This is a nice tr... moreSony is just being careful because of what happened to Samsung last year.
That 72h isn't really that bad for a 4K screen. G6 has 0.2" larger screen, but has 300 pixels less than the XZ Premium and still averages the same endurance rating. We'll see how the Mi 6 does, but I seriously doubt it will blow the S8/S8+ away too.
Nothing beats sAMOLED's efficiency hence why Sony is moving with JDI AMOLED this late 2017 or early 2018

Bunyip22, 13 May 2017Actually I'd say that the majority of photos are taken in less than good light... Indoors, res... moreHuh? People take photos usually in good lighting scenarios. If they take photos in the dark, they use the thing called "flashlight" because it's guarantees that you'll never get any image so bright in dark environments.
What you have showed me is showing the S8 doing better in low light, but it barely outpaced it tbh. If anything, the difference was surprisingly negligible that I'd think it's only a comparison of the S8 and the G6's camera - that how close the battle. Samsung wins in low light, but you have to give it to Sony for improving the most in low light. Seriously speaking, that's way better than what we used to get before. More room for improvements, but it's almost there for Sony. The IFA 2017 Sony flagship will surely match the whole competition of low light if not really coming out of top
Even the regular S8 with larger 5.8inch Display got better battery life.
This is a nice try though by Sony, next time they must put the correct battery size for such a resolution. :)
Shadow Snypa786, 13 May 2017The S8 with a 1440p display and is 5.8 display.
The S8 plus with a 1440p display and a 6.3 i... moreMaybe you don't understand how it works.
S8 has 577 ppi. Set it to QHD+ and the battery is powering 577 ppi. Set it to FHD+ and the battery is still powering the 577 ppi. Same story goes to the XZ Premium. And they did lower the CPU power to save more battery because 4K will surely drain it quickly.
But benchmarks mean nothing in real world. You're not gonna buy a flagship phone to play Crysis, would you?
Let's just see how fast they are in speed tests. XZs already blew the S8 away, and so will the XZ Premium, mark my words

Jesse Clark, 13 May 2017What about the 72 hours battery rating of Xperia XZ premium in front of 88 hours of Galaxy S8,... more200 pixels less than twice the S8's ppi, less efficient processor (E8895>SD835 efficiency wise), and inferior screen technology (IPS LCD isn't as efficient, but JDI AMOLED is on its way to blow Samsung's s sAMOLED soon).
Don't you wonder why the G6 with larger battery cannot beat the S8 in battery endurance, too?
Shadow Snypa786, 13 May 2017No s8 have a crappy amoled pentile
Still rated the best display on any smartphone so if the S... moreNo!! S8 have a display crappy amoled pentile.
2k amoled = full hd mid ranger.
S8 oversatured and irreals colors.
The sound s8 is mono the sound xzp is stereo hight quality.
The xzp have best camera in thr market, the best vídeo and stabilitation and best slowmotion.
S8 is a loser
Bunyip22, 13 May 2017Actually I'd say that the majority of photos are taken in less than good light... Indoors, res... moreThe complaints over low light don't extend to indoor shots in dim or artificial lighting - numerous reviews (of the P and the S) have so far praised these as just as good as daylight.
The complaints seem to extend only to night time landscapes which we can all agree are handled better on the S8. But hop the XZP into manual to dial in ISO and take a picture at night with any kind of decent artificial light and the Sony does a fine job, as GSMA, Recombu and AA have all noted.

Shadow Snypa786, 13 May 2017Let the OP5 come out 1st and get real proper scores out.
And as for real life speed and perfo... moreI do believe to what you have said that speed isn't everything.
But you must take other aspects into considerations as well.
XZs has weaker battery life because of less efficient processor and inferior screen technology.
Its camera is not as strong in low light, but ONLY in low light. Daylight, no doubt goes to the XZs, be it video or photo. Stabilization must not be asked anymore - no one rivals Sony's professional SteadyShot.
I never saw Samsung excel in audio quality. XZs got stereo speakers, which if was only a little louder, can smash the ones of the S8/S8+. To mention as well the Hi-Res audio support with LDAC, ClearAudio+, DSEE HX, and aptx HD, which mostly Samsung lacks.
It's still a shame for a more powerful device to get outpaced in speed so easily, but I'm not blaming Samsung for the unnecessary stuff they used to put into their phones. Feature richness, I can give it to Samsung, but not like every feature of it will be used all the time - XZs still does its job as a smartphone, and at least we can just agree that Android is a more capable OS than iOS
Shadow Snypa786, 13 May 2017Superb stabilisation then why did GSMarena even say they disappointed it doesnt have OIS. The... moreWatch the footage yourself: it doesn't matter that GSMA gripes over a spec when the results are superior on the XZP, which they clearly are.
OIS is good for stabilisation of photos but digital stabilisation is far superior for video. I can attest this on my own usage of the S8 I'm typing this on now - it's quite juddery on footfall and there's quite a bit of ghosting when you pan. OIS does nothing to correct this.
And last time I checked neither the S8 or XZP have gone through DXO.
Timaustin2k, 13 May 2017And in good light - where 80-90% of photos and video are taken - the XZP simply beats the S8. ... moreActually I'd say that the majority of photos are taken in less than good light... Indoors, restaurants, shady areas, photos where the XZP dynamic range struggles with light and dark areas.
Either way the low light performance isn't up to scratch (see the following link) and Sony fans really shouldn't be defending it.

XZs with 820 is faster real world.
And oneplus 5... moreLet the OP5 come out 1st and get real proper scores out.
And as for real life speed and performance?? Sure its faster but speed doesnt necessarily make the phone its everything.
Samsung S8 can defeat it easily in battery life even tho its pushing out more pixels.
Has a better display and better audio quality. Even better camera and video recorder.
But you open apps 1 second faster lol
dirknelson, 13 May 2017The last time I've checked in DXOmark, x performance also got 88 score. Yeah not the Xperia XZ premium though which is what we referring to since this is the XZ review not the Xperia X performance.
And yes the Xperia X performance camera has been rated the same as Samsung S7 duo :D just not the XZ Premium LOL
What about the 72 hours battery rating of Xperia XZ premium in front of 88 hours of Galaxy S8, despite it got all the so called gimmick features which are actually next gen tech not gimmicks
