AlienFromNextDoor, 23 Apr 2017They look about the same, S8 slight advantage in some pictures due to AGAIN the same fuzziness... moreYou better respect yourself and the site and stop using offensive words.
Another One, 23 Apr 2017Mi 6 is not released at that time.Why are you blaming on poll?Because the poll is stupid, phones that are available versus phones that are not available... How do you compare that?

Anonymous, 23 Apr 2017I guess there are more sony fanboys than actual buyers;-)If the sony fan boys need to change their smartphone every three years because of its durability and flawless, UNLIKE SAMSUNG FAN BOYS, how come sony be from the highest selling smartphones??
AlienFromNextDoor, 23 Apr 2017Nope. Z to Z5 suffered from it, and it wasn't isolated at all. I LOVED Sony phones, but them n... moreLol, self cracking issue again, where did GSMarena talked about, never, because it doesn't exist lol, to much hate XD
Wow! Considering that Sammy has so much more fanboys than Sony does, this poll really tells how good the Sony XZP is.
- first phone with SD835
- first camera with dedicated RAM memory
- first camera with 960 frames per second
- first 4K HDR display
Other than the design, the S8 didn't bring anything new.
- Iris scanner - there are other phones out there already that have it
- The round corner display - other phones have this too before the S8.
So what will you choose? Nice design over better specs?
I know I won't..

jesse.clark, 23 Apr 2017Let's see how many of these Xperia voters will actually buy the phone, I mean when it's about ... moreIt's not about how many people will buy it, rather how many people value the phone. For instance, many people bought Samsung phones because Sony phones are a bit more expensive, but they value the superior handset from Sony
Comparison wise, what do you mean the S8/S8+ has no competition? XZ Premium already wrecked this phone ever since it (XZ Premium) existed. Then there goes the Mi 6 - not a fan of Chinese phones but the phone is great for tis price, only if it wasn't for the headphone jack. Then there's the upcoming flagship of HTC, the HTC U 11. Not sure if it's going to be good or not, but rumours are showing nice specs. Another one is the greatest and hardest competitor of the year, probably the MVP; NOKIA 9! Finally, another camera flagship phone to compete with Sony in camera.
Of course the Note 8 will be a thing, but nobody's rumouring it yet, so no point of mentioning it yet, but it better be better than the S8/S8+. Not trying to hate, but one thing for sure is that Samsung isn't the only phone of Android world. Not all of them might be better, but some are, and we have to deal with it
Sony xperia xz premium won only because there was no pixel and one plus and apple in competition.
Another One, 23 Apr 2017Looks like people choose BRICK design smartphone over the curve corner design smartphone.LolAnd in the Samsung articles, you always say that people always will always love curved childish screens. Lol
Zenodroid, 23 Apr 2017The problem with sony, is that it's not out till mid summer. When it was presented in February... moreIt's because of the snapdragon chips that sony wasn't able to release it on the market. Samsung is the sole manufacturer of qualcom chips. They had an agreement, that before releasing it to other mobile tech company they are the first to utilize it upon release of mobile phones in the world.

kevin97, 23 Apr 2017You mean, a non-existent phone was voted as the best ?You mean the "best phone" that will destroy every other phone of 2017, has won the poll?
RedTint GS8, 23 Apr 2017From this poll we know what people want
1.Latest tech but gimmickless
3.New... moreI can say the demands by presentation
1.Latest tech (35%)
2.Innovation but gimmickless (30%)
3.New Design (20%)
merajmahmud, 23 Apr 2017if Sony is so great and also loved by people i wonder why it manages to sell the least amount... moreIs this meant to be a retarded comment?
You know, there was once a word called "marketing"
Flashing back at last year, XZ was the top selling flagship phone of Q4 2016 right behind the Note 7
But nobody cares about sales when buying the best phone. Nobody buys a Samsung flagship phone and tell everyone that you bought it because it's the trend, and is the most selling device worldwide
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2017Yeah now we will see who the best selling phone later..XZ already emerged as the top selling phone of A4 2016 - that was done without enough marketing.
Sony advertising this XZ Premium will turn people's head quickly
But I don't mind sales, a better phone isn't determined by sales. We can't say that OnePlus phones suck only because a few know about them
From this poll we know what people want
1.Latest tech but gimmickless
Sony (1st) and Samsung (2nd) have number 1
Sony (1st) has number 2, XZP brings many the 1St tech to smartphone while S8 just simply loaded by tech that has been around (AI, IR etc)
S8 (2nd) and G6 (3rd) have number 3, while sony seems lazy to bring new design
The Mi 6 in the 4th place shows being affordable is important
In the end no smaephone is perfect cause they all failed to deliver those 4 aspects

I LOVED Sony phones, but them not acknowledging this issue and even flat-out rejecting it reaaaaaally made me hate them. It wasn't any isolated incident. Even Watchdog reported on it. Thousands of people online complained about it. There are tons and tons of topics on various forums online. Look it up.
Never again Sony, never again.
