when i 1st got my job, my 1st salary i use to buy sony Ericsson k530i. What a beautiful phone, nice camera and sound so loud. After that i upgraded to xperia Arc s, then xperia ion. I alson have used xperia L, xperia z, z ultra, Z, z1, z2, z3 and now XZ Premium. i planned to upgrade once more time if sony released xz pro, but sadly the xz2 is disappointing me.. but never mind.. THE BEST IS YET TO COME, believe in sony.
XZ1/Premium with smaller bezels and, why not, the placing of front speakers like Z2... Ow man; that was my dream phone!... Much likely to the 'Y' concept leaked in 2015 - Too bad it never became a reality...
Almost 4 years with my Z3... It endured a lot, lol - Now I'm upset, dissappointed and even frightened if they continue this design trend at IFA with the pro; so long outplacing S9+... entire months waiting anxiously for the no-show announcement performed today :(
I'm gonna spend, here in my country, the day after tomorrow almost US$1000 for a proven, future-proof, beast of a flagship (even though it's a year old model now) like the XZ Premium Sony... you aren't to blame for that but if you dissapoint me in a couple of months you will be as I've got a mixed feeling from now on like a lot of your soon to be "used-to-be-fans"

Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018Haha. Are you a student? Who carry backpack when you go bar with your friends?Firstly, if you're an European, we do have different stereotypes because I'm Asian. Most or some Asians don't go bar. For me go out with friends is like having dinner & attending party but not go bar. They know me as a photographer. But I'm not oftenly bring the backpack wherever I go :-)
It's looks like this is my last sony smartphone. They have changed their unique design with xz2. They have started to copy others design. I bought this just because of sony's unique design. Good bye sony.

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2018So, do you always carry a tripod when you go out with friends at night?I could put the tripod in my backpack. So, sometimes if not always.

xXENDER FREAKXx, 25 Feb 2018Nope, no problems at allI forgot to ask if it's running Oreo... but that's a relief seeing also that the SD845 will inevitably be compromised too; I heard somewhere that they slowed down a bit - Thanks!
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018Is it normal for the phone to lose 10% battery in 20-30 minutes due to video streaming? I had a Qhd lg with 3000 mah and hardly got one day of use because of the the screen power consumption. I'm not an expert but i don't think those 3230 are barely enough for that resolution.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 23 Feb 2018Yep, for the app updates recently. I am starting to observe some battery drain especially from... moreHey Ender! Sorry to bother you, but as I understand you have this and the other SD835 Xperia flagship; may I ask if you noticed a slow-down at performance both in the CPU and GPU after the Meltdown & Spectre patch releases?
I mean, if it's plain visible to the eye; not the one nitpicking for ex. 3CToolBox measured type; lol
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2018Is it true that single sim does not have a memory card slot? Of I bought a single sim xz prem... moreActually both versions have it but the dual SIM variant I guess uses the hybrid tray slot instead of the 2nd. so you'll have to choose
Is screen resolution change if i adjust the screen width in developer option?
Is it true that single sim does not have a memory card slot? Of I bought a single sim xz premium can I insert my memory card? Or only dual sim model have a memory card slot?
I got my XZ Premium i have it 4 days now and im a bit dissapointed first of all the lowlight pictures is very bad but very good at good light the flash is very bad the speakers is bad the battery is okay but i think a bigger battery one was needed because of good processor and 4K video recording jah but besides of all of that i mentioned i like the phones look sharp edges but i will truely swap for a s7edge or S8

I am starting to observe some battery drain especially from YouTube. Somehow it starts to drain faster than before about a week ago, where it is the most recent update received for YouTube...
Ali Bashir, 22 Feb 2018Go here, the real award, the best new smartphone at MWC 2017 Sony xperia xz premium.
https://... moreSony has NEVER won a "Best phone of the year" award at gsmarena.
That "new phone" award was given on 12 February 2017. Before most other brands released their new 2017 flagships. Its a nothing award.
Last "Best phone of the year" was Samsung Galaxy S7 from 2016. No BEST phone of the year award given since.
In fact, Samsung has won "Best phone of the year" four times out of the last 6 years at gsmarena.
Sony has NEVER won a "Best phone of the year" award at gsmarena.
