Sony phones are somewhat unstable and laggy when released. But after some updates Sony phones will shine and beat all others. For example my Z3 is butter smooth now. More smooth than it was. I agree it will overheat but not much. And yes motorola is smooth too.

But the argument would be that the report is a year old and many things would have happened then. Sony may have the most stable Android OS (a near-stock Android similar to other OEMs such as Motorola, Nokia, etc.) but the biggest problems for them this year is still the overheating, unoptimised software (which is evident by some issues on the app loading/multitasking and the aforementioned overheating) and battery life. I said it here before of my experience. When I had the Galaxy A5 2016 and the Huawei P8 Lite 2017 phones if you noticed both have a skinned version of Android and have inserted bloatware on the UX/UI. Ironies of ironies despite having a skinned Android the two phone lasted more than a day with no charging midday even with use of GPS (Google Maps), Sync on, minimal games but constantly checking emails, social media, news and moderate use of Youtube via 4G and above average use of YT via wifi from 6pm. So, If these example doesn't tell you anything about these devices then I don't know what will. I have done almost all battery saving tips & tricks under the sun (apart from rooting) and I still found Xperia devices to have poor battery life and I'll be lucky if i will still have 30% by 7pm with my M5, Z5 & XZ.

Any other xz user here, have their device while make a call the screen goes blank..? maybe can share something to fix it.. thx
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017You should avoid Samsung unlike you want laggy crap after few months.But why would Samsung phones lag after a while? The new Grace UX seem very responsive albeit bloated than XZ's almost stock Android.

And their TouchWiz. I've tried my cousin's phone which he uses Galaxy J5 2016 and it's kinda heavy and not working well at all. But after I recommended to used Nova Launcher and their custom ROM (sorry I don't know what kind of ROM he uses), it runs like champ!

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017Dude my S6 and S7 are lagging as hell. I've not faced any lag with other brands.Lol this is why I never bought Samsung phones after getting an GALAXY S6 a few years ago; LagWiz. And this is why I get Sony phones because it is not laggy after a few years
