It seems like Sony doesn't know what people want anymore on a phone. Removing a fingerprint sensor (on the US model) and not having a CDMA radio or any partnerships with carriers? They're not nearly as compelling as HTC and even THEY were having trouble selling the HTC 10, even with freebie deals on their site unlocked. If this phone ends up being 699 US, it's going to flop just like the X Performance did. The 1080p LCD display, 3GB of RAM, and only USB 2.0 Type C are all cost cutting measures too that keep this phone from warranting full price.

"More doesn't necessarily mean that it's better"
Only one question! If recording video 2160p was necessary, so! Why wasn't on XXP!? & if that wasn't necessary! Why that's on XXZ!? 2160p & FHD display!?
2160p recording video has need to minimum 2K display!
Outcome : More does necessarily mean that it's better!!! Yes Mr Anonymous :|
4example : 4K recording video in XXZ!

But, less megapixels also doesn't mean better camera ;-(

And just because a phone is cheap doesn't mean it has to break fast. The M series weren't a failure. Many people still use them without any issues.
BeeAnt, 01 Sep 2016So, over X Performance it has:

- USB type-C
- 200 mAh mor... moreAnd also better audio (3D surround speakers)
4k recording is back.
Quick charge 3.0
Overall it is a significant upgrade from the X and XP. Those who tell nothing has changed don't know anything about the XZ
A Sony Xperia X z Premium with HDR screen UHD and raw ois camera soon please
Equinox Hydroid, 01 Sep 2016Nothing changed comparing to X and X performance,,,,also they used the design of lumia and nokia n9You don't know about this phone, which is why you're telling nothing is changed
Go read the hands on reviews.

No ir blaster,3gb ram instead of 4gb,5.2 inch instead of 5.5،still not a big difference in design
What is the main difference between xz and can performance??
Nothing changed comparing to X and X performance,,,,also they used the design of lumia and nokia n9
I think this is a good upgrade over X Performance (for half year difference) but why does it still not support slow motion?? I mean wtf, even mid range phones have this.
A few later, (probably after December) but:
1. 2K display
2. Snap 821 or 823
3. USB type-C v3.0
4. Four GB ram
5. Bluetooth v5.0
Now! ZX not > X.performance & Sony is on wrong path! Again!!
I am using xperia mini. Still not dissatisfied with ram of 512mb. My phone never strucked up but, loading of games consumes much time due to being a single core 1GHz processor. Comparing it with most of the samsung phones being used by my friends, my xperia mini is far more better.
Now, Its time for me to upgrade to xz(only if price is reasonable)
