This phone looks so hideous imo. The bezel are so terrible! I'm so done with Sony typical design language it never change. I see a lot of Chinese crap better than this.
It's a Deepsea Black color with lighting affecting the color shade. Looks beautiful though - would love to see this in the green and gold shade of Z5, Copper Gold shade of Z3/Z3+, red and yellow shade of Z5 Compact, blue shade of XZ, purple shade of Z2, and maybe introduce a new color trend like an Orange shade or something. I suspect any color would look really gorgeous on the XZ Premium
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2017if only sony could cut those bezels.. %50 reduction in top bezel and %50 reduction in bottom bezel! In near future, XZ Premium 2 maybe

It was like Xiaomi grabbed some old Xperia Z shells and tweaked it a little.
Dude if you are running low app like facebook that not required big Graphics ofcourse it will RUN smooth and if you compare the price. look at the material uses first., SONY Xperia XZ Premium the only phone that run 4k display with 800ppi means, the image you saw or video is very crisp its like you are watching on 40' monitor, and Sony got the 960fps video record that your phone only has 30fps, look at that GAP. and the processor use is the latest snapdragon. with latest screen protection...

Z5's 4K was basically through software, whilst XZ Premium's is through hardware. It's ACTUAL 4K. We'll wait for reviews."
What if I say it was also actual 4k only limited to 1080 through software coz 810
Atleast check gsma review of the device before posting such stuff
Would rather pick up G6. Screen and speakers are good but those bezels are too much.

They need to change the looks next time to attract more customers. Even some chinese phones looks more beautiful...
SZ Tadir, 27 Apr 2017Is chrome blue color an option?!! Its not stated anywhere but the thumbnail image is blue!!! ... moreI think it's the reflection of the sky. Luminous Blue should of been an option instead of the ugly Bronze Pink

Yes I remember the Z5 Premium. The XZ Premium is different. Z5's 4K was basically through software, whilst XZ Premium's is through hardware. It's ACTUAL 4K. We'll wait for reviews. :)
"Xperia UI i dont even know what it is callled is so dull in comparison."
I wouldn't say that the Xperia UI is "dull", it's just closer to STOCK Android.
With the design point, I tried to differentiate BEAUTIFUL from FUTURISTIC. Because, yes, I know the S8 looks f**king GORGEOUS, but if you really take a look at the XZ Premium design you can really appreciate what Sony is trying to do. It's so unique and it just looks so... premium (no pun intended XD). In case you were wondering, yes I do prefer the design of the S8, of course, but the XZP is a head-turner as well.
You can see what I'm talking about better here (hands-on videos):

I'm glad we could agree on SOME points. lol
The prices are very low compared to what I was expecting. And it isn't the normal flagship. It's the premium one. Though I won't add 300 to the value factor calculation, still it is pretty good. I won't have to buy a 300 headphone if it is not included. one will buy worth of 50 I think. And yesssss.... That blue color is much better than the pink one.
