Oh, great. I finally find out who to blame for Sony's dated design. Ladies and gentleman meet Akihiko Adachi,



he is the head of Planning and Investment, Sony Mobile. Basically what he said it that he didn't use bazeless screen tech because

1) He wanted to double down on dual front speaker. ( which isn't very loud even with 50% louder sound and doesn't produce impressive sound, the are ok at best ) Honesty that sounds like an excuse to me.

2) A structural reason that the camera parts of Motion Eye are placed so as not to overlap the display for thinning.

So he decided the phone needs to be thinner which makes the less room left for mothin eye camera parts. Wow, great decision . If only he could thought about keeping the same thickness we could may end up with a bazeless display or maybe with even bigger battery.

Xiaomi is probably using JDI's full active display in their Mi Mix 2.

The screen size, display tech and overall design certainly point to using JDI's tech. Huawei is probably also going to use the same display in their upcoming mate 10. So Sony had the chance to use the tech but they didn't and the lame excuses for not using the latest display tech from a company which they are a part of makes me super mad.

To execute at this point, it was year long plan but JDI's full active display just made introduced around last quarter, and you guys expect them to change with all sudden. Are you nut or something?

Although, Sony has close relationship to JDI, still management and execute in timely manner isn't easy as pie.

In a moment of weakness I ordered today the XZ1C in pink.
Will get it on Oct. 3 2017.
Just wanted to mention that it was sold out almost everywhere ...

Ha ha. Well, don't forget to post pictures. I want to see how pink it actually is in real life and whether it's more 'red'.

Well done Sony on the battery department. Finally a unique selling point for Sony flagship phone - Best in class battery life.

Synthetic benchmark is also great
http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_xz1_compact-review-1660p5.php

But what really stood out for me is their praise for the actual performance -
They mentioned how great a phone can perform in benchmark but shows lag and stutters in real world experience like the new Note 8 and other various flagship but not XZ1C.

"The phone runs SUPER COOL under peak performance, is capable of handling literally anything hassle-free, and offers amazingly smooth Android operations. Yes, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is probably the FASTEST phone right now no matter what some SCORE CARDS are telling you."

They also seem to improve the low light performance a bit. But still not the level of best flagship camera level. Hopefully it's a sign that they are working hard to improve.
