What would make your ideal Sony Xperia smartphone?

Sony Xperia logoIt’s always nice to dream once in a while. Sony Mobile will announce new hardware at MWC in Barcelona next month, with strong bets on the launch of the Sony D6503 Sirius smartphone. At this stage we can’t be sure of what strategy Sony plans to adopt in 2014 and whether we’ll see another flagship in H2, but there is no doubt that every fan has their own wish list.

So we wanted to ask you the question – what spec sheet would you ideally like to see in Sony’s next Xperia flagship? What would be your ideal display size and screen tech? How much storage space? What design would you like to see? Omnibalance or arc or something else? How about the camera sensor? We imagine OIS would feature in many lists. We’d love to hear your thoughts below.

  • Ilya Panasenko

    Xperia Z1 Compact dual – that’s what I want

  • roeshak

    Well for me, it’s pretty simple really. Anything but another Z1 variation with a camera that’s got a larger sensor and OIS naturally lol!

  • Roy

    A xenon flash and a high-resolution whitemagic display would be really awesome imo.

  • DrKrFfXx

    5-5.2″ IPS Panel.

    Latest hardware available.

    Walkman sound chip.

    Kit Kat

    Ditch the on-the-shatterproof-Sony logo.

    Keep the great mobile camera path.

    Keep water resistance.

  • Makiz

    The best camera, display, latest software, small bezels and awesome build quality :P
    That’s what I’m waiting from Sony since the Xperia X10 era

  • Phat-t

    Two flagship models a year, one with the Omnibalance design and the Arc design!

  • Raddad Radaideh

    5.2 display 805 cpu 3 gb ram 32 gb memorey 20 or 23 camera with xzenon flash and water proof

  • Alaa

    Xperia Z2

    With :

    Cyber-Shot ( like Sony Ericsson C905 )
    Xenon + LED Flsah
    32 or 64 memory
    5 inch – like Xperia ZL
    Xperia Logo with a light ( like Xperia TX )
    OLED or like iPHone 5S display

  • Felix

    Actually stick with ips.

    apps to sd

    16:9 20 mp shots

    improved camera algorithm


    larger battery

  • Vasco Gervasi

    Fully compatible with AOSP.

  • ShinOrochiX

    Design: Similar to Xperia E1Screen: 4.5 inch (720p display)
    Processor: 1.5Ghz dual-core
    RAM: 1GB
    Camera: 8MP (HD, 8MP 16:9)

    Android: 4.4 (obviously)
    Network: 2G/3G/4G + Wi-Fi
    Battery: 2000mAh (removable)

    Not asking for much, probably the successor to the Xperia SP? IDK…

    ALSO: <£250 price tag… ;-)

  • ???????

    I want to buy really expensive phone but I want Sony support it not 1-2 years like now but longer, 5 for instance. New updates, improvement not only for new but for old phones. Like iPhone has updates even if owner has bought it several years ago. This is a problem of Sony, you have quality, but with speed is worse.

  • karamelakimo

    Same design and material in Z or can be replaced by Aluminium as SP

    For display i Liked Triluminons but need to calibrate display only for brighter display
    never use oversaturated oled display it’s only gr8 with mobile UI but not for movies
    may be 4.5-5 inch is enough with 2k resolution and high ppi

    Better shutter proof screen protector or use glass can resist scratches

    i wish a sound master ship as in walkman..we want the real walkman back

    Snapdragon last hardware as i heared 805 with 2.3 or higher 2.5 will be great 64 bit if can be done

    3 or 4 GB of ram :D

    Include new useful software as we heared in kitkat of sony as smart call handling and smart backlight display

    camera 20 MP with exmor and bionz is great but must improve the processing of snaps with stronger flash led or i wish zenon that’s would be great ;)

    Battery 3000mAH at least

    and must be water and dust proof ;)

    P.S: I’m Happy with my Xperia Z
    wish the best for sony :D

  • hamody

    Snapdragon 805
    shake control(like xperia 1) to change music and photos
    4K display IPS with great viewing angles
    Better sensor for camera and better lens
    Better multitasking like note 3
    Same design of z1

  • cristian

    Make a phone version of the sony walkman zx1 with the same size as the xperia Z , same material that they use in zx1 and put a hardware button On it .1080 display with 5.2 inch IPS is enough . 3gigs of ram for better experience , snapdragon 800 chipset , a better camera and sound . Long lasting battery life , 32gigs of internal plus SD card , water proof , 3.2mp front camera :D , dont bake the sony logo on the shatter proof film , make it glow just like the one on the xperia Tx / gx .

  • Sami Mrabet

    The Z1 compact is my dream phone! but if it was fully metal it would be perfect!

  • ZXcorr

    Z1 Compact is the almost-perfect phone. It would be THE perfect phone for me if it’s slightly thinner, less bezels, optical image stabilization and better speakers (stereo speakers that sound like iPad Air’s. Haha).

