Poll: so, what do you think about that Xperia XZ2 Premium's looks?
Sony has just revealed its brand-new Premium line smartphone today — the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. It sports a Snapdragon 845, 6 GB of RAM, and a 5.8-inch display, which surprisingly still has the “classic” 16:9 aspect ratio, instead of going for the trendy 18:9. Of course, the Premium line is defined by its super-fine resolution and the XZ2 Premium is no exception — it has a 4K (2160 x 3840 pixels) resolution.

Aside from the aspect ratio, the XZ2 Premium does adopt a lot of the design language and aspects of the newer Sony phones. It's got that arched back with a fingerprint scanner placed right in the middle of it, it has the Dynamic Vibration System, which uses haptic feedback to rattle the phone and accentuate low tones. It also has a fairly thick-looking body, keeping in line with the design language of the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact.

A new feature for the Sony flagship phones is the dual camera. That weirdly placed module back there holds an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor, which work in tandem to supposedly achieve great night-time photo and video capture. Of course, we'll be putting that to the test.

Anyway, we respect Sony for doing its own thing here, but it's tough to deny that the Xperia XZ2 Premium is certainly an odd cookie.

We thought we'd ask you: what do you think about the way it looks?

What do you think about the XZ2 Premium's looks?

I don't... think I want to be seen holding that
I suppose it'll be fine once I get used to it
Looks great to me!

I like that Sony is really trying to push things forward. I hope the device is as good as Sony promotes it. This is especially important for the camera.

This is a 4k display. The only OEM to make one. Besides this 4k display (3840x2160) is 5.8", and with no cutout. Plus this 4k display is suppose to be HDR. This should make VR apps look more life like.

@sgodsell Too bad. It only supports random VR apps. Not like those found on samsung VR or the daydream VR.

but wider screen also improve VR experience since they can show more contents on each sides I'm not really on the notch train but at least that's how other OEMs are making the difference, and improving for Sony, I know they're also trying to make a difference, but it's not going help them financially, and when the money runs out, you all know what will happen

To each their own. Amoled displays strain my eyes less than lcd, probably due to the absence of backlight.

it's alright but Godamn that's a fatty. Makes not having a headphone jack even more insulting

The dual centered cameras look better than the stupid dual cameras on the iPhone.

Yep, they had better design from this one imo

You're not alone. I still love the XZ1 designs. Omnibalance screams industrial to me.

Why bring back the fat bezels without a headphone jack :( they should've have given the XZ2 Compact the single Motion Eye Camera and low res front facing camera, the XZ2 the dual camera and unveiled it now then wait and prepare a 4K UHD+ phone for second half of the year to at least make it look like they're not falling behind competitors.

If only they make it thinner, and 18:9 ratio screen, really i think they just use same last year leftover 4K panel.

The looks are dissapointing, huge bezels. I just need a small phone with more screen. Kudos for finally upgrading to 6GB ram.

One step forward, two steps back. Glad they finally went with 6GB. The specs are indeed impressive..industry leading even, but then they took away the 3.5mm jack, went back to 16:9 aspect, thick bezels, and fatter than it has any reason to be. I understand that design is subjective so I won't say much on that, but I am personally really disappointed with the new redesign. Gone are the days that I was excited for a new Sony phone. I was hoping the new redesign would mean new life and renewed focus on their mobile industry, but this new gen left me very disappointed in Sony.
