Another flagship with disappointing screen to body ratio. Why Sony? I want a big screen with small bezel so I can put it easily in my Pocket
Tobbe, 04 Sep 2017Hey, the people who complaining on Sony and praise Samsung should really start to think a bit.... moreSony shouldn't change the Z series to X. It looks like repeating their old name series back in... i don't know. And what you say about battery on XZ1 which only 2700mAh. It's still okay cause it only uses FHD screen but it could be better like more 3000 and above. That's what makes Sony never step ahead.
I have hands the size of a gorilla's...can we get bigger bezels please?
Hanax84, 05 Sep 2017I am not sure the phone is out yet. It will probably be added at a later stageI think it is.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 05 Sep 2017Wait, from what I know only the XPERIA XZ and XPERIA XZs have ALKALEIDO back, and the XPERIA X... morelook at the phone XZ1 photos ( compare with x performance, look at the back of x performace), ALKALEIDO full wrapped body on the sides and back, antenna line on the top, XZs/XZ has only ALKALEIDO special created and prepared alloy from Kobe Steel
The key is that regular aluminium has striations ( lines on the back, especially when the light shone on it), brushed aluminium has matte feel ( not used on any xperia phone, but used on my high definintion walkman - nw-zx100) and is textured.
ALKALEIDO is special as it has not striations ( lines on the back) or brushed feel, it slightly glimmers under the light in all direction but it's not shiny, it's also looks and feels like slightly textured paint, but it's real metal.
Xperia XZ1 with 2700 mAh battery life reminds me when Sony discontinued the PS3 60GB premium and released a cheaper variant 40GB with no backward compatibility. Still after 10 years, Sony makes great technology, but release a downgraded products and produce poor sales that's why I hate Sony.
Hmmm, I wonder what's in store for XZ2 will have? Another 2700 mAh, seen it all heard it all before, save your money for something else like Oneplus 5 or LG G6.
Yup, Sony is seriously fucked up real bad, especially with the naming. From Z5 to X to XZ to XZ Premium and now to XZ1.
In terms of camera performance, Samsung and LG beat Sony all together, even with 19 MP f/2.0. I've watched it on PocketNow, Android Authority, MrMobile, it is still sucks with over sharpening. Ultimately disappointed as Sony is known to be the King of camera sensor. So do not judge me.
I've long tried to support Sony but .... Unless Sony give me solid reasons as to why the need to buy one, I will hold my urge until then.
the moment you think SONY made a perfect smartphone it inserts the smallest battery ever... why sony.. whyyy.. I loved you so much 😞
franci7, 05 Sep 2017review?? battery test??I am not sure the phone is out yet.

imparanoic, 05 Sep 2017I have the XZs, it's a slight update to XZ ( even cases pretty fit on both phones) XZ diff... moreWait, from what I know only the XPERIA XZ and XPERIA XZs have ALKALEIDO back, and the XPERIA XZ1 having a all metal construction build. And since from what I see since I haven't get a hands-on preview, it looks matte, so maybe it is using aluminum or metal and not ALKALEIDO?
NSO, 01 Sep 2017What is the point here SONY ?!!!
Same design - same screen resolution - same RAM - same stor... moreI have the XZs, it's a slight update to XZ ( even cases pretty fit on both phones)
XZ difference to XZ1, XZ1 and XZs uses new camera, triple layer embedded memory which allows instant predictive photos and 960fps, XZ has only 3gb ram, XZ same XZs only supports Ldac, XZ1 supports Ldac, bluetooth 5.0 and aptx hd, XZ1 is snapdragon 835, new body, ALKALEIDO full wrapped body ( ALKALEIDO on XZ & XZs is only on the back, nylon side frame)

Hey, the people who complaining on Sony and praise Samsung should really start to think a bit.
I don´t like Samsung´s naming scheme in the Galaxy S series, for exampel Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8. They have no evolution to their naming scheme what so ever and yet no one complains about that! And don´t get me started on their + devices, their are still the same as the regular ones.
But you complain on Sony for naming their phones Z/XZ and such.
Sure i can agree on some points about screen and some other hardware choices but it´s getting boring now. It´s easy to find faults on other devices EXCEPT your own..
Remeber this XZ/XZ1 uses an 1080p display and battery capacity is okey for that. XZC uses a 720p dispaly and same size battery and it´s still okey. Other OEM´s uses bigger and higher res displays and ofc battery should be bigger then.
