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

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.
Anonymous, 07 May 2018If you don't care about design buy Sony XZ2.I hold the real XZ2, it looks gorgeous in real life and it really fit in hand.

Anonymous, 07 May 2018Don't forget to bring a tripod for those night shots, or you are going to be disappointed.very weird, i can take very good low light photos in hand without a tripod, unless you have a very shaky hands for some reasons, but yes, with tripod or perfect steadiness in general it can blow the all smartphones out of the water.
omnibalance looks better and more professional than samsng's edge phones.
but sadly i have to admit the current htc-inspired design is much more uglier than samsng. it looks like regular chinese phones
Anonymous, 07 May 2018Don't forget to bring a tripod for those night shots, or you are going to be disappointed.Yes, even gsmarena recommends to use a tripod with Sony phones. To get great low light photos.
Or perhaps Sony should supply a free tripod with each phone ?
