Anonymous, 14 May 2017Still the sound-chip (for headphones usage) isn't flagship-worthy on this phone. And the talk time is a whopping 6 hours less than the S8 and same with video playback, also 6 hours less. No way round that.

AnonD-668972, 14 May 2017Hi nice writers and good debaters, are you willing to break guiness book of world record for "... moreI am 100% with you my friend.But if you notice, most of these poor haters coming here to bash are mostly doing it in Sony flagships.I have no idea of why this is happening.They are coming here to bash the device and call it trash but they spend so much of their times to comment for such a "trash" device.Fanboys are just pathetic.
AnonD-668972, 14 May 2017Hi nice writers and good debaters, are you willing to break guiness book of world record for "... moreYup, you are right.
XZ Premium has unbeliavable quality camera be it daylight or lowlight, be it main or front one, superb 4k hdr screen, extremely well optimized UI that performs fastest, great and most complete feature rich sound system, and a decent batterylife of 8hr 15min SoT under heavy usage, and with added qnovo that prolongs its endurance level upto 2 years without degradation.
Overall superb package.
3,2,1...look them hate replies coming in like rain.
Hi nice writers and good debaters, are you willing to break guiness book of world record for "the most flooded by hatred comment sections" category
Calm down guys no need to be rude!
Please erase the out of topic negative comments like calling someone trash or garbage. We only need constructive critiques not insult!

The only brand which should be worried by Sony fan support is Apple, yeah it's nothing in comparison with S8 but it is much better than iPhone 7/7+. If more android brands will keep coming strong, Apple will be in a difficult situation as the isheeps will start to feel obsolete with Apple devices, I'm not a sheep but I bought iPhone 7 after what happened to Note 7 and regretting till now. I used to say people have only two choices Samsung and Apple but Apple forced me to change my statement when I spent on it and found nothing except a poor display, average performance, bad service and absolutely no smart feature, Sony Xperia XZ premium is not as good as the S8 but it's truly is very good alternative for iPhone.
[deleted post]Just don't look beyond the camera first of all. Cause camera was meant to be one of the best thing of this phone, but in fact its one of the worst, but if you look beyond the camera then I think even I might consider them Chinese OEMs like Ximi or sorts. A great phone for losers anyway, though as no one cares about them it doesn't really matter.
I was still hopeful for this phone anyway, but whatever. Same old same old, waste of a phone, and it will cost premium, that's even more pathetic.

I'm talking more though about the kind of unbreakable bias that leads people to like or dislike brands inspite of bad examples of those same criteria. Or those that will attack the features or technology of other brands even when those things are implemented well, simply as are they coming from a rival brand.
You needn't look far in the comments section on sites like this to see examples of this endless nonsense.
Anonymous, 14 May 2017yeah you re right. sony never tries. and never innovates in terms of designs. thats why always... moreSony never learned because Sony never HAD to learn.The never had problems with batteries or red tint displays or anything functional with their devices.You are trying to make the big failures of Samsung successes.
Anonymous, 14 May 2017sony is so popular. because never change its ugly big bezel designs since years ago. lol.That coming from the same person with iphone 7, huawei p10, google pixel, htc u ultra, etc,
Pretty much only 4 brand is hyping bezelless which is Xiaomi,sharp, lg and samsung. Xiaomi and sharp aside, samsung and lg pretty much dont have anything to give this year so they went "how about streching the screen so it cover almost all the top and bottom bezel and call it bezelless design?" Since these two company didn't have front firing stereo speaker nor a big camera sensor to fit in rear and front, they doesn't have much work to do, while sony can't just ditch their hard developed imx400 and rather large front facer and stereo speaker just to ride along with the trend that hardly practical
The real innovation in screen stb will belong to sharp cause they achieved it without going with weird aspects ratio and call it "future" and thanks to xiaomi cause bringing it to international level
Bezel are bad, it's true, if Sony don't use it properly but the thing is sony put it to good use with all those space, a bigger sensor with extra stack, big front facer with autofocus(even the phone with "selfie expert" moniker don't have it) stereo speaker, etc
At least XZP still have headphone jack unlike a certain brand that have large bezel but still lacking one
AnonD-664474, 14 May 2017Still gets popular without even trying. Samsung is wasting money just to become popular. Lolyeah you re right. sony never tries. and never innovates in terms of designs. thats why always suffers bad sales. and trolled by many people. lol.
samsung tries very hard to innovate, learns alot from the past note7 fiasco, fixing the red tint problem immediately, and now a lot more people trust samsung. in the past.. people hate touchwiz. now they love it.
Tidy looks, Total experience in an android phone = XZp
Good job Sony
Tann Hauser, 14 May 2017Im being sarcastic, to fun out those better seller_better phone nonsns folk. Yeah if it sells more doesn't mean it's best. It means people are actually shelling out their hard earned money for it. It won't happen unless you do 3 things right
1 generate a cult following (not possible for any other brand than you know who)
2 give people what they want
3 Bombard them with excessive marketing and coax retailers to sell your phone for High commission. The company that's third does this perfectly and to some extent 2nd point too(good build, selfie and OK battery life) so they sell. Look at these points and think about brand which does not sell. Where are they wrong. You'll get your answer
Lex79, 14 May 2017And which category do you think you fall into I wonder?
From the tone of your ramblings bel... moreYour analysis about haters is wrong. One can hate a phone because it obviously cuts corners and perpetuates a fraud.
Look at S8 for example. A downgrade in battery, hardly an upgrade on performance or pixel density, only notable change is the taller screen (which on in itself is not very useful) so as someone who loves past Samsung phones I feel I have every right to criticize how fraudulent they've become.
Same with Sony. They evolve every 3 generations, literally. They keep for example the same battery life for ages, sometimes it regresses, the keep the same design despite its flaws , etc...
And sometimes a company that used to make steps forwards each generation suddenly stops and takes a step back. Look at G6, worse camera than G5 , a lot worse battery (it's sealed, so no spares) and same performance. All those are worth of critique and it's not hating, they are just bad ideas...
