a phone shouldn't be more than 500€
What these guys are asking these days is ridiculous. Who can afford these things?

papercut, 04 May 2016Since Note 3, every Galaxy Flagship phones support 24bit Audio. ... moreYou don't know Xperia Z series have the best sound chipset, when you connect to car player or bluetooth to any speaker the quality is the best and it is less noise compare to HTC. And now the Z5 and X Performance gain up the sound quality with the the powerful software, it's great for audiophile.

Anonymous, 04 May 2016So we gotta spend close to a thousand bucks on hi end headphones... moreNo true mobile audiophiles uses a mobile phone for their music player. Just a sony walkman cost $700+.... And you have to add a mobile DAC amplifier, cost $700+, after investing in so much money, would you be satisfied with a $100 headphone???
If u use a mobile phone as your audio player, how much of the phone price actually went into the audio part? Actually, all mobile phone audio is rubbish! $700 for a walkman, in audiophile world is just entry level for beginers. There is no limit in the audiophile world. For phone audio it is more important to have loudness than sound quality for your bus, train and airplane journey.

NSO, 05 May 2016here is my SONY devices list ( My Wife & Me ) : Xperia Pro ... moreI totally agree with you. First Sony wants us to wait half a year from the announcement to the release to market. The only device worth considering is the X Performance. Unfortunately it only has 3 GB of RAM while almost all the other flagships have 4. The camera lacks OIS which as we know is crucial in mobile devices with small sensors. And the price - like all the other flagships.
I always wanted to have Sony phone but unfortunately with every flagship they have to break something.

Anonymous, 05 May 2016I think you never own a Xperia phone, so you don't know how best... morehere is my SONY devices list ( My Wife & Me ) :
Xperia Pro - Xperia Arc - Xperia S - Xperia V - Xperia Z - Tablet Z - Xperia Z2 - Two Xperia Z3 - Xperia Z3 Tablet - Xperia Z5 Premium.
Moreover, I have 3 SONY TVs, one Video Camera ( HDR-CX730E ) one Photos Camera ( NEX-7 ).
Also I gifted two Xperia devices to my parents ( Z - ZR ).
What do you think now ?!! I was planning to upgrade to Xperia X but it's really not worth comparing with other brands ( same prices with low specs !! ).

DenisXD, 05 May 2016there are other things that need to be taken in consideration. S... moreSony isnt even trying to stay in the game, if you ask me. You know what the Sony CEO told to the mobile division, get back to profit in 2016 or face the consequences. Looks like they will face the consequences
And no, Z5 speakers cant be made louder. All phones use the speakers at 80% of its capability, for ensuring longer life.

The hate is strong on this one. You can tell which are really fanboys of other brands, bashers and the worst of all, trolls. Internet ones. It's either you've never used an Xperia device for a long time to have some experience or you just don't have money to one. You're cries for high prices won't make them cheaper. It'll only show how an average person you are. If you can't afford it, then save some cash. That's their asking price and you can't do anything about it - in return, you're getting lasting quality. Ever heard of Z1 and some older devices getting 5.1 (not 5.0)? They're a Japanese company, you should look into their culture and they're among the countries with the nicest people, at least today (check on Mitsubishi apologizing for cheating scandal, they meant it.)

Yes, the price is high and the brand itself justifies it, it's a Sony like an Apple device would be. Except that you're not paying for the brand (I'm pretty sure you don't either with an Apple, just take a look at the materials used for their devices and their wonderful, fluid OS), you're paying for quality right here. Call me a Sony fanboy, throw whatever you wish. I don't care. I'm only testifying that you're really paying for quality here and that justifies their prices, like someone would pay so much for a Bentley, you're paying tradition and craftsmanship right there. I've owned other Sony devices from the '90's (Betamax video camera, Trinitron TVs, home theatre audio system) and they still run today, the only problem is that they're outdated.

AnonD-404798, 04 May 2016what is wrong with the software ? and do you think they are not ... morethere are other things that need to be taken in consideration. Sony phones are generally low on volume, and their music output is poor compared to their old sony ericsson phones. It's all about software here. Sony needs to take a look at their wordrobe, and see what made them excel. So far I see no innovations, and they hardly trying to be the best. They just want to stay in game.

Z5 needs a camera update. It takes photos with very sharp details, unnaturaly sharp. And at night it takes usable photos, but that blue and red noise is not acceptable.
Z5 has low volume speakers, and they can be louder just with a software update. From headphones the sound is also not so loud. Sony needs to see these. I dont want to get to rooting just because I need louder volume. And no, bluetooth speakers aren't the answer.

NSO, 04 May 2016No wonder mobile division at SONY is struggling.. the device bee... moreI think you never own a Xperia phone, so you don't know how best of the quality. You just trolling Sony struggling, will you happy if Sony no making any new phone? It is unusual for a person said they love Sony phone.

  • AnonD-25208

What kinda let me down is the screen size, while some people do agree 5 or less is perfect I kinda like 5.5 as my main phone because I do stuff like remote support, excel, write a lot of e-mails. My Z3 feels very small nowadays! Wish they would offer high end alternatives.

Not to say a smaller phone is also welcome but that's around 4.2-4.6 for sports, listening to music and doing basic stuff without all that weight and that's why I use my Nokia 820 for, it never dies.

Love Sony build quality, but I feel like it's lacking innovation, I feel like they're coming a bit too late to the party.

Anonymous, 04 May 2016why would anyone buy this crap over an s7 every phone i compare... moreI would buy the s7 if it had front facing speakers, last year was if it had water resistance and micro sd, samsung is still catching up in some areas, and excells at others, but still, until theres someone who releases a phone with water resistance, and front facing speakres, i wont buy other than sony flagships.
