Why do the new xperia phones removed Lanyard Hole?

The Lanyard Hole was a big bonus and makes the xperia different from other brands. It might not be a big thing to some, but its the details of their designs through out their xperia lineups. They should really consider bring back the Lanyard Hole, because its just this little hole that makes the xperia more unique and a bit different from other competitors and Its also useful to some users who likes to put a strap on their phones.

Re: Why do the new xperia phones removed Lanyard Hole?

I agree... I made the same complaint when the X line started... I really wonder why they took it away. For me it feels safer to have a wrist strap rather than a case (both together is ideal)...

Anyway I think I will miss that feature because now there are absolutely no phones with it and when I upgrade my Z3C it's going to feel weird... Specially now that I have to go for a bigger option in order to have the better features.

You could adopt Ringke fusion cover which has lanyard hole even for the iPhone cover.

 

Good advice Uliwolly: I will file a complain for both Fm radio and lanyard. I will report back about it.

Re: Why do the new xperia phones removed Lanyard Hole?

I need to upgrade from Z3 but XZ has no lanyard hole. I am a Sony regular customer with a Sony ecosystem of devices, unfortunately I will have to opt for Z5 and start studying alternatives for the next moves. I use the Lanyard for trekking and other activities, and a floating strap for boat, beach and pool. It proved being very useful.

XZ no lanyard attach?

I can't believe they removed lanyard or wrist strap attachment point from all phones.
