I listen with earphones the majority of the time, anyway. The fingerprint sensor location is dumb, I'll give you, that but iris scanning resolves that. I wanted to get on board with the XZP but I can't overlook the design. The bezels and mirror-finish don't do it for me.

Xperia is miles ahead
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2017Samsung s8+ or Sony XZ premiumI've gone for the Samsung Galaxy S8+. It was almost purely an aesthetic decision. I prefer the S8's curved display, whereas the XZP looks blocky and I can see the reflective finish being a distraction. In terms of internals, I don't think there's a lot to choose between the two.
Just looks like a brick which works as a mobile. What happened to Sony designing team? I haven't seen a well designed Sony mobile in recent times.

S8 only have 2K display and it don't shift the display to saving energy and I DONT like the Samsung display colors, when reading webpage in the dim light condition also not comfort as it turn the black pixel light off contrast the white webpage is very dizzy for long time reading.
beto, 04 Apr 2017Sony never more...OK. Nobody forces you to buy Sony. Buy Samsung and it will lag after few months and you will cry and cry all day long.

Fuad khan787, 03 Apr 2017Over All which is the best Sony Xperia XZ premium Or Samsung galaxy s8+I have to say the Xperia XZ Premium is better options.
- XZP running android 7.1 but S8+ is android 7.0.
- S8+ overall bigger than XZP but lighter than XZP, S8+ use more plastic and not sturdy.
- XZP whole phone feels so sturdy as if it's cut out from a single aluminum block and it .....
- have stereo speaker.
- have a better place of fingerprint button.
- have HDR and 4K display.
- have latest camera sensor with Motion Eye features.
- Laser AF and RGB-IR sensor for faster and better capture and white balance in all conditions.
- 13MP 25mm selfie front camera.
- Qnovo battery charging tech.
........ all these show that XZP better than S8+.

Sony has addressed the bezel issues before. It's because of that huge sensor. It's either you want a thick bezel, a thick device, or a huge camera bump. The HTC U Ultra has the same sensor size and look at the size of that hump. And since the bezel headroom was there, Sony felt the need to upgrade the front camera to a 13 mpx 1/3.06 sensor. Also count the front facing speakers. The side bezels are there to house the side-positioned fingerprint scanner since it's circuitry has to go somewhere, the same reason why they can't put a fingerprint scanner to the Xperia XA and XA1 since those screens are borderless. The bottom bezel? LG actually explained it to us when it unveiled the LG G6, "a fair amount of users still need a chin to hold their phone properly", and they implemented a fair amount of bezel there. But on Sony's part, they have front facing speakers, so the bezel has to enlarge itself even if the speakers were slits in the edges(which looks dope as if IMO). TBH, I find the bezels in the XZP just ok, it could give you enough handling and space to hold the phone. Also consider aesthetics, would a phone with a smaller bottom bezel than it's top one look weird? First, it would only please you as eye-candy, there's no practical use-case for it. Second, there would be compromises when thinning the bezels, current innovations aren't really made for thin bezelled phones, but I do like this 18:9 aspect ratio. (18:9, not 18.5:9)
