Many of those who bash the XZ for only having 3GB RAM, saying that it should have more RAM, even if it doesn't impact the performance at present (but for 'futureproof"), are people that contradict themselves - many of them also say they don't care about the battery life cicle (a real futureproof feature) because they are changing phones after 1 or 2 years. If they are getting another phone in just 1 or 2 years, why do they need "future ready" RAM capacity? They won't use it. They are getting another phone when that "future needing more RAM" arrives. They would pay more today for something they wouldn't benefit now, neither tomorrow. Guess what, those are the same bashing the phone for being too pricey. But they want to change their flagship phones every 1-2 years, which, economically-wise, is the dumbest thing to do. Changing phones in 1-2 years may be the norm (and cheap) in USA due to telecom contracts, but in many other countries that doesn't apply, and paying for a feature you don't use, every 1-2 years, is not wise. Investing in a gadget only because its specs sheet is great, but you won't benefit from that, is a good definition for expensive.

It so looks very niceSimplistic is not the word.
Minimalistic and elegant suits more.
And that forest blue is just eyegasm to me.
Beautiful is the very definition of this device!
Except for the thickness... -_-
Z5 managed to get 7.3mm, this thing is supposed to be thinner... I think.
Still, I want this so bad!

Tann Hauser, 04 Oct 2016Dear god, I hope so.
One more reason why I love Sony. Not everybodys phone.While the XZ looks premium, other phones like S7 also look premium.
And that really doesn't mean these phones are not suited for younger people.

I think the Sony phone that trully suits for young people is the Xperia Z5 Compact, because of its simplistic design and the yellow and pearl red color, although the Z5 compact is my phone and I'm not young, the reason I chose the Z5 compact cause 4.6 inches
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016A design made for 40+ people? That's the biggest BS I've ever read..he is right this design is very luxury and don't attract the young girls that hug their tedy bears when sleep and boys that have a collection off pokemon and starwars logoBased in their dresser . its desing is good for managers topEnginers professors masters and reach puple and government !! this design is for top people that can't anyone percept it.

this phone is really really targetted for elder people (above 40 years old). lol.
Design is very luxury and future proof it is not suitable for childish taste from this days . Younger people choose juvenile design and infantaile and coloured GUI like miui and lg and even samsung . For example in older days sony design experia z2 and z3 that competitor of them galaxy s5!! in this time you can look at xperia z3 and xperia z2 and you say wow they are awesome and beautiful after these years but when look at galaxy s5 you want to evacuation your stomach fast as you can in nearest wc. But galaxy s5 sold very well and more than both z3 and z2 and people on that days had this opinion that galaxy s5 is awesome with better design ! Most of the Smartphone buyers is teenagers and young people that in this days untill 40 years old you can address them, children !! sony must start a new design for add more purchaser.

but this is just my personal opinion ;-)

Most people including me find the XZ look premium and stylish.
I dont see whats wrong with the camera placement. Some other phones have the cameras placed at the left corner too.
