I still wonder why people are going for spec numbers when it is the quality and trust that matters most. People should stop defining technology ENTIRELY in terms of nouns like 6GB RAM and 1080 P but should consider defining it in terms of verbs like 'experiencing, communicating, watching, playing games and so on'.

Also in all other countries they sell their phones with fps did you call out Sony for that? Biased people like you simply can't see what's wrong with the company and keep defending it twisting facts as per liking. I know mi doesn't make as good phones but hey they're half price and do same job as expensive ones and with difference you can buy a better point and shoot plus a audio player to boot. There is a reason they are on uphill climb while Sony's going down hill . Loving my PS4 on a Sony tv BTW

2 yes stable version has issues I never said no you get what you pay for. There is a beta version which is miles Better than it and they don't void warranty on unlocking it. Also custom ROMs the true beauty of android if you don't like change it. I Know customers don't like fidgeting with it​but it's pretty good route to choose. Also the review said about gapps incompatibility did you see anything about native ones? They are pretty good afaik

Security technology advances, so does bribery technology - are you living under the rock? In that case, I'd rather have no security at all since if my phone is stolen or lost, then it's doomed, no matter how secured my phone is. And no, you don't need professional things to do that. Some even simply fry the tape that contains the thumbprint and badam - it's ready to unlock your phone.

When did I ever say that batteries never degrade? I only said Sony batteries, with the help of Qnovo Charging technology, can prolong the health of battery and be able to maintain its capacity for over 2 or more years, whereas Xiaomi will easily degrade it. So what if it has higher capacity to start with? S7 Edge with high end battery already degraded its capacity within just 6 months of use and get worse battery life than the XZ in comparison. Same thing will happen on Xiaomi, unless they incorporate the same technology.

I don't know where to pick this up, but no matter how hard I try to explain everything to you, you will always continue to deny everything. I guess ignorants can never be taught by anything

And if those things happen, then what's the point of having security on your phone? My sister's high end LG G4 doesn't even have any security on her lockscreen, and so does I. When your phone is stolen or lost, your phone is doomed, no matter how secured your phone is.

If I'm being salty, then I would've already called Xiaomi's CEO and tell them to stop their company as soon as possible or I'll kill them and their relatives. Telling the most honest thing doesn't make anyone salty. It's not Sony's fault that they have made better products than Xiaomj

So, you're basically trying to say that every single Android is an iPhone clone. Of course any phone is in rectangle shape - a circular phone would be dope.

That camera position has been Sony's trademark for years, and this is the first time that someone complained about it lol. It's the brand's choice of where they want to put the camera, and Apple never filed any patent that only they can put the camera at the top left corner of the back of the phone.

Metal sides have been HTC's first, but it was Sony with the first metal sides (Xperia Z) so it's Apple who copied, not Sony.

UI is simple because that's what every people want, right? You love a very cluttered UI like TouchWiz and GraceUX? Then go with it, you'll probably miss the clean UI of Xperia
