Have you ever / do you currently own or use a Sony Xperia phone? What was your opinion on them?

I purchased an XZ Premium on release during mid 2017 (initially I wanted the much hyped Google Pixel which released 8 months prior but couldn't afford it at the time so I settled with Sony's flagship at the time for only ¾ of the price)

2½ years later I was finally able to afford one so I pre-ordered the Pixel 4 with anticipation and excitement.

Only to be somewhat disappointed once I finally got my hands on one - the advertisements lead me to believe it's capable of "ground breaking" photography.

Only to conclude at the time there's not much difference between high end phones as far as image quality is concerned, these days even mid range phones take just as good photos as their high end counterpart.

I gave my XZP to a friend at work who was in need of a new device, only to end up missing it a year later and realise how much I underappreciated it:
* MicroSD card slot
* Headphone Jack
* Side fingerprint scanner (alot faster than face unlock or the digital front scanners)
* Default music app straight out of the box (other Android phones require you to download an MP3 player app)

I'll be switching back to Xperia once the 5 V is available for purchase in Australia and keep the Pixel 5 in my backpocket as a back up.

They truly are the Rolls Royce of phones in my opinion.

(Hope it's not weird I made a topic about phones, just thought I'd help inject some activity on this site lol)

If I'm not here, I'm doing photography. Or I'm asleep. Or in lockdown. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is just normal.
Never actually owned a Sony phone, but my partner has lent me one to put my UK SIM in since swapping countries.

It's a really old model from 2014 , an Experia M4/E2303.

It's not half bad for a phone from that time considering it's that time of Samsung-Apple patenting every fucking design feature and ever other brand having to make do.

It does suffer from sort of CPU overheating but I'm thinking it's due to age since the battery life is also terrible on this after nearly 10 years.

I just miss basic things on phones like replaceable batteries, headphone jack, and not everything being coated in easily smashable glass. My mobiles have never been the latest, and I keep my Samsung S8 chugging purely for the headphone jack.

Yeah after having a note10+ for so long, I miss headphone jacks. Upgrading means I'll lose my MicroSD slot.
