Als, 17 May 2017Crazy amounts of comments. That tells you how good this phone is. No. It's because of the battle between the over obsessive Sony fans fighting with the haters.
And fighting with everyone else for not bowing down to everything Sony in existence
Anonymous, 17 May 2017So big bezels, low battery, bad camera ... Is there anything good about that phone?
By your... moreNo, in phone arena xz premium have more s8+
S8 in Dxomark only 88 point = x performance
S8 estupid ratio, no front speakers stereo
No 13 mpx front camera
AnonD-667568, 16 May 2017So if this is a trashy phone, why is it the phone of the year so far? Most beautiful phone at... moreExactly, I couldn't have said it better. As much as I admire the S8, all it is, is a S7 edge with top and bottom cut off.(Which I like lol, Samsung's bezels were inherently ugly with all those exposed sensors). Still That's not innovation as such as Apple's introduction of mainstream fingerprint scanners. How does this change the experience? Certainly, the for the S8 it doesn't since the black bars on the S8 because of the aspect ratio for videos makes it equal to XZP bezels. This is where the Sony excels in practicality, (Fastest UI beating Google themselves), Bezels which may be large but have a use other than the fact they are packed with a memory stacked camera, 13MP Front Cam, triple sensing technology and two stereospeakers because they are great for camera grip and gaming finger placement. Best Natural looking screen, Hi Res Audio, PS4 remote play, IP68, 960FPS, the list goes on and on.... I think you get my point.
Als, 17 May 2017Crazy amounts of comments. That tells you how good this phone is. U11 does better than this in camera.
AnonD-77443, 17 May 2017.... or maybe its because of the massive bezels, poor low light camera, moderate battery life....Maybe it's because it has the best camera for daytime (comparisons are out, even XZs beats S8 and IP7), Lowlight can be adjusted with ISO manual mode, best screen with most natural colours, and fastest phone ever made.....

AnonD-668349, 13 May 2017Samsung bot. The low light isn't that bad to begin with. The pictures looks accurate than the ... moreDo not listen to this guy, I have personally checked the photos in the link and GSMArean did a good job on comparing the photos between the 3 phones (XZ, S8, and iPhone)
I am more or less Sonly Fanboy but sadly even I have to admit that S8 did a better job on low light compared XZP, the images from S8 looks more crisp, detailed, colorful, natural and close to no noise, while XZP is still good, but much worse compared to S8.
I would much appreciate if certain individuals posting here don't just outright lie and mislead the readers, if you don't belive, click on the link an check for urself, there are no bias here.
choose between this phone and s8 is very hard !! I think this xzp is a bit better than s8. Design is good for both of them in separate ways i think this two is most beauty phones in the market but xzp is classic and future proof and s8 attractive will die soon in my mind . Very good year for mobile phone lovers. And hard to them who can't buy all of them together :)
Jumbo, 16 May 2017It it 4K 10-bit HDR.
LG G6 has 12-bit HDR, but no 4K.
S8 has 10-bit that they call HDR... moreXperia XZ Premium, LG G6 and S8 ...All smartphones in general have an 8-bit panel
8 bit = 16M colors
Xperia XZ Premium: HDR10 and Hybrid Log-Gamma
G6: HDR10 and Dolby Vision
Galaxy S8: HDR10
HDR10+ is not available in S8, atm just for TVs through a future update
HDR10: 10 Bits (Xperia XZP BT.2020)
Hybrid Log-Gamma: 10 BitS (Xperia XZP BT.2020)
Dolby Vision: 12 Bits
However, none of the devices mentioned supports these standards, all content will be seen at a depth of 8 Bits.
for multimedia, stereo speaker and bezels for grip are better than 1-2 cm extra screen.
Another crap with Sony brand on it... Sorry but this is 2017, I just cant stand their bezels.

By your own admission it's nothing special.
the most beautiful and classy phone this year, so far. however they have to reduce the bezel size , improve the camera in low light and develop a better marketing and service strategy in colaboration with carriers to stay in the game. i have a z5 premium and i have to admit the battery life and camera are the main issues with it , iphone samsung and lg taking better pictures , especially in low light. however sony is rock solid and stylish , that`s why i like it more
Anonymous, 16 May 2017Pics of the black have screen on so you can see the limits of display and bezels. Chrome is... moreCan't we have one on and one off? Or at least one off? I see 10+ photos all with the screen on. Soo frustrating since my choice between Black & Chrome hinges on whether the black is uniform when the screen is off.
AnonD-667568, 16 May 2017So if this is a trashy phone, why is it the phone of the year so far?
Most beautiful phone at... moreYa, it's beautiful ... if you like boxes ... with little openings in the middle.
People call it trash because Sony refuses to innovate, they lazily push themselves across the years and fanboys keeping them alive. If their name was not Sony they would have been long gone from the mobile space, like so many before them...
AnonD-654245, 16 May 2017Ciro, have you ever walked thru the GSMArena camera comparison tool? Do you really believe DxO... moreSo, between a photographer and a journalist opinion you pick the one from journalist. If he is... You do not need to be one to work for tech site.
Also their tool have samples with different settings.. Not the same value for ISO or Shutter speed.
The example S8 x XZP, s8 had lower ISO and slower shutter speed.
Cams also have different angles. See iphone, it seems the object is closer compared to other phones
Higher resolution means you can strech the picture much more.
