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.

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
I have checked the photo comparison tool ZX Premium vs. Galaxy S8 and have to say that Sony's photo quality is a joke! They talko so much about their photo features, yet they still can output a decent image even in good light - in this review here the samples look like oil paintings in 100% zoom. And in the comparison tool:
you can clearly seen that the S8 outperforms the XZ Premium, both in good and low light.

Stop embarrassing yourself. This is the shot right?
The label right below the the image reads this:
"Low-light shots taken on a tripod (Intelligent Auto)"
Guys come on now, new competition. Compare automatic mode's handheld shots with shots taken from a tripod, and more importantly of different scenes, that's much more important. And I just had lunch, all these laughter now, uff...
AnonD-77443, 13 May 2017Your previous link is a great example of why the XZP is poor at low light.
You are noticing diff exposure, not dynamic range fella.
Well, as long as I debate someone who "knows" photo basics, I know Im on the right path.

However. Even in moderate light the S8 is noticeable better even without pixel peeking.

I should delete shows like Big Bang Theory and sorts, cause comedic elements are too much in this place.
Tann Hauser, 13 May 2017??
Lighting conditions and lowlight scenario are exactly the same...
Furthermore I previou... moreYour previous link is a great example of why the XZP is poor at low light.
The main problem is the dynamic range. The XZP can't handle the difference in bright and dark areas. Look at the sign on the left on the last 2 photos. You can't even tell it is a person on the XZP photo.
Aside from that the white balance us poor and detail isn't as good.
It's the S8+ by a long way.
Sony Xperia phones are catered only towards die-hard fans and loyalists of the brands these days. Sony will never ever gain new customers unless they innovate and tries to be cool. And no, adding a new camera sensor with mediocre image processing isn't innovation. Sony just keeps recycling their old phones without adding more features and improving the UI design. If I want stock Android, I'd buy a Google Pixel. But if I want more advanced features, I'd buy a Galaxy. There is really no point getting a Sony phone. It offers no real advantage over what the competition has.
