An excellent phone (flagship), I really like its specs, features, innovations, etc. But ohh my God the bezels are toooo too much. Hopefully Sony will finally take example (or whatever) from all the phones such as: (Sharp...), Mi Mix, G6, S8 duo, the newly launched Essential PH-1, even a lot of quite small/new Chinese companies with almost bezel-less models, and they are increasing rapidly. Plus the upcoming V30 & Note 8, and much more will follow. So hopefully Sony will start working really hard on those really huge bezels and so AT LEAST for next year they'll keep on the same right track/philosophy, etc, as very high-end specs, features, etc. But at the same time have an aesthetically beautiful flagship phone at a parallel level with the others, more modern (trendy, etc). And in fact it's not just to follow or for show or something like that, but just for the simple reason that in fact it is much better to have more screen-to-body ratio than not. It definitely doesn't make any sense to have a huge phone but than with a small display, it's absolutely non sense. So let's hope that at least next year's XZ Premium (2 or so?) Will be really a more complete flagship to compete, etc.

And the camera shut down is because of fake overheating message.

garalao, 28 May 2017Can this xz premium beat the s8plus ? In term of speed performance , camera and battery life ?... moreThere are videos on youtube showing the difference in performance. The xperia xz premium beats the s8/s8+ for speed in every tests on web browsing, loading up apps etc. XZ premium also has a better benchmark score. Look up phonebattles on youtube.
Camera produces more natural shots colour-wise on the xz premium but not a lot to choose between both. But the front facing camera is a lot better on the xz premium if you are in to selfies.
XZ premium is optimised well to handle a full day of battery for whatever you chuck at it.
The display speaks for itself.... nothing out there can beat xz premiums 4k HDR.
Anonymous, 28 May 201719MP?? Are you having a laugh?Are you one of these people that thinks more megapixel = better quality? That is not true. The galaxy s8 and iphone 7 have much lower mexapixels, around 12/14mp I think, but they do a good job.
I know sony have had 23mp on the previous phones, but they have made each megapixels larger in this phone which helps with low-light shots and quality and this phone has a much better camera because of it. This is how apple and samsung also does it.. each megapixel is larger.
garalao, 28 May 2017Can this xz premium beat the s8plus ? In term of speed performance , camera and battery life ?... morePreety much Xperia UI is lighter and more sleek than touchwiz,to the point it behave like stock android(plus all the Sony goodies inside).
Same SoC,and every other half-decent optimised android is faster than Samsung' one,let alone Sony.
Can this xz premium beat the s8plus ? In term of speed performance , camera and battery life ? Which one is better ?
Having this s8plus since launched , I really like the device , great battery life , nice camera and beautiful display .
Anonymous, 27 May 2017Very much doubt if they added polycarbonate at the sides for extra protection. If you ask me, ... moreNope, this time around, it's nylon instead of polycarbonate
And some people will still point out it as plastic

You are true. RGBS IR sensor makes colors really natural and other phones don't have such a feature.
And finally I am now certain that the XZ Premium is the best snaper in outside and sunlight (both direct and indirect).

I don't think so. But I guess there is a metal plate between screen and battery as usual. But not as solid as others
