[deleted post]But it is true that Sony didn't put in enough effort. Look at other divisions, they are doing well, but in the smartphone division they keep missing the few things that can already push them back to how they were when they release the XPERIA Z3. But, if they get the few things right, like the bezels and better low-light performance, next year is going to be their best year
Ali Bashir, 20 Oct 2017Dude, you probably had a serious issue with your xz, the xz didn't have the best battery life ... moreBro, could you rate xz1 from 1 to 10 base on your experience using it. 1 is the worst and 10 is the best. I would like to know if this phone is worthed to be bought. I guess the battery life is around average but who cares, you can plug it in the wall outlet. I'm taking about the game performance, the camera performance both daylight and lowlight and the experience on browsing net. Thanks bro, it seems you already have this phone, I wish I could buy one.

I guess we should look out for these more than hackers, since we always use social media lol

...and some people reading actually start believing these circumstantial false presented posts.
That is why readers must be very wary of trolls and their causes while reading sites like these.

They all... moreTrue, any buyer can have a chance of getting a defect or bad unit when buying any smartphone. But really, the chances are small, and it is normal for a brand to have some defects on some units, and Sony is not the only one that have some defect units, other brands are also the same. I don't know if he is a hater or troller, but seriously is Sony the only brand having some defect units? Most of the time u should get a unit that have no problems...

A buyer can get a bad unit, just as with any other brand phone...
They all have equal quality control problems, Sony is definitely not better or worse than the competition, and users report them problems in user issue threads around the web.
You have quite a circumstantial fan based stance on quality control.

you are extremely lucky if you get a good unit. so better to avoid buying it.

Yes all 2016 smartphones Sony no exception had limitations in video recording with high resolution or frame rate, but 1 min video recording is very weird watch this video..
In general this limitation been totally solved with the excellent new 10nm snapdragon processor as you can see in the video with the xz premium.
The big deal of Chinese brands usually is their cheap prices but you are saying the Huawei smartphone is even pricier than the Sony?? (o_0) lol, just get the xz1 without hesitation.
Confused between Sony Xperia XZ1 or Huawei Mate 10.....?
Currently owning Xperia XZ since last year, overall have smooth performance but battery have issues need 2 charges for a day, and also it can't record video more than 1 minute error pop up for overheat.
Although I like XZ1 design language specially HDR and 3D thing but Huawei mate 10 also impressed me from its looks and display
. Huawei mate 10 launch in uae at price of 2299 dirhams while Xperia XZ1 have cheap at 1999 dirhams..

So a bottom mono speaker is a future instead dual stereo speaker?..sorry man,sony will not follow ,instead they will overtake it,like a 4k screen...all hater say it useless,but eventually it a future,and other company will follow it *cough samsung cough*,and furthermore sony already make a bezeless screen before samsung...sony camera is worst ehh?,that just show where your mentality,all flagship this day have good enough camera to day to day use,want a better camera? Go get dslr or mirrorless...you the one that make lame comment
Sony need not to follow the blindhead trends . Whatever Sony offers you is a pure Quality. Previously Xperia ZR n now Xperia X user, I know what a Sony smartphone is...?
I've just handled Xz1 for an hour, it is really a Great device. I'm much Surprised about the Camera improvement..!
Well done SONY...
savage, 19 Oct 2017What the heck are you talking about?,want a bigger screen? Got buy a tv lol...what is the mean... moreBezelless screen is NOT a gimmick or short trend. Its the future and Sony will eventually catch up. You obviously don't undertand it. So, I will help you. With a bezelless phone, the phone is the same size but with a bigger screen. So, its all positive. Do you understand ? There is no downside to this. Nothing is being sacrificed. Technology is moving along with bezellesss screens. People who break screens usually don't have a case protector anyway. FYI, Sony will be using bezelless screens in 2018, so what will you say then ? As for Sonys dual speakers, who cares, as they have below average volume and below avergae sound quality. And Sonys rear camera has the worst in its class...go and read about it here at gsmarena. Your comments are lame.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2017no one needs overpriced phone with poor lcd and huge unusable bezelsome people want reliable products that could last long but manufacturers soon realized if they made their products last long, there won't be anymore money to harvest. as beauty as those bezel less display, try to drop it from your hand to the hard floor, you know in real life,shit happen.when that happen you want some assurance those product you bought won't need repair or replace. back in the dark days, when nokia rules the world. when you drop your phones, you could hear people scream loudly and then a relieve because their phone survive. these days,whenever someone drop their phone, a scream and most of the time soon follow a regret because their drop their phone
it's not about bezel less design.it's about practicality. if screen technology and material improved not just for display quality but reliability,robust, power consumption, and a great sensor/ai to detect hand touch on those display whether we actually just trying to have a grip or touch the screen.if all that could happen.yea.go bezel less design. and make the apps that utilize those bezel less.make the best out of it.but until then i want a proven product.i'm a customer not beta tester

If we didn't see the benefits of Sony's shortcomings (as proposed by some), we wouldn't have purchased their phones to start with. If we wanted impractical bezelless phones with even more shortcomings, we would have bought them...
Dear Sony, why u r not using amoled display in ur products..? nowadays all mobile brands are using with low pricing in extra features and specifications but ur products only not that much of giving any high specifications but prices are only increased.. Why
no one needs overpriced phone with poor lcd and huge unusable bezel

Got buy a tv lol...what is the meaning having a large screen to body ration ,but having ancient single mono bottom speaker..lol,bezelless edge screen is just a gimmick and short trend...let me tell you something,bezelless is great on outside,but on inside they have to sacrifce,like dual front stereo speaker,and proper front camera,and thats why,front camera on s8 is crap,always overexpose...samsung didnt need to show sony how to make a bezelless phone,because sony already make a bezelless phone ,its xperia zl,at that time it was great achievemeant on body to screen ratio,so the reality is samsung is slow...lol typical samsung..slow and laggy

All big brands are going for bezelless displays or at least trying to...Are they all fools? That is the trend now. It is always better to have bigger screen to body ratio. 95% of our daily activities with the phone is just looking at the display , whatever may be use. Those speakers at front do not need so much space as Sony phones thick display. Samsung has shown the way how to do it. But Sony is peculiar ...slow to learn. Bezels have no use for the consumers and it should be as minimum as possible. We dont pay a premium to gaze at those ugly thick bezels. We want brilliant display and as much as possible.
