Anonymous, 10 Jan 2017Sadly now china is bigger. Lol.Who cares? Don't troll here.
I will say this:
Sony is much better in all aspects. Others may disagree. Who cares about them? Go and buy other craps and you will regret. Sony is Sony. Japanese giant. What it means? It means super quality.
I own the xperia X which is really a great phone but I've to say that Sony always screw up with the pricing. When X and X performance were launched X was considered a midrange device while the XP was the flagship but pricing went horribly wrong. Xperia X would have been a super success if it would have been affordable but it was not the case. By the time people could understand the flagship (back then) the XP, Sony launched another giant the XZ so the former got out listed and both the X and XP were kicked out of the race. Sad but true Sony has to make the pricing right so that the commoners can afford their phones and stop looking for Chinese phones like Lenovo, Asus etc.which have become popular thanks to the overpriced phones by the Sony.

You gave a m... moreThat's a good and honest comment from you than I expected, It's a good point you mentioned that their is a no best phone and it's all about what best suits your needs. Agree.
BTW I am not a blind loyal fan to Sony. But the with my second smartphone in 2012, Xperia ray after my HTC magic G2, I still remember how it surprised me with speed, Design, Built Quality and ect. Untill then Sony smartphones never made me disappointed. I just mentioned about Huawei to say that China's best flagship can't compete with XZ in some areas, but still XZ lose to it in some other cases too. but overall far better than mate 9. So I am a fan of Sony and open to fair points of arguments, but not to see XZ's shortages everywhere because I am in love with my XZ.

But it is clear that any response I gave to your question that was not wholly glowing praise and adulation was only ever going to be met with scorn.
You fanboys have made one thing perfectly clear on boards like this, and that is that impartiality is not welcome.
I'll give you this much, though I have yet to receive the latest firmware as I am always last in line with ota's it would seem, the performance of the XZ (in all areas excluding the camera) is excellent.

But you will experience a good front facing stereo sound when watch a video or listen a song from XZ and feel slight low volume is not an issue.

You gave a mini review and your opinion of Huawei Mate 9 in a Sony forum. Doesn't that seem weird to you ? As I said before, nobody cares about Huawei here.
I owned a Huawei 11 years ago, and it was a flawless phone. Do you think anybody cares about that comment. Bet the answer is NO, as this is a Sony forum.
BTW, I own a Z5 and going to sell it, as I'm not happy with it. And there is no Best phone, its all about what best suits your needs. IMO....
Blind loyalty to one brand is plain dumb to me. I buy what I think is best and best suits my needs. In fact, virtually all parts from all brands are made in China now. Not sure about where Sony sensors are made.
Kk, 10 Jan 2017How about music stereo speakers are useless with such low volume. with the low volume, those speakers are just gimmicks.

Come on people Sony cells are the Lexus of cell phones.

But with a experience of this beauty how can I see such critics ans stay blind? Yes, haters will come and go but as my favorite phone I will stay on XZ's side.

Because you have nothing to say to me in return you ask why talk about Huawei. Why don't you say what's the best phone or your favorite with your opinion?
Lex79, 09 Jan 2017Your right, haters and trolls come and go, but the fanboys just go on and on and on.....that's... moreI think now you did understand why we sometimes sounds like attacking towards people who says negative opinions about sony, because they are mostly trolls and sometimes it is hard to differentiate between the honest opinions and trolls, and yes the Xperia xz is not perfect, it has its weaknesses and flaws, in these sentences are not good, it attracts a lot of trolls :).
Laqesh, 09 Jan 2017Funny thing is always a new sony hater or troll appear when an old one goes silent, But anyway... moreYour right, haters and trolls come and go, but the fanboys just go on and on and on.....that's a great point you've made.
It ignores the fact that none of you seem to be able to differentiate between critique and trolling and likely never will, but hey ho.
Interested in my opinion now are you? thought I was just a lair and a troll? No, I think you only want me to say what you want to hear, so here's what you do, close your eyes and imagine me saying "the XZ is the prefect and best smartphone ever ever ever and I am in love with it totally."
That is after all what you want to hear right? Anything else would be hating and trolling right?
Laqesh, 09 Jan 2017BTW I am China for few years now and China's best smartphone brand is Huawei without a doubt, ... moreWhy are you talking about Huawei phones here ? Nobody here cares about Huawei. This is a Sony forum, so go to your beloved Hauwei forum.
I guess xperia camera are intended for the pro photographers out there... I've seen my friend tweaking the camera system and the quality pose a great difference... What I love about sony is the hardware n chipset capability... U can still play games for a long time even the phone already overheating like hell... not to mention the sound and great visual enhancement...
