The best is Sony, great shape, features, i.e first to water/dust proof in the world, camera and brand name, durable and i testify that my xperia z C6603 of 2013 still works more faster than many phones including new samsung, chinese phones and LG etc. if you can't beat sony join the experience of xperias.
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 13 Sep 2017Then prove it to me that it can beat other competitors. That includes apple!Play mp3 on iphone can't have hi-res quality, side speaker is midrange standard, irritating with no 3.5mm jack and have to plug a converter just so annoying, iphone doesn't use electro-plating to paint the smartphone any user use their iphone until paint chipped, bezel is bigger than Xperia, protude camera lens and more.
nirvhana13, 12 Sep 2017I laugh so hard of this comment LOL
bigger battery Life, lol again why would they need bigger... moreThose features that you've mentioned. That's all in the past. Do people care about it? NO.
960fps? User's around the world take a lot of pictures. Not slow motion videos. How often would you use that 960fps camera in you daily activities?
That 3d creator app. It's limited to XZ premium and XZ1 only. If that is only limited to XZ premium and XZ1. You think there's no alternative 3d creator app in the playstore?

And you think that sony is the only HDR screens out there? This proves that you don't know anything other than sony smartphones.
Ali Bashir., 12 Sep 2017Oh, the answer for the last question is the real life experience, and life span. Then prove it to me that it can beat other competitors. That includes apple!
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017Are you drunk? Sony phone with 4GB ram is more faster than any chinese phones with 6GB ram. Ca... moreMan thats a lie. For example Mi6 have same CPU and GPU as any top model and cost only 400eur. It have same specs than Samsung S8 or Sony XZ Premium etc. And 6GB of ram.
Sony just rob people. If Mi6 could be launched for 400 then Sony greed asking twice the money because they have a lot of advertising and other crap to pay.
But phone is worth maybe 300 rest is to cover company expenses.
it's 2018 and just look at the huge bezels at top and bottom of the screen. Not acceptable.
I would never claim that Huawei P10 is better than Sony Xperia XZ1 but the P10 has more hardware (a secondary primary camera and a bigger battery) while having a more compact body. All I'm saying is that if Huawei is able to pull that off, then Sony definitely could as well. And they should, since they stopped making their Xperia compact series available in some countries and only offer the regular flagship there.
Dazzatruth, 12 Sep 2017come on.. all I'm saying is sony could have put some effort into the design but they don't wan... moreI don't appreciate bezel-less designs example like Samsung and LG bezel-less solutions, because the body curve edge and display follow the curve edge it looks old fashion.
I prefer squarish designs like Sony. The straight lines is masculine, yes the curve is on side and edge. The color of use rendering the bezel and it is every nice looking with bezel, it's gorgeous and elegance!

now waiting XZ1c for its REVIEW!!! sure it will be an endurance performer and it will be a long time partner with Sony's Qnovo Tech!!! love it!!! :)
Ali Bashir., 11 Sep 2017Dont you see that you are exaggerating with your efforts to prove everything against sony??? Exaggerating? I know sony smartphones since I own the C6502 Xperia ZL. After that good advertisement on the Z2. I sold my ZL and went for the Z2. Then, When Z5 premium dual came out. I need a dual sim smartphone since my primary carrier has issues with signals. So I sold my z2 and bought the z5 premium dual. Problems with Z5 premium dual are short battery life. For only 6 hours of operating time. I diagnosed and tried to find the source of the problem. Guess what. After charging my z5 premium dual to 100%. I turn on the airplane mode and went to sleep. After 8 hours of sleep. My battery capacity is still the same! So the issue is with the antenna! And FYI, there's no way that I would spend a fortune just to replace the 3G/4G antennae, with the price tag of $150. That includes the service charge. I was hoping to replace my phone again after 2 years. Since last year up to now. Sony has been releasing a lot of same crappy models with lower internal storage!
I went to look on different smartphone brands. And I found a lot of them with better goodies! For example:
S7 edge has the edge menu, and has offered 128GB of internal storage! If you look at the last years sony smartphone. All of them are being offered starting at 16 to 32GB of internal storage. While the XZ is the only smartphone that was announced and released at the last quarter of the year. X performance smartphone isn't available in my country. With no apparent reason as to why it shouldn't be available in my country. And I know that the XZ and X performance offers 64GB of internal storage.
Note 8. Not only this s***er is a good smartphone. It offers 256GB of internal storage! What's even more is it has dual camera, has desktop experience support, wireless charging, and better audio bitrate! 32bit/384kHz. Who cares about DSEE HX if it only lowers the volume quality when watching videos on youtube or on downloaded content?
Asus Zenfone AR. This one is a real flagship killer against sony. 5.7 inch display, Daydream VR and Tango AR supported. Can offer 256GB of internal storage, DTS HD sound enhancement, and what's even more. It has a radio! Sony's flagship model XZ, XZ premium and XZ1 doesn't have a radio.
LG V30. 6 inch smartphone with a good hardware. Share's the same resemblance as the note 8. However. Unlike its other competitor. It has a certified MIL-STD-810G compliant. Which means. It's been tested thru a lot of Environmental Engineering Considerations and Laboratory Tests. And this smartphone is built for durability.
Now let me ask you. How does sony 's smartphone brands win against these oppositions?
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2017Have you used any Sony phone? Numbers don't matter too much.Man numbers matters everything especialy price.
For a same price you can get 2 maybe 3 chinese phones with same specs.
Price is only thing that matters npt many people wanna spend a lot to get a good phone.
Most of the trying to have best possible for a reasonable price.
But thats other brands not Sony or Samsung or Apple.
EducatedToad, 11 Sep 2017Actually Qnovo, is intelligent charging.... what that means sir is that when you need to charg... moreWho cares about intelligent charging? It still charges your phone slowly!
You think that I don't have evidence? Watch this video:
XZ Premium charge time: 2 hours, 40 minutes
XZ: 2 hours, 24 minutes
So how does QC 2. Charges your phone quickly if the Qnovo charging tech is also working when you're charging your phone?
sony xperia is a smartphone devices that even a months, years or decade, it remain snappy and its still not getting lag unlike Sammy that lags af after 3 mos. B-)
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 11 Sep 2017All the things you've said are all child's play!
Qnovo Battery Care, if you are in the hurry ... moreI laugh so hard of this comment LOL
bigger battery Life, lol again why would they need bigger battery life when they're has the most advanced battery in the smartphone nowadays, like sammy now using sony's battery?
bec of that note7 batt explodes
oled screen, lg has that but can they beat the sony's only 1080p HDR screen? no! and sammy amoled that reds are oranges> not even accurate pal
64gb only why would they need higher where users can expand their storage to 256Gg?
Dual Camera? i can say that's just hype, really!
sony has the most number of unique features
first in the world
3D creator app
Ali Bashir., 12 Sep 2017Lol, sony decreased the battery capacity by 200mah and the result was 14% battery life enhance... moreRight now compare this battery life to GALAXY S8's one, u can tell the XPERIA is getting better even with smaller battery
Ali Bashir., 12 Sep 2017Lol, sony decreased the battery capacity by 200mah and the result was 14% battery life enhance... moreNah, they will add more battery instead of decreasing it, in conclusion getting a better battery life. Most of the time their battery is slightly more than others but others still performed almost the same with slightly smaller battery

Guess you missed about 1 and a half year of performance testing of Xperias....
