Sonu4678, 01 May 2017Well, Samsung actually sells so it's explainable but Sony? Apparently everyone loves Sony but ... morethat's because sony's users don't have to buy new phone every year - that ones, who claim they do, are lying or bought fake phone - I know many sony users who are using their phones for years (I'm using 5 years old xperia S, and also have a friend with xperia arc s - it works just like the new one), but I don't know anybody who still use galaxy S2 or G2
I can say XZ Premium is great
but s8 kill XZ already so?
im gonna buy the G6 since this device is sexy like my S7 edge Samsung phone.

sony xzp is definitely amazing. But I wanna wait for Sony IFA for the 5.2 inch phone wiht 835

I always believe in Sony, and hope Sony try hard more for its smart phone

It is very sturdy, I can image the CGG5 will make it even better. FYI everything must have it clue, just a like a sturdy phone must have some weight, if it is cheap material is will be more in plastic and fragility (don't dreaming lighter because they use more of the titanium, don't dreaming please.)
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017True, but the Explosive7 fiasco did not affect S8's sales. S8 is doing better than S7 when it ... moreThats what Samsung keeps telling us... but you seriously believe that?
They tell same stories every year, yet end numbers keep telling a different story all together... overall sales down, including 17% drop in their flagship portfolio sales.
Its just Sammy marketing, those stories about better preorders, better than expected demand, etc...
I always believe in Sony, and hope Sony try hard more for its smart phone
jesse.clark, 25 Apr 2017That's what I'm saying, it got little better slo mo videos but S8 can also record very good sl... moreEverything except 960fps video, sound from two speakers, and display 4k pixels. But yeah besides these little details it can do anything.
Can it set a house on fire as well? :)
DenisXD, 25 Apr 2017XZ premium can do 960fps video, has stereo speakers, a more durable design, a 4k display and a... moreThat's what I'm saying, it got little better slo mo videos but S8 can also record very good slo mo, slo mo videos are not common and not a everyday thing, Samsung doesn't have stereo speakers but it still got very nice speaker. It has much better display than Xperia because it's a curved super amoled perfect blacks display. But things I mentioned, MST payments, fast wireless charging and other things I mentioned in my previous comment are impossible for Xperia. So yeah it can't even do half of the things the S8 can while S8 can do everything.
If Samsung won all the Fanboys will be like Samsung deserves it..best in every category blablabla..but God forbid Sony, HTC, LG, Huawei or other brands win, the world ends. I have news for You! Samsung hasn't innovated anything recently. For those who say 4k is not necessary for us Bixby or that stupid eye xray is not necessary. If anything the eye scanner is present in devices pre 2014. Slow MO video is super fun while doing anything. The predicted auto focus shoots before you click the shutter and an all new camera. Sony works hard to innovate they just don't sit on their bums knowing people will buy anything they release like even a bomb in the shape of a phone.
Romie Lee, 25 Apr 2017You clearly didn't get my point there as a respond to your illogical view or you just lack of ... moreI clearly understood what you said. You are calling me lazy by not providing support for your claim. Lame excuse. Of course, I won't believe it because it is false. Of course, this is the poll Sony won but you said Sony always wins. You are obviously insinuating. I have been reading articles here since 2010. Everyone here is making a point but some are pointless because they can not support their claim. Don't spread lies dude.
Another One, 25 Apr 2017"samsung is KING of android smartphones" That king can be dethrone by other companies(Huawei ... moreActually Nokia used to be the longest crowned back then and they almost no competition. Competition rise and then they collapsed! You may right about it, But I doubt that Apple ever been crowned as king of smartphone world base on my knowledge at least. They do at tablet category. But overall I just don't think so.

That king can be dethrone by other companies(Huawei maybe?)Look what happen to Apple,it has been defeated by Samsung.And Samsung can be defeated by other companies in the future,mark my word.maybe samsung fanboys will be the next generation of apple fanboys.The king can't stay long bro,just like human.
dirknelson, 25 Apr 2017Can you give some proof that Sony wins every poll gsm had? Common sense dude, voters here don'... moreYou clearly didn't get my point there as a respond to your illogical view or you just lack of reading comprehension. As you asked for proor of my claim, why would not you just do it for yourself then since you are too lazy about it? You know how deep to seach just for it when it was too many of it and most of it are years ago already? Isn't this latest poll is one of a proof? Obviously you are new in this site. They make poll I remember since Galaxy S3/iPhone5 etc. it's up to you if you believe me or not. Regardless of your notion about I'm crying on this poll huh? I don't get anything here so why would I? I just made some point and you responded that I'm crying for something is hilarious.
Romie Lee, 25 Apr 2017Then how could Sony always wins in every poll in this site? I'm here since 2008 and GSMArena m... moreThey didn't win every poll in the past; they just have to win the trust of true customers by doing what they have been doing in the past 6-7 yrs. Now that they have perfected the xperia, things are beginning to change and paying off for Sony's hard work.
jesse.clark, 24 Apr 2017There's nothing in the world an Xperia XZ premium can do but Samsung Galaxy S8 can't but there... moreXZ premium can do 960fps video, has stereo speakers, a more durable design, a 4k display and a gorgeous chrome option. It also won the award of the best phone in the mobile event of 2017. Get real, it's a great phone kiddo.
XZ does and has things s8 doesn't, so do your homework and come again.
jesse.clark, 24 Apr 2017Yeah curved display over stereo speakers is a good deal, I never liked the apple idea of dual ... morecurved display that is seriously fragile from the drop tests I watched. If it falls you can bet it will fall at the back or front glass because as you say with such passion, it's curved.
I never been fond of this unpractical trend anyway, it's ugly to look at too.
I also repeat that it's NOT a complete package without stereo speakers and durable design, so ill pass. It doesn't worth that money. XZ premium is a better deal for me.
