Anonymous, 10 Apr 2017So according to you S7 is just a S6 with microsd and waterproofing. Well, that's just dumb. S7... moreSamsung do major update at odd version ex: s1-s3-s5-s7 the even is just minor update take look at the spec sheet, s6-s7 may a major update but looks s7-s8 only procie and bezel cut and for design they keep the design language since original galaxy s and xperia z series, this same goes for sony but sony update is more random like z1-z2 major update inc new screen,speaker,procie,camera sw&iq, to z3 design and camera iq and minor procie, to z3+ its minor though and z5 is major then to the xz major again xzs middle major, but the performance effect is great though however the minor upgrade are l, even my father z1 whos almost 4 year still no prob and run like champ
Carlos, 10 Apr 2017Ugly design, Sony is using the same design from the Z1, so the sales are so bad.Same goes with Samsung and Apple, nothing innovative just the same old pre-historic design, except for the screen size, just look at the horrid design of S8, looks like a tall bald guy.
Speedy, 10 Apr 2017Good advise for my next phone? Got a 3 year old Z1c. Can't decide between XZs S7 P10 G6If you are used to, and want smaller phone again Z5 compact could be one for you..really fast, nice phone and screen is slightly bigger than Z1 compact but physical dimensions are very much the same, so it's nice to use in one hand.
If you want bigger screen, maybe XZs then? That also is then somehow familiar if you jump from Z1 compact to newer phone..
Phone is anything but gorgeous looking and now (one of the) fastest out there.
But only you know what you need, like or really want?
Carlos, 10 Apr 2017Ugly design, Sony is using the same design from the Z1, so the sales are so bad.Many others are saying otherwise, design is elegant and stylish, not one of the millions soap pieces.
Beautiful elegant timeless design. I'm gonna puke if I see another soap design phones..This square design with round edges is reminiscent like old Nokia N9, is just stunning look!
Sony keep up the style and elegance, don't ever change and look like any other soap piece.. Thank you Sony!
george, 10 Apr 2017of course it's faster its running on a fhd screen the others are on qhd Screen res has nothing to do with read/write memory speeds, app opening time, web browsing speed or multitasking.

Anonymous, 10 Apr 2017Z2 : SD801, 3gb , 16gb, 20.7 /2.2
Z3: SD801, 3gb, 16/32gb, 20.7 /2.2
Z4: SD810, 3gb, 32gb,... moreSo according to you S7 is just a S6 with microsd and waterproofing. Well, that's just dumb. S7 has a faster processor, more RAM, better camera, better battery, design, etc.. The jump from S6 to S7 is bigger than the differences between Z5 and XZ.
And the LG G6 is a massive upgrade over the G5 in all aspects.

george, 10 Apr 2017of course it's faster its running on a fhd screen the others are on qhd There's no point of having a QHD screen in a screen under 5.5", VR is not a reason since it still pixelated, 4K is valid for VR, the only reason to have QHD is because the inferior Pentile matrix as oppose to RGB matrix.
There are lots of compromises on my X Compact, I hope the XZ Compact will be no compromise.
XZs is faster than many other flagship phones. Go to YouTube and watch yourself. Sony is my favourite. I won't buy other crap phone.
AnonD-624913, 06 Apr 2017SONY please stop making smart phones!!
Same phones since Xperia Z2
1) same design
2) same ... moreZ2 : SD801, 3gb , 16gb, 20.7 /2.2
Z3: SD801, 3gb, 16/32gb, 20.7 /2.2
Z4: SD810, 3gb, 32gb, 20.7 /5.1
Z5 : SD810, 3gb, 32gb, 23mp/5.1
XZ: SD820, 3gb, 32/64 gb, 23mp/ 13mp
XZs: SD820, 4gb, 32/64gb, 19/13 mp
There are differences.
Display can be the same 5,2" full hd , but every phone has its own level of contrast and brightness. Colors are different too.
Cam was used from z1 to z4 but software is not the same.
Z4 and z5 have faster memory than z2/z3, also flapless usb
Speakers have different levels of loudness. And quality was improved.
Lets see others...
LG : G3 has issues, motherboard.. Screen goes black. It happens because of heat. G4 has burn in and bootloop. Same for v10 and G5.
Samsung: s7 is a s6 plus micro sd and waterproofing. Edge screen is useless, it is just cool.
So... If you see, no OEM has been doing different lately
I'd rather see a smaller phone 16:9 than a big screen 2:1. I do not want almost 20% of screen to go black when I watch videos.
only name SONY is enough .. sony has never compromise with quality.. and its standards.. and thats why it has very high rated name .. i must say world will get most advance mobile in feature .. salute to SONY ,, love you ..
Surficial, 09 Apr 2017And the lack of grain in the images.automode, 3200 ISO with grain:
manual, 1600 ISO, barely grain:
manual, 160 ISO, grain? :
As anyone can see, lowlight automode 3200 ISO is ok, but manual results with less iso are much, much better.
Surficial, 09 Apr 2017And the lack of grain in the images.I love sony
This should've what the XZ should be, eitherway this is like Z3+ to Z5(better cam).
