Who'd have guessed it, loads of people whinging about the battery sie, of a phone before it's been properly released. Reminds me of when the S8 released it's spec & lots moaned about, how can a phone that is 0.3inch bigger, with more pixels (1440x2560 S7 v 1440x2960 S8) but have a battery that is 600mAh smaller, it'll be rubbish and I'm sticking to xxxxxx phone.
Imo let the phone release and then let the testers do the tests and the users give their feedback & we'll se what it performs like. No doubt the big brains at Sony will have thought about the pros & cons of which battery to put in it and for the sake of 300mAh less they must have thought one outweighed the other,
Another Sony phone with more power but with a battery that isn't big enough. I had the XZ the battery made it unusable so after only 4 months I replaced it with the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Increasing the power but having a weak battery is utter madness, I like Sony phones but I will not go near one until the stop the stupidity with the battery
The s835 is 25% more efficient than the 821. The battery capacity is 7% less. Do the math! Sony make refined UI. This phone will be a beast!
Jack, 07 Sep 2017Without FM radio again. Does it cost too much for only one "FM radio function"? It is so frustrated.Too bad, most of the current high-end flagships don't even offer FM RADIO anymore. If u are the person looking for FM RADIO, get mid-end smartphones then

D.L Qnovo adaptive charging and battery care features ........ You may consider.... HTC u11 or LG G6.. Sorry Nokia 8 :(.
With a 2700 mAh battery life, this phone doesn't deserve to be called a flagship Sony phone of the year, just look at the XA1 Plus a midrange which has flagship specs with 3430 mAh battery life. And the Xperia L1 which is a low range with mid range specs. What's going on with Sony, they seem to not understand the difference between low mid and high end devices. This is a gimmick trying to fool us by taking our money, stay away from Sony.

Unless you're a diehard Sony fan or crave the 3D scanning technology, I don't see why you should get the XZ1 over a Nokia 8.
Both phones have very similar specs and design. The Nokia 8 has an excellent camera and great audio. The Nokia 8 is installed with Android 7.1, but because it is stock Android expect Android 8.0 (Oreo) update to arrive quickly. The Nokia 8 should be slightly cheaper too.
However, the Nokia 8 has a 3090mAh battery, the XZ1 only has a 2700mAh battery. Stamina Mode is useless if you're actively using your phone throughout the day.
Battery life is the dealbreaker for me.
This one must have the even better on software optimisation in expected. The 3D photography is nice and use the 3D effects with AR and it is leading ahead in 3D effects achievement. The seller can use this 3D effects to show their products in 3D modelling.
[deleted post]What disadvantages??? There is nothing wrong with it.
what the fck are you doing sony small battery more big bezel ugly design again and again now tired to see this shit crappy so no more money for sony mobiles now
Ali Bashir., 06 Sep 2017Not probably, you definitely wanted to say Samsung instead of Sony XD. Samsung is as bas as Sony. Had many Sony Phones in my hands and honestly i can tell you for same price you will find everyphone much more better.
Why do this, 06 Sep 20172700 mAh is nothing for a flagship.Battery capacity is not everything buddy, it is Sony tech not Huawei ;).
salvin, 26 Aug 2017No need for a 6 GB ram in a Sony phone. 4 GB will be more than enough. No sony phone I have... moreSoon or later every phone laggs even sony. Its a shit brand its cost a lot but its a garbage for its price. Same like notbooks Sony Vaio cost too much but specs are horrible.
