  • Moisés

    Is QC 4.0 already available on any phone?

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Well, I’m with Sony since Sony Ericsson K700, I was very loyal, but I can’t take it anymore, I was hoping for at least new UI and soft, but no, same UI from 2013, same bezels from 2013.
    Enough

  • Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0

  • fried_egg

    I am waiting for my phone network to put up the pre order link… then I will either buy it or, I might just stick with my z5… I have never thought that before on a launch as my contract runs out… but I like my Gold phone and it is running 7.1.1. It looks like it has metal sides which is important in a premium look… how “good” does the silver one look? The XZ was very cheap looking.

  • kurakuradisco

    i wonder if they can manage the heat distribution just like XZP, if it does.. this goes my next daily driver

  • hansip

    Oh man the same capacity between the compact and the normal one.. Disappointing to say the least.. but the compact will surely do great though with 720p screen. can imagine it will replace Z3 Compact at last. and the XA1 Plus should be the one to watch with bigger cap battery and XA1 Ultra engine.

  • Atanas Vangelov

    nobody cares, especially Sony. They want 16:9 screens, so its only your problem with bezels I don’t see a reason to change the looks of the device. UI is great too. “If something works don’t change it”

  • TALLO883

    I was planning to buy the XZ1 after I read that it will have 3000 mah battery. But now, surely I will get the XZ PREMIUM.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Wonder if we get that camera features in Android O. 10fps burst auto-focus shots and Sony has moved 4K recording to video mode finally. Sad that it doesn’t let use intelligent active mode for 4K.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Honestly it’s superior to these phones. Plus with android O most of these features will be available.

  • TALLO883

    The Xperia XZ PREMIUM surely will get Android O. So the XZ1 won’t be superior to the XZ PREMIUM. Maybe the 3D CREATOR will be exclusive to XZ1.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I don’t think so. It will be available for XZP or at least it will be ported XD
    Plus you’ll be able to get XZP for a discounted price :D

  • kurakuradisco

    ~Among the novelties is a smile-based trigger for said predictive
    capture, and an autofocus burst feature that refocuses between burst
    shots – a first on the mobile scene~ GSM Arena.

    well yeah, most people put innovation only on the bezel

  • Moisés

    Metal body is easier to lose heat.
    Maybe is not necessary

  • Nocturrne

    Small screen, small battery… Where is my 6″ screen and big battery? Sony failed hard this year. Sadly, I also hate the new Samsung devices. I guess I have to milk more life out of my old Z3…

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    so disappointed…

  • Omar “Monan” Arnado

    I have the Sony XZs Warm Silver which I bought when it launched. Damn.. ;( I should have waited for this. Sony, y u do dis?

  • fried_egg

    EE have put a “show interest” rather than “pre-order” screen up… they went straight with a pre-order an hour after the IFA the last few years… especially weird as the phone is actually going to be shipped in the next week or so… I am glad they have, as I need to think about this… may be even wait for the reviews of whole day users… that battery is small, and the Z5 doesnt last me at all so… Oh dear. I didn’t want a Samsung or an Iphone… LG even gave people the V30 for the last week to test under an embargo… Sony seem to be rushing to ship because of the iphone8 but not had much in the hands of reviewers other than a couple of press shows that were embaro’d until today.

  • kurakuradisco

    but easily triggered by heat when we push the chipset and gpu to work hard… i really annoyed when i record FHD video with my X and it’s suddenly stop

  • kurakuradisco

    put urself together man…

  • fried_egg

    but this is the Sony Fanboy equivalent of 1D splitting up

  • Nocturrne

    I actually prefer the bezels. My fingers are constantly covering some part of the screen on the Samsung models. The curved edges make it extra annoying.

  • kurakuradisco

    we are on the same boat then

  • kurakuradisco

    lol.. wait and see.. but keep your hand above that push button

  • iamshilov

    In 2017 that’s unforgiving. And I’m not making example with S8 or upcoming iPhone. Both Samsung and Apple have phones with bezels but it’s how they work around them. Samsung (as in its A-series) uses buttons, and thus gets rid of the on-screen black bar. Apple has the whole OS play around Home button also without on-screen bar. But if you choose as Sony does (and I actually prefer it that way) to stick with on-screen navigation then this bottom bezel just has to go. Moto X 2013 had it (and I loved that phone!) all figured out and it was a handy, usable, good-looking solution.

    To have 1/6 of your front panel unusable should be a crime in our days (add another 1/6 for the top part).

