Lex79, 27 Feb 2016Hey ICE,
First, I'd advise you not get into a discussion with Tann Hauser, there's nothing ... moreNo worries mate. I'm having a laugh regardless. It's fun to see what they can come up with (like thinking I'm 3 different people using different nicknames - like I can be in 3 different countries at the same time, hint : encoded location ID is not the same between the co-accused names, very intelligent that was).
Anyway, we can draw a strong conclusion between the SD820 and it's Exynos counterpart in the S6 (Exynos 7420). The Exynos 8890 (S7) will be even better. As I mentioned before, there are benchmarks out already. I haven't got much hope for power and heat efficiency in the XP, although the metal body might help.
The camera is arguably the same as in the Z5 which gets this review statement from gsma : "Sony's new 23MP sensor shows great promise. But regardless of how powerful the hardware is, the camera image quality is still susceptible to recurring issues such as corner softness, high levels of noise and watercolor like effect on fine repetitive detail such as walls, foliage or grass." "The dynamic range is disappointing though and you may have to switch to HDR more often than usual."
What I do like about the camera though is the wide FOV.
Unlike fanboys I don't just thumb suck stuff ;)
It's not like I hate Sony.

There are some concerns surrounding power efficiency and GPU producing too much heat. Maybe the metal body of the XP is there to act as a heat sink (apart from aesthetics)?

Yhien041715, 29 Feb 2016Dude I beg to disagree with you. Especially the motherboard logic board part, it's not Samsu... moreMSM8974 is Snapdragon 800's part number, not the motherboard.
The motherboard model no. For my Moto G is XT1039, the model number. And my Z1C's motherboard model no. Is D5503.
So for Z2 it'll be D6502/ or some thing.
How on earth will Samsung make motherboards for others... Lol.
Huge bezels, thick, heavy AND a relatively small battery. I was hoping to go with sony if they improved on form factor and screen to body ratio, but this is a huge regression on all fronts for no good reason. It seems like everything was sacrificed.
I thinks this ia an.octa core mobile..bt gsmarena mention about 2 dual cores only...can some one explaing that???and this is a mobile with SD820..so every one expect 4k recording on this mobile..but i dont think that feature is on this mobile..at least it cant record 1080p@60fps ...(according to gsmarna)))my quection is Y???
sony is not alert what is the smartphone trend these days. 2016 high end phones should be come with usb type C. it's so lame this beast comes with microusb v2.0 only. and absolutely with overprice price tag. They also can't catch up the market right now. there are numerous manufacturers offer high spec phones with reasonable price. Goodbye sony, you silently dig your own grave.

Show us some proof.

very awful display for this price,very low eMMC (rom or hard) for this price very low battery but 1 thing is very big and that I BEZEL
Avan Dr, 28 Feb 2016Yes, its bcz of it price. Btw, I still dont get why Sony phones are always too pricey.
First ... moreYes, Sony phones are always too pricey....Its because Sony only makes the camera sensor, everything else is outsourced, including assembly to third parties. Sony is trying to survive on its name, but the Sony name doesn't mean anything anymore.
Samsung supplies approx 30% of Sony mobile parts, including motherboard, Ram etc...The glory days for Sony are long gone and the competition has passed Sony about a decade ago.
