You are absolutely wrong. I own a S7 and it will record 4K continuously or until the memory card is full. Without any sign of overheating. And Exynos runs cooler than Snapdragon 820 CPU. My previous Z5 would shut down after 6 mins, so I sold that useless phone.
Here is gsmarenas recent camera phone shootout between current flagship phones.

Trever, 23 Feb 2017Got my XZ platinum today, really happy. Got strings of software/system updates the moment I co... moreCheers man platinum so beautiful but all the colors look very nice I hear it changes color depending on how the light reflects
mischa, 23 Feb 2017On my Samsung Galaxy S7, I can record 4k video continuously until the internal memory runs out... moreYou are definitely wrong, I have tested the s7edge of my sister it does report overheat and shutdown the camera after almost 1 hour, Note that it is exynos for sure.
Got my XZ platinum today, really happy. Got strings of software/system updates the moment I connected Wi-Fi, camera is amazing in fact the best I came across in a smartphone with natural colors. Still so much to explore. Will update soon.
For people praising the S7, stay happy with your gadget and we're highly satisfied with our XZ, as simple as that.

Anonymous, 19 Feb 2017I agree..those biased review sites doesn't even completely explore xperia phones of its full p... moreIt's not only tech review sites that thrash Sony Xperia XZ for being a lacklustre overpriced phone but even video reviews and comparisons made by freelance and regular users on youtube. XZ is great on its own right. But it just pales in comparison to other flagship smartphones. It would have never garnered all the negative reviews if it was marketed as a midrange smartphone and priced not more than 500 dollars. For a smartphone that costs more than the Galaxy S7 which offers more features and is better in every way, XZ is just not worth it and deserves all the lashings it is getting.
Chap1, 22 Feb 2017Both are great,but if u really want a bigger screen,5.7 inches and much better sound for liste... moreVery laggy? This isn't 2012 anymore. 2016 Galaxy phones especially the S series are super fast both in benchmarks and real-world performance. Go watch speed comparison tests between S7 and other flagship smartphones on youtube especially XZ. XZ takes forever to boot up. S7 has the fastest booting time only bested by the iPhone 7. Opening, loading and switching apps on the S7 are almost instantaneous.
Does having dual sim drains more battery? Also for thos people who has dual sim if there is an issue regarding no signal on both network? Im not sure if i go for single sim or dual.
Ali Bashir, 22 Feb 2017Xz for almost everything except the volume speakers. People hold the htc10 as having the best in headphone listening experience of any other smartphone and people say the xz has not improved audio quality since the z3 and many complain about lack of loudness both in headphone and speaker
Chap1, 22 Feb 2017Both are great,but if u really want a bigger screen,5.7 inches and much better sound for liste... moreLove how all the reviewers tout the s7 as the best phone ever made absolutely flawless and generally put it leagues ahead of everything else and claim the software is smoother and much improved.
I don't buy it for a second
Thiru2You, 22 Feb 2017Which phone is best Sony Xperia XZ or HTC 10.?Xz for almost everything except the volume speakers.
It is a good mobile but one thing disqualify it at all, the sound is barely audible.
Thiru2You, 22 Feb 2017Which phone is best Sony Xperia XZ or HTC 10.?XZ hands down.
Chap1, 22 Feb 2017Both are great,but if u really want a bigger screen,5.7 inches and much better sound for liste... moreYes. I've used many of them. But Sony and HTC are the best and smooth. My S6 Edge lags sometimes. My Sony Z3 never lag.
