Tann Hauser, 30 Apr 2017?? You can buy any compatible VR headest out there, download any VR app or game and enjoy V... moreOk. How about battery life of XZ Premium running a 4K VR content? I doubt it will last an hour.
scooby, 01 May 2017its great for VRWith what headset? None provided by Sony.
Let me explain my answer (There're other Sony's out there).
The USP selling point of this phone was 720p @ 960 fps. But I wish to point out the shortcomings:-
1. Why not 720p@ 480/240 fps for a longer duration than 0.18 seconds?
2. Why not 1080p@480 fps for a limited duration?
Or further, why not place a fast flash permanent memory exclusively for the camera so that recording more than 0.18 seconds is possible? Ok, I agree this is hardware matter, but the 1 & 2 require only software changes, right?
And why the aperture so dull and a pixel size so "common"? Don't they know high fps requires higher shutter speeds and eventually a lot of light?
1/960th of a second is too high even for DSLR's.
We all know Sony and how capable they are. And I would say, their next flagship should bring more solid options.... For now, they aren't even trying.
Anonymous, 01 May 2017Sony phone was so ugly. I wondering why some minority people still want it, are they Sony die ... moreme personally love sony flagship because, flagship are really expensive, if I get iphone or galaxy s, these phone are too popular, everyone had it, so if I get sony, it really stand out, and not mainstream hehe
What with the stupid options? 3 of the option pretty much saying 'I will get a Sony device no matter what'. The last one is the only one saying to get a different brand. Btw, is there a difference between getting the phone by preorder or after it launches?? Weirdest option ever.

I dont know what to buy s8+or sony xp
Should i buy the s8+ or should i wait the sony
(Interms of specifications)
Or should i wait for 1+5
I have good feeling it's going to be great phone
ProJames, 30 Apr 2017I still have to find a purpose to the 4K screen before I ever buy a device with one.Exactly, The phone itself is very good but purpose of 4k screen is hard to find, I mean just to view 4k recorded content from mobile will be stupid, I think 4k files are too large in size to stream online content or download content, otherwise phone looks good (better than the s8 cause curved glass is not suited for me), and 960 fps, I mean wow
ProJames, 01 May 2017Exactly. But I could also buy the Vertu Constellation. I mean, if you have to pay that much on... moreYes you can
But its like you have to tell peoples that this is my virtu phone
And are you a entrepreneur ?
those are royal flagship phones
But for normal 800$900$ phone is enough
Anonymous, 01 May 2017Sony phone was so ugly. I wondering why some minority people still want it, are they Sony die ... moreAccording to me they are classic really not that I'm a fanboy but really I like their design. All other phone look nearly the same. I think you know that look is not compulsory.
mir, 30 Apr 2017Too bad you gave up too early.blame the lcd. it is not suitable for google's vr. maybe we will see proper vr support in 2018.

ResolvePi , 01 May 2017I would consider it if it had wireless charging and the camera UX and performance equalled or ... morePerformance is better than s8 .. even the xzs best the s8 in performance test with a sd820 ... Camera we have to wait .. I'm sure the video recording is better but not sure about the pics

At current exchange rates for $815 US dollars I'm with the "I'm going with a different brand" crowd @ 35%.
