Kyle, 13 May 2017s7 edge or XZ? i can't choose both phone has advantage for themselvesI chose the XZ over S7 edge and no regrets at all, great camera, good battery life, 64 GB of internal storage, not fragile unlike the S7 edge so no worries even if it slips out of your hand or pocket. S7 edge may be a good phone, I can't comment on that as I don't like bashing other brands they all must be great so you get options according to your preference but for me the XZ is really a great phone and it meets all the expectations you require in a smartphone, rest is up to your choice :-)
Kyle, 13 May 2017My heart goes for the XZ because of the simplicity of the phone, many reviewers bash this phon... moreNot only the xz, all sony smartphones, like if Samsung putting their most force over the Sony the Japanese company ignoring the fact that Apple is the second biggest smartphone manufacturer.
Btwn if you can find Xperia xzs for reasonable price because it has much better lowlight photography, it has high mega pixels and large pixel size in the same time.
AnonD-665390, 11 May 2017Is there a screen record option in xz? No. You will need to find and install a 3rd-party app for that in the Play Store. My S7 has built-in screen recording. It's just one of the many features the S7 has built-in that XZ doesn't have and that you will have to install 3rd-party apps to do the same function on the XZ. This is why at 500-600 dollars I strongly recommend buying the S7 instead of the XZ.
AnonD-481725, 13 May 2017I think the battery of the s7edge is slightly better but everything else is better in the xz, ... moreStop misleading people. The S7 is better than XZ in every way. The S7 display is best display according to Displaymate. The XZ display is oversaturated for an LCD screen. It's not natural at all. The S7 camera is among the 3 best smartphone cameras of 2016. The XZ isn't even top 10. The S7 also has a more beautiful and elegant design. The XZ is like a brick.

Kyle, 13 May 2017s7 edge or XZ? i can't choose both phone has advantage for themselvesI think the battery of the s7edge is slightly better but everything else is better in the xz, the screen of the xz is very natural and very pleased to the eyes, while the display of the s7edge is kindly over saturated uncomfortable to the eyes sometimes, especially if you use your smartphone for a long time, the camera, the main sony domain where Sony outperforms the competitors, you won't find a smartphone camera takes a super natural pictures like sony, the colors and the exposure balance is way better in the xz, cons artifacts are visible when zooming the picture, the s7edge has the upper hand when is comes to low light photography since the SONY camera sensor of the Galaxy s7edge has a larger pixel size. The image stabilization, no need to talk, xz far ahead.
The sony Xperia xz has a front facing stereo speakers while the s7 has one mono speaker in the bottom, probably the s7 is louder.
The design is a taste but in general i don't recommend the edge display design, it is very beautiful but uncomfortable to use especially in one hand.
Finally dipped into the unknown and got myself an Xperia XZ. It has been a full 24 hours and I already noticed issues & bugs:
1. When on Airplane Mode turning it off turns on the bluetooth for some reason.
2. I'm on a "dark" theme but there was a time the screen turn a bit lighter as if a haze came and stayed. it disappeared when i reboot the phone.
3. I was afraid the NFC sticker tag might come off as it was always in my pocket.
4. Screen on time so far was under 5 hours. That's on my average daily use from 100% at 6am and 0% by 9pm.
5. Still stuck with Android 7.0 with April security patch; no sign of 7.1.1 yet.
AnonD-665390, 11 May 2017Is there a screen record option in xz? Not preinstalled from sony like earlier. You have to install a third party app.
Or you can try this (it should be original APK from Sony):
redneck82, 10 May 2017hi actually have an Sony xperia z5 dual , have the chance to change for an Xperia xz dual too,... morexperia xz is better than the z5 esp camera, but the dual sim cannot be used with memory card, once u put a memory card it becomes a single sim
hi actually have an Sony xperia z5 dual , have the chance to change for an Xperia xz dual too, but someone who have it can tell me if better than z5 and if can i use two sim card and sd card at same time thanks
AnonD-27765, 09 May 2017I had first hand experience with the XZ. Look at my profile here. I favorited even 2 Sony Xper... moreYou are trying to prove everything reversed and to give all advantages to the s7 and the disadvantages to the xz because you own the s7, don't bother yourself, the Sony Xperia xz outperforms the s7 in cases, probably the battery is slightly better but everything else i give it to the xz.
AnonD-27765, 09 May 2017The endurance rating is what GSMArena got from real life battery usage of both devices. The S7... moreLoool, 8 hours more than the xz?? The s7 itself cannot do more than 7 hours maximum with average usage XD, too much pretends.
Gino76, 03 May 2017I think it is all about iOS vs Android. At the end of the day which OS better suits you. Each ... morei agree with that
i recived 7.1.1. few days ago and phone work better then before, opens app faster, and fingerprint reader is faster as well
mate xz its not badly optimised
Gino76, 03 May 2017I have the Z5 and it heats when downloading/updating multiple apps and doing multitasking with... morewell i didnt know for that, well my frend have z5p and he didnt have problems with overheating, i guess software if quite different or something like that, and maybe cooling i a bit better on z5p becouse it bigger phone, maybe heat sink are bigger, and depends on user as well
i dont know for speakers
chap1, 05 May 2017you wont find any android phone that have great performance like iphone,but the closest to iph... moresome app open faster on iphone some on sony flagships,iphone its not faster in fact, i dont realy wont to explain again about performance etc.... in the end all android flagships are fast, and even mid rangers etc.. it depends on 100 tings, even depends on software version and android version
