I was watching a video from Recombu.
The guy made Q&A about XZ Premium. He said he started to use the phone 8 a.m .
He play games,watched videos in 4K HDR, photos, installing apps etc.... He started to make the Q&A video a bit after 8 p.m .
He says battery was still 40%.
8 p.m and still 40% left...
AnonD-664474, 18 May 2017Battery is worse than other flagships because it's pushing more than twice more pixels so that... moreI agree that 4K is good for VR but no point otherwise.
Regarding night photography. I think you are confusing low light and night photos (which always need flash on small sensors). Even at 28 Lux in the GSMa studio the XZP really struggles with noise compared to the S8+... The S8+ doesn't appear to be as good as the new HTC U11. Everyone who takes photos indoors, under trees or in cloudy conditions is testing a phones low light performance.
I'm cheering about the HTC camera performance... It will force Samsung & other manufacturers to lift their game even further. Sony fans need to demand better camera performance as well.
I don't think Sony will sell even half phones worldwide of the number of comments on this article.
AnonD-664474, 18 May 2017Battery is worse than other flagships because it's pushing more than twice more pixels so that... moreSorry. It's because they waited massive space that should have been used for battery.
And it has the next resolution for Vr. Not necessarily the best Vr experience.
And nighttime photography was never meant to be a thing?
This is the blind denial and excuses that have all been mentioned
To Sony fans, haters, trolls, and bashers, thank you so much for your support. I'm glad that the 1K comments in 1 week will finally be true.
[deleted post]Would be better if all of us Sony fans will not comment a single thing at all. I wonder how funny will it be, that the trolls and Sony haters, and even non-Sony fans are kept being ignored. That would be a hilarious shame for them. Lol
Lex79, 17 May 2017Honest people do have eyes yes, fanboys have bias, that's always been my point. And no matt... moreAnd no matter how hard you try, you can't misguide me that you are not a Sony hater, because you are.

You don't have to be paid to see that the battery is worse ... moreBattery is worse than other flagships because it's pushing more than twice more pixels so that your eyes will not ask for more resolution.
4K screen isn't exactly a gimmick. At this screen size, your eyes will not be able to determine a single pixel at a normal viewing distance, but for VR lovers, nothing will be on top of this phone, okay?
Night photography was never made to be a purpose tbh. Even professional photographers with ultra large sensor cameras only take photos in good light..
It's neither paid nor reality, but your ego of hating Sony too much has taken too far. And no need to make fun of Sony fans, because we never made fun of haters either. If you can't respect others' opinions, then better yet to shut up.
yes paid troll indeed. hater maybe impulsive, but they will got tired soon. but paid troll is different, their motive and energy is endless.

Everyone knows that if you want to make a phone call you use you mobile and if you want to go to the moon you use a rocket.
If I want a serious photo it's simple, I use my serious tech and get great shots.
And wanna know something? There's no mobile phone out there that can match a dslr!
AnonD-669639, 18 May 2017paid troll, they want to make this phone look bad. shame on them. 700 comments? it's not hate,... moreThe phone does it on in itself.
You don't have to be paid to see that the battery is worse than all flagship here in gsmarena or that 4k on phones is a gimmick, or that night photography is not this phone's strong suite.
You don't have to be paid to believe in your own two eyes, you just do ... It's the fans belonging to the Church of Sony that constantly ignore what their eyes see.
Lex79, 17 May 2017I can't, hasn't hit the market yet, that why Tann's comment took me by surprise. Even when it ... moreSure, I wouldn't spend my money on it either. :p Even though my Z1C --seriously-- needs an upgrade.. :/ Luckily my work is buying it for me so all I gotta do is choose the colour.. :)
That, and decide whether to wait for a possible XZ-C announcement, though I'm not sure my Z1c will make it that far..... I'm not sure if the Z1c had the Qnovo stuff in it but I sure hope not because this is a 3-year-old phone and right now the battery dies at around 60%. I actually suspect the magnetic charger port they used in the earlier Zs had a lot to do with capacity decrease because a) it gets hot sometimes [the charger] and you --really--- have to be careful not to let your well-meaning girlfriend plug it in upside-down cos it -----really---- doesn't like that. Started smokin' and the charger cable connection point actually melted. This was an off-brand cable btw so that might be part of it. It literally dropped from lasting a full day to needing charging by 5pm.
As for the camera.. I'm past worrying whether one phone's photos are 10, 20% better than another's. They all take photos and they all let you see what you snapped. Granted, the 960fps is cool but I'm sure I'll do two or three when I first get it and then barely ever use it again. Unless the camera was actually unusable I can't see it ever making a tangible difference to my selections.
I contemplated the S8 for a while but a few colleagues have it now and after handling it and playing a little it's just a silly size & layout. Feels more like a TV remote control.. eeeurgh.
paid troll, they want to make this phone look bad. shame on them. 700 comments? it's not hate, it's paid troll.
Jumbo, 17 May 2017It was related to "obsessive Sony fans vs haters" ;) I was saying, there often isn't obsession... moreOf course their are just regular people and fans with their preferences.
But my point on the obsessive ones still stands and is very directly related to the amount of comments here.
Anonymous, 17 May 2017Eithat that or it is really really bad phone that Sony fans overinflate its importance.
Jus... moreThe more competition the more better products we get, why shall we hope competitors would die?!. For a benefit of others?!, what benefit we costumers we get?!.
At least Sony has a good reputation, long history of success and brings the most stable class products to life.
Go ahead Sony, good luck!.
