The front is perfect but the back cover look cheap to me. I prefer boxy old XZ1 back cover.
By nature, OLED will have burnt in. If you use the map a lot or gaming you will see it normally by 6 months time

this looks completely like Note FE in the front. Sony is lagging behind samsung about 2 years.
Walter C. Dornez, 31 Aug 2018It's more like others didn't compare....until now that is Yes
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2018Display Mate only tests Apple and Samsung... Morw bias than new protocol of DxOIf you can't see that the Samsung screen have the best screens then you're blind. And everybody in the industry agrees. Displaymate test only the best like the Pixel, iphone, and Samsung. They gonna test the new Sony because it's a good screen. In the past they did some test on HTC, Huawei and Sony.
kakouille, 31 Aug 2018Samsung screens are the best.They are, but the Pentile arrangement can now be replaced as Sony has proven. I still will take a Samsung panel anyday though over LCD

Shanti Dope, 31 Aug 2018Exactly why Sony didn't use a Samsung or LG OLED panel for smartphones; they're mediocre at be... moreUh, Samsung does the same with its curved edges, just nobody users them mostly because they don't know about it
Tann Hauser, 30 Aug 2018Im sorry, it looks completely Galaxy on front now. And completely many chinese/htc/LG on back ... moreActually, that graphic inconsistentcy could be fixed by downscaling, not to mention Android Pie isn't exactly doing better than Oreo at being stable. The squeeze feature is one that is for convenience and it's so useful on the U12. OLED with Sony display magic is what many were waiting for, and the long aspect ratio is just becoming the standard, and is useful. But I know these changes aren't for everybody. It's your call. You can try it out and decide for yourself, or you can switch

It's as if there's never something great on Xperia phones.
Take for example, iPhones have more flaws than Xperias, but they barely receive negative feedbacks due to their popularity.
Some of the complaints on Xperias are almost just pure nitpicking, trying to find flaws on an otherwise near perfect device. Nobody rages about the same 2 year old 12MP 1/2.55" camera of the S9, but the recently changed Loop Surface was criticized already in less than a year.
Fair play I would say.
Mike, 30 Aug 20183.5mm is not coming back people. Sony is in the business of selling high end wireless headphon... moreWho knows, maybe the negative feedback will change their mind.
Last year when the XZ Premium came out, most of the negatives are pointing out to the large bezels. Sony didn't do bezel less design until this year, so it takes them a year to do the change.
They didn't include a 3.5mm jack this year, but maybe next year they will
Tann Hauser, 30 Aug 2018Well, thats about for me....
Farewell Sony, itd been a pleasant ride but now, nothing differe... moreAt this point, it's already quite difficult to come up with something that can differentiate from the crowd.
Why I'd stay with Sony is because of their excellent software and support, imaging capabilities, and their legacy of high quality long-lasting products.
kakouille, 31 Aug 2018Samsung screens are the best.It was, until this Panasonic Polymer OLED screen of the XZ3 came
The notch like shape behind the usb type c as if its saying.. "kiss my ass notch" haha
3D Memories, 31 Aug 2018He's lying. The S9 and Note 9 both have 10 Bit HDR AMOLED screens
and there is a reason why p... moreExactly why Sony didn't use a Samsung or LG OLED panel for smartphones; they're mediocre at best.
The RGB Polymer OLED of this XZ3 lasts very long despite the RGB matrix, and as clearly seen in the pictures, there is very little to no color shift of the screen even at the most extreme of angles.
They did took time to get an OLED screen, but the end result was well worth it for such a quality display.
And who made a much better curved display again?? Oh yeah, Sony uses the edges for useful shortcuts and functions other than just the generic edge swiping.
SONY can make a great phone but never a stand out success. They always pair a large screen with a poor processor and camera or a small screen with a good camera and CPU. It's the opposite of everyone else.
franz.alex, 30 Aug 2018I find it annoying that folks who comment on this site are always complaining about one thing ... moreI never understood the complaints of overpricing, either. It's entirely false. Current flagship lineup pricing:
XZ2 Compact: $499
XZ2 Premium: $769
Compared to the likes of Samsung, Apple, LG and HTC, they're priced cheaper. Sony's real pricing competition is OnePlus, Xiaomi, Hauwei, etc.
