Bunyip22, 14 May 2017I hope you are right. I'd love nothing more than Sony, Apple, Nokia etc to bring out a mobile ... moreThe reason that Sony doesn't seem to get the best processing is because the hardware isn't capable of producing their desired results either.
I can clearly see from Sony's progression (from XZ to XZ Premium) that they want to lessen the noise reduction algorithm because they themselves know that it also destroys the details hence why the XZ Premium is noisier than the XZ but gives off more resolution.
Like I've said, a good 12mp 1/2" camera paired with f1.8, 1.7um pixel size, and OIS would surely boost the image quality of Xperia flagships. Needless to say, Sony can finally use lower ISO values in dark situations and get the HDR+ like processing for every situation.
L0lip0p, 14 May 2017If im not mistaken, joled is jdi, jdi formed joled to popularise joled among japanese manufacturers Joled is not Jdi, and that is what I thought at first. Jdi has to acquire Joled if they want to make oled.

I was expecting the XZP camera to be at least on par with the S8+ but low light performance just isn't close. If Samsung S8 had that low light performance I wouldn't buy it and would be hammering them as well. Any flagship phone takes a good photo in good light. It's the dynamic range and low light performance that is the true test in my opinion.
overpriced.... poor display (low contrast , white colors is blue,low sunlight ). poor battery lifE,NO IR REMOTE ,NO FM RADIO , poor speakers,BAD CAMERA SOFTWARE, HUGE BEZZELES

Got smaller aperture. Smaller pixel size. No "HDR+"-like processing. No OIS.
And still managed to capture something usable if not besting out. I guarantee to you, an IFA 2017 Sony flagship will get a 1/2" 12mp f1.8 camera with 1.5-1.7um pixel size and OIS presence with the same DRAM of the XZs/XZ Premium - surely will blow Samsung away.
Anonymous, 14 May 2017lol. that is only true for samsung and apple device dude, also xiaomi.
they got sooo mmaany c... moreNot true.
No advertisement other than on their social accounts.
Barely available anywhere.
Not too much mind-blowing features.
And the XZ still won as the most selling flagship phone of Q4 2016 right behind the Note 7 (after the demise).
If they do the right marketing, they will surely nail it again.
In marketing, if you believe something, nothing will be impossible.
Youtube already supports HDR, the "Jacob + Katie Schwarz" channel has HDR videos that are also available for mobile and "The HDR Channel" also has 4K HDR content
Both, the S8 and the Xperia XZ Premium have a Wide Color Gamut screen, the colors between the two devices is similar, the biggest difference is in black pixels, but it really is a matter of personal preference. I prefer Triluminos over Super Amoled because the skin tones are more realistic, a bit less orange looking, and the reds are deeper.
The S8 crop the image for full screen experience, nothing good.

Galaxy S8: https://attach.mobile01.com/attach/201704/mobile01-6a5aeb50434c5c596e960a38ec6b3a5f.jpg
No just Album and Video are in 4K, 3rd party video players or Youtube are in native 4K when is available, and supports 4K at 60 fps (if is HDR just 30):
In the S8 the higher resolution is 1440p
Bonus: Xperia XZP supports Hybrid Log-Gamma / BT.2100
The camera of the S8 is very good, but the XZPremium also is, the progress of Sony in this section is undoubted, photography in low light is still a problem for all smartphoes without exceptions. Both do a good job, each with their strengths and weaknesses, there are many external factors that can alter the outcome. The S8 has more details but also more luminance noise, sharpness artifacts and black halos.
The Xperia XZP has less luminance noise, more chromatic noise, and does not produce black halos, but loses a little detail in the shadows.

The only premium phone that comes with 4K HDR screen and 960 fps, adding the new great camera in both hardware and software. Just go back to your cave!

"sony doesnt have any special features other than the camera"
Ohh really?,So the motion eye camera has been on the non-sony devices?.
Sony is better than Google.The most stable android phones
people who prefer simplicity and dont care much about user interface choose google's devices and oneplus.
people who want more features and better non-stock ui choose samsung.
people who prefer more features and cheaper price choose china brands.
people who prefer simplicity but dont like android choose iphone.
so sony doesnt have place.. avoided by most people. all flagships have good cameras. sony doesnt have any special features other than the camera
Equinox96, 14 May 2017If the parameters were the same, I would give you the reason, but this is not the case.
XZP: ... moreOr you could just be honest and admit that the low light performance in those XZP studio pics is terrible... The noise is so bad they look out of focus.
I guarantee gsmarena takes dozens of photos and picks the best.

sony is different. got so many negative comments and always failed to sell the devices every year. even lose to small china brands like vivo and xiaomi.

XZP: ISO 800 , 1/32s
S8: ISO 250 1/10s
Honestly the Xperia XZ Premium does a better job considering that the iso is higher
