Ya, since ICS all they can do is copy pasting the UI. I guess the features like double tap to wake, screenrecorderand their file manager doesnt work well in oreo, and they dont have good RD to fix it. So better remove/disable them. Poor popular vendor

Totally love Sony. My current phone is Sony xperiaZ and it's still functioning until now. It even fell at a concrete still working fine. I am a very clumsy person I always have my phone falling off my hands and Sony right here still works for me even after that. Totally rocks. I hope the new Sony phones are still as good cause if I'm getting a new phone I would love to get a Sony phone still.
leo R, 23 Nov 2017Buttons of samsung phones can easily last 6-8 years. Samsung use only quality materials on it'... morewell after 6-8 years you cant even use phone to sent a single message it needs around 3 secs to launch messages after you pressing it :D with no other apps installed or updated :D so idk about quality(s2 plus)

Now they are going to close down because of you. Im guessing they disappointed you so now Sony company is garbage right...lol nice try! Your complaints show what kind of person you are. Sony is coming up. Your petty comments won't change a thing.

I believe Sony quality, because I really fallen my phone more than 10 times and still fine, even the 3 drop on Road! I could not imagine Samsung S 8+ can stay fine if fallen like I mentions.

Samsung use only quality materials on it's flagship devices and that's why their phones are sold like hot cakes. I have many samsung phones and all impress me with their quality.
My experience with eXperiance software was the worst.
- I need to root the phone only to 'change fonts'.
- To take screenshot i still need to press physical key.
- Storage ran out very quickly. I found it doubles all images in smaller size, when i deleted original images, the copies still there. i need to root it to delete them.
- I need to download many app, to make it functional and easy to use. Multi window app, screen recorder app, phone recorder app, even dialer app, camera app (nightshot with flash was useless), flash light app, dramashot, etc. Too much icons from imperfect apps, and tapping icons isnt good way to activate the app, thats useful feature should be on quick toggles..
- There was no cool feature i can show to my friend.
leo R, 23 Nov 2017It takes a bit to get used to it but it is always on, so you don't need to press power button ... moreSince you were Samsung user in the past i don't blame you for over caring about the durability of the power button and the charging port, Samsung smartphones were very now for lowlife span for these parts however Sony is totally deferent, i still have an more than 3 years old Xperia z1 and both the power button and the charging port are still brand new like when i bought it.
The fingerprint scanner position of the Galaxy 8 series are the worst in smartphone history, beside the camera lense what a dumb idea lol.
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2017 S8+ fingerprint scanner is bad design and annoying.It takes a bit to get used to it but it is always on, so you don't need to press power button which can save the life of power button of your phone unlike in sony flagships. Everytime I need to unlock my XZs, I need to press power button which is kinda annoying because I don't know how long my power button will last. I am sure it will really reduced the lifespan of power button because a recent study shows that most people unlock their devices 80 times a day, so 29200 times for one year and 58400 times for two years. That's a huge number and it still does not include power off/on and taking screen shot. Hopefully, my XZs power button will last for 2 years.
the only phone with the super slow motion with 960 fps which is amazing till date
before i was thinking about xz premium.
everything perfect, but large bezel makes me sad. now i got s8+.
till date im happy with that.
For some reason I find myself coming back to this phone. I¬ím not blind to its faults like the fanboys. The camera is weaker than the Samsung & Apple flagships. I don¬ít know if it¬ís the lack of OIS or Sony¬ís cruddy post-processing software. They¬íve got the hardware so there¬ís no excuse. However, I can¬ít get enough of the mirror finish, the snappy UI and superb battery life!