  • Maulana Yusuf

  • Lukas

    How about Xperia Z1 compact with more battery less bezel and less place top and down

    The power button has to be changed it is to obvious and I would like it too be more casual

    And most important update cycle for flag ships like Samsung has (at least 2-3 years)

    Would be happy with that

  • faruzzi

    The Z1 but with:
    -dual front facing stereo speakers
    -Walkman sound chip
    -Walkman button(like E1)
    -saphire glass on front and back
    -IPS display
    -Z ultra like display sensitivity(can use pen as stylus)
    -3 gigs of ram
    -Snapdargon 805
    -bigger battery
    -OIS and Xenon flash
    -USB 3.0
    -micro HDMI output
    -Android kitkat


    A PlayStation/ Xperia Play phone with the upgradable/ interchangeable screen, processor, speakers, camera etc… That would be ideal because you could always keep your specs current.

  • TheHugeOne

    I just wanted HUGE bezels, the biggest bezel ever seen on smartphone! Please Sony! Please make it real!! :3


  • zcrx

    a new premium design

  • TheHugeOne

    And huge bezels, awesome!

  • Ed Weston

    I just purchased the Z Ultra GPE in December and honestly have never been happier with a phone. 5 iPhones and 2 Samsungs, and I have found a phone I love. I like the large display (personal preference) , and how thin it is makes it easy to use, so for the next flagship or update to mine, I would wish for more internal storage on either, a flash on my model and better camera. Thinner top and bottom bezels. More substantial water resistant port covers. A better speaker setup like HTC One. I want to thank Sony, I sure love this phone.

  • mido

    Please sony do not use soft key in xperia phones

  • izzet karahancer

    5.2 inch display with good view angles,nvidua k1 processor,3gb ram,32gb internal sd+sdcard support,glass back but with smaller bezels and slightly curved like galaxy nexus,qwhd 2k screen,dual boot android and ubuntu touch

  • jose

    waterproof usb will be awesome… maybe i will add xenon flash

  • TheHugeOne

    Less bezel? Noooo! I wanted more bigger than Z1, that would be perfect!

  • David Jay

    To be honest all I would like is the Xperia Z1 compact as a Google Play Edition. I don’t think that Sony can keep up with the demands of software updates but I love their build quality. I’m speak from experience owning the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 which was a great device but was hampered by late software. When Sony dropped the Ericsson from their name I thought they would treat customers better so I got the Xperia S (my current device). Great device again but shelved at 4.1.2 with bugs and no news of an update.
    Google Play Edition or a Sony Nexus phone, basically as long as the software is separate then I’m in.

  • AA

    Basically want an upgraded Z1 Compact with
    1) better cameras (not necessarily more pixels) with optimized software on release date
    2) a new gorgeous design that brings back illumination bar
    3) excellent and natural color reproduction on IPS panel
    4) front bazel color matches with back (eg. if the handset is red, it is red on the front as well, not just the back)
    5) walkman sound chip. now this is something that competitors can’t compete
    6) more RAM
    7) 4.3″ with 720p is just fine for me. don’t want anything bigger
    8) better speakers

  • sony fan

    Totally agree! Most xperia phones have a nice design and good hardware, but they lack of fast updates or updates never show up like xperia s. If sony really wants to get more phones in the street they have to improve their sofware. It’s not okay to wait months for an android version that isn’t the most recent or to get a phone with a regular camera performance when you paid a lot for it (Xperia z1, I know that now it’s good but maybe it would’ve sold many more devices if camera performance were good since it hit stores)

  • mustafa

    7.5-7.9mm thickness, almost bezeless screen (I like a bit of bezel) 3500mah, dual flash, hopefully non covered charging port, a 2k screen, snapdragon 805, 3gb ram, 32gb rom, dual speaker, and keeping the omnibalance design, plus the stuff the guy above mentioned

  • Weh

    My ideal Sony Xperia smartphone is something like JARVIS and also has a high end hardware

  • Najip Yahya

    i xperia for gaming and music, also for surfing internet,

  • Alexandros Patikas Papadopoulo

    Arc design and for the rest.. Sony knows better!!

  • Antonio Sevillano

    My ideal Xperia is NOT A PHONE, IS A SERVICE.

    Since a new model is available on stores,

  • Denislav Popov

    Nice focus on camera features, I’d add Snapdragon 805 + Adreno 400, probably a larger screen but only if it can be put into z1’s frame. Also Ir blaster and glove mode would be a nice add-on.

