Watch video speed test comparisons in youtube particularly the the iPhone 7 vs. Samsung Galaxy S8 vs. Google Pixel vs. LG G6 speed test. Google Pixel is the slowest of them all. And it's NOT a big deal at all. Speed is hardly anything that people notice and care about when they buy or use a smartphone. And most people don't prefer featureless stock Android. Touchwiz is so far ahead than stock Android that going from the former to the latter would be a massive downgrade. Current Touchwiz is what stock Android will be after 5 years.

You're also ignoring the fact that the XZs has a slower processor and storage, still it performs fast.
"The S8 shines and outclasses every smartphone in handling heavy and graphics extensive apps." You're contradicting yourself here. In your previous comment you told speed tests are useless and you don't care about split second differences. But since S8 was marginally faster than the XZs in loading games, you're using that in your argument.
And Sony's software being close to stock Android is a good thing. Most people prefer stock Android, not some LagWiz skin that only makes your phone slow.

Ali Bashir, 30 Apr 2017Absolutely wrong the sony Xperia x performance is the second, please get your facts right. No tech review site gives favorable review on any Sony smartphone camera. Even GSMArena puts Sony last in their camera comparison.
S7/S8, Pixel, iPhone 7 are the trinity of smartphone cameras.
I have yet to see a S8 that has a red tinted display. That case is so rare. Like I said before the S7 edge had a more widespread serious issue but it affected only a small percentage of actual retail units. Even in video reviews and comparisons in youtube, I've yet to see a red tinted S8. That is such a non-issue. There will always be a small percentage of units in any phones that will have imperfections. Not all of them have issues. The great thing about Samsung is that they replace your unit right away if yours happens to have certain flaws. Even they replace your battery for free before your warranty ends. Samsung have excellent customer service. Can't say the same about companies.

A split second difference in opening apps is negligible and hardly tells the overall performance of the device. The S8 shines and outclasses every smartphone in handling heavy and graphics extensive apps and transmitting/importing/exporting large amounts of data due to its superior hardware. The Pixel is also outclassed by other smartphones in speed test videos but that doesn't mean it is a slow phone.
Sony does not do anything but to optimize and update their phones. That's the only thing they do. They don't add any new features except whatever stock Android brings.

S8 has a good camera, but most reviewers still prefer the Pixel's camera. Yes, it has a high end storage, but what's the use of it, if it still gets defeated by phones with eMMc storage?

It is the smartphone both Google and Apple aim to beat. Samsung manufactures nearly all hardware components from the screen, RAM, flash storage to processor chips and even DACs. Everyone just buys from Samsung. Samsung puts the latest and best in their phones. They sell the lower end technologies to others.

The S8's camera is slightly improved from the S7 so it's probably tied or perhaps better now than the Pixel. Sony phones have never made it to the top 10 of the best camera smartphones list. It's not even a competition.

The almost bezel less design is amazing, but still doesn't justify the price tag. And the S8s sold in my country don't get any freebies like a free gear VR, DeX dock (useless), etc. Yes, the AKG earphones are great, but I'm buying the phone, not the headset.
And the price tag of the XZ Premium is still lower than the S8, and that's a great thing. You can't get a phone like the XZp for $600.
