    Bought XZ1 as soon as it came out for around 750-800€, for one year I couldnt be more happy, but as soon as the phone hit that one year mark, no Updates anymore, camera stopped working, even Whatsapp and alarm app stopped working properly.... Made the mistake once, never again.

    Honestly, Sony for me has by far the best Smartphones, I've tried many brands but none were as good as Sony in terms of longevity. I've had mine for more than 6 years. It just started to malfunction recently so I'm looking for a new phone. The previous Sony I had before the current one, lasted 4 years.

    You see there it peaks at 2013-2014? That's when Sony Z phone was famous for its camera and popular. However, the screen was notoriously fragile and this hurts a lot of Sony customers including me. I got myself Asus after months dealing with a phone which screen can crack for no reason and my asus still survive until now

    I once had a Sony Xperia XZ and it's quite cool. People may need a while to get used to using it but that's true for any phones that you're unfamiliar with. Their marketing isn't great, and their customer service could have improved so as to reach out to more customers. Thanks for doing this review. It's awesome and I hope more people can learn about other great phones out there. I definitely don't like monopoly.

    Had terrible customer service in the past with Sony, the battery went on my Z3 they told me it was not covered after 6 months, the UI is dated, the reliability was dire, they do not market them either and demand money that the consumer does not think is worth when compared to an iphone or Samsung, trust me I was a die hard sony fan, K700, k800 K850 c902, c905, sony satio, Z2C Z3C Z3+ sony m2 and then gave up with the brand,

    I think u r ignoring the biggest reason behind sony's failure and the reason is they r manufacturing the same designs from the past 7 years....from the very first experia z1 to the most recent mobile the looks and the feel r same...same design..same themes..same wallpapers and nothing much has been changed....everything was going fine till they were in a collaboration with erricson...they were very innovative each device was different from other devices and those were superb too like w550i...sony erricson p1 and the whole walkman series were awesome but now they r making new phones but unfirtunately they always gives a glimpse of Sony's 2013 models....and I won't like to spent my precious money on these idiotic phones

    They are soooo awesome i miss the vaio those were lovely machines...i wish sony would give apple a run for their money i know they can do it. I have a twelve pro max but i must say i do miss my walkman phones. They had a touch screen one that i drooled over. The cybershot c seven oh two was the last one i owned which was way ahead if its time in my opinion. It was water resistant and had photo editing software built in with a walkman suite for loading your music with album art😻and something i miss, being able to use music from your own library for a ringtone...no software needed😻😻i wish i could get a sony phone😢they had one experia that had goldfish swimming on the lock screen displaying notifications by the color of the fish...missed calls, voice mails stuff like that. That was sooo baddass🦾 i think it was the first generation models. No one was doing it like that back then🦾🦾they even had a device that was kinda like an itouch/ipod that was ahead of its time to me too👍🏼 sony needs to take another bite out of apple🦾🦾🦾i know they got it...they should hire me lol😄i need a job😅😅

    I've worked for Sony for 5 years as a Customer Services Officer and I've seen the transformation from Z3 to ZX Premium. Honestly, the hardware is so much better than iPhone, however, Sony seems don't pay much attention to the marketing of sale to it. Salesmen: 120HZ, IP65/68, fancy camera, nice speakers, 5G? Of course! Customers: Which brand? Salesmen : Sony! Customers: Nah!

    Every Sony item I've ever owned broke the day after warranty ended. I had some Bose speakers just die on me, they were 16 years old and have been put into movies boxes about a dozen times, that is a quality product. But with Sony I've had one of their early palm devices, just stopped working (no damage at all to device), a Sony car stereo system, just stop working, a Sony digital camera, lens zooms gears seized up. A bunch of Sony home audio equipment just die on me. I will never give Sony another dollar of my money. They rank just above comcast in quality.

    I really liked my budget Xperia XA1. With a case it was a tank. Fell on it and curved the frame and now i have a curved screen display but all the pixels regenerated and is working fine (despite some OS glitches) ..but getting too old. I'e ordered a OnePlus 7T discounted to 350 Euro which is insane in my country since the 6T has not dropped its price. I will be moving away from Sony.