    Sony Mobile is doing extremely good. In my opinion you guys are number 1
    Having said that I realised Sony is not trying any “different” designs anymore like it used to.
    For example in my opinion Sony Ericsson xperia mini pro was the ultimate design !
    It had touch screen and physical keyboard that awarded “red dot design award” (Seriously that keyboard was so practical , well build and well designed)
    The phone was small
    It was artisticly designed
    It had “home” button that is extremely quality and well designed
    Its “back” and “setting” tocuh buttons was illuminating perfectly
    I know these kind of bold designed phones might not get you sales like xperia Z cause they are small and designed differently but Sony you are great for taking risks and designing new things. Remember your old phones ? Before touchscrenn came along they were all different from each other.
    Please please try new things… Almost every phone company making similar designs after touchscrenn came along. Dont be one of them =)

  • Michael Felton

    i want a sapphire shattter/scratch proof glass and a better screen, and anything above a s4pro processor. thats it really.
    XPERIA Z is the dream phone i have wanted FOREVER. i waited sooo many years for the perfect phone for me and this xperia z is perfect for me. i used to drool for the xperia z1 but the z1 is totally useless and unwarranted for xperia z owners. that s4 pro processor is showing NO SIGNS of obsolescence yet and neither is anything else about it. i do want a z2 but it will be REALLY DIFFICULT for me to justify upgrading to it because the xperia z is so cool. i bet dat 2k screen and new snapdragon will push me to it though.

    I prefer an arc kind of design but with curving back glass panel.

  • Colby Leong

    All-around sapphire glass…
    +1 to the great camera tech
    would be really cool if they could make that could withstand seawater without rusting and dying.
    bigger better battery

  • Colby Leong

    I think that could be more closer, hopefully whatever they did to make there Core USB port water-resistant they can do with the successors of the Z1.

  • Colby Leong

    +1 for the smudge-proof
    I agree on everything else, I can’t really care for a 4K screen, maybe an improved battery life

  • Daniel Dorestant

    Vita OS
    Good battery life

    Branded as a Playstation phone

  • Colby Leong

    so a heavily PlayStation integrated phone… I could see that, mainly for the real phone gamer.

  • Daniel Dorestant

    Honestly I would want it to be more of a gaming device, with the phone stuff just being an added feature lol

  • Colby Leong

    so a Vita that can make calls, sounds interesting. Not a flagship phone, but definitely a successor to the Xperia Play

  • Daniel Dorestant

    Pretty much,….

    a more pocket friendly Vita, that makes calls lol

  • Ahsan Waheed

    I want sony to make a perfect mobile without any disadvantages, like im using Xperia Z Ultra brilliant smartphone like no other but external speaker sound quality too low, no camera flash, battery timing is ok but only in standby mode if I want to use my mobile with its every features then the battery won’t last long. So, Sony is best in designs best in quality best in sound with ealkman best with camera but everytime they leave some weakness in their smartphones. So fix it up and best of luck for future.

    Hi everybody,

    Please sign my petition to get a move apps to sd card feature on xperia devices just the way samsung has offered on their devices since may! I will really be a boon for people especially with 4GB and 8GB internals!


    Also please share this with everyone you know!

  • Billy de Fretes

    if post processing image in xperia phone have the same quality with cybershoot pocket camera and dedicated sound chip then it wil be enough for me. i love my xperia z but image quality not good enough (if taken with superior auto) and sound quality (using IEM) below average.

  • hansip

    Nah below 4 inch is too small nowadays. Too many content to be viewed on a phone that 4.3 is almost the minimum now.

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    ignore this petition and just download sandisk memory zone, works with all sd cards too

  • DStyle

    I think it’s going to be a Windows Phone. Sony must be crazy 4to come out with another Android flagship after launching Z1 in Q4 2013.

  • santosh khatiwada

    I’m using Xperia z1 at this time I’m pretty sure that it has great features than other phones because of this.
    -Unique features is dust proof/water proof.
    _High range processors.
    -Great camera.
    -User friendly android os.
    -Omni balance design and both sides glass makes phone sexy.
    -And some great apps from Sony.

    Besides this what expect from upcoming device are.
    Try to make unique from other android phone cause if every phone looks same where is Uniqueness of Sony like it besides android it has separate Walkman, movie, albums, track id apps those are Owesome and it doesn’t feels like general android phone but Sony. I mean that user must experience sonyness.
    hardware Must be Higher than other phones.
    Great camera, greet design, and should have 64 bit processor. And comparatively high ram and memory.

    how about a xperia play successor with:

  • Mohammad Bader Qawasmeh

    so , I changed from xperia s to xperia z to z1 and now to iphone 5 ,

    I really hate apple as a company but I must admit i found the iphone 5 most comfortable smart phone till now , and that what I need in next xperia to come back to my lovely brand SONY ,

    1.the worst thing in xperia the glass or screen protector from factor that make the screen look oily and cheep compare to samsung or apple phone .

    2.xperia series have the worst wireless signal in all brands (may this because the waterproof and the material but i don’t care about these features )

    3.they are very heavy compare to iphone and has edge square design which make them not comfortable in hand

    4.the speaker in iphone is much much better and louder(clearer) than any xperia.

