Someone Else, 11 Aug 2018Stock(ish) OS vs Samsung Experience. Not a fair comparison ... moreMajor updates like these aren't just about adding features, but also optimizations.
And if you still want to talk about features, take a look at each manufacturer's features, stock is missing a lot of them, for example LDAC that has been for years on Sony phones and came out recently on all Oreo phones.

Whackcar, 11 Aug 2018Meanwhile Samsung promises Android 9.0 Update till Summer 2... moreInsecurity much? Why bring up Samsung here? In the very first comment?

Shanti Dope, 11 Aug 2018Like I've said, it's always Android who does it better. An... moreYes, we have seen how you insist on that Samsung release the better code to "Android" while using the worse code on their own devices. Brilliant business strategy!

However, we don't know yet tho for original XZ, XZs and XA1 Plus at the moment, Sony probably will notify us again when they're done updating those six first.

Lossses... poor display... poor grainy camera even in flagships... corner softness... useless slo mo... mediocre sprks... geta tooo hot... not long before sony shuts their smarphone business

When is so shutting their smartphone business?? Why dont they do it fast before billions are lost...?

Duck of death, 11 Aug 2018Look up who's the biggest contributor to Android and you'll... moreLike I've said, it's always Android who does it better.
And I never said anything about Samsung's contribution, rather it's not always Samsung who contributes.

Anyway you can continue bragging about those achievements while I continue to watch Google and Sony to make Samsung features to work better.
Heck, they can't even make a good portrait mode software for single cameras! S9 takes mediocre portrait shots at best, and it needs the S9+'s dual camera just to do it right.

There the news we need. Kudos.

Why not Xperia XZs in this list? Because it's 2017 flagship and Sony promised All Flagship r gets 2 years update... Any chance for Sony Xperia XZs ?

Geric.770, 11 Aug 2018It's was called Multi Window on Android KitKat Galaxy phone... moreSo true! One thing I would like to see Sony or Google to implement is secure folder thing. This is the biggest feature I miss on my XZ Premium there is just no ability to add any sort of password protection to apps or install a second copy of an app with which runs in a secure self contained environment this is useful if you let your friends or family handle your phone and you don't want them to touch your personal files, emails or messages.
Look up dual app and secure folder feature if you don't know what I'm talking about. Xd
