My Z3 still holds up to most new phones and people still wow at the display - especially when I "accidentally" drop it in a sink full of water, hehe. I'll be getting the new XZ. Why? Because it's a top phone, looks great, and well, everyone else has got iPhones or Samsungs.

Since you're clearly a Sony fanboy you can easily convince yourself otherwise. Which is fine for you, but non-fanboys will tell you otherwise. Even your example just now relied on impressions, unlike the objective measurement that I provided. So you only helped prove my point.
PS. AA doesn't even have a review of the xperia xz.
And the sRGB benchmark is different. This is the standard most consumer content uses, this is the definitive and only way to measure colour accuracy. And Sony always does so poorly on it while fanboys like you pretend it's accurate for some reason.
Always the same hating fanboys clogging sony threads.
Give it a rest already, get a freakin life.
Let people buy, use and enjoy sony devices in peace.

What makes you so sure they aren't biased? Inconsistent results across all so called "credible" tech sites, can you explain why?
Reviewers at Stuff complain the display of the XZ is too vibrant. However in AA, they complain the display isn't as vibrant as the one in S7.
No one gives a dime about these display benchmarks. I'm more interested in side by side comparisons.
So in short I'm just telling don't base your comments just by getting false info from biased reviewers. Go compare them side by side IRL.
zikry, 05 Oct 2016Why not compare Galaxy S7 and sony XZ with iphone 7 plusSay xz and iPhone 7plus, but galaxy s7 crap.

If u buy us version instead of international version (dual sim) u can easily Enable Fingerprint Scanner by flashing an international ROM via Flashtools !

As far as I'm concerned, if they can't handle the GSMA reviews then they must go comment / live on 'those' sites. We will keep up the fight, and so will all the other superior brands. GSMA keep up the good work ;)

"Color reproduction is not great, though. The average DeltaE of 5.8 is decent, but there is a pronounced blue cast to white and gray. Other than that, out of the primaries, green is off the most (DeltaE around 10), and cyan is far from the truth as well."
Here is what the s7 edge says
"Color accuracy of the screen is top notch as long as you opt for the Basic display mode. The other available modes make colors pop but they are nowhere near as color accurate as Basic (Average DeltaE of 0.8 and Max DeltaE of 1.5). "
Can you see the difference? Can you see that Samsung's is close to 0 (perfect) and Sony is far away from that? These numbers aren't debatable. It is a simple fact that Sony's displays are very inaccurate.
I don't think people in the U.S. are going to pay $700 for a phone with no fingerprint scanner.

Sony display is more accurate than Samsung either it TV or phone. But Samsung display is more vivid. Samsung display can't show some scene that sony display can show.

Sony has the default camera setting at 12mp so obviously they don't care. And they have always had the same camera resolution, so no reason that means anything.
Objectively measured, Sony's display is less accurate than amoled. So stop being such a shameless fanboy. It is the worse of any flagship in the last few years. Stop saying it is accurate when it has been proven to be very inaccurate.
The software is worse, has worse support, doesn't have google's new features, doesn't have free unlimited cloud storage.
The xz is more expensive. And the screen to display ratio is less than 2% better for the regular version. The xl has a better screen to display ratio than the xz.
