Poll: so, what do you think about that Xperia XZ2 Premium's looks?

Poll: so, what do you think about that Xperia XZ2 Premium?
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?

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!
