Trever, 21 Aug 2016C'mon guys, knock it off!! It's becoming boring reading the reviews here, if you don't like it... moreI can agree with some of that. However, will assume it's the comments and not the reviews themselves you meant when you said you were getting bored?
Yes people should make their purchase based on what suits their own personal preferences best, that is in fact exactly what I do.
It's when such people then start claiming their smartphone of choice is then the best smartphone ever, whilst talking constant Cr*p about the competition (like using their devices as paperweight's for example).
They will quite happily do this yet claim foul when their own precious smartphone of choice comes in for critique, write it off as 'trolling' and play the victim.
Sorry if you can't see the contradiction and double standards present here.

C'mon guys, knock it off!! It's becoming boring reading the reviews here, if you don't like it don't buy it as simple as that, after all its your money your choice, no one can force anyone to like/buy a phone, people buy phones which meet their expectations and options are always there. Take a break and spend your money wisely, I respect your comments here so let's not make it a war zone. Have fun and enjoy your gadgets, peace!!

No. It has a trick. It has antenna lines. They put antenna cables outside metal, connected them with antennas and other chips. So with a antennas outside metal it means they can get signal from any directions.
Now how about XP, it has metal back. it doesnt have antenna outside. The antenna is behind metal about 1,5cm from top frame, so since signal can't goes through metal, the closest way to reach antenna is from top plastic, it needs to sneaks 1,5cm behind metal to reach antennas.
Thats why the results is not good.

We are talking about material, cheap plastic, and premium metal. Metal block signal, plastic doesnt, but people wants metal phones anyway. And vendors job is to create it. More metal more premium.
And the10 has premium full metal unibody design. And XP only metal back, the frame is plastic, more plastic less premium, right?

My knowledge on the phone is extensive, obviously more than yours. The fact that you still think the Z5 is better than the XP only further validates that.
I don't need a video to tell me something different than my own experiences with BOTH phones. It's COMMON KNOWLEDGE that TouchWiz is a pretty laggy (not to mention LOUSY) UI, so for all I know the phones in your video were messed with to get more favorable results for the S7. The fact that the video does a "Speed Test" tells me right there it's BS. Speed tests are meant to determine NETWORK SPEED not device speed. It's all right here. Read it and learn something.
And who the F cares about boot up speed? And who cares if the HTC 10 is a unibody or not? The point is it's METAL on the back, and STILL premium! I can't believe you actually tried to argue that it matters.
In this video, the results lean towards the Xperia's favor with regards to speed. The point of this is to show you that benchmarks aren't as accurate as people think. There are MANY factors that can alter the end result. They are really just guidelines at best. My S7 SKIPPED every 3-5 minutes while playing music via the MicroUSB port (this happened ALL THE TIME), while my XP after 3-4 HOURS didn't skip once. THAT'S what I care about........the phone that doesn't dare F with my music listening. So F the S7. I'd first use it as a coaster for my drinks than as a phone.
XPERFORMANCE, 19 Aug 2016no sony xperia xperformance in south africa??? :-(
why ????SONY high end phones from MWC... well I could say that those are not actual flagships and come only to selected markets only , and are being released in the first place because of the demand in home country - Japan ... they like new phones every six months or so .., therefore a summer release to a market of Z2 , Z3+ and XP . true flagships come at IFA along with compacts Z1 , Z3 , Z5 and have much quicker release to global market... hope you see the pastern...
anyway there will be soon new SONY devices announced at IFA on September 1. and according to all leaks and info so far will have this specs :
-KUGO or Xperia XR - 4.6 inches : 3GB RAM , 1080p , 2700 mAh battery (seams a lot like successor to Z5 Compact , and SONY already used before letter ''R'' in Xperia ZR whcih is compact or mini variant of original Xperia Z )
-KAGURA or Xperia XZ - 5.2 inches : supposedly is coming with 4GB RAM and QHD screen...

For now Check this out.
With the same network xp got 150mbps, S7 get 200mbps. S7 has dualglass design like Z5. So dual glass is better design.
Stop overhype plastic on XP, signal strengh is still in question, but plastic cheap is abvious.
And HTC 10 has premium full metal unibody NOT only flat METAL BACK. It means the frame and the back of HTC 10 are made from one piece aluminium.

I've read several reviews that said that plastic/polycarbonate is better than metal for signal reception, so I dunno. Well that's a matter of opinion.........the HTC 10 has a metal back too, so again I don't really so your point as that is very much considered a flag ship phone dude.

Plastic side for improved reception? LOL. The low end phone has plastic side and plastick back, better?
Large space glass back is far better for signal than plastic side only, z5 also has nfc chip on the back. Best placement.
The dual glass design is premium design, only for flagship and budget flagship or premium midrager, like S7, mi5, honor8, one plus X, A team.
While metal back is only for low end. The only phone with the same metal back design is honor 5C.
The most applied design is metal back sloped to side, like redmi 3, honor 5X, galaxy on7, medipad t7 etc.

Yes Ali, the Z5 is great but overall it's NOT better than the X or XP (which are identical in terms of camera, screen display, etc), as PROVEN in this video:
And plastic sides make way for IMPROVED reception over metal sides, in case any one on here forgot this is a PHONE we're talking about.

Sharp edges to protect phone? Still saying x series overheating :(, for the second time they are not, but overheating control program " overheat security " is adjusted earlier to send overheat report and shutdown the camera and dim the screen and restrict hardware performance, did you hear about overheat control in Xperia smartphones? You are not making any sense, you are trying so hard to prove that z5 is better, it is not, but it is excellent device overall, but not better than both xperia x and x performance :).
