Do you plan to buy any of Sony's new smartphones? (poll results)

Do you plan to buy any of Sony's new smartphones? (poll results)
Last week, we reminded you of all the smartphones announced by Sony in the last three months: Xperia C4, Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4v, Xperia C5 Ultra, and Xperia M5. The newest among them - the Xperia Z4v, Xperia C5 Ultra, and Xperia M5 - are not available to buy yet, but they will be released soon.

It looks like the Xperia M5 (which features a 5-inch 1080p display and a 21.5 MP rear camera with fast hybrid auto focus) will cost around $400, while the Xperia C5 (which sports a near bezel-less 6-inch 1080p screen) should cost a few tens of dollars less. Both are going to be available to buy starting the next few days and weeks in select markets.

As for the Xperia Z4v, this will be exclusively sold by Verizon Wireless in the US, but it's not clear exactly when the carrier wants to launch it, and neither for what price.

Meanwhile, an unlocked Xperia Z3+ can be bought for around $600, while an unlocked Xperia C4 costs about $380.

We wanted to know if you're planning to buy any of Sony's new handsets, so we made this poll. The results show that 933 of those who voted (57.95%) are thinking of purchasing a new Xperia, while the plans of other 677 voters (42.05%) don't include any of the devices presented above.

If you didn't vote while the poll was active, you can use the comments section to let us know if Sony's new smartphones are (or aren't) of interest to you.

Do you plan to buy any of Sony's new smartphones?

I waiting to see what the Z5 Compact holds! Right now though, i would love it if the newer unannounced phones get USB C connectors since they still have a good chance to put it there.. More ram than the Z3 compact and better waterproofing with a hardier backplate as well as a good biometric authentication system would be great!

How can Verizon even dare to release the z4v when the can't even update the Z3v? Oh wait never I forgot I was talking about a s**t company

An Xperia Z3+ for $600? Yes, in that case the M5 doesn't worth it, but in my country the Z3+ is min $860, so even if the M5 will be ~$420, it will be the absolute the best value for money of Sony phones

You haven't even tried the camera I'm sure... I have tested many times and the only one that surpasses it is the S6... you guys are full of BS

Will be buying the Z5 Compact if it has 4.8-5" FHD screen and the same amazing battery life as the Z3 Compact. Sold my Z3C to buy a Z3, kinda want to downsize again a bit.

The idea of the compact is to make a somehow small sized phone. I think 5 inch is in no way compact. Even 4.5 inch is hard to handle in one hand for some people.

if they can make it like the ZL (but thinner), I wouldn't mind 5" at all... and would happily embrace the 1080p. But for the time being I love my Z3 Compact, there is no way I'm changing this one

Oh no that's awful! YOU broke your phone and blame the OEM for it? Hey, you know, if you drop Nexus 5 chances are its screen will break as well. Screen replacements are always ridiculously pricey, it doesn't have anything to do with Sony.

My dad had an Xperia Go which has survived a lot of falls... after that one he got a Nexus 5 and at the first fall the screen shattered... He replaced it... but soon after the battery swelled and the screen cracked again.... No more Nexus 5 for him... he wants me to get him a Sony one, maybe the M4 Aqua... if not, Moto G 3 will be

Even though I won't be buying them, I think they are fantastic.

If they came with the girls holding the phones, I'd buy them all.

My next phone will most likely be the Z5 Compact whenever that shows up. Unless someone else can put out a sub 5" high end smartphone my money is spoken for.

The Sony fans are getting out of hand more than Apple and Samsung followers.

Dunno. Go to Xperiablog and see that the true fans actually criticize Sony A LOT.
