One major was getting really warm. So warm it was uncomfortable to game. Not much has changed with the design but I rather have a metal body the carbon or glass/plastic. This will hold for long, and screen protector is not needed. Only if you know you will drop it often or put it together with sharp objects. Had mine since relese and not a single scratch on screen or the phone. I do not use any protection, it's completely naked ;).
Performance wise, it's a huge improvement. Depends on how you use your phone. You see if you only text, call and use social media you would not even see a different using an 4 years old phone. Maybe if you scroll through Facebook tho.
This is the first Android phone that I've used that has been flawless performance in everything, Im very picky with phones. But this done the job really well.
What I love about this phone is the speakers and the hdr screen. It's really nice watching video on this device even without a headset.
And to be honest the design is perfect if you play games or watch video. You have some place to actually rest your fingers, on like Samsung s8 plus with i owned for about a month it's a freaking nightmare watching movies and play games. It's too much screen that you don't even know where to hold. It gets slippery and uncomfortable very fast. So this is a huge success after the XZ that has a cheaper plastic design and mine died after 3 weeks because of a main board failure.
I really like this phone and saying it's not much of an improvement after the z3+ is just laying to yourself. With that said phones don't get much better nowadays, and that's good because at least you can now have the same phone for a much longer time. With the monthly updates and the solid build this phone will last!
Got the phone last week from local store. Can't say that I am impressed by the design or the features - I like Sony smartphones and the design of it, but nothing new has been done here.
After getting the phone, you will definitely want to add a screen protector as the screen is not that much a scratch-resistant as you would like it to be, so better be safe than sorry.
As for overall performance from the phone - nothing new you would not expect from Sony. Applications are working fine and opening fast, the interface is still user-friendly and allows a lot of customization. A special feature that I really liked, would be the possibility to set the screen and text size in settings, that makes usage of the current device much more pleasurable.
As for the performance of the camera, Sony still is on top of their game, but also here you wont see much of an improvement even if comparing with Xperia Z3+ for instance.

Everyone say wifi is buggy, haven't yet experienced any problem. I'm always on wifi, both home and at work. Got like 12 different wifi locations it switches between. Never had any issues. Make sure you have the latest update.

You open your phones camera and it focus really fast on the object you pointing at even tho you don't see the "laser".

After switch to 5GHz 802.11n, all good.
I see there is a "laser autofocus" function, is this means that somewhere on the phone fires a visible laser to the object? I tried some shots with mine but I didn't see any "laser".
Is the "laser" invisible? If it's invisible, how can I know if it's functioning?
[deleted post]There is no way you can switch on/off the Qnovo adaptive charging in Xperia smartphone, you can for the battery care feature which prevents the battery from getting overcharged overnight a deferent thing from Qnovo.
[deleted post]This is ridiculous, you can't turn on and of the Qnovo adaptive charging, it is a built in feature.

Anonymous, 24 Nov 2017The 1.5-year old S7 is still better than this phone.Actually S7 battery degradation on time, but XZ1 still rock with Qnovo for many years.
My XZ1 keeps dropping wifi connection and repeatedly try to connect and it is very slow - it usually cannot see any other networks while my old xperia z3 connects normally and see much more available wireless networks.
Anyone suffering the same? I am on 2.4Ghz network
Why the iphone X has the Japanese satellite system (QZSS) included in its GPS system and no Japanese made phones has this? #strange
