dirknelson, 21 May 2017Hey GSM Arena. Don't you have moderators? No offense but this dude, Jesse Clark, is just flood... moreHe has been proven wrong quite many times too, btw.
But your willingness to silence criticism against Sony is troubling too. This is not a Sony thread. This is a thread about Xperia's review and many of us who want a healthy competition between companies are very dismayed from this phone because it can hardly compete with last year's S7 Edge even ... and that's a problem .
Samsung will continue upping her prices as Sony is unable to compete, that's what many of us (non fanboys) say here. Sony *must* try harder, catering to her fans alone is bound to actually harm the phone market as a whole...
Good video here with lotsssss of face-on views of the Black model. Video itself is pretty bad as he's terrible at keeping focus, but at least there are plenty of shots with screen-off, front-facing which are hard to find at the moment.
Hey GSM Arena. Don't you have moderators? No offense but this dude, Jesse Clark, is just flooding this Sony article with his Samsung praises and Sony criticism. He is definitely in the wrong section. I don't know what he is into but this is so wrong. Why not send his comments to Samsung article? I'm a fan of Sony, I like their phones because I really can see how sturdy and premium their phones are but I never go to other manufacturer's article and flood their articles with so much disapproval. Logic is simple; why spend so much time for the phone you don't like? You can comment once, but flooding an article supposedly for true users is really annoying. I hope you read and see this GSM Arena.

I --prefer-- the chrome but I feel like the black --could-- have just that significant extra bit of class. That's the deciding factor in the end, otherwise I would be thinking about the S8, which I've already decided I can't bring myself to do. :P I just need to find way more hands-on vids to evaluate, heh.
You could say, wait to see it in the shop, but then you don't get the killer headphones with the pre-order, heh.
Jesse Clark, 21 May 2017No dude you proved your point when you mentioned XZP, U11 and iPhone 7. Three entirely differe... moreYou know what - you're right. S8 is --arguably-- the best phone "right now". But if it were --perfect--, no phone in the future could ever be better. So you might as well leave the internet right now, right?
Jesse Clark, 21 May 2017No dude you proved your point when you mentioned XZP, U11 and iPhone 7. Three entirely differe... morebcoz i simple person so i can accept both android or ios .. it depend on my heart which 1 i will choice .. i also said it early samsung will put everything on note 8 .. yeeh it will be great but bcoz last year i already have note 7 so this year i want something different :)
Damia Alesya, 21 May 2017alolololo .. im not samsung hater lol.. i am not did it when g6 come out ... i will not contin... moreNo dude you proved your point when you mentioned XZP, U11 and iPhone 7. Three entirely different smartphones, you didn't even mention Note 8. The thing is anyone who likes XZP and HTC U11 will not like iPhone over S8. IPhone user database is about having a phone which can make them look richer than their original status by sacrificing key tech features. If it's about status the only other brand is Samsung so I agree iPhone fan will hate Samsung and most Samsung users who might already used iPhone will hate it too. But if you like pro Android less mainstream phones like U11 and Xzp, you are in a different league. But then you say wait for iPhone? I'll just say the one waiting for next iPhone has nothing to do with those two. As you didn't even mention waiting for Note 8 after naming every other brand and now saying it'll be worth waiting, you prove what I said about you in my earlier post. Accept S8 is the greatest phone right now and stop spreading hate as samsung didn't take anything from you. I don't know which brand do you really like after naming all of them but I know you just hate successful things. #onevsall
Jesse Clark, 21 May 2017S8 is a huge improvement over S7 edge, the new aspect ratio is the next big thing and it's wro... morePerformance: It's not better. Run benchs to both , it's like 5-10% better
Samsung ripped you off by running a lighter version of touchwiz. If you install a proper OS (AOSP for example), you'd see it's the same.
Battery life: It's worse, all sites agree. This is a bare faced lie
Unlock: Fingerprint is a million times faster than either face or retina, you don't have to keep the phone in your face, that's silly. Putting the fingerprint back basically killed it
Aspect ratio: Cropping media is exactly my point. It's not supported, cropping media or games is killing them. So no it's not a click away, it's actually many years away unless and until companies agree to fix this in their apps. Else the aspect ratio is a$$ as it is unsupported.
I went to their website. S8 only has Bluetooth 5, everything else is never going to be used. It's like buying a car with a better tail light all the while your old one was operfectly bright too. I mean who cares?
S8 is a step back on two of the big three. Worse ergonomy (due to the silly aspect ratio, death of one handed use and weird fingerprint placing), worse autonomy )(that's what less battery does to you). It's only equal in performance and camera.
You're duped my friend, lioke many of those Sony fans are.
Problem with both Sony and Samsung at this point is that they are milking the cow.
Samsung did it again with Note 5. It was worse in almost everything to Note 4 (except camera) ... Yet many people bought it.
*That* is what kill smarphones, fanboys (of Samsung or Sony), who would buy anything, even steps back.
Jesse Clark, 21 May 2017I highly doubt you'll buy any flagship phone, you are just a Samsung hater who will comment cr... morealolololo .. im not samsung hater lol.. i am not did it when g6 come out ... i will not continue with chinese like One Plus or etc .. yeeah Chinese brand have some good smartphone too like xiaomi 6 and One plus 5 but i dont really like it bcoz after sale service is not good in my area .. but to be honest i dont care about s8 not bcoz it from samsung but bcoz it come out with some prob also not really big different from s7 lol... but Note 8 maybe will make me interested bcoz of coz samsung will care much about it bcoz of note 7 failure :)
if you wan to worship your samsung, do it in samsung related article. but you paid troll just want to bashing this phone. there are no more tjan 400 comments on samsung related article. why??

At night or in dark places it won't be noticeable, even though it looks nice.
The only reason I am getting the luminous chrome because it reminds me of the Nokia 8800. It's like the new nokia in mobile's world in this age ;)
Check this video you can see how XZP looks different along other phones, and you can check the camera performance at 6:15. The real colors and how shadows looked reflected on that trees.
Damia Alesya, 21 May 2017ok ok you won , S8 is perfect :) but still in my mind right now just 3 phone , HTC U11 , XZP... moreI highly doubt you'll buy any flagship phone, you are just a Samsung hater who will comment crap about it whenever a phone will launch, you did the same when G6 came but it lost, then with XZP, U11, you'll continue it when cheap Chinese brands like one plus one will come out and same when iPhone will come. You don't love any brand and can't buy any of them, you just hate Samsung for some very sick reasons just like some people hate every successful thing and feel racism from it. But S8 will keep the proving itself better than everything else and it'll increase your hate for no reason. It's one vs all.
Getting my XZ PREMIUM tomorrow!
Best phone in my world and if only I lived in Austria where you get a ps4 as a gift when u pre order
[deleted post]On Xperia XZ Premium the Xperia Album app will render in 4K resolution (2160x3840). This is not the case for other album apps such as Google Photos.
If you play a video in full-screen mode it also uses 4K. This is true regardless if you use Xperia Album or YouTube and true for many 3rd party video players as well.
For other use cases, full HD resolution is used.
