Great phone let down by mediocre camera and weak front facing speakers, else it would have the best from Sony.

The XZ's size is more comparable to the S7 edge.
Even your Xperia X with only 5.0" display is almost as big as the 5.5-incher S7 edge. Just look at those huge bezels.

Phenom, 15 May 2017Xperia XZ or Iphone 6s?Xz definitely, don't even compare.
mischa, 15 May 2017XZ is good as a backup phone but as a daily driver, no.Xz backup phone, then your s7 is a budget XD
Ali Bashir, 15 May 2017No iPhone user switched from iphones to galaxy ever, most people are running away from Samsung... moreCheck the S8 subreddit. You'll be surprised of the amount of long time iPhone users that switched to S8 and are so happy with the experience. Samsung phones have no issues. Those issues you mention if ever they exist affect only 1 percent of all retail units.
Ali Bashir, 14 May 2017The Galaxy s7 and the Xperia xz both have 70% screen to body ratio which means same bezel size... moreThis is something that a person who've never seen let alone used both the S7 and XZ would say. The S7 and XZ have practically the same display size. 0.1" hardly make any noticeable difference. But if you compare these two phones side-by-side, one is SIGNIFICANTLY larger than the other. The XZ is closer to the S7 edge in dimensions than to the S7. The XZ is a much larger phone than the S7 despite having similar screen size which is even worsened by its sharp edges. The S7 looks smaller and feels much more comfortable in the hand because of the rounded corners, thin side bezels and chamfered back edges. The S7 is designed better for one-handed use. The XZ body could easily fit a 5.5" screen. Go use and compare both of them side-by-side in a store.
And also, everything looks larger on the S7 5.1" display than on the XZ 5.2" display because the S7 displays every content full screen. The XZ has annoying on-screen nav keys that take space at the bottom of the display.

And more sales doesn't mean better, for example Toyota are the most selling cars but they are no near from Mercedes or Jaguars.
Samsung is just about marketing.

The S8 has sold 3 million units already in just less than a month. Long time iPhone users have switched to the S8 and are attesting it's the best smartphone they've ever used. It takes Samsung to release a S8 for them to switch to Android. Now what do you think that says about CURRENT Samsung Galaxy software and performance? You're still clinging to your old 2014 Touchwiz myths.
I am experiencing some issues & bugs on my XZ mainly:
1. Bluetooth turns on after turning off Airplane Mode
2. Screen turns hazy or whitish (when on a dark theme) all of a sudden
3. Some notifications are still getting through (popping out from the top screen) even when i turned them off under Settings
4. NFC tag seem very fragile and I fear it might come off anytime especially when you put it in your pocket everyday.
5. Screen on time seems just over 5 hours; Bought the thing 48 hours ago. is that a good number?
Any comments & advice please. Cheers.

One more reason to choose the S7 over the XZ is the screen real estate. The XZ has a slightly larger display than the S7 (5.2 vs. 5.1) but if you look at them side by side, the S7 makes better use of its screen real state than the XZ. Every content appears smaller on the XZ screen because of the on-screen navigation keys occupying the bottom of the screen. The S7 has capacitive back/recents buttons and a physical home key so they don't use precious screen space and everything on the S7 screen appears fullscreen. There are no wasted space both on the screen and body of the S7. No worthless big bezels and no on-screen keys. On-screen keys are only ideal for large-screened phones, not for phone screens smaller than 5.5 inches.
