If they choose (CBD) polarisation technology they get much better results at lower battery consumption but they slow and says will improve viewing angle and screen white color point only later in two years. Disappointed. But is other technology whos can improve today and are created much earlier like (CBD). And in latter two years they should release bendable foldable rolable screens. But what you can see now cuting corners and curving corners they are joking.

Besides the Honor turned out to be a great little phone. Fast, a lot of features that'll probably turn up standard Android fare in the near future (yes, I'm referring to fingerprint-scanner gestures), nice screen, equally good-looking design as the Samsungs (although I'm no fan of glass at the back). And at the current price, these Honor's are a steal. Sure they're not a OP 3T in speed, but then again the 3T hasn't got an IR-blaster (and a 2-way one too), hasn't got the convenient gestures, the front-camera that automagically uses the screen as light etc...
Plus I love that Huawei for once used common sense in some parts. Like the avoiding the overzealous QHD screen and going for FHD instead, or the 3.5"phone jack at the bottom, or the fingerprint-scanner on a sensible spot (at the back unlike these)!
Naah, I'm good for 2017 and it didn't have to sell my liver or kidney. :-)
Screens white color point looks bad bluish and cold. Keeping bluish white point screen to have better screen on time in tests, later maybe will fix it. No white version or any different color front at all looks boring and disappointing. No new sensor, only optic. Ok I see improvements in camera bit. Everythings looks same. Well how useful is bixby and how much ppl use it like all sams asist will see. Samsung Dex feature for desktop computing looks good useful idea, works for power point copy paste enought. For documents editing also?. Thinking still nothing comparing to windows program support. But how good adopted is other apps we will see. Will wait note 8 white version maybe. Most compliments is on bigger screen in to small body and have really big screen with small bezels. But its also gimmick. Hmm... so is this all features and improvements?. Need camera screen battery tests. Manufacturers seems play with us and raises prices. So this means every year features cost no more same again and only higher and higer?. Not good to customers. Well think now smaller manufacturers offers good and maybe even same with really less price. So trendy girls and guys can buy overpriced things and feel more smarter and inovative to payed more than others. We will see soon how good this is compares his rised prices. Also whats happy to get lower rams and storage depend on markets? Other markets pay more for flagships. But LG Samsung please stop it. We also worth better smartphones.
Genza, 30 Mar 2017Wrong in reality Galaxy S8 series will only destroy Xperia XZ premium in sales.As usual the Galaxy always crush every Xperia devices.
Galaxy S8 has;
Better form factor (lightweight, smaller footprint and bezel less for immersive viewing),
Better screen than crappy LCD,
More secure ( Iris Scanner & Instant access facial recognition),
regs, 29 Mar 2017Even your giant hand isn't enough to use it one-hand... They should have been make S8 standard... moreThere are already a million of those small-sized phones, nice to have some bigger ones as well to choose from.
Did they deliberately place that fingerprint-scanner in such an awkward position to softly enforce facial recognition?
And please, tone down that goddamn blinding white for god's sake!
G6 looks better than these. The most beautiful one is Note7. But sammy fans don't need to worry about the sales because it's made by Samsung, the sales may still be good.
Maybe they will appeal to the younger generation, who knows.
uh. no. they don't
Others are setting an uproar just because of the size of these phones. They're actually amazing! Imagine a 6.2 inch-phone still has smaller footprint than an ilhome 6s plus with only a 5.5inch panel? I think Samsung will have a problem in dealing with the demand. This is too amazing to be true

JonHolstein, 29 Mar 2017I have never hyped the Samung for having 1000 fps mode.
I was always sceptical about that rum... moreI've seen many demos of Sony Xperia super slow motion video even with all the limitations the super slow motion is far from useless you are ignorant if you think like that just look this video comparison with iPhone 240fps video.
As you can see the result is better and more dramatic than the 240fps also is not that hard to time the action.
The implementation is far from ideal but still great because it reduce the file size, reduce the risk of overheating.
FYI the image sensor in Xperia XZ Premium is capable of recording up to 1000fps in Full HD but since Xperia like almost every other phones use NTSC standard so the maximum fps is 960fps.
And if you think the 3-layer stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM in Xperia XZ Premium and XZs is just about 960fps burst you got it all wrong because the sensor 5x faster image scanning/readout than the sensor in S8 series allow it to have less rolling shuter / jello effect and buffer full resolution still image 1 second before you press the shutter button.
Haters always gonna hate!, but you better go with that tank iphone 7 plus with only 5.5" display and pay a lot of money for it!, guys like you dont deserve great technology!
