It is that time of the year again where we call on our readers to let us know your favourite Sony Xperia devices of the past year. All in all, Sony released 7 Xperia models during the year (not including their dual-SIM counterparts), which is fewer than the number of devices released in 2015 (11).

We only saw one budget model from Sony (Xperia E5), a number of mid-rangers (Xperia X, X Compact, XA and XA Ultra) and a couple of high-end models (Xperia X Performance and XZ). If you had to pick one as your favourite, which one would it be and why? We’d love to hear your picks on the comments below.

    Well obviously the Xperia XZ followed by the device i own myself, the X Performance :)

  • XZ!!! :D

  • Shakeel Mohammed

    Xperia xz its the all rounder best flagship from sony this year and the sales proved it

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Sure it’s beautiful, i have the white version though. But honestly the device doesnt feel that much premium as my Xperia Z did for example. Sure its well build but the metal back doesnt feel like aluminium or whatever its made of, it feels like plastic strangely as does the frame since its made of polucarbonate. What i’ve heard if the back on the xperia XZ feels much better in terms of quality :p Anyhow dont get me wrong, i absolutely love the device since i have it myself. Only downside with it is the batterylife and well build quality imo :p

  • GregAlex

    Xperia XA :)

  • emmanuel david

    I’ll go for Xperia XZ best 2016 Flagship in my opinion..

  • XZ

  • azzido

    unable to vote…

  • Ray

    I will choose between Xa ultra and xz. However, neither of these two models has strong battery life

  • SONY only

    All xperia handsets this year are sucks and ugly ..

    I love z2 more than xz

  • Борис Михаилов

    Design: X (Performance) for me is a bit sexier than the XZ. Don’t know why.

  • Moisés

    Boris, the front of X Performance is the same of z3.. The one people like the most so far.. Most success of Sony .

  • Moisés

    The same happens to LG G5, people doubted is was metal.

  • Moisés

    Xz is the best overall
    Xp seems to have better cam
    Xa is best look

  • sammyl

    Xperia XA Ultra

  • raju

    X compact.. So cute

  • Martin Deschambault

    X Performance… Gorgeous device, excellent camera, etc.

  • Taquidi

    XZ. Beautiful, great buid quality, great performance, great battery. I’m hugely enjoying it, amazing phone.

  • Terence Wu

    X. I own a black one. Using SD650 it is a most balanced sub-flagship.

  • Night Guy

    Xperia x

  • mountain

    XA Ultra, its a balance between form and functionality, and price.
    I only wish that the colour pops like X/XZ

  • Vinny Conforto

    XA

  • P9

    Universe Black X Compact

  • n00b

    Z3 Compact

  • n00b

    The bezel’s beauty ?

  • Squirtle 1

    XZ Blue

  • iia3ezu

    Not really impressed. Bring on 2017. Hope Sony shows more ambition.

    Nokia is making a comeback in 2017 with some really nice Android phones.

  • Lars Holmgren

    X compact

  • Nebhan

    Certainly, it is Sony XZ for its marvelous design and specifications such as instant capturing ability and high resolution front camera.

  • trimax

    Xperia Z5 Compact thats my favourite Phone in 2015 and 2016

  • Kim

    Xperia X. Love it. Great metal and 2½D glass finish. Fast and detailed camera with manual shutter speed. Fast fingerprint scanner. Nougat. Vivid FHD screen. Great stereo speakers. Remote play PS4. 2 days battery life. Supposedly waterproof (but not warranted) according various You-tube tests. All except the 650 SOC is flagship worthy, but overall the phone is really fast – and now even faster with Nougat update.

  • XperiaBlog

    Apologies, the previous poll went kaput for some reason. We have updated the post with a new poll that (fingers crossed) should work fine.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Yes it’s the same as the image but when I hit “View Result” it will load infinitely and shows error on top of the poll

  • Moisés

    I read news here on my z4, it is not this way for me, looks like topics only.. Cannot vote too

  • Moisés

    Guys, you have to access the computer version of Xperia Blog. The mobile does not allow you to vote…
    If you are using a cellphone or tablet, go to bottom of page and click on CLASSIC WEBSITE

  • Moisés

    I hope X Premium comes in January.. With the 4K HDR display

  • Zayed Kotayba
  • X Compact. Because it’s a little beast and I hate large phones! Unfortunately I can’t vote either, though.

  • It worked, thanks!

  • Geno

    X Performance (silver) due to the exterior design.

  • hansip

    surely XZ takes the cake 4 me. the only (maybe physiological, i don’t know) problem is lower than 3000 mah battery for 2016 device..

  • dragonsneeze

    G5 has a thick plastic paint on top of metal though

  • Saeed

    Xperia X Performance and XZ :-)

  • Lior Turin

    I had the Z2 for a year+ and I was so satisfied I got the XZ when it was released. A little disappointed about the camera but it’s still good and for the rest, I’ll probably stick with Sony for my next smartphones too.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    My X Performance have some kind of paint on it aswell :p

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Xperia XZ was the best Xperia phone since the Xperia Z2 imo :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    The front of the Xperia X Performance is not the same as the one found on the Xperia Z3, huge difference with that 2.5D glass used on the X Performance :p

  • Moisés

    Only the glass..
    But the speaker, position of sensors are same I believe..

