If Asus could launch a ROG or TUF midranger with a SD730G it'll be a big hit

And that Xperia 5 should be compact phone so what next from Sony will be 6.5 to 7 inch phones ? Even on that 6.1 it has larger body size then most of the Sony line up to date.

Now they got the final product, that is expected to start shipping to us that pre-ordered within a week or two ("mid September").
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2019Try to compare it its real competetion phones like p30, note 10 or iphone 11. They are smaller... moreThey are all wider than the Xperia, which is the most important data when it comes to handling. Also, except the P30, they're all more expensive.
If I was mobile gamer I would choose ROG2. But I am not so Xperia 5 is it. Didn't answer to second poll as all those phones are underwhelming. If I must, then Motorola.
EskeRahn, 08 Sep 2019Easy win: The F(x)tec Pro1 - oh I forgot, you are ignoring the existence of that...Wasn't it introduced first on MWC? And it has 2017 specs. And there aren't many people who need physical keyboard anymore.
KebabSLO, 08 Sep 2019Nokia is still better then Motorola in this case. Nokia also has the best android version upda... moreNew Nokia phones should be out of the box with android 10 right now so they will get android 11 and 12 plus one more year of security updates. But as of now they will come out with Android 9 so they get updated to 10 and later on to 11 and that will be it for them.
If they even get android 11 cause of there SD 636 and 660 can be so old that google maybe dont support these anymore for droid 11. And stock android isnt anything special if it isnt from google pixel as then it's unique from google. From Nokia this stock android isnt anything special as it has no Nokia touch on it and thats why it's not unique. They cant even have AMOLED screen on these price range they ask for there phones. Xiaomi Mi A3 has stock android too with SD665 and yes it has 720p screen but it still AMOLED and cost less then 7.2
Meizu 16Xs will be around 220 euro but has under display fingerprint reader and AMOLED 1080p screen plus SD675 for around 220 euro. Yes it dont have stock android and dont get updates but it has more value for the money. But then again it has bigger battery and smaller body. Nokia 7.2 is 159.9 x 71.2 x 8 mm while Meizu 16Xs is 152 x 74.4 x 8.3 mm.
And sorry i dont believe on some pseudo quality build Nokia fans talk about. I have had 90% of my phones only Nokia phones and there quality isnt anything awesome over what i have now. Nokia has old SoC and everything but ask the premium middle class price. They have nothing special or innovative. HMD just lives from the old fat that Nokia use to be and nothing more. Back in the day when Nokia were not sold to MS they had even the lower end phones with a low price and good SoC on them for the time they were released. Now they have 2-3 years old SoC and everything else too. This new 7.2 should cost maximum of 150 euro for it's specs. Even if it would cost 150 euro i would still not buy it cause there are even for 150 euro phones out there that will make them look over 7.2 like a flagship phones

Always get many votes & always almost the number one most voted smartphone brand in the internet...
Sony Xperia should not be struggling right now.
Those sony fans who can't do anything than voting and ranting about how good is Sony, You're all useless if don't even buy its product.
In my opinion, the 5 is the best flagship, being "small" enough for most people, and being the most versatile in what it offer at a "fair" price. The ROG Phone isn't bad, but it's way bigger and the gamer aspect is not what matters.
And I also want to see what TCL has to bring.
The best new phone is Nokia 2720 flip!
Walter C. Dornez, 08 Sep 2019Really? People think the 7.2 is better than the One Zoom?Nokia is 100$ cheaper
Whackcar, 08 Sep 2019No, Nokia died a while ago. HMD is just cashing in on the brand name. It's phones are as gener... moreYea i will believe Motorola is even trying once i see a phone worth the money.
Motorola became a joke in these last years, just like their adds and phones.
Mr. Anonymous, 08 Sep 2019Both are bad. Motorola is stupidly limited to 4gb RAM and Nokia uses outdated SoC. TCL looks ... moreNokia is still better then Motorola in this case. Nokia also has the best android version update support. I don't like either of them atm, but if Nokia decides to release a flagship one day i'm sure many would give it a try.
A member of samsung A series has become flagship .....
