The comments here are entertaining, informative and tiring all at the same time.
I can't even deny the facts why Sony phones are hated and why we came to love these devices all at the same time as well.
Dual heatpipes, 20 Jun 2016If you read my past comments, you will know the Korean is tricky, they pay trolls to bashing o... moreYup....thats only Korea....no other region or us or anywhere ever did the same, or simply out right bashed, or anything else in terms of tricky, dirty, or anything. Everywhere else are angels.
Oh wait...this is reality...you're just delusional
Drape, 20 Jun 2016I hope Sony mobile would keep their mobile business exclusive in Japan only. They will never o... moreAre you kidding? There are a billion broken and shattered xperia phones.
And you know what's even worse? With most models as soon as there is light cracking....some even just one not so bad crack....digitizer it out. Touch dead. End of story. Expensive repair. And half the time most places can't or won't properly seal it again afterwords so the display is fixed but the phone is no longer water tight.
And sony only plays quality whole samsung only plays numbers? And you guys wonder why you get called out so much and have so many comments that you choose to only refer to add haters.
It's that kind of ignorance and apple fan like claims. Samsung is not advanced because their name is samsung or because they are popular or because of nice on paper looking specs.
It's because they are one of the biggest and richest companies around with strong foundations in almost all areas of tech required for the mobile industry.
They are among world leaders in memory production and chip development and fabrication.
It's simple fact. Has nothing to do with who is a fan of who.
They simply have power, money, factories, lots of research and development, and because of all this they have very advanced technology.
Grow up and deal with it
[deleted post]I used some Samsung phones and an Sony Z3. Sony is much better.
Avan Dr, 20 Jun 2016The better explanation is Apple is special. The build their own OS, and its enough to make the... moreGood way to extensive exaggerate all that in favor of apple while severely under exaggerating it for Sony.
Time to get off the apple control train
Well, I have ordered an international version of the XP. Should arrive in about 2 weeks (ordered directly from Hong Kong, therefore takes more time, but much cheaper, 615 USD inc. tax). For this price, I would not think it is overpriced anymore.
I think the best way to determine whether a device is good or not is to try it yourself. Everyone is different. I have been using iPhone for over 7 years and am feeling I am done with it. So, try something new, maybe you would fall in love again.
Christian, 19 Jun 2016"Apple followers live in a different universe, they're more than happy to pay for mediocrity."... moreI don't trust the blind test, it is non-professional at all, because the frame size of the photo obviously show the phone identity.
I check the details and review the photo taken by iphone S6 from the Google+, it take a quite good picture but the image under shade is mess, so I can't agree you. But, the X perfomance is more details even the object under shade and back-lit.

Link I provided shows almost same color reproduction as oled, and very deep blacks for ips lcd, including high brightness and contrast...
That screen is to a naked eye closest to that oled screen of all there...
So how come someone concludes its the worst screen when olwd is proclaimed as best?
Because some numbers sheet?
On camera again
I give up on blind people not seeing most detailed and color accurate, sharp producing, with no ghosting or artefact fullness camera...
Just wait for dxo mark numbers then, if you love the numbers that much....
Ali Bashir, 20 Jun 2016Never mind, you don't even have to reply, none of them is going to say 'oh yes you are right s... moreExactly, whatever you or I point out, theyll just ignore it and call us delusional sony fanboys....
Thats all they call discussion.

--, 20 Jun 2016Last year = 4k screen
This year = back to full hd
So it means gimmick. Even last year they d... moreIf Sony make this 5inch screen for 4K available, then you will trolling it is no much difference by use the 4k in a tiny, then if it is a 6inch screen with 4K display? You will trolling battery hunger, then if it is 4K 6inch screen with big size battery,you will trolling it is very heavy and thick.
I remember when Sony get most of their flagships with waterproof feature, the Samsung and Iphone and a lot competitors trolling..., then Samsung get waterproof for it S5 then S7, do they feel the shame? When they said it gimmicks?
--, 20 Jun 2016Why u said i'm koreans? Are you jealous with korean`s samsung and lg? Lol.If you read my past comments, you will know the Korean is tricky, they pay trolls to bashing on other opinion page, just like here, China also do well on this kind of business.
Christian, 19 Jun 2016I will jump the first part of your reply as dont know what are you talking about.Crashes,secu... moreLmfao!! With apple you see all this??
And you say phones can't cost that much but then admit its r&d lol wow
I hope Sony mobile would keep their mobile business exclusive in Japan only. They will never outperform Samsung in terms of market share because majority of the population doesn't know anything about technology all they know is the higher the number,the better. Sony phones never competed in terms of specs, their approach is similar to the concept of steve jobs which is maximizing efficiency of the phone in daily life. Even if they make their mobile phone exclusive in japan only i would still find a way to get it. If you could have a chance to see whats inside a xperia phone you would be amazed on how it is well engineeried and compact. But then again majority of the population is dumb about these matters, I challenge you to interview a veteran local mobile repairman. Sony phone has only generic scratch resistant screen vs gorilla glass of samsung. Well most of you would prefer the gorilla glass because of they told you it is harder than steel but guess what there are plenty of galaxy phones that are being repaired everyday because of cracks and big scratches yet my xperia phone doesn't have any scratches nor cracks and i never put any screen protector or case in it. This proves that specs doesn't matter at all, real life performance is what that matters. Another example to be fair : Galaxy s7 12 megapixel camera is better than Sony's 23megapixel camera.
Tann Hauser, 20 Jun 2016I stand corrected, X Performance gets 139 000 on antutuObviously. All the Chinese phones get around that too, because they have lower resolution and the GPU score is slightly higher.
You shouldn't cite composite benchmarks unless you actually understand them. :-)
Tann Hauser, 20 Jun 2016Whats with these numbers. Yeah, X Perf is even better in screen than X And X screen compared... moreHe did prove you wrong. Inaccurate colour calibration on the display, poor camera, poor battery life, and poor structural integrity. Apparently you don't even understand the numbers he showed you, so you're clearly not qualified to be assessing the quality of a device. You should just listen to others when they tell you Sony's devices are poor this year.
Tann Hauser, 20 Jun 2016Agreed ;-) Most pleasant looking video recording too, due to sony stabilisation.Did you not see the camera review? The camera is worse than the competition for both taking pictures and videos. Even if you're unable to tell the difference yourself, gsmarena have put it into words for you. And that's even if you look over the lack of 4k recording.
mir, 20 Jun 2016Better to be sarcastic than a delusional sony fanboy.Right...
Always the same, cant prove me wrong.
not on screen quality, not on camera quality...
Facts are there for eyes to see.
Something else smart?
