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.

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.

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.
[deleted post]LOL. aaaahaaahaaaaaa. sony fanboy cant admit the failure, then blaming gsmarena. even apple fanboys never did this before.
even if you blame gsmarena forever, it wont change people opinions about sony. bezelicious, ugly, and average camera.
AnonD-458731, 21 May 2017Why sunlight legibility isn't great as xz and xzs? Don't get it! it's all about the 4k screen ... moreIt is the 4k screen, higher pixel density equal lower brightness levels, sony can do nothing for it, but it is not that worse.
AnonD-669639, 21 May 2017agreed. that bezels this bezels in almost reaching 900 comments it is really boring. yaawn ...yeah because sony is too stubborn. never give what customers want. bezel bezel and bezel, ugly ugly and ugly, that is most people opinions about sony. but sony never listen to the people. and the image processing softwares always have probems too. average cemera quality. thats why sony always fail selling their phones.
if sony cannot fix those problems, then they better quit from smartphone market. no one buy their phones other than their delusional fanboys.
Why sunlight legibility isn't great as xz and xzs? Don't get it! it's all about the 4k screen on this phone but once again dissapoints...Come on Sony!
ok ok you won , S8 is perfect :)
but still in my mind right now just 3 phone , HTC U11 , XZP or wait for Iphone8 :)
for XZP i love that 960fps :D
oooh btw S8 must have that 960fps too bcoz it PERFECT :)
