So forget 4K, does it overheat when taking a couple of pictures? And what about gaming performance?
Not to mention the myriad of functions and modes in the camera app. The S7 is simply much much better than the XZ.

Unless that smartphone is as high tech as gaming desktops where there is heavy liquid cooling done on it with some ARCTIC MX-4 thermal compound on the core which makes it cooler than before, or some kind of tech enthusiasts who uses nitrogen to cool the CPU core to the coolest temperature that a normal cpu core cannot even reach, am I right? Even if there is better tech like SAMSUNG'S new cooling system inside of the GALAXY S8, it will still overheat. My friend's GALAXY S7 EDGE sometimes overheat when playing games, mine overheat lesser not even joking. When playing on direct sunlight is where GALAXY S7 EDGE becomes worse, the sides of the smartphone are the hottest place to touch compared to my XPERIA XZ just slightly warm. Secondly, both XPERIA XZ & GALAXY S7 take good photos and video quality, XPERIA XZ looks better in daylight, but when comes to low-light it struggles and GALAXY S7 is definitely better, but using Manual Mode will made the XPERIA XZ look good too. So, for me, I choose XPERIA XZ. Mainly because of the performance is slightly faster (SNAPDRAGON 820 VS EXYNOS 8890) and also not that hot to hold the smartphone after playing games or other things. And because the camera is decent enough for daylight shots and low-light shots. Manual Mode used in low-light eliminates the problems u found on the XPERIA XZ like noise levels, overexposure etc. But for him if he is the kind of person who uses the camera without tweaking anything and using Auto Mode then he should get GALAXY S7. But to be honest Sony's Manual Mode is also easy to use

If you want a smartphone that doesn't overheat and also has great image and video quality, get the S7.
Hi guys, I just want to ask you does the phone overheat when using the camera (not necessarily 4k just by taking pictures)? And does it overheat or drain battery when using some apps like Facebook and lite games?
Any help is appreciated.

S7 is so far ahead of the XZ in literally every aspect and it was released 8 months ahead. It was also cheaper. You'd never be needing to upgrade to a new smartphone in the next 2 years if you had the S7.

I did a software fix from the xperia companion on my laptop. the performance is good again, but the multitasking, the battery and the camera are still the same, mediocre for a flagship. I can't afford to buy the XZp unfortunately as I am jobless at the moment. Therefore I will wait for the new xperias or the new Nokia.
