probably those who doesn't enjoy Xperias have no knowledge on how to use manual mode..
doesn't know what Hi-Res audio is, doesn't know about Qnovo battery, Doesn't know that Xperias have control on Screen calibrations such as Supervivid, Xreality, and RGB settings.
doesn't know that without touchblock, underwater shots are terrible due to screen reacts to water current.. probably doesn't know how to adjust EQ, Soundstage, Doesn't know about LDAC which doubles the frequency of APTX and this makes sony's audio go on Lossless thru wireless audio..
probably doesn't experienced wireless controlers with touchpad on PS4 controller which is good for aiming which is not available on other controllers, PS4 remoteplay which trumps any games on emulators due to games of PS4 are better than games on smartphones..
no latency on PS4 controller to Xperia vs other controllers which has Latency on wireless..
doesn't experience Xperia's Ram management specially on X series with smart cleaner..
even after several months, xperia does perform like it was bought yesterday..
xperia's might be getting warm but atleast it doesn't explode.. the software prevent's you to continue if the device gets warm making the device safe from any physical damage..
thou my Xperia X doesn't really get hot even after playing Online game for more than 2 hours.. gets warm but still at normal heat.. wayyyyy better than Z5 which has SD810..
front camera is superb with 13mp.. it feels like it is a rear camera..
Top notch stabilization...
OH BTW, Xperia's doesn't have that quality problem like grey lines on S7edge.. some people suggest to remain at lower brightness for that purpose to be safe.. and how would i see the screen against the light? Xperia's got no problem on Max brightness.. even iPhones and HTCs got no problem with that.. btw i got S7e aswell..
also Xperias doesn't get easily overprocessed when applying some edits on photos.. unlike Samsung which easily gets overprocessed with few adjustments..
and list could go on..
All android phones with v6.0 and v7.0 nougat have the easiest notification functionality.....that Google has perfectly made
NO NEED always-on display featured by samsung s7 and s7 edge and some LG phones
Gsm area has also prooved Always On display sucks battery quickly and it is nothing special
So Always On Display is merely a gimmick sucking battery
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2016yes it is good but i miss some features like always on display on my s7 :(ALWAYS ON means Always SUCK battery........no matter what samsung says gimmicks
S7 and S7 edge are 9-month-old phones with problematic HEAT issue and even explosions LIKE note7...
Google has already made the easiest notification system in android 6.0 and 7.0 v.
M0re0ver s7 and s7 edge are poor USB 2.0 BUT XZ has USB type C
In s7 and s7 edge:.." everything is OLD" and lags touchwiz and poor faagship-standard camera are proof of lacking innovation
SONY xz boasts the highest megapixel...new RGB ir sensors and top-notched G len and market-leading 5-axis tech and triple sensing tech ..which can never be found on s7 and s7 edge
--, 16 Oct 2016xperia is not cheap.
it is overpriced, with plastic frame and thorny corners. lol.what are you on about plastic there is no plastic in
the XZ is ALKALEIDO aluminum
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2016lol ! a motorola fan is here ! you have not xperia xz you just have motorola !Lol have both of the moto x play and the Xperia XZ. And I can compare them really.dont like the screen of the Xz compare to the moto. And the battery is nah 2900 vs 3650mah have difference. Buf camera and design wise, yes the XZ is elegant and have an impressive camera shot.
--, 16 Oct 2016lol. the frame is made of plastic. and the metal alkaleido back side feels like a colored pla... moreI am totaly agree with your coment, and very very disapointed with plastic frame. My xperia z3 have a much better bild quality. I am gona step over this phone.
oh before i didn't believe a sony phone is good . guys it sonyericsson is still alive !! after years far from sony i coming back very good choice i feel quality with this
I don't get it why people still complain about Sony's camera algorithms. Do you guys have any idea about this? You just picked it up from somewhere on the Internet.
Keep in mind, XZ has a completely new camera software. Includes new camera options too.
Lompoc, 16 Oct 2016Sorry bro,, I'm using Xperia, and very satisfied with camera performance,, high quality image ... moreDude, camera is sony's business, so no wondering why they are the best in the market, have fun with your Xperia, oh wait!! I think you are already ;-).
Lompoc, 16 Oct 2016Sorry bro,, I'm using Xperia, and very satisfied with camera performance,, high quality image ... moreSure, mate! I totally love Sony for their clean uncluttered UI and highly optimized overall software. Just not their post-processing on full-resolution captures. It looks just awful to me. Have never been a fan of their smartphone cameras. I really hope that they fix their altos, since their mechanicals behind the camera on the XZ and the improved EIS is top notch!

AnonD-39653, 16 Oct 2016This looks like perfect phone. I would only add 1GB of RAM (just for spec wars, not that anyon... moreBut Sony can beat all phones with 4 or 6GB ram with just 3GB ram. Remember that.
After one week of useing the xz i can say this phone has an amzing batterylife i dont regrat a moment of buying this phone specially the forest blue one which i bourgth and i have also the black one as a backup phone this one is alot better then the x performance i saw videos on you tube where they compaire it against s7 edge htc 10 and other flagships and the xz beats them all in performance its a device that is essay the recomend to anyone who likes sony phones

Again, its not about 'reviewers'. The camera samples speak for themselves. You are free to compare them with other smartphone samples. No rocket science! By the way, coming back to reviews here's what GSMA thinks about its camera capabilities:
"Time and time again, though, we can't get truly excited about a Sony camera. It may be equipped with every imaginable engineering breakthrough Sony could come up with, yet you'd be able to find more pleasing images if you look elsewhere. Try not to get us wrong on this one - it's not a bad camera, it's just not the best camera, and it still beats us why Sony, of all makers, can't make it the one.
Detailed 23MP images from the primary camera, suffering from noise and noise reduction. Good dynamic range and colors in good lighting, uninspiring performance when light levels drop. All the extra engineering (laser autofocus, white balance sensor) leads to little perceptible improvement in image quality and shooting experience."
Good luck to you with your ignorance!

I don't know, first you go and buy Xperia smartphone then come and talk about it.
AnonD-481725, 16 Oct 2016Facts says that you never touched an Xperia smartphone. What fact? I own two Z3Cs. You should stop judging.
They are dumping the same shitty post-processing algo on all smartphones that the make. Now that's the real fact!! If you don't believe compare XZ samples side-by-side with other smartphone camera samples from GSMA's review section. Talk with proof!
