XZ' battery easily can last a day in heavy use. Calling it's battery life below average is a huge understatement. After all, XZ's battery does perform better than the LG G5, HTC 10, Galaxy S7.
XZ' battery life surely is good, but nothing great.
Sony is always better. Search for camera comparison and you will see that lagsung sucks.

Something for best photography with sony fones from my experience:
1.Superiour auto is good for taking fast pictures if there is time use manual mode.
2.for night and low light use 8mp instead full resolution.
3.If there is time use manual mode . in manual mode there is not necessary to toggle all settings just play with iso. Use lowest iso as you can. with lowest iso there isn't any noise. for daylight 50//100 for night 200//400 .
4.Don't worry about use lowest resolutions like 8mp because in this resolution camera use its 20/23 megapixel complietly but with downscaling with pixel-blending method(not delete 2 of three pixel on the matrix) .
5.A bad thing about superiour auto is that use the high iso values that not needed in many cases and cause noise . Even in manual mode if you set iso on auto then auto mode use high values for iso that just make some noise.
AnonD-504761, 01 Oct 2016Guys is this will be same price like one plus 3 ??? Help help helpPlease tell me you are kidding, Sony flagship phone have the same price as One plus phone.
It'll be a dream.
Design is depend on own preferences, but personally I love Sony design especially the old omnibalance design language.
Sony has great brand image, so as long as they make a "decent" smartphone that is fully functional as a smartphone, then I'm sure it will sell well.
The main problem with Sony phone is overheating, even the camera overheat and close itself after just a few minutes of recording. No matter how good the camera or stabilizer is, it is useless if you can't do what it was supposed to do.
And did you know why most Sony phones did bad in benchmarking apps? thermal throttling is the culprit. The temperature rising to the point that the SoC has to clocked down to protect itself from damage even before the benchmark is done. And it clearly visible when you did the benchmark a few times consecutively. They really should do something to improve cooling performance on their phones.
The second main problem is battery life in daily use. They are below average, let alone fulfill the 2 days promise said in marketing. It even struggling to survive one day in normal smartphone use.
The third reason is Hirai, Sony really need to fire that guy... his "cut price to earn more profit" strategy is no good. Sony brand image is screaming about quality and perfection but they actually use lower grade parts in their smartphones leading in not so perfect performance.
For example in internal storage usage, while other brand already using fast enough internal storage to score 40k - 50k points in passmark disk benchmark, Sony only put second grade internal storage with speed that can only score about 30s k points. With one exception in Xperia X, they put a good one there and able to score a generous 41k points.
I hope Sony can fix those issues in the next flagship. I really want to hold and use Sony phone again with pride without the need to limit myself from using some features which makes it a real smartphone.
meh, 30 Sep 2016awww... it's ugly. this phone is probably designed by an old man, and targetted for elderly people.What do you mean by ugly? It's a beauty and sexy af
sanso, 30 Sep 20165.2 inches is a ludicrous size, flagship shouldn't be lesser than 6''I think the Ultra line shouldn't be 6 inches and larger always. I think they made the Ultra line to compete with the Note. As more Korean women started liking the Note. Xperia Z Ultra was 6.4 with top specs. Then they made forgot about the spec part and kept to 6 inches for; T2 Ultra, C5 Ultra, and XA Ultra. Which all ended up being mid-range. I think they miss their chance on the XA Ultra should had been the X Performance, to compete with the Note 7, especially after the whole blowing up part. The Note 7 is only 5.7 inches.
Alien , 01 Oct 2016There are a lot of people who like monolithic type phones like Sony has. If you don't like it ... morethen buy it.
im just saying it's ugly. each of us we have personal opinion, right?

If you don't like it it's your personal taste. I will buy the XZ specialy for the design and that black-brown-purple color.
You should at least appreciate that you have a choice and a wide range of models.
Oh, and im not old, I just love good design. ;)
Guys is this will be same price like one plus 3 ??? Help help help
Hi, I just want to know which is the US Version and which is the international version between the F8331 and f8332?
meh, 30 Sep 2016awww... it's ugly. this phone is probably designed by an old man, and targetted for elderly people.ugly?! why?! it is very beautiful !! it is very unique with simple look design . this simple design has more life time against other .i hate my iphone 6s design now but xperia z from 2013 is beauty for me after this years. simple design is better i think.
Tann Hauser, 27 Sep 2016Awwww....awww... it's ugly. this phone is probably designed by an old man, and targetted for elderly people.
sanso, 30 Sep 20165.2 inches is a ludicrous size, flagship shouldn't be lesser than 6''Says who?
I love having compact flagships... I've had the Acro S, Z1 Compact, Z3 Compact... and I am ready to move a bit higher into the 5.something displays... but the thing that is really ludicrous is to believe that screen size has anything to do with "flagship devices"...
your comment goes against the Galaxies, the iPhones, LG's... basically every major manufacturer out there... the only line falling into your description would be the Ultra from Sony and that one is not consistently a flagship lineup.
I am considering this one.... but maybe I will wait for an incremental upgrade.
