You will find it fun and easy to use, its like everything is already there for you.
I am currently using sammy J7+ and meizu m5 note. Both are beautiful full metal unibody phone. What can i say is j7+ is quality phone, ofcourse it isnt the best or super powerful. It excels in all features it has, its good for vlogging n live. I love the trendy dual camera with its live focus features. Also AOD and Always on fingerprint sensor, the best thing is bixby.
M5N is more beautiful phone, feature rich beautiful and fun ui, i love their signature home button and clean front. Best UI, its like everything is there and works perfectly. I am a bit worry about its quality, but its 8 months of using and no problem, so far i am highly satisfied.
What I would like to see in a phone:
Sony bezel less design (if the render comes out to be true), with better speaker quality
Pure android OS
In display finger print reader
FHD quality display with HDR, no QHD,4K bullshit
day and half battery life
Guess i am asking too much

But as cap say most of people dont buy flagship, including you. You are not ready for them but sticking with old SP is poor choice, buying chinese phone is best choice for you.
Hope this help. There are three kind of chinese phone, the popular chinese and cheap chinese and rarely heard chinese. Huawei, oppo, vivo are popular one, they are on top 5 smartphone vendor, their phone are pricey. Xiaomi, meizu, zte is cheap chinese, they have skills, they can make quality phone if they want but they opted to make cheap phone.

But I definitely did not meant GUI alone. As UI only means the skin of the phone, but I wanted to include the bloatware in it hence ROM, but somehow I wrote OS....lol
I planned to use Mi3 for 3 years but that got stolen so I had to fall back on my other phone Xperia SP, I didnt't bought new one as I am currently saving for a PC and maybe PS4 Pro as well.
Also care to tell me on what basis you're recommending me a Chinese phone and by the way which model ?
AnonD-206292, 03 Dec 2017Wow this conversation is turning into a lengthy essays now..lol, I'll try to keep this concise... moreDude, u still using SP? Gosh.. Its the worst quality TFT.. Its too pale. All the phone you have tried are too standard in ui. Forget about your dream flagship and your conversation with cap..
I recommend you chinese phone, choose chinese with advanced UI, those who call their ui OS, like color OS, oxigen os, flyme OS etc. You will find everything is easier n fun.
AnonD-441601, 03 Dec 2017Man nicely said.
But in present era like 80% of global population maybe more cant afford 600... moreWow this conversation is turning into a lengthy essays now..lol, I'll try to keep this concise so we can bring this conversation to an end soon..
At first glance it may look like majority of population can't afford high end phone, but if you'll look at Samsung and Apple sales figure and unit sold you'll notice its actually the opposite. Samsung and Apple keeps on increasing the price of their phone every year and yet every year more or at least similar amount of units are sold.
All the features like water-proofing, 4k screen, DAC, 120Hz screen may look like unnecessary add on to you, but I see them as a sneak-peak into the future. For example: 15 years ago we use to use phones with 1.5 inch screen 128 X 128 pixel resolution phone and now 5" 1080p is a common thing. So if we apply that logic here 4k screen is actually the future and mobile manufacturer will have to begin using these tech at some point so why not now?, VR will benefit from 4K a lot.
Now, what I understand from some of your previous comments is that you believe that Sony phones or the likes of it doesn't last long enough to justify its price (I may be wrong though). But all the phones I've been using since 2002 never once failed on me. Bought Samsung Wave in 2010 for almost $400 and it still works though at the beginning of 6th year it developed the random reboot issue. Used Xiaomi Mi3 for 1.5 years before it got stolen, and currently I am using Sony Xperia SP 3.5 year old bought in 2014 hangs like there's no tomorrow but its due to it only having dual core processor though it still works and get the job done.
So all I can say is since expensive Sony phone failed on you multiple times, you now don't find any confidence in expensive phones from big brands. I on the other hand never experienced anything of that sort, so I can continue to have faith on big brands phones to last me a good 4-5 years.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2017Sony's trying to shove that same old shit in people's faces. It's high time they sold their mo... moreOooh, they won't ever bother touching that decision, unless the next paradigm shift of Sony said so. But, they had making more profits than before (except Q2 '17). Besides, next year will be the 10th anniversary of Xperia. Why they do that on their celebration of their Xperia lineup that have been living for almost 10 years? Don't blame me if another Sony fans come here to attack you. I already warned you......
