looks like it deserve all the high praise as long as it live up to advertised. Hope XZ1P will capture HDR10+ 4K video, and screen will support HDR10+ and DV HDR as well with 12bit color and also offer 1080p 120Hz UI. Next version of Snapdragon should be capable of all of these.

@XJ oh man.. lucky. sounds like you will be the first of us to get it. If clove gets their stock in on the 22nd, then I should get mine that week. That's what I'm hoping for! Would be great to have it for the holiday weekend here in the states. Still haven't heard from Clove yet though... which concerns me a bit.

have you picked out a case or screen protection yet?

btw thanks Musa for the link. i've seen them. I want full body though. something for the front and the back. I need to do some research next week.

@moogoo I'm getting these for protection. A decent tempered glass screen protector and a clear hard case as I want to show off the colour of the phone.

@XJ - i was thinking of the same but I am concerned the screen protector won't stay on with the case around it. with my XZ i had a full screen protector and a soft gel case. the screen protector was constantly popping off and collecting dust under it to the point where it no longer adhered to the screen. i ended up tossing it cause it just wouldn't stay on. i might end up getting a clear case and roll the dice with the screen. as long as the case has a raised lip around the screen area, it should help keep it from getting damaged..

Well, you gotta make sure to get those "case friendly" protectors, which are no full coverage. They leave a little space for the case.

mnx - as far as i know they don't make screen protectors made specifically for cases like that. they have the standard screen sized ones that will leave a large gap. no thanks! i think i'll just end up getting a hard case and going naked with the screen...

XJ - let me know how your screen protector stays on with the case when you eventually get them.

ALSO..

recombu review - now in video form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HrHUWZDUPM


ALSO .. this is CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE. All the reviews with their BULLSHIT "no content available to enjoy the 4k HDR screen"

https://www.amazon.com/gp/hel[....]/display.html?nodeId=201648150

Amazon clearly lists XZP as a SUPPORTED 4K HDR device.

Just heard from someone semi-insider of Sony that supply of Japanese version of XZP (obviously NTT docomo version) will "extremely tight" and hard to obtain for at least for a month after end of June release.

And for this reason, the pre-order may be delayed until mid June.

He didn't tell me the reason behind it but I'm guessing it's because of well-known S835 shortage.

Not sure how it will be other countries, but be ready

Good for them because I was already scaring them the last time I read the XA1 review from them. They were never that biased on the days of Sony Ericsson.



Wow. What a change of heart. I guess they did notice the huge amount of people liking the phone.

it is a fairly decent review and for the most part, they seem to like it.

the things they nitpicked on were a bit strange but whatever.

it's funny how S8 does so well in benchmarks but can barely hold it's own against XZs in speed tests doing real world tasks

I am surprised that GSMArena actually seem to be enjoying the Xperia XZ Premium.
The camera hold its ground compared to the other competitors.

I have been comparing photos taken by the XZ Premium, Galaxy S8, P10, G6.
In my opinion the G6 wins in terms of clarity and details but seems to suffer from somewhat muted colors just like the P10, which falls behind the rest of the packs. The XZ Premium exhibits most moire of the bunch but offers the most eye-pleasing colors in your shots. The Galaxy S8 has well saturated colors too but falls behind the G6 and the XZ Premium in details.

That 4K IPS LCD Display is guzzling the battery life, 72h for a phone with just a 5.5inch Display and no Always On Display , yikes


Hopefully the replacement model at IFA will bring a larger battery.

Whoever ends up getting this, here, it will be great to see the type of Screen On Time you get without Stamina Mode, it would be interesting to see if it manages 6-7hours SOT without actually having to turn on a power saving mode.

Wow, Great battery life for such a tiny battery phone with REAL 4K display.

Unlike samsung's pentile matrix fake display where QHD resolution is equal to FHD RGB display in terms of sharpness XZP's RGB stripe real 4K display is sure is amazing. I'm surprised that ZXP is able to put that kind of battery number with real 4K display whereas samsung keep producing fake QHD+ display where each pixel lacks a single subpixel. It'll take atleast 2 years before Samsung will be able to put a RGB stripe 4K display whereas Sony did it in 2015. LOL.

I bet even if samsung put 4K display it'll be again a pentile stripe. Waiting for the day when samsung able to put a real RGB stripe amoled display without the red tint issues. ( Sorry if my post is a bit technical about display tech, some laggy brain samsung fanboy may not be able to understand what I'm implying
