not just best phone of MWC but best phone of 2017.
note 8 probably just improve spec with S pen.
G6 not sd835.
chinese phones degrades after 3months.
XZ Premium best buy for 2017
BTW congrats for Sony and their Fan.
What happen if S8, iPhone 8, Mi 6, OP5, Mi Mix 2, and so joint in the race? XZP have a chance? Lets see which phone will win "Best Smartphone of 2017", and how many XZP will sell, and G6 also.
Who decides those awards? I can literally choose a random chinese phone and find it better for half the cost.
I mean those bezels are straight from 2000s, the specs are last year's, the camera is probably good, but most cameras are good nowadays , 4k is a gimmick that nobody is going to use because it's impossible to use it in such a small screen, the battery is pathetically low...
Really this company seems to have no direction, this phone is wholly imbalanced and ultimately impractical (bad ergonomy due to the sharp edges and extremely large frame, bad autonomy due to the low battery), who is dishing those awards I wonder.
Sachmo, 02 Mar 2017Hey that looks exactly like the Sony phone I had 5 years ago. Must just be a coincidence.And now its even better than your phone 5 yrs ago
Finally Sony gets the recognition for some great smart phones and by far the best ui in android.
S for Sony
Sony for Smart Choice
1.4K HDR display
2.first smartphone equipped with 835
3.dual stereo speakers, real improvement
4.Fantastic bezels, 5/6/7/8....
Don't forget XZ Premium is very expensive
Note7 owner, 02 Mar 2017Just shows you these awards never translate to actual sales. Worthless award...Well,actuall sales are the thing I want to talk with you.
Sure 3mil for a previous gen Premium,but they still are rocking as the day they were bought.
Btw,what's the feeling from Sammy guarantee when you buy the phone on black market?
Georgio, 03 Mar 2017I don't want thin bezels ; I want stereo speakers. It looks better than lg g6 or Samsung s8.Tiny stereo speakers that are simply worthless due to tiny size and so the audio quality is lacking. I have had 2 phones with stereo speakers (One M8 and Nexus 6), not really a thing I'd get a phone specially for.
Kobresia, 02 Mar 2017Well done SONY, well done! You make the best and the most beautiful phones. Yeah... if bezel count is the significant factor to win.
the bigger the better lol.
LG got stopped by Samsung owning the hoarding the Snapdragon 835 but Sony wasn't stopped! Can't wait to have this phone! I own a V20 now. I will surely buy this! Will be back with Sony again! :)

St Llv, 02 Mar 2017We need bigger bezels and smaller batteries Sony!!! Well done for the camera thoughThose bezels are stereo speakers!!! No go to sleep .
When it comes to material quality Sony Xperia is best for me. But the design of LG G6 is very pretty
People complain about bezels.
Check out Android Central. There is an article there written by a guy that kept a LG G6 for 3 days.
He says small bezels can be pretty inconvenient..
Bad grip too.
Funny seeing all the Fanboys crying because their beloved phones will never be a Sony. This year Sony took the crown. The s8 didn't make any noise on entrance. 3-4 days since release and this is the talk of the town. Since this is priced at a bargain I hope Sony redeems itself this year. That said im off to take photos on my Z5.
Well done, one other great year for sony, congratulations you deserve it
I agree with this. Although vertical bezels could be smaller and the battery larger. Let's see how it does in real life.
Black Russian, 02 Mar 2017"the next iPhone" I genuinely can't tell at this point if you are trolling or not. IPhone? I think you commented the wrong message :-P or do tell me where I mentioned iPhone?
We need bigger bezels and smaller batteries Sony!!!
Well done for the camera though
I like Sony, a lot! 1\3 of my phones were Sony, but i do like thin bezels more, esp as smartphones grow, i dont feel comfortable with the extra dimensions, unless it counts for smth, screen estate is the most important thing nowdays and carry a big phone with a relatively small thing is not my thing... In 2017 everybody will have a waterproof flagship with small bezels, except Sony, this is the feature i was hoping they would improve the most, how disappointing...
