AnonD-257122, 05 May 2017Can't say about the S7 battery as I haven't used it but battery life on the XZ is great.I would agree with that, I own 8331 model for two months now ( it is not not dual sim) and battery life is really good. I am very happy with it. At end of normal quite bussy day I still have about 35% left. WiFi and BT always ON.

AnonD-481725, 05 May 2017Perhaps the battery life of the s7 is slightly better, but everything else i give to the xz. Can't say about the S7 battery as I haven't used it but battery life on the XZ is great.

About the throttling in z3+ and z5 series, the sd810 is design by qualcom so qualcom create the driver, sony can push any update but what it can do is nothing, cause its hardware problem, fixing the driver isn't much help either since qualcom itself had to make a refresh of sd810 name sd810AB to compensate the throttling problem, and the refreshed h sd810AB is not any better than sd810, sony did try to fix this by installing dual liquid filled heatpipe, a more aggressive solution than lumia950 liquid cooling(actually a single heatpipe with liquid in it, sony got two)

I don't play much graphically intensive games on my phone but the type of storage would help in terms of loading an app or video for that matter.
So, even if it's Sony's fault why can't they just put their hands up, admit it's their fault and issue an update to fix the throttling?
What's the difference between the Z5 and XZ? Z5 picture quality isn't that good so I think I'll pass on XZ was already disappointed by the Z5

A couple of years ago I checked the camera of my cousin's Xperia z2, at that time I was shocked of the bad quality of the pictures, But again this happened to me recently with Xperia XZ, amateur quality of pictures, the XZ's camera is not very different of the Z2's.
ACTUALLY I AM AGAIN DISAPPOINTED IN SONY, BAD CAMERA, BAD SOUND, BAD BATTERY LIFE ESPECIALLY AFTER THE 7.1.1 UPDATE, BAD CONTEXT MENUS, CHILDISH VIDEO AND AUDIO HANDLING, I couldn't find, eg, a catchy notification sound for WHATSAPP. Nearly all the sounds are fluttery and bloated, yet not catchy.
I had an LG flex 2, its dispkay is ways better than the XZ's.
LG is better than Sony especially cameras and display.
And what adds salt to injury is the stupid preinstalled apps like AVG and Swiftkey, and they cannot be uninstalled.
As I regret my choice of the XZ, I would try the XZs for free as a compensation.
nawab, 02 May 2017S7 or xz confuse which to buy The S7 of course. I was in the exact same dillemma as you a couple of months ago. I was choosing between the S7 and XZ but the XZ was pricier at the time so I went with the S7 instead and I realized it's so much worth it. S7 is better than the XZ in just about every aspect, from the screen, camera, processor, RAM to the design, compactness, battery life and software features. You're getting more value for money in the S7. S7 is an advanced smartphone that even after 1 year it still matches and even beats current flagships like XZs, P10 and G6. The only thing better than the S7 is the S8 and the S8 is only a minor upgrade from the S7.

About speaker its tiny bit slower than z5

I don't even do 4K video recirding and I have set the camera MP down to a minimum of 8MP (16:9) or 20MP (16:9).
But I have sold the Z5 and will be posting it in the next 24 hours. My next target is the XZ. My only concern on the XZ is apparently the speakers sounds a bit weaker than the Z5. True?

If the XZ has better optimisations and better battery life than say iPhone 6S (or 6S Plus) as it stands with their new software (Nougat 7.1.1 now on XZ & iOS 10.3 on the iPhones) then this is the path i'll go. Comment?
L0lip0p, 02 May 2017Nope ios eat same amount of ram with android
The advantage of ios here is they had some soft... moreI can agree. There was a short docu from Android Authority explaining that iOS may use the same (sometimes) smaller memory to run/load apps than Android but again Apple has a workaround (a secret software algorythm) that creats a cached version of the app and loads it instantly.
I wish Android was like that as well.
