L0lip0p, 01 May 2017Cool features that implemented poorly and good for first month or or so and completely forget ... moreGo watch speed video comparisons on youtube. Google Pixel is the slowest to boot and slowest to open apps among the likes of S7/S8, G6, P10 and iPhone 7 yet it is one of the most lauded smartphones of 2016. Speed doesn't matter. People care about features, fluidity, camera, battery life far more than they care about speed. All of these phones are fast. A split to one second difference in their speed doesn't matter anymore. But having a lot more features than what stock Android offers, a great camera, excellent screen and long battery life make a whole lot of difference.

Also speed doesn't really matter in buying phone is utter bullsh*t, you only say that coze' samsung lose to sony in speed, if samsung were to win you will say otherwise, double standard at its finest

Now and through years are using sony camera sensors to achieve some success, but still far behind from Sony.
mischa, 30 Apr 2017I have yet to see a S8 that has a red tinted display. That case is so rare. Like I said before... moreYes, Galaxy s8 reddish tint is everywhere, and Samsung focus on servicing because they are desperately in need of it.

A stellar camera hardware alone won't produce great image/video quality. Sony hardly develops anything software-wise that's why out of all Android OEMs, their UI is the one that's closest to stock Android. In other words, it's feature-less. You are all missing out on a lot of cool and useful features by sticking with Sony phones.

B... moreGoogle Pixel is also slower than S8 and even LG G6 in opening apps and it's stock Android. 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.

A split second d... moreAlright, so you don't care about speed tests since your Sammy phones perform poorly in them. Between the XZs and the S8, it was more than a split second difference. 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.
