The camera's picture quality as I can see by myself, looking at these samples - is just horrible even in daylight... not to mention about dark conditions.. It is a tragedy. 2017 premium flagship? It must be a joke. I've been taking MUCH better quality pictures using my galaxy s2. Looking at these pictures you get the feel of the 2010-2011 standard, something, that I've forgotten long time ago. But now SONY has reminded me those times, when cameras in the phones couldn't give satisfactory results.... and I'm really wondering why Sony has such big problems with implementing good camera in their phones. Is it camera sensor? Sony is selling its sensors to most companies nowadays.. Besides SONY is one of the greatest leaders in making premium quality sensors. Maybe too much pixels? Or just inappropriate image processing? And one more thing - the reviewers say that everything about the camera in this phone is ok. Is it really so?
SONY have longstanding tract record of POOR aftersales services under warranty and UPDATES ..even though on paper specs look good ..sadly .. ALMOST all sony hands sets are made in china .. NOT japan ..
Holding my friend's z5 premium, i felt so amazing with its solid. Its tough too. The screen and the loudspeaker so great. Rich of tones and colors. But the loudness of ringtone and mp3 not to impress and almost covered when you in the noisy street. The wide bezell look classy too, not rounded like the other phones. But the xperia ui with navigation key on screen makes the screen smaller. Why sony doesnt make capacitive navigation button on its bottom bezell? That makes more ergonomic for its beautifull screen and entire phone form too..

And turn to landscape mode our finger will can place at the side frame for too long, because it is really uncomfortable, the bezel is here to place your thumbs when taking photo playing games watching movie, but thinner bezel can feel the drop risk everytime to hold the frames.
jjfz, 18 Jun 2017Ergonomics is missing in this design. With sharp corners it will be uncomfortable to use the phone. The corners are chamfered on the xzp, should make it more comfortable to hold than other current xperias.
And they're a lot less square in person.

S8 still have thin frame, so people can hold it while playing games.
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2017one word: "Bezelicious"thats the reason it has poor ergonomic. very big bezel. poor screen to body ratio. it looks very big but with small screen.
Anonymous, 22 Jun 2017best phones give what most people want. not minority like you.
most people want: amoled with ... moremost people want:
1- amoled with good refresh rate, but I reading more than playing game the refresh rate is nothing meaning to me, I want the screen is comfortable for easy reading, but amoled turn the black to show the maximum contrast between page background and words and it lost some details in black tones.
2-daydream, is it a cool feature, I have wall clock beautiful than little small screen and every feature must consumption more battery.
3-slim bezel = good ergonomic? Slim bezel isn't good ergonomic in landscape mode, because you only can hold from the edge, it is not comfortable at all. Further more slim bezel has weaker protection to the display and dimension 18:9 is easier to crack in a drop damages compare to 16:9 shorter designs.
4- good camera, every flagships have good camera, the best camera only can be found on DSLR. The Predictive Capture can't be find out in every flashship.
5- good ui with good animations, no lag.? Actually every flashship have good ui with good animations some in the settings, if you want it more the fancy ui can be more consumption the battery, nothing is free.

Do you choose the most beautiful in your opinion or evaluate focus, noise, color, brightness, dynamic range etc?
