Very honest and unbiased feedback. Just wanted to add here that mine came with Fast charger, may be they are providing it in UAE. and for the slow motion videos, the technology on smartphones are still not up to the mark to capture same sort of videos/pictures in low light as it captures during day light. In my case I find low light normal videos to be fine.

-first about low light shot,with hand held low light shot may become quite blurry because lack of ois,but you can try out a manual mode and place the phone on steady place like tripod,the result will be much better..
-second about low light slow mo, a slow mo video should be shot in good light condition, this is due to FPS that move so fast that it barely capture the light,so if slow mo being shot in low light condition,the result are quite bad,not only in xzp slow mo but all camera that have slow mo be like this
btw thanks again for you great review,cheers :)
I bought this phone 2 days ago ... This is my 1st ever Sony phone after ages ... I found it fantastic ... here are pros and cons ...
-- Excellent premium looking design specially in Grey it looks stunning ...
-- Battery life is very Good ... I recently bought Anker Quick Charger 3 Which charge it in One hour & 20 minutes from 0--- to---100 ... & battery give great performance ...
-- Excellent Stunning eye catching display , Specially in Vived Mode its very sharp
-- Camera give detail images with clarity ... specially in day light i found XZP far better then my wife's Samsung S8 + ...
-- Playing games specially 8-ball poll is a wonderful experience , Best for gaming
-- Internet ,You-tube & browsing is blazing fast then S8+ Even ... Though S8+ also comes with Snapdragon 835 Chip-set but i found Sony XZP better in performance then S8 + ... Its Super-fast & very responsive ... Better touch pad then S8+ ... etc
-- Its Finger print sensor is on perfect place , Very fast & responsive & far far better then S8+ ...
-- Call Quality is loud & clear with no signal issues at all
-- No heating issue even after heaving usage like we have seen in previous Sony Phones
-- Its Camera perform very bad in low light without flash ... Though best in daylight
-- No Quick Charger 3 Comes with box & normal charger took near two hours for 0--- 100
-- No photo editors in camera software like samsung have
-- 4k Video on youtube or even playing 1080p drains battery even with low display
-- 4K Display is not for all the time on screen ,,, though its very elegant and sharp
-- Very premium & sensitive set ... We cant use without Front glass & back cover or clear coating ... Though its not slippery but our hand impressions left after hard use on back glass
-- Speaker is not much loud and below average while playing videos etc etc or ringing
-- Low light slow motion videos or normal videos by its camera is a kind of disaster in low light , which is the only thing which disappoint me much
-- Very expensive device
-- Battery is not that powerful as compare with S8+ Though its good but drains fast in playing 4K Video's or even 1080p video's in youtube ...
Its a great experience for me to use Sony XZP , As i switched from Samsung Galaxy Note 5 ... Hope you like my detail experience with this device of few days

AnonD-673764, 09 Aug 2017This is my dream phone, i can't wait buying it. Haters go ...hhhYou are gonna love it as much as I love mine :) The blacks is amazing on this screen and colours really pop. Seriously, can't stop looking at this damn thing, it's truly a work of art and belongs in a museum, like they said back at MWC earlier this year
It's a lovely piece of kit, that The Ladies can use as a mirror, if they forget to put one in their handbag?

This is my dream phone, i can't wait buying it.
Haters go ...hhh

So in conclusion the people that complain about Sony's new gimmick are obviously from SAMSUNG most of the time
That is a theorry or your thinking
Xzp screen is great
Many people give many invalid complain
A hater is a liar
savage, 08 Aug 2017What de hel are you talking about,your comment is nonsense,did you even know what is FPS ,and ... moreOn a TV larger than 50 " you can see the difference between 1080 and 4K.....On a mobile phone the human can't see the difference between 1080 and 4K. Its just that simple.
Great Phone. Fast, responsive and reliable with excelent sound. Shot lots of 4k videos at sunny Crete hot conditions and never had overheating issue. Very easy inphone editing with PowerDirector app. You can see outcome on YouTube, Crete 2017-Sony XZ Premium 4k video.
AnonD-20461, 08 Aug 2017I hope the other company dont use 4k display If they use it i hope u complain them too X... moreThey just don't want to accept the fate that Sony have another 4K display and now with HDR. U know, haters, always feel salty about new Sony innovations XD

On a mobile phone screen, (about 5 inches) the human eye can't see the difference between 1080 and 4K. On a 50 inch TV screen 4K display is quite noticable. Don't believe me, then google it.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2017Actually 960 fps is incorrect and false advertising, since it only works for 0.2 of a second. ... moreRecorded video format in 960 fps mode is 30fps default. while the slow motion part only took 5sec long after the processing. Taking a fully one second 960fps will convert to 33 seconds in default format 30fps.
960fps % 30fps = 33s
1s % 33s x 5s =0.15s
it even less that 0.2s
