Tann Hauser, 17 Apr 2017... that is inferior to Sonys phone in every way.
"In every way".
And that is what makes you an eccentric fan with 0 credibility or relevant knowledge.
They are both amazing devices and trade blows. But neither destroys the other in every single conceivable way
-NEOPHYTE-, 17 Apr 2017"I would rather have a 3k sAMOLED display than a 4k LCD."
Firstly it's a 2K screen. Secondly ... moreUmmmm.....how many times do people repeat this???
2k is not quad hd. Quad HD is 2.5k. 2k is a resolution that is only a hair above 1080p.
And no. The s8 does not have a 2 or 2.5k display. It's quad hd+ or 3k.
Second they did not mention either display type in anyway to bash on it. Simply stated what they both are. The Galaxy screens are no normal amoled panels either. And it takes the best mobile display crown and has the best hdr certifications.
But all they said was amoled.
And multi frame processing just marketing?????? Lol. Sure.
All you just did was react heavily in fan denial and lash out in them exaggerating everything

The S8 has a 3k display. And even though the resolution is not quite as high it's still very high. But a much better overall screen quality. Even better at hdr.
And it does have high resolution audio.
And no it doesn't have 960fps recording but that doesn't mean it doesn't have camera advantages.
Tann Hauser, 17 Apr 2017What bashing? Its my opinion based on reviews so far...And followed by your typical denial
Ali Bashir, 16 Apr 2017Jerry missed up with his test, he shouldn't brake the back panel with that tool before the ben... moreHmm...i don't think the glass would have done much thing considering how easily it was bent with the broken glass. Anyway i love how the htc u ultra's back chamges shades with the lighting, and its design is very good but its a bit too tall for people with small hands
Today I had the chance to take my hands on S8 and plus,one thing bothering me was that I didn't know how to hold it in a way that I keep myself from accidental touches, it's all display, I guess there should be a gadget inside the box something like a monopad so people with average hand size can hold it

XtremE16, 16 Apr 2017Xperia xz premium is best ..but too many people voting only Samsung s8 ..becuz of display...I hate when companies sit on their a$$e$ doing nothing. That's what the Xperia XZs is. No change in chipset, only with the camera. So I definitely did not vote for the Xperia.
I'll have to go for Mi6. Makes no sense spending so much money for similar tech thats only marginally different. Already enjoying Mi max at a fraction of competition's prices
NokiaBeast, 17 Apr 2017Yeah Xiaomi fan. "Xperia problems will exist until Sony dies" - so Sony won't die, lolI can smell burning. lol. Yes Sony won't die, they'll just sell their phone business some day, if they can't learn by mistakes.
First time in ages the flagship segment actually holds no interest for me. The S8 is the smartphone equivalent of a chihuahua in a handbag (you know, a fashion icon with no practicality), the G6 is a G5 that someone has taken a rolling pin to (is overpriced to the tune of £150 as well), and the XZP is about the size and weight of a blackboard.
The P10 series is also overpriced. An Android device's main weapon against the iPhone was that you could get more spec (or at least if your dumb enough to think higher numbers always equals better) for less cost. Price being equal as they appear to be getting pretty darn close to nowadays, might as well just go for an iPhone, you get a better eco system, longer software support, and the resale value is much better for an iPhone when upgrade time comes around.
OoolooO, 17 Apr 2017You speak like a true fanboy. :)

Firstly it's a 2K screen. Secondly stop mentioning the LCD panel on the XZ Premium as if it is a reguler IPS LCD. It uses Sony's Triluminos and X-Reality Engine technologies, AND is HDR 10 compliant. Since you think that these don't make a difference here's some proof. Although it's from 2013 it's still very relevant:
"I would rather have a Multiframe Processing Processing camera than a 960 FPS slow mo camera."
lol. You think the Multiframe Processing will actually make a difference. Marketing. Anyway the XZ Premium/XZs camera captures 3 shots BEFORE you press the shutter, so you don't miss the moment. That seems more useful to me. Proof of how similar the S8 and S7 Edge cameras are:
And here's the S8 camera losing to the XZs camera in EVERY aspect but low light pics:
"I would rather have a smart autofocus front cam than a high megapixel front cam."
You're one of VERY few.
"I would rather have the more useful high quality AKG earphones - that included in the box - than a front facing speaker."
Correction: front facing STEREO SPEAKERS. Why don't you have you're own high quality earphones/headphones??? Because CLEARLY you "don't care" about the speakers on your phone. Funny thing is, the earphones are clearly not WORTH $99, it' just to try and justify the $100 price jump from S7/S7 Edge to S8/S8+, but of course you will think that they're SUCH GREAT EARPHONES.
"I would rather have a bezel-less phone than a big bezel phone."
Good luck replacing screen several times, then when your phone repairs cost more than the phone itself, remember: you were warned. lol. But real talk, yes, I prefer the S8 design. However until you've held both phones you cannot judge their designs. After all both Sony Xperia phones and Samsung Galaxy phones have won Design Awards
"I would rather use the more secure iris scanner than a fingerprint scanner."
Good luck using it at night. Fingerprint scanners are faster and a lot more comfortable to use.
I'm not a fanboy of any company. I just prefer the best smartphone there is at the time. This time it's the XZ Premium. :P
Is there any confusion? Samsung galaxy S8 is the best smartphone ever on the planet. Nothing comes close even.
If it wasn't for the S8/S8+ hype, everybody's going for the XZ Premium. Ha! Now where are those people who don't care about Sony? Mi 6 is already there, and so does the G6.
If history is an indication, Sony's black magic of excellent flagships always come at IFA
- For instance, Z3/Z3 Compact, Z5 family, and XZ - all best phones of Sony, all are announced at IFA
If the underwhelming flagship at MWC is already this good, I can only imagine what a beast Sony will bring at IFA this year. Even then, XZs's speed is giving most 2017 flagships a run for their price, including the iPhone 7 Plus 32GB model. Watch Phone Battles's videos of it, you'll be impressed - eMMC storage destroying UFS 2.0 phones, what will the XZ Premium with UFS 2.1 do?
As for the haters, here's what I can say
You can have your own opinions, I won't mind. Just watch and learn :)
