I think their design language is still nice but what I don't get is, is it really that hard for them to even reduce the bezel by a bit? It would look a lot nicer if they can reduce the bezels by a bit (doesn't have to be super thin bezels). Keeping the same old design but without changing the bezels (even slightly bigger now) looks really boring.. When I clicked in to see a list of sony phones in gsmarena, all I see are the same phones over and over.. and it's really hard to tell the differences... I guess Sony is not putting much efforts into competing with others..
I just don't understand why Sony isn't using OIS and a wider aperture for better low light photos, still using f/2.0, it should be replaced by f/1.7 or f/1.6, and they should get a new lens as well, they're using the same lens since the first Xperia Z. The camera software image processing should also be improved and add a RAW capture option, enable normal burst mode. So many things that Sony can improve on the camera but they're not doing anything.
2700mAh when Samsung and LG move up beyond 3000mAh. Shame...
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017CEO needs to resign, someone put up a petition and have him sacked. I totally agree, he's name is Kaz hirai only been Sony CEO for 5 years, time for him to go.
For years sony ruining phones: Sony people want smaller bezels and bigger batteries. How come don't you get this?
Ill still stick to my XZP...doesnt seem better than the XZP in any way...
: Wow optical image stabilization for video only. That just sucks and is really stupid, come on Sony this supposed to be the next flagship phone !!!

GT, 31 Aug 2017Sony produces most ugliest phones with even uglier UI. Who will buy this? Are you blind???
Sony battery look like Apple battery. Maybe it has small capacity, but, my experience use sony xperia XA1 with just 2300mAh battery. It can survive for 5-6 hours screen on time. It's amazing I think.

Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017There's no way I'd pay $799 for a phone with 2700 mAh battery life. Imagine how much the batte... moreDo not under estimate bro, I'm xperia XA1 user. And you know what? with 2300 mAh, I got 5-6 hours screen on time daily use, gaming and social media.
LS jay, 31 Aug 2017I love Sony but why Sony still making old model phone .it should change on design and performa... moreSony bezels looks gorgeous in my opinion, probably the most underrated company which has unique design compared to its rivals. If all brands had bezel less display, then consumers would boycott the design because of limited choices of phone design preference, and comparing flagship phones between another would look identical and overrated, there has to be variety.
XtremE16, 31 Aug 2017Over all its better than nokia 8 and Iphone 7.. Oh yeah it is but the price will ruin all.
Everything is great except design. I own xperia Xa and it's sexier than this one. It looks just as previous one, too boxy. But still what I love about sony is its easy to use, fits just right in the hand and durability.
