    XZ3 is too thick, imagine putting on a case on top of the thick XZ3, not very appealing. Sony also doesn't offer flagship compact variant that Samsung does with S9 and now S10e, a devastating oversight, possibly due to production restraints as manufacturing two models would cost more, but to me having a flagship compact variant is very crucial because not every person wants gigantic top of the line flagship phone that costs a ton as oppose to a compact variant that is just as good in quality & performance but more affordable.
    I feel that Sony has missed the mark with the new Xperia 1 as well, the 21:9 screen aspect ratio is just too niche-driven, physically it's way too long to handle it comfortably with one hand mind you, I was so eager to get the new Xperia 10 but with that ridiculous 21:9 screen and use of subpar materials, I'm sticking with Samsung once again.
