I had 5 Sony phones over the years, satisfied with all of them. Z1, Z3, Z3+, XZ1, XZ2c. Strong feature was waterproof or at least water resistant. They were an industry lead in that regard. However I just switched reluctantly to Sammy because these Sony folks don't seem to care about wireless charging -- but I do.

It looks exactly like others brand to me. At least my huawei did, will see for the Sony in two years. But I will never buy a phone just for the software update. I still use phone that didn't receive update since january of last year (old Lumia 8.1) and it is not less capable than when I bought it. No need for software update if there is no bug left. Security patch will be on the store.
And for me Xperia 1 doesn't compete for what it does, but for what it is, a gorgeous 21/9 screen with a really nice looking case without notch and without curved screen, nor ID fingerprint sensor.

What Nokia does is much better than Sony, because even though Nokia phones are not the best, at least they guarantee their phone software updates.

If you have small hands width is the most important thing; height less so.
I agree it could do with being shorter but if and when my xz2c dies, this is a possible replacement. I have doubts about the Pixels, and I need good water resistance.

Sony completely has the great tuning/audio decoding of the audio quality that's great for music listening even for a long time. This is my Xperia Z2 experience.
