Premium build quality, great performance, slick design, etc. Only concerns to be had are 1080p display and camera not matching phones like Samsung or lg. Other than that it matches up quite well.
Even the phonebuff youtuber uses the op3 as his daily driver when he has access to basically any phone.

Imgur is best for uploads, keeps all the detail.
Look XZ perform in lowlight compared to same phone (XZ is up, S7 down):
Now I know it aint same light scenario, but unfortunately rev didnt offer night shot, just dusk (albeit dusk is even more demanding task for a camera

He tried the indoor several times, same results, shows how they underrate Xperia's and how BIAS they are.
Very good review. I just wish to note that the absence of FM RADIO is a major shortcoming. One should consider that the majority of people in the Third World have very bad Internet coverage. Also it would be useful for tourists that travel outside of the major cities

Xperia XZ's camera has a larger sensor, probably that's why the bezels aren't small
- better in "each number"? That doesn't make sense.
If you're talking about benchmarks, XZ scores as much as or better than S7 in GB4, 3dmark, etc. AnTuTu is crap, it's funny you take that scores seriously. Many manufacturers are known for cheating AnTuTu scores.
- Xperia X phones have a limit when it comes to recording 4K. It's just a measure to avoid overheating. The XZ shut down not because of external heating. Don't believe me? You can see videos of the Z5 Premium recording 4K videos for 40mins, after Sony addressed the video recording cap. Also the Btekt guy did say both phones weren't cool, they were warm. Overheating is different from heating up. Also, FYI in that video, they set XZ screen to a higher brightness than the iPhone 7. Why so? It just shows how biased they are.
- don't you get it? Sony didn't have the source code for Nougat, or in other words, didn't get the source code in time. Is that even a con? Sony's software is more stable than LG's. It's a proven fact.
- Android wont benefit from 6GB RAM in any way. Read up the articles from AC.
