User opinions and reviews

The only thing i liked about the XZ was the form factor... nice to hold in hand, good size balance and not that slippery like modern smartphones... but the rest of the phone, i was not impressed at all, specially the atrocious battery life.

Well you are posting this on 2019 so, yes, some of your points are true but not all. 3GB of ram is very little for today's phones and it shows in this one... My battery life is also degraded after 3 years of use and pubg gaming but it is still manage...

  • Klaus

One of the worst if not the first of the worst of Sony xperia.3gb ram and the fon is extremely slow.. It freezes at least once every hour and the least said about the battery the better. I charge this new phone twice a day even though I don't use app...
