Will Sony screw up their camera software on phone again? That is one impressive camera sensor but I seriously hope they put some effort into their software part.
Sony phone always have good camera hardware, cmi post processing . If the XZP can have similar/better camera performance than the S7, it'll be a very good phone given that it has 835 and 4K HDR display.

u want another Samsung incident?


don't fix what is not broken.
What's does battery size got to do with Samsung? The issue with Note 7 is it's bad battery design and its rushed to the market without ample testing.

You don't see China phones with big batteries exploding right?

Dual-sim for SG according to HWZ article, sound slike a hybrid card slot for anyone that care:
http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/featu...emium-mwc-2017
According to Sony, the Xperia XZ Premium phones coming to Singapore will be the dual-SIM variants in 4G/3G configuration. You can forgo having a second SIM for a MicroSD card, even though the phone already comes with UFS 3.0 internal storage rated at 64GB. The phone uses a USB Type-C socket configured with USB Gen 3.1 transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps. It will also have 4GB RAM.

I read somewhere it's due to finally front firing stereo speakers?

I really want to buy a Sony phone, but I don't want to deal with the lousy camera software. Even LG already stepped up their camera game, their recent phones like the V20 got pretty decent post processing.

Let's hope that Sony woke up already, because this phone looks like it might be a hit.

The large bezels is said to be accommodating the front speakers that's located on the top and bottom of the phone's front.

Except for the large top and bottom bezel

after looking at LG G6 and Galaxy 8S (those leaked videos), I am sold for a less bezel phones.
Bezels are the design cues of Sony, so it does not look like other android toys.

Like it or not, I think it is part of the omni-balance design so it will stay.

I was hoping this phone is a bit lighter but it's even heavier than my z5p lol
Something is more heavy, I suspect it is the all around gorilla glass on the front, back and sides.

im very intrigued by super slow motion camera - 960fps

nice to have feature. but looking at the design and features, $1,000+- would be a probably price for this phone just like Z5P.

1. too heavy
2. fingerprint magnet
3. camera software lousy (ok, this is based on past phones)

I thought this will be my replacement for my z5. looks like it's really time to move to another brand...

Don't forget about the Xperia XZs.
