artyshat, 27 Feb 2017second time actually, sony already made one 4k phoneI said that Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the first 4K HDR phone(read the HDR part), I know that they released the first 4K phone, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, in 2015.
Well, this phone looks very promising, knowing the the X series back on the 2016 sucked badly, this can be their turn around. Yes, 2017 is actually the year of the bezeless and Sony Bezel is still a crime.. (come on, look at that). The other things beside the bezel are amazing though, now, they just need a pretty good marketing and PR team to promote it. Please learn from Samsung, they have one of the best marketing strategy out there..
Honestly, I am dissapointed. First of all, the phone is big, in comparison with the new LG G6, and the upcoming S8. I am saying this because of a reason. A new trend is coming this year, the trend of big screen and small body. Sony should have make smaller bezels, and add a 5.7 inch 4K display, not to repeat themself again.
Secondly, the phone is really heavy at 195g. What I also would like to see is some metal made Sony devices.
And for last, I believe Sony should come up with something unique, and I am NOT talking about camera features. If they want success, they should come up with something unique, because it will be hard to compete with others.
By the way, I am a Sony user, so do not say I am a Sony hater. I am only saying my opinion.
1gb ram is used only for camera wow Sony
For this technology other companies are mils behind from Sony
MazmuREAL, 27 Feb 2017Uuummm... Snapdragon 835 but with Bluetooth 4.2 ???bluetooth 4.2 only 320kp sec, sounds very compressed, this phone has sony 's ldac audiophile grade 998 kp sec wireless audio, very big difference
even qualcomm aptx hd rival audio wireless standard is only 598 kp sec.
Battery eater phone, what is use of 4K resolution on a phone, just give us good battery life and great cameras ,1080p is enoungh far 5-5inch screen, instead of 4K display, 4000mah battery would be good
Seriouly, Sony, still no new phone with Gsmarena battery rating over 100h?
LoLs samsung paid mans are here and did their ugly job .. 960 fps 4k hdr and amasing design .. peoples have eyes and they can see
This is the killer flagship Sony can do! To start. it has a beautiful side-bezelless design with an unbelievable 5.5" IPS Triluminos 4K HDR(the first on a handheld device, a round of applause to Sony) killer display with X-Reality Engine image and video enhancer, Android Nougat 7.1, the monster Snapdragon 835 with 64GB storage and 4GB RAM, the new 19MP OIS(we were waiting for ages for OIS, a round of clapps to Sony) with phase+laser autofocus 1/2.3"(the new 1GB of RAM stacked in sensor design, the first kind in the world, which can capture incredible 720p@960fps slow-motion video, the best on market) and a great selfie camera 13MP autofocus 1/3"(the main camera on Motorola Moto Z), Hi-res DAC 24-bit/192kHz with great stereo speakers. It will have Bluetooth 5.0, ad Wi-Fi and Snapdragon Quick Charge 4.0, the GsmArena specs will be corrected. All in all a killer flagship phablet which will be against Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, Oneplus 4?, LG V30?. It will be on shelves in late spring because of the Samsung-Qualcomm alliance. I recommend it instead of the competition for its better camera and 4K HDR screen, first time in a smartphone.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017Another brick with ugly bezels. Exactly, Sony will never learn. Bezels, that's all they can do. They were last in TV-sets, will be last in smartphones.
seriously are sony retared with the bezels? wow the design team must be held back by the CEO at sony producing such ugly phones.. i dont get it wtf they do...
Really? A bigger phone than the 5 premium but smaller battery?
And no Bluetooth 5.0?
