Tann Hauser, 17 Dec 2016You assume too much.
It was a shopping mall store full of people. Thats an average case scena... moreWhile front facing speakers are good for some people, the dimmed volume is unsuitable for many people. Sony's ring volume of 67db is lower than average on smartphones...e.g. ring volumes, LG G5 -73db, Samsung S7-71db, Iphone-75db, Moto G4-72db, Huawai mate9 -85db, etc, etc.
Sony needs to change the sound volume chip to catch up with the competition.
Dimmed volume is just not acceptable in 2016.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2016Even 50db would be loud enough in a quiet store enviroment...but in a real world, 67db is lowe... moreYou assume too much.
It was a shopping mall store full of people. Thats an average case scenario. And 67 db was loud enough.
People forget we are talking about front facing speakers here, not bottom placed. So if in pocket it wont ring as loud as bottom placed one.
But its a perfectly capable and loud enough speaker. If one want front facing stereo speakers on a phone for best media consumation experience they must be acceptable to dimmed sound while wearing the phone around in a pocket.
Thats all there is to it.
Tann Hauser, 17 Dec 2016Should be careful when trolling, should ve written "cant hear..." at least. Went to the store... moreEven 50db would be loud enough in a quiet store enviroment...but in a real world, 67db is lower than average and not enough volume. At least, you have finally touched a XZ.
Jojo, 17 Dec 2016I tried it. Only heard whispers from it. Lol.Yeah sony is the king of whisper class volume.
Jojo, 17 Dec 2016I tried it. Only heard whispers from it. Lol.At 67 db you hear whispers? Either you only troll, or indeed need a hearing aid. Thus, no phone issue, but yours solely.
mamal70, 17 Dec 2016it's absolutely the best phone Sony has ever built, however its not the best in the market. f... moreNot the best? Why man? iPhone 7, S7 Edge, LG G5, HTC 10 even OnePlus 3 with 6GB huge ram suck compared by Sony.
Speaker volume is the only thing that lets this phone down, other than that it's a sleek and elegant device.
I have this fone since the start of november and all i can say is its an amazing device, i didnt like it wen it was launched i was evening think of switching brands but once i checkd it out in real life i was really impressed, performance is exellent especially with stamina mode completely off, camera is probably the best on the market with the most realistic shots, battery life is fantastic with nougat update, the build quality is excellent especially with the alkiledo metal nd gorlla glass 4,its an excellent alrounder thats worth every penny will defnilty recommend to others
it's absolutely the best phone Sony has ever built, however its not the best in the market.
fortunately it has no major drawback to make a sony lover regret about his choice.

saintshaka, 16 Dec 2016don't buy this crap phone. Price is too high and you easily buy an iphone(if you like ios) or ... moreYou do know this phone has water resistant capabilities don't you, I have no issues with my XZ and it's wonderfully made, been using s7edge before that and it good too. It's either you don't know your phone well or you are just being nitpicking.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2016sony uses low quality polycarbonate which is easily cracked during bend test. see jerryrig vid... moreBasically that jerry rig video is a trash, anything would have snapped with that force he has applied onto . Polycarbonate are pretty sturdy and durable and there is not Low quality polycarbonate.
