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?
Le, 28 Mar 2017This will be worse than XA, display is not full hd, battery is same... Sony is going backwards. 16nm
holds the battery more efficiently
Great design and great single hand size, z5 camera with 3gb ram + 32gb rom. Helio P20 slight win over the snapdragon 650. If u find the fingerprint sensor useless and ok with hd only display then...but better get the last year's xperia x at similar price.
rated, 25 Mar 2017Still 2300 mah battery,other products gone 3000 mahSony has better implementation, better power management!

S3mm, 23 Mar 2017X compact better camera, easy to use form factor, nouget update make it blazing fast, stereo ... moreNot so sure about better camera considering the specs are the same for both. If anything this will be better in the camera department because it's newer than the x compact.

better camera, easy to use form factor, nouget update make it blazing fast, stereo speaker
