Cant b... moreI wont say all the revs were biased because I saw some videos & multitasking on this phone was bad compared to other phones like s7, iphone etc. Apps woud relaunch instead of just reloading on screen from memory. Marshmallow was not implemented properly on it. With nougat this problem is solved I guess.
I actually blame sony for it. they focused the X completely. did not put enough efforts in this phone, released it late in june with no marketing too. Now I am afraid the same will happen to XZs because sony is focused on XZ premium.

Such as lower than normal volume, bad battery life, stupid dedicated camera button, overheating/shutdowns on max video recording settings, ridiculously placed/awkward fingerprint reader, extremely slow boot up, Sony bloatware with constant popup notifications that can't be unistalled, failed Android 7 updates, bad warranty/service, extremely limited world wide service centres, no international warranty outside country of purchase, etc etc.
Tann Hauser, 20 Mar 2017I will.
Tho I hope you realize Samsung got nothing to do with the SoC except pay up for use ... moreActually, your wrong. All the testing, and total manufacturing process of Qualcomm Snapdragon cpu is done by Samsung. At Samsungs factorys and electronics and machinery departments. Including all required materials/chemicals and the total manufacturing of Snapdragon cpu's.
The design process is solely done by Qualcomm.
Qualcomm have just extended their decade-long strategic foundry collaboration with Samsung to continue this development and testing and manufacture of Qualcomm Snapdragon cpu's.
Samsung were the first in the industry to enter mass production of 10nm FinFET technology, as used in the new SD835 chipset.

Cant believe how bias revs are.
First had to install 8 automatic updates, along with nougat too.
That 8 updates in 8 months time since released.... kudos to Sony.
Batterylife 5 to 7 hr SoT. Indeed all day heavy use for me. And no fear of battery degradation.
Sound and volume superb. Really dont know how these revs conclude its too low. Tho back vibrates when speakers on high volume tho. And no radio tho.
Headphone sound. I really cant stress how good a difference that automatic headset adapt and dsee hx make., even onn the cheapest Sony headphones I got with it...and its louuud.
Camera. Both excellent, both having stead+iam stabilisation now. Main cam all the goodies of XZs. Here and there having lens flare problems. No overheating at all. Recorded 4k over open camera app. Manual does indeed do wonders in low light.
Gaming performance along with stereo front sound.... Unmatched.
Indeed cant stress how good this device is.
Only when you indeed start using these devices you notice how revs are full of cr*p
Its a good phone with preety decent design. 424ppi is fine for me since I don't have Super natural Eyes. Have a pair of front firing speakers which aren't that loud But they sound amazing. And since its a 1080p display with 4 gigs of ram the performance will be good for sure.I do find the camera on this slightly a gimmick and would have loved it if it simply would have made it for better low light clicking with good details and less noise.
So overall the only cons are
1.speakers Won't be that Loud
2. Camera might be a bit noisy as usual or might lack details.
The rest suits very well for what a flagship smartphone should be like.
To all those saying it has Micro usb, it doesn't have one. It's USB-C, but it only adheres to USB 2.0 spec.
This phone is what the XZ shoud have been. Even now with the launch approaching soon, Sony has barely marketed it. I fear it is going to end up like Xperia X performance.
Why Sony didn't make the XZ or XZs compatible with CDMA?
The modem certainly can do that easily. I can't use those now on my Verizon plan... and I really want to ditch my Moto.
LLJY, 14 Mar 2017It won't work, the 835 is very limited in stock and Samsung and sony have already taken up the... moreYeah, qualcomm should talk to mediatek to use its facilities to produce snapdragons now. Ditch that Samsung nonsense already.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 16 Mar 2017Probably not. The Xperia XZs is packing a Snapdragon 820 instead of a Snapdragon 821. The Snap... moreOverclocked same SoC only means less energy efficiency and more heat production. I really see no benefit from sd821 per se in performance, you gain some you lose some....but all in all equally beneficial.
Price wise its the same cost.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2017I am sure this XZS must better than LG G6 even they have same cpu.Probably not. The Xperia XZs is packing a Snapdragon 820 instead of a Snapdragon 821. The Snapdragon 821 is clocked at a higher speed for the upper cores, hence the G6 may be faster. But Sony have very good optimization, so maybe it can be faster than the LG G6
