If Sony still can't bring fingerprint scanner to the US model, why don't just sell EU model on the US then? Since most people would likely to flash the EU ROM anyway
I always liked sonys phone designs. But now, it looks just outdated (at least for a flagship).
Pity about the antenna lines, they ruin Sony's otherwise lovely design.
My 2014 Z3 is still one of the nicest looking phones ever made, only the original Moto Z comes close.

Not one going here with extra bass, the other one there with extra higher frequencies....
Thats not stereo, that is...I dont know what that crap is. Dual mono sound?
ArchitectofInvention, 31 Aug 2017XZ1 has 3D Creator. Does your phone have it?Yep, 3D printing, AR avatar and model making possibility is a WoW in this one :-)

I am impressed with 3d Ceator tho.
Unique feature for doing your own AR content and Avatars, and even better...for the first time in mobile...3d printing.
Thats innovative enough.
ArchitectofInvention, 31 Aug 2017XZ1 has speakers that are 50% louder than Xz. Go try it before you speak! Same old claims with same old results.
I'd be happy to be wrong though. And even then would only finally bring them to normal levels. Though is a good start.
So my point is still factual and still stands
Not too bad. Especially having the compact again. Though it was rude to take away HDR and 3.1 type c from it. Maybe also 720p.
I can't wait to see what Sony does next year as since the premium they final started trying again.
If they would just upgrade to more powerful speakers, use a better aperture, maybe combine eis and ois with maybe slightly bigger pixels, and for crying out loud if the phone is huge out a huge battery in.
Then release it in other markets and advertise and bam!
Sales will definitely go up.
It's that simple. Yet they hold themselves back still

its quite obvious to me the XZ premium is the star of Sony's lineup. Not impressed with the XZ1
Azy, 31 Aug 2017Boring....XZ1 has 3D Creator. Does your phone have it?
Swim Swim, 31 Aug 2017Nylon is cheap, and not durable, doesnt belong on flagship phone.
As for those who complain... moreNylon plastic is more durable on phones than glass, isnt it?
And those antenna lines are...nylon plastic covered, are they not?
But being shallowly put on top of metal, so prone to scratching and damage.
Isnt then plastic nylon side frame with antennas underneath, like on XZ Premium, a more durable, logical, and thus premium build?
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017sony need a lot more customers. glad they finally realize that, and decided to ignore fanboys ... moreOh right, Smartie...
Design with Antenna lines will boost the sales, no doubt about that...
And Bezeless is helping LG sales like a thunderstorm...
Its only logical.
Again with the small battery!! why Sony, why in hell?
Your phones are amazing Sony, why would you shoot yourself in the foot with a small battery? Why?

As for those who complain about bezels and design, I for one like those because makes the phone more practical to use. I care less about looks but more about practicality and durability. Sony serves those who also on the same page, if you dislike the design, thats very fine, then you can choose because every other brands using samsung no bezels design, therefore you have so much choice. While us bezel lovers barely has anything, leave me Sony, you can have others.
Just A LITTLE HINT: Assuming Sony switches to amoled and bezeless design, then whats difference will have against other companies? NOTHING. In that case Samsung the only winner , because if the phones look the same, the only thing left is brand strength and added softwares to phone, which will always be Samsung's forte, most consumers doesnt value stock like exp. So think about this. Switching only benefits to Samsung, Sony would lose its niche,
Therefore Sony Xperia XZ1 convinced me, metal unibody thats perfect, and no more than 1080p excellent.
