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.

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.

they got sooo mmaany comments and successfully sold their devices every year.
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.
Mark, 13 May 2017I have checked the photo comparison tool ZX Premium vs. Galaxy S8 and have to say that Sony's ... moreIf the parameters were the same, I would give you the reason, but this is not the case.
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
Would like to consider their phones If they make the bezel size like LG G2....

Less than 10%.
Not enough to give up on flat screen..
OEMs make much money when screens get damaged. Edge display costs more.
Im my country is almost the price of the whole S6
Ciro123, 13 May 20175 xperias top 10 dxomark trollYeah.You are right.Many Xperia are one of the best camera smartphone.

No Samsung phone looks premium..
During our Xmas party last year, a cousing asked me to use my wifi.
I got her S6 Edge to set it.
S6 looks cheaper than Z3+. Way cheaper... I felt I was holding a 300 dollars phone against a 700 one.
When you look at XZP, it looks to cost 50% more than S8 at least.
Luminous Chrome looks like a diamond.
This is a Sony Xperia phone review.
Why the comment section is flooded by Samsung irrelevants?
Do they relate here?
I can see that Sony articles get flooded the fastest and most with comments within such time. This article was just yesterday and now there's almost 300 comments here, while Samsung and Apple, or any articles at this time would typically just be around 200 at maximum

Anonymous , 13 May 2017Jdi and Joled are different. Jdi try to acquire Joled, but I am not sure if they did or not. If im not mistaken, joled is jdi, jdi formed joled to popularise joled among japanese manufacturers
Yann, 13 May 2017Wow! A lot of words, but where is the meaning of them?
You call curved screen progress? Maybe... more*A phone would totally make you a man. Wow amazing, such manliness in you, roll eyes*
Back to topic
I think by far, XZ premium is amazing. They are totally for a different market, some want more screen, some want a gorgeous 4K. Design wise, its all about preference. Both are stunning in their own way. I wish the chrome would stick to the black front finish like the Z5 premium tho...
