This new design feels right in the hand not to mention comfortable but yes, the weight of this phone could have been better.
Geric.770, 28 Aug 2018This is the only review that has no stars rated to it. Why? Because using stars is the dumbest rating system in existence, same goes for rating something out of 5 or out 10 or using bronze, silver or gold ratings, especially when reviewing some form of technology. It does not help to indicate improvements over time as technology advances.

YouTube app added 4k support (even 4k hdr) shortly after the launch of XZ Premium (2017).
In future don't spread fake news!
The first time I've seen this phone, I thought it looked strange from the back, not ugly but not beautiful either, but in reality it's really elegant, Sony knows how to design phones (even though it doesn't follow the trends and that's not an issue for me).
The weight and thickness could have been better though, that's mainly due to the fact that's this is the first version of this design.
The camera however is among the best for sure, video recording is the strongest feature of this camera (and the best in the smartphone industry) but stills are also great.
Don't trust this comments people. This comments are lies. Just try it yourself and decide to buy or not.
4K with crap brightness nothing special since no app supports 4K not even YouTube.

I know Sony phones have great battery life, but I'd honestly agree with gsma on this one....

There. 81 hr battery enduran... moreSadly, Kamabdi is right...
And that is the XZ Premium with 72hrs endurance vs IP8p 81hrs
[deleted post]Now that you mentioned XZ2, its samples actually look better than XZ2P in good light, which is puzzling. Check them for yourself.
I admit Sony made an improvement in XZ2, but they somehow regressed in XZ2P.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018Did you check the photo comparison tool provided in the review? The haloes are present in the ... moreOhh now I saw it perfectly, that's not halos, it's details even the p20 pro showed.
Samsung makes the objects white idk is it the exposure or the contrast is high ?? but the Sony shows a more detailed picture with a little noise being there.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018The noise comes from oversharpening. ISO50 does not generate this much noise.No the noise comes from being Sony having them a long time and that's there issue
No the high ISO
