Naitx, 12 Oct 2017Sony XZ, LG V20 or Huawei Mate 9? Looking to buy a phone which is primarily for gaming but has... moreIn general 2016 and later flagship smartphones doesn't have overheating issues, even my Xperia x with 28nm chipset doesn't overheat.
Display: xz>v20>mate 9
Daylight camera: xz>v20>mate9
Lowlight camera: v20>xz>mate9
Selfy camera: xz>>>mate9>v20
Keep in mind Xperia xz is water and dust proof while the v20 and the mate9 are not, although the Xperia xz has the least speaker volume but the speakers are positioned at the front directed to your face, unlike the v20 and the mate9 it is positioned at the bottom so when you hold the smartphone in landscape mode you might block the speakers with your hand.
My recommendation is obviously the xz, Good luck.
Sony XZ, LG V20 or Huawei Mate 9? Looking to buy a phone which is primarily for gaming but has great camera and sounds but has none to low heating issues. Any other phone suggestions also welcome.. Thanks to those who'll comment.. ^_^
MajidFAREED, 11 Oct 2017Hello XZ owners... I'm about to get XZ, I have a concern about the hand free voice level... fo... moreThe s7 has noticeably louder speaker volume with higher distortion than the xz however the s7 speaker placement is at the bottom while the xz's are two at the front upside and downside the screen, if you are to choose between the s7 and the xz it is worth to mention that the s7 is about 1.5 years old and Samsung smartphones are famous to show its age very early, perhaps the speakers volume of the xz satisfies you because the xz is actually slightly better option than the s7, i am not a xz user but i have pretty much intel i like to share good luck :).

Audio quality ... Noise -93.0dB / Crosstalk -93.6dB
Battery life ... Endurance rating 72h
Samsung Glaxy S7...Loudspeaker ...Voice 69dB / Noise 69dB / Ring 71dB
Audio quality... Noise -92.5dB / Crosstalk -92.7dB
Battery life ....Endurance rating 80h
These are the specifications here at gsmarena...Clearly the S7 wins easily over the Sony XZ with better audio volume and better battery life. Plus the S7 has a better camera, better screen, in fact totally better at everything.
Hello XZ owners... I'm about to get XZ, I have a concern about the hand free voice level... for those who tested it, is the voice level of hand free good enough? I'm comparing to S7
What about battery life (2900Ah) is it lasting for at least one day of normal usage?
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2017Which is better phone Xperia XZ or Mi 5 Xz definite choice.
Hey guys, can you tell me whether the XZ is worth the extra money over the X? I'm deciding on it mostly for the camera and video quality. Everything else would just be icing on the cake, except for the battery. I'd definitely get the XZ if the battery is a lot better. Let me know cause I'm buying the phone next week :)
I use it for 4 month...
Best phone ever.... Good price.. High performance ... Thank u sony...
Just got my xz.. Very good, much better in hand than Z5...really love it..

It's makes me even harder to choose which one since my M5 lagging as hell right now and need to be replaced. I'm in dilemma now.
Oddie7, 14 Sep 2017Could anyone suggest me, XZ, S7 edge or OP5?XZ all the way
- S7 camera produce cartonish-like photos .. XZ is on another level with its manual control it's a DSLR level (don't be tricked by bad low light on superio-auto mod)
- Also sony phones are much better optimized IT WON'T GET SLOW AFTER 30 DAYS UNLIKE SAMSUNG'S
- Also if you are going to root Sony has a large community of developers so you will optimize your phone further and won't miss anything :D
I understand that Sony produces THE BEST cameras and light sensors but they suffer from noise,
but I'm not a person who zooms in on every picture so I still love the XZ's camera a lot, the low light performance is actually really good, but not as good as Samsung once I compared it with a friend's S7E.
I do enjoy photography from my phone and it handles that just fine as long as you don't zoom in all the way. (Who does that???! Let's be real here)
But to me, Sony phones are still very very solid, and very smooth UI.
Samsung's design never really caught my eye...although they have amazing cameras,
Neither did HTC. I liked the 10 a lot but I still chose with the XZ at the end of the day.
The bottom line for Sony is...
Yes. They are very very highly priced. And maybe to the extent of overpricing, but nowhere as overpriced as Apple.
