New 2K LTPS lcd screens with sec gen pixel eye coming from Sony:
Laqesh, 19 Jan 2017Actually I am in love with the design of this beauty, In my opinion if say with a single word ... moreSony's design is so unique and stylish. Not only design. Sony's UI is minimalistic but very well optimised as it works better than stock android UI in Google Pixel.
it reads in the spec section that it doesn't have radio..personally i have never used an xperia without radio.could this be a mistake by gsmarena?

It's a kind of a phone every time you turn it's back and take a look, gives you a proud feeling.
Sony phones are the most underrated and the most hated phones out there, as if there's a reward for it. For me Sony is the best and it comes from a long satisfying experience.
Laqesh, 18 Jan 2017Obvious, Remember when Xperia ray was released in 2011, It was one of the slimmest and unique ... moreYeah bro... I agree. I love Sony for their distinctiveness and uniqueness. And i will never look back...... The sad thing is that Sony is very underrated by commuters. I guess some people just don't see true Potential when it exists.
I love sony so much...their design is no like other...there are so many companies copied other design and Sony has the fastest autofocus camera in the world...
I own 2 years old Xperia Z...it was the best phone I have since 2014..My Xperia Z drop over than 10 times on height like 1-2 meters..but 2016, the screen was crack because it was dropped and can't use anymore...I really love that phone so much..It was my last phone...and now i use my brother's tab and I hate the tab...And I want to buy new Sony smartphone in 2018 with OLED screens ..
My father owns that phone and then he gave it to my sister as he buys Xperia Z Ultra and Galaxy Note 4(my father is Sony and Samsung user..but he says he loves Sony more than Samsung)...then my sister gave the Xperia Z to me as my father buys Apple iPhone 6 for her...So I was the last person who use that phone..On december of 2016, my family and I go to shopping complex while we are travelling..
[deleted post]Can't speak regarding all the device's you have mentioned as I have not tried the all.
For the one's I have used however, I would say the XZ competes with them very well in all area's excluding camera.
And considering the trouble some of the other OEMs are currently experiencing just getting a stable build of nougat onto their devices, Sony are absolutely killing them by comparison.
Don't worry though, the usual fanboys will be along shortly to tell you it's better than them all at everything, regardless of whether they have tried any of the others or not, brace yourself......
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2017Hating and hating. Trolling and trolling. Bad reviews and confused users. Just one thing to do... moreYeah i noticed too a lot of haters here, my neighbour has Z3 3rd year now no problems, really durable, i had z2 at that time and now z5, waiting for nougat to come.. Software really smooth no lag, no overheating.. I filmed at concert FullHD 60 frames for about 25 minutes no camera shutdown.. Sony best
Laqesh, 18 Jan 2017Well, About the issues you mentioned about the design, let's clarify with my perspective.
... moreSo you like the design more than I do....Good stuff.
But let's be clear, neither of us is right or wrong on this issue. It's subjective, and your perspective is not a 'clarification' of my own.
SLR2099, 17 Jan 2017I agree with you 110% Sony has the most unique design, and never looks like other devices.Obvious, Remember when Xperia ray was released in 2011, It was one of the slimmest and unique phone that time and it was appeared to be slimmer than it's actual thickness. When Xperia Z released Sony went step ahead with their design language. Now in 2016 again with XZ.
Lex79, 17 Jan 2017I agree they have their own design philosophy, not that it is 'far beyond the others' though.
... moreWell, About the issues you mentioned about the design, let's clarify with my perspective.
First you mean bigger is the space got by bezels or phone thickness? Second if the bezels not justified by duel speakers, still it's comfortable for one hand use with those bezels other than slim bezels specially in the bottom. Also it's Sony's design philosophy. There are lot's of people who would like to watch a MV or short video with much comfortable front facing duel speaker audio.
Third I am not left hand person tho I use left hand for writing, drawing and also it was my habit to keep phone in my left pocket. So mostly unlock it use left index finger and it's fine for me.
I got my security update yesterday and China is always most late for updates.
What about overheating Sony problems? How many minutes you can make a video? On my last z3+ it was a joke - 3-4 minutes and it stops.
Hating and hating. Trolling and trolling. Bad reviews and confused users. Just one thing to do: don't trust them. Ignore them all and go for Sony. Sony's UI is the best it never lag or hang. The smoothest android UI in the world. And its smoothness won't decrease even after some years. I will say again go for Sony. But if you want brand name instead of stability it is different thing.
[deleted post]Glad to hear about batterylife improvement too :-) .
Its indeed a superb phone, with nougat even better.
