Unbiased Sony Fanboy, 11 Jan 2018Just because you don't like the design, doesn't mean it'a a crappy phone overall.

Have you compared the old xperia Z series to the latest X series? Have you seen any improvements to the design? NO. The only that has change is the internal components like the processor, ram, and storage. What about the other part that's still need some changes?
Sony has been the same as before. And I regret buying all 3 of their products because of the boring design. Meanwhile, other competitors have made changes in both internal and external hardware. Those who obtain it are now enjoying it like the ff:
1. Edge display. And even more. A bezel less display!
2. Wireless charging and Quick charging that charge less than 2 hours.
3. Face unlock.
4. Daydream VR experience.
So against those features. What does sony bring? 4k display, or even 960fps? LOL! Those are useless features of a smartphone! Especially for the fact that people don't considerably use them!
HardDrive, 12 Jan 2018Sony design are unique, its better to spend more in internal changes not externalSpend more internal changes? LOL! You don't know smartphone. So in terms of smartphone modernization. If the internal is garbage. So as the external. What's the use of getting this product for if it have a similar specification from last year?
Unbiased Sony Fan, 11 Jan 2018Says the person with a self-rebooting and non-charging device with mediocre build quality LMAO... moreI never encountered a single issue you mentioned. And built quality and design are miles in front of this.
Simple as that.
Denis Thomas, 10 Jan 2018The only thing great about your S8 is it's lack of stereo speakers, 4k display, updates suppor... moreNot a single case of S8 exploding.
I don't use speakers anyways. I doubt anyone who has a headphones does. And you get 100$ AKG headphones right in the box with S8.
I get updates, just not Oreo, and I don't really care. In term of features Samsung is still in front of it's competitions anyways.
HardDrive, 12 Jan 2018can u give us an example of phone that has good design?Sony and LG. These two OEMs are really good at designing phones.
The S8's design was inspired from the G6.
I still have the LG G4 and man, such a beautiful piece of tech that is sadly pulled back by the rubbish SD808.
It went into boot loop and I'm planning to get it fixed as soon as possible, but only as a backup phone.
I will get the XA2 as met daily driver.

This isn't the place for you :)
HardDrive, 12 Jan 2018Sony design are unique, its better to spend more in internal changes not externalI can't complain of their external designs too because it's sturdy and original. While others are just copying each other.

Love the Community, 11 Jan 2018It's okay because it's short and sweet. Let's wait for MWC and Sony will blow them all away wi... morewhy?
we already see xiaomi mi mix, essential, iphone 7x, and S8.
all of them are bezelless.
sony is extremely too late.
when they finally announce mirai, people will say "meh"
S8 User, 10 Jan 2018The only thing "ultra" about their phones is their ultra lack of design, and features.Says the person with a self-rebooting and non-charging device with mediocre build quality LMAO.
I tell you what, the fingerprint scanner on these devices are at least placed on a good location on the back.
I like it when I touch my camera lens when unlocking the phone. Not.
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2018A shame that the OIS is put in the not-so-useful front camera. It would have been more appreci... moreThe XA Ultra lineup has been known for this selfie concentric device. OIS will be first featured on the flagships for maybe both rear and front, then after it gets developed, the older one will be given to the XA series.
The XA series is a collection of the old but great technologies from the old flagship XZ devices.
insomia, 11 Jan 2018why waste those extra space for not including speakers?...the end of stereo speakers.Stereo speakers have never been present on mid rangers. Even most flagships don't have it.
To have stereo speakers from a mid ranger is an absolutely great deal.

In that case, I could say that I don't like Samsung phones' designs, but that doesn't mean that they are crappy phones.
Joecole, 11 Jan 2018I hate Samsung designs, does that give me the right to say that their mobiles are rubbish and ... moreIt has always been the same story. When a Sony phone is bad or has failed on something, they rant as if it's the end of the world.
When a Sony phone is great and has the potential to get lots of recognition, people always point out at bezels.
I wonder what will they say when the small bezel Mirai design comes out. I wonder what their next hate or excuse will be lol.
