AnonD-665723, 18 Jul 2018That's Sony's innovation. How to loot from customers, lol 35 USD for a dongle when you can buy... moreSony ditch the 3.5mm jack because they bring the smooth Ambient Flow design for comfy in hand, recently we see a lot brand follow Sony adopt glass back for the phone but Sony show it wireless charging with portrait and landscape displays methods and upgrade the comfy holding phone experience with balance curved glass back which many phones cannot and they can only have flat back. Meanwhile the waterproof tights must be even better than previous flagships because less hole or port.
Sony just released the XZ2 Premium for the market and now they are releasing an XZ3... Why Sony? You will have 4 flagships in 1 year. Better release the XZ3 next year with the new flagship Snapdragon chipset.
Fake... maybe it's the XZ2 P and was wrongly typed when uploaded or is a phishing website
Anon.D, 18 Jul 2018I'd rather have a notched display than having a phone without a headphone jack. I'd rather have a phone without a 3.5mm jack than having a notched display phone
I don't think it will be priced at 988. It will be $750 or at tops $800
already? didn't the XZ2 just come out like 2 months ago?
i guess that's what you get in an overcrowded market...
I miss the omni balance look. 1080p, SD 710 and all band support for Tmobile (including 71) would be my sweet spot from sony

I call these statements BS. Both manufacturers want PROFIT$$ from dongles to "FEED" their ELITE shareholders.
Anon.D, 18 Jul 2018I'd rather have a notched display than having a phone without a headphone jack. Yee, same here.. Don't want a dongle whenever I wanna play music in my car or on my home stereo, not everyone has Bluetooth enabled stereos 3.5mm jack is such an essential thing.

Well let's be honest most of their customers are their fans because majority of people avoid the Xperia brand.

Absolute fake news. Who is going to pre order a phone that's not even officially leaked and spec by its OEM. Haters every where trying to kill XZ2P sales. Since the Official leaks of XZ2P GSMA and unknown sites have been flying rumors of XZ3 even though Sony never did. Sony will only show something at IFA, which is very normal.
I guess the reason for removing the headphone jack on XZ2 is because in Sony Mobile's home country, most Japanese are iPhone users, which generally means the iPhones they have do not come with a headphone jack which isn't a surprise IMO. Sony Mobile is simply trying to target Japanese iPhone users who are already comfortable without the headphone jack.
jack, 18 Jul 2018i dont like earphone jack, never use it and it is hole where rain can drop in. useless hole.. ... moreI use the headphones about 95% off the time (I never use both though) when listening to music, YouTube, tutorials, movies.
And guess what? I do this most of the time INDOORS.
As for the safety thing, so what?
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2018So a jack is for only listening to music outside? Will the removal of headphone jack stop peop... moreAgree with you here. Seems that Sony HASN'T LEARNT from their MISTAKES from XZ2 that headphone jack is an ABSOLUTE MUST given how they used to favor Hi-Res Audio on their jack for their flagships until XZ1. What happened after XZ1? Sony Mobile decided to pull a DICK MOVE by OMITTING the headphone jack on XZ2 and claims it's removal due to Ambient Flow design language. What BS is this! There is ENOUGH space at the top/bottom to INCLUDE the 3.5mm jack. I had thought XZ2 Compact will at least KEEP the 3.5mm jack but alas, it is the SAME as the taller sibling for god's sake! However, my guess for the reason of removing the headphone jack on XZ2 is because in their home country, most Japanese have a recent iPhone without the 3.5mm jack, and Sony Mobile wants to attract existing Japanese iPhone users who are mostly comfortable without the 3.5mm jack. I hope Sony Mobile GOES DOWN in it's sales due to the REMOVAL of headphone jack on XZ2 & upcoming XZ3 flagship. Feel free to agree/disagree.
