Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

Hi Guys, I am now a proud owner of an Xperia ZX Premium Blue Marine. I did not pre-order it. Used to live in Europe, I moved now to Singapore since a while, which is however the place where I have always purchased my "Top" Xperia (exceptd for the previous one) due to the dual SIM feature not available in Europe. Previously "equipped" with a Sony Xperia X Performance (bouht in HK), I appreciate now from the XZ Premium the battery, the display and the processor. However, I find the pictures done by the X Performance (23Mp) a bit better than those done with the XZ Premium (19 Mp). You could contact me for the purpose of product development.  Best regards Luigi

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

Ok after coming back to my Samsung Note 3 after around a week of use of Xperia XZ Premium, the music on my XZ Premium is like 2 levels lower than my Note 3. So it still means the audio is still weak.

I'm using a 1More Triple Driver IEM to listen to music in lossless format. Is there something wrong here? I do acknowledge though that the sound did improve from the patch. However it seems to be not enough. Is this an issue with the hardware?

Can you please suggest me a way to find out if my xz premium is genuine or not. I purchased it on 20th of June this year.

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

I was really happy when I first got the phone, but now, after weeks of dropping wifi, weird bugs and a complete lack of interest from Sony, I can say this is the worst phone I have ever owned. I hate it. For anyone considering a Sony device, please don't buy it. COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

I don't know why the wifi issue hasn't been properly addressed yet.

I bought this phone more than a week ago and it seems that the on going 5Ghz Wifi issue persists. I'm actually scared of my purchase now as it seems that support here is pretty bad.

So far I've been using my data instead of being able to utilize my high speed connection in my home.

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

Hello I love Sony Xperia phone.  Dropped my Xperia Z in Dec 2015.  Used cheap mobile just for phone calls until Xperia XZ Premium was released.  Missed Siri and predective text.  LOVE THE SHAPE.  The case feels great also.  Found the Sony web page hard to use to order case.
