EX(peria) Customer, 27 Feb 2017Many Sony fanboys justify the HUGE top and bottom bezels to having to do with the dual speaker... moreThat's your opinion. In my case, phone is perfect. Also the so called phones you mention, like ZTE, they are available only in specific areas, thus even if i wanted it, i cant buy it.
So dont compare phones which are incomparabale. Compare it with Samsung, Lg or any other, which are worldwide available. Design is as it is, some will like it, some wont. In fact, human mind is so preverse, that it doesnt even know what is okay and not anymore.
Lg just unveiled phone, and as expected some doesnt like it...
So what the hell are manufacturers supposed to do???? Please tell me. THey change the phone and loose some usual customers, to get few new ones?
Ppl didnt like XZ design, didnt like Lg G5 design....now they dont like LG g6 nor XZ. What the hell are manufacturers supposed to do???
Many Sony fanboys justify the HUGE top and bottom bezels to having to do with the dual speaker setup and to allow for a thinner phone where the internal components of the phone must be positioned at the top and bottom to accommodate a larger battery BUT this:
Notice the ZTE Axon 7 has the SAME 5.5 screen size, bigger battery, BETTER stereo speakers to include TWO DAC chips, and is still the same thickness, shorter and narrower than the monstrosity which is SONY's design philosophy.
SONY does not need LG G6 or S8 thin top / bottom bezels BUT come on, they are really stretching a 5 year old joke now.
They need to REDUCE these ridiculous top / bottom bezels already.
the very first question in my mind was, "where is Sony going with their naming scheme?"
X, XA, XZ, XA1, XZs
-Premium, -Compact, -Ultra
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017And all that fancy camera-tech will be crippled by Sony's not-so-fine-tuned -camera software. ... moreSOny xperia xz dont use the best sensor:-):-)...that why they lose in camera war but their camera is one of the best...but this time they are using new camera sensor:-):-):-):-):-)sony xperia xz use imx300...sony xperia x performance use imx318...
Sony back with glass sandwich design with the xzs and the xz premium even take it to the extreme, wraping the phone with glass.

Tann Hauser, 27 Feb 2017Omg, the nonsense you just spoke out. What does your personal opinion on postprocessing in au... moreWell, I'm certainly not the only one saying the same thing about their post-disastering. It has always been behind rivals which also use Sony's technology and get much better results out of them. If you had your eyesight fixed, you'd see the same thing and stopped this nonsense defense-thing you have going on for Sony. No matter how many times you use the word "nonsense", you're still blind for Sony's faults due to extreme fanboyism. That's not healthy behavior.
OH MY GOD!!!
Give me a break, with all those great thing, New camera, 4k ( u guys always hated xz for not being 4k) , 4gb of ram ( for those who always say 3 gb is not enough), u all compared xz for not being shiny as S7 Edge ? ( Now xz Premium shine the hell out of it's back)
Now that u all cant find anything bad to bash it then it come to the bezel ???
PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK !!!
Sony needs to do something about their big top and bottom bezels vs. the competition. They could at least put off-screen buttons at the bottom of the phone to free up a bit of screen space, like Samsung has been doing up until the S8, it they couldn't cut them down a bit
Best news from MWC is the return of Nokia. The return of the king. Nokia is basically offering affordable Nexus devices to us. Sony has never been a king for mobile phones. Sony is better off sticking to PlayStations and making films.

Sony never Copy other smartphone and alway the world first. good job Sony
Tann Hauser, 27 Feb 2017You are kidding right?
4k HDR screen and DSLR grade stacked camera sensor are leaving all chi... moreThat's all fine and nice, but the *phone* is still being designed and built in an ancient way which doesn't allow for thinner bezels all-around (it only shifts them to the top and bottom). That's what I mean.
Given that Sony's is known for selling those great components to other manufacturers as well, you may start to get the importance of my point...
Sony moved the side bezels to the top and bottom :/

What does your personal opinion on postprocessing in automode of previous Xperia cameras have to do with any tech advancements and innovations?
Please, dont post if its utter nonsense to begin with.

It always goes like this, year after year and seems to never change for better. :-) I know you have blind faith for Sony, but the rest of us know the truth.
