AnonD-505842, 27 Feb 2017lol look at the camera sensor!! 4k HDR display first ever on a smartphone..haters gonna hate lol!Well Zuk Z2 pro had 960 fps slow mo for a year.Lets hope this one isnt like that
The XZs is just for a few countries. Japan is one of them.
It is like a special edition.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017What's even more surprising is that Sony is able to incorporate the mighty 835 to the XZ Premi... moreWell sammy has two or three to spare.Since thats the total sales volume of sony flagships,it was smooth sailing for sony
Nice! I want a tube radio in the top bezel and a cassette deck in the lower one thx sony!
Kobresia, 27 Feb 2017My father bought galaxy s7 few weeks ago. What an ugly phone. And I didnt know samsung has one... moreYes right the first thing that touches the surface when you put your Galaxy on,is the camera,the design is deprived from PINOKIO'S NOSE
If you arguing bezels you have to be wise enough to consider bezels in S7 edge from where the display starts to curve ( i mean the whole curve area of display is bezel itself) Cuz no one can claim that that area of the display has any use,you can't have a useful touch there
AnonD-234961, 27 Feb 2017Premium bezels. Hilarious looks for 2017...Still looks better than the ugly bulky s8 lol..Xperia is a masterpiece
Everyone is moaning about Sony putting too large bezels on their smartphones when they forget to realize those amazing dual front-facing stereo speakers and incredibly superior 1/2.3" sensor (Samsung is still at 1/2.5", considerably smaller still than Sony 4 YEARS IN A ROW). If Samsung is to put these, I doubt they'll even manage to put their dual curved edge screens and manage that >75% STB ratio, or even at least 70%
RaghavaZ, 27 Feb 2017What stuffs those bezels hold? S8's or Note7's or even S7's top bezel got an extra iris scanne... moreIris scanner is considerably smaller in comparison to REAL DUAL FRONT-FACING STEREO SPEAKERS and LARGE 1/2.3" SENSOR (in which Samsung is still left behind 4 years in a row). Yep, caps locked for you to realize it :D
My father bought galaxy s7 few weeks ago. What an ugly phone. And I didnt know samsung has one speaker only and the camera lens is out from the phone. Samsung should change their design department. When I look my xperia Z2 it is simply beautiful.
This phone and the whole new batch of phones is a joke! There is no improvement, apart from small incremental enhancements when what is WANTED and NEEDED is giant leaps in tech. WTF people, what are you (not) doing? This is a total waste of time. Take us to the next generation, not this small changes crap, often they're not even improvements, just different!! That is NOT what the market wants.
RaghavaZ, 27 Feb 2017What stuffs those bezels hold? S8's or Note7's or even S7's top bezel got an extra iris scanne... moreAs always, mobile teardown with insight in engineering solutions.is your friend.
There was never any spare room or void space in any Xperia device teardown....
So go check what is actually behind the bezels.
If one wants a bigger screen in same format....one should expect approximately lower batter to screen ratio....thus worse batterylife.
I dont mind thicker phones, but trends today are quite nonsense with about 8 mm thickness....and theres just as much room inside for a size dependant battery. You actually cant squeeze more maHs in less volume, if not using some other compositions.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017LG flagship no sd834 s8 same specs. sd835,4gb ram, not to mention exynos version weak gpu. ... moreLol, exynos weak GPU? If they are really using the G71 MP20 as rumored then it will be the most powerful GPU in the market...
4k hdr, great camera and such an attractive design.. man this thing is such a beauty.
Let's hope it will be as good as it sounds.
congratulations to sony though for this innovating camera.
This looks great! Lets hope they actually get it right this time! It looks like they are trying again so hopefully they will actually be available in multiple regions like US.
Can't wait for the reviews. The camera and display sound amazing but have to wait for real life details. If they got the speakers, camera, and battery right and hopefully world wide release this will be mine!
Tann Hauser, 27 Feb 2017Aint defending nothing.
You like that extra small bezels. Go for it. Just remeber what I said... moremeanwhile with a lot of the sony ones... especially a little further back in the z line the glass breaks so easily. Cracks so easily even in pockets.
And every single Z1, z2, z3, and such you look up...One tiny little hair line crack and youre lucky if any part of the touch screen even works anymore.
Sorry it's just facts. Ones you the biggest sony fan and trll will deny of course.
I'm still think about getting this phone, but above any other phone a screen protector and full coverage case are a must before I even get the phone itself.
