I placed the pre-order today and will be receiving it next week. Hope this will rebuild back my trust on this smartphone brand and encourage me to purchase its flagship model.
Nice, light, watreproof phone with capable battery.
Not everyone likes 200grams brick in the pocket.

but..... Xperia X Compact (2016) beat this phone in everything (except screen.)....
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2020I bet you can relate to that BrendonNot really. I used to be a fanboi many years ago. Would defend my brand fiercely against anyone who dares challenge it. Then I realised how stupid that was. I use multiple brands for everything. My phone is Xiaomi but before this I had a Samsung and next time I may get a One Plus Z. So I don't stick to one brand but see whats the best value at my given price point. I like Sony products in General as my mirrorless camera system is Sony but their phones I see little value to them.
rullydotcom, 16 Jun 2020it is simply not for youConsidering Sony's miniscule sales their phones don't seem to be appealing to anyone except for a few select fanbois. The sad thing is that fanbois may be vocal about their love for a particular company it doesn't translate into sales which is what Sony desperately needs in order to continue making phones.
Sony hardware R&D guys, gone out of mind, making their fans Fadeway, by giving crap specs at nearly high range prices, saying as mid-range,
have to buy only for being Fan & its Appearance.

I so wanted to buy their old Xperia 10 but it had a SD 630 processor and it was the slowest phone in its price range. The 665 processor is at home on $200 devices and looks woefully out of place on a $350 device. If only they had SD720 or SD730 processor the phone would have been a much more compelling option. I am on lookout to replace my Poco F1 and there is no chance I am going to pay more for a much slower phone. Ill probably spend a bit more and get a Galaxy Note 10 lite or see if I can get a deal on a Poco f2 but thats too highly priced at the moment.

Quality control off the line has big impact on the final price. Device becomes cheaper when every part produced ends up being used instead of cherry picking for the quality. II'm not aware of Samsungs product pipe line but since M line is the bottom feeder it can as easily be the product made out of unused left over parts on A assembly line that couldn't pass quality control.

If you are considering the A51 then it has a 6.5 inch screen in the same space as the Sony which only has a 6 inch screen. Yes its got a punch hole camera but that's the least irritating option to a large notch.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2020such an uneducated retort. how can a mid ranger be expected to turn things around. Ok then educate me. What do you think will help Sony make a turnaround ? Flagships that few people buy? Or maybe an entry level phone that lots of people could buy but has limited margins for a company ? Or maybe a midranger which allows good margins and can afford substantial sales. Samsung has done a phenomenal job with its mid range phones which has allowed it to compete in a market like India which demands cheap phone and where Chinese phones rule the roost. But yet Samsung has a substantial market share as it has a good amount of midrange phones. That's what Sony needs. I don't see any hope for Sony sustaining itself in the long run if it continues to launch phones like this.

All of the three offer pretty much the same thing as overall package. One might not have X feature while the other might not have Y feature but it's the same thing pretty much.

Cheap for sony quality, i still have working z ultra and c3. Was expensive but working fine until now, on contrast with $400 oppo hard survive over a year, never droped, lcd just failed
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2020What's wrong with it? Read the review. Its a bit too expensive for the features on offer. Do you want to bet that this will be another flop for Sony or do you feel its such a compelling option that it will revive the Sony brand and sell in decent numbers?
sterijuanna, 13 Jun 2020such a shame. I had high hopes for this device What's wrong with it?
