I have my sony xperia z for three years already and I'm thinking about exchanging it for the xz just because I want the new andriod softwer. Do you think that it would be as longlasting as my xperia z?
Qnovo battery charging make charging safer and always care to the battery, it won't explode like those crap phones from the competitors
[deleted post]Only 3gb ram instead of 4gb
-4gb or 6gb ram if not optimize is useless yea good in papers not in real life
No FM radio
No FM transmitter
-check xz dissable guide there is murata fm chip
No optical image stabilization (OIS)
-xz Electronic Image Stabilization(EIS) beats all flagship in video
No physical android navigation buttons
-physical button is ok but everyone will think sony copies apple like samsung copied apple home button
Bottom and top bezels are taking too much space
-bezel for stereo speakers. top and bottom best position for speakers. bezels protect the screen from damage from drops
Only a 1080p LCD display
-Only a low 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution
1080p IPS LCD comparable to 2k samoled. LED more sharp than OLED
Screen has blueish tint
-samoled has more bluish tint and xz displays accurate color but a but washed out
This is VR era, Google has announced daydream.
Wanting 2K and 4K is not only reasonable, itÂÂ’s a
-not everyone use VR
Low Speaker volume
-low volume output for longer battery life. more voltage more volume output less battery life. there is an app called volume+ that boost volume
No Carl Zeiss camera glass
-xz uses unknown glass for rear cam
No flash at front camera
-other flagships dont even have flash at front cam
No split screen for true multi-tasking
-buy LG but LG next flagship has no split screen
161 grams is too heavy
-161grams is too heavy are you a baby?
Low Battery life of 72h endurance rating
Battery too small
-mine lasts 1-2days
Laqesh, 26 Nov 2016Come on guys, the point is simple. Sony is back in the game. And with my experience back panel... moreYeah, the back panel really distribute/discipate CPU Heat well even when I'm multitasking Game, Photo, Social, etc. Apps.
I can also record upto an hour of video @ max 4K, more than an hour if lesser resolution compared to other phones that can't even break 5 min or 10 min.
They can even burn or blow up.
One more thing I was impressed about XZ is, I installed the sensor box app and how nicely light sensor works, when cover the sensor with shadow of finger it shows results very fast and perfectly, get rapid zero when cover it fully. Also for XZ included pressure sensor too.
Koriane, 26 Nov 2016And your point is? And your problhlaaaemmm is?
Koriane, 26 Nov 2016And your point is? Come on guys, the point is simple. Sony is back in the game. And with my experience back panel do really great heat conduction and even though on heavy usage I don't feel over heating but normal warm up. If someone say's the phone over heats I doubt of his handset defect though.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016Hi!!! please help! i am planning to buy XZ! if ever my first sony phone! and i am very excited... moreIt worth every single cent, about the thermal issue i have no idea, but with the snapdragon 820 and alkalido back cover this smartphone should never overheat, the camera of this smartphone is amazing, i mean it is sony's domain, what should people expect, BUT!! The auto mode takes only a good picture, learn how to use manual mode to see the perfection of this camera, you may need only 2-3 tips maximum, oh, and don't forget the dedicated camera button, waterproof, battery life is great maybe not the best, battery health is where always excels, consider 2+ years, this smartphone is one of the fastest smartphones, performance beast!, 2 front facing stereo speakers... And finally the most important thing it is "sony", good luck :).

Camera is superb, much there to explore and have fun with learning and discovering, once you master it there is no better.
If youre a plain and simple camera automode user tho, this phone is not for you, rather get sth like iphone or sammy.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016and your point is ???And your problem is?
Not all that impressed with the battery life of this phone. Seems like I'm recharging it every 48 hours or less. It's not as if I'm even an intensive user, the odd text message, Whatsapp, and perhaps 15 minutes of gameplay. I'm sure I could activate the Stamina modes but that would disable my email notifications. Is this kind of battery life to be expected?
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016Hi!!! please help! i am planning to buy XZ! if ever my first sony phone! and i am very excited... moreNo overheating problems..Battery life is average. Camera is below average. You can read all this at the XZ review here and the flagship camera shootout.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016Hi!!! please help! i am planning to buy XZ! if ever my first sony phone! and i am very excited... moreThe reasons why XZ not heat:
reason 1, the 820 chipset used.
reason 2, Alkaleido is release heat faster than other material.
reason 3, beneath the Alkaleido cover is a whole piece thermal paste.
reason 4, the lightest software won't run unwanted rubbish apps in the background.
reason 5, signal is very very easy to received, because the polycarbonate for better reception and go a step further to reduce the heat from strengthen the signal.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016Hi!!! please help! i am planning to buy XZ! if ever my first sony phone! and i am very excited... moreCompare the spec and make your choice. Also, read the comments. Are you using GPS? From my previous experience and friends, the GPS signal on Asus phones is not strong. Kinda weird when the phones are using snapdragon. Xiaomi midrange phones with snapdragon 600 series are better than Asus when it comes to GPS signal.
kenny, 25 Nov 2016currently have a z3+, which is ok, but at times it will shut programs down due to over heating... moreBackup and reset. Update software and after that continue to reinstall other apps. I'm also using Z3+, it's warm thanks to the snapdragon 810 but its not hot nor shut down other apps. I turn on the stamina mode when I'm on the go and lazy to carry power bank (but not when I need to use Waze), I don't kinda like the display when stamina mode is on.
