KnashKyrone, 15 Sep 2017For all the XZ Premium users, Can the home screen rotate?Yes, it can rotate.

People don't realize the fact that this screen is so well protected from accidental bumps and drops. Metal transfer force to the screen more than plastic so good on them for choosing plastic for the sides.
Onto bezelless...none of them stands out on their own. They all look like copycats of each other so why hate when we want something different.
xz p is fantasticccc
one question_where can i stop sms preview ? so when im in one app for example and i have an sms how can i stop the preview buble at the top? i only want the notification and thats it or the notification with the content hidden
It's a good phone. But what makes this phone only good but not amazing is the speaker volume, it's simply too low. I've tested it today in the store and I could never own this phone just because of that. I have the HTC U11 and to me that's a better phone overall than the XZ Premium. I've compared my U11 with S8, iPhone 7 and LG G6 and it's better in camera performance and sound quality. Speed, display and battery life are great too. HTC U11 is the best phone of 2017 imo. I heard that Sony has louder speakers on the XZ1 so that's a good thing because I like Sony too and I'll probably buy a flagship phone from them in the future.

Use logic, or do an experiment, If you have a QHD phone, then you install FHD ROM, it will run at FHD, and videos and photos still run at full resolution. And now you can say your phone has ??Adaptive??? display like bonys.
So, The truth is they dont do anything, they install the same software like on their other 1080p phones and that what happens. 4K is only for photos n videos, thats it. No automatic no adaptive.
I tried the phone and checked it, as I do with every flagship when it's released: Sony XZ Premium rules, the phone is a beast, the "BEAST" of them all.
Thank you Sony.
avan Rd, 13 Sep 2017If Apple, LG, sammy dont make 4K screen and 960fps, it is not bcz they cant. Its only because ... more1. 4K HDR screens and 960 fps videos are unnecessary?
This is called innovation as someone mentioned before.
2. Sony makes bezelless TVs, therefore making bezelless phones is very easy for them.
3. Sony's phone design is great, it has two front facing stereo speakers on the top and bottom bezels, not like others..
4. Sony's UI is very smooth and considered near-stock, not heavily customized like otherd..
5. the 4K resolution autoswitches to 1080p when not running 4K HDR videos or viewing photos at high resolution.
6. Sony has its own perspective and doesn't need to follow trends, they do better things with the normal screens, and they are beasts in screen tests and 1080p always wins, either with them or other brands.
7. instead of bashing on Sony, go for the brand that satisfies your needs and get the phone that suits you.. Sony has their users who appreciate them, and not fanboys who bash on other brands just like fanboys of other brands who come to bash on Sony!!
8. there is something called FHD+ for 18:9 screens, like in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, which means that it works.
9. you need to read and do researches before writing any nonsense..
NikoLasdi, 14 Sep 2017That doesnt change anything, except there is option to change resolution in setting.
We ca... moreReal skill is making an adaptive screen, one which changes resolution automatically based on content, for best content performance.
Games and UI run at FHD because they perform best at that res, video and photo run at 4k res because they look (perform) best at that res.
So overall you get the best performing device with top specs.
No one does optimize hardware and software better than Sony. Apple follows the same principles, at least until X now, but lacks too much android available features.

zeeshan.mazhari, 13 Sep 2017Brother do some research, you can alter UI resolution to 4K on XZ Premium.That doesnt change anything, except there is option to change resolution in setting.
We can make it run 4K with the mod, so we are now realise even amateur developer has better skill than bony...
zeeshan.mazhari, 13 Sep 2017Things that u r referring as unnecessary are actually called innovation and sadly Apple, LG, S... morePlease do think. From S4, G2, I4 to S8, G6 and iphone X yes they are look the same but there are many change, whenever they increase screen resolution they tweak the ui to adapt it, there are many new features.
bony since original Z only do copypasting ui is all set at 1080p, they cant tweak the ui. They even cant tweak notification center, nav bar etc. This is undeniable FACT.
First they cancel their QHD phone, Xperia Z3V (FACT), there is no reasonable explanation than they cant tweak the UI to run QHD, QHD run 1080p is embarassing, so they change the plan, they outed Z5 premium. 4K run 1080p is alright. There is no phone with that resolution. so since original Z to XZ premium the ui are all 1080p. No change.
