I knew it Sony ... moreThe brand new IMX400 19MP Motion Eye camera sensor even though it is the step down in the resolution from the IMX300 23MP it have a boost in the number of pixels, hence it helps to sharpen the image more even if they lower down the MP. U should know that battery life is based on how often u use right? If u don't use it that much I wouldn't see a problem with the battery life. I got a XPERIA XZ and yes it have smaller battery, I started switching on the smartphone at 7am and used moderately till 9pm, it left 23% (I did play some games for some period of time). Their smartphone ain't ugly to be honest, yeah yeah I know some hated the bezels, but it gave people a impression of a solid smartphone. Their price is counted good already, around GALAXY S8's price. I wouldn't complain for that kind of price even though it is kind of expensive, since it is the same as GALAXY S8.

Screen is great, adaptable resolution
Perfomance speed is the best, no lag
Battery life is great
Photo quality daylight and dusk is great, low light is good but it uses manual and tripot is the best, i have no issue or i cant see them
No overheating, no explode
4k recording with no limition duration and no over heating
It has super slowmotion 960fps
It has EIS for video resolution back and front, it is very stable maybe the best
The internet is the fastest
I like the bezel, i can hold it free while i play a game not at the screen, when it drop to the ground, the bezel sometime save the screen
Design is depend on your taste

Xperia XZ premium phones with bad camera lenses can be exchanged for production units with better lenses or Sony can voluntarily recall them. Moustache distortion in a camera lens is really difficult to correct in post-processing. You will need to copy affected photos to a PC with photoediting software that can correct for the specific signature of the lens distortion since android apps if there are any, are not able to correct for complex moustache distortions. The good thing about this distortion though is that it won't be very noticeable unless your subject has lots of straight lines/edges (example: architecture, frames, paintings, things having regular geometric figures). Sony can release a software update so that the moustache lens distortion can be corrected in camera. However, it may create distortion problems in units with good lenses/lower distortions so I doubt releasing a software update is what Sony will do. I suggest to just return or have the phone replaced if it is affected especially since XZP is quite expensive.

Even there is a slightly distortion it is normal for wide angle lens. Why you want to trolling just like you having the distortion issue?
19MP why Sony? XZ Premium is a bulky phone in the hand with less battery life? I knew it Sony doesn't care about the design all about taking our hard earned $$$
Lukas333, 27 Jul 2017This is normal? You're kidding http://static.xperiablog.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Xper... moreI did see this picture somewhere from multiple people pretending that this picture is taken by their xz premium, lol.
Tann Hauser, 27 Jul 2017Great, you followed first step.YOUR unit has an issue with the lens.
Now follow second step, ... moreThe thing is people who've returned their phones for replacements have experienced the exact same fault, sometimes with multiple replacement handsets. None of this would be an issue IF Sony acknowledge the fault but they're not.
I am starting to think this is a hardware issue with the lens because if people like yourself are saying they're not seeing this fault then that means there must be good and bad batches in the wild.
That could potentially be good news for users as if they swap out enough units they'll eventually get a good one.

That's some great logic there
Not even did GSMarena say it in their review. Mind you trolley?
I think my user name is really for people like you :D
Lukas333, 27 Jul 2017You do not see the problem? This is my keyboard picture. http://forum.android.com.pl/upload... moreFairly common happen on most wider angle camera when take closer to the image. If you still have questions please direct contact Sony for summit your suggestions like made a feature to eliminate the distortion when wider angle camera capture image closer to the image in software update.
I like this XZ Premium, like I like almost all sony and sony-ericsson phone and planned to buy this. but I have a really big question before.
IS SONY STILL USING FREE LICENCED DEFAULT APP ON THEIR FLAGSHIP PHONE?
Because it's really annoying, with a price that is so expensive but they only give me junk default app wich full of junk ads and I'm not allowed to uninstall them without rooting the smartphone.

FYI, this slightly distortion is normal and fairly common, it is not an issue!
Most of the wider angle camera must have slightly distortion on the frame edge but it wouldn't affect the whole picture taken. Example, you take group selfie, the image captured people stand near the frame edge will show little bit bigger face and people looks fatter, will you mind it? If yes than you can not use any selfie photography, don't tell me you don't take any selfie in your whole life. When you capture a blueprint most of the wider angle camera will have same results, will you capture blueprint mostly for your whole life? it is very slightly distortion on frame edge not a disaster, it is normal in camera industry.
I am not using this one (i am using the Sony xperia XA1) because is too expensive but i have seen this one in local stores .Simply is an amazing phone just SONY!
