Now that the dust has kind of settled, we went back to the showroom floor during Mobile World Congress 2017 to check out more of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. Read more: https://goo.gl/DxGIOB

just bought the phone and...recording things that are going at a costant high speed makes xperia's slowmo really satissfing and easy to use for everyone but getting good at picking the right timing on a lighter for example that lights up ITS SO HARD ahahah
I am excited for this. Been looking for a camera this good and that can record at very high FPS. However. the phone if horrible, it look very ugly with that mirror finish. It's a case-only phone to me, if I ever get to buy one.
That is really nice but does it cause the phone to start to overheat like the other Xperias did when shooting 4K (the ones that could)? I remember hearing about that issue with the Xperia Z2 and similar devices. The XZ does seem to be a really excellent device. I have an Xperia X with a 23 MP camera right now and it does some of the best photos I have ever seen. I thought the 20.7 MP was also pretty good that they had in the Xperias before the Z5 series. I typically wait a while until phones such as the Xperia XZ fall out of the stratosphere pricewise and get them on eBay. I only had ONE issue with eBay and that was someone sent me an Xperia Z instead of X by mistake. I guess the one who wrote the listing got the wrong message. I had no problem getting the seller to take it back and refund my payment. I guess he/she knew they had to do something or eBay would side with me and refund me and maybe even let me keep it. I just packaged it back the way it was since I still had the box and packaging and waited for the message to print the label.
Looks good, sounds good, good scenarios to try it out......but actual real life usage? i honestly cant see the usage of this apart from many concerts or when you travel, even then it's more like a couple of usage then meh......
Sony is a master of innovation actually but their smartphones are not attractive enough when compare to Samsung's and Apple's
for example Samsung's S8 and Apple's iPhone 8 will come up with these attractive features while XZ Premiun doesn't has
-Futuristic Edge to Edge Amoled display (while Sony still stuck with its bulky bezels design)
-Crazy fast and Powerful SoC (Exynos 8895 and A11 chip beat Snapdragon 853 like crazy)
-Face scanner for unlock the phone and about mobile payment (Sony XZ Premium doesn't has this tech , sony doesn't has its own mobile payment platform like Samsung Pay and Apple Pay actually)
-Iris scanner (Sony doesn't even care about this at all)
- S8 camera comes with Super slow motion video recording 1000 fps ( surpasses 960 fps of Sony XZ Premium camera)
I want Sony to bring more attractive innovations to their flagship phones becus when S8 and iPhone 8 comes out no one will care about XZ Premium at all becus overall XZ Premium is not attractive enough compare to S8 and iPhone 8 and in the end Samsung and Apple will left Sony behind as always 😕
So Sony made according to them the best slow motion camera function but forget to use the already working system from Xperia Z2 where you can edit the recorded video immediately after recording...:D hmm but why?
It's a beautiful design. It's just that I prefer a smaller form factor and so it would be more attractive for me if the upper and lower bezels were %50 smaller, for example. But they do have other versions like that so it's all good.
I don't want the new Sony flagship. I want that STACKED SENSOR in midrange devices and flagships by the end of the year! Chop chop. Time is of the essence. AR/MR is coming to sweep everything up. I assume we are in agreement my fellow super-YouTubers.
For those complaining about those bezels.. It looks like you guys haven't used a phone with front facing speakers. Those bezels are because of front facing speakers. I am ok with that bezels if I am getting front facing stereo speakers... It is 100 times better than bottom firing speakers...
