Hi! Is it still worth buying this phone now, just a couple of months away from the new release? A little problem with the new model is that, from what I've seen here and you guys as well, they went for a 18:9, 5.7" screen. That will work like S8 and up screen: black bezzels when you watch non wide videos. They did include OIS (hopefully) and increased the battery by about 200mAh. The rest of the internals are the same. I hope Sony goes for the 845 cpu because it will kill others at speed because of their Ui. Maybe, just maybe we can still dream for a 4K tablet from Sony? I know I still do...
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017Pfft. checkout out lagsungs lagwiz ui.... hahaha :D
and I saw how the XZ Premium humiliated the S8+ in 3DMark test and the Note8 in speed test, despite booting slower than the Note8.
Sony's UI is the fastest, smoothest, and they always get the software updates first, for both 2017 and 2016 flagships.

Anonymous, 05 Dec 2017If I unlock and root this phone will I lose my DRM keys?? I want to flash lineage ROM.Yes, you will lose DRM keys once you unlock bootloader there's no way to restore them unless you find a solution to root with a locked bootloader to have it backed up which is impossible. I'm afraid you bought the wrong phone for flashing custom ROMs, Sony flagships are not a developer phone.
Khaled Seoud, 05 Dec 2017you're right man, Sony's UI is the fastest and the lightest..Pfft. checkout out lagsungs lagwiz ui....

xXENDER FREAKXx, 05 Dec 2017Wow, from BigDaddy99 to leo R to now TrueSonyFan? U sure got A LOT of usernames to hide yourself huhone of them desperate fanboys or haters, trying to grab attention by changing the nickname :D hahaha
Is the XZP still worth buying or should prospective buyers wait for this bezeless Sony on the horizon?
Mind you, just few weeks and bezeless HDR 4x is launching. Outdated premium is now antique.
AnonD-392500, 04 Dec 2017Hah... Much better but still exists, right? Wow, from BigDaddy99 to leo R to now TrueSonyFan? U sure got A LOT of usernames to hide yourself huh
Avan Dr, 03 Dec 2017I will never buy their product again, till google trust them to make pixels (means they need t... moreI don't get how people say Xperia's UI is ugly. It's very classy and elegant from the font they use, the UI sound, icons and everything looks modern to me. Also it's clean and light. Everyone else UI looks childish and the same
For anyone on the fence about buying this phone. Go to a store and compare some phones with it. I guaranteed you, the screen will blow you away. It's better to experience is phone in person than videos or pics. Too may people spreading lies, go and have a look for yourself

Plus extra PS4 remoteplay and PS4 dualshock support.
Look it up.

Both xz and 5t share excellent software optimization, Display i definitely give it to xz premium because of the amazing quality despite the fact that the 5t has slightly bigger display, keep in mind you don't have screen bezels in the 5t and the mate 10 to rest your thumb fingers on.
-speakers, here you need to choose between loudness and audio experience, the 5t and the mate 10 speakers are noticeably louder, however their speakers are placed at the bottom so it is exposed to be blocked with your hand when holding your smartphone in landscape mode, however the speakers of the xz premium are dual front facing stereo speakers placed at the top and bottom screen bezels directed to your face, not as loud as the mate 10 and 5t but it has amazing audio experience.
Battery life all almost the same, but Sony with the Qnovo adaptive charging and battery care features has the longest battery life span in any smartphone.