  • Andrew

    I used to love the Xperia range but I gave up on Sony and switched to Samsung when Sony gave up on making competitive flagship models.

  • Is it truly 1080p display or downscaled 4K like in XZ Premium?

  • Camilo

    Whenever I see specs like these something tickles inside my pants.

  • Atanas Vangelov

    you are clueless, stop this shitty bezel-shaming, don’t buy it when you don’t like it. I bought the device FOR THESE BEZELS. gtfo hater

  • steary_eye

    I can finally change my Z1 to the new XZ1. Finally! Thank you Sony. My Z1 is damn reliable as well. My daily driver for 4 years and still working great!

  • Aiden Pearce

    Next XZ2 with 2000mah battery and Smart Power Saving 2.0…
    and also keep using that shitty 5.2 inch 1080p display …most of the display is taken by on-screen nav bar and status bar….

  • JC

    Considering 4K makes any dialer app crash and it strains the overall system I’d say they’re gonna keep it down to 1080p most of the time and 4K with selected apps/functions. Just like they’ve done it since the Z5P.

  • Richard Brutski

    Enjoy the slowest and most expensive flagship of 2017.

  • Svnjay

    Did you seriously include part of the screen as the bezel?

  • Svnjay

    Same UI from 2013? What?

  • Richard Brutski

    The UI is the best looking, and also the fastest out there. I’ll take speed over anything.

  • Andrew

    I have an S8, it’s not slow, yes, it is expensive, but the screen makes it worth it.

  • iamshilov

    Not as the bezel, but as a part of a lower 1/6 of the screen that is unusable.

  • Cong Kim

    and you think with that mindset, they will able attract more customers or even keep their current customers?

  • ew210

    you are retarded .

  • ew210

    only part that’s the same about display is the resolution 1920:1080 …. so I can only laugh how narrow minded you are .

  • Abrar Zahin Shahriar

    Nav buttons eat up a good chunk of screen. WTF Sony?

  • Shinchan Crayon

    Really?? The S8 screen is suck while watching 4K video, not as detailed as XZ Premium. If you like sucksung then its okay……

  • Alex Norris

    IMO, nothing revolutionary of the new XZ1 … Only 3D Creator and a slightly more powerful chipset ..
    If XZ1 had real improvements in the camera (a new aperture, lenses, algorithms) then it would be worth thinking about acquiring XZ1 .. But it’s not there

  • Richard Brutski

    I love black bars on 90% of my apps because they dont support the aspect ratio.

    Also look at any speed test S8 vs XZ premium, LG G6, One Plus 5 etc. It is slow. Hell, an XZs (with a SD820) demolished it in opening apps and stuff faster…

  • Svnjay

    But it is usable. Many apps hide the on screen buttons.

  • marlowe007

    …And no FM Radio anymore :-(

  • James Gaston (Raitwo)

    You are right, they even said on the live, it is a HDR display.

  • Battal

    Today the crown’s for V30, Sony get back to sleep, you late ( As usual )

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c7fe19812da6b3fc0c263a3afa875d29e15a6203a76193d3c2d899d272589349.jpg

  • Alex Norris

    100% agree! The best smartphone, especially in camera features

  • azzido

    Yes, V30 shines and have best camera, unfortunately it has crappy fingerprint sensor on the back :/ no prkduct is perfect but I consider it due to best camera, huge improvement in comparison to sony, it’s like day and night.

  • azzido

    I would rather see distortion issue and wifi fix. Then I would consider to stay with brand but they do not have much time. New iPhone, galaxy note and V30 coming.

  • azzido

    This 3d creator is useless and boring, I wonder why they waste their time on such things instead of focusing what is important and still works bad???

  • azzido

    Sadly compact is not flagahip, made of cheap plastic components. Material reserved for low ends… And slow usb 2.0 in 2017. “flagshit”? Definitely NO THANK YOU.

  • azzido

    It doesn’t work, dead man walking. Especially after these “new” devices release. Actually I thinks bezels are too small and I will not buy it until it is at least 5cm long.

  • Jacky

    Not yet and Idk why…even the lg v30 still offers qc3.0

  • Niet

  • Niet
  • What’s price? Does it have 2 screens? If not than V20 still has something more…

  • Think same, but it may be true 1080p HDR not 4K HDR and that’s what I would like to know, if it is FHD display with FHD resolution or 4K display with FHD resolution…

  • hansip

    Imo, a plastic build doesn’t mean it’s a cheap build as long as the whole idea is a compact flagship with more malleable quality compared to metal build which if dropped get dent easier and more permanent.
