You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Barrel distortion is caused by wide angle lenses. The XZP suffers from wavey lines throughout the image. No other smartphone camera has this issue. The fact you can't detect them does not mean the issue isn't real.

Neither does my one friend with S7edge, nor other one that got S8. Htc U11 also has distortions, so does LG G6, G5. All wide FOV cameras have them.
Guess you should get a 2011 flag phone if you are bothered with distortions.

Maybe you have weak eyes. So, according to your logic, then Sony is twice as stupid as Samsung for making such a big gap between 1080p and 4k. Plus, Sony doesn't even make a mobile vr headset ! Maybe Sony owners could modify a Samsung mobile vr headet since Sony doesn't have a mobile vr headset for its gimmick 4k screen.

According Dr. Optoglass if a healthy adult brings any display screen or printed paper or whatever 4 inches (100 mm) from his or her face, the maximum resolution he/she can see at is 2190 ppi/dpi.
But the legally accepted norm of 20/20 vision only asks for 876 ppi/dpi at 4 inches!
that's why many people get screen door effect from VR headset with lower resolution.
If the average reading/viewing distance is 1 foot (12 inches = 305 mm), p @0.4 arc minute is 35.5 microns or about 720 ppi/dpi. p @1 arc minute is 89 microns or about 300 dpi/ppi. This is why magazines are printed at 300 dpi Â– itÂ’s good enough for most people. Fine art printers aim for 720, and thatÂ’s the best it need be. Very few people stick their heads closer than 1 foot away from a painting or photograph.
So actually the 5.5 inch UHD display on XZ Premium has the perfect size and resolution especialy if you using it with google card board or something like that and when Sony finally using Full RGB OLED/Cledis (Crystal LED) it will be perfect device for Google Day Dream VR.
I've been impressed with the battery life. Problem nowadays is that people are obsessed with the numbers. They want MOAR mAh, but they underestimate the power of software optimisation that's conducive to a good battery. I've easily got two days out of this phone with some light web browsing, watching a few videos, etc. I would imagine it stands up to intensive use.

The 4k display of the xzp is proven by many people it doesn't drain the battery even if it is adjusted to work 4k on time proven on YouTube.

The human eye cannot see the difference between 2k and 4k on a small 5.2 inch mobile phone screen. You need at least a 50 inch TV for that. Don't believe me, then google it. And running in a 4k screen is extremely battery hungry. And yes, if Samsung does it, then it would be a gimmick also, but Samsung doesn't have a 4k display. I never said that the phone was bad. If your happy, that's all that matters.

Only Sony is using this sales gimmick. Google it as there is plenty of info about this online.
Wow, U HD screen resolution in Andriod phone. Samsung wanted to do it but could not but Sony is doing it already. Guys how does this affect the battery life. 807 PPI too much. Also how clear is the screen, is it better than S7 edge and S8?

There are 15 or so fellas reporting more than usual distortion there.
One of them even reported he had xchanged the device for another unit and everything is peechy for him now.
Some very few lenses out of millions obviously had a production defect.
So no, and stop overreacting over a few issue reports.
