Omg look at that huge top and bottom bezel, just straight trash can bruh lol jk,
I have a 6s plus so I have no right to speak bad about a phone's top and bottom bezel length.

There's no defending that top and bottom bezel. It's BS. There's not even a second speaker to justify the bottom. And it's not even available for four months! And Sony wonders why it's mobile division is completely tanking. And, of course, these will never hit the US...

There is, it's not as if those bezel only has air behind them.
Why don't you apply as an engineer at Sony eh?

if they cant make smaller phone size to reduce those bezels, they still can use 5.1 or 5.2 screen, those extra 0.1-0.2 inch is alot better than useless bezels
or atleast, place capasitive button on bottom bezel

Everything is great. Wished the battery on this XA was 2700maH.
Xperformance was 3300mah.
Who cares Sony display tech has the best low power usage in a smartphone expect iPhone of course.
So this phone will definitely have 5 hour + screen on time.
And 2 day battery life with stamina mode.
Or 14 day battery life with ultra stamina mode.

It surely is, but Sony has smoothen the corners. Which I don't like.

Why it's more than 140mm for a 5" phone? Couldn't Sony make a sleek/slim phone?.
