Do you like the new Sony Xperia XZ2 design?

Most evidently, we got an 18:9 tall display. Sure, it's a trend right now, but considering that most of the media that is being consumed on mobile devices rigth now is still 16:9, we wouldn't say that this is a change one must embrace in order to keep up with the times. Also, keeping in mind that Sony still refuses to make a phone with a QHD (1440 x 2560) display because it considers its benefits to be minimal (but still makes 4K phones, which is a bit confusing), it would be easy to assume that the company wouldn't be quick to jump on the 18:9 bandwagon.
Another thing that's new is the arched back of the device. Gone are the days when your Sony flagship is flat as a plank, we now have a bulged back, which would sit comfy in the palm of your hand. The finish has changed a bit, too, now chasing shiny, reflective colors under the glass panel.
Still, even with these changes, the phones managed to keep some of their DNA. When we look at an Xperia XZ2, there is no doubt in our minds that it's a Sony. We assume it's the same for you. But do you like how it looks now? Check out our hands-on pictures below and vote in our poll!

Same here: the back is ugly as hell, all they had to do was to keep their previous signature design and reduce the big upper and bottom bezels. Also they should have kept their fingerprint sensor on the side and the headphone audio jack...now it's more like another cheap Chinese smartphone!

The overall not-actually-very-compact size and the lack of the 3.5 mm jack is what takes the phone down a decade of pegs. The design is cool, I guess. Definitely better than the previous one, as that one was just a flat brick that didn't fit snugly into the palm. This new one may be less distinctive but at least it's more ergonomical.
