I am a bit disappointed about the new x series, was expecting more, but it's just the same phones with snapdragon 820. Really hope they introduce x performance ultra with 6inch bezeless screen, snapdragon 823/821 and 4k display, it would be awesome for ps4 game streaming

This is the most unattractive Sony flagship phone in years but still looks better than Samsung flagship. Really shows how ugly Samsung soap bar looking design is.

I've never been a fan of Samsung designs, but Galaxy S7 has one of the best ergonomic designs out there. The phone feels premium, compact, and I feel so comfortable using it with a single hand. You can't say the same with Sony's Xperia phones. They look elegant, but not ergonomic.

hmm.. so are you talking about people with small hands.. or maybe with big hands.. Based on what a device is ergonomic for you would be ergonomic for everybody? I used so far Sony Z series with no ergonomic issue, fits pretty well in my hand. Pity Sony is not more competitive on the price level.. They are trying to compete with other companies in the flagship segment instead of running over competitors with good prices..

So Sony does exactly what Apple and Samsung does. They do an incremental upgrade ie faster processor, slightly better cams etc and they get slammed for it whilst Apple gets praised?

I went for the Z5, it cost half the price and have better battery. No regrets at all. The Z5 is a superb phone, especially after the updates!

True, unlike what PA and many of its readers who haven't even touched an Xperia want to make you believe, it's an excellent phone. I can't wait for its 'true' successor, wich will hopefully be the Z6.
