IamD3V, 15 May 2017Well it seems..there's just two smartphone everyone's talking bout right now..One S8 and the O... moreXZ Premium rivals something like OnePlus 3T maybe, or maybe the upcoming One Plus 5 if I am too modest? In any case mid range phones where you should be looking at. Don't put other flagship phones to shame. And people are "replying" here mostly for the stupid and imaginary childish comments which are already posted by Sony fanboys, that's why so many comments. I am sure number of comments is how Sony fans need to defend this poor phone. Shame on them really and as ever, pity. This article is here for last 3-4 days is another reason why people come here and look at comment section, the moment something new comes no one will even bother obviously, as they never did with any Sony phone in past, as all of them were below average. Everyone knows Sony's history, nothing new.
I own Pixel and I almost never bother to go there and comment something because the phone doesn't have something really poor which needs commenting, so yeah. I am sure other quiet phone sections are quiet for same reason.
Poor phone, more defending needed with absurd childish misleading fanboyism which are further replied with facts and a pile of comment count, that's all. This is another new low for Sony, comment count as a feature of their phone as original features are lacking. ROFL.
I am simply commenting for the fun of it like I mentioned previously. You made fun to them weird students in school didn't you, getting the similarity?

Anonymous , 15 May 2017What does innovation mean to you?Anything that is clearly benefitting people and has never been done before.
Gimmick is something new that either does not help or even holds back humanity.
For example putting the capacity of handle VR on a phone is innovation.
4k that works as a 1080p while on VR is a gimmick.
Both the same tech, one used as sth innovative, the second used merely as inflated numbers (gimmick).

Also -BTW- LG was like that until LG G5 (each generation was better in most of everything than the last) and Apple is like that still (iPhone 7 is clearly better in everything from 6s and 6s is so from 6, etc). So it's not Chinese companies. Samsung did that until Note 4 too.
I use the cam button instead of touching the screen for photos and vids. I place my thumb on the lower bezel to use cam.
I also keep my thumbs on the bezels when I play RR3.

They have nothing good to compared to S8 and XZP.
Simple phone + powerful cpu + 6gb ram.
What else? Do they bring all the tecnology like the other 2?
Insert a SD835 inside Moto G5 and it is the same of a Mi6 or OP5
Poor sound, poor cam, midrange display quality. Slow updates to new SO ( Mi phones, OP2 is still 6.0.1)
Check this camera comparison between S8 and XZS.
Xzs has better selfie cam, stabilization, day light shots, and night shots are not far off.
[deleted post]Both S8 and Xperia XZ Premium are sorry excuses of flagships.
There was a time that each and every aspect of the phone was bettered in genuine way between gens. Heck it still happens look at Xiaomi or OnePlus (each gen is better than the last in everything).
But Sony and Samsung took a hike. First they use the same ram and the same pixel density. Secondly they use the same or smaller batteries. Thirdly photography has not really improved, according to Dx0 mark at least, most phones have pretty much hit a wall there for the last year or two (only small differences).
Fourthly both have bad solutions of the issue that phones have grown too big, Sony ignored the issue altogether by retaining the big and heavy design, S8 solved it but in a way that is bothersome to users (screen too tall for many apps/media, easy to touch by mistake)
Point is that both have failed the users. So those fights are pointless. There are better counter-examples than S8, there are better phones than Xperia XZ too...
Why BEZEL ? here ur answered... Top n bottom bezel
In this video u can see camera sensor size is big..so thts resn sony used top n bottom big bezel...sony has big sensors than others

Well it seems..there's just two smartphone everyone's talking bout right now..One S8 and the Other XZ Premium..!
Come on haters..even you know XZ Premium is the only true one-on-one rival to S8..!

As for me , not so, not by a long shot, too much information is lost in those night shots.
Fans would disagree, but the result is ... clear as day. Most phones (Xperia XZ Premium included) are not up to snuff for night-time photography.
You're better off with a mirror-less, I find those results as bad as 10 year old phone cameras did during the day...

Read what GSMArena said, that should suffice. And then compare photos via the photo comparison tool. You have to be your own judge.
I would love to see further exploration into RAM on the camera sensor. I feel that's where most of this device (and the XZs) innovation lies, and it is on Sony to make that a big standout feature, it's their IMX400 sensor. As for this bezel discussion I see, meh, the initial point of bezels (before being able to hide everything behind a touchscreen...Mi Mix, and Aquos), were for speakers, sensors, flash (if applicable), etc. On this device, it sort of makes sense, stereo speakers...though lackluster overall, with the other sensors can make for a big forehead and chin. And who knows maybe there's some people out there getting that chrome model to use them bezels as a mirror.
