mischa, 27 Oct 2017Being about just as fast as a higher-specced device is not enough reason to stan for. The Note... more"more cool and useful features" can you tell at least 3 extra cool and usefull features on note 8 compared to sony xz1?
no name, 27 Oct 2017Agree that Sony is great!,But being great dosent mean best!Samsung is the best!.though Sony is... moreSamsung is not the best I used almost all brand and Samsung is not better than Sony in anyway except th bezelless design .
leo R, 27 Oct 2017Xzs and Xz1 are almost the same(except SoC). When I talk about xzs it also implies on xz1. Son... more I am an xz1 user and I didn't see any difference in xz1 and my friend s8. So I don't believe you even though I didn't own the xzs since you say they are the same because xz1 is ok in low light not bad.
[deleted post]I will never understand how can people fall so low just because they hate a brand. Xz1 is good I am having it and I choose it over remote s8 and I think I made a best decision.it fast,classy, sturdy, battery life is ok what else do you want. Bezelless is not so important to me I want a mobile which last longer, stand against fall etc and Sony fits my need better.

So, Im entirely glad we dont unders... moreWell, if u don't know, I have seen him here for quite some time now, and he is clearly a SAMSUNG fanboy. He is a immature fanboy that keeps repeating saying SAMSUNG is better in all aspects, this is better than Sony that is better than Sony. Yes, indeed, SAMSUNG is clearly better than Sony, everyone knows it, since it is the best in the world, but can't he just accept the fact that other people like other smartphones that are not SAMSUNG? Really even for fanboys like me who buy Sony smartphones don't go to the SAMSUNG smartphone "territory" and bash on those people who like SAMSUNG. I will just be fine and just read the comments there and agree to them, I don't bash on them like "SONY IS BETTER THAN SAMSUNG IN EVERY ASPECT" Everyone have their own brand they like, and no one can stop them, just like mischa, mischa is a fan of SAMSUNG. But if someone like mischa keeps repeating SAMSUNG is better than Sony in every aspect, storage type, camera, performance, future-proofing, then I will say that that person aka mischa is really immature, he just can't accept the fact that other people like a smartphone brand that is not SAMSUNG
leo R, 27 Oct 2017I can't find xperia keyboard in playstore. May be it don't support nougat.Go to APKMIRROR and type "Xperia Keyboard"
Why is that this review doesn't mention anything about sound quality when doing calls ? mic quality ?
is this a phone or not ?
mischa, 27 Oct 2017Being about just as fast as a higher-specced device is not enough reason to stan for. The Note... moreYes, larger native 570ppi on Note8 of course will blown away XZP 1080p (4K only show up on supported app/movie), but Note8 price also almost twice from XZP ( at least in my country Indonesia, Note8 12,8M IDR vs XZP 7,4M IDR ).
i had watch youtube before about 3D test on Note8 vs XZP. XZP with adreno540 blown away Note8.
i don't like those 18:9 ratio on note8 & edge,
but i too don't like those same old design on XZP/XZ1 ( i used to had Z3C,Z5 ) but better feeling when hold Z5 compare to my wife S7.
camera ? Sony software is still not good, lowlight is a no go. samsung is the winner, but sometime unnatural colors (over vivids ?).
if u ask me what to choose, then i choose XZ1/XZP just because it's a lot cheaper ^_^. i can live with those old design dan screen.

The Note 8 has way better screen, better design, more modern, elegant and polished UI, more cool and useful features which are all big reasons to stan for it.
[deleted post]im no fanboy, im just a user, and one who tries all flagships of all brands..
and I write long replies to clarify everything, and explaining what I say for the other brands' fanboys to understand, and I doubt they will..
[deleted post]no they're not.
and even if they sometimes are, it's worth the wait, and as for their haters, they can burn or explode like a Note 7's battery.
no name, 27 Oct 2017Agree that Sony is great!,But being great dosent mean best!Samsung is the best!.though Sony is... more1. Value: market or online store seller dependent, but comparing the biggest two: Sony XZ Premium and Samsung Note8, the XZ Premium is cheaper.
2. Performance: no doubt Sony is more stable, faster, smoother with a light UI or you can say skinned stock android, not a heavily customized UI.
For the Basemark OS II score that measures the overall performance, Sony's XZ Premium is the first to cross 4000 points with 4127, while Samung S8+ is the highest in Samsung with 3401 only, these numbers may vary within a certain range so you can test your phone by downloading the app from Google Play Store.
3. Specs: the main specs are kinda common, except for the Exynos versions of Samsung's trio which have a better GPU, and as for the cameras each has its own strength points, and the Note8 can be a winner here.
Samsung's note8 has 6 GB of RAM which may help more in multi-tasking, but actually Sony did not need more than 4 GB for a beastly performance.
4. For the design, unusual aspect ratios of displays are not very useful except when you're reading a long document or text file, but when viewing photos and videos, mostly they are in 4:3 or 16:9 ratio. Sony's build is much stronger and more durable, and I did try it.
If a bezelless screen phone falls down, the screen is more subjected to breaking, unless you put a screen protector and a shock resistant cover, but a normally designed phone can withstand the shocks more and the screen has more chances to be safe.
With respect to all flagships, as I tried most of them, Sony's trio tops the list in terms of value, performance (check the XZ1 Compact's review for the last comment in the performance page, stating that it's the fastest and smoothest phone that the GSM Arena team tested), practical design, and best use of the available specs to output the best performance.
Tann Hauser, 27 Oct 2017Well, that stunt fortunately didnt help them, as S8 duo is selling half less than S7 duo. Sony... moreyou're absolutely right man, japanese don't have time to waste with crap :D
You guys have been saying that for what? 5 years now...
You obviously love your fairytales.
