GSM Arena is just being honest with the phone reviews, so that's why Sony's get a bit negative reviews. :) But they will say all the good things about every phones, if there are any, like this one has a pretty good battery life (surprised me) and the camera seems to be okay.
Sony will never learn. People are complaining about those bezels and the bad speaker but Sony doesn't seem to care.
shino03, 06 May 2017Gsmarena really hates those bezels. I wonder why? I find them really useful.The bezels are unnecessarily big. It's like 2012 all over again. :D Or maybe even 2011?

For instance Mi Max that I poses have 33% better battery endurance even the battery is 60% bigger along with 23% larger display that is still FHD compared to this Sony & Snapdragon S65x series are certainly still not depreciated regarding neither performance nor futures. Peple tend not to understand how all RF & mixed components aren't made (nor will ever be) on a FinFET which do make a lot in regular every day use.

But 650 and 651 and 652 are ancient technology processors, should not be even selling in 2017. 28nm manufacturing technology is simply obsolete, consuming most of its energy to heat not to work. If you need more performance (but why, it is only for 3D gaming) you should go for 820 or just wait until this autumn to get snapdragon 660...
What the hell O.O
A 72hr endurance rating from this 2300mah battery compared to its predecessor's 54hr endurance rating??
Didn't expect that at all. I can't believe what I'm seeing.
This phone is f****** awesome :D
Anonymous, 06 May 2017Nah nothing to be impressed about. A3 2017 achieves 93 hours with 2350 mAh battery.Well considering A3 is just 4.7inch and packs a weaker SOC plus 14nm architect....... It's 93h battery isn't anything to be impressed about either!
Anonymous, 06 May 2017Sorry but 72h is bad for a low power SOC. I think the snapdragons are much better in this ca... moreSorry, you think wrong. A5 scored 95 h having 30% bigger battery. That is worst result than Xperia...
Not bad at all, maybe the price is a bit high, but the rest is nice for a mid range phone.
Can't people on these websites these days ever just stop with all the negative crappy comments?? I mean,if you don't like it or don't want to buy it then don't & leave the comments to interested people. Am so tired of boring,pointless comments. People say 'oh,it's a crap phone' how do you know when you ain't used it?? Get a life

It also has better camera than A5.

Isn't it stupid for u to come here because u said Xiaomi phones are cheaper? If that's the case then go look at Xiaomi. No one even ask u to be here
