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...

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.
AnonD-412467, 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.

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.
AnonD-412467, 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

Tann Hauser, 14 Sep 2017There will always be people that dont follow trends just for the sake of it. Those are people... moreJust because sony doesn't follow all the trends doesnt mean they dont follow any. Or that they are perfect.
I have no idea if Sony's designers love the bezel for their personal taste or hate the bezel-less language, or the company targets the customers who have the same mind as their designers, or whatever, but to me the market for Sony becomes more and more narrower they don't change the design.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017Why Sony always have a weak speaker? because they are not smart enough to make it louder. their software skill is terrrrrrible. just like their distorted camera.

I actually never ever think about maybe debating with hipster kids here. But yes, its probably more often than rarely.

Those are people that despise the human sheeple mentality, actually think before buying, and see further than just marketing prints and billboards.
And those are always in minority, that is most definitive.
So, there will not be that much, but always will be customers for Sony phones.
