AA, 03 Sep 2018Not a lot of Sony (Xperia) fans these days. A lot of them were disgusted by the 'Ambient Flow'... moreActually SONY poured too much at marketing. Xiaomi even doen't spent money for market but has earned its reputation by offering the phones with super value of performance to cost.
It is age of Internet, market promoting can do less than offering good product at good price.
Sony is offering bad product and asking for good price. If such company don't fail, there is no justice for makers.
Walter C. Dornez, 02 Sep 2018Dude, the Pocophone is great, but I doubt Sony fans want to get it.Not a lot of Sony (Xperia) fans these days. A lot of them were disgusted by the 'Ambient Flow' thicc design since XZ2, and the removal of the headphone jack. They have moved on to other brands.
Indeed, it isn't about the specs... it's about value for money. It's hard to recommend the XZ3 to anyone other than the most hardcore Sony Xperia fan, especially when you look at the other phones released around this time.
Don't take my word for it: watch the sales figures of Xperia phones decrease with every quarter. And it's not due to a 'lack of marketing' as some Sony Xperia fans have suggested.

Are you high bro?!
Pocophone F1 is certainly targetting a different audience, XZ3 has many things your F1 could only ever dream of. Build quality already tells most of the story.
Besides, any phone is overpriced nowadays according to your standard. But you seem to keep the blame on just one phone when they're plenty of them.

What a time to be sonyfan, for the same price you can have last years iPhone that is faster than xz3 or if you want android you can have the same chipset with more memory and common features for half the money with pocophone F1.
Most common sonyfan counter-argument to cheaper phones with same chipset is that they dont care that much about chipset, when that is the case why not buy xa series for less money?
Xz3 seems good value only when you compare it to more expensive sony like xz2p.
