    This phone would've ticked all my boxes only if it had the slab design, why did Sony decide to move away from that beautiful design!!!?? The slab look made Sony very unique. Back of the phone now is ugly! And the front just doesn't have no more design and just plain like all other phone these days .. boring… bring back the slab!

    Stupid decision to remove the headphone jack. SONY boasting so much about audio superiority removes one of the biggest plus points to its flagship. Hopefully the XZ4 will come with one. Otherwise its come very close to outdoing the S9 in appeal

    How much did you take as bribe from Sony? No Sony customer liked their curve edge and imitation of Samsung. Wher's the Headphone Jack, you think following iPhone and Samsung can make Sony great, then you'll be gone just like Vaio in time but like Dell and HP they'll be on the shelves. If you are Sony, you don't need to follow someone, people expect you to make your own thing

    I'm really confused, apparently there's a purple/reddish version of the phone but I can't seem to find it listed online anywhere. The only colours I'm finding are the standard black, green, and white. I was trying to find information on if it was an exclusive but I've found nothing. I'm in the US if that matters.

    The fingerprint reader is at a horrible place. The design is similar to one of their very old phones. I loved the edgy design which made them unique. Now the other lables go to that an Sony goes back all over again. Also don't like having the camera in the middle. I don't think they will get enough new customers to replace those that they're losing with this. Don't even get me started on the headphone jack
