The 4k display of the xzp is proven by many people it doesn't drain the battery even if it is adjusted to work 4k on time proven on YouTube.

It's not just "a few devices." Whether you notice it and whether it bothers you or not is an entirely different matter. I can see it straight away and it bugs the hell out of me.

The human eye cannot see the difference between 2k and 4k on a small 5.2 inch mobile phone screen. You need at least a 50 inch TV for that. Don't believe me, then google it. And running in a 4k screen is extremely battery hungry. And yes, if Samsung does it, then it would be a gimmick also, but Samsung doesn't have a 4k display. I never said that the phone was bad. If your happy, that's all that matters.

If samsung uses 4k content too also gimmick??
You are just a haters...
Many people love the 4k, many reviewers....
I got this phone, the phone is very excellent
4k video on 2k display, that is a gimmick

Only Sony is using this sales gimmick. Google it as there is plenty of info about this online.
Wow, U HD screen resolution in Andriod phone. Samsung wanted to do it but could not but Sony is doing it already. Guys how does this affect the battery life. 807 PPI too much. Also how clear is the screen, is it better than S7 edge and S8?

There are 15 or so fellas reporting more than usual distortion there.
One of them even reported he had xchanged the device for another unit and everything is peechy for him now.
Some very few lenses out of millions obviously had a production defect.
So no, and stop overreacting over a few issue reports.

But they will fix it after some updates. My Z3 was a bit laggy. But now it is very smooth with marshmallow. Anyway if you don't want Sony you can buy HTC U11.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2017Sony UI is very smooth. You will see it yourself.Just tried the Xz premium at the local shop and ui appears somewhat sluggish. The salesman said it was just put out this morning, so either it has a bad ui or its a fault. Anyway, the huge bezels makes it look like a 2013 phone, so I will choose another brand. Anyone recommend another flagship model ? Plus I want good autofocus low light photography and not interested in manual mode, as my shots are done quickly on the spot at work.
This is by far one of the best android phone out there, it has a great camera, great build quality, great battery (moderate use and some heavy use) cant complain i like this phone coming from an Iphone 6s plus and a S7 edge (crappy phone by the way just a little fall to the ground and you have to throw it away to the garbage bin) the screen is amazing i like how this lcd display has a wide color gamut and the best of all 4K with HDR cant complain this is my daily driver for the next 3 years
LisaStepUSA, 24 Jul 2017Which phone were you using just prior to returning to the XZP? I've been switching between a couple of different phones. My last one was the S7 Edge.
