I'm actually glad I got my XZ1 Compact, I'm not a fan of the new design. Seems to conform more with the general design trends and I thought the previous designs stood out and made them more unique.

1. htc change their design every 1 or 2 years
2. samsung change their design every 2 years
3. ch!n@ brands also do the same
4. sony used the same design for more than 5 years, but when they finally change it, they do it in terrible way. copy htc's design, increasing the thickness but removing the headphone jack and not increasing the battery capacity.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018Aren't those 2 the flagship TV's? If their flagship TV's have OLED? Why not phone?Funny how you define flagship.
No, those are not only flagship models, Sony makes flagship lcd and oled models.
And I would always go lcd flagship over any oled flagship TV.
Thousands of bucks for a flagship TV, based on oled, so I could sweat and worry every day about incoming oled color degradation and inburns. No thanks.
Tann Hauser, 07 Mar 2018The design equals to some 8.5-9 mm thick flatback device.Even by your maths, that is close to 20 percentage increase in thickness that for 6 percentage increase in battery?

Furthermore, the XZ2 even come with the balanced curve back designs while the HTC doesn't. However, the S9+ has the weird fingerprint scanner placement unlike XZ2 has the much ergonomic fingerprint scanner placement. Although XZ2 doesn't the best looking of Sony design it is still better than S9+ S9 because S9+ S9's design must get bored with the curved corner screen (it is the superb gimmick like the notch) and the fingerprint scanner is close to the camera lens and not to mention the on-screen navigation bar is far away from the back fingerprint scanner meaning you have to always adjust your hand position or stretch your finger to press those buttons, while the XZ2 design is unique!
Sony improves the phone with much excellent grip, let the user Feel the hand.

HDR works perfectly fine on LCD, look at Sony's tv ;).
was hope it will look like xa2. I am happy to own xz premium. this happen when pressure is high. sony should stay with brick design. on youtube there are concepts of xperia phones. sony design department should take ideas from them.

More advanced audio for a device with no 3.5 mm jack..
HDR upscaling for device with non infinite blacks.. not saying it's a bad display, but HDR is best suited for LEDs, just ask TV line up of Sony..
An age old wireless charging which has been useless just couple of months back..
A design that looks like mishmash of phones of years ago..

You only rant about superiority this and that, without substantiation.
And called me a lier? Lied about what?
Yes, IMO for those that dont mind the lack of jack, XZ2 is a better overall phone, bringing much more new and advanced to the table.
Bionz ISP promises much more advanced image processing.
Remains to be seen if it significantly improves automode lowlight capabilities, but no doubt it makes strides in photo quality over XZ1.
10bit HDR 4k recording, dont know how long it ll take competition to catch up to that dslr level feature...
SDR to HDR upscaling also a new standard, as it is based on Sonys own advanced X reality chip...
DVS promises more immersive gaming experience, a Dualshock PS feature, that gamers will value most certainly.
Front 3D scanner is much more advanced feat than simple animoji creator introduced by other.
Heck they even brought wireless, but with a proper colling deck, to solve exactly the thing I disliked about qi charging, overheating and battery damage.
And design is great IMO, not my cup of tea as I detest lack od jack, and dont like 18:9 aspect or back fp scanner, but definitely best looking fashionably designed phone out there.
So again, where do I lie here?
