Still the 4000 mAh battery along with only 12 Mpix camera and some other creeps among all of the flagships devices of 2020 this going to be the most weak one.
Been using Sony Xperia smartphones since 2015... nothing to complain about...

This is why... moreSony remains the best android phone manufacturer despite their poor market technique, I'm from Zimbabwe, I can't find Sony Shops. Right now I'm using XA1 Ultra...

Cannibal from my brother dead Z ultra Rom Bios Brick for the touch screen make the back camera blank maybe because the service guy roughly not careful to open and replace, well i can't blame them.

Vivek , 30 Oct 2020Waiting for Sony to lounch its smart phones in INDIA back again... I am a big fan of Sony xperia phones and I am sad that they've stopped selling in India
pan, 30 Oct 2020i dont think so... except for xz1, sony updates the software for 2 years, updates for 3 years.... moreAll you Sony guys say similar things like Chinese devices stop working after a year, start stuttering, etc.
Your opinions will only resonate inside the Sony echo chamber.
Open your mind and stop with your fear mongering.
The public have already made these phones a hit and they are pretty happy with it with none of the issues you mentioned unless you go as low as 50$ smartphones.
As I said, no amount of bashing Chinese phones or upvoting pro Sony posts will help people change their minds.

Cheap phone made for quick sell but how long will they last for this low price? For this low price you WILL HAVE TO BUY another one in nearest future. You get what you paid for. High quality long lasting phones are not cheap.
abigfanoftechs, 29 Oct 2020Imagine Sony bring back their compact phones again with these specs. :-)As I know Sony will release Compact phone next in 2021 year as well as Premium. Let's wait and see. I hope Sony will. I will be interred to buy Premium model.

Seb, 28 Oct 2020Sony is the king of the technology!!! And the best smartphones is Sony !!!! I heared this many times that Sony will not sell smartphone in future because market is too small and other reasons like not enough Sony fans around the world an so on. But as you can see Sony sell its smartphones every year for over decade now and more likely will in future. Sony does not make phones only so Sony probably can effort to make smartphones even if market share is too small.

This is why... morei dont think so... except for xz1, sony updates the software for 2 years, updates for 3 years... and android phones are still usable even without updates, like my miro... no more updates on z1 compact and z3, my z5 premium still notifies me with a patch, but havent downloaded it yet...
and those low price arent meant to last long, as it will start to stutter after a few months, at least from what i observed from workmates preferring a budget and midrange phones, it is okay with them since they are used to change their phones annually...

This is why their marketshare goes up up up while Sony marketshare dropped to almost zero now.
