The XZs should've been released in 2016 instead of the XZ and even that still lags behind most other 2016 flagship smartphones.

Try and thinks the features you mentioned are really useful to daily lifestyle
Among features most are duplicated from google despite they are useless unlike google performances
Some are gimmicks and intend to the showroom presentation of 5minutes
You can not check out battery life internet speed and multi audio system
Also there is no download Apps and so you can't find sluggish and lags
Unfortunately, with your full load of apps and games S8 will shows its full figures of lagging......
Moreover Amoled screen has shorter screen life span and Colour degradation keep going day to day but it can't be divided in a months
But a few months later you can obviously see thec colour degradation and sluggish
Unsurprisingly it is an Amoled culture
Try and thinks again
but be honest
It is not a debate we all are users and we shouldn't give false or brainwashed facts among us
The selfy camera of this beast is fabulous, it crushed the s8+ in all aspects.

Screen, camera, battery life even fast charging/wireless charging, multitasking, gaming plus tons of advanced features are better on the S7. There really is no contest. Most of the S8 apps are even being updated on the S7. The S7 currently has about 95% of the features of the S8. The only thing that's missing on the S7 are hardware-related features such as the iris scanner and not so important ones like the Snapchat-like filters in camera, although I'm hoping that will be brought to the S7 as well in the next updates. The S7 feels very much like a 2017 flagship. The XZ was outdated long before it was even released.

If you haven't looked into my profile here, I have favorited 2 Sony phones. That was before when I was still choosing what to buy between the S7 and the XZ. I have tested and compared both extensively and found the XZ to be inferior in virtually every aspect to the S7. XZ ain't bad at all. It's just that it's greatly overshadowed and outshined by the S7 if you use and compare both of them personally - from the screen, design, camera, RAM, to battery life and software features. Even the S7 comes with complete accessories in the box and freebies like a wireless charging pad. The XZ being sold in my country doesn't even have earphones included in the box. And it was more expensive than the S7 at the time I was about to buy a phone. So you're basically paying for the phone itself that doesn't even have the latest specs and nothing else at all. It's just so not worth it.

Who's copying now?

It's obvious you have never used a Samsung Galaxy phone. Apart from the ones I've mentioned above, there are no other Samsung propreitary apps preinstalled on Galaxy phones. What's preinstalled instead are Google apps that apart from Gmail and Maps are all inferior to their Samsung counterparts. Samsung's Internet browser, Music player, Gallery, Samsung Pay, Samsung Health are all superior to Chrome, Play Music, Photos, Android Pay and Google Fit. Even Samsung's clock, memo, voice recorder apps are better and has more features and nicer interface than Google ones. Those Google apps and the Microsoft office apps which come preinstalled with Samsung phones are what I call bloatwares. I never use them apart from Gmail and Maps. At least Samsung Galaxy phones don't come with utter useless apps like Amazon app. Samsung invests big time both in hardware and software development. Unlike certain others, they don't rely on Google or some 3rd party developers to provide their smartphones with core services and functionalities.

If you havent noticed, Sony has to change the Clock design every year, as it knows there is a little Sammy peeker always present.
Anonymous, 03 May 2017XZs killed S8 with its weaker hardware. Because of perfect software optimisation.Sammy doesnt care about optimisation. All it cares is stuffing its touchwizz with ridiculous amount of apps to impress guilable people.
Just look up Thumbsignin app on plystore....
It exists prior than added to toucwzz...
And its the same story with every added feature app in touchwizz.
Even if copying patentd, Sammy doesnt care, earns so much on guilable, it doesnt care of being sued or not...
There is a Sammy army obviously, searchin all over the net for some poor guys( trying to earn some money) ideas to steal and incorporate into their software, as to "impress" fnboys like these, so they would come here and talk, talk, talk of the "feature and innovation greatness" of Sammys touchwizz... the most copycat UI of all.
Anonymous, 03 May 2017XZs killed S8 with its weaker hardware. Because of perfect software optimisation.Sony phones have ugly almost non-existent animations that's why they seem faster. Samsung Galaxies have sophisticated longer animations by default that's why it takes time opening apps. But that can be reduced or even turned off in the settings. XZs killed nothing. S8 runs circles over it. Even the one-year old S7 is better than the XZs.
