im talking about good camera + thin bezel.
only china,... moreHuh?
Some Chinese phones have small bezels yet I could hardly name any of them with better camera than Sony's flagships.
Let alone Huawei with even larger bezels than Sony

Anonymous, 07 May 2017And where you think Sony will put the camera module?
Outside the phone? So it got less bezel LOL. what do you thing about samsung and china brands? those brands have bezelless body with good cameras. LOL. i know sony cannot do that.
sony's engineers have to learn a lot from samsung's and china's engineers. those brands can put great camera inside bezel-less body. sony is still thousand miles behind them in terms of design.
It would have been a great phone if they would have reduced the top bottom bezels by few mm.
My only complaint about Sony's midrange is the lack of fingerprint reader. It is not a high end exclusive anymore.
Hopefully the battery life really did improve as per what was shown here...
The XA which I had drained the battery like water leaking...
AnonD-523334, 06 May 2017I'm OK with the "brick design. But what's the point of selling this phone? Hah? totally imbala... moreNot every country is like India where the most bang-for-the-buck phones are readily available. Here, we don't have Oneplus, Xiaomi, or ZTE, or even Honor. The mid-range is something that should give you considerable performance without much futureproofing, example is the Xperia SP from 2013, it packed plenty of power, but it only has a dual-core processor and only updated till Android 4.3. If you want to compare phones, also think about it's availability globally. The XA1 packs decent horsepower, but is in no means a top contender. It's as if this phone was built to get things done, and it can do those things in fashion. If you want to play Crysis on your phone, then get the OP3T.
Great phone for single handed compare to those 5.5 junk. Good battery life and full HD or HD doesn't make noticeable differences in a 5 inch frame. Good one from Sony and I'm getting one to replace my 3 years old z1 compact.
VoloKin Project, 07 May 2017Sony will never learn. People are complaining about those bezels and the bad speaker but Sony ... moreSony can only hear those compaints if you join their forums or if a person emails them. They surely don't read the comments sections. It's as if Kaz Hirai was commenting in GSMArena, but no, they have much more important things to do and if those large bezels really were that important to us, a consumer would have emailed Sony already, but I think only a few had done that.
boohoo, 07 May 2017we dont want bezel-less, dear baby.
we want them to reduce the bezel size, not remove it.

Romie Lee, 07 May 2017Wtf! Those bezels are useful? lol They are horrible imoImagine fitting a 1/2.3 inch sensor in a phone that thin with reduced bezels.
