Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

Did you pre-order your Xperia XZ Premium? Nope, I received my first prototype unit a few month ago and have used it for verification and quality work. I have not been allowed to use it outside of the office until recently.

 

In what country do you live? Sweden

 

What was your previous phone? For personal use, Xperia X and Xperia Z5.

 

What do you like most about your new phone? The display is awesome and the phone is fast. I love playing mobile games on this thing. 

 

Occasionally we contact end-users for the purpose of product development. Would this be of interest to you? It's cool to see so many users show interest in this! Slightly smiling Face

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

An android user since my Nokia n900 maemo was destroyed by carphone warehouse a while back. I've had the Desire HD, Sensation, One M7 and prior to my new XZP the One M9. Loved the one series and was extremely tempted to get the U11.

 

1. Did you pre-order your Xperia XZ Premium?

Yes i did via CPW as an upgrade. got my phone on 2nd June 2017

2. In what country do you live?

UK

3. What was your previous phone? 

See above but last one was HTC One M9

4. What do you like most about your new phone?

I like the look especially and the feel. The glass effect is impessive which sold me more than the U11. 

5. Occasionally we contact end-users for the purpose of product development. Would this be of interest to you?

Sure. why not

6. Any features you weren't so pleased with?

I'm not a fan of the headphones manufactures are currently rolling out. 

The ones that look like umbrellas on the end that you shove into your ears. I can never use them as they come straight back out!! I would've preferred ones like MDR-E820 which are in the ear headphones, like the ones Sony supplied with the old PSP (i still use them!) so the ones out of the XZP box are still in the box or probably going to one of my kids!

 

The other thing i would've liked to see was a bigger sized SD slot. Compared with the U11 which has up to 2TB!! The xp is only 256. Some would say that's more than adequate, but if you're away on holiday and you're making videos, especially in 4K, you'll find that SD card will be full very quickly. The HTC One M9 could record in 4k and one 6 minute clip was around 1.5gb in size. HTC's recordings stopped at 6 minutes. i haven't actually tried recording past 6 minutes as i was just messing around with slow mo. But perhaps on your next model, you consider catching up on storage size.

 

The battery doesn't last a full day if you are bashing games like the insanely battery draining clash of clans. I've also recently downloaded marvels contest of champions and the other battery draining game is defence zone 3. Warning...these games are VERY addictive and you'll find you're charging your phone at least twice daily to keep up!

 

Almost done!! The sound is considerably lower than my outgoing phone HTC One M9. I use poweramp and i had to turn my volume and amp on the app to max to get to hear it loud. On the HTC i was too scared to turn it 3/4 of the way up because it was so loud. If you could do something in an update to increase volume output, that would be fab!

 

Lastly, only 1 live wallpaper. The other wallpapers aren't so nice so i'm resigned to sticking with the one that the phone starts with.

Hi @Blackbagz

Just to clarify this point..

Consider the HTC U11 maximum SD as a bit of sneaky advertising...

2TB is the maximum theoretical SD size for current technology, so is supported.

256gb is the maximum available size. Which is why Sony advertise this figure.

what I meant is, there was a version of Xperia Home (i.e. the launcher) that would show Google Now cards on one of the homescreens. like, you know how you can scroll the homescreens to the left and right? one of those screens would be Google Now feed. it's just that I'm not sure if that version is on XZ Premium.

Yeah i get you. I do apreciate it's not a HTC and uses Sense. Would love to see something similar but i'm just one dude. Light BulbSmiling Face with Sunglasses

btw, if you use Nova Launcher, you can do the same thing with Google Now as of today's beta http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/06/14/exclusive-nova-launcher-finally-gets-google-now-integration-...