    5.nice move from sony to introduce xperia z1 compact but it’s enough to get 13 megapixel with good quality picture(instead in 21 megapixel) with I found my iphone 8 megapixel take much better photo in low light ????? and have slimmer design and lighter phone . I will not change my iphone to this because in some review I read that it’s used the same stupid oily screen.

    6. the specification on paper not every thing for high-end company ,you can get chines phone with top specs but not that what we waiting from SONY, we want attention for every small details and the main phone function (like speaker,ear-peace sound,screen ,signal …etc) .

    my dream phone would be a new ZL. A compact, with 4.55-4.7″ screen thin bezels but still waterproof. Adding SP illumination bar, Keeping the IR Blaster in the international version for God’s sake! Damn it Sony..
    720p screen is enough, s800 or better. 2-3GB RAM, 32GB ROM. SD slot. White phone, white front. Purple phone, purple front and so on. camera button. Walkman/Spotify button or the opinion 2 choose from music applications. Better speaker, and better LED flash.
    Probably I have missed some important stuf but I guess this is most of it. yeah the camera like z1 but better 16:9 than 8mpxl s.

    I miss my little Ray, but it’s hardware got too slow to use with many apps.
    How about shoehorning hardware similar to Xperia V specifications in a Ray-sized handset?

    I have tried different colors for the back covers, but always end up with the black rubber cover due to better grip.

  • pds

    The phone to be not wider than 60 mm, not heavier than 120 g.
    To have 12 mp camera with ois and Xenon flash, and to produce the same if not better image quality like the Sony Ericsson C901.
    To be launched with Android 4.4, removable battery, sd card slot, 2 or 4 core processor, (Snapdragon 400, 600).
    For a price tag around 350-400 euro.
    A phone with these specs, and unique desing (not that boring omnibalance design) would be a bestseller in my opinion.

  • sam

    sony should design the battery can take a long hours…thats good think…15 hour, 20 hours….

    Much bigger phone in wide
    Waterresistant without flip covers
    Mini hdmi input
    Micro usb contact no need to flip side to put in the cable it’s not matter which side u have on the cable both sides is good
    Camera like c905
    Battery 500 mah with many hours surfing
    Double speakers like htc one with much better sound than it has now
    Very hard glass with No possibility to crash
    The whole telephone is display no black round the display like htc lg and samsung
    5 ghz 8 gb ram
    Light pulsating signals like sony så
    This was what would like to have on Sony phones in the future Phones :-D

  • Jaywalker

    Better camera whatever sensor might be or MP number. 4.3-4.6 would be the right screen size for a phone.
    The design has to be close to Z1 Compact or E1 which is ok. Without curves or other funny ideas. Grippy material not glossy like Samsung and angular shape.
    Those mumbo jumbo features like image stabilizer that doesn’t work or triluminous screen or Bravia engine that are useless for a small screen could miss.
    More settings for camera like ISO or shutter speed or others.
    Enough space and 2GB RAM would do. Silver colour available. A LED sensor to show missed calls or text messages or other missed activities.
    The possibility to choose the Android version, for ex to roll back to a previous version if the update is messing the phone.

    Hi, in my opinion :
    5.5 and 6.1 with triluminous is perfect, while i believe sony could be better if put some software features like floating touch and sony knows better. i saw the new User Interface in some sites that brings updates like Smart call handling,Smart Backlight control and so on, Do as much as you can to bring this updates more.
    not to mention that 4.4 kitkat.
    glass body with fade away finger print feature.
    and at least 32-GB internal memory.

    Good luck

  • since people liked my fun concept designs i thought i’d show more just for fun the game one is meant to have a sliding second screen that can be used for games i just cut it out of a nintendo ds

  • HardyHarHar

    Just get a z1 compact with replaceable battery & IR Remote. This phone should make me stick to it for 5 years :D But I guess it won’t happen since sony want us to buy phones every year

  • Flint

    lol. Did you really make it in paint? Haha, you should definitely learn photoshop.

  • jaybee

    Latest hardware n software (android) updates available for not less than 2 years

    because its sounds like a joke if you have still one year of warranty but could not get new updates anymore (yes i´m using a xperia s)

    great camera (with a slider like the sony ericsson c905 cybershot)

    and a coloured ilumination bar like the sony xperia u or sp

    water resistance is not a must have but its a nice to have

  • reDalerT

    Xperia z1 in xperia z size, better speakers, more internal memory

  • jaybee

    and a replaceable battery

    The SE Xperia Arc(S) successor:
    I’m thinking of a phone with the exact body of the Xperia Arc(S), including the angled chin with the inward slant leading to the arced back, since most Sony Arc phones just used the arced back instead of the other unique aesthetics of the SE Xperia Arc(S). With that said, I would like to see minor improvements of the original design though like moving the LED notification light to the front of the phone, removing the front physical buttons while keeping the shape intact, and of course including a front facing camera.

