2C it's okay but a side scanner would always beat a back one.
3. The camera is great, but not as fantastic as you describe it. It would benefit from OIS. Oh, and having a wide-angle second camera would be awesome.
4. Not sure about the screen (it's good but all flagships have good screens nowadays), haven't had a chance to try out speakers on other flagships, but yeah, battery life is awesome.
Syuser, 08 Jun 2018Then go to Cosmic radio detection or X ray medical departments and share your wishful thinking... moreNot if it miss newest features in smartphone photography. They mistake photography with something that does not evolve. It miss a lot of features you can find in S9+, iphoneX,... and not just in camera field. Number of surprises it brings is just not enough.
XZ3 comes with slim design and dual camera, but thats what is seen in other brands for some time already, its not something that will make different brand users turn to sony.
Sony wants to just survive, but its not the right attitude.
Syuser, 08 Jun 20181. This device have a scanner for middle/lower/smaller fingers and the only flaw is your think... moreYou're obvious fan. You can't accept the reality.
FPS is on most uncomfortable position. If you don't believe me - look at youtube. Every single review mention it. I personally tried in the store and is absolutely stupid, to put it almost in the middle on the back. Take the phone in position your thumb to reach middle of the screen and then try to touch FPS. Unlucky.
Camera? Yes, Sony makes the cameras for Samsung and iPhone and in the same time their software is the worst! Again, all sites and reviewers in the net are on the same opinion. Even try PhoneBattles - he is a die hard Sony fan, but also not happy with XZ2.
Battery - ok, speakers - quality, but very low. Screen - maybe one of the best LCD, but still - LCD, not AMOLED. No true black colors.
And I'm speaking as a XZ Premium owner. Like the design as a whole, defiantly not like plastic frame, defiantly not like the camera in low light especially.
And removing the headphone jack is humongous - the inventors of the WalkMan remove it... Speechless.
Welcome to the real world.
Better to ignore the parishioners of Sony. They will only try to eat your brain. Oneself can not see when is blind and even with that huge and overrated piece of brick. And, of course, all overprice with several flaws.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2018All brands get hate here, whether it's Apple, Sony, Samsung, HTC, LG or Chinese companies. Don... morelf you are given the power to bark something on a global platform (aka so called social media), 90% of the people will 90% of the time post hate and opinionated BS.
Brandstifter, 08 Jun 2018That's exactly what I'm doing. If Sony go bad again, I'll drop them again just like I did back... more1. This device have a scanner for middle/lower/smaller fingers and the only flaw is your thinking.
2. The thickness in this case is for better handling with a special designed body - so not for every new noob in town.
3. Camera have the most performance image processor that some other third party apps can manage it twice better than its stock (Sony's usual issue) with results far beyond any Korean imposed Galaxy or even lost in space by broken windows of Nordic pureness. Only a true photographer can approve this!
4. Now battery, speaker and screen quality is over competition at least in regards of its price tag.
What you are doing here (and too many as you unfortunately) is too obvious: trolling by insolence!
vrvly, 08 Jun 2018I wish o hear some xperia rumors about something different than just camera. Any?Then go to Cosmic radio detection or X ray medical departments and share your wishful thinking there. It's too obvious that in this thread it's about a smartphone with a top audio-video-photo performance.
Zenodroid, 08 Jun 2018So you are the one responsible for the fires in Denmark? :-P dangerous nick you have chosen ;-)Well, I decided to stop using homemade explosives for nicknames and settled for something more peaceful... ;)
Yann, 08 Jun 2018Stop being a fan and think objectively!
First - Lumia design was very good, but Microsoft rui... moreThat's exactly what I'm doing. If Sony go bad again, I'll drop them again just like I did back in 2016.
Lumia design was okay (even though it was borrowed from iPod Nano), but it was distinctly different from Sony designs and absolutely not fitting an Xperia phone. It's a pity Sony killed their beautiful Omnibalance for it, looked so much better.
Yes, the scanner position is tolerable on XZ2C and bad on XZ2. Side scanner was better. It's an obvious flaw, even though not a major one.
XZ2C is compact. And thickness has nothing to do with it, it's width that is important. XZ2 is too big for me, but it is more comfortable to hold than LG G6 (which was my phone before XZ2C) due to the round back.
Regarding the camera, I see that you'll believe what you want to believe. No point in arguing.
And if you are mostly using your phone on the table this phone is definitely not for you. Especially as it lacks "double tap to unlock" for some ridiculous reason.
Brandstifter, 08 Jun 2018It's funny how Sony did almost everything right and still get the hate. They ditched the ugly... moreSo you are the one responsible for the fires in Denmark? :-P dangerous nick you have chosen ;-)

First - Lumia design was very good, but Microsoft ruin it. Make a difference between 930 - made by Nokia, with ceramic buttons and beauty design and 950 - rounded plastic garbage.
The latest good design was XZ Premium, which i own, but the frame of the phone is plastic - big mistake.
Second: the screen is with smaller side bezels, but top and bottom are huge and usefulness. they can easily fit FPS in the bottom bezel, instead to put it on most inconvenient and most uncomfortable position. Not to mention that the screen is still LCD, when AMOLED is much better. Even Apple admit it after 10 years.
Third: Compact phone?!? XZ2? Are you crazy? It is the thickest phone on the planet!
Four: Really good camera? Are you blind? Every Chinese 200$ garbage can do good pictures during the day. In low light Sony XZ2 is shit as my XZP. I'm sick and tired to make manual adjustments every time and miss the moment.
Five: Comfortable to hold and awful to operate when the phone is on the desk or table. The phone is wobbling all the time. Not to mention how to unlock the phone on the table when the FPS is on the back.
I wish o hear some xperia rumors about something different than just camera. Any?
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2018All brands get hate here, whether it's Apple, Sony, Samsung, HTC, LG or Chinese companies. Don... moreYeah, and Sony has real issues. The software isn't as stable as one could expect, the buttons somehow make it very easy to unlock it while in pocket (almost never had this issue with other manufacturers), XZ2 is very slippery and has a glass back...
But instead of bashing them for these issues people just make up some new ones. Sony makes the most affordable 845 flagship, yet they whine about price. And so on.
I mean yeah, Sony phones are overpriced, but less so than other flagships (except ones by some Chinese brands). The damn bricks are getting more and more expensive every year.

Anonymous, 07 Jun 2018well there go all the xz2 premium sales....
why would anyone who wants a sony phone now much ... more- 2k screen against 4k
- 128 GB ROM against 64GB
- 18:9 aspect ratio against 16:9
- Probably Japan only against internationally
Therefore, expected sales figures of either devices unlikely to affect each other.
sony release their flagship smartphone twice in a year....
