Definitely no. First of all, it's a Sony, too small for my taste and it's still a Sony. No, just no. :-D As bad as Samsung (here we go with the must-have Samsung-namedrop).
If Sony put wireless charging in their high end phones, inc the XZ I would consider them over Samsung.
AnonD-578105, 09 Apr 2017I'd rather get something with a 4.1" display, possibly even smaller. I know I'm going to be wa... moreBuy the usual 5" and cover the top and bottom with tape or something lol.
This phone can hardly compete with the so called $400 flagships in the main areas lol.

Xiaomo the best👏👏👏
SONY, SAMSUNG, LG. Practiced prices absurd! Waiting for the Xiaomi MI6.
I'm not a camera bug but even if I were, I wouldn't pay the kind of money that Sony wants for their phones. I'm a Xiaomi fan boy, great value for money with more than good enough specs for most of their phones. Even the high end models are more reasonably priced than Sony, Samsung, Apple or LG.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2017Cant believe theres no "im going with s8" optionThe poll was about a specific Sony model not other brands, didn't you read it? If you'd included Samsung S8 as an option, why not half a dozen others too???
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2017Cant believe theres no "im going with s8" optionThat would be the "I'm looking at other brands" option (S8, G6, you name it).
Almost 50% voted looking at other brands. Its official. Nobody interested except those 12% voted 'sure thing'. Xzs doesnt have the wow factor that make buyers want to buy. Its pretty much a boring Pixel phone with some Sony features. Even the Z5 Premium from 2015 look more interesting and cheaper too.
I hope they improve the low-light camera performance on the XZ Premium using software trickery (a la Pixel HDR+).
I'd rather get something with a 4.1" display, possibly even smaller. I know I'm going to be waiting a long time, but I absolutely refuse to get anything bigger than 4.5", so for now I'll be sticking with my 4+ years old phone.
