The compact one is extremely awesome even though there are a few shortcomings like dropping the minijack or using a combined SIM/microSD slot. The big one is okay, but it looks worse, and the competition between large phones is much fiercer. The compact one has only one viable alternative - S9 with its questionable ergonomics, lagging UI, glass back and higher price.
Screen diagonal 5.5 inch compact, 5.7 inch medium, 6.0 inch large, completely bezel-less, 16:9 aspect ratio, 300 ppi screen density, same battery capacity, fingerprint sensor on the back, infinity display.
[deleted post]In your logic the Galaxy s9 is a budget phone XD, and there won't be any flagship this year until the xz2 premium.
[deleted post]If that so, why would you bother to read a Xperia article and waste you time on commenting..??
[deleted post]You're so funny. A mid range with SD845. What would you expect in a flagship..?? Two SD845's & four rear cameras..??
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2018Dude! Samsung is best in bloatwares and you can only disable them, not uninstall! this is the first time I heard we can't remove bloatware. unless they got severely locked.
with root (& root explorer), system file uninstaler, deleting app package in room before flashing. Android main advantage is customization, and once they got locked, they just become iOS but without ease to use, optimization, & beautiful ui
The camera placement looks weird on the big one. The compact just looks better overall
Imperator Neubaticus, 25 Mar 2018You know you've failed when people prefer your inferior offering over your flagship. Stay irre... moreYup indeed. People still choose the S8 over the S9 no matter what gimmicks Samsung is throwing into. I agree, Samsung is still irrelevant.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2018You can Uninstall any app in Samsung. Most of Sony's bloatware CAN'T be Uninstalled. Plus... moreDude! Samsung is best in bloatwares and you can only disable them, not uninstall!
cole.knox, 25 Mar 2018I own xz premium and yeah don't forget: xperia lounge Sony LIV Asphalt nitro News suit M... moreWhat are you smoking?! We do all know that your beloved Samsung has contributions on making the SD845. And also, your Samsung has MORE bloatwares than that of Sony.
Imperator Neubaticus, 25 Mar 2018You know you've failed when people prefer your inferior offering over your flagship. Stay irre... moreBoth are flagships lol, dude are you all right or just practicing a new keyboard?
Imperator Neubaticus, 25 Mar 2018Lol living in the past. Time to be less ignorant of the world buddy.To be honest, yes for me Samsung is only a past.
You know you've failed when people prefer your inferior offering over your flagship. Stay irrelevant sony.
Ali Bashir, 25 Mar 2018But you can't Uninstaller nor disable Samsung heavy and buggy UI the biggest bloatware in mobiles. Lol living in the past. Time to be less ignorant of the world buddy.
Sayte, 25 Mar 2018It's still better than having Samsung's duplicate apps and bloatware.... Not to mention bixbyNop
Xperia has lightweight UI and best software optimization and get updated faster and less bloatware compare to Samsung because Samsung has duplicate the apps with similar features as Googles.
