AnonD-92238, 05 Mar 2017Helio p20 is powerful?!
Now I've seen ​everything!Yes compared to the Snapdragon 430 in Nokia 5 and Motorola G5 the Helio P20 in Xperia XA1 is more powerful chipset.
Build upon 16mm manufacturing process vs 28mm on Snapdragon 430.
Higher clock speed up to 2.3GHz vs 1.4GHz.
Faster LTE Cat 6 vs Cat 4.
Support LPDDR4 vs LPDDR3.
More powerful GPU 61.2 GFlops vs 48.6 GFlops.
Support higher resolution photo, video recording and playback up to 24MP and 4K@30fps vs 21MP and 1080@30fps.
So there you go the reason why P20 in Xperia XA1 is more powerful chipset than the Snapdragon 430 in Moto G5 and Nokia 5.
AnonD-92238, 05 Mar 2017Both are same level on paper, in real world performance it's not.P20 more powerful than sd625 both on paper and benchmark,
Though P20 only 16nm while sd625 is 14nm so the sd625 still win for efficiency.

Xperia xz destroy lg g6 and p10.
Best cpu and GPU
Front Speakers stereo 4w
64 gigas rom.
Best front camera.
Hi res sound.
Gorilla glass 5.
finally lg also sealed in their battery..afaik moto x mods gave the best way to battle the problem of sealed in battery as well as swapping batteries like killing 2 birds with one stone..i know totally off topic
Lg g6 might get voted as the best smartphone of MWC but lg phones have been under rated most of the times.
Actually I wonder what some see in g6, that got poor camera chip/s, older processor for that money, there is also that regional unavailability thing(for hi res audio). XZP brings new camera chip, best processor, also screen to envy. It's also not missing anything abroad(in most coyntries) and is available everywhere. They got it right even in xa1, to give it such powerful camera. There is also hope for Nokia if they make exciting new product, bringing something like new face for phones, creating new category of devices, for now they got fans, hope it last.
AnonD-92238, 05 Mar 2017I voted for p10 plus. 2017 grade processor (sd835 too is, but Xperia will not be available in ... moreThe Kirin 960 powering the P10 plus was actually released back in 2016 inside the mate 9. Furthermore, the 960 is a powerful chipset but yet is still on the same level as SD 821. Theoretically, the 960 should be more powerful as the A73 cores inside it are more powerful than Kryo cores, it is better than the 821 in multicore processing (because it has 4 extra cores) but its GPU though cannot beat the adreno 540. Nevertheless, despite the existence of a Kirin 960 powered handset, the highest benchmark scores are still held by OnePlus 3T, a SD 821 powered phone. Therefore, there is no doubt that the 960 is a very powerful chipset, but I wouldn't exactly call it "2017 grade", especially with the Exynos 8895 and SD 835 coming soon.
Xperia XZ Premium is not Flagship.
Just like with Z5 Premium it would be just exclusive phone so hard to find that you would probably have more chance to find 1000$ on the street than this phone.
Even today you have better chance to find brand new Mi Mix than Z5 Premium, and we talk about XZ Premium that is not only not available yet, but it will be sold after summer, and probably not available +3000 luck in your stats :/

Sony Xperia XZ Premium ftw! Thought I'd love the bezels to get slimmed down though.
