Previously I have absolutely hammered Samsung about no SD cards on GN5, only 16/32GB internal, GN7 battery issues, bloatware, fragile devices etc etc (search my comments).
If i was a Sony fan I'd be hammering them (not blindly defending them) about the poor low light camera test, thick bezels, average sunlight performance and moderate battery life on the XZP. If Sony fans don't complain about obvious shortcomings, nothing changes and if Sony doesn't change they will die a slow death.

Even after Including the shipping costs, the total amount you pay will be lesser than US market price. So, price will be low and also fingerprint scanner will be available. Win win.

Sucksung, 13 May 2017Such hypocrisy! Knowing your Samsung also runs in 1080p by defaultsYes when you take it out of the box it's set to 1080 , so you too tick high res , and job is done unlike the xzp that is 1080 unless your lucky enough to find some hi res content just like the z5p.
LOL. Another upset Sony fan. Sony finally released a half decent device but Sony fans are still too upset to recognise its shortcomings. Like bad low light performance and mediocre battery life. And it's okay to like a device despite it having a worse display and screen to body ratio than the s8, you don't have to go out of your way to deny it. It's a decent device despite its weaknesses.

Jason Melling, 13 May 2017Don't care about the fingerprint scanner as nobody uses it anyway. Sony's UI is simply boring,... moreyeah.. the ui is too booring. latest version of touchwiz or graceui or samsung ui is the best
Plz do watch reviews of this phone on youtube..
Their you will get a clear idea about how powerful this device is..
SONY is Master in Screen Display may it b a TV or Phone.
Those who are doubting here about the screen, I feel pity for their knowledge.
Yeah, Sony should reduce the upper and lower bezel but the given design is nevertheless than Beautiful..
Once Again SONY delivers QUALITY...!
Don't care about the fingerprint scanner as nobody uses it anyway. Sony's UI is simply boring, they need to fix it up. Even the available themes are boring, same ol thing from Sony.
Jesse Clark, 13 May 2017So if you aren't watching 4k videos, your phone is just full HD all the time?? I mean really S... moreYou do know that in those small screens there is no difference between 1080p and QHD, right? I mean you have to get close than 20cm to see any difference but at that distance you get cross eyed anyway so it's not practical and nobody does it.
Also S8 is not a real QHD+. Due to the subpixel rendering you actually get the sharpness of a ~1300p screen.
Lastly this phone's screen is 4k in fact so you don't actually lose any smoothness in the image due to the lower resolution.
But I agree with you. 4k for movies is I'll adviced. It should have been 1080p there too, the difference is too small to matter. They should had enabled 4k during VR and VR alone ... Nowhere else does it make any sense. As always Sony messed that part once again...
The only thing which resist me for buying this phone is screen
Even i can't able to use it as a qhd for MY normal uses i have to be with 1080p only
If this is done that i can use whd res. In it for normal use then i am one step closer in getting this phone.
