I cant wait this to come out. I am excited for this. Sony made phones are trusted compare than the others.
I am saying this because my Sony Ericsson SATIO and Sony Ericsson Arc are still working but i choose it to put in the wall as display. By now, i have my Xperia Z3 compact, Xperia Z and Xperia C5 Ultra. All working good.
sanso, 03 Oct 2016Snapdragon 820 is old and outdated from Snapdragon 821 you think you're going to fool us by us... moreHow is it outdated? 821 isn't even out yet. And 820 is even a year old. You people will bitch about everything.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016Common sense ;)That means you lack common sense.
I don't remember if lower battery life is one of the many new features added in Nougat.

AnonD-593045, 04 Oct 2016I prefer Z5 premium It's kinda pointless to go for the Z5 Premium.
At least in my country, both cost almost the same, but XZ has better cameras, better performance, better battery, better audio, new design, USB C, and is more durable.
The only advantage Z5 Premium has is the larger screen with higher resolution.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2016Battery endurance will be even worse when the Nougat update comes along for the XZ.Nonsense from the competitors always without any proving. I have old Xperia phone the endurance is still strong.

You can flash an European software to get the sensor working.
Alert: There is NO fingerprint sensor for the US version (F8331)
PLUS: the dual SIM version is called hybrid SIM, you can only use one of the floowing: Secondary SIM and Memory card.
Dual SIM version is also not an option for US version(F8331)

[deleted post]Actually, I too am getting a new phone. Currently a HTC One m7 user. It has served me well and is starting to show its age now. So wanted to try something new.
Samsung S7 edge and this Xperia XZ were the options I was considering.
Rather than reviews I have found forum like these actually are much better to judge a phone. So, coming to the point - the Samsung S7 forum is filled with issues - So its disheartening to actually buy something which people are already facing, specially for the price these devices command. I have found the Xperia forum to be quite good with very few issues reported. Just my two cents.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2016Better choices? Lol. Your favorite Samsung will lag and overheat after few months dude. Like m... moreBeside Overheating...
S7 edge can explode even no charging...
Worldwide..S7 explosion occur.England Ohio even in airplane horror note2 and so on
Obviously samsung has NO quality BUT good marketing
Moreover..there are 31 sperate kinds of S7 and S7 edge with different suppliers of different quality component.......
This is nightmare for samsung customers...for example S7 and s7 edgefail to manage oculus new VR apps despite s7 edge and s7 have 4g Ram and make BIG advertise in VR section
Forget about the XZ, even the X with a mediocre chipset of snapdragon 650 beats the crap out of iPhone 7, S7 and other flagships out there. Overall Sony phones are far more reliable than any other brands, tried and tested, Z, Z2, Z3, Z5 and now the X.
