Between the sony XZ2 and LG V30... Wich one do you recommend me ?
: I Really like this phones look and specs except No FM Radio !!!
Sony finally got the screen to body ratio of the lg g3, a 4 years old phone. It can't stay on a flat surface & it is so thick that with a case it becomes a brick. The camera position is a joke.
If only xz2 stayed with the design of the xz1...
I just got it. The phone is very durable. Probably the most durable phone I have ever own. It does not bend easily. Everything is good except touch response from the screen. It doesn't seem to notice small movements like small zig-zags would appear as a straight line. I don't know how to explain but you can try it out for yourselves. Try drawing tiny loops and it would appear as a dot.
The speakers are not as loud as many phones but the sound quality is top notch. The camera does alright except for the super slo mo mode. It slo mo video in artificial lighting environment. Is that normal?

POINT IS you will never be happy with any phone...suck it up.
Anonimus, 14 May 2018Why d heck sony is the only company who always gets criticism about undying bezels, the bezels... morethe problem is that it ISNT thick enough.im a fan of bezels.better for playing games as the distance between the palm and buttons is wide.thus reducing strain on the thumb...playing mobile legends on my S9P is awful.for an hour its okay...but for 2 hours or more i would still prefer playing on my XZP which i use mostly for games now since S9P sucks for games...
saadiq2099, 12 Apr 2018I agree with you 100% sir. Sony should had to stick with their unique sharp cornered squared d... morei can live with the aspect ratio and no headphone jack.but the design is horrible.makes it look cheap.they shouldve used the omni balance design.
and look the camera is in the middle...when all this while it has been on the corner.

But how bout iphone? Dey dont have stereo speakers but their bezels are way larger than xperia, how bout google pixel? How bout htc? and nokia? U people cannot find any problem with sony phones thats why u keeps on bashing about bezels, bezels and bezels. So what now if its big? P@thetic

Two big useless bezels.
IPS LCD screen.

Sony sold its battery business to Murata.
Karim Adham , 11 May 2018Why Sony insists on weak batteries I don't know. Very bad issueMy experience is the reverse after having a number of them - Sony batteries (their own batteries) are pretty good, whether in phones or bought individually. So are LG. Sony's battery saving software also works well.

P.S. I don't have shaky hands

I hand the XZ2 lower on the base as I always use on a smartphone and it fingerprint scanner is a very nice placement on it back cover, although I still prefer side mounted fingerprint scanner like XZ. The design on paper isn't like the real one, the real one is very gorgeous and premium and sleek, you can know the design totally from Japanese styles.

Gentlemen, if you use a cover, does the smartphone remain blocked on the table or it starts spinning, please?
I hate the new design. My co-worker has one... this phone is exceptionally heavy and its roundness reminds me of an HTC. If you want a true Sony Xperia style design in 2018, the only phone offering that is the Razer Phone. If you want Xperia style side mount finger print, omnibalance design language, sleek hard angles like a true Xperia phone - only Razer offers this.
