Rameyuk, 27 Feb 2017My ideal Sony Xperia smartphone:

Z2 & Z5 Premium speaker plac... more*All specs like the XZ Premium
* 5.2" Screen because anything bigger than that doesn't fit in my palm and my thumb is having trouble navigating through the screen. My Z2 and Z3 was perfectly sized for my palm.
My ideal Sony Xperia smartphone:
Snapdragon flagship chip
Z2 & Z5 Premium speaker placement
Z2 LED notification light placement
All specs and like the XZ Premium
with 5.2" 4K HDR OLED Screen
Glass body material, not shiny metal.
(Affordable price, of course)
If Sony can make it happen, then Sony can shut up and take my money.
Old processor, small battery, $700 price tag.
Someone from management should get fired.
This likely will be my next phone. From x2 to XZs. Well kinda makes sense. I'm not a fan of the 4K screen, so this is just perfect!
this is what the x performance should have been from the start is is literally money gauging your consumer not once but three times in a round you can't get any worse than this
You forgot to say that your beautiful Snapdragon 820 after 10 minutes is hot enough you can boil eggs with ham on your phone. Also a 2900 battery means charging each day on high usage twice a day.
USB 2.0 is not that bad but you are correct it should have usb-c type.
No Leica camera like in huawei top mobile and i guarantee you a side mounted fingerprint sensor will be biggest mistake in this phone.
Also the price will be problem. Like everything from sony cost 50% more because of Sony. Simmilar to apple. Same phone with same specs from oneplus company for example would cost maybe 300 eur. This will reach maybe 700 or more as brand new.
Rest look fine.
Rob, 27 Feb 2017Why the 1080p screen? I personally think that 1080p is still good for a screen this size. Plus it won't tax the processor and the battery as hard as a 4K screen or 1440p would. I'd rather take the extra headroom i can get from the processor. I do the same thing on my desktop. 27in 4K but i scale it back to 1440p for the extra thermal and power draw headroom i can get from my 980Ti. Still looks great imo
This phone is very similar to Sony Xperia XZ, but that's not a bad thing, XZ being a great phone. To start. it has a beautiful side-bezelless design with a great 5.2" IPS Triluminos FullHD display with X-Reality Engine image and video enhancer, Android Nougat, the classic Snapdragon 820 beast(not 835 because Samsung grabbed all of them till may) with 32 storage and 4GB RAM(XZ has 3GB), a new 19MP OIS(we were waiting for ages for OIS, a round of clapps to Sony) with phase+laser autofocus 1/2.3"(probably with the new 1GB of RAM stacked in sensor design, the first kind in the world, which can capture incredible 720p@960fps slow-motion video, the best on market) and a great selfie camera 13MP autofocus 1/3"(the main camera on Motorola Moto Z), Hi-res DAC 24-bit/192kHz with great stereo speakers. The single con would be the old microUSB v2.0 instead of USB-C(what an irony,XZ has USB-C. It would have been too much to ask for a perfect phone, Sony? it costs that much to skip it on a phone this good?). All in all a great value flaship which will be against Samsung Galaxy S7, Oneplus 3/3T, HTC 10, LG G6. I recommend it instead of the competition for its better cameras.
