Look at it yourself. That will be a crazy fact if no cheat or trick is done.
I can get G6 for $520.

I actually waited for the V30 to be released as i thought it would make the G6 cheaper. But when i went to the website of the store where the G6 was sold at the cheapest, they already pulled it out so i went to the store and the only G6 is left is the unit which is in display. I think you can wait for the V30 to be released but lets just hope that it wont be out of stock by then. Also G6 is very cheap now at least in the country im in now so even if the price got lower by the release of V30 I do not think it will be that much of a difference.

Yea saw the speed comparison, clearly because sony has newer faster process, weird why LG was in hurry releasing lg earlier than g5 date year before..so rushed with older processor!! maybe wanted a gap time with V30 that is my best choice but it will be available for buying at least 1 month from now and at maybe double G6 price.
Do you think G6 price can go even lower in 1 or 2 weeks as V30 nearing?
Do you have the black or platinum G6? because i saw benchmark comparison showing black is faster! strangely why?!

I do have both LG G6 and XZ Premium and i can guarantee you that XZP is better than G6 in terms of performance in almost everything (except for battery and low light pictures). But I also admit that G6 is also a good phone especially now that it is way cheaper with xzp.
Looking at Sony Xperia XZ Premium specs, must say this phone is really underrated.
Am planning on buying LG G6, but checking this phone too. The problem in sony phones is the no special design, almost same shape for years, also many say specs are very good but on paper only like better cameras number but blurry pics...also sound.. Can anyone give an honest review about this phone?

These people speaking bad and trying to drag sony to the mud have no idea that in life what goes around comes around. Some of them probably have great plans in life, plans to setup big company and the rest but i wonder how the expression and the thoughts in there mind will be when they are making clear and real progress in a particular area in an industry only to be ridiculed unjustly by someone else or group of people who have almost no idea of what they are speaking of. I know for a fact that sony need to freshen things up in design department but they on the other have made significant progress in there overall phone performance to the extent that xperia is much speedier or faster than even iphone in day by day use. For years sony have suffered this mindless attacks and i think its about time people grow up and act responsible. If you love sony, buy there product. If you don't, move on and stop discouraging those who base there purchase on review of others that will unfortunately come across your senseless and zero value information.
Good job Sony! Proud of you! You are still in the position of one of the best smartphones that was built in history.. good job!

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.

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..

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.
