I would love to see further exploration into RAM on the camera sensor. I feel that's where most of this device (and the XZs) innovation lies, and it is on Sony to make that a big standout feature, it's their IMX400 sensor. As for this bezel discussion I see, meh, the initial point of bezels (before being able to hide everything behind a touchscreen...Mi Mix, and Aquos), were for speakers, sensors, flash (if applicable), etc. On this device, it sort of makes sense, stereo speakers...though lackluster overall, with the other sensors can make for a big forehead and chin. And who knows maybe there's some people out there getting that chrome model to use them bezels as a mirror.

OK . So lets get into FINAL conclusion. In your opinion. NON Haters Opinion. Do you think that XZ Premium is equipped with a good camera ??? Maybe lets leave the night photos. I have now 808 Pureview and hardly ever do night shots. But in a good light. Is XZ P a good contender ?
[deleted post]Awch, another fail, where are the people who were criticizing the artifacts of the xz.

Thoughtl the conversation you were on about between me and the anonymous fellow regarding bezels and design was not what I would call a verbal war, but just a friendly exchange.
Lex79, 15 May 2017And yours hold an abundance of relevance I suppose??

Main thought was that i came here to read some relevant comments especially about low light photo quality. And the only thing i see is the verbal wars.
So much complainers here.. What a succsessfull device

My argument was that nobody likes bezels, that's a statement not an opinion. Sometimes people dislike the drawbacks of the bezeless designs, but as they are being defeated more and more people will get into the bezeless style.
I !Ade the same prediction back when blackberry was king. I predicted that blackberry will die because nodoby likes physical keyboards. Even those that they pretend that they do. And lo and behold , once and autocorrect and swipe became good enough people switched an masse.
Let me repeat, nobody like bezels. I'm dropping knowledge here.
Once they create a good enough palm rejection see people moving en masse away from heavily bezeled phones.
So . Tann Hauser and everyone else. STOP. Stop this useless. Discussion. You wont convince anyone who cant be convinced. Why are you doing this? What goals/aims you want to achieve? Dont you see that they [haters] are emotional vampires??? You will be exhausted and they will succeed and will laugh at you. STOP reacting. They will get you to their level and defeat you.

Its a discussion, a bit off topic I grant, but just a discussion none the less.
Get over it perhaps?
[deleted post]Afte reading your comment, this and that previous where you deny even arenas wording....
Im just wordless.
Sorry but you are right. I should be debating someone who knows some basics actually.
I am trying to understand whats the point of this discussion ? One side wants to convince others to their beliefs and opinions? If someone doesnt like bezels, dont waste your time and dont try to force him/her to change his/her mind. Etc. So many useless posts.

I think people will get used to what the market presents them with, but as there are those still today who long for legacy designs (pre-touch screen) and so will jump at say a key One for instance, so it will be with this.
Great points though.
kevin97, 15 May 2017Poor battery life, large bezels. No thanks ! Battery life is not poor at all . XZp SOT IS 8:15 hr it's excellent

Ergonomy is nested on how big the average person is which is mostly genetically determined. You can't wish a bigger hand, you can't wish bigger pants.
People prefer the smallest bezels possible as long as they don't come with drawbacks (useless aspect ratios, accidental touches and easy to break).
As they're fixing those , the bezeless look would become industry standard, a bit of how touchscreens became despite many people were insisting (back then) that physical buttons are better (no they're not, they take too much space from the screen).
The bezeless style can bring 5.5 inchers as small as the first smarphones. Phones that are both palm/pocket friendly and "information friendly". That's the holy grail that companies like Xiaomi, Samsung and LG are trying (yet -for the time being- failing) for.
