Even the iPhone 8 will have thin bezels. Bezelless smartphones are the future. Samsung are just ahead of everyone else.
Not that sony need defending but this xz premium is simply a jewel. i mean, it looks like one of those things you find in treasure chests. This phone is simply incredible in everything including design and only those that don't understand uniqueness and class will complain about bezels. speaking of bezels, the google pixel and iphones are still the king of bezel. Xperia's only appear to have more bezels because of the rectangular no-curvature design sony uses. If you use your imagination to add curves to these xperia's like google pixel, iphone etc have then u'll see that the bezels of this phone is perfectly acceptable. Besides there are front facing speakers occupying those front anyway. It think XZ premium is easily the best phone 2017

You dont have to trust me, buy it and see for yourself the unpracticality galore.

They got fingerprint scanner ever since Z5, but all of them are being disabled when they enter/(selling in) the US ( NA).
AnonD-635604, 27 Feb 2017Are you shaman that can know the future?It's not hard to predict what Sony will do in the future, that is if they're still around. Sony are always a few years lagging behind other smartphone manufacturers.
This will be a nice phone just like most Sonys, but for some reason Sony is so expensive with nothing to justify the price over LG or Samsung.
Or at least, that is the case here in South Africa.

So will you be using fp scanner or iris one?
One is to use, other is just an ... moreThere's nothing to use to begin with! Fingerprint scanner don't work on the US (NA) version. It is disabled by default to begin with. And there isn't Iris in any of the xperia phones!
And my point is if the fingerprint thingy won't work ( or enable, cause it is disabled by default) then why not choose Iris eyes scanner!!!!!

So nothing wrong in having an iris scanner, even if it's not yet useful.
You are absolutely wrong in terms of price comparison. S7 edge still has a higher price tag than the xperia xz. you have to pay premium for the premium otherwise there is Oneplus 3T.
AnonD-27765, 27 Feb 2017Iris scanner will come to Sony Xperia in 2022. Are you shaman that can know the future?
All website will use 8mp during their reviews anyway..
Sony should get rid of it..
Set 12mp as lower resolution possible.

AnonD-648215, 27 Feb 2017Agreed, the reason why I'd prefer S7 over S7 edge anyday!The S7 edge is the most compact 5.5-inch smartphone. I can't believe such a small thin smartphone has such a large battery whereas Sony can't even fit a large enough battery for their humungous phones.
