Sincerely, Sony Xperia XZ Premium can do everything that S8/S8+ can + 960fps slow motion video, has a 4K HDR panel and stereo speakers.
I always love sony's brick design. Even with it's thick top and bottom bezels make this smartphone tougher than the curved display. The Sony's camera, the speaker is outstanding.. No wonder if sony leading the polling. For me s8 just a useless gimmick for their 'infinity display'. For 18:9 display ratio, I prefer G6 for it's Dolby Vision Display.
if Sony is so great and also loved by people i wonder why it manages to sell the least amount of smartphones? Even lg, Huawei sells more.
may be because of same boring design or poor high megapixel camera which shows noise even in broad daylight at 50 iso ?

So you can tell the future and you're just dumb? Which one?
Yeah this poll is pretty much useless, but just to excite certain fanboys. Xperia XZ Premium is not even out yet and you get fanboys saying it's the best while other brand sucks. No one knows the battery life, performance or camera quality. See how sad that sounds? It's like the people here in gsmarena are mostly teenagers.
Rather than talking about sony and samsung . Isnt it better to bombared htc ? I dont think any other company as overprice as htc have done with their phone
Tann Hauser, 23 Apr 2017Seems people like bezel and functionality more over gimmicky wide screens in the end. XZ Pr... moreYou should put some instead of seems. It's more appropriate. How does opinion of like 20-25k people tells us about market trends. In real world the sales of phones are in terms of millions not thousands. The survey represents less than 1% of people actually buying these devices
Xperia flagships are always well built, solid, durable.
I've been using Z3 for more than two years, never failed.. still battery lasts for a full day with moderate usage.
I hope my upgrade will be to XZ Premium. Waiting for a true user experience of super slow motion and 4K.
!!Great Job Sony!!
That best phone thing couldn't be more meaningless really. It almost entirely based on a phone's looks! Jeez! Look at the S8 reviews, probably the laggiest phone out there at the moment, and people simply don't care about that. Obviously Android users don't care much about fluid, consistent performance but come on!
XZ Premium has at least stock based android to start with. Cumulative dumbness of most users is whats keeping Samsung's business to flourish like this, top notch hardware company given but gotta criticise their software as much as they can at first place forcing them to move away from it!
PrasadPhony, 23 Apr 2017Sony is a joke in the mobile market. Overpriced and always a 6 months delay in launching their... moreLet's talk logic here.
XZ Premium costs $699 USD, you can preorder 1 now from Clove.co.uk
S8+ costs $850 USD
So switching 4k screen to infinity screen costs about $150usd. All other specs are pretty much the same, Samsung also uses Sony camera module. Maybe it is worth it for you but not for me.
Also, I try out the S8+. The thing is most of the apps and contents are presented in 16:10 ratio. Because S8+ are 16:9 ratio, so they leave a black area on two sides. So it is no different then the bezel on xz premium. Maybe developers will adopt the new ratio on S8 screen, but I don't think it will be main stream in this product life cycle.
So for this round, I think xz Premium is a better bargain.
Finally eyes are been cleared. The reign of gimmicks is comming to an end. Welcome to reality people...
Sony is the best in terms of research and development this spring, but the only thing they can do now is go to a new design. I think we will see it at the IFA2017 fair or 2018.
sony pls decrease bazel size .. your phone are the best phone but this design is a little old and can t count against s8 and g6 new language design.
jesse.clark, 23 Apr 2017Let's see how many of these Xperia voters will actually buy the phone, I mean when it's about ... more...SONY far superior brand than samsung. Its like comparing the ORIGINAL versus the copier (samsung isGREATEST COPIER)... My money always go to innovator, no for copier...
