I would lol at Samsung too but they are doing a decent job on the camera feature.
However, it seems you are here to bash sony products and not to talk objectively on the matter.
You have no arguments and yet, come here and compare fail brands with a steady and traditional one.

Sound? Only in speakers I guess. Sony is no longer the leader here, Samsung, LG, HTC are all better.
Build quality? Weren't Xperia phones the ones that cracked by themselves?
Screen quality? No way, Galaxy S7 has the best screen on the market, period. If you prefer better whites, you get any other phone with a good IPS screen (LG G5, Xiaomi Mi5, iPhone 6S and so on)
UI responsivness? We'll see, but with 3GB of RAM I highly doubt it will be better than the mentioned devices, all of which have 4GB.
Baterry life is a joke, 2700mAh, this thing won't have more than 80h. It should be better than the G5 with 2800mAh, but it won't be better than the S7 (Exynos version) or the Mi5 (which has 92h with its 3000mAh battery).
And conectivity? You're blind, my friend. G5 and Mi5 have infrared, FM radio, type-C connector and so on.
Mi5 is nowhere near the X Performance concerning popularity, yet it's a far better phone. Like I said, I was a Sony fan while they actually made better phones than the competition, but they're not doing that anymore. I think Sony's fans are worse than Apple's or Samsung's.

Furthermore, I do not see s7, g5 or m10 as better choices.
This phone will excell in camera, sound, build, screen, UI responsivness, performance, batterylife, connectivity
Just as all those mentioned
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2016Hey don't suggest Samsung in this page.Why not? I am a Sony fan, my first phones were SEs (K750, W810, K800, K850, W910), all good phones. Had a SE Zylo with broken flex cable and an Xperia ray that was good until the Android 4.0 ICS upgrade. Lately Sony has been a lot behind the competition. This phone just shouldn't be more expensive than a Xiaomi Mi5. I'm not saying it is a bad phone, but at that price point there are better choices (S7, G5, maybe HTC 10 and many more). And one more thing, Sony, if you want to sell, even at this price, then don't launch the phone on the market 2 months later than the competition. That's how you loose ground. Same for HTC.
Why the downgrade in screen size with the sub-par 68% screen to body ratio? Straight up those numbers: 5.2" screen and at least 74% screen to body ratio. And 8.7mm thickness with no OIS and that poor battery?
Why no 4K video recording? There should be 4K video recording with both cams.
Why just 3GB of RAM? 4GB should be standard for a 2016 flagship.
Why no FM radio or infrared?
Why no OIS on the back camera? Every flagship has this.
Why just f/2.0 while others are doing at least half a stop better?
Why just 2700mAh battery?
Sure Sony is doing something right: one of the best designs out there, pretty good cameras and overall specs, but there are too many things missing, considering the flagship status and insanely huge price. Xiaomi Mi5 is a better choice for half the price. If you want IP68 rating, then S7 - a lot better screen, 4GB RAM, better camera and battery and many more.
u have not right to talk about sony :) sony are the bestest over all..... in battery perfo.. etc etc love it's creativity
When will it be released and how much would it cost? Will it be worth it for me to wait with a laggy Samsung galaxy s4 or get the z5 compact?
ICE, 21 Mar 2016Exactly...the 950 really is that good. This is from the gsma Z5 premium review : "Sony's... morewhat are you rumbling about ? here is what Z5P can do ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8X6MTGpaYM
I'm a big HTC fan... but I have to say, this phone looks and sounds like a contender. I'm really impressed by it, Sony did a great job on this one.
Poorest after sales network in mea region. NeverNever ever created extra ordinary, only extreme price hike, availability no where, and Z1 bought in warranty next year battery zeroed. Change required half its price, also destroyed set altogether being a TV shop authorised agent. Since a total loss of 650$ boxed, I promised never to look at Sony! Actually report they get all is perfect, but No Never.
sony is definitely better than other phones coz they make the phones that people suggest
AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM !!!!
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2016Gibberish nonsense,,,
