I see why Sony can't even change their outdated UI, because they used LCDs display which is good with whites but bad for your eyes, whereas blacks will cause battery drain. Only if Sony used AMOLED display then blacks would be good for battery power consumption.
ALPHABOY17, 12 Jan 2018Can someone who has bought this phone tell me how is the phone in daily usage? Battery life, s... moreDaily usage for battery life is just average for me, don't get me wrong, because I use my smartphones moderately, like playing games for 30mins, watching YouTube for 30mins and sometimes on standby so yeah, but it still can last me a day till 7pm everyday. Comparing this battery life with my XPERIA XZ with ANDROID OREO too, this does have better battery life than XPERIA XZ, and I am kind of happy with that. Speaker quality for other people have mixed feelings about it, for me I think it is around the more than average mark for me. Their front facing speaker have good clarity, but for their loudness...I have different feelings with it. In places like a food centre where it is very noisy, u are unable to hear anything even with maximum volume, my friend's SAMSUNG GALAXY S8 is able to blast out sound at such a noisy place with maximum volume. Yes, I know it is not the loudest speakers out there, but u will be pleased by the clarity and bass if u are in a quiet place, what I like about the speakers most is when u are in a quiet place, hearing music with the speakers is perfect for me. Display quality is sharp for me already, even though it is only FHD at high-end flagship level. One reason why I buy their Z and X high-end flagship series smartphones for years already is the display, it may not have vibrant colors like AMOLED, but, I chose natural colours over vibrant colors. Performance is top notch, no surprise since it is the most powerful processor from Qualcomm. UI there is only one word to describe, "Simplistic". There are a lot out of people out there who want a more customizable UI, but a near to stock UI is best for me, my Z series flagships are still snappy now, even though the performance may not be the same as day one, same goes to my newest X series high-end flagship collection XPERIA XZ1. Camera please don't expect much in low-light situations, it takes excellent photos with Superior Auto in daylight, but struggles in some low-light situations. It can take excellent photos if u are taking lights in low-light, but for scenery try to take it at daylight. I am very sure the price of XPERIA XZ1 is a lot cheaper than the time I bought it, so if u are willing to accept it's struggle in low-light then it is for u

Anonymous, 11 Jan 2018I love using sony and one of its big fans. Unfortunately, I can't get this phone in my country... moreI have XA1 and it doesnt overheat, either you bought it from a shady seller giving you a 2nd hand defective phone or you're just trolling....
Sony has improved cooling system since they introduced Heat Pipes on the Z5 series with SD810 w/c was the only SoC that had heating issues....
And if you're not trolling return that defective fake XA1 to your shady seller and buy from Amazon/other reputable sources.
I love using sony and one of its big fans. Unfortunately, I can't get this phone in my country anymore due to regulation issue that sony have not fulfilled yet. So, I buy my xperia xa1 from online store and it has heat problem. I'd like to ask to xz1 users whether this phone also has heat problem or not? Thanks for your help
i think i have found a perfect (almost) ldac receiver which has designed to run both balanced armatures and dynamic drivers earphones, as has sabre chip, ideal for walkman nw-zx100, nw-zx300, nw-a40, nw-wm1a, but also works on xperia z4, z5/5p/5c, x performance, xz, xzs, xzp/xz1/xz1c
for almost audiophile wireless experience, shame that the audio technica at-pha55bt only available in japan so far

Anonymous, 09 Jan 2018sony never make any usable things, dear mr heatpipe. 960fps but only 0.2 second, useless head ... moreThe 960p super slow motion video can highlight for a short footage, it for a moment highlights not a whole life highlights. The Moments highlight is short with plenty of detail in a motion.
The 3D Creator can apply to the AR and it has 4 types scanning methods: face scan, head scan, food scan, freeform scan. face, head, food scan. If you don't like scan head you can scan face, food and also freeform into 3D object files.

mohamed arafat, 07 Jan 2018Xperia xz1 or galaxy s8 and why? If the bezels are no issue for you and you can go with the design of both, then definitely the xz1 is better in all aspects.
mohamed arafat, 07 Jan 2018Xperia xz1 or galaxy s8 and why? Stability, durability and longevity xperia xz1
