When I saw Xperia XZ Premium first, I didn't like its design. I even said so in Galaxy S8 comments section. But then, after watching videos of XZ Premium, I am beginning to like it. Its design may not be different from other Xperias but it sure is different from other manufacturers. I think it will be somewhat refreshing to have a phone not similar to others, after all everybody else is going to buy the S8.
But, does anybody if Sony has plan to revive its Xperia Play? Now that was something else. Would love to have a modern version of the phone.

For 8 years, I used Samsung flagships and now I am using an S7 edge. Good phone with an excellent camera, acceptable speed and terrible speakers. S7 edge is like a soap in hand, so easy to drop. I dropped mine thrice, thanks it survived all.
I watched all videos about xperia XZ premium and I loved the phone. I certainly decided to buy one, because it has everything S7 lacks.But now trying to find out release date, I am stunned.January,1st Sony starts shipping.
Lord, if Sony can not afford to launch earlier why publicize it. You can be sure late release of the phone will cost Sony tens of thousands of less sales.

1/2.3 stacked sensor rule!
Tann Hauser, 03 Apr 2017Yup, had that "computer dock" since Xperia Neo back in 2011. 😊 Docks are nonsens... moreYep thats true nowadays connection are wireless rules thats why sony remove it from z5 linr
With the other players not releasing phones with 4k displays kind of makes the xz premium a niche product? Everybody seems to have agreed that 2k is just overkill for mobile phones. So sony kind of missed the target with this one. Not to mention the design. LG and Samsung are going for less bezel and here Sony is not being very shy with it. Where is the Arc?
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2017Sony's design is like Lamborghini whereas Samsung design is that of a Ford FocusSony from japan,samsung from korea,so i prefer sony design is like nissan gtr,and samsung design is like hyundai or kia ,hahaha
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2017Sony's design is like Lamborghini whereas Samsung design is that of a Ford FocusSeriously you are comparing this with Lamborghini? Lamborghini is famous for its exceptional unique design, do you think this phone's design is up to that level? Look at its Bezels and think again....
And i am not a Samsung fanboy

all the people hating on this design. The S8 looks weird because its extra tall and thin. Its like someone just spaghetified the phone frmo top and its elongated.
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017I have to say the Xperia XZ Premium is better options. - XZP running android 7.1 but S8+ is a... moreyou hit the nail in the head bro. Not to mention all the audio features too. although samsung is stepping up its game in the audio ever since they acquired harman and now have partnered with AKG a very well known brand among audio philes. It means sony has to step up its game too. Also, when sony makes their oled on the xperia the bezels will decrease in size .
Celluloid, 04 Apr 2017Justly glorified because you can't bypass it with a simple photograph.it stupid feature that all it is.. that and facial recognition
speaking of facial recognition sony removed that form phones long time ago
Harold, 04 Apr 2017Yes except the s8 has a shitty location for a fingerprint sensor, ugly soap design, weird scre... moretbh the only thing that makes me hyped about this phone is the extreme slow-motion for the camera
So this no longer uses Sony Messaging app? All of the previews have Android Messages.
