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.

same old boring design again. it looks similar to z1. and that empty bezel is useless. it doesnt have any function other than as a place for putting the brand name.
why dont they cut that bezel and put their brand in the back?

Refer the second image comparison (Outdoor Zoom in), the Xperia XZ1 doesn't taken distortion image, but the iPhone 6s plus and iPhone 8 taken distortion image, you can check the lodge's door have distortion for iPhone 6s plus and iPhone 8, but the Xperia XZ1 doesn't capture the distortion lodge's door, so the Sony distortion Could have been trolling as bad marketing strategy by the competitors.
But you can see the iPhone 6s plus and iPhone 8 capture distortion image, but why don't you trolling there?
UltimateZeroSeconds, 17 Oct 2017Why nobody told you the second image comparison (the outdoor zoom in) taken by iPhone 6s plus ... moreall wide camera have distortion problems. even dslr.
but among all of them, xperia is the most distorted. sony is the best sensor maker, but cannot use its own sensors properly. sony's image processing technology sucks
Siva Bharani, 18 Oct 20175+ hrs.. even it will cross 6 depending on Ur usage.. some even get 7 hrs.Thats quite bad battery life for this Sony phone.
RFx, 17 Oct 2017Sould I go with xz1 or iPhone 8 and why?Don't buy iPhone 8 folks, Apple obviously now acting like gold diggers, iPhone 8 is the least flagship smartphone of 2017, 4.7 hd display, 1800mah battery, no headphone jack, ip67, glass back... And the worst is the most expensive price between all smartphones.
Xz1 precisely is better in everything, anything comes into your mind from display, battery, cameras..... into the price xz1 better.
Test, 17 Oct 2017Is the battery any good? How much sot can I get with full charge?5+ hrs.. even it will cross 6 depending on Ur usage.. some even get 7 hrs.
kuman, 18 Oct 2017You say iphone8 better at everything but you say it have a downside,so its not better in every... moreOf course XZ1 is better. IOS cant compare to android functionality and UI. And Sony is among best of android.
Better screen, better design, better OS, better connectivity, faster modem, more extra camera functions, better sound, better AR, better IP rating, better build, better expandability, better batterylife, same speed, better price...
One thing only iph8 has over XZ1 is....better graphic performance.
But choose the XZ1 Compact and iph8 doesnt even have that advantage as they perform the same.
Heck, iph8 still records mono sound...in 2017.?!
