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.
It will probably be added at a later stage
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)

J Nar, 05 Sep 2017if it can be 7mm like z3+ it will be perfect.Its about 0.5 mm thicker only, you can't even notice it.
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.
Ace, 04 Sep 2017Top & bottom sides are also metal right?Yes. It's all metal now. I like this phone for looks alone.
I'm liking the design of this phone. Aluminium unibody. No more plastic frame. I have to admit. It looks more premium than my S7.
all the features like, first to do 4k, first to slowmo, n now 3d scan. Well all these firsts its still not like how u imagine it would be, theres just still much inconvience. all the cons when using features makes me never care to actually use it. It has to be more down the road to reduce all the cons. example like slowmo, advertisment make it seem woww, using it n well gotta time it right, n jus like 2 or 3 seconds. Were not makin movie, take 1, take 2. were wantin to catch a natural moment. vacations or pranks.
Another phone that is thinner and has less battery than their predecessor.
Slash89, 02 Sep 2017Sorry to say but the XZ looks much better than this compared to the screen to body ratio and o... moreScreen to body ratio is almost the same, if not slightly better with the XZ. Personally I think the XZ1 looks more refined than the XZ: no more ugly plastic at the rear panel, no more plastics at the side, slightly more curved sides. Also, the NFC scanner is finally placed at a reasonable place. They should have made the bezels smaller..
