If that's your stance I would suggest that (in this case at least) 'choice' is not really something you have much use for.
AnonD-151883, 12 Jan 2017I own a Z5 and almost certainly it would break from that type of fall...your comment makes no sense.Your Z5 is a quite great phone, how you don't like it but why you spend it to yourself? I think you personal didn't find a great phone, because every phones must have pros and cons, since you don't like the Z5's pros and only remember it cons, I think you better find another, perhaps you will again complaining to the next brand, because you can't find how good is it.
Tell me what is the point of upgrading to XZ if you have a Z3, or why you should buy the XZ instead of the older Z series phones when they are all basically the same phones? The XZ is so overpriced for what it offers. It should cost only 300-400 dollars.

You way you said it suggested it was aimed at others, but semantics I guess eh.

I've used their phones for years and haven't faced any issues. I'm not targeting anyone neither am I forcing people to stick to one brand it was just a thought I wanted to share that's it. By the way people are free your choose any brand they like or what suits them best :-)

You might not be able to, but speak for yourself.
I've heard Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC fanboys all say similar in respect to their obsessively loved brands, and you know what you all have in common?......Your all dead wrong!
Have switched from Sony a few times myself, it's actually quite easy.

I may buy any other brand phone for everyday use. Cheap one for sure. But if I pay huge money for phone I will do it for Sony only. And not for iPhone or Samsung.
Sony always has been underrated,I'm using Sony phone since the Walkman series when Nokia was the king, followed by their Xperia series back then it was Sony Ericsson Xperia bought Ray, Sola, U, J to name a few after that tried my hands on Z2, Z3, Z5 and now the X all have been superb phones. Once you start using Sony phones you won't be able to switch to any other brand this is what Sony does to you. Well it's my personal experience as I had a great and long time using their phones. Looking forward to grab the XZ soon.

Hello guys, I'm confusing to choosing between Xperia XZ and Xperia Z5 premium. Is there any huge differences between these two phones? Do they have the same performance? and which is better??? I need your suggestion guys... help me... T.T
AnonD-27765, 12 Jan 2017I've watched an Xperia XZ repair video on youtube. Once the XZ has been opened for repair, say... moreThe same holds true for the S7 and I'm betting the iPhone 7 too. In fact it's probably the case for most sealed water resistant mobile devices.
It's just a trade off for having that feature in the first place and is not itself a mark against the XZ.
Why is its price on par with other flagship phones with higher screen resolution and more RAM and battery capacity? This phone should cost only 300 dollars for having outdated specs. I mean, its specs are so similar to Xperia Z2.
