So no OIS, a 4k display that 95 percent of the time will run in 1080p and even then the battery life is only 72h, plus low light isn't that good and the speaker is below average?
Yep the S8 is pretty much better in all aspects just not 960fps camera mode.
Classy phone. Period. Stop wasting your time comparing it to other phones. Again, This is the classiest phone this year. It's just gorgeous

I just read the gsma gs8 review, some users experience during the first week the camera is not that good and now reading through XZP review many people said the sample camera is not good, which one i should trust to?
Please help to convince me!
meandonlyme, 13 May 2017Dude, don't kid yourself. There's so much artificial post-processing sharpening going on with ... moreYup. Returning mine today for precisely this reason - the camera results are artificial looking on the S8.
Unfortunately the battery life and the sunlight contrast ratio just doesn't cut it. The S8 is miles ahead in talk time and video playback. There is no way around it.
Mark, 13 May 2017I have checked the photo comparison tool ZX Premium vs. Galaxy S8 and have to say that Sony's ... moreNonsense. The only way toy could objectively say this is you completely ignore the wildly different focal lengths and the higher mp count on the Sony (which pulls you further into the image at 100 crop than is so on the Samsung). Convert both to 12mp and account for the FOV. The Sony easily beats the S8.
Anonymous, 13 May 2017you are wrong. admit your mistake??
I am absolutely right.
Find someone else to compare worst available outcoming shots, so sammy fnboys would feel better.
No Xperia user uses hardshutter in lowlight, as all know the shake produces lousy results. We all use softshutter and some steady hand.
You can complain about Xperia cam ease of use maybe, but on photo quality camera can produce, not.
Can this phone dethrone the camera king?
Anonymous, 13 May 2017probably kamikaze. they come to the battlefield with ugly design, ugly ui, and average feature... moreKeep it to yourself dude. Move on dude, Sony rocks. Moreover, we wouldn't buy a Sony that look likes Samsung or Apple. Each maker has their own uniqueness. Face it, Sony delivered with this XZ premium.
Claudiu.Lucian, 13 May 2017Sony Xperia XZ Premium, this is an incredible phone! From the beginning to the end, the review... moreXZ Premium is the better choice because of the price tag that is cheaper than S8 and have slightly better specs than S8
Tann Hauser, 13 May 2017This kid compared auto mode nonhandheld. Stop embarrassing yourself. you are wrong. admit your mistake
Sony Xperia XZ Premium, this is an incredible phone! From the beginning to the end, the review says that the "Premium" name it's not a marketing term, it's reality. The design is beautiful, the 4K HDR display is unbelievable(and the single one on the market), the battery life is good, the performance is top notch, the true stereo speakers sound great and I think clarity it's more important than loudness for a phone (anyway a good external speaker is louder, a pair of good headphones is clearer), the camera is the one of the best on the market (nowadays if you choose a Pixel, a XZ Premium or a S8 all of them will shoot awesome photos), the low light photos may not have the best sharpness or noise, but the colours and true blacks are stunning, the videos are sharp, coloured and with the best stabilisation, the 720p 960fps slow-motion videos make this great phone pop in the sea of flagships. I really like this phone and considere buying it later this year when the price drops a bit.
10 hours battery life. how to use our phone after 4pm. its only 24% left ....

There's so much artificial post-processing sharpening going on with the S8, it's a joke. If you like that, then it's cool. But don't think it's some kind of a miracle.
Alot of fanboys and sony hate here. I think the phone looks great. Battery could be better