    As for the phone itself:-
    If it is possible make it waterproof
    An IPS 720p screen under 4.5 inches
    The latest and fastest Snapdragon chipset available(if the Snapdragon 800 is superseded)
    2 or 3 GB’s of RAM (if possible, more is good)
    IR Blaster
    32 GB of internal memory
    SD card support
    12 Mega Pixel rear camera with the sensor size of the Z1 (include OIS if possible)
    2.1 Mega Pixel front camera (or more without sacrificing the phone design and the picture quality)
    At least a 2300 mah battery

    One major tip for the camera software department:-
    If possible rewrite the code from scratch for the camera (drivers, application, etc.) since it looks like it includes code from the SE 2011 era with the something x 1080 for the panorama picture, the constant disruptions when taking a panorama if the person stops moving or accidentally move the wrong way mid-panorama, and ISO acting like its in auto mode even though an ISO is chosen.

    And that ladies and gentleman, is what i want in the next Xperia phone :)

  • Fox35

    Now I have Xperia Z but the best of quality of my phone was Motorola RAZR XT910 . Very good quality ( on the back was very good Carbon material = no damage , clear and looks very nice. Sony should think about this material. Specification is important but quality is much more I think

  • Knightpt

    This says it all with 100% my feelings.

    Just wanted to put more emphasis on and go even further :

    Ditch the on-the-shatterproof-Sony logo. => Just ditech the shatter proof plastic sheet and put a real glass like gorilla glass 3.

    5-5.2″ IPS Panel. => This. 200% this. 300% this. 400% this. infinite % this.

    8 megapixel enough just bigger sensor and IOS

  • tsharly

    -knife scratch proof , “because my xperia z scratches even by my clothes lol”
    -make the digital zoom better with no noise ,”read and watch the camera reviews the sony have the worst zoom and its true since I have already xperia z and z1, no matter for the pixel just look at the lg g2 digital zoom with their 13mp camera is much more better either than lumia and z1 ”

    -make your own either SONY os or a market for those countries works by its mobile pay card not the bank card .”in some countries the android is boring because the market availability of apps is very poor specially in middle east the apps that exist in play store is just for kids , now the kids also hate those apps believe me”.

    -make your bravia engine work not only with photos and video but with the system and the launcher.

    – now these days people use their smart mobile as a pc , but only the problem is the small screen “not big like the xperia z ultra and not either small like z&z1” and also please add the hand writing to it because most students want it.

    -make better softwares because the screen is jerking when you swipe it to other pages make it like ios , I know sony is the best company so please make it possible .

  • gunboat_d

    no, but android sucks for people who don’t want to use google services. for people who work in your “average” office environment with AES or Office or Outlook, then WP is the best OS. I like some parts of Android, but it isn’t ‘information efficient’. it’s better than iOS, but not as good as WP with getting you relevant information *in an platform-agnostic* way.

  • gunboat_d

    oh ringtones! are you a 10 year old girl desperate to get katy perry on your phone? As a grown man, how much time are you willing to confess you’ve spent playing with your ringtones?
    I like wallpapers as much as the next guy, but once I start putting widgets on the screens (you know, because I like information from my phone), then I’ve covered up most of the wallpaper. And I don’t have problems with ‘lists’, it’s no different that 4 pages of icons. Maybe you should cut down on the fruity cocktails; they’re impacting your special reasoning.
    and everyone wants to talk about the beauty of customizing android…well, there are a lot of people who think Samsung and HTC make terrible, ugly skins and people want to head over to Cyanogen to get something close to stock. or they come to Sony, which offers a close-to-stock experience. or they make a big deal out of GPE and the Nexus series and the simplicity of the OS on its own. unless you’re a experienced programmer, the only thing you can customize on an android is your home screen. and that’s just like, windows phone.

  • Amir

    not realistic design in terms of making it happen. try to make realistic design. that size of sensor and xenon flash would be sensible to place close to the middle of the back and it would have a bump – like lumia 1020. sony logo in the front is too small – looks fake. front pacing camera at the bottom looks ugly. also the profile of that kind of phone would be really thick – more then lumia 1020. otherwise, it’s ok.

  • Omnibalance design, 5.5-6″ screen, 64GB, 2GB+ RAM, Fast Quad Core, SD-Card slot, Waterproof, Qi charging, included stylus.

