The camera is one of the key buying points of the phones.
Xperia Xz Premium won Low light, on a tripod and Video quality - daylight(based on gmarena result).
with HDR Details on the XZP is slightly better than S8 ang G6 Colours are very good on the XZP, maybe because of the higher pixel count.
overall sony camera is the best amongst those two.

Its "Basic" screen mode has the most accurate color reproduction of all consumer electronic displays including TVs.
All of them are great. It's just that the S8 is on another level.

well i bought G6 for its distinct feature (UWA lens) which is incomparable to the other two because it is absent. Maybe you'd find something different in specific category that is to your liking ... It's basically all preferences.
I wouldn't buy S8 even if it won all category, as I see curved edge is a deal breaker for me. Nor do I need 960 fps and 4K display on XZP. I'd prefer taking wide angle image for landscape rather recording slow mo videos. Looking for a phone that suits me best is all. Maybe if people stop pushing their opinion towards others, discussion would get better

After many a days, found such an exhaustive review. The genuineness of the reviewer to bring out all the good points is praiseworthy. Seems an unbiased, true review. Hats off to the reviewer for such a review. The unending desire to bring forth the best in all the three mobiles, is evident till the last word. At one time I skipped the technicalities, thinking maybe the conclusion would be the final word to make me decide, but was forced to read the full content. Hats off!!!
Anonymous, 21 May 2017It is sad that the high end flagship is defeated by your so-called upper mid-ranger...And that so called upper midrange LG G6 won nothing here so who are you trying to fool?
Just buy the phone you like and don't bother to read phone comparisons online if you get hurt easily...
I have used samsung products and i dislike them because never had a good life but this year samsung finally recieved its wake up call.
My favourites sony and lg have also made great phones so no matter what you choose you will be satisfied this seems to be a great year for smartphones
Samsung fans, go buy the S8. Sony fans, go buy the XZP. Who needs these relentless, useless and pointless quarrels over something as insignificant as a phone? The choice of a product for personal use is a subjective and not entirely rational either. In the end it always comes to personal preferences and just as GSMA concluded, every one of the tested products satisfies a particular mixture of such needs and preferences. Yes, the S8 comes on top of these measurements most of the time but XZP and G6 have their strong sides as well. In my view, these comparisons usually only serve a limited role of confirming one's choice which has been already made. They provide just some additional info on the products stronger and weaker sides. E.g. Samsung users will figure out a way to use the uncomfortably placed fingerprint reader and Sony users will figure out the right manual settings of taking snaps in the dark. Stop this stupid hunt for the Holy Grail and the one and only truth. The world is interesting and beautiful exactly because its diverse and people are unique, including in terms of their consumer preferences.
Anonymous, 20 May 2017But probably OIS is not fast enough to work with Predictive Hybrid Autofocus or Predective Cap... moreOIS or "Optical Image Stabilization" has nothing to do with autofocus or with stored frames for fast moving scenes.
How can the galaxy S8 win in the design department. Yes it has that "futuristic" bezeless design, but at the expense of that awkwardly placed fingerprint sensor. also why do they ignore the fragility of the screen. and also the weird aspect ratio, which does not have any content that the screen could benefit from the "bezeless" design. they've only made the screen narrower and taller.
XZ Basemark OS2 score topped in the rev with 4127, here it is 3178.
That is a serious difference.
Antutu and some other benchs nstall is blocked on preview devices. How were they installed?
High tech reviewer, 21 May 2017no.. not at all... sony only won 1, and 3 of the tests were tie, but still s8 got more prefere... moreTied 9 = 53%
GS8 7 = 41%
XZP 1 = 6%
Yes, in this review Sam win but doesn't mean the other two are bad for flagship level cause the two still manage to tie or even give tough decision for the review
Stop hating, peace!!
-When it comes to deisgn its just personal choice and i would go with xz premium specially chrome version.
-Display is again something how people prefer.. Saturated or natural or any other way. I would say s8 might be little ahead than xz premium and g6 is not in the race.
- When it comes to speakers s8 has loudest but xz premium has the clearest sound and stereo speakers which give you a great experience. So again it depends on user's choice.
-Battery life is a little more on s8 but xz premium is equipped with qnovo which will give you longer life for your battery if you r planning to use your phone for coming 3-4 years.
-When it comes to cameras details are unmatchable on xz premium. Lowlight takes a blow but again a steady hand will bring back xz premium in lead. Hdr capabilities are again better on sony. When it comes to stabilisation ois is no match for sony's intelligent auto steady mode. Then comes colour reproduction which is again great and most natural on sony. ( the above mentioned points are not my opinion but what the above review said). And then the revolutionary 960fps on sony makes sony a clear winner in camera.
So for me sony is the best but again if you are someone who are after that gorgeous but fragile infinity display go for s8 but again g6 is nowhere in the competition of the above two.
