The battery is too small. Sony so stupid putting 4K screen and only 3230mah battery. I will never buy! No wireless charging. No fingerprint sensor for US market too. Worst decision ever by Sony. The bezel look ugly. This phone will be obsolete by the time its released. Overpriced crap.

But yeah at least half I think would be good. Bezels in sony compact phones are pretty small and still maintain the front facing speakers.
maybe some new sony innovation for even better design is needed here. I hope they have smoething up their sleeves at IFA>
s8 screen is looking stellar though. I really wonder how the XZP is gonna compete with the s8.

Bezels should be shaved off by max half, somehow, but not on cost of camera bumps or front speakers, certainly not as much as on these lgs and galaxies.... thats too much for comfort and ease of use.

Reduce bezels while maintaing speakers is a must at this moment or it will lag behind. maybe utilize the same tenchnology used on their bravia oled or xiaomi and have their sound come through the screen

every company wants to make money,every understand that
well they made money and what can you do about it?

people have to understand why something cost a lot,and every company wants to make money,that how it is
you have a nice day too

And nothing wrong with S8 selling 10 folds more (tho I believe it wont), Sammy is a hipster trendy brand. And that just means owning a Premium Sony device kinda feels... 10 folds more unique.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Samsung s8+ or Sony XZ premiumXz premium no doubt, assuming you want specifically a Samsung smartphone, I wouldn't pay additional 400$ for stupid slimmer bezels and I would go with the s7, s8 is just meh, especially to the price.

Its true not much new to this phone except for its design, which many people will most likely buy over the xz premium sadly. Its just how it is has too much bezel. only 10 percent of people will pick xz p over s8.
For those who wants to buy s8 or xz premium...you should buy which one that you love..because it is using your own money...hahahah
DaOne, 31 Mar 2017Omg the best hardware u said? God. Even the new software is crap, who needs bixby if u have go... more They upped selfie cam to 8 mpx and added autofocus (XZ has 13 mpx, autofocus, 5axis stabilisation on that thing), iris scanner(another gimmick doing same as fp scanner), moved fp scanner back by the camera which is utterly bad design choice ...
retained same mono speaker (Xperias dual front surround since ages now), and same back camera with just added multiframe (same thing on my X Performance since year ago, XZ Prem all new more capable camera), and same or even lower size batteries.. .
Added a bigger screen with hdr (one from not7) but with unconventional aspect ratio that will ruin batterylife (XZ has 4k hdr for even better VR and media)
And renamed google assistent to some Bixby.
Only new thing in that phone is UFS card slot capability, but none to buy and try out yet....
And asking 50Â€ more than Premium for plain S8, and 150Â€ more for bigger screen one....
Yes it ll sell more than Premium without a doubt, but why exactly... is beyond me.

XZ Premium can download any VR content out there, and theres a bunch of VR headsets to buy for it, and guess what, 4K screen VR experience is throngs better at it than any fhd or 2k screen.
On Camera.... its not even out or tested yet, but seeing the samples and capabilities, and including my X Performance camera experience, which is superb, yes even in low light:
, it ll be the best one out there, no doubt....
