Look at newest Sony phone x performance.
- The design is conventional, its 2012 design. Plastick Frame+metal back. Because full metal unybody is more complicated. Metal blocks radio wave. It needs antenna line.
So they choose cheaper solution ala Gal tab 7.7. Lazy?
- UI is nearly stock. Notification center, nav bar are untweaked. LAZY right?
- Standard feature. No additional hardware like IR blaster, Smart cover(its only Z3 and above, while others also bring that stuff to mid end and low end phone). LAZY
- Camera. They get it from camera division. And just install it. While others modify it, with better optic, make it F/1.7 or F/1.8 and houses it with OIS. LAZY

I have the HTC One M7, honestly best phone I've ever had, love the dual front speakers, but from what I've been hearing the M10 won't have them. But this Sony X Performance has the stereo speakers with the Hi-Res audio and an awesome camera. Think this is my new phone right here.
Sony is superb at design. Their phones has always looked royal to me. But this... Meeh, I don´t know. What I do know is that there´s a lot of quality people working over at the Sony house. So just hope they are at the drawing stage of a new pearl. I really liked the Z line, from the first to the last (Z5).
Keep it up Sony !
I want it to have 4GB RAM, 3000mAh battery and most importantly I wait in pink color :/

I really don't like the front screen design that Sony always made. Samsungs is quite good
I'm confident the S7 with a 12MP camera will pull more detail than this 23MP iteration and the S7 will perform better in low light conditions, will have a faster chipset (Exynos 8890 Octa), longer lasting battery and be more durable. Not much of a flagship from Sony (@ flagship costs too) this year.
I personally like the Xperia X Performance, even though it isn't the flagship device. But I was concerned Sony wouldn't launch anymore Z to the market... Gonna miss those frosted/tempered glass, thin body, the premium/elegant feel. Basically, gonna miss the Z.
how poor its battery would be. only 2700mAh with a more powerful SoC.

Battery? 2700 mah sealed?!? Are you kidding me? In a year it will be 2200 mah and there would be nothing to do about it.
Design? I haven't seen such huge bezels to non-Sony flagships since 2016.
Sony, give up already! You can't design devices even if your life was depended to it. Oh wait, it already does (Sony mobile department posts abysmal sales) yet they *still* failed.
Mother of bezels!
As always, Sony doesn't know how to design phone bodies, the 5.15 inch xiaomi mi5 is smaller...
Liv, 25 Feb 2016Why Sony only launched 5" model? There should be 5.5" or 5.7" for the top model at least. I th... moreHey for 5.5 display you can happily buy z5 premium with 4K display
For 5.2 display Z5 is suitable indeed
More compact 4.6 size Z5 compact is very nice
For 5.0 display Newest SONY X smartphones are incredible with wide variety of xhoice and price
Try and think
Have good days:)
To day Sony confirmed that Z series is discontinued w.e.f and X Series will be new line of production. New Soc 820 and all specs upto mark, except thickness and size which them Success.
