[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.

OK . So lets get into FINAL conclusion. In your opinion. NON Haters Opinion. Do you think that XZ Premium is equipped with a good camera ??? Maybe lets leave the night photos. I have now 808 Pureview and hardly ever do night shots. But in a good light. Is XZ P a good contender ?
[deleted post]Awch, another fail, where are the people who were criticizing the artifacts of the xz.

Thoughtl the conversation you were on about between me and the anonymous fellow regarding bezels and design was not what I would call a verbal war, but just a friendly exchange.
Lex79, 15 May 2017And yours hold an abundance of relevance I suppose??
Its a discussion, a bit off topic I gr... moreIts obvious that there is not much relevance in my comments. I dont want to add something to what had been already added.
Main thought was that i came here to read some relevant comments especially about low light photo quality. And the only thing i see is the verbal wars.
AnonD-669520, 15 May 2017I am trying to understand whats the point of this discussion ? One side wants to convince othe... more That was not my argument.
My argument was that nobody likes bezels, that's a statement not an opinion. Sometimes people dislike the drawbacks of the bezeless designs, but as they are being defeated more and more people will get into the bezeless style.
I !Ade the same prediction back when blackberry was king. I predicted that blackberry will die because nodoby likes physical keyboards. Even those that they pretend that they do. And lo and behold , once and autocorrect and swipe became good enough people switched an masse.
Let me repeat, nobody like bezels. I'm dropping knowledge here.
Once they create a good enough palm rejection see people moving en masse away from heavily bezeled phones.
