Epic comeback for sony this year. Great design, fps, a good mid ranger device with top of the line camera (mid ranger range). Cant wait for their flagship. Used to be Xperian, now i'm a Huawei user, maybe this year sony flagship makes me back to sony.
Cirov12, 29 Jan 2018in the speed tests you can appreciate the quality of the screens, and on the comments if there... moreUnless sony makes a flagship equally worthy as samsung or huawei, sony will continue to lose with its mobile division until they dump it and its faithful "spartans".
For me, it's not the marketing that helps other brands to lead, but the quality and useful features.
So far sony has only gimmicky features good for marketing (and "spartans" ?) but not needed in day to day use for most people:
4k on a 5.5" screen, 960FPS, 3D scanning, Play remote, Ar effect, DualShock Connect.
[deleted post]"i will never waste my money to buy featureless phone like xperia" what feature have you phone that does not have my XPeria ?lol.
I'll tell you the ones you do not have.
Upscaled 1080p to 4k.
Burst Mode camera.
[deleted post]For crying out loud nearly everything is made in China these days. It's a Japanese company, even iPhone is made in China, grow up

Oathbreaker, 29 Jan 2018For me, it was this or the Xperia X for $230+ from B&H. The X has double tap to wake and d... moreLmao. You call others sheep while talking nonesense crap.
Overrated. It only had beastly battery life, fantastic camera and display, great features, and the softwsre is running fine. And you can get it at a discount price now too.
Oh glass back. You mean like most sonys were too??
And yes. Sony with their constant sudden death.
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2018Exactly. Yet they never ever admit being guilty of doing just that. :-D Yup. Its sad cause Sony is one of my favorites. But their pages are one of the most ridiculous
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2018You are Linking speed test while talking about the screen of device. Like really? BTW this is ... moreI dont see a problem in those links.
It is common in speed tests that two or more phones stand one by another, so you can actually see which screen looks better by visual experience at least, not just fan babble.
Oathbreaker, 29 Jan 2018For me, it was this or the Xperia X for $230+ from B&H. The X has double tap to wake and d... moreYup. I just dont understand how people like those phones, I mean, I have friends using them so I can see what its all about....those get really really slow within quite a short amount of time, to the point of asking yourself "what the...?¿"
As if those are only made to perform good on release, and afterwards go into the slowing down spiral of some kind.
Anyways, back to Xperias, Id wait for a rev or two more, as this here XA2 unit has some serious microphone bug in recording video, just hoping its only a QC problem and not an engineering flaw of entire line.
YalokIy, 28 Jan 2018Lol, iphone X has the best screen on the market and s8 is second to it.
But hey, everyone, ... moreYou know, you should maybe first give a link to some proffessional test site, claiming by its performed tests, that those 2k oled screens are actually better than that 4k lcd screens, or even FHD lcd screens...
Sonys mobile lcd screens are best on market, with excellent blacks, contrast, viewing angles, nit power, rgb hdr, and most importantly durability sans problems that plague oled screens.
Top tier 4k lcd TVs are still outselling top tier 4k oled TVs by a large amount, and that is the only available relative info about which tech people actually prefer to look at, but there is no available info on which tech is actually better.
Unfortunately, rumors have it that Sony is going to give out an oled option phone too, but given the reports of problems with it, on most oled flagship phones, I only hope Sony will keep its quality lcd phone options too.
Cause, by todays state of affairs, I aint still buying an oled phone until the tech proves worth of money it asks in return.
speedemon1980, 28 Jan 2018Sony is still in Business because we Sony users will continue to buy Sony phones, and will mak... moreI have Sony LED Tv's, Sony PS4, Sony Blueray Player, Sony Sorround Speakers, Sony FM/AM Radio, etc. Sony in my house.... Only lacking is Fridge/Dishwasher/WashingMachine/etc. Appliance that Sony don't make.
Cirov12, 29 Jan 2018in the speed tests you can appreciate the quality of the screens, and on the comments if there... moreactually you buy xpensive xperia but you got nothing in return. just a plain android phone without any usable features, with old ui, and same design.
sony experia is the king of "nothingness".
buying xperia = donating money to sony
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2018You are Linking speed test while talking about the screen of device. Like really? BTW this is ... morein the speed tests you can appreciate the quality of the screens, and on the comments if there are a lot of users of Xperia is because we are few and good, like the 300 Spartans, we are hard users, 99% of users of samsung and apple are casuals, grandparents, grandmothers, children rat etc It's people like you, do not understand, buy by marketing
For me, it was this or the Xperia X for $230+ from B&H. The X has double tap to wake and dual front speakers. The Xperias released in 2017 lost that 2x to wake feature, FM radio, and even PS4 remote play.
I'm choosing this XA2 because of a couple reasons -
It looks much better. Check the link below. Silver is nice.
Fingerprint scanner without needing to flash to a foreign ROM. Finally!
The Snapdragon 630 is successor to the ultra efficient 625.
The battery at 3300 mAh looks good enough and lasts longer than the X.
I really don't understand the negative comments. I used to own the S7 edge and it was overrated af. I despise glass backs, curved displays, and Samsung's trash software.
Stick to Sony. All the sheep (which are in the billions) can continue to be duped by marketing and popularity contests and can have their iPhonies and Ga-lag-seas.
