Yes very true. Even my parents' Xperia Z1s (released January 2014), which only has 2 GBs of RAM and a slower processor, is faster than the Samsung Galaxy S7 does at loading up things. Like clearing the notification table for example. And the S7 has 4 GBs!! It's cuz TouchWiz sux. lol

Avan Dr, 02 Jul 2016And you guys still busy to find one review that praise x camera from tons of reviews in youtub... moreYea.. my country included on the list of de-focused sell..
Sony's bad sell in my country mainly because of two things:
1. Very bad after sale service. They always make excuses to reject our RMA, and even if accepted, we still have to wait for at least 6-9 months before we receive the phone back. At least that is what I heard.... because personally, I never had any problem with Sony before, even my 3 YO Xperia phone still alive and kickin.
2. Very high tax. Aside from Sony's already ridiculous high price, we also need to pay up to 38% import tax, then 10% corporate income tax. So, we need to pay flagship price only to get a midranger device here. That makes the ultra cheap low end Chinese phones looks very compelling.
Design wise... I'm fallen in love to the simple yet premium feel omnibalance design at first sight. But sadly, spec and function is more important to me... But, if only this phone has similar spec to the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, then I'd be willing to pay the extra cost anytime...

But I'd rather end up having heart attack with that price tag than buy any cheap crap phones which might give me more than a heart attack. Just saying.

Not moving away but refocusing on other markets.

Guys, you have bad news, Sony will move away from 3 biggest market.
This year, for the first time Sony made their Midranges "X Series" outperform other brands high end flagships، regardless X Performance which is their first and great concept for this year's flagship.
Sony is "singing out of tune".
IFA is the K.O.
RockStar2005, 01 Jul 2016Tann,
Wow you've actually seen them do that with Sony Xperia phones but not Samsung etc?? ... moreIts quite obvious, most revs on web keep it on 8 mpx, despite 23mpx available in auto.
They use the shutter button without first step autofocus, despite software button usage producing better results with better autofocus and less blurr (try it out and see). And then they crop it at least 200% to come to noticeable noise. And its always about the noise only, never about detail, color, ghosting, noise reduction artefacts, etc.
And therefore so much difference in Xperia camera revs.
Manilla shaker is one of few revs that actually uses sony camera properly in auto, without tricks, soft button with prefocus 23 mpx in daylight, lower mpx set in lowlight as it produces better results.
He gives 200% crops for all the same as to see differences in detail and noise, and offers 1:1 shots alongside compared to a dslr camera.
In video he actually presents stabilisation performance of video rec in auto for daylight and night shooting, as mostly people actually are mobile while recording video with their mobile phone cameras....
My own compares: I use same scenario shots if available, on 100% and sometimes up to 200% crops(where you start seeing grain) and Sony always looks better because of bigher mpx count.
Dont know any person that crops their shots more than 100% though, for any a good reason, ever.
RockStar2005, 01 Jul 2016 Yeah Ali, I remember for the Z3 the test they did was on 8 MP too. I call CONSPIRACY!! lolThy still doing it with z3+,z5, x lol
Ali Bashir, 01 Jul 2016And know what, all camera tests of xperia against any brand they do it on 8mp not 23 :D

Wow you've actually seen them do that with Sony Xperia phones but not Samsung etc?? That's some MAJOR BS!
Yeah I mean, I'll read reviews, but I've seen 2 different REPUTABLE reviewers have very different opinions on the same phone. So in the end, sometimes you have to just try it out yourself to know the truth. And I heard you can use something called Flashtool on the US XP that would allow you to flash the int'l firmware on it to make the fingerprint scanner work. Doesn't require unlocking the bootloader or rooting either.
Ali Bashir, 01 Jul 2016And know what, all camera tests of xperia against any brand they do it on 8mp not 23 :DLook up manila shaker compare with x performance.
Obviously best camera at daylight, best for video for its.stabilisation in daylight and lowlight, in lowlight photo at 200% ( 200 mind you) grain is noticable, but in 1:1 and 100% crop even, bests them all, even in lowlight and night shots, having best iso and color reproduction ;-)
Talking about automode.of course ;-)
