after mom broke her s7 edge(fall from 4ft,non responsive screen) we visited all android stores and she picked XZ for its design and EIS. She likes to record video (not 4k). she now loves her XZ

XZ falls short on specs which hardly justify its premium price. S7 gives more value for money.

So the price drops very fast and keep in mind the s7 is older to the xz.
mischa, 22 Jan 2017I've tested Sony Xperia XZ in a cellphone shop here and OMG I was blown away. This phone looks... more?!?
Do you want a Sony phone or a Sammy phone?
That is your only question.
About tech compare, I think price wise they are equally worth it. S7 has 2k screen, 4 gigs and wireless charge, XZ has 23 and 13 mpx cameras with 2 extra sensors, extra speaker.
Only thing you should consider in my opinion is battery.
Samsung phones just dont have quality batteries, even if bigger mah is a sales point, and I definitely wouldnt recommend using wireless charge on that device, it busts the battery after short period of time. Sony has qnovo batterycare insurance.
And theres the SoC question.
Do you want a bit faster interface with lower graphics of exynos, or a bit slower interface with about 40% better graphic performance of qualcomm?
Its all up to your choice.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017I've bought my Sony Z3 with 900$. So 600$ is very good dial.High-end smartphones from major brands normally cost 600-700 dollars here. Only iPhones cost upwards of 800 dollars. XZ is virtually on the same price point as Galaxy S7 here. I don't think it's a good deal to buy XZ when a better specced, higher performing smartphone can be had for the same price.
beingandroid, 23 Jan 2017hahahahah what a joke 20 cm ???Yeah, later someone else might say that the display was broken while typing a message because his super fast finger movement..!!
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2017You'll be accused as a troll soon. Lol.Why not? with what kind of evidence or experience he say so? I have used Xperias for years and finally with XZ and always were happy with battery life and durability. If say such a thing at least with some evidence please..!
mischa, 22 Jan 2017I've tested Sony Xperia XZ in a cellphone shop here and OMG I was blown away. This phone looks... moreYou only test the screen? How do you think the performance after years? I personal had use a Samsung phone, it Touchwiz is lag after year, I haven't use up the Rom and the internal Ram, this is happen with my cousin too.
I've tested Sony Xperia XZ in a cellphone shop here and OMG I was blown away. This phone looks gorgeous. Design is not like any other Android phone I've ever seen. It's just unique, elegant and premium looking. The screen is also gorgeous. I honestly can't see any difference with the XZ's 1080 IPS LCD display and that of Samsung Galaxy S7's 2k sAMOLED display. XZ's display is bright, sharp and with vivid colors. If I didn't know that it was an IPS LCD display I would have mistaken it for an AMOLED one. I would have definitely bought this phone if only it doesn't cost 600+ dollars.
Do guys think it's still worth spending 600+ dollars on this phone in 2017? I feel like it's way too overpriced especially when Samsung Galaxy S7 with an equal premium build and design and a more advanced specs (QHD display, 4GB RAM) is also of similar price.
This Phone is awesome but the main issue here is that the battery performance getting lower or reducing

In fact your phone is Samsung s7 with less bezel and less durability
