Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017X Perf., X Compact, X, are cheaper than Z5 and have better SoC/overall specs.Yes, but only cheaper by around 50 usd in the case of the Xperia X. But never mind though, I decided to just buy the XA1 :-D

Plus that non Sony brand.is 1St year throw away poor brands.
297 ppi? 2700mah battery? The Xiaomi redmi note gives you 400ppi and a 4000mah battery at less money.

Till I smashed the screen for a 2nd time and it was a better option to get a new phone then pay to replace.. I got the X Compact. Still a good phone, allot more durable! The z3 seemed fragile..
Only ~70.9% screen-to-body ratio and a liitle 2300 mAh battery? Sony, you are "out of time"!
I like the spec and price is reasonable, downside is battery capacity. I suggest you guys just get the X Compact instead which has better SoC, Stereo, DAC, Better Cam, etc. and only a little bit expensive.

Either lower your expectations or increase your budget.
What's wrong with sony batteries these days, Doing better day by day in terms of hardware and specs and doing worst in battery part. Very disappointing.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2017Neither. They both look good, but they both are too expensive. Better look for an older flagsh... moreYes, thank you for your advice. But I don't see any old flagships suiting me.
The Galaxy S7 might still be expensive for me even if the price drops after the Galaxy S8. And I don't see the Galaxy S6 as a choice either.
While the Xperia Z5 here in the Philippines is still pretty expensive at around 530 USD given its age.
And Apple, LG, and Huawei are outside my book.
But if the S7's price drops hard enough, I'll be considering it.
Again thanks for your advice :-)
I own Xperia XA. The battery hardly lasts a day with batter saver mode. Now with XA1 its the same 2300 mAh. It seems Sony did not get their Customer feedback well.

I have been looking for a mid-range phone that is not huge, but with a high-end camera, forever. Unlike most people it seems, I don't use my phone for everything - I actually still prefer a laptop. I have had a Z3 Compact for 3+ years now, and have also grown to love the physical camera shutter button. It is so much easier to press it down half way to focus, than using some sort of touch screen button. I hope my Z3 Compact lasts till April 26th!!
Many comments revolve around fingerprint sensor. Why would you need it anyway? To use your fingerprints while you are sleeping?
