Tann Hauser, 14 Sep 2017There will always be people that dont follow trends just for the sake of it.
Those are people... moreSo essentially, the thinkers buy Sony, the rest buy Samsung or Apple....right?
Ahh Tann, for someone who would never 'debate the hipster kids' you don't half share their simplistic world view. You know, I dare say there are people even smarter than you like to think you are who buy Apple products, they may even have different reasons for doing so.....
Just food for thought though eh. Anyway, seems to me that Sony are as much a mainstream electronics brand as Apple or Samsung. Sure their market share in the mobile space ain't as big, but they are still a household name, Were someone really interested in bucking a trend, well they'd likely make a far better statement of it by buying something like an Essential phone....
okcn, 15 Sep 2017Remind me who makes Samsung's camerq sensors.with the same or even lower quality sensors, samsung can produce better pictures than xperia. sony dont have good software skill
So many haters. They talk shit. Don't trust them and buy Sony. I've used many brand phones but Sony is the smoothest.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2017That doesn't even make sense. Yes the quality of the speakers slightly improved, but you'd thi... moreNot with one DAC, as it splits signal to duo speakers. You have an option of mono sound in accessability options, hat adds extra db to volume.
Only with maybe two DACs could they make hem even more louder.
But its nonsens, I find even my X Perfor speakers quite loud, and XZ1 is indeed quite loud, and because of equilizer preset, quite easy on the ears too for longer listening...Some people may prefer other eq setting with higher hf and somewhat more db....but I personally dont enjoy listening to music extra loud with high noise...maybe if I was in my teens Id be saying otherwise tho.
But really, the sound on XZ1 is superb and quite loud for stereo speaker
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017because they are not smart enough to make it louder. their software skill is terrrrrrible. ju... moreThis XZ1 uses newer amplifier that delivers 50% louder volume. I think sony has already solved the weak volume issue.
Phones dont change people's appereance. If you are an ugly person, you would still ugly even if you own the most beautiful phone in the world. So better stop this bezel war nonsense
Hmm... So hot debat here as usual... I am now using S8 and I do love its beauty and performance so far, it has been 4 months away... But honestly, if I have more money, I will still buy this XZ1 coz despite the top and bottom bezzel is rather big for today standard, in overall the design and look is still suit to my personal taste of ellegance... S8 is definitely not ellegance, S8 is futurictic.. Yeah ofcourse if Sony can make those bezzels 50% narrower would be a great deal for me...
UltimateZeroSeconds, 14 Sep 2017I don't trust Samsung tech with recalls twice for it related explode cases. They maybe would p... moreLike the motherboard failures and self cracking displays on Sony.
And the second battery failures were due to a manufacturing defect in rush from lg.
And deny all you want but their safety is obvious now and among the best.
And don't know why works better but their new battery saving tech is legit.
Which is better been the samsung and Sony we shall see.
AZIB, 14 Sep 2017It's about quality vs quantity...ur choice...That doesn't even make sense. Yes the quality of the speakers slightly improved, but you'd think if the xz1 has two front facing speakers, it would be one of the loudest phones.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017qnovo is just an useless gimmick. unproven techI don't trust Samsung tech with recalls twice for it related explode cases. They maybe would promise twice...
Qnovo battery charging technology is proven a better way to protect the battery from charging damage and prolong the battery lifespan. https://qnovo.com/technology/

bezel-less still have it limitation, because the front camera sensor and proximity sensor and speakers will be there and it is the reason why the fingerprint scanner located at a bad space, because fingerprint scanner don't have a well place for located it component! Like this invetion is a backwards.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017Time of invention and time of trend are not the same thing.Leading trend is easy thing, just have bloggers keyboard warrior trolls.
Leading invention is not that easy, it must have talents and investion.
AZIB, 14 Sep 2017It's about quality vs quantity...ur choice...Stop with the excuses.
So much wrong. First of all having both is not that hard. Especially in flagships as high ends. Especial when budget as middle ground can get it.
Second of all the quality on them is not that amazing. So it's not volume or superb quality.
And in fact since its not great quality and there is two of them... it is in fact quantity over quality completely the opposite of your claim
