What's with this rating? There is nothing wrong with this device at that price range.
I thought we judge with
Display, performance, battery life, camera, audio, sofware, build quality... I mean actual things we use on a phone according to price.
Bezels are not funtionality nor feature.
This el-cheapo smartphone has many things I like. I like how THICC those bezels are, aw yeah. And that main camera placement at the corner. Side mounted FPS much preferred location beside on the front, though I don't know why Sony won't put the power button together with it anymore. Expandable memory (by microSD card slot). USB Type C. 3.5mm jack.
I wish for those *qualities* mentioned above. I wish someone would make one with all of those, with some high end flagship-grade SoC (that presumably comes with all the goodies it capable of like fastest modem and wifi, top of the line GPU, etc), metal unibody, waterproofing, infrared remote blaster, at least 128gb+6gb, and at least 5000mah battery + at least 18W + Battery Care.
There's not a single maker that offers all of this in a single package. Oh also a *true-tri-slot* dual sim/dual 4g + memory card slot would be greatly appreciated. Again, no one ever did provide an entire slot (that each with its own flap, cap, rubber ring), for each of these 3 cards.
Additionally, the rest of the goodies like new gollira grass that *scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at level 7* and good ol' reliable tough plastic backplate are appreciated as well~
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2019I agree, i never buy any mid-range phones, i prefer old flagships. The smell of newly opened phone box.
Or you can buy a two year old flagship which would be way more bang for your bucks, i still don't understand this budget midrange nonsense.
Finally, the Xperia L3 is out! I'm waiting for months... I'm wondering why the review out is late? Any confirmation? By the way, meaning all Sony early-2019 phones has been reviewed, which's good to know. Now I'm going to do is to wait for the Sony late-2019 phones to be unveiled (Xperia 2, Xperia 20).
It costs $150 in Taiwan according to eprice .
Gorilla 5, NFC, BT5.0, USB C 2.0 is missing for many devices low end devices.
Better having all this than better cpu (SD363, 660 ) but withou this.
I'd never buy in 2019 a phone with micro usb or gorilla 3
Sorry but Sony is done for! I except a Sony to have great camera and audio quality, that's what I expect from the brand.
But they're no where close to where I want them.
It seems even a old Sony Ericsson W800 will do a better job here in some matters. :(
EDIT: GSMarena staff, kindly review more phones like Redmi Note 7 "PRO" and all... Thanks.
