Sorry to say but the XZ looks much better than this compared to the screen to body ratio and obviously the price. Sony is in a hurry to launch new devices ignoring their previous so called flagships like they ignored the X and released the X Performance with some upgrade followed by the XZs which ditched the XZ (a flagship then) now the XZ1 for XZP with the new Oreo update but with shrinked battery life. I've the X and still waiting for a replacement but unable to figure out which phone to buy as they release new flagships in a jiffy with some minor updates. If I buy the XZP it would not be the latest offering from Sony but the XZ1 would be, pheww!!
It looks ugly big bezels. On screen/captive buttons are no no..

Anonymous, 01 Sep 2017Not even better than the 1.5 year old Galaxy S7, let alone the latest S8 and Note 8.Galaxy S7? Not even better than galaxy S5. Samsung fired S5 design manager as it didnt do well. I wonder what will happen to XZ1 designer.
Android Oreo is coming with full system theme support for Sony UI, while this comes with 2700 mAh, what a joke Sony is right now.

MarinoOG, 02 Sep 2017You got it all wrong i guess or you dont own Xperia XZ, hell, you dont need to own it, just re... moreActually yes I have XZ since October 2016 which came with SW3. Yes I know XZ is 3 GB RAM and 820 SD etc... and really bad device it's keep lag and struggle all the time especially when I use snapchat. But I meant what is the different between this device and the previous one ( XZP ) ?? what is the reason to launch this device if it almost the same? Moreover, there are no special software features, even small applications which was useful for me they removed it !! and by the way, I'm a huge SONY fan as all my devices are SONY brand ( ARC - S - V - Z - Z2 - Z3 - Z5P - XZ ) I have 4 SONY TVs including 55' 93D. Also 2 cameras from SONY ( HDR-CX760E - NEX-7 ). But for Xperia I know there is no real improvement :(

Anonymous, 02 Sep 2017The bezels on this phone have even grown bigger than the XZ and XZs. If you look at them close... moreTrue. I wonder why? i like xperia but honestly sony deserve all the bashing and criticizing they are getting at the moment. Am a big sony fan, true, even my family knows it, but at the moment, sony is simply acting unnecessarily stubborn. I just hope it doesn't cause bigger problems for them soon or even take there mobile down to the grave. It's just getting harder to forgive and overlook there excess chin.
Sony launch stupid smartphones with not big but with tooooo big bazels and other thing is the buttons are also on lcd screen.
and cost is very high, sony is thinking that their brand is like iphone, Samsung, Nokia. By providing this specs and service, SONY can't even stand at bottom of shit. iPhone, Samsung, Nokia are going to launch bazel less amoled display, while the sony is stuck with the bravia shit and selling at high cost without any reason.

If you look at them closely, you'll realize they're no longer symmetrical as they were in the XZ and XZs. Top bezel is larger than the bottom bezel.
XZ & XZs = 70.9%
XZ1 = 68.6%

I would really like to see sony reduce the size the bezel I'd give the phone the same screen size while reducing the overall size

XZ1 has more RAM, more integrated storage, better cpu, better gpu, better speakers and better camera than XZ

These guys aren't gonna buy sony phone no matter how much feature is in the new xperia. However as much as i admire sony's approach towards mobile phones i'd still like them to shrink them bezel a little. Not completely though cos bezels are actually good for smart phones. Just a little reduction in the upper and lower chin.
YouKnowWho, 01 Sep 2017Still better than any other AndroidNot even better than the 1.5 year old Galaxy S7, let alone the latest S8 and Note 8.
