LG has abandoned its replaceable battery and they use old techs on its new flagship. There's no more reason for me to stay with them again.
Just a little community question: what is your opinion about the rounded screen corners?

I actually meant iMX260! That's the ExmorRS image sensor of the Galaxy S7.
I wonder, why the Xperia XZp is still stuck at 120fps without time limitation.
But I made another bad experience: that GalaxyS7 slow motion lag bug. I tried to film in slow motion for twenty minutes, which produced 1200*9=9600 MB of data, because Android does not use FAT³² anymore with 4 GB of maximum filesize. 4294967295b=2³²-1.
In the first three minutes, the skipped frames were not common. I don't know yet, whether it is dependent on heat, but after these three minutes, the frequency of skipped frames notably increases. After six minutes, this happens pemanently. In the remaining 14 minutes, the frameskip does not get much worse. But after six minutes, it is so severe, that your audience can get dizzy, and even 60fps are smoother than permanently laggy 240fps.
Ah yes, unlike Apple, Samsung's camera application since S6 (TouchWiz NatureUX 5) is severely vulnerable to screen rotation. Since S5 (2014, NatureUX 3), partially. But that is a different story. And you can't yet zoom into video thumbnails.
Additionally, power saving is disabled, while the battery is charging. That's OK at a wall charger, but what if I use a portable power supply such as a powerbank, where power saving is still relevant?
We don't want an 18.5/9 bezelless display with rounded corners and mono speaker under the phone, which is crappy for photo and video watching... We want an bezelless 16/9 display with front stereo speakers, that's simply perfect!
Sic, 30 Mar 2017if you samsung fanboys are ok with what you get why are you comparing Samsung with Sony. its b... moreReally?? I thought it's the opposite Sony boys don't have news or anything relevant so they compare the great Samsung to already dieing Sony smartphones.. The only sony phone that was competing was the Xperia z3 since than Sony is nowhere near Samsung
Samsung is the best smartphone. Guys pls u have to wait and get one before u can make any observations about this phone.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Wtf?! Still the same camera as S7?! No 1000fps video recording?! Tf?! Sony Xperia XZ Premium c... moreExcept, that's not going to happen, compared to Samsung, LG and Apple, Sony's phone share here in the US, and other countries has been pretty low. I'm not knocking them, they make some great stuff, but the chances of Sony overtaking Samsung in the phone department are slim and none.

Hopefully, the stuttering is gone at least.
The Galaxy S8 has four times as much computing performance as the Galaxy Note 3, which already had 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@120fps (no real slow motion encoding, but proves sufficient processing power) and locked screen rotation, and no frame skipping, did already perform great. But two years ago, I noticed, how the 60fps mode on the Note 4 was messed up with Lollipop. I can tell more about that later, but that 60fps mode now shoots at 30fps. Huge disappointment.
The CPU performance of the S7 was sufficient for 2160p@60fps already. The image sensor reading speed is sufficient. iMX240. And 1080p should be possible at 120fps too. Because 2160p@30fps means 248832000 Pixels per second, which the Galaxy Note 3 hardware could deliver, I wonder, why this number has never been beaten by Samsung after that.
PS: I wish, that GSMArena would allow comment hotlinking. | At least, 64 GB of internal storage is now globally available. But the Camera apparently is better on the S7: same hardware, better user interface, presuming that you have still not upgraded to Marshmallow.

But guess what nobody really buys Sony phones so in the long-run it won't matter.
if you samsung fanboys are ok with what you get why are you comparing Samsung with Sony. its because you know Sony could beat Samsung in a way but sony is not after beating anyone its after giving customers what is worth their money
guys you should check the camera quality of xperia xzs i was speechless Shamsung is just crap quality talks
I would go with the G6 same features + wide camera and less expansive !!!
Harold, 30 Mar 2017Sony is the only company that innovates, lol 960fps Samsung tried to include 1000fps but didn'... moreOkay.. but Sony just can't produce good pictures with their own sensors. They didn't really improve their camera work since the Z3, which always kept me from buying an Xperia. It's just not particularly good in good light.. not to speak of their low light performance.
Dj, 30 Mar 2017Great but.... no IR!? I'll keep my Note 3 IR is long dead
Dj, 30 Mar 2017Great but.... no IR!? I'll keep my Note 3 If you need IR you can buy Huawei P10 Plus ;)
Mr. TC, 30 Mar 2017it dosen't suporte radio. that is a owfull thing The S3 was the last S series phone to have radio. You can go for the A or C series, or go and buy the G6 that has radio.
Harold, 30 Mar 2017Sony is the only company that innovates, lol 960fps Samsung tried to include 1000fps but didn'... more4K display? Who needs that actually? QHD is enough even for VR.
What Samsung should do is to add larger batteries. Seriously 3000 mAh for a 5.8 inch QHD is stupid, even if it has Super Amoled.
Sony is advancing back as well. The XZ Premium has a smaller battery than the Z5 Premium. :))
