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.

XZ Premium was the best phone ever! all they had to do was cut down on the bezels and keep the flat display and replace it with an OLED. But nope, Sony gave a ton of food for trolls with the clone of Galaxy S9.

and there is a reason why pentile screens are being used one of the advantages of PenTile displays is that they last longer than RGB, Samsung came up with Super AMOLED Plus which had RGB matrix but due to burn in issues they switched back to pentile because its the best at the moment when it comes to burn-in prevention.
I remember the same Sony guys going on and on about how OLEDs are bad you'd hear things like crapoled, burn in, inaccurate, LCD is the best. Same guys are now praising OLEDs as the best display ever.
Never trust or believe a Sony fan.

Morw bias than new protocol of DxO
Is this panel subpixcel real RGB?
If it is real RGB, the possibility of manufacturing JDI will be high. LG's V30 and Pixcel2 XL are pentiles.
JDI has exhibited real RGB POLED panel in 2016.
In addition, JDI last year integrated domestic OLED manufacturing lines into one factory.
Also last year Maxell HD co-developed with JDI to develop FFM for real RGB OLED production corresponding to 400 ppi, announced that it will be shipped from autumn of 2018.
The production line of JDI is small, and there are not enough numbers for iPhone etc, but it may be enough if it is Xperia exclusive level.
I expect that someone will check the actual thing.

Especially the XZ2 Premium...that was one big annoying complaint of a review( but this, but that, but Note9 is, but P20 Pro is, etc...)
Guess they finally succeded.
Sony gave up on originality, and is now a complete copycat company...
Complainers and trolls got an Xperia Galaxy phone finally. But Im sure they wont be buying it. Nor will I now, a longstanding Sony fan, ex now.
I find SonyMobile products like XZ3 and future ones probably, so uninspiring and not interesting anymore, not worth the extra brand money anymore....
If this is an S9 copycat then 75% of 2018 phones are iphone copycats...
For me there are some similarities but it's difficult to make a phone that's different from everything else while not costing too much and retaining good looks and usability.
Now to hope they make a 5 inch compact version of this that's not thicker and with the usual Xperia perks (same hardware, just smaller screen resolution and smaller battery).

You want to silence people just because you don't like what they say? Grow up buddy. People will always have different opinions. Learn to accept other people's opinions rather than asking for them to be silenced.

side curved oled qhd+ display(where did I last hear that, hmmm?),
rounded screen edges( this is why I give up honestly, most stupid design trend along with notches),
no headphone jack,
same cam and interiors...
...and lousy graphic performance as suspected, bcs of the new screen.
There are same phones as this all over the place.
No Sony original upgrades at all here...
Might as well go with any other phone out there now, as this one is just too expensive.
I ll chose any other cheaper flag, as long as it does not have a notch, or is a Samsung phone.
Expecting nothin anymore from Sony

I hope this guy at least do realize what aftersale support is
