My phone gives this pixelated display. I can clearly see the Display grid on my screen. Also, the battery is pathetic. There is no always on display, you have to push to power button in order to unlock the phone despite having fingerprint and the fingerprint sensor sucks since it works like a charm at one time and on another, it doesn't work at all.

I have been buying Z and X series for around 4 years already from Amazon, and I have no defect on my smartphones or anything, no camera distortion even on my XPERIA XZ PREMIUM. If u happen to be the unlucky one, then u are going to get the problems

xXENDER FREAKXx, 19 Oct 2017Saying of updates, I am not sure if people who is using XPERIA XZs like me will get to update ... moreI dont expect anything higher than Oreo on my X Performance, maybe some Oreo update build in 2018...
But Sony goes per SoC, meaning if your one year old XZs gets updated beyond Oreo, my X Perform will most probably too, cause they are both sd820 based.
And I believe they will update XZs beyond Oreo, cause they usually update at least 2 years.
Its one of the reasons they dont use incremental updated SoCs like sd821, or sd 836 in their devices...for better and faster update coverage of their portfolio.

I doubt XPERIA XZ will get the next ANDROID version after ANDROID OREO, well I already have some Z series that is out of updates already; XPERIA Z1 XPERIA Z2 and XPERIA Z3, which shows 2 years later there will be no more updates, maybe there will still be Security Patch Updates, idk. But I am not sure if XPERIA XZs will get because it have the same processor that is from XPERIA XZ's year, so I have some doubts that Google will have some incompatibility again or something. Can u figure it out though Tann?

Nautica77, 18 Oct 2017So have all the updates fixed all the problems?? As in WiFi, Bluetooth?Yup. WiFi and BT stability improved with .137 build. If persistant, turn SmartCleaner off, it does keep your phone clean and tidy, but usses more battery and clears system cache constantly so can produce slower multitasking and connectivity issues.
Sony's Xperia XZ Premium will receive the update to Android 8.0 Oreo in December. That's at least true for units sold in Japan, the company's home country, since that's where the information comes from. In other parts of the globe, the rollout may start sooner than that, or later. WOHOO YES!

This will improve what Sony has failed to do. Possibly for games, but sadly the screen performance will noticeably degrade, as Sony has been unable to solve this issue. and after many complaints Sony declared that they will focus on quality to improve it, lets contemplate for better mobile future.

As in WiFi, Bluetooth?
leo R, 16 Oct 2017There are bloatwares, even more than galaxy phones.
Google - docs, sheets, slide... moreYes, you are correct. Unfortunately, Sony phones have the most Bloatware. Even worse, is that this software can't be uninstalled and soon slows things down and lag and stuttering occurs.
This is quite strange as most other brands allow you to uninstall the factory bloatware.

Furthermore, the Sony already use Qnovo for it smartphone but Vaio doesn't. After Xperia had adopt Qnovo do you heard any explode news? IF NOT, why you can trolling Sony with Qnovo technology? and the iphone 8 battery swelled why you dont troll it? why Samsung Note 7 explode you dont troll it?
Ali Bashir, 18 Oct 2017As usual poor references, your fake stories aren't related with this site not even another dec... moreHere is some info for you from phonearena about Sony's ongoing camera distortion flaws.
"Users have started to complain and report a lens distortion issue with the new flagships.
Apparently, there's some trouble there. User posts on the official Sony Mobile forums as well as on XDA Developers show numerous pictures of test grids and other everyday objects that should appear straight. However, they do not. And the issue is not just around the edges of the photographs Â— there seems to be a concentric ripple effect going through the image with only the middle being perfectly straight and the other portions suffering some form of distortion.
This is unflattering to faces, as it can contribute to Â“big noseÂ” or Â“eggheadÂ” effect and is definitely not ideal for capturing simple compositions where there isn't much going on to distract the brain.
Alas, the distortion seems to be here to stay for this generation of Sony flagships. Maybe it will be fixed with the next models ?"
