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 ?"

Still don't believe, then do a Google search with "Sony 2017 battery recall"or "exploding Sony batteries" to read hundreds of complaints and thats as serious as you can get.
Here it is again, about Sony's ongoing exploding battery recalls from 2006. 15 recalls in total. This is the current recall....
Sony battery Recall date: February 7, 2017.......Recall number: 17-732
Unlike you, I don't give an opinion, I give hard facts from recognized sites. You opinion is useless here againt the USA Govt Consumer Product Safety Comission. I'm sorry if the truth upsets you so much, but my advice is to just accept the truth and just move on in life.

You made me think that instead of focusing on smartphone issues we should take care of human issues.

Your link also said Â“Best Smartphone of 2016Â” was Samsung Galaxy S7. Thats the "BEST" phone for the ENTIRE YEAR of 2016. Best phone for 2017 has NOT been given yet and you can bet that Sony will NOT receive that award.
2015 MWC Best Smartphone was Apple iPhone 6.
2014 MWC Best Smartphone was Samsung Galaxy S5.
2013 MWC Best Smartphone was HTC One.
2012 MWC Best Smartphone was Samsung Galaxy S3.
2011 MWC Best Smartphone was Samsung Galaxy S2.
Wow, incredible, Samsung has won the MWC "BEST" Smartphone of the year 4 times over the past 6 years !
Ali Bashir, 17 Oct 2017Very weird, GSMArena never mentioned any of these issues, i see often Samsung released update ... moreExactly right, thank you. Samsung quickly releases update fixs for bugs. Corrects the problems by caring for its owners. The Note 7 debacle was quickly addressed and solved by Samsung.
Sony is quite the opposite and just denies known faults. Although its 14 million exploding battery recall from 2006 is still ongoing.
The latest officall Sony recall is February 7, 2017. Recall number: 17-732

So... moreVery weird, GSMArena never mentioned any of these issues, i see often Samsung released update fix for bugs or for example Galaxy s8 users complaining about reddish display, Samsung recalling note 7 for the second time.... Sony nothing.
I think that these issues are so far from a smartphone awarded the best new smartphone at MWC 2017.
Guys, I found a possibly good solution for these 5 most common problems of this smartphone. So many people have these issues. Hope this is usefull.
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.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2017For those who have this device. Does this phone have regular updates!? Yes, definitely, I have been buying their flagships and feel very satisfied with the software updates given to these flagships, 100%. Every month there is Security Patch Updates, which I like, and also I am waiting for ANDROID OREO update to my X series smartphones, hope there will be faster updates as mentioned

Im sitting next to some girl in a bar right now while typing, shes is handling a both side broken up glass device, a certain S device with nbr 7, and swearing about it being so irritatingly slow....and that she has to buy a new device...guess she will buy a top S device again, because its futuristic I guess. They all do make the same mistake, again and again...they never learn.
Real life scenarios are just too funny.