    This would be awesome. Hoping for Z Ultra 2 or something :)

  • Comments

    1. Love it. Though it may make the phone really heavy & expensive..
    2. Rusting hasn’t been an issue for any of my phones. Well, maybe the exposed screw…
    3. Sure, bigger’s better ;P
    4. MP count is overated.. but i guess they’re following Nokia’s supersampling technique which makes use of the extra Megapixles.
    5. meh =/ (comming from a current XS user)

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    folders to put apps in is another, notification panel is another, themes are another , lock screen wallpapers
    the list goes on of the basic customisabllity of android
    if you dont know how to do any of the above, then maybe u are in fact a 10 year old girl
    wheres the apps for windows phone?
    they have facebook and a few big ones like that, but waiting lists for apps to appear takes years and never in most cases
    notification screen among others, the list is endless of WP shortcomings .

    windows phone is so dead in the water that microsoft are paying sony and samsung vast amounts of money just to use it
    why dont microsoft use that money to make a proper system

  • another concept design i did now please note i have not added a camera yet

    also let me know if it gets annoying i just glike to share my ideas :)

  • angry customer

    Just the same thing as the xperia z1 and z1 compact, just launched at the same time, because its pretty stupid considering buying the z1 compacr after that same tecnology has been out for months -_- and a new one came out already (805). So thats it: the flagship phone with the latest hardware in two sizes without compromising specs.

    Xperia X10 since it was so ergonomic with a 5′ Full HD IPS Triluminos w/X-Reality

    Walkman sound chip + Walkman icon and any settings that can make it sound crisper to richer.

    OIS and Carl Ziess 27.3 MP lens Xenon flash with more optimized camera software

    Dual THX stereo speakers+ IR

    32GB Internal storage + microSD

    Snapdragon 805 or what ever the future holds + 3GB RAM

    USB 3.0 + micro HDMI output

    3700 mAh removable Mugen battery because since they can build it would be cheaper for Sony to contract them to get it.

    Latest Android(4.4-4.725??) If they come out with that version :).

  • gunboat_d

    just how valuable is the notification panel? on my xperia, the notifications do not cover sub folders that youre watching. they do not cover server-side rules. they do not tell you when important emails come in unless they get dumped into your main inbox. oh, but it tells me how many likes my instagram gets. I can tell you which is more valuable to me.
    folders? don’t really use them, but it is handy. themes? I got tired of that shit with windows xp. I’m glad you like to change the pretty colors and get cool icons; I really am. but that’s fluff.
    apps? that’s the obvious sticking point. the apps I miss are mostly Japanese-centric, since that’s my second language. and Google Maps is still the best map system bar none. but there is a gmaps app that works well in WP, so I get by. after that….apps….mint was a big one for me and now it’s here. endomondo does not have feature parity, but it works well. The People Hub does all the FB basics that tide me over on the road. I haven’t even installed the official app. I have all of three games on my WP phone. only had two on my android. I don’t use my phone for games. Sony Reader app…now THAT’S what I want for my WP.
    so android is nice. but it doesn’t work for me. doesn’t play well with corporate email and server rules. when it came time to get a new phablet, I boiled it down to an Z Ultra and the Lumia 1520. Android’s weakness in the corporate world was the kicker for me (and the terrible camera in the Ultra). I like Sony hardware. the Z1 and the Ultra are gorgeous phones, but the OS keeps me from being productive. I’ve owned an iphone, the pre plus, the focus, an xperia U, and now the 1520. Android is a fun, but iOS has better audio APIs and some amazing audio apps (I’m a musician). Android is fun, but google deliberately cripples AES and other MS tech that corporate email runs on.
    I don’t hate android, but I don’t think your criticisms of WP are valid…aside from apps, most of your complaints are about the window dressing. and android’s biggest strength, the use of google services, are totally lost on me in a corporate setting.

  • uchitha

    SHOCK PROOF and Xperia’s will be flying off the shelfs !

  • mixedfish

    If the phone has a S-Master HX chip, the phone can be ‘average’ for all I care.

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    take away all those things and you dont need a smartphone
    your ideal phone sounds like a nokia 3310
    it makes calls and receives texts

    but does fuck all else just like windows phone

  • Castor

    I want something that can be powered by external power sources directly, not charged. It would be great if you can put your Xperia on a dock that has a battery or connected to AC (converted to DC) so you can preserve the battery juice of the device or simultaneously charge it.

    If we keep charging the battery, it wears out sooner. If we can power the device externally, even if the internal battery has already given up, we can still use battery covers to sustain the phone’s power needs.

  • Ghareeb Saeed

    I think all of the guys just nailed it, but I would like that #Sony need to consider that one flagship a year is quite enough! I don’t want to change my phone every 4,5.6 months this is just absurd!

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Lifetime support sounds good.

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Waterproof port with cover so I don’t need to dry them after submerging when I need to charge or use the jack.

  • 3rdflyleaf

    EW. unrealistic.