AnonD-441601, 01 Dec 2017Strange phone with Strange name and as expected from sony it will have horrible price for its ... moreNo offence dude. But, you do realized H8541 means the numbers and code of Sony Xperia phones for 2018, not the real name of the phone? (not even their codenames like previously for 2017's Gxxxx : Yoshino, BlancBright, Pikachu, etc.). We have to wait for few months until we heard the name from leaks and sources.
Do i need to remind you all the codes of Sony phones since the announcement of Xperia Z? (previous Sony Xperia phones from 2012 still derived from their Sony Ericsson code number naming, ex : LT22i, LT21i, etc.)
Sony Xperia codes and year release :
C = 2013
D = 2014
E = 2015
F = 2016
G = 2017
H = 2018
(I = 2019)
Deisgn needs to change imo, Sony has been using the same design for generations now!! Please release something that's not so stale.
Livius, 03 Dec 2017The phone looks very good , I really like it a lot and it still has dual speaker . If this pho... moreTheir cameras are great but their software optimisation/algorithm is rubbish until a later software update (usually). Nearly all OEMs use Sony sensors!
thin-bezels Sony? at last! same as with TV-sets Sony loved bezels for too long. But good time is coming, I suppose.
The phone looks very good , I really like it a lot and it still has dual speaker . If this phone really comes out , it will be very good but the only problem with Sony is that their cameras are very bad compared to other phones .
for me the spec is suparb keep it coming sony. But don't forget the EIS for selfei cam.
AnonD-206292, 02 Dec 2017I'll ignore certain topic like first phone or about Motorola as I don't any meaning in continu... moreMan nicely said.
But in present era like 80% of global population maybe more cant afford 600 eur phones everything cost more and more every year where sallary improves just by a very little i can say from here in Slovakia my country in heart of Europe.
Here people at average have 500 eur per month from which like 70% goes on living and other bills rest is for food clothes etc.
To the all rest you said it was interesting to read and i thank you for your research and time you did to check everything but as always ( water-proofing, Superior DAC, Stereo Speakers, Cooper heat pipe, 4K video recording with EIS or OIS, Optical Zoom, 4k screen, 120hz panel and what not )
I honestly can say Waterproofing is just a stupid add on which cost lot of money where if people are niot very clumsy will never need this feature anyway a water resistant cover from alliexpress for 2-5 eur do the same tricks for much less money. Superior DAC is another money hungry feature which 90% of global population never oproperly use. Most of the phones in present era have stereo speakers in case of Lenovo or Motorola phones Dolby Atmos is included. Cooper heat pipe is great and not many phones have it. My Lenovo Vibeshot also dont have this and i am heavy gamer and after more than 2 years the phone is excelent as it was when i bought it first time. Only i had to replace battery which is typical for me due to heavy gaming. 4k video recording sounds great but for a half price of a phone you can have camera which do much better. Anyway on a 5 inch screen a 4k resolution is useful as having laser sight on a slinger. Despite 4k recording will drain your flagship 3000 mAh battery in 30 mins from 100% to 0%. And trust me but naked eye will not see any difference unless you have same eye sight quality as eagles or so. Most of the phones in present era have EIS or OIS and almost any even a chinese ones have an optical image stabilization. And Razer phone is yet the only one with 120 HZ panel.
As typical from other companies no sae money on research or why to research something which other companies use over a long time period. Its called shared technology.
Like apple took wireless charging from Samsing Ip rating as well superamoled screens instead of retina display (typical for apple research of retina display cost too much and yet Iphone X cost 1300 eur despite of many shared tech where Apple saved a lot of money on research) 4k recording from Sony etc. As we know Z5 premium from Sony vere first mobile with 4k display and recording and as we know from its review at 4k resolution its battery drained in 20 mins when phone was used and in 40 mins when stands still. From then lot of things were improved but not enough to consume much less battery.
But what i am really trying to say most of these so called flagship features have no use because you either cant see the difference or the price is so high its useless to have it.
Like for example gorrila glass 5 on phone. When your phone drops on concrete you can have a gorrilaglass 10 or 100 it will breaks.
Phone with no gorrila glass at all but with a screen protector hardeness 10H or Panzer glass for 2-5 eur will be much cheaper and much durable display than phone with just gorrilaglass 5.
All or most features are just an beautiful illusion which sounds nice to have but can be covered for much less price.
Hope i said eough. Now try to judge me for my honest comments.
I like how they utilized the bezel-less display without giving up their signature Sony hardware design principles. Still has that "Sony vibe" which I love.
I also like how they didn't remove the 3.5mm jack, proves just how silly it is when people say OEMs removed the jack because of the large bezel-less screen.
If only they switched to an AMOLED panel though...
