Yet another big bezel monster, ok I understand that not every phone can have small bezels, as this requires high technology and is destined for flagships, yet not having at least one of them only demonstrates that Sony is unable to manufacture one and I use to admire them for being the only ones able to create compact flagships...
Having one of these for a few days I can confirm battery life is good,performance smooth with only a tiny bit of stutter in places and camera is definitely improved and VERY sharp and clear,no horrible blurring like before. Only issue I have with this handset is the signal is terrible. In areas where I always get 4G like where I live this phone keeps losing 4G signal yet a previous Huawei was excellent

If we put your logic into perspective, we can say that the S8/S8+'s camera is very similar to the S7/S7 Edge/Note 7
Steady, 09 May 2017that's why only smart people buy sony phonesOr maybe only Emos considering themselves special buy them. As long as you click and picture is good nobody cares about DXO score. To think that I won't buy this device since it's score is 86 and I'll buy one with 87 is complete nonsense to begin with
i have a strong feeling that Sony can't show it's full potential on the it's flagship cams i don't know why ! can anyone tell me how an old 3 generation ix300 (z5) beat this year sensor ix400 (XZs) ?
AnonD-667624, 08 May 2017So this far, anyone can tell me why people hate bezel?I guess because screen ratio has evolved and now tiny bezels = "the norm." People like to hate a phone or a company that seems to be going backward in design. The bezels are odd looking but you know what? It's a trade- off. Bezels are why the phone is only 8mm thick and 143g weight. I'LL TAKE IT! I have had the XA1 for 3 days and liking it a lot. Battery endurance better than I expected. I paid only $300 USD + tax for this great new phone; I paid more than that for both my Xperia Z3 Compact and previously Galaxy S4 Mini. And those models were 1 year old when I bought them! Oh and if you're in USA, good luck finding another phone with LTE band 66. (LG V20 is only one I believe). Cheers
AnonD-667624, 08 May 2017So this far, anyone can tell me why people hate bezel?Because samsungs marketing department tells people what they should find important in phones.
New camera looks stunnig. Being much more better than, for instance, iPhone7's one and it takes almost as good pic as it does in low light cond. Many ways better than previous flagships and current XZs. Good job. Now it is really premium camera indeed
Shrey21, 08 May 2017It has redesigned lens compared to XZ not XZs. XZ Premium and XZs share the same lensI doubt it. XZs still have corner softening while XA1 hve been upgraded, maybe Sony upgrade the device on newer launch phones, XA1 & XZ premium. The article said nothing about XZs, but XZ premium instead.

Surficial, 07 May 2017Isn't far off what ppi iphones have, rgb lcds are sharper than amoleds.No iPhone have below 326ppi display, this since 2010, and I didn't understand what you're trying to say, I did not said anything about AMOLED displays, 720p on the Compact series was reasonable because of the small size of the display, but 5' and up 1080p is best.
