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.
Anonymous, 13 May 2017sony dare to be ugly. i think they are doing harakiri. LOL.probably kamikaze. they come to the battlefield with ugly design, ugly ui, and average features. they know they will lose and die. but they still do it.
Anonymous, 13 May 2017Both images aren't even of same subject. Also lightning condition is vastly different??
Lighting conditions and lowlight scenario are exactly the same...
Furthermore I previously provided crops of XZ Prem vs S8 to show preserved detail and processing, which no one serious a out photography can say are better on S8, except lie, and with only diff wb and exposure.
So to prove anyone coming and saying XZ Prem is crap in lowlight vs S8/S7... is full of crap actually.
Let see what is that my problem in XZ Premium!
*Auto Restart!? No
*Red tint in display!?? No
*Bleeding image!??? No
*Wireless charging issue!???? No
*Having problem in audio output!???? No
All right, What is that my problem with XZ Premium!? Why I hate you Best Smartphone in MWC!? Really why??
Xz premium destroy s8, s8 have a obsolet and bored camera, a crapmoled display pentline whith low resolution and poor subpixeles.
A stupid ratio and lagwizz
Poor and later updates.
Xz premium king camera, best video and stabilitation, best slowmotion best front camera and best camera.
Samsung fanboy cry now.
Was hyped for this but it seems like it has the same issues as the XZ (average battery life, weak speakers).

In case of android world pixels would like to talk to you. Also in audio I'd rather trust gsma ratings rather than of a guy insulting people. Cameras are basically a tie nowadays and design is matter of opinion I like design of xzp but many won't same applies to s8 I see it as ergonomic nightmare

Performance, software and support, audio, battery rating and longevity, camera, a lot.
Maybe watch some test before commenting will help aid your ego.
[deleted post]sony cant crush anymore. dont have enough energy to do it. already crushed by better brands like apple samsung and china brands.
Xperia M5, C5 Ultra, X, X performance, XA Ultra and Xperia XZ also have autofocus in selfie camera!
Now Xperia XZs, XZ premium, XA1 Ultra and XA1 have autofocus selfie camera!
Also Xperia XZ, XZs, XZ premium have 5-axis stabilization for selfie camera and Xperia XA Ultra and XA1 Ultra have optical stabilization (OIS) for selfie camera!!!
Sony smartphones have best selfie cameras
Beast phone of 2017, but I feel sorry for myself when I can't afford to buy it as of now. I'll definitely buy in about two-three years when price decreases.
Bunyip22, 13 May 2017Xzp is better in those pics??.. Really? Those photos highlight my comments about low light per... moreRubbish. The S8 does not resolve more detail or have better colour reproduction. Indeed, the colours outputted on the S8 are far too saturated in almost all cases. This from an S8 owner: the camera on this thing is over rated.
Bunyip22, 13 May 2017I have to disagree, I can see no visible difference on the S8+ between 1080p and 1440p so i ru... moreSo in short terms, it's the QHD hype starters to be blamed.
Sony moved to 4K because people are sick of 1080p being a lower resolution, and when they did, everyone's complaining.
People will never get satisfied. They always will have something to complain about, especially the non-Sony fans.

--It's not but it's where most people will use their camera phones to.
Do you wonder sometimes why photographers always use a light source before taking photos in a somewhat dim environment? Smartphones have built-in flashes for a reason. It's pointless to have it when it's not going to be used at all. It's just wasting space.
"there are many other features one need in a smartphone and Xperia Xzp lacks in about everything in front of Galaxy S8"
--Like what? Cameras are only made to take photos. What does the XZ Premium lack against the S8 when both basically do the job they're made for? Ah that stinky Bixby that does everything Google Now has already been doing for years. I get it.
"bragging about 19mp camera only which is no better than S8 won't make it a worthy smartphone."
--So you're just trying to say that a 12mp 1/2.5" sensor camera is better than a 19mp 1/2.3" sensor camera. Makes sense.
