Sony, Sony, Sony, why, oh why. a little bit more screen, less bezel - 5.5 would be good with the same specs and get your tv app working worldwide so we can stream...I like your buttons on the right. My wife loves you, but hates you too.

Shame the reviewer did not mention it. Are they oblivious to the distortion issue with the XZP and, now, the XZ1?

poor sony. LOLThey only test samsung and apple phones poor site lol
Aside from joking compared directly it's hard for me to pick th winner between sony and samsung on display and camera only reason i choose sony is because of stereo speakers but if someone says apple has a better display then samsung well they are probably from stoneage

Really you are narrow minded and clearly have very little understanding of technology and how it works.

Their panels come from JDI, which is light years ahead of LG's, which is why you don't see reports of Xperia screens burning in, and the XZ1's great display just says it all.
2 - I don't care but since we're here already, I just want to say that that thing stinks. OLEDs are supposed to give a reading of 0 for blacks, not 0.003.
3 - Apple will use Samsung OLED, because they know themselves that the ones from LG are shit, and Sony will use OLED from JDI, which, again, is light years ahead.
Maybe some Chinese OEMs will make a cheap low end phone and use LG's low cost quality screens there with major burn ins.
4 - Hahahahaha. Now I am laughing - laughing at how little do you know about screens lol.
I wanted to buy Sony's smartphones for years. But they just suck in image quality of their cameras. In fact, they can hardly deliver LL performance of a 2015 year flagship phone. Even apple improves their camera. Sony does all the things beside ones they should do above all. Bring OIS, use stucking image approach to deliver better LL performance. Put hq loudspeakers. What's wrong with you, Sony?
DenisXD, 12 Sep 2017Oh the battery life of that thing!
If xz1 hits 80h, imagine the compact!Those are better battery performance figures than I was expecting, and the compact should be great I agree.
Imaging if they had stuck a 3000mAh cell in this though, likely would have been class leading......wasted opportunity Sony, and for what?

Not following the trend of bezel-less phones is all well and good but Sony appear to be going in the opposite direction and are actually increasing their bezels. Z3, Z3+, Z5 & XZ all had 5.2" screens and their widths were all 72-72.6mm. This XZ1 is 73. 4mm. Height is the same, all of the previously mentioned phones were 146-146.8mm, this XZ1 is 148mm! And that's just their phones. Look at all the other 5.2" devices without the bezel-less tag and you'll see they're pretty much all (apart from Moto lately) below 73mm. The width makes a big difference when using a phone daily.

Sony should really get rid of the huge bezels at the top and bottom. Ditch the brand name on top, we know we are using a Sony smartphone, make the screen bigger, but keep the dimensions of the device. Also the camera lens belongs in the center, so we don't place our finger in front of it while taking landscape pictures.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017yeah unstable oreo with many new bugs.
and 3d modelling is a useless gimmickBugs are yet to be reported, Oreo with if and any bugs is still more than your phone has isnt it.
Gimmicks are things that do not actually improve users experience or functionality in any way, 3D creator does add entirely new functionality of 3d rendering and printing...so no gimmick.
You just personally might not find it interesting,
as much as I dont for example 32 bit dacs in phones, as those do not improve sound quality at all, but just add extra bit of already unnecessary volume but seriously take a hit on power consumption, or dual cameras as those do not provide any more new features or functionality than single one does...
