Re: Not trying to shoot anything down - What sets this product away from the competition?

As far as I can see it's the charging/external power pins with magnetic connect, the very fast short range wireless peripheral connect, claimed very good durability, small form factor for the screen size and a promise of regular updates.

I'm waiting to see but when my present phone is due for replacement (sadly before too long if I drop it again) it might be worth considering. It looks to me a lot like what Sony should have done instead of suddenly taking a scattergun approach, and it's relatively gimmick free (no curved screens with exposed edges to crack, for instance).
