Yup.... Although I've been late to adopt the latest as I still love my Z5 Premium.

 

Probably next year though.

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: Mrs has Z5 Premium and eldest daughter is using a Z2.

Z1 compact.
It's still going strong. But my aging eyes will be looking for a bigger screen soon.

I am a fan too.

 

I had the Sony Z3 compact and recently brought the XZ1 compact. Not a fan of the larger phones. 

 

Prior to my sony phones, my first smartphone was the HTC Sensation (still works well).

"Fan" is too strong a term, but I do like my Z5 Compact, notwithstanding the occasional issue (e.g. the thread I've started in this forum). SWMBO casts covetous glances at it. When her phone dies, if the Z5c is still hanging in there she'll inherit it and I'll look for the latest Sony compact.

My Z2  touchscreen gave up the ghost. I replaced with a Galaxy S7, but the Xperia remains my favourite and am pretty sure my next phone will a 2018 Xperia.

 

I hope Sony stick with mobile, I'm a bit worried it may go the same way as PCs and E-readers.

Since Sony started proper compacts/minis, while Samsung/HTC offerings were barely related to their flagships Sony did the real thing. Z1 Compact, Z3 Compact and then after trying the Note 5 I went to the X Compact that was out at the time. I'll be watching for this year's offer. I've had good experience with the timeliness of their updates too *UK Sourced models.

 

Previously had the X10 Mini Pro, C510 and the W880 models also from the Sony/Sony Ericsson stable.

I had an Xperia V - bought it for the waterproof feature. A truly awful phone. Among annoying things was the poor GPS reception, hard or impossible to remove bloatware, poor camera and strangely placed buttons. It was a deviation from the Samsung Galaxy S line that won't be repeated.
