HornPub, 03 Jun 2017Firstly, I do defend something here, and it's not Sony.
Guess what? It's the truth that I'm d... morenot only the bezel, the camera also cr@p compared to lg and samsung flagships. proven by blind test few days ago.
johnwick, 03 Jun 2017are you kidding? what do you mean by saying "considering the brand" do you think sony is just ... moreNo I am not kidding. What I meant by "considering the brand" was
" Sony as a brand is better than many Chinese brands which sell only at value for money proposition. Also Sony is definitely not superior than Apple and Samsung to charge such a high premium on flagships" (fans always think otherwise)
There is no point is launching phone at such high price and later reducing it by 20-25%. It's not fair to take advantage of Fans by launching at such high price and reducing prices after short span of time.
another.day, 03 Jun 2017I know right? Not sure why GSMA allows these brand advertisers to post nonsense fake comments!... moreTell me what was the price of the S8 on its first release date? And considering it has already been a month including those on release issues like red-tint, autoreboot, lags, etc. price will obviously drop.

Not sure why GSMA allows these brand advertisers to post nonsense fake comments! I am a Sony fan yet I agree with you, no matter how many features you put like rgbc sensor, laser af if the real life quality is bad vs competitors (S8 and G6) then what's the point of having these features.. oh and stereo speakers? GSMA review rates them "below average" while S8 gets "Good" as overall score now again you fanboys will argue that review is biased.. okay let me tell you GSMA gave XA Ultra "Excellent" overall speaker score, I believe reviews here are genuine and if a phone is really good then it GSMA will rate it better, so yes stop defending a phone which isn't up to the mark for the asking price no one will pay 62,000INR /960 USD for this while the S8 goes for around 885 USD. Learn to accept the truth that XZP is highly overpriced for what it has to offer and move on also the way he is calling other people here "average" and "stinky" just because they point out genuine flaws of a product is not cool.
What the people always fail to realize is that this phone is unique on its own.
In the world going full bezel less display, Sony's the one to keep them for practical and useful use - protection and better handling. Palm rejection is at its early stage, and it's better to mature it first before the implementation.
If you're not willing to pay $950 for a flagship device, then Idk why the hell did you just purchase the S8 duo which hovers around $1000 in India.
And it's not Sony to be blamed for high prices, because its official retail price is far lesser than most high end flagships other than the U 11 and upcoming OP5.
Indian gov't is to be the main cause of insane prices.
That's just like a customer complaining against the restaurant's manager for not-so-good tasting food, when it's the chefs that cooked it is to be blamed for it.
Think out of the box guys.
When judging a person, you don't look at his/her face, you look at him/her as his/her whole body.

If you're gonna take GSMArena's test only, then you just proved your ignorance and close-mindedness.
I don't wanna speak any longer, so believe what you want to believe, 'cause I can't blame you for anything either.
Atleast it didnt reach $1000 like Sc@msung, better wait for it to drop in price.

L0lip0p, 03 Jun 2017Below average?
If 4K HDR display, stereo speaker, 960fps burst slow mow, class leading video ... morei dont know which one you call lag. all android flagships are not lag. even touchwiz also smooth and fast.
the reason why xpooria ui feels faster is because it only uses very minimum amount of animations. and that makes it looks ugly. xpooria ui is the ugliest android ui. most people hate overpriced product with ugly ui.
that is the reason why sony can only sell few of their products every year. even china phones have a lot better ui than xpooria.
ithehappy, 02 Jun 2017Hate? Lol carelessness should be the proper word. No one cares about this phone. Below average... moreBelow average?
If 4K HDR display, stereo speaker, 960fps burst slow mow, class leading video stabilisation, one of the best camera, is below average, i don't know what to say to manufacturer that stuck at 720p display for it flagship, mono audio recording, lag and mono speaker
Yup, the price is high, but that's in india only, I don't know why
redhawk, 03 Jun 2017Dude tell me just one brand who is not making it's smartphone from China?? Every smartphones a... moreNo it's not far better. In fact it's not better at all. I don't understand why people call it the best display but to me it doesn't appear as good. It's mediocre at best and is right there with the displays of other flagships. Add to that AMOLED has its own array of inherent problems and Samsung apathy.
HornPub, 03 Jun 2017Mr. Know-It-All "very unbiased" man, I do like how you tried to convey all of my statements, a... moreAfter looking at this comment I am definitely not going to buy XZP! I am sure you are a paid troll from Sony trying to promote the brand disguised as a fan here.
to quote you "If you will judge it, Xperias never failed behind too much in low light, and that's because the large sensor saves it." SERIOUSLY? Such blatant lies?
look at the photo comparison on GSMA!! someone posted a link down in comments here. Sony's camera is just garbage in front of LG G6 and S8 no one cares about your RGBC sensor if pic quality is so bad and grainy in low light and now fan boys like you will say GSMA lies and will attack people personally. Sad.
XZP is going for 961 USD not 800 in India, much more than competitor S8 and G6 at least get your facts right.
[deleted post]Dude tell me just one brand who is not making it's smartphone from China?? Every smartphones are made in China only...if u r getting a perfect price to performance ratio then why should not u buy Chinese products? Take the example of LG G6 ....u r getting what u r paying...tell me what u r getting from this shit?? Huge bezels, not a better camera then LG G6 and Galaxy s8, 4k HDR display of no use coz Samsung's sAmoled display on s8 is far better then this gimmicky display, SD835 which even Mi6 is also providing... that's why Sony's phones are selling like 10k units whereas Samsung's and xiaomi's phones are selling in millions....
[deleted post]Whatever troll.
Whatever satisfy your needs, and hating is definitely one.
No need to compare Samsung and others to Sony, the legendary brand.
Where's Samsung during the 90's where Apple and Microsoft are for computers, Nokia for mobile phones, and Sony for entertainment products?
Samsung may have won the sales race, but Sony wins the people's respect.
No adverts everywhere, lack of good service, and not-so-impressive devices and still gains profits by selling these phones at a high price tag - only Sony can do that.
johnwick, 03 Jun 2017are you kidding? what do you mean by saying "considering the brand" do you think sony is just ... moreYes considering the brand it should be around 50k....when u can get a LG G6 for 40k then this shit is not worth of >50k...it's not either future proof also
pramod5774, 02 Jun 2017Should have been launched at 49999 (good value for money considering quality and brand). At 6... moreare you kidding? what do you mean by saying "considering the brand" do you think sony is just mediocre brand like those Chinese smartphone makers? get your mind straight man, sony makes phone durable than your so called "s8's" or "i7's"
