You can flash an European software to get the sensor working.

PLUS: the dual SIM version is called hybrid SIM, you can only use one of the floowing: Secondary SIM and Memory card.
Dual SIM version is also not an option for US version(F8331)
Battery endurance will be even worse when the Nougat update comes along for the XZ.
[deleted post]Actually, I too am getting a new phone. Currently a HTC One m7 user. It has served me well and is starting to show its age now. So wanted to try something new.
Samsung S7 edge and this Xperia XZ were the options I was considering.
Rather than reviews I have found forum like these actually are much better to judge a phone. So, coming to the point - the Samsung S7 forum is filled with issues - So its disheartening to actually buy something which people are already facing, specially for the price these devices command. I have found the Xperia forum to be quite good with very few issues reported. Just my two cents.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2016Better choices? Lol. Your favorite Samsung will lag and overheat after few months dude. Like m... moreBeside Overheating...
S7 edge can explode even no charging...
Worldwide..S7 explosion occur.England Ohio even in airplane horror note2 and so on
Obviously samsung has NO quality BUT good marketing
Moreover..there are 31 sperate kinds of S7 and S7 edge with different suppliers of different quality component.......
This is nightmare for samsung customers...for example S7 and s7 edgefail to manage oculus new VR apps despite s7 edge and s7 have 4g Ram and make BIG advertise in VR section
Forget about the XZ, even the X with a mediocre chipset of snapdragon 650 beats the crap out of iPhone 7, S7 and other flagships out there. Overall Sony phones are far more reliable than any other brands, tried and tested, Z, Z2, Z3, Z5 and now the X.
[deleted post]Yes it is good when you go for war..hahahahaha Samsung phones are fail!
Snapdragon 820 is old and outdated from Snapdragon 821 you think you're going to fool us by using this bait to attract us lol no way try harder Sony
[deleted post]Better choices? Lol. Your favorite Samsung will lag and overheat after few months dude. Like my uncle's S7 Edge. But my Sony Xperia Z3 which is two years old never lag because of well optimized software unlike TouchWiz.
Shehan sd, 03 Oct 2016Xperia xz or s7 edge ??
Keep in mind s7 has heatgate and bombgate issue with low quality fragile glass phone with 12mp low grade camera.....
XZ is KING of phone with super built quality and great camera and stunning performance and long supporting..and reliable battery care and tech Like Qnovo and amazing stereo sound and whopping web browsing experiences
[deleted post]Actually all reviews are in favor if edge including gsm arena camera review so maybe ur paid not me and if ur too stupid to understand my words I meant the second worst flagship not in the table smart paid guy
Bring back Dual sim and SD card slot, and FM radio and IR blaster! They really mean to some!
Eph3drin3, 03 Oct 20161080 x 1920 pixels wtf ? for 700e euro ? are they crazy ?only for a camera subpar to s7 and lg... more- you can not find a difference between FHD and QHD in a 5.2 inch screen size. It's a gimmick.
- subpar camera? Samsung's cameras are always overrated, they pay reviewers for that. In reality, S7 doesn't have such a great camera. See how it compares to the Xperia X. XZ further improves things ;)
S7 left, X right.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2016Yes, which is why iPhone 7 is a waste. I'd rather go with the S7 than an iPhone 7.S7 is overheating bro
1080 x 1920 pixels wtf ? for 700e euro ? are they crazy ?only for a camera subpar to s7 and lg they are going down by next year no more sony phones
The main problem about thia phone is its pruce , i'm using xperia c4 dual which cost me 485 dollars which is unacceptable , the battett of my phone is good , 5 hrs of screen ontime on 0% brightnees , so the battery with be good for xz as my phone has a 2600mAh battery
Second worst battery and endurance after the g5 , at least the g5 has a much better camera lol, they ain't coming back with this one, maybe the zx next year or the az idk who the genius behind naming is but I am pretty sure it will also be the best camera phone in the world , if u know nothing about cameras hahah
