I believe this is the first phone that ships with Oreo. That is awesome. The battery could have been more and the design is getting long in the tooth. But otherwise it's a pretty good phone. And thank goodness it still has the 3.5 mm headphone jack! :P
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017Speaker beside usb sucks. The worst place ever... It is for iphone wanna be phones... True in case of a single speaker, put another one on top and the result will be much better plus you'll kill those damn decade old bezels.

i hope next year they will focus on thin-bezel designs too.

Everything seems perfect to me, except the design. Its about personal taste,and I didnt really like xperia design since XZ. If they use Xperia XA design with the same speaker placement, reduce bezel just a bit, aluminium body...boom! I'm sold.
Ramouz, 31 Aug 2017Those edges will hurt when holding it :(. I've had phones like that in the past and it did hurt.Yeah, that's why I won't bother to buy these. Not comfortable to hold.

Trump Fan 1980, 31 Aug 2017 I like that this is running Oreo. I'll bet that it's speakers are relatively quiet. Maybe ZTE... moreOr maybe next year, when they finally use oled, expect downgrad on selfie camera though

Still no RAW shooting? Sony, it's almost 2018! Just do it already!

Damn it. Why is the home navigation key not Sony's one? It feels like it is not using their own launcher. The rounded key makes it look like Google's smartphone. And does the back look like matte similar to XPERIA XZs?
I like that this is running Oreo. I'll bet that it's speakers are relatively quiet. Maybe ZTE Axon 7 developers or Nokia 8 designers can assist Sony with the development of handset speakers that can be used extremely loud (maybe Dobly Atomos should be considered as well). Sony could be looking to start shipping models with thin bezels within two years, if rumors are correct.
Xz1 can be used as 3d portable scanner , impressive, you can create a 3d sculpture of yourself!
Just keep the overall shape, put a 21:9 screen that kills all the bezel and the front facing camera, put the stereo speakers on the top and bottom sides, the earpiece on the back along with a small secondary display used for taking selfies and video calls using the main camera. Is that too hard to do, Sony, or any other manufacturer for that matter??
there is something that i like about xperia design, something that i dont know how to say. even if the design is rectangle, but still..i want it
2700mh battery......z3 has 3100 ..... this will have shit battery life....like all those who came after z3.
Sony ....new more"efficient" processors and more "efficient" OS is just a dream .... if you keep the sizes of a Z3 why not put a similar battery in it also ?
