Have anyone tried to compare the photo taken by Xperia Z with S3?

The photos captured by 13MP Xperia Z is less sharp and lack detail comparing to S3.

Will Sony fix this issue?

U trolls are so dumb with ur remarks yet still talk proudly of Samdung when most of their phones experience much of the same thing. Trust that Sony will sort this issue out ASAP to shut u trolls up.

Nowadays people simply can't accept the fact that a 0.05% manufacturing/designing/whatever fault is within the QC limit.

What's the fuss about it? Not like other phones are 100% problem free.

Another issue with the Xperia Z is the pre-assembled screen protector. The screen protector degrades the actual screen quality.

Some say that the sudden death occurs when the phone hears the phrase "Samsung Galaxy S4" and users that tried to type in their browser the same three words had the exact same problem, be careful Sony fans some of your manufacturer fears just found their way to your phones.Just kiddin!!! Its a common thing for Sony to sabotage their own devices. Its a shame for those who spend a fortune to buy it and as always the first and the breaviest are the ones who get scr***d. Well done Sony when it comes to tradition you are a hell of a keeper

Lol, if it happens, it happens. Like the article said, it happened to some users, not all. Not sure if all Sony users are this stupid
