Tann Hauser, 29 Jul 2016It is their policy, they test every camera on 8 mpx automode, so the dx software can better me... moreHmm ok.
Well they could've done better it sounds like, but at least they didn't trash the camera like some of these mindless soulless losers who don't know sh*t about reviewing cameras do. lol
So did you get an XP yet? If so, what u think of it? If not, are you going to?

But yes, there is no approval of higher mpx camera value/advantage by any points in their scoring.
That is a mistake on their behalf....
They measure pixel factors when giving score, yet do not value higher number of those same pixels for any score....
There is no match for X Performance in same percentage cropped picture quality(except some lumias), yet that fact is not awarded by any points. :-/
lol............ yeah only cuz they cost-cut. They need to grow some BALLS and advertise MUCH more here in the U.S.............billboards, TV ads, etc. Release phones via the carriers again, once a year not this idiotic twice a year release schedule BS, release the phones on time EVERY TIME, etc. But I guess this is still good news, though they could be doing SO much more!
I want to say about these 2 companies Samsung and Xperia are best but I don't like Samsung becoz lag a more bit, and the Sony I would say is the number one first company why. Becoz the audio, camera, video and etc. But u guys know already the fan famous promote. From the Japan hatsune miku promote the Xperia z and A, Michael Jackson is T2 ultra, and lastly z5 premium is Jay chou. When I listen song has some more awesome, it has nonstop playing a little time, it will continued playing changing song no stop a little time. And has some Hi-Res, playing ps4 games, man. That's why I love Sony, Sony is my favourite phone.
From Dxomark XP review:
"Converted to an 8 Mpix default mode JPEG, the high-resolution 23Mp sensor ensures well-defined edge detail, although very fine detail is lost in some areas."
WTF?! Are you telling me that in Superior Auto mode the Xperia phones are STILL defaulting to the lowest resolution while using the highest resolution sensor?? So Dxomark's results are based on them NOT simply switching to 20 or 23 MPX from default 8 MPX in Superior Auto?! Tann & Team....what gives?!
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2016Get a clues mate, your reasoning is nonsense. Please stops fibbing and making ups stories. You even reply to Avan DR's comments? Everyone knows he is a troll, you can find him in every Sony related post, trolling Sony.
Don't waste your time feeding trolls like him.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2016this phone get 88 score from dxomark camera reviewer.. excellentIm rather dissapointed with that score of only 88 tho....they do not account for mpx in their score.
But every crop on X with 23mpx is better quality than any other phone with 12/13/16/ 21 mpx, due to higher mpx exactly, and that fact is not evaluated as a factor in their score, and it should be, as pixelpeeping became a standard fot photo quality evaluation nowadays....

Anonymous, 28 Jul 2016this phone get 88 score from dxomark camera reviewer.. excellent
It makes me laugh that they also gave the S7 and the HTC 10 the SAME score. Take it from someone who's owned ALL 3 PHONES......... the XP is the BEST of the 3. The 10's pics aren't as detailed as the XP's, and the S7's aren't as color accurate as the XP's. So I'm sorry, either give the other 2 lower scores, or make the XP's higher. lol
This site tells the truth as well with regards to my statement above:
X Performance camera have been finally tested and ranked with 88 points for overall score and both photo and video score :
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2016All people buy iCrap or Lagsung. Why? Why you buy only that craps? For popularity? For brand? ... moreActually I buy it because of hardware, of good offers and etc.
I have bought s6 instead of Shperia5 because better battery, better camera, same performance, better looking edges :) PRICE . I don't choose depending of the brand name, I choose best buy at that moment.
PS. in our country Sony never provided good deals, sales or anything. I bought Samsung edge+ 20 percent cheaper than shperia at that moment.
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2016Looks like you're fascinated by Sony dude ;-)Or he/she is Samsung fan and just trolling.
[deleted post]BS. The video is just a dirty sony's trick to gain more popularity.
Sony already lose power to fight korean and chinese products. Spreading a dirty video is the only way to gain more popularity. Lol. poor sony.
RockStar2005, 26 Jul 2016 Right on Anonymous! Lagsung. lolYes:) Sony is super. You pay for quality not for popularity.
Avan Dr, 26 Jul 2016You know what the reason behind no fingerprint in US? planning exit US, china and india market... moreYeah I'd read before it was really b/c they didn't want to pay the extra money for the patent. All it does is leave a bad taste in people's mouths. You can't claim to be the best but then withhold something as important (and popular) as a fingerprint sensor from your customers. If Sony Mobile (and Sony's CEO) had more balls 3-4 years ago, by now, they'd be in a MUCH different situation with regards to how well the Xperia line sells. They wouldn't need to think about cost-cutting BS. You see Samsung or even HTC cost-cutting on US releases?? Nope. They have better sense than that.
Exactly man. They lost their nerve, and now we're ALL suffering because of it. Of course, I'll just keep buying int'l Xperia models I guess, so as long as they're available AND work with the major US carriers, it'll be fine. But maybe Sony Mobile should strive for something MORE?!
