my old moto g 2015 captures better photos without overshapening and same with my lumia 1020 , iphone 6 plus and nexus 6p
Nope nope nope nope. Z2 is the last Xperia device deserved the flagship title.
It's official : Sony Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact Will Lack Fingerprint Scanners in the US
Tourettes Guy, 13 Sep 2016How would you do that on a 5.2" screen? Nexus 6 has 6" screen so bezels are easily manageableWell, I'm not a engineer of any kind, but I bet that even new 5.2"-devices could be produced with higher screen-to-body ratio and stereo front speakers than they are being made now. Yet another throw-back from the golden stone-age, LG managed to come out with these: 5.5" G3 had ~75.3% screen-to-body ratio and it's older brother, the G2 with 5.2" ~75.9% screen-to-body ratio. I bet there would be more examples, some even more recent than these, but these clearly show that a small 5.2" is possible to make with very slim bezels.

Nexus 6: ~74.1% screen-to-body ratio. There's also even a better, more recent example; Huawei's Mate 8 with ~78.0% screen-to-body ratio. Why not utilize this kind of screen-to-body ratio on these small phones as well (as long as durability remains).
[deleted post]It is anyway a good start for comparaisons, hard to find on other sites.
for the noise just appear on zooming but details is much more than others ... but sony has a 21.5 mp sensor .before they use it on xperia xa ultra and even motorola moto x force. this sensor capture high resolution pictures without noise !! why sony don't use that ?!
CK, 13 Sep 2016You both can go to Samsung or Apple. Sony is just not for you.Why only Apple or Samsung? Why not other manufacturers with actually interesting phones? Sigh again.

To the autors: why there is nothing about audio quality, external speakers, call quality?
Can you addmthis to the preview, despitenthe fact that software isn't official and it is pre-relise unit?
I have always loved sony, but please, its 2016, get rid of that top and bottom bezels, been a fan of the z seriies when it first came out, but that bezels never made me buy it, and here in 2016, the bezels are still there, never bought a sony since sony ericsson K750i
