AnonD-72356, 13 May 2017Compare both displays side by side and you'll know how superior the S8 wqHD+ is. I already have seen the S7 Edge display, that follows the same pixel pattern as the S8/S8+'s panel. Then I also saw 2K IPS LCD phones like the G4, V10, and G5. Also saw 1080p IPS LCD panels like the Z5, Xperia X, XZ, XA Ultra, and iPhone 7 Plus.
S7 Edge looks the most saturated of all, but while sharpness isn't too noticeable, it definitely IS when side-by-side. Still your choice if you like that pixel matrix. Nothing's going to be lost if you choose it, but you must know that the difference is there.
Besides, other than improved color accuracy, contrast, etc., sharpness remains the same between the S7/S7 Edge and S8/S8+ right?
Feels like they went down with sharpness because the S7 Edge got more ppi density than the S8 while being smaller in size. Smaller screen size means pixels are more dense so no individual pixels are gonna be visible. S8 got a larger footprint so pixels will spread all over and they (the pixels) are farther away from each other to cover the larger area.
Just because it's called QHD+ doesn't mean it's better than a standard QHD. It's in that form because of an unconventional 18.5:9 ratio, which is very rare in content industry.

Low light is an extremely important part of a mobile camera. Most top of the line mobile cameras take almost identical shots in day time, its low light where most of them fall apart. And this camera falls apart hilariously.
Almost all the current flagship cameras, and cameras from last year will outperform this new Sony phone easy, so there is that, game over.

If you're a low light master, get a DSLR or any full frame digital camera. Even the so-called "best camera phone" will be obsolete in comparison to those mighty large sensors and optics. If anything, the closest one so far are the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020, so sad that MS lost interest of keeping the support to those beasts. Can't wait to see a Nokia flagship camera phone with the superb PureView 1" sensor and Carl Zeiss f1.8 optics in 12mp resolution. Don't need a lossless zoom, the pixels wiill eventually get larger and you'd get better zooming details because the pixels will grow larger for an unparalleled low light capability.
AnonD-195762, 13 May 2017OK all the trolls are bitching about bezels, at least it doesn't look like every other android... moreBut it looks like every phone released by Sony in past years. I can't tell the difference between Xzp or any other Sony flagship phone came in 3-4 years. S8 with its beautiful curved infinity display makes it the best looking, out of the crowd easily recognizable phone.
AnonD-77443, 13 May 2017Dude. Those Sony XZP low light pics are terrible. You should stop using them as a "good" example. Don't worry my dear brother.
Sony is just starting to join the low light kings' camp.
Don't worry because soon the next 2017 Sony flagship will finally be on par with Samsung and the whole competition in photography department.
They are already killing the videography department and photography is soon to follow.
Mark my words if you want and a pleasant day to you. :-)

XZ Prem is better in all aspects here, except higher exposure, which can easily be lowered in automode.
You are talking nonsns here.

God those low light auto samples are actually scary to look at and hard to believe in mid 2017. Probably next year they might come up with something which might rival the two year old like S7 and Pixel and iPhone 7 and sorts.
Tann Hauser, 13 May 2017Here, I made a quick lowlight compare XZ Prem vs S8+:
IMO XZ Pre... moreXzp is better in those pics??.. Really? Those photos highlight my comments about low light performance. (the low light gsmarena studio is 28lux which is a lot brighter and the Sony is still poor)
The S8 has massively better dynamic range, better colour and has more detail.

No idea why, they just do.....
Samsung, htc, apple etc all use sony sensors to top dxomark but for reason sony's post processing is not upto the mark....
Forget imx 378, they could have used imx 333 or imx 362 both of them have 2017 standard hardware....
As expected poor loudness. Why would one buy mobile and suffer to hear the other part or when turn on speaker and can't hear anything in a noise environment.
It is time Sony to go to another brand
AnonD-373654, 13 May 2017At the normal distance that we use our phone, 4K resolution on the Xperia XZ Premium seems lik... moreZ5P was until now only 4K phone, and this one should be better. I remember people to say QHD as useless in phones. It's not about whether you can see, difference is there, be it just "feeling" when watch from 30cm, or eye popping difference of 4mp and 8mp when you look from 10cm. Point is you get to enjoy that when it matters, while otherwise its running on your favorite fhd. If you care so much about low light photography, try other brands, but be aware that no one got more realistic color reproduction, also even if low light auto is bad in resolution, its great in colors and processing is better than ever. Its true that this short super-slo-mo is too short, but its not useless as its not some low res sd but hd clip. Also every phone got slo-mo so nobody using it and it being useless is not true. Finally top and bottom bezels are only disadvantage, if you compare it to durability of edges or corners of S8, therefore XZP is more life-proof, so you wont get an heart attack after it falls. I surely wouldn't want a phone that breaks after one fall or to wear it in a case after paying extra for edges.
