Use Sony dedicated headphones.
Sony phones have lower headphone output voltage than most, around 0.35V, rest go for about 0.7V. While its better for battery consumption and signal to noise reduction, it requires lower impedance headphones to offer same volume outputs.
NonSony headphones are of average 32-50 ohms, Sony headphones are usually 16-24ohm, so provide much better volume for 0.35V output.

Cargo Joe, 13 May 2017Best Sony phones so far. Sure the 4K isnt always on but who needs 4K screens to view apps anyw... moreWho needs 4k on phones period.
You cannot see the difference between QHD and 4K on photos, in fact you could hardly see it between FHD and QHD...
Sony is killing functionality for the sake of gimmicks.
4K screen = lower battery for things you can barely see = gimmick
FF speakers= much greater footprint for tinny -still- sound = gimmick
Been on a few blogs and one topic that seems to be common is the low volume level when playing media and music via headphones, I've got a pretty good pair of Marshall cans and and checked all sound options via settings, raised level as far as possible yet the sound level is very low compared to my last HTC 10 and other phones I've listened to of friends devices, I estimate the level is around 20/25% lower than I'm used to, I understand that Sony may have set sound levels at a level to protect our ears however I consider that this is a personal choice and even if a warning of high volumes notification comes up its still my choice if I want to max out listening to AC/DC, the sound quality is superb and playing via a separate Bluetooth device or my Bose sound system is awesome quality big tick there!! But such a low volume level via headphones is not what I expected and pretty disappointing to put it mildly, I proberbly expected that the many volume boost Apps available would do a raise and I was correct they are all a waste of time and don't do anything to increase sound volumes.
So Sony please do a sofware fix this frustrating issue to otherwise a Great phone.

You all trolls misleading people, that's all the reasons!
What I believe is that Sony is using large bezels to give way to the upcoming xperia edge
The successor of imx400 at IFA 2018 will hit like an atomic bomb.
Just wait next year ...
What GSMArena and a lot of reviewers failed to mention, is that Xperia phones (X and above) support PS4 Remote play. This is a great plus for PS4 owners, where they can play their PS4 via the phone's screen. Question though: does Remote play support 4K display?

all sony's phone make many people confuse. because sony have crappy marketing department. thays why they always fail to sell xperia every year.
most people (even the reviewers like gsma and techradar) dont know the exact resolution of the screen. many reviewers also state that the frame is made of plastic, the other say it is made of metal.
Techradar states it uses the true 4K resolution at all times, not only while showing 4K content, GSMarena states it does not. Who is correct?
Quote from Techarena: "You wonÂ’t find a sharper screen on another smartphone, and unlike its 4K-toting predecessor you actually get the full resolution all the time. The Z5 Premium would only deliver the full 4K experience when you were watching video of the same resolution, whereas on the new Xperia XZ Premium itÂ’s 3840 x 2160 all the way Â– from the home screen and browser to the app store and your social media profiles."
Tann Hauser, 05 Jun 2017Your worst nightmares are coming true... .
XZ Prem is out of stock already on uk and german ... moreBased on Hauser's info people should also be afraid of the fact that similar seems true for the HTC U11:
Not sure why stock levels should be scaring anyone in the first place mind??
Must be something to do with fanboy mentality, hmmm.........
Think about it, ironically the only people this is likely to bother would be those who were actually going to buy the XZP in the first place, i.e. Tanns fellow Sony fanboys for the most part.
I mean if you don't like Apple, then does an iPhone being out of stock really bother you???
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2017These is the reason why I'm really digging the Pixel/Pixel XL. The Pixels and the XZ are smoot... moreNever actually used a Pixel, but I'm betting there's a good reason it's received all that praise for its camera.
