What can the Xperia Z3 give if another competitor has a lot of edge in both hardware and software. Plus it offers an internal storage which surpasses the puny xperia z3's 16GB internal storage. And even the xperia XZ 64GB couldn't match that space, as it has 256GB internal storage.
So please tell me. How good is a software update and a non-laggy smartphone if it couldn't offer the user more than a ordinary smartphone?

Even my Z3 works smooth after two years. No other brand can't fight with Sony because of bad software. Sony's software is well optimised and never lag.

[deleted post]I have told currently MIA buddy Lex that haters will always come and go, but a real fan, a satisfied owner will stick always. Thanks for your long comment of cons but this is not enough or worthy to make ruin my love with XZ.

Its quality is equal to iPhone. Samsung's quality sucks. Laggy phones. It is good just few months. I own both and I never lie. After S5 and S6 Edge I won't buy any Samsung phone anymore.

Even the screen resolution is now adjustable to 1080p or 720p. The SuperAMOLED's pros - bright display, vivid colors, high contrast, wide viewing angles, always-on functionality - far outweigh its con - warm color temperature that has already been fixed in the latest software update.

[deleted post]Have you heard of minimum requirements/specs for a flagship device? Unless it is an iPhone, 4GB RAM, 2k display resolution, 3000 mAh battery, camera with OIS are at at least the minimum specs requirement for a flagship phone that costs upwards of 600 dollars. 3GB RAM, 1080p, 2900 mAh battery or less, camera with no OIS are just not flagship grade in this day and age. Megapixels don't matter. It's the other camera features and quality that does. Dual stereo speakers don't matter. It's the loudness and clarity that does. It doesn't matter where the fingerprint sensor is mounted or what the USB type is. These are trivial matters.

Sony doesn't even have a flagship phone with 2k display and 4GB RAM up to this day when those are now the norm. Samsung gives only the latest and best technologies in their flagship phones.
Samsung Galaxy S7/.S7 edge objectively are the best flagship smartphones until the S8 comes out. XZ has no real advantage over the S7.

From design, performance, relialbility, etc. Even a better colour choice. Better battery life. More features. The are 4 screen setting to adjust the colours contrast. Adaptive Display, Amoled Cinema, Amoled Photo and Basic. Basic gives plain boring washed out colours like a LCD screen. Amoled display is far superior, just read any review site world wide or try it yourself, especially in gamimg. I doubt very much that you have ever used an Amoled screen as I see that your just bashing Samsung in every Sony forum.
S7 camera is better, especially in low light situations. Read gsmarenas review below.
XZ has stereo speakers, but the volume is too low, so I prefer the S7 with great clarity and great volume. XZ is ridiculous with its square corners that easily get stuck in your pocket and look plain ugly. XZ is quite bulky and heavy because of too much wasted space. Its really a Sony Fanboy phone only. Serious owners buy other brands.
FYI, Sony doesn't make any screens anymore, its all outsourced. Sony only makes camera sensors and Playstations now.
Laqesh, 09 Feb 2017S7 is better than XZ in design?? on your opinion please.Yes, in his opinion ;-), for me, read my post before this one
Trever, 09 Feb 2017Oh c'mon you don't even own the XZ so how can you say that it's inferior to your ugly looking S7??The s7 overall is a candy smartphone, the design, colors of the display and camera are like liquid paint, over saturated, the xz design is super gorgeous, it is mostly meant for men, the colors of the camera and display are very nature and healthy to the human eyes, unlike the s7's, i had 1 hour of gaming the gangstar Vegas with my sister's s7edge, my eyes are bleeding XD, no wonder why LG and Sony didn't use amold with their smartphones until now, hence they are one of the biggest screen manufacturers in the world.
Laqesh, 09 Feb 2017S7 is better than XZ in design?? on your opinion please.Yes. S7 has better design than the XZ not only in the looks department but also in ergonomics. S7 looks premium (especially the gold variant) and feels premium in the hand. It's a perfectly-sized phone. It's easier to handle because of its rounded edges unlike the XZ which has sharp edges. It's also easier to use one-handedly because it's thin and small unlike the XZ which is quite bulky because of too much wasted spaces. It's as big as the S7 edge already with a 5.5-inch display.
Trever, 09 Feb 2017Oh c'mon you don't even own the XZ so how can you say that it's inferior to your ugly looking S7??XZ and S7 were exactly my top two choices in buying my next smartphone and I tested both phones extensively before making my final decision until I decided to buy S7 instead and I'm glad that I made the right decision. XZ is not a bad smartphone but considering its hefty price it's not a worthy purchase. I would've bought it if it was only 500 dollars. It shouldn't cost more than that. It's not worth shelling out an additional 300 dollars for a smartphone that has so many shortcomings and are not up to par with other flagships that cost less but offer more. I get more value for money in S7 than in XZ.
- 1440p SuperAMOLED display
- glass thinner body with metallic frame
- camera with bigger pixels/brighter aperture/OIS/slow motion/nicer UI
- faster processor that doesn't overheat even continuously recording 4k video
- more memory
- bigger battery
-more polished and prettier UI
- more software features like Always-on display, Private mode, Kids' corner, etc.
- wireless charging, capability and complete accessories including a fast charger.
The XZ being sold here doesn't come with a fast charger and doesn't even have earphones in the box. XZ can only compare to Samsung A series. It's not a proper flagship unlike the Galaxy S7.
