I think staying with 1080 screen resolution was sensible. (Among very few manufacturers)
Camera looks like an improvement. (lacking OIS perhaps)
Would've been nice to have a microSD/dual sim option, but that is ok.
Does it have an IR blaster?
I'm only concerned with the android update cadence.
G¤¤G&i, 27 Sep 2016Design is worse then mi 5 and very thick then mi 5 about 1mm but i forget everything when its ... moreIt comes with OIS and its clear.. As far as AMOLED is concerned, amoled has been the ugliest tech on display. It affects eyes, gives over saturated colors, looks unnatural. We must work on to improve LCD tech. as there has never been and will be a better eye soothing thec.

Tourettes Guy, 27 Sep 2016Omg a copycat lover! At least the XZ's design is original and unique. I asked all of my friend... moreTotally agree on SONY design. They never copy. They are very original and different.
Design wise I respect - SONY,MOTOROLA, BLACKBERRY (exclude dtek 50,60),APPLE, NOKIA.
8.3mm. Too thick. Also no SD card. Ugly antenna lines at the back.
AnonD-588287, 27 Sep 2016where is 3d/force touch confirmation from Xiaomi ???force touch available for MI 5S 4GB/128GB version
AnonD-559686, 27 Sep 2016No phone uglier than XZ, bcz XZ is the ugliest and cheapest with plasstic and low specs. Th... moreOmg a copycat lover! At least the XZ's design is original and unique. I asked all of my friends about the design of the XZ and they all said it was beautiful in every color. Meanwhile, I asked the same people about the design of this phone and their first thought is that it was an iPhone clone. Just because the phone is better than this doesn't mean you have to hate it. You can troll somewhere else but not Sony. And plastic? Lol you know nothing about the design of the XZ. It has Alkaleido metal on the back which is twice as durable as a standard metal. What about this Mi5s? Plastic cheap metal and glass that cracks, breaks, and scratches easily? What a poor man you are, can only afford clone phones
