coolsauce, 27 Feb 2018Well currently XZ1/XZ2 Compacts are in the league of it's own. I am not aware of any manufactu... moreYes, they're on a league of their own for being overpriced given their specs, along with Apple.
As far as I know many other manufacturers like Samsung, LG and Huawei for example can produce thinner phones with better heat management than Sony. A thicker phone because they need better heat management is just a lazy and pathetic excuse for poor design and space management.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2018You do know that Xperia has microsd card slot right? 4k video on a micro SD slot, really? Something with 10 MB write speed is gonna playback a video file of 40-50 GB (35-45 minutes at most). Sounds good.. doesn't work

Well, as I said, I love reading your comments now. :-)
They are as fun, as they are ridiculous.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2018That's why there's a 10 min limit on 4k recording on the Samsungs? It's pretty much endless 4k... moreThere's something like storage which would run out in 40 minutes anyways ( provided you don't have apps) with apps it's Less than half. Whats the Point of that?
Tann Hauser, 01 Mar 2018Well actually, in a world of 5.7 inch screen standardized flagships, 5 inch is new Compact now.A screen bigger than iphone 8 is compact. Damn. I hate iOS but guess I'll have to wait for iPhone se
JIJOK, 28 Feb 2018here is your vertu friend https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/13/15963656/vertu-luxury-phone-manu... more Thanks for the link. This site is clearly helpful, if not quirky and, on decidedly infrequent occasions wonky. Having said that, I highly regard GSM Arena, even if they don't proofread their commentaries and occasionally make spelling errors and incorporate typos within their website. Lastly, they sometimes provide wrongful info. Despite as much, I browse said site almost daily. Cheers all.
Tann Hauser, 02 Mar 2018Oh common now.
First in mobile HDR video recording, first in mobile SDR to HDR content upscal... moreNope, none of that is a Sony Innovation. Its changes and improvements to existing technology from other Brands.
Sony was NOT:
Not first in mobile HD video recording
Not first in content upscaling
Not first in mobile phone vibration
Not first in 3D scanning
Not first in super slow motion (fps)
DonÂ’t be blind here.
AnonD-741564, 02 Mar 2018What happened to Sony ? No innovation power ! No idea ! Better close your company like VAIO ! ... moreOh common now.
First in mobile HDR video recording, first in mobile SDR to HDR content upscaling, firs in mobile Dynamic Vibration System, first in mobile front cam 3D scanning, first in mobile 1080p super slo mo.
Thats 5 firsts in mobile innovations.
I really cant see any other OEM bringing more to their new flagships, call em some gimmicks or others innovations...
So,again, Sony is nbr 1 in innovation.
Dont be blind here.
What happened to Sony ? No innovation power ! No idea ! Better close your company like VAIO ! If you need idea just hire me. Seriously your phone canÂ’t compete with others anymore . ItÂ’s just a expensive piece of crap.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2018disappointed, compact is too big, battery is small Well actually, in a world of 5.7 inch screen standardized flagships, 5 inch is new Compact now.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2018all of them are useless gimmicks.
but samsung's implementation is more mature than sony's.
... moreI see Samsung only implementing stereo speakers and super slo mo on their new devices, already present on Xperias.
All it added new is double apperture lense, not innovated, but also present before, and 4k 60 fps video.
And I see Sony changing into stupid design not implemented first by Samsung at all, and bringing dirst time in mobile 4k hdr video recording, 1080p super slo mo, all visual content hdr upscaling, DVS entertainment system and front 3D scanning.
Along with advancing its camera by new algorithms through a dedicated qualcomm chip now, and bringing wireless charging with a proper cooling charger that prevents overheat, a problem present on other wireless charging capable phones.
Annnd ditching the headphone jack, which is the only thing that Samsung has over it, all rest is meh...
Overall, even if I dont like new Xperia design solutions, it is overal a more capable and innovative phone.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2018What are you talking about ?
Sony has a gimmick 960fps video only with manual button use,... moreAnd yet XZ2 produces much better still images and video than all that fancy hardware in S9+
Just Google it you will find the comparisons
As a customer who still uses a z1 compact I am disappointed.
Bulky and ugly looking even from the front.
If I wanted to go this big, I might ad well go 5mm more in height and 7 in width and go for the S8 Sirocco.
(Which is also kind of squarish)
5,5 inches at 16:9 vs 5 at 18:9.
It is also Android one which means 2 years of updates and 3 of security patches. (The main argument against the Xz1 Compact which is already 9 months old)
The price will also be similar..