  • Amir

    you are wrong, because you will have 1 more option for charging – magnetic charging. :-)

  • Mr.Alawi

    there is no questioning about Sony’s design for their device they have the best looking devices …so things i want from Sony’s new devices :

    1. Stereo front facing speakers.
    2. Screen that have same or better quality then Z1 compact.

    as for hardware..

    lastest CPU and GPU sanpdragon’s chips

    3000 and more mAh

    internal memory of 32GB with expandable

    screen size 5″ at max

    Full HD …2K is not needed

    RAM 2GB is enough and 3GB are welcomed

    and water and dust resistant.

    i think that would be my ideal device from Sony :D

    hope they will make a device like this that would bring me back to Sony again :)

    doesnt matter with pixel count but preferably more than or equal to 12MP, extraordinary low light performance with no noise & OIS
    & one thing specially i would like to have, dat is manual autofocus during video recording…..something like slider on screen to focus from macro to infinity
    I want this feature bcz during outdoor night/low light shooting, camera just keeps on trying to get perfect focus but takes a lot of time…& during this process i’ve missed many good quick shots of filming :(
    so most of the time i had to put it on infinity….just to make sure dat i’m not gonna miss this shot
    OR may b sony must do their homework correctly
    2-3GB RAM
    latest snapdragon chipset
    Front camera with autofocus & may b a small led if possible for low light shots
    design something like Z1 compact but also somewhat like Xperia S without transparent bar & lower section with no capacitive touch buttons bcz nowadays navigation keys are on-screen
    I said Xperia S bcz it has very small upper & lower section……front side utilized by screen will b high & i like dat

  • GXB3

    The Z1 Compact but with capacitive buttons to make use of the large bottom bezel. 32 GB instead of 16 Internal (My apps don’t fit in 16GB). Or maybe introduce a transfer app to SD feature :) I really don’t need a 2 or 4k screen. 720p on the Z1 compact is good enough as it does not stress the battery.

    I have an HTC One right now and the battery is pants. I also have a Z Ultra and loving it except for the limited internal storage.

  • Karan Gandhi

    Being a Sony Xperia Z Ultra user… I would like the following things improved from the specs of the Xperia Z Ultra and which would make it my ideal phone:

    Dual Speakers

    Dual LED or Xeon Flash with the same camera as the one on the Z1 and the Z1 Compact.

    3 or 4 GB RAM (It is possible as the Galaxy Note has 3GB currently.

    IPS+ Display with the same 1080p Resolution. More than that is overkill.

    3500+ Mah Battery

    Cyanogenmod or Stock Android with Sony Software tweaks like the Stamina Mode, Location Based Wifi, Bravia Engine, Clear Audio+ and etc.

    Applications which come with the phone that can be uninstalled if not wanted. (I currently disable them but uninstalling them would save me more memory space.)

    And last but not the least, a 64-bit Processor like the Snapdragon 805

    I have an Xperia Z1, and there are just a few things I miss on that phone compared to the Xperia S I had before that:
    – USB Micro-AB (instead of Micro-B as the Z1 has).
    – HDMI output in addition to USB Micro-AB, or at least a separate MHL, so that I can use an external display in addition to USB OTG

    In addition to this I miss the following:
    – It must also be possible to feed power to an MHL to HDMI adapter from the phone, as it is a pain to have to have connect power to the MHL to HDMI-adapter as it is today.

    – If possible: A greater dynamic light range on the camera sensor. The problems come when on the outside in bright sunlight or at (just after sunset)/(just before sunrise), where I want to take pictures of the sky and still get the landscape on the ground correctly exposed. This problem is also present on the Xperia S, so I suspect that this is due to the EXMOR R/RS sensor.
    – Optical zoom on the camera. There is some R&D going on to make it possible to make a camera lens with adjustable lens through some clever substances (or other means), so this should be possible to implement in future camera lenses.

    Sony should also be better at providing tailored cables, holsters etc. I had to go to third party suppliers to get hold of a USB OTG adapter and belt case for my Z1 and S.

    These are my wishes.

  • FooVoyager

    Software support for longer than a year…

  • Marius Rogg

    how about a go2?
    I mean, with little other specifications, like an 4,3 inch Display, hd, bigger battery (that was the main reason why i give up this phone), and of course IP 68, not only IP 57 and an self-bending smartphone (happens to the z1). How bout a military certification? or the certificaton that you can drop it from the high of 5 meters or something like that.

    (I packed my go in an silicon case and throw it often or put it in an beerfilled cup to boast and my go is good living untill now. But a smartphone which need every 5 hour a charge is not very smart)
    The strengths this phone was it´s good looking and it´s outdoor qualities, so keep this! ( but not the 2012 design with the xperia logo under the screen, better would be a near zero bezel)

    For a phone like this I would pay 250 € (So maybe the start price could be a little big higher)

  • Narius28

    go 2!
    At least: qualcomm 1,2 GHz dualcore, !4/4,3 inch display! (not 5!!) 1 gb ram, 8 gb rom, IP 68, bluetooth, GPS and a good battery ( best would be the 2.300 mAh from the z1 compact)

    Design maybe like the e1. how about an drop certification? (must have the right class for that but with the go it worked)

  • Luca

    5″ Super AMOLED screen,
    3 GB of RAM,
    an octa-core 2.6 GHZ processor
    64 GB ROM
    Water resistant
    Android 4.4 KitKat
    Xperia SP’s LED Bar
    Xperia Sola’s floating touch
    Xperia E1’s speakers

    This would be perfect

  • gunboat_d

    well, no point in arguing with a fanboy. google cripples AES and corporate email, so it doesn’t work for *me*. it doesn’t notify *me* of stuff i need to be notified of. it doesn’t integrate other services i use into the OS in a useful way.
    i never said sony would skin WP. i said their android skin is minimal and that is a key selling point. so why not make a WP phone with their awesome hardware and add some exclusive Sony apps like Nokia does (with some success)? Sony is a hardware company and a services company. they should make their services platform agnostic and should offer hardware that works with different OS’es.

