1. When it comes to processor performance and control. Apple has it. Sony doesn't.
2. Where's the Face ID on the latest xperia device with TrueDepthCamera?
3. In storage. Apple has 512GB model. Sony currently has 64. And is dependent on memory card.
4. In Augmented Reality. Apple has already made a lot of AR apps. How many AR is it on the sony part?
So you think that iphone has nothing?
KamAbdi, 11 Jul 2018NO other chinese phones have waterproof and and everything and are lower or the same price as ... moreExactly. Sony phones have the best durability on the market. Excellent building quality and massive housing.
Just check any waterproof tests online... I usually run into the pool again and again making cool 4k videos with my xz premium. It's amazing. Happened multiple times that it fell to the pool from my hand while recording a video on a slip way with huge speed. No problem at all... Massive phone. Respect to Sony

Wireless is the future.
Sony is more than a brand name and that's why people should buy them, yes they have mistakes but it compensate by other things the put into the phone, not like the iPhone who has nothing and not even trying.
Crackling Doom, 11 Jul 2018OnePlus offers prices at a very competitive and very aggressive price point. Sony doesn't. Son... moreNO other chinese phones have waterproof and and everything and are lower or the same price as the oneplus
Actually Sony offers but you and the other people doesn't want to see.
NO phone offers better durability than the XZ2 and its proven
You think the onepluse is enough for his price ???
The I will tell you, he couldn't do the wireless charging and the ip rating because it would have increased the phone's price by $200 and that's why he doesn't want to lose his price tag, also another point to mention, the price of onepluse is increasing every year by $50
With bezels you can hold the phone in one hand and start video recording with the same hand. It's not possible without bezels and of course dedicated shutter button...
I think xz2 small bezels are even a bit small (but nice and acceptable) to comfy use the phone as camera.
Prometheous, 11 Jul 2018Everything is true. 100% agreed. But Sony should try to make their phones available widely. True and expansion but first it must be desirable so they can increase the shipments of the units.
[deleted post]OnePlus offers prices at a very competitive and very aggressive price point. Sony doesn't. Sony marks-up their phones nearly as much as Samsung or LG while offering...well, not much more than OnePlus.

Anonymous, 11 Jul 2018Iphone has less features, ppl keep buying themPeople that buy iPhones buy them because they are iPhones. For the most part, iPhone users do not care about specifications of the phone, they just care about the brand name.
So, what's your point?
..an awesome design is missed Ring in endless looping flat circle..! To Sony..! Use it: unique design..
tazcubed, 11 Jul 2018What sucks about this, isn't that the XZ3 is coming sooner than expected, but rather it's alre... moreXZ3 will be to XZ2 Premium what XZ1 was to XZ Premium.
It is a small version without 4K screen.
XZ2 Premium is not global device, but restricted like XZs.
There are still 4 devices for this year, 5 FCC ID showed up since june, one is XA2+.
Still unclear if XZ2P is the main phone this year
Oppaii, 11 Jul 2018I really agree. Brands are pushing their costumers to use wireless earphones/headphones, they ... moreExcept you can use wireless headphones with phones even IF they have a headphone jack. I refuse to buy a phone without a headphone jack because I find it very inconvenient, I can use wired OR wireless headphones and I can watch videos/listen to music/play games while charging my phone. Why pay more for less features? It's mind-boggling to me that people are actually applauding removal of useful features and being limited with their choices.
It took Sony a long time to catch up on the following:
- bezel-less phones
- fingerprint scanner on the back
- dual cameras
- 18:9 ratio
xperimen, 11 Jul 2018Hmz... I understand this jack love thing but I think new Sony wireless headphones and earbuds... moreI really agree. Brands are pushing their costumers to use wireless earphones/headphones, they start to remove the jack from their flagship then eventually mid-rangers too. Wireless Headphone is much more easier to use than with wires (i don't mind charging it since it juss takes 30 mins) especially if you use Sony WH-H900N
tazcubed, 11 Jul 2018What sucks about this, isn't that the XZ3 is coming sooner than expected, but rather it's alre... moreTotally understand with you! This tempo is too fast and generates high amortization.
But xz2prem will be not outdated with xz3. Xz2 will
Ellio74, 11 Jul 2018Well, that's cool, for people taking selfies at least.
Being a Sony article, I'm waiting for ... moreDual front camera trending now... I am not a hardcore social media user but have many selfie pictures about me and my family... so it can be a useful improvement ...
Better front camera pictures are welcome i think.
