Anonymous, 02 Sep 2016Yeah, hard to detect Sony's usual the build-quality fault when it first was fine for some time... moreCome to think of it, Sony do have quality phones but apparently only applies to their flagship lines (Z series + the new XZ). It's true that many of their midrange and even entry-level phones have defect components (i.e. Xperia M5 faulty motherboard) but I'm pretty sure it's not happening (if not very rarely) in their flagship series.

The wasn't dropped and was always equipped with a protective case. There was nothing to do to stop it from happening; it was a damn horrible phone. The lucky part is that the buyer needed a replacement motherboard for his broken M4 Aqua and so he bought our unit for that. :-)

This phone is absolutely perfect. Would buy it right now if it didn't cost £100 more than the Galaxy s7 here in the uk
dirknelson, 02 Sep 2016Sony has it's own unique design. It is elegant. Other phones look like each other. They copy e... moreDesign is personal taste. You can't blame people for saying XZ has boring design. And you can't expect them to have the same taste as you.
Why is sony going backwards. Z3 has a thin 7.3mm body and had 3100mah and now you have a 8.1mm body with a 2900mah battery. Dont like the design, though the craftmanship and materials was a verry good upgrade. The screen quality is slightly better(not talking about the resolution cause 1080p in a 5.2inch screen is more than enough for a human). Camera has only improve alittle which they could have put a larger sensor and an ois.
2K resolution on 5.2" isn't reasonable! But 4K recording videos with only 2900mAh is reasonable!! Keep ur opinions 4urself!! I have need to 2K! No!! Even 4K resolution on 5.2" for UHD contents: one's from 10 "HEVC X265 10bit"
That's enough for logical wants!?

Your "wants" is not reasonable.
u4usman4u, 02 Sep 20164gb RAM is missing and a big battery should be there.
Every thing else is awesome.Hi
& also 2K or 4K display
It would have been the perfect phone, but no fm radio, no 3300mhA battery and no zeiss glass for the camera, too bad :(
Trever, 02 Sep 2016Does anyone know about the price of this beauty?? It should be around 700Â€, which is a good price for this flag.
Tho, if that compact is only 450Â€, its a much better cost/benefit IMO
ProJames, 02 Sep 2016I do not like the design. Not only it is very old (the same for about all their phones), but i... moreIf you saw one of sony's xperia display comparison with other devices , it is on par with Samsung's amoled panel or close to it. In addition, Sony always had a superior stamina mode compared to other manufacturers so 2900 mah is sufficient. Therefore, Sony will always be practical and bring that unique quality.
