Aa2, 21 Jul 2016If you switch on glove mode you might be able tp use pencil or bowl pointI have try drawing on my Z2, there is no need to switch to the Glove mode or whatever, just same as you drawing on the paper by a pencil or wand.
I believe you are a fake user, because I take awhile read all you comments. Are you trying to misleading people by your hidden agenda?
Avan Dr, 21 Jul 2016Z5P is better than XP IMO, better design/more stylish, better feature, better battery, all tha... moreWell it also has a BETTER screen too. It's more COLOR ACCURATE & BRIGHTER than the Z5. But hey, if you like your colors a bit off and a screen that can't get very bright, go for the Z5. With the NEW Stamina Mode, the battery life on my XP is just fine by me.
Yeah the 4K thing is really no big deal. On a TV, yes. On a smartphone, no. Sammy does have their "moments" I guess (VR, Samsung Pay), but I had the S7 and no way do I think it's better than the XP. The speaker sound quality including phone call quality on that phone was beyond pathetic. I don't even have VoLTE on my XP (not avail if using a US carrier I guess, but other countries offer it) and it STILL sounds better during phone calls! It lagged a lot despite having 1 more GB of RAM, it too was less color accurate than the XP's camera (and screen), etc. I'll prob NEVER buy another Samsung again. S5 was a letdown and although S7 was a huge upgrade it still wasn't good enough for me. Headphone listening via MicroUSB port on S7 resulted in music skipping like every 3-5 minutes. On XP I went 3-4 hours STRAIGHT one night a couple weeks ago, and it didn't even skip ONCE. NOT ONCE.

I agree 4K screen on Z5P is overrated, many say gimmick. It looks like Sony don't know its potential. LG outed 2K screen first, but its Sammy that know the potential, they worked with oculus, that resulted gear VR and gear VR apps. and now all vendor copy them, even Google copy them.

Look at this beauty. Aero space grade aluminium, leica letter, diamond cut finish. That band just gives nice accent.
I guess Sony loves that band idea. So they copied it, but in cheap way and results this ugliness.
sorry guys .. i want ask, this phone is waterproof ?
please answer it .. thank you very much before :)
Avan Dr, 20 Jul 2016Nah, not excellent. That's why they change the design to uglier one, uglier but better.
Whe... morefirst of all don't call me a fanboy , secondly I never said that is ''full metal body'' and the third fact is if you really knew it then you could said then and there - you didn't .
you always like to bring something unimportant to every argument , anyway that piece of jewelry looks really really bad imo ... any dual camera setup is seriously ugly so are the antenna plastic stripes .
after 1 week ! just i can say it s amazing . I have this and note 5 together. i just wait for a ultra or pro model with Stylus support! active stylus
Phone Guy, 20 Jul 2016Not Plastic.. The X performance is metal.... I have it.
The frame IS polycarbonate (or plastic), but that is a GOOD thing b/c it means less interference and better reception. The back IS metal though for sure. And front is glass.
Avan Dr, 20 Jul 2016Its plastic dudeNot Plastic.. The X performance is metal.... I have it.
LostInTheSorrow, 20 Jul 2016Overpriced as usually these days. I can't believe that it's even worse than Z5 Premium.It's not worse, it's actually BETTER in several ways. 4K screen on Z5P was overrated b/c most of the time it wasn't ACTUALLY IN 4K anyway. It was just "4K-capable".
See this video then understand. Camera & screen are BETTER than Z5P. Z5P had a bigger battery and prob somewhat better battery life, but it was also A BIG PHABLET PHONE. lol Battery life on XP is just fine. Not THE BEST like Z3, but especially with Stamina Mode it's just fine.

When Sony announced X and XP, you fanboys proudly said that sony finally use beautiful full metal body. I know something about design, metal blocks signal. I did think about antennas etc so i said that the frame is plastic. Now we know who's right.
Btw want to know excellent design? P9. GsmA said its like a piece of jewelry, it uses premium material and perfect for signal with triple antenna design and signal+ tech, it handles signal better than any phones.
Third class phone with fourth class battery timing don't spend your money on this scrap. I sold it back and bought LG G5 which is much much better than Sony X Performance in performance as well as battery timing.
RockStar2005, 19 Jul 2016Hey Team,

I doubt that is the case with this one and IF panel at the bottom on the back is for antenna and not some Japanese variant like Xperia X Performance which has the same panel at the back then we can safely assume with almost certain that is all metal. otherwise either poly-carbonate sides OR back would need to be glass OR metal with plastic band antenna stripes like on iPhone and HTC phones .
That looks fairly thick phone like HTC 10 8-9 mm and with SONY engineering it should have enough space for at least 3000-3200 mAh and that's minimum imo ,unless there is some new pieces of hardware inside... and actually I have yet to see what takes all that space in xperia xp because SONY where managing to put bigger battery units before with same amount of hardware parts in the same or even smaller phones so it's too early speak about this one which is not even out yet . and the leak appeared first here on GA so the what you can read in the article is probably all info you can find for now ...
I will take look on that article and let you know what I think in next reply .,.
+ also it just come to my mind that top and bottom flat pieces could be plastic to serve as antenna windows ( explains why top and bottom is flat and why there is barely any curve at the corners ) .
TeamAndroid, 19 Jul 2016you maybe missed the article here on GA - it has over 250 comments http://www.gsmarena.com/exc... moreHey Team,
No I saw the GA article too. Even commented. To me it's ok but it looks like the Z1s, at least on the front side. The rest of the phone is different I guess.
So wait, is the frame polycarbonate on this new one too, or is metal?? I know the polycarbonate frame helps improve antenna reception, so I'd rather have that, which is what the XP has. But is the new one's metal or no?
Also, any word on the battery size yet??
Sony's had some interesting ideas............. (note this article is from 4/15/2015). Aside from this "tube" design, I like the plate and also the all-glass one too.
Ali Bashir, 19 Jul 2016I just didn't understand what is the wrong in bezels, haters just wants to spot on anything on... moreNothing wrong with them if those bezels are used for front facing stereo speakers , two large camera sensors ( preventing camera bump) , and if both top and bottom bezels are in balance giving it nice clean look and place to comfortable hold your thumbs when using phone in landscape mode while the device is keeping 70% screen-to-body ratio .
downsides of too small bezels are that you all the time keep pressing touchscreen and if phone has capacitive buttons then it's even worse .
