They said they'll stop releasing premium mid-range phones like the X, which turned out to be a flop. Read more carefully. Also, Sony mobile is expecting better sales figures this year, so they're not disappearing anytime soon.

I want expres... moreYou are totally wrong, Korean still behind Japanese in tech and quality control. But Korean is well marketing, it is like a businessman, every moral sweep under the carpet. Samsung hire writers/blogger to trolling/discredit the competitor (especially Sony and HTC: same in Android OS), because Samsung know Sony and HTC are good and better in something that Samsung never had.
You said the Sony retire staff hired by Samsung, but I can't find the news. I can only find the employees was not happy with Samsung and some employees die/sick because of he/she job. And don't mention how they corruption in between government and the Korean still have to support it otherwise Korean will losing money, because Samsung is the one kingdom business in Korea. The Korea's law can't do nothing to the Samsung.
[deleted post]I read the article. But it doesn't make any difference. Still you didn't get me. I want express that japanese tech is not the future. Their days are gone. Not only sony imagine what has happened to Panasonic, Toshiba, sharp their business is shrinking day by day. No body can revese anything. Korean tech go ahead j@panese can't make impact. Now they try only to defend. Ex. Sony now concentrate only on Xperia x series. They let go their mid range phones
AnonD-507185, 09 Jun 2017This phone is amazing! My only concern was the battery capacity but that doesn't even matter. ... moreHi, how about audio output quality in wireless audio systems!? And his dual stereo speakers =]
Thanks in wireless
AnonD-481725, 09 Jun 2017Exactly, and even the Chinese. Masters ats it's and other ones too don't fall far.behind!!
This phone is amazing! My only concern was the battery capacity but that doesn't even matter. I have both this and the oneplus 3T and this phone easily outlasts the 3T. I got around 5- 6 hours of screen on time from the 3T (and the phone usually lasted till like 7pm with heavy use, dash charging was excellent in recharging the phone back to 100% though).
The Xperia XZ Premium has hit the highest I have ever gotten in terms of screen on time among all my android devices (8h:46m50s with heavy use) and it easily lasted till the next day.
Front facing speakers are not as loud as the single speaker on the 3T but they are clearer at max volume and much better when using in portrait mode against the 3T because no more covering the bottom speaker with my pinky finger!
The phone is super fast!!!
Nice heft to it, I put a case right away so I don't mistakenly drop $$$ lol
Cameras are very good (first time I'm satisfied with a sony mobile camera, my only other sony was the xperia z2)
Fingerprint scanner is in an excellent position and listening to music with the noise cancelling headphones or XB-20 bluetooth speaker is an absolute joy.
GOOD PHONE from SONY this time

As i heard Samsung hired All talented engineers who works with sony after their retirement from sony. About 10 years ago sony was famous for durable products hence they charge more for their products. But that theory is not relevant now. That durability gap is closed now. Korean gives same product for less prices. Sony can't market durability any more. That's why their market share is shrinking. Their tv division & sony pictures all struggle. Camera and camera sensors are only profitable for them. I heard Apple is going to make their own sensors for their camera. So sooner or later sony is going to die.

Most people think Samsung the one who bring waterproofing in flagship smartphone, when in fact it sony
Other than that the fp scanner, nope, iPhone isn't first but Toshiba g500 or for smartphone Motorola atrix
The reason of this confusion? Yes, the marketing
Outcome, mass market don't buy the device because the didn't know what to expect from a phone that doesn't tell anything to mass what feature it has
AnonD-219742, 09 Jun 2017Ok. No need to waste too much words. What I'm telling is not relevant to you & what you t... moreAt least in Hong Kong (where I live right now) The Sony Z5 Premium still have good resell value and still have software update (mostly due to good sales being the only device that have 4k screen for a long time). All other sony devices including XZs have crap resell value, but that also the same for samsung devices. The only phones that have good resell value still now are the IPhones.

What I'm telling is not relevant to you & what you tell is not relevant to me. You are a srilankan. I ask you one thing, try to sell your precious sony device today. As a used phone your device is nothing compare to s8. You will get little more than half of the phone value. I sold my z3+ less than half the value. plus your device is null & void after 5 months when next Xperia comes with a slight improvement. Im not gonna buy a phone just because of slow motion camera, or just because of sterio sound. I need features. I like Samsung features. Samsung always gives overall satisfaction to anroid users. Not like other brands who only focus on a one feature at a time.
