I belong to that neglected demographic people who love the small dimension phone factor like the same who love the iPhone 5 . I hate big screen televisions in my pockets anything wider than 62mm phone cannot hold in one hand . I love to use a phone with one hand . my hand are so tiny like Donald trump hands and there is a billion sorry two billions Asian with tiny hands like mother Theresa . The Sony " miniature " " compact " " out of fashion " size phone is basically the same size as the most sought out and popular phone in the world the iPhone 8 . the Sony leave the iPhone 8 in the dust . people don't know that Sony phones are exist
Thicker more durable, slimmer more fragile, this is common sense. The slimmer phone must wear on a protector case which will become thicker too, so why not just take a phone without the protector case?
initially I don't like the design (still dont like the design)
but its really comfy in my hand, unlike xz1c the edge is really uncomfy,
I had to choose between xz1c and xzc2, I chose neither becoz of low storage in xz1c, and no headphone jack in xz2c
xzc will be perfect if it got headphone jack, altho it is fugly, but I accept it as it is so comfortable to hold
I guess ima stay with my huawei nova caz al10 for a long time.
Honestly, I hate this new design, reminds of of an HTC. The only current phone on the market with the classic Xperia design is the Razer Phone. If I want a new Sony style phone, ill be getting the Razer.
Got this phone and it is amazing. Looks much better than its two predecessors (XC and XZ1C) with the ugly "Loop Surface" design on photos, and even better than that in real life. Has a distinguishable Sony design.
It's snappy, the camera is awesome, it is comfortable to use and the battery lasted all day yesterday (which is something I haven't seen in flagship phones for a long time). What else is needed?
Well, I'd appreciate it having a minijack and a fingerprint scanner on its side, but nothing's perfect.
Hey SONY...... If u don't know how to design just search in Google images.... type XPERIA CONCEPT PHONES.....ok!! don't release stupid designed phones...!
24-bit/192kHz internal audio DAC, with NO headphone jack to be able to listen to it.
This.. is actually retarded :-|
(For those who don't know: wireless headphones, have their own (crappy) little DACs inside them, and don't use the DAC inside the phone.
So the only way you're gonna listen to that Hi-Res / High Fidelity Audio DAC, will be through the built-in speakers)
batman, 08 Apr 2018Really awesome specifications but worst design ever from sony Xperia Z still better than this ... moreBecause normal people are tired of wafer-thin phones that are like trying to pick up a razor blade by it's edges every time you lift it off the table.
Outside of a few spec fans boys whose heads are buried in their phones 23.5 of 24 hours a day, who actually just "has to have" a bezel-less phone? I mean really, is a 2 or 3mm bezel a real deal breaker? If so, you need to get a life kids.
I want to buy this phone. So what is stopping me? Lack of 3.5mm jack. Somewhat crazy for a company, which develops wired headphones.
This phone does not have an FM Radio. Whilst internet radio is great, but it eats up data and I always end up with steaming issues.
Sony could have added a DAB radio, which would have given them a USP.
I am no fan of wireless technology. There is a risk from radiation emmisions. So mobile signals, Wifi, Bluetooth, yes the risks are low, but are surrounded by the stuff. Do we trust the industry to carry out proper research? In past the cigarette industry, told us smoking was not dangerous to health. Over, time we will know the answer.
I also turn off my phone's Wifi and my Wifi router at home. I only turn on when needed to reduce risk both to me and my neighbhoors. Your Wifi signals go into your neighbours homes.
Strange, as much as I want to dislike this phone, I actually kind of like it. And having played around with it, the speed/performance of the phone is incredible and feeling in hand is also great (aside from perhaps FPS being a bit low). I've had the opposite experience with many other phones, really wanted to like them but just couldn't for one reason or another after actually using them.
Ugliest design in Xperia history..... very undesirable, thick, impractical! The last generation seem to be better than this one.
And Holy shet!!! Sony engineer still unable to ditch the bezels.
why there is insist on curved body and edges and rear mounted fingerprint??? I think flat body make these size of devices much beautiful
A compact phone that weights 168g. Hmm... then it should be called XZ2 Dense instead.
voltaire9, 17 Apr 2018Haven't seen a smartphone this thick in a while.WowThe thick on center should have more and more durable than cheap curved screen corners, especially the anti-twist metal frame will keep the phone sturdy.
