And I'm sure it's the same for a significant amount of people too, the fact that Sony didn't care about trendy designs and held onto their own for generations. And you're totally right to go for HTC/Samsung, etc. to find whatever you're looking for, be it a fancy screen, better camera and so on. I never really cared about those, heck, I remember the days when Nokia were topping the market with 2mp cameras and they looked amazing.
Anyway, I could blame them for anything but storage speed and overall performance, however. If I were you I would check some professional measurements, I'm quite sure, in fact, that Sony is quite high up there with their read speeds and overall optimization. That's why they stuck to a smaller drive, and I can tell you they (r/w) are bloody fast even on Z5P. Could be possible Samsung have better read speeds by now, but I wouldn't bet on it. If you just want bulk storage let the SDD do its thing, unless you need a lot of 4K video recording.
As for Jack, I totally agree, it's such a letdown they removed one of their core features, that they just keep giving people more reasons not to go for their phones. The battery may be small, but the GSMA staff rated it quite high, might not be worth dismissing their take on it yet. This new Qnovo tech is quite promising, I'd get one just for that.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2018So much complain about design? Well it is just design. Performance is more important.I believe that form deals with function for any product that's why I was wondering what's the function of curved edges along screen sides that Samsung stick to it since 2005. In case of, design wise I really don't like it, besides it keeps screen too easy to break.

Anonymous, 06 Apr 20183. What are you talking about? He is talking about secure folderThe AVG app allows you to force authentication with the fingerprint reader when launching specific apps of your choosing. Its a feature of the AVG app. I can't comment on securing specific files though since I never tried.
Nor, 18 Apr 2018Some articles that this phone has a best performance in gaming.. I really like this phone.. Definitely, with the snapdragon 845 and FHD+ Display, front facing stereo speakers, and Sony software optimization, this smartphone is a gaming beast.

8man, 15 Apr 2018While I can't assure you we're a majority, I'm quite convinced a few of us actually go to Sony... moreIf they wanted to stay in the top players on the industry, you 'few people', wouldn't really matter to them. They'd go for the majority obviously. Just a bit disappointed that they have totally removed the headphone jack and they never put large batteries in their flahship. Also, their storage options are kinda smallish compared to other OEMs. Huawei flagships, Nokia, Sony, Samsung, Apple, HTC and especially Google are the only worth to buy for me.
Just tested XZ2, and about design and thickness - while holding it in hand, it doesn't feel like it's 11 mm thick (or fat, whatever),it's very comfortable to hold it, far away from slippery design - I had chance to compare it face-to-face with S8 (basicly the same as S9) and P20 pro, and the first phone I have to be careful to not drop it was P20 pro, and S8 felt more fat in hands as XZ2. anyway, design seems cool to me, just fingerprint should be higher..
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2018The heck! They just listened to what the costumers wanted them to do! I never heard of people ... moreYou are really funny. How is an HTC-like back and bar soap design like a Samsung or Apple phone? And nobody asked Sony to remove the headphone jack. If anything, blame Sony for their stupidity.
Really great and awesome phone but it's really hefty. Long time gaming on PUBG mobile your fingers start to numb out. I can play about 1 hour and my fingers hurting. Really bad downside
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2018The heck! They just listened to what the costumers wanted them to do! I never heard of people ... moreWell I'm happy with Sony Xperia a BOXY yes I do

Anonymous, 15 Apr 2018no, definitely not Xperia is designed in Japan, parts made in Japan, and assembled in Thailan... moreXZ2 parts are NOT made in Japan. Parts are sourced from numerous companies around the world. Only part made by Sony is the camera sensor and NOT made in Japan.
