Anonymous, 09 Nov 2016Yeah there are some more stereo speaker smartphone in the market I forget mention, but Lenovo,... moreMost people don't care about water resistance, as its really a gimmick like so many other features in flagships. Sony says not to take it in salt or cholorinated water anyway, which rules out all pools and beachs. I would never take a $800 phone underwater. Plus there is heaps of online complaints about Sony not giving warranty on submerged phones in very shallow fresh water. Also water tight phones restricts speaker and microphone volume and adds to higher phone temperature, ventilation etc etc. Of course, waterproofing is a personal choice though.
lola, 09 Nov 20165.2inch 1080p is less than 500 ppi.
5.2inch 2k is more than 500 ppi.
the limit of human eye ... moreNonsense.
Only reason for 2k or above is VR, and it sucks at 2k.
No you cant see the difference between fhd and 2k on upto 5.5, its only that marketing convinces you
If one desires VR, 4k is the choice.
Tho SoCs are to weak for 4k VR at the moment.
[deleted post]also i dont think that a phone which lags a lot after some time is not really a flagship :) got 4-6GB rams and still can't beat a 3gb ram on speed test, gaming performance which doesn't render, also a phone which causes gray lines on screens.. that's no flagship quality..
performance isn't measured by specs alone and gimmicks which some phones keep on adding.. good at start, but only few people uses after several months..
I love Qnovo, 31 Oct 2016My Xperia Z2 take very nice photos in superior auto mode, I believe the camera software is up... morehowever i don't get satisfied in automode.. xD as quality in Manual is far better :)
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2016this is a phone dude. not real dslr camera.
so auto mode must works perfectly. because most o... morepeople who want's Quality won't get satisfied on AUTO mode.. doesn't matter how good that automode is.. but automode lacks and can't shoot amazing shots and.. unlike in manual which is ALWAYS better than auto.. auto won't be able to compete..
those are just an excuse of people who lacks knowledge on using a camera and refuse to learn...
But yea, i agree that for US who use manual. it's the best :)
aside from camera, it's an amazing device packed with lots of premium output.. software aswell is a lot better than any android device.. so as an overall device it's a good one..
[deleted post]It is Sony and not Chinese crap. It is cheap dude. Look at iPhone and lagsung - are their craps cheap?
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2016Plenty of other brands have front facing speakers. Please get your fact correct..e.g. Motorola... moreYeah there are some more stereo speaker smartphone in the market I forget mention, but Lenovo, ZTE, some of the HTC flagshipvls don't have water-resistance. Do you think water-resistance is easy to do for a tiny device with stereo speakes? Even their latest flagship still not water-resistant for many generation.
[deleted post]Does it? One extra sensor alone, or even extra speaker costs as much as that one extra gb more...
Dont worry, its a Sony phone, 3gb ram is quite futureproof...
As my 3 year old model z1c with 2gb seems to still be running whatever I throw at it without any lag.
[deleted post]+ look at iphones, 900$, 2 GB of ram, HD display, 2000 mah battery....
[deleted post]Cheaper than this (0_0).??? It is a one month old premium sony flagship.
Hello my friends.
I can tell my experience .i have used Sony z1 z2 z3 compact and z5 as well.1 week ago i ordered Sony XZ from Japan as its not available in Canada.I m using Samsung s7 edge since last 5 months and actually i m Sony fan but i didn't like Sony Xz camera and speaker volume. Samsung has much better camera quality and loud speaker volume than Sony .Sony quality getting down day by day thats why there is not single store left in Canada all moved from here.Gud luck Sony

Anonymous, 08 Nov 2016Weren't you the same guys that were boasting about the 4K display of the Z5 Premium? Why boast... moreyeah.. i said 4k was useless except for vr purpose back then. then he got angry. lol. typical sony fans.
Everything is gorgeous, the only problem for me is the thickness, sony should make it slimmer. 6.9 would be purrfect. i have xperia XA (7.9mm) and it's too thick for me.
Got the XZ for few days now in China for USD 582. Fully Satisfied with the phone and this is no doubt best smartphone of 2016. Build quality is ahead of my expectations and love the loop design. Amazing music quality connected with my MDR XB650 BT headphones. Camera quality is much better than my previous Z2. Overall the best smartphone I have seen out there even though this is a country with Iphone crazy. What I have to say for all those trollers comment here is, You have no idea what you are talking about. Highly recommend to buy this phone.
Tann Hauser, 08 Nov 20164k is for phablets and VR use eventually, and it is overkill as much as 2k is.
But if one wi... more5.2inch 1080p is less than 500 ppi.
5.2inch 2k is more than 500 ppi.
the limit of human eye is 500ppi. so you can see the difference between 1080p and 2k. but all resolutions above 2k are useless without vr.
so.. again.. sony $ucks.

But if one will brag about 2k, other has more right to brag with 4k then.
