I bought one two weeks ago for $599 at Bestbuy and now they want $699.
And with the 4K screen it is in a class all by itself and I already know the new Samsungs have better low light shooting and might do some comparison videos myself.
I am an advertiser. I film, take photos and videos. It's not possible to carry my Cinema Camera, Multi Lens DSLR, and Drones 24 hours. Certainly I cannot carry my huge Workstation capable of making Transformers. But I need to catch some unpredictable moments or casual shots. I needed a Professional Mobile device to support me to do that. Many of you might not know that only Sony has a Professional Branch among Sony, Samsung, Apple,LG. This means when they make their small devices, they keep their professional users in their mind, at least a little bit. I found Sony small devices always capable to work with professionals in their pro platform. But other devices might fail in many cases. Apple in this regards, sucks. I don't know how to open a huge AVI raw file to open in an apple device. But it's very easy on android, with that if the device is strong to back you up, you can have a professional mobile media device.
Galaxy s8 is a garbage phone I literally traded it in yesterday for the xz. I've been with Sony for along time bought into the hype with Samsung and ended up massively disappointed. Sony is still king.
I hate people nowadays, you know you are not interested on this phone, so don't watch it, don't comment shit when you know you're not gonna buy it, I miss unbox and review video from 2011 to 2013, only people who interested watch the video or for recommendations
i am a samsung fan asual. i have using a good protective cover in back with protecting surroundings edges of phone. just didn't put any tampered glass cover in screen. just buying after 2 weeks fall it from my hand not even very high. its about from your side pocket in pants to ground.
so its fall and my screen crack in middle but it spread like spider from one side to another side.
my point is its a unfortunate but not expect that much fragile.
my previous S7 (no edge) i used for 1 years and drop may be more than 50 times from bad distance nothing happen only difference was i put tempered glass on S7 wht i didn't put in S8.
i don't know who i blame to?
but now thinking to move for SONY XPERIA XZ PREMIUM.
What's special about the XZ Premium?
- 2013 looks with big bezels and sharp edges
- A display with a lower than average contrast ratio (about 900:1), not even sRGB color gamut and a higher resolution you'll never notice (not if you don't use VR)
- A camera which does a great job doing aquarelle paintings
