I've owned 2 Sony phones in America: the Z3v made for Verizon...amazing, one of the first waterproof phones, and now the xz2 compact. Amazing phone. I hate big phones. You should see the looks I get when I tell people I have a Sony phone, and then show them the features. I'm looking for my next Sony phone!

Another argument against sony phones: Finding a variety of cases will be hard. Getting it repaired will be hard. Find help online will be hard.

Coming here after the Xperia 1 III was announced. I'm really tempted by this phone, but I'm scared that sony will cancel their phone line like LG did.

I've wanted to buy a sony for so long, but there is NO buzz what so ever when they release a new one. Last time I went hunting there wasn't any new releases at all and the available models was kind of out dated. But here I am, learning that they actually still make phones. I didn't even know...

Love my Sony Xperia XZ Premium its still going great and showing no signs of dying... Great review also, and I'm don't understand why they don't market their phone as much as the ithe tech companies do, like you can't get Sony phones in Australia any more all you see are blech Apple & Samsung
I will prefer sony phone than chinese phone brands😂

I am waiting for a small powerfull phone as the successor of my XZ1 compact. With a mini jack included. But the Xperia Ace was Japan only. And I don't know if the Xperia Ace II will come to Europe. So it will probably be a Samsung S10e, Note10 (without jack) of the 4g Google Pixel 4a. Apple does have powerful 5" formfactor phones but I don't like ios.

If the buttons on the bottom are not reversible, I'll never buy one. ie. Back/ reverse etc. To be able to change sides.
Straight shooter answer: they are buying iPhone, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo. The landscape for other brands with flagship models it's just becoming like a desert...dry as hell.

Sony. While the design is well thought out. One of the best smartphone back in the day Now i dont consider and recommend it anymore. They are Expensive. Too many compromises. Specs lag behind other flagship phones, while they are the once leading in terms of specs. Now they are just playing like apple. If they want to be back in the map, produce groundbreaking camera sensors front and back, ramp up their specs. If they are afraid it will canibalize their point and shoot segment, well xiaomi and huawei and samsung already killing it. But Sony rx100 will still sell to enthusiasts and regular consumers, as the lens of a the camera is still far different from smarpthone cameras.

I feel like we are at the point now where our only choices are Samsung or Apple. I was recently looking for a new phone for my wife, every sales man wanted to know what phone we had. "Oneplus? whats that?" I really dig this sony, but to cheap to buy a phone for $950. my oneplus 7 pro 256gb was $264 refurb last year...

you forgot crappy sony displays. I bought 3 sonys in 2015-2016, as soon as the display has a little scratch, the whole touchscreen doesnt work anymore and from one second to the other you cannot communicate with anybody anymore. Samsung has no problems with broken displays. This is just crazy bad

I agree with your observations. I had Sony Xperia Z1 compact which I loved. It was very smooth and something that would not feel like a brick in my pocket. But yes, after I bought that, I was told the successor was already on its way.. sad because I have many Sony products and know that they can do better

The answer is simple! They don't want to understands the need and the expectations of the customers! How the holly sh... to produce super sensors and cameras for competitors and to make a mockery camera in your own phones??? It is a suicidal act for your own company. The marketing team also should be blamed for this disaster! If they would have so good camera as the Xiaomi or the Samsung flagships would be a real market hit! acting in this stupid way will undermine their own company interest until will have the faith of the NOKIA company!!!!

I dont buy em anymore because I owned 2 Xperias and both of them went black and would not turn on shortly after getting it and Sony wouldn't help unless I paid them $250 without a guarantee that it would be fixed. They should follow LG 😅

@Troy Flaro i get it i once had a galaxy note 7 wich was recalled that phone got really hot for no reason and i once had a iphone 5s wich died on me after half a year the display didnt turn on again it was due to water damage they claimed so i had no warranty it was an expensive fix. But because of my job i get a new samsung device every 2 years and i must say they are good but not better. The s10 im currently using has occasional freezing and slow ups while its memory isnt even full or anything. Oh well good thing there are many choices to make between oems.

@black dynamite yeah, I remember that back would heat up. I think the screen went dead due to moisture. I mean it's been about 3 years or so but after my experience gets tarnished, it's hard to get me back on board unfortunately.

@Troy Flaro oh jeez i had the xperia play too i forgot about that one lol great handheld for roms mostly but eventually the hinge mechanism broke on me on that one. I had a white one with changable black front. Too bad Sony lost you but the older versions really do not compare to what they offer right now. The z5p had a awefull snapdragon tho wich had overheating issues overall.

@black dynamite I'm glad you had luck with yours but for me the Xperia Play and Xperia Z and Z5 Premium were all I needed to switch the Samsung. Love Sony as a whole but they lost me with their smart phones.

Ive had the xperia acro s, z1, z2, xa ultra, z5p, xzp and now i have the xperia 1 and i am going to upgrade to the 1iii. None of these phones broke down on me and my mother used my old xperia z1 up untill januari of this year with the same battery in it. She upgraded to a xperia 10ii. What phone did you have that was so faulty if i may ask? Was it the Z5? Ive never had an issue with their phones. And i have been enjoying ip since 2012.

I am Sony guy, but, Sony nowdays-for 30yrs is average in all aspects. Last Sony buy is Sony 48 tv in 2017....sound bad bad bad, remote c. design bad, softver bad, ram-processor bad... I sad it all. That is last Sony for me and my family. '90 vcr, tv, big stereo sistem.... I know you Sony, sometimes Sony made 5plus stuff but that is not enought. Best mini stereo sistem from' 90 in small components I encounter with incredible sound was Sony. I almost buy Sony phone in '15 but it was grabed from stores and never to return, here....
