Re: No FM radio?

Uliwooly, the lack of one or more features, also banal as the FM Radio, are a DETERRENT for an user in the choice of its device!

In my opinion, you and Sony, don't understand this and don't understand that the disappointement of the users only favorite other brands! 

It is a SHAME that in 2016 Sony makes devices in plastic! It is a SHAME that there is not FM radio while the X Performance, the same in all aspects, has it! And the examples are more.

These are the facts, I suggest you and Sony to take a look at our disappointement.

Re: No FM radio?

Was about to switch from my archaic Sony Xperia V to XZ, but, no FM - no switch. I'll just keep using my old V.

Re: No FM radio?

Wow, people still listen to FM radio. I know the audio quality is good but the radio stations play nothing but garbage these days.

Re: No FM radio?

There are stations that do not play music only but has interesting programs, interviews etc. as well...

I would recommend Sony to improve the quality of radio antenna instead of removing the feature :/

Re: Where has the FM radio gone on my ZX!

It seems could be because of an issue between radio fm and google now...

Re: Where has the FM radio gone on my ZX!

Sony did all the right things with Xperia XZ but did a blunder to remove FM radio Slightly frowning Face

I was so much impressed to buy this and come back to Sony but this is a deal breaker. Sony, please note this, you are loosing lot of your potential customers due to this. Please see if you can include FM in future XZ phones. I am disheartened by this move of yours as this phone had everything i and most of user look for but no FM radio is a deal braker for me...
