Avan Dr, 29 Feb 2016Neutral is thst i am not fan of any brand, and not hater also. I am only honest. If there is s... moredespite all your comments on the phone, the "facts" you say and everything in between. I must say I still love the phone and all its features, its upsides still outweigh its downsides in my opinion and every phone manufacturer has some form of shortcomings so its up to the customer whether to accept those or not. I don't also believe that you want to "save" anyone from the perils of buying the phone, you're not even their father or something.
B4baby, 29 Feb 2016Best smartphone ever.. Sony thanks.. Keep rock fhd display is best or the camera without OIS? small battery is the best or BIG bezels? which one? or maybe all????????? please think and consider before wrighting. this phone is one of the worst sonys phone and just grab the new SoC and nothing more
Sony, I shall always be a fan but afraid there appears to be a disconnect in our aspirations! I want top end, stars, lights and cameras, the full works which includes a beautiful 2K screen and specs to duke it out with the best out there. You were on the right path with the Z5, especially the Z5 Premium and then you go shatter my dreams and expectations. Ordinarily, I would recover and perhaps continue our mutually satisfactory relationship but you see, there is one problem! I have also fallen for the Huawei Nexus 6P and there is no going backwards, sideways, only upwards! My base line is now the Nexus 6P and the X Performance simply is not good enough to tempt me back into the Sony fold...Well, I guess all good things come to an end....we move on! I move on...! Good bye, it has been quite a ride!!

There are only a certain number of designs surely for modern handsets. Without making phones difficult to hold or impractical, there are a finite number of designs possible.

- LG G5 doesn't have UFS 2.0. Call them lazy?
- you call XP design 2009. Do you even know how phones looked in 2009? Here http://www.cnet.com/pictures/top-10-most-popular-cell-phones-of-2009-photos/
- FHD is optimum for 5 Inch displays. Anything above is waste. So how does it matter if it has FHD?
You always complain xperia's display poor because it has FHD display.
Anyways no matter talking to you..you never get it.
I remember telling this to you in the Z5 page and even Z3+ page: stop trolling

There have been rumours here in the UK for several years that the FM signal is being turned off imminently, therefore if makes sense that FM radios are no longer a necessity on phones. Besides, with the likes of Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, et al, why do we need a radio these days anyways?!?

- Yes, They are lazy. Even fans often say cybershot phone, with xenon, with walkman etc= win. Is that difficult? it isnt, They are only lazy.
- Doesnt stand a chance? i never say something like this.
- Old design. Its beautiful, but yes, old. Still using FLAP and metal back+plastic (Fact). Just like gal tab 7.7. I think If there is unexperienced company try to make metal phone it will results XP like design.
- FHD is cheaper than QHD (especially Superamoled).(Fact)
- Emmc cheaper than ufs 2.0 (fact)
See? .... its all fact. I never troll..

Lex79, 27 Feb 2016Hey ICE,
First, I'd advise you not get into a discussion with Tann Hauser, there's nothing ... moreNo worries mate. I'm having a laugh regardless. It's fun to see what they can come up with (like thinking I'm 3 different people using different nicknames - like I can be in 3 different countries at the same time, hint : encoded location ID is not the same between the co-accused names, very intelligent that was).
Anyway, we can draw a strong conclusion between the SD820 and it's Exynos counterpart in the S6 (Exynos 7420). The Exynos 8890 (S7) will be even better. As I mentioned before, there are benchmarks out already. I haven't got much hope for power and heat efficiency in the XP, although the metal body might help.
The camera is arguably the same as in the Z5 which gets this review statement from gsma : "Sony's new 23MP sensor shows great promise. But regardless of how powerful the hardware is, the camera image quality is still susceptible to recurring issues such as corner softness, high levels of noise and watercolor like effect on fine repetitive detail such as walls, foliage or grass." "The dynamic range is disappointing though and you may have to switch to HDR more often than usual."
What I do like about the camera though is the wide FOV.
Unlike fanboys I don't just thumb suck stuff ;)
It's not like I hate Sony.

There are some concerns surrounding power efficiency and GPU producing too much heat. Maybe the metal body of the XP is there to act as a heat sink (apart from aesthetics)?

Yhien041715, 29 Feb 2016Dude I beg to disagree with you. Especially the motherboard logic board part, it's not Samsu... moreMSM8974 is Snapdragon 800's part number, not the motherboard.
The motherboard model no. For my Moto G is XT1039, the model number. And my Z1C's motherboard model no. Is D5503.
So for Z2 it'll be D6502/ or some thing.
How on earth will Samsung make motherboards for others... Lol.
