I want to buy this phone but I am concerned about the speakers. If they are anything like the last Xperia phones I'll have to pass. The speakers can be drowned out by a strong gust of wind. I have yet to find a review that says if the sound is on par with any other phone link Apple or Samsung.
Top-tier screen, great materials, design and finish, high end processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage + MicroSD... but 1/2.3" image sensor with LED. Quite a contradiction since Sony produces some of the finest dedicated cameras, sensors, lenses, image processing... wonder if much larger sensor/optics, say 1" would make it more than $20 more expensive to produce.
ren122, 12 Apr 2017okay you just contradicted yourself you said most phones have gorilla 5 glass but yet you dont... moreWell, no contradictions. Like I said, There are phones that come with non Gorilla Glass screens, hence they are more prone to scratches. Like the Honor 6X, Moto Z Force, etc.
The scratch tests he does on camera lenses reveals which material it's made up of. Without his scratch tests I would've never known the Z5p had a plastic camera lens.
The bend tests? Definitely not useless. Those tests answers questions like "Will my phone bend if I put it inside my back pocket".
And I'll still say that his torture tests do give an idea about the durability of your phone. It might not be done based on real-life scenarios, but still does give an idea.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2017Don't worry. Go for Sony. Don't trust people's comments. They are probably Samsung fans.yeah right they bash sony's phones but theres nothing wrong about their phones..they always said "my sony phones was corrupted" and so on and so fort don't mind them just rust them...ok

Most phones have the same level of scratch resistance, exce... moreokay you just contradicted yourself you said most phones have gorilla 5 glass but yet you dont think its pointless to do a scratch test when everyone is using the same glass? lol.
and no, no matter what how sony would fare in this test i'd still say its pointless. Yes let me take my razor you know cuz its very likely I will end up using my razor right on top of the camera lens. Come on very stupid dude.
drop the phone from different angles and show me how it does. Scratch resistance doesn't change but impact from fall can still be different despite gorilla 5 due to structure materials of the phone.
Don't worry. Go for Sony. Don't trust people's comments. They are probably Samsung fans.
Wet dream of mine,watching Youtube in 4K on this smartphone
I dont really care about its squary form,whats inside is better :D
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2017Sony must support uses this phone as vr/ar Daydream Support in 4k HDR Res Ps 4 Vr 4K Display... moreXZp won't support Daydream, since it has a LCD display. Daydream requires an OLED display.
Sony must support uses this phone as vr/ar
Daydream Support in 4k HDR Res
Ps 4 Vr 4K Display (Same as PSVR)
ren122, 11 Apr 2017ah yeah, Im definitely going to take a razor and just start scratching my phone everywhere.
... moreCar keys? Coins? What about those? Most phones have the same level of scratch resistance, except for a few cheap phones.
And drop tests should also be pointless according to your logic. Most phones have the same GG5 glass in their phones, hence they would perform similar in drop tests.
If the XZ fared better in his durability test, you wouldn't have said the test was pointless.
after looking at all phones on the market and coming out
Sony Xperia phones still look far better than any other companies phone
ive used samsung note 2 s4 s5 s6 edge s7 edge
nokia lumia range and also lg g4 and xperia z z1
now im currently using the xperia z5 premium duo
and its the best phone ive used and seen
Surficial, 10 Apr 2017Agreed. Current xperias seem to be very resistant to cracked screens.yup even past xperias like the z3. It used dragontail which is more shatter resistant where as gorilla was more scratch resistant. as a result my z3 phone gets more scratched easily than other phones, but I see others with cracked screen all the time where as my screen has been hard to crack at all after multiple drops on floor.
Mahesh, 10 Apr 2017If this phone was released with a front flash, this could have been the best phone so far....it still is dude come on. 13mp 1/3 inch front facing camera what more do you want? still better than whatever else is being offered.
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2017Not really, the test gives an idea of the durability of your phone, and what to expect. And he... moreah yeah, Im definitely going to take a razor and just start scratching my phone everywhere.
it does absolutely nothing. he should do a drop test for every phone even if they all have gorilla glass not every phone has glass everywhere and it can still break too because of the overall structure.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2017I also wonder about this, but I heard it is even capable of 2160p@60fps which would be crucialGuys guys, before arguing about the resolution and frame rate, even the FHD 30fps takes too much memory space, so where are you going to store a video with higher resolution or frame rate.