  • Moisés

    Yes…

    People tap on X and sounds like plastic..
    Many people are still not sure if M4 is glass or plastic.

  • Sergio Andres Veizaga Sanchez

    Xperia X, for having the best battery performance have the same screen as the high range, the same camera, the only thing missing is water resistance and because it has Fm radio which for me is very important

  • PoweredBySony

    The xperia XZ Looks and features are now available for z1 and z1c with this rom
    https://youtu.be/U6MoqQqVzQc

  • XperiaBlog

    Ok thanks, we’ll investigate further. Anyone else unable to view the results?

  • dragonsneeze

    Glass and plastic are easy to understand. Clear plastic has uneven reflections, glass is more uniform. I think X has a layer of plastic attached to the metal. And if the metal layer is thinner, then this might cause that sound.

  • dragonsneeze

    It’s normal. G5’s paint is more like another layer of plastic-y material. If that’s the case for the XP then… shame :)

  • Moisés

    Anyway I like the brushed style of Performance. The lime gold and graphite black look awesome.
    Not into the white one because the rear is not painted, it is silver.

  • Moisés

    Looks great… I would get the graphit black or lime gold.

  • Bezels for the win !

    I was unable to vote yesterday , but it’s working now :)

  • Bezels for the win !

    try now I also couldn’t vote yesterday but it’s working now…

  • SONY only

    Hahahahahahahahaha

  • Actman

    My vote goes to XC White!

  • Борис Михаилов

    Yeah, but overall. Everything about it makes me like it.

  • cchoiz

    Agree with you. I have purchased Z5 Premium 10 months ago and IMHO is better than any Sony smartphone launched this year.

  • Oscar Federico Wingartz

    I’m up for the X i own ir with Sony concept and Is great, if i had the money i would go for the XZ

  • singh

    Definitely Sony xz, I’ve used a z3, z5 and the original z, xz been the best everything is perfect, it’s been good long journey for the z series and its finally perfected

  • Moisés

    We should make a new contest, THE BEST XPERIA EVER……

    I’ ll vote for my dear z4….

    – Looks better than z3
    – As almost loud as a computer
    – Does not break easily
    – It will never let my hands freeze
    – Most beautiful cold display ever
    – As bright as the sun. Can’t even use max brightness.
    – 81645 on antutu, even with only 5 cores working to prevent overheating
    – Best colors Sony has brought so far, copper and aqua green which sadly were not available in my country.

  • Mac

    XZ although I’m a compact runner since Xperia Neo. Then used to be rocking Acro S, Z1C and Z3C. But now with no XZC on the horizon I got myself a Mineral Black XZ, and love the brownbronze effect (sad there were no purple or white opinions though).

  • Terence Wu

    You have the wrong picture. Look at the camera lens ring and you’ll find that it’s an Xperia X not performance.

  • Ninajfink

  • vmxr

    i need a thinner version of xz with bigger screen at least 5.5inch.

  • KIMI

    Sony really need to step up their game for 2017.
    2016 was lackluster
    I do love Sony direction for refinement instead of innovation however they really need to add some new features still to justify their newer products especially when competitors are churning out new innovation year by year. For starters, they should at the very least adopt oled or amoled. Xperia used to be the hallmark for on screen time but now that competitors starts to use amoled display they have outplayed Sony in the battery life. Xperia is also often associated with waterproof they should include pressure sensing technology to ease the use of the panel when wet and also do something with the fingerprint sensor, all i can ask for is for them to make the sensor work when wet also please no more plastic, I’m fine if it were to just be a small surface of the device so that it has better signal quality but to have the whole side as plastic feels like a rip off for the premium price we pay. Sony also needs to stop being lazy with ther camera software, it needs to be redone from scratch. Speaker needs to be better I mean cmon you guys (sony) released the 2300$ mdr Z1r yet tou cant put much effort too improve the device speaker, I know some of you is going to defend this saying “its weak because its waterproof” but I’ve heard the iP7 speakers and they are loud so no more excuses from sony on that part and finally this is 2017 so no more sub 3000mAh battery please.

    I know this is the wrong place to plea but i had to let out the frustration

    Also happy new years everyone

  • razorg

    Xperia X (2017) seems to have very nice small up-down bezels. Really looking forward to this. I don’t quite like the new “Xperia” font though. Looks like Comic Sans. Current Xperia font is so elegant and nice.

  • Evang3los

    I love my XZ. Honestly as good as the z3.

  • Andys42

    Shame you cannot vote for the Xperia Z5, which was still a perfectly valid phone in 2016 and sooo much better than the plastic crap released in 2016. When are we going to get the Z6 or EQUIVALENT replacement?
