Anonymous, 12 Jul 2016wrong! my friend's s5's camera was so much worse than z1I tried Xperia Z1 camera and all the photos came out blurry and grainy. Galaxy S5 photos were much sharper.
zikry, 12 Jul 2016Why so many phone maker use Sony camera but not Samsung camera ? It cuz Sony has great camera ... moreSony can make good cameras but they can't make a good software for it. Hardware is good but software is bad.
ren122, 20 Jul 2016the s7 didn't do better. It caught up a with a 2015 flagship haha. And dxomark are professions... moreWell right now is different. Even if the z5 was a 2015 flagship it was released at the end of the year. They also released the z3+ at the same time as the s6 and it did worse. Looks like Sony is the one playing catch up.
Most blind tests put the s6 ahead of the z5, and the s7 is miles better even without considering the autofocus and low light capabilities.
Grey1213, 12 Jul 2016No lol. Their cameras have always been worse. Only dxomark has it different but all blind test... morethe s7 didn't do better. It caught up a with a 2015 flagship haha. And dxomark are professionsl why should I not take into their opinion? Dude there was a blind taste on on phonenarea and the z5 came out a winner in photos. Give me a break. SOuth korea didn't have shit 30 years ago. The japanese industry has always been ahead when it came into eletronics. Samsung is simply doing catch up with sony.
and for all the funny people out there who makes jokes of Sony and its camera - iPhone and Samsung phones' has Sony sensor - the sensor technology is so advanced, all the other mobile companies depend on Sony. This is why Sony is the first company to have 23 Megapixel camera.
Grey1213, 14 Jul 2016You clearly know nothing about cameras, especially when you think its shooting 23mp. It has a ... moreAhahahhhaaah....
Priceless bull from a sony nonuser who doesnt know squat about Sony camera...
Please, do tell us more about this camera you never used
DenisXD, 13 Jul 2016What?! Yeah I've seen AND taken samples, I have a Z5.
What only 8mp are you talking about? I... moreYou clearly know nothing about cameras, especially when you think its shooting 23mp. It has a 23mp sensor, but when you take a picture it is only 8mp actually being taken, the rest is for oversampling. You could turn it to 23mp but obviously you wouldn't because it isn't optimised and it does poorly.
Just because you find it satisfactory it doesn't mean its relatively good. Most cameras are satisfactory. Z5 would only be better than the competition if they were actually better, but they aren't.
PS. Megapixels are in the millions, not thousands.
Grey1213, 13 Jul 2016Are you sure you've checked samples? Its worse, it creates artifacts like no tomorrow and ther... moreWhat?! Yeah I've seen AND taken samples, I have a Z5.
What only 8mp are you talking about? It takes up to 23mp photos, depending on the mp you set the device. At 8mp it oversamples the photo, it doesn't mean it only shot at 8mp.
8mp are 3200 pixels when 23mp photos are 5500+ pixels! Do your math Z5 and X really take 23mp photos, not 8.
As for the processing, I couldn't care less. It takes gorgeous photos and that's what I want, I don't care how it takes them. Z5 is among the best mobile shooters, deal with it.
People like you really need to check sony devices 1st before say bullshit.
DenisXD, 13 Jul 2016I disagree. Sony's software stabilisation is far better than any ois stabilisation. Just check... moreAre you sure you've checked samples? Its worse, it creates artifacts like no tomorrow and there are a lot of signs of post processing. And its a performance hog. And it only shoots 8mp.
sonyz1, 13 Jul 2016When did you buy z1 cause mine never lag it almost 3 yrs alreadySame as you, almost 3 years now.
Lag is at its worst when updating apps
Grey1213, 13 Jul 2016Yes, that's why other OEMS do a better job with their camera sensors than they do, and because... moreI disagree. Sony's software stabilisation is far better than any ois stabilisation. Just check samples, Z5's stabilisation is far ahead than any other stabilisation.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2016Go elsewhere and complain!
Wait I know... Go to shame posts and complain about leggyness, qua... moreKid if truth hurts you you have bigger issues than me. What I say is a fact, and as usual truth hurts. Sony doesn't really know what they are doing and they are confusing people. They don't state if xp is a flagship or not because obviously, it's not.
What exactly offended you from what I said?
Do something new Sony! Come on! There is nothing wrong with your phones. They just need to bring something innovative to shake Sony customers heart again. I was a Sony customer for the past 8 years. But after z5's monotony and simplicity, I moved to Lg g5 for the first time. And I don't regret it because there is nothing new about sony. I am really keen to return but until there are some differences.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2016Its note 4 your samesung fanboy. My family s6 and note 5 also lag after 4-5 months of usage. W... moreI like how you call me Samsung fanboy.
Yet i have never owned a Samsung in my life YET.
Will probably get a samsung soon.
Can stand my laggy Sony Z1. LOL
Sagittarius, 12 Jul 2016Sony's software sucks? Okay, here comes this troll again.Yes, that's why other OEMS do a better job with their camera sensors than they do, and because they skimp out on ois and use an software heavy implementation.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2016It's obvious that people who are against Sony here, most of them had never used a Sony device,... moreTrue,it's sad that they have never grabbed a hand on SONY,I'm always wondering If Sony mobile dies What phone will I buy

Anonymous, 12 Jul 2016It's obvious that people who are against Sony here, most of them had never used a Sony device,... moreMaybe (just maybe) they did used to own a Sony (mobile) device and were fed-up with the way Sony has consistently let itself go farther behind at each generation.
Nah... that couldn't possibly be true, or could it?
