5 things that would've made the Sony Xperia XZ Premium a better phone

Sony has just announced its second 4K smartphone — the Xperia XZ Premium — and it is as shiny and as powerful as expected. Melding top-of-the-line hardware with the Z series' industrial design has given us a powerful jewel of a smartphone, which is capable of pushing a 2160 x 3840 pixel resolution at all times, instead of only when watching pictures and video.

Call it nitpicking, or call it a reasonable wishlist, we found 5 things that rub us the wrong way about the XZ Premium... or, well, a lack of 5 things. Check out our list below, feel free to add to it via the comments section.
