Well , MWC is over and so is the wait (still got a bit left for s8/8+) but MY conclusion is LG G6 while a nice phone i wont be buying it bcuz some degrades here and there + some exclusivity , i want all the good things in 1 package (wireless charging & quadDAC!! LG) so G6 a BIG NO, move on to the sony XZs/Premium beautiful design language but badly implemented "why so bezels!!" (joker style:) though that motion eye camera got me excited i may consider the sony flagship for my next daily driver (or i may not!!!) then the moto G5/5+ simply NO bcuz i dont like moto anymore then NOKIA this a NO too bcuz no flagship phone yet! and last HUAWEI P10/10+ now things will get interesting while P10 is a good phone but a no from me its too much like the old p9 , but about the P10+ ... in one sentence "it turns me ON" wow design is a combo of one+3 ,iphone&older huawei devices but that leica 2.0 pro WOW , the camera on mate 9 was solid enough (leica 2.0) this is the improved version (f/1.8 instead of f/2.2) so yes i will consider this on my short buying list for my next phone , now i have to wait only for samsung to show what it got then ill choose P10+ or S8/8+ , mwc over that was it folks :) :D

"It is still profitable but the profit margin is very low," Yu said of the unit that contributes around one third to the group's revenue.

In fact only Apple 92 , Samsung 8 , Sony 1 amd BlackBerry 1 whom got the whole mobile world profit in 2016

Today, I learned that people are ridiculously obsessed with a phones looks. It's probably because it would get them girls or something...

DrearyDepp, 03 Mar 2017Agreed, Sony does make much better phones when you compare ... moreI really have a high level of feeling that this year will be Sony's true comeback. Their first ever flagship this year is so amazing that it was even considered to be the best new phone of MWC 2017. Agreed, that top and bottom bezels must be lessened, so I do think Sony will use its time to tweak the phone's hardware before releasing it, including the reduction of bezels (75% STB would be nice) just like what Alcatel did last year with the Idol 4s (the first version of the Idol 4s had no fingerprint scanner but the retail unit had one). We still have IFA 2017 for Sony, but the XZ Premium is a very promising power of a flagship that is ready to battle the S8 and S8+ and even possibly the Note 8. The XZ Premium and with proper marketing (either release ads on public everywhere or partner with major carriers for them to promote the phone even further) would easily make Sony back on track again, and possible to beat Samsung, Apple, Huawei, and all of the current top leading smartphone brands in the world. Even here in GSMArena, the Xperia XZ is more trending than the underwhelming LG G6 and the most-awaited Galaxy S8, only losing to the 3310 which will then fall down once people starts to realize that it's not truly a good or even a decent successor of the original tank Nokia 3310

DrearyDepp, 03 Mar 2017Agreed, Sony does make much better phones when you compare ... moreLol not quite sure what you're on about with Sony and being good with software, because they just aren't. Their phones benchmarks show their OS although maybe close to stock, it isn't optimised like the s7, pixel, oneplus. They have quality hardware i agree, but where has that got them in the smartphone camera department then last decade? Nowhere because no good having top spec hardware if the software isnt made well. Post processing etc of camera pictures has been a joke. Let's see if rhis new flagship changes that or they just added super slow mo to distract the fact that normal pictures will be rubbish.

Royan, 03 Mar 2017Oh God can't agree more with you Pal, HUAWEI copy! Why don'... moreHuawei has already copied the Xperia design before. Look at the Huawei Ascend P7.

That p10 is way too expensive and designwise far behind the competition. Front home button is no more, also are bezels useless nowadays. Let's hope the honor 9 will fix those flaws and get the pricing right. Right now we see all flagshipphones 650+ while some years ago with all same innovation and stuff we started 450+...I wont pay as much and tech-blogs should see they are getting phones for free, WE DONT!

JordanBaby, 03 Mar 2017Huawei ahead of Sony? Tell me where did that joke came from... moreOh God can't agree more with you Pal, HUAWEI copy! Why don't they copy Xperia and reduce half of top and bottom bezel? That will great. Can't stay with that big bezel, no more asking just reduce that bezel a half.

JordanBaby, 03 Mar 2017Huawei ahead of Sony? Tell me where did that joke came from... moreAgreed, Sony does make much better phones when you compare the total prowess of the hardware and software. I'll admit, Huawei phones are more powerful in terms of hardware, but they can't hold a candle to Sony when it comes to software. As for looks, I love how Sony retains it's own, unique and un-copied design with the new XZ, but I really wish they had lessened the top and bottom bezels a little. Oh well...can't be perfect, I guess.

Huawei can't even make an original designed phone (ew, the P10 and P10 Plus are UGLY iPHONE AND SAMSUNG CLONES!) when Sony has been making superior design to everybody, whether you like it or not because it's true. Proof? Ask the best phone of MWC 2017

consumersmartphone, 03 Mar 2017It doesnt matter coz Huawei phone will sell better than XZP... moreIt DOES matter that nobody cares for Huawei. A successful company needs much care to be successful. Ask Apple and Samsung