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    if i had a choice, id still be using nokia as my phone of choice, but microsofts system crippled it into mediocrity with its rubbish os, now you want to cripple sony too?
    just as sony is finding its sea legs in the global market with z1, z ultra and the brilliant z1 compact
    my last two nokias the brilliant n8, i was due an upgrade so i went with lumia 900, it turned out to be a massive downgrade, the bluetooth did not work, no fm radio, the list of shortcommings is just endless.
    my cousin recently bought the lumia 1525, the camera works great, but the os is just as i remember it. absolute rubbish

  • Wolf

    Sony Xperia Z Ultra 2 :P
    6.5-7″ 2K IPS display
    3GB RAM
    32GB storage
    20.7MP (or the rumored 23MP) camera with dual LED or Xenon. Don’t need more megapixels, need much, much, MUCH better software!!!! I mean, seriously, the software optimization CANNOT be overemphasized Sony! 5 MP front facing camera
    Snapdragon 805
    Waterproof (duh :P)
    Sapphire glass front/back/then aluminum sides. Lose that AWFUL screen protector, i’ll just add one anyway!
    Great sound quality
    Kit Kat+
    Speakers at both edges of corners like on Xperia Z tablet. Looks so B.A.!
    Less bezel, to allow for more screen real estate!
    Beautiful Sony logo on front top. Back has Sony logo again on top, right under it is Make.Believe and then “Xperia Z Ultra II” in middle
    Omnibalance design, I like those sharp edges. So stylin’!
    IR Blaster, NFC, GPS, etc. “‘Da Works!”
    Latest Adreno
    Now, just put all that in a 10.1″ tablet to for ~$550 and I will pour $1200 in Sony’s lap.

  • ChinaIsCompletelyAcoward

    DISPLAY: 5″ IPS panel, gorilla glass 3 or dragontrail front an back, and with x-reality & trilominos tech.. 1080p 441 ppi.. Please sony logo should be printed beneath the glass or no logo at all.

    PROTECTION: Water tight and dust proof. Internals should have hydrophobic coating if water happens to penetrate inside the phone (to avoid total water damage). Non-rubberized coating for carbon fiber polyamide frame( i like xperia z frame).

    STORAGE: two internal storage (32 & 64GB– this will minimize the number of ports).

    CAMERA: like Z1 but have better camera algorithm and image processing. OIS if possible.

    PROCESSOR: latest available chipset.

    BATTERY: 3500 mah.

    FEATURES: Swipe four corners(or any other gestures) of the screen to wake (this will lessen the fatigue of the power button).

    Since this is D6503, so it should be the ZL (C6503) successor, so it shouldn’t be water resistance.

  • cesar

    5-5.2″ 2K display, 3gb of ram, snapdragon 800 or whatever the latest version is, kit kat, Good camera like 13 megapixels or more, and the most important thing: Made a COMPACT phone !! like xperia ZL, minimize the frame and maximize the screen like your strongest competition (nexus 5, galaxy S4, … etc)

  • B

    Liking the Z1 Compact, would love to see one more even smaller iteration of it. Still addicted to Xperia Ray size. Also love to see the Active/Go successor.

    Very interesting thing I just come across at MyDeals247.com – I could choose any number of items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.

  • The One

    I know I’m late to comment but:

    They should release (3) phones:

    – Compact (4.5-4.7″ Screen @ 720P) with 2750mah battery
    – Regular (5.0-5.2″ Screen @ 1080P) with 3000mah battery
    – Phablet (5.5-5.7″ Screen @ 1440P) with 3250mah battery

    All (3) should have the following specs:

    – Dual front facing stereo speakers (loud)
    – 12 or 16MP Rear Camera with OIS, dual tone flash, dual pixel focus technology, and NOT wide angle camera (just makes the edges of the photos soft)
    – 8MP front camera
    – Fingerprint scanner on the side
    – Wireless charging
    – DASH charging like the One Plus 3
    – True USB C connector
    – Waterproof
    – Dedicated camera button
    – Volume buttons located ABOVE the power button!!!!
    – No headphone jack, but include a usb adapter that can charge and plug into headphones at the same time.
    – AMOLED screen
    – Latest Snapdragon 800 series processor with latest Adreno GPU
    – 3 or 4 Gigs of RAM
    – Dual Sim
    – SD card

    I hope I didn’t miss anything, but would that be so hard?
