[deleted post]It's not a lie to say that Sony hardly upgrades her phones. It's demonstratably true. I honestly wonder where this company finds her fanbase. Probably PlayStation fans and/to Ericsson fan that don't yet know that neither of the two teams has/had anything to do with the present Sony mobile department, hence the unearned adulation.
Phones should be judged on their merits. And this one doesn't have many. Just put it side by side w the two year old phone of their own (that his was meant to replace) and you struggle to see important difference.
This is not hating , this is supporting the closure of a company that gave up on innovation.

everything's about this beautiful smartphone in World's Class just because that is: Made By Sony, you will love your XZp! wait and see
Some of the comments are saying that Xperia XZP takes a more real shot than S8. I know nothing about photography, but to those who use DSLR I like to ask, at auto mode which is more closer to DSLR (auto) quality, S8 or XZP? I am not sure if this was a stupid question or not, but I really like to know how much post-processing is done.
And, is there any necessity to defend the XZP or bash S8? Both look great. Why give haters the ground!!!

Apparently this is what you're doing.

The high number of comments just show how disappointed people are but there are some due hard fanboys who is mocking everyone commenting on here with many comments causing the comments to go high in numbers, Sony used to be great company when it was Sony Ericsson, they were providing amazing phones for classy people when Nokia was fooling people with same boring phones but now there's nothing amazing or classy about these boring phones from Xperia
Tann Hauser, 15 May 2017Wow, we are at 470 comments. This phone is most definitely the biggest hit of the year. I agree.

AnonD-664474, 15 May 2017Based on my self-GSMArena statistics, the most hated brands are (from most to least):
1. Sony... moreAbout your top five.
Samsung used to push hardware. Nowadays they don't yet their prices are even higher. They're easily the worse value for money of the bunch, that's why it is hated. Especially since she gives up one her phone fast.
Sony is frankly an average phone maker that is praised to high heavens. Naturally that gets many people angry. They're middling in most of everything yet insist on making the same mistake that makes them middling. They're nothing spectacular yet extremely conservative.
HTC looks a lot like Sony. A middling company that used to get a lot of praise for bad reasons. Refuse to change despite the low sales, keep ffata mistakes on their phones for generations and make semi fly foolish mistakes out of nowhere (like that atrocious SD810 phone last year). An extremely conservative company that is sinking.
Apple hate I don't get it. They're the only company of the company that has continuously pushed better hardware and software between generation. They have a constant 30-40% raise in cpu/GPU performance , their battery continuously raises too, they do not give in to gimmicks (excessive resolutions). They support their phones forever.
Their only issue is their excessive bezels which do harms ergonomy and their hard to modify OS (which is an issue to enthusiasts). Still I think that Apple is wrongly up there.
LG is one more company that is wrongly up there because up until G6 they had a continuous upward trajectory. G6 was the first phone of theirs that was a clear step back (sealed battery, less wide screen, same performance, astronomical pricing,). So I guess they get push back because of G6 alone.
Xiaomi is another company that continuously push software and hardware. They support their phones for years (for example mi2 still gets bug fixes, security updates), always try to use the greatest hardware and batteries. Only cameras are subpar. So I guess they only get hatred because some people are slightly racist against the Chinese.
In short only half of your top 5/6 is up there for a good reason. The rest are only persecuted by fanboys. Sony, HTC and Samsung are indeed three companies that cut way too many corners though and should be critiqued for it.
Droid, 15 May 2017Samsung is the most hated brand. Nobody care about sony. Go on samsung topics and read. Haters... moreWell I don't really care what anyone says. In my opinion Sony is the best and I won't opt for anything different.
Everyone has their own thoughts regarding different things.
I will go for XZ Premium or XA1 Ultra.
AnonD-669130, 15 May 2017Samsung processing isnt better:
S8:https://attach.mobile01.com/attach/201704/mobile01-8b3c... moreNone old your post answered mine. Yes Samsung cut many corners leading to the worst flagship mrelease of theirs, S8. I'm not comparing this Xperia with S8. Maybe it's only S8 that manages to be even worse this generation.
I'm critical of most companies that release phones in the west. They think that we're fools and cut corners. They used to innovate and evolve their phones between gens, nowadays there is hardly a change between gens, they could as well all be phones of the same gen w slight variations.
So what you said is a non argument.
Sony could easily fix their phone, their didn't
Samsung could easily fix their phone , they didn't
Both are being kills from what Note 4 was for its time. Heck it's probably still a better phone if you discount night photopgrahy.
Also 75% BtS ratio is not "bezeless" ... your fanmboyism is showing because you didn't even read my post.
Xperia phones are excessive, those make the phones gargantuan which makes them hard to use one handed, that's just a fact, wake up!
