Anonymous, 05 Jun 2017That way you end up w very bad things. Only certain years produced great phones. Others not so... morethat's your opinion , I think SAMSUNG made good phone ,only bad thing is aspect ratio of the screen and as usual their software but they made some other small improvements... LG is asking to much for SD821 and midrange camera sensor and they also opted for crappy aspect ratio like samsung did but at least they finally improved the looks abandoning stupid modular design and removable battery... SONY stayed great as always , most complete package with all features that I need . Only one that is downgraded is HTC going from bad to worse , I'm really starting to hate them .
There is nothing bad in his way of buying phones , I would do the same , rather than going for midrange phone because even two year old flagships are better than most current midrange offerings .

Samsung downgraded, LG downgraded, Sony remains as bad as ever... Probably only HTC moved forwards. So next year they'd still be bad phones.
what will be the price and release date ?should i wait for it or go with the mi 6
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2017Don't trust fake reviews. And don't look at benchmarks and other useless things. Go for Sony. ... moreMy 8 year old omnia HD works fine. That doesn't mean is the phone that everyone should choose right now

BigDaddy99, 04 Jun 201768hr endurance rating may be ok in 2012 but not in 2017 where most phones get upwards of 80hr.Yep but Sony phones are generally renowned for poor to moderate battery life. The low light studio pics aren't great either.
As expected, that pathetic battery life, just buy Mi Max 2 if you want a phablet.
naap51d, 05 Jun 2017That's how I buy phones. I NEVER buy this years new best thing. I wait and buy LAST YEARS ne... moreSame here...
Although, I do wait for 6 months instead of a year... but, yeah, I agree...
Cheapskate and practical people like us don't get influenced by the hype.
Ritzie, 04 Jun 2017Given its price & performance, it's more feasible to buy last year's flagship phones.
Eve... moreThat's how I buy phones. I NEVER buy this years new best thing. I wait and buy LAST YEARS new best thing. For one, it's typically 1/2 the price, last build of the product line, all updates usually installed, bugs, that might have appeared with the new model, have been addressed.
For a cheapskate penny pincher like me, better bang for the buck.
Merry, 04 Jun 2017At least battery capacity should be 4000 mah... Even mate 8 is more powerful than this phone a... moreMate 8 is the Huawei's high end of 2015.
It needs to be better.
Mate is better than P series

A website of my country performed a battery test of XA1. Many apps like games ( pokémon, asphalt 8, mario) , messengers, email, youtube, chrome...
SoT was 7 hours.

BigDaddy99, 04 Jun 201768hr endurance rating may be ok in 2012 but not in 2017 where most phones get upwards of 80hr.My point is every people still will charging the phone every day even it is 80h.
The most important it battery is strongest than all the competitors, the battery lifespan is double up. Qnovo battery charging tech is great and practical feature for this phone too.
The selfie led and OIS help taking better photo especially when the phone is attached on selfie-rod will more shaking than holding by hand, the OIS help avoid shaking and led help to capture in low light and indoors. And that's is all the great hardware work inside a phone.
Interesting 2/3 bad points not relevent to Europe. The one I have certainly has Stereo Speakers and a Fingerprint sensor.
Should also add - best battery life ive had from a phone in while, 3 weeks into use.
