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.

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

So this no longer uses Sony Messaging app? All of the previews have Android Messages.

Damn, this new camera is going straight to 95 at dxo!

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.
