In my opinion, Sony has done well with this design. Why do you need to do what others already did? Why do you need to change what is already perfect? And even a monkey can know that these "premium" phones are just aiming primarily for loyal fans, so why even concern if you never buy and use it? I am a fan, so I will buy this and live with all its perfections and flaws.
P/S. As a designer and mechanical engineer, the only Samsung designs which I liked were Samsung Wave and Galaxy S6. S7 and S8 (recently revealed) are not my type.
The fact that they have a region locked fingerprint sensor is stupid. Otherwise this phone seems pretty good.
If they made a Google Edition of this phone, it would be flying off the shelves.
*It has Bluetooth® 5.0 according to official site
This is what i expect from Sony 😍 Amazing Monster phone..... Surely gonna buy this beast 😊😊 sony ram & battery management is absolutely awesome... I'm currently using xperia Z3
Omid46, 26 Feb 2017Thanks goodness that finally uncle Sony the pioneer found itself in 2017!!!But I think Bluetoo... moreThey are unlikely to use Bluetooth 5 at this moment as they have their own audiophile grade wireless called ldac
The specs sound nice but when phone comes out in the spring got to have at least 700 dollars to afford this thing.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 20171gb ram is used only for camera wow Sony For this technology other companies are mils behind... more128 mb are used for camera and are a separate thing. The 4gb of RAM are untouched ( except for the gpu )
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017A 5.5 inch 4K HDR display isn't unique? LolThe HDR screen is, but it should be bigger. The Z Premium from 2015 had a 5.5 inch display also.
cyber soldier, 27 Feb 2017anyone notice xperia XZ premium's camera resolution reduces to 19MP?It has a new camera sensor(probably the MX400).
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2017No radio again, Sony? You're asking us to ditch you, aren't you?telk me a modern flagship with radio
Georgio, 27 Feb 2017Lg an Samsung have less bezel because they don't have stereo speakers.The LG 6 indeed has only one speaker, but we do not know if the S8 will have or not stereo speakers, because Samsung may go on the way like HTC did on the 10.
