This is not so true,xzs a better,even my z5p are better than my friend ip7,and he even admit it,even on youtube and other site show xzs is very good ij camera,only gsm is different
I have Xperia Z2 which is a 3 years old phone. It takes great photos in manual mode as I have to admit that the auto mode push the ISO very high unnecessarily. So I go to manual mode and fix the ISO on 100 or 200 which gives much better photos that can match new mobiles. Sadly the camera software don't have the option to change the shutter speed.
I believe this is the only way to get good photos with Sony mobiles
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2017You obviously don't get the point....let me help you...with this review is shows how pathetic ... moreThe problem is that people use the camera incorrectly then quickly assumes it's the worst. Best cameras always work best in Manual. Take DSLRs and mirrorless cameras for instance, where do they work better? Manual or Auto?
Same thing, all you need to do is to go to Manual Mode, keep everything in Auto, then take a picture. Bam, better processed photos. Sure, Sony's Auto doesn't do that good, but once you get used to it, you'll never go back. Looking at the 1s Shutter Samples, those images are highly detailed with plenty of clarity and controlled amount of noise

You know, a simple update could easily make the XZs even better in low light because there's the hardware, just needs further optimization. Pixel, on the other hand, no matter how good the algorithms to process images, will never beat a better hardware sensor. You can't cheat physics
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2017In dxomark yes but in reality uhmmm no.it can't even beat p9,s7 and G5 and best camera goes to pixelP9 was super slow at taking photos. Photos look good, but nothing impressive. It doesn't live up to my expectation
S7 is rather a camera for the spoiled majority. Overly brightened photos that lack detail when you zoom in. Less noise, but weak detail preservation, no thanks.
G5 is rather as much as the P9 - good, but nothing impressive. Zoom in and you'll see the lack of detail and poor noise reduction.
Pixel is good, better than most, but again, 12mp simply cannot overdone a pure 23mp shooter. You can't cheat physics.
XZ is already there. Artifacts just needs a fix, and a simple update could fix it. X Performance is already on par with the S7 and HTC 10, there's just no way the successor would do worse with the additional hardware. New hardware always needs time to improve. Look at the P10 Plus's new Summilux Lens doing worse than P10's Summarit Lens

-Because a good battery is now determined by mAh count. Now I understand why the XZs's 2,900mAh battery got an endurance rating of 73h and the G6'd 3,300mAh battery got an endurance rating of 72h.
"Lowest performance because of close to no caching"
-Are you trolling or something? How do you explain this?
"Big untuly bezels make big devices with small screens"
-Which is why they're safer than small bezel phones when dropping them. Good luck salvaging your Infinity Display when you drop it sideways.
Yet you aren't mentioning great things like Qnovo Adaptive Charging, Hi-Res Audio, LDAC, DNC, DSEE HX, Bravia X-Reality Engine, STAMINA Modes, Dedicated Camera Shutter Key, Super Slow 960fps Video Recordinh, SteadyShot / 5-axis EIS, Side FP Scanner, Most Stable Android OS, and the great features of the OS including Album, Walkman Music, and Video Gallery, as well as the fun and useful features like Sketch.
I seriously doubt this is more of a hate than justification

Even if you were to win in the camera department it loses everywhere else.

Are you guys really this dumb or what? Look what GSMArena themselves said about the camera in this very article!
What the heck is wrong with you guys I don't get!! The samples are AWFUL and people simply need to open their eyes and process that through brain. And yeah report my factual comment obviously. I realise now why people don't even consider Sony nowadays, well hardcore fanboys do, and that's why they are still alive.
With xperia i need a tripod to shoot similar or better results which i can get from competitors. What were you thinking sony mobile? Add a freaking OIS already, reduce the mp to 12mp, widen the aperture to 1.7 or less, add a second lens, improve your crappy image processing, make your auto mode reliable, etc. and then we'll talk. You won't buy me with your colors - your overall results and especially low light results are crap not to mention your lousy auto mode. No reliable auto mode = no buy. Simple as that. And all that is just for the camera itself. That are other probs with xperia xzs and xzp as well for that matter.

Not sure about the phone, but the location is nice.
What is this place?

XperiaI, 12 Apr 2017The lowlight shot from the iphone 7 still looks better??..and the camera sensor are supply by ... moreYes, camera sensor is supplied by sony but sony's camera software is full of bugs. Everyone knows sony has worst camera of ALL smartphones. Even $150 phone can better than sony in taking pictures.
Only geeks care about DxOMark scores etc. The only things that matter for most consumers are:
1. Fast camera start-up and photo capture
2. Ease of UI and taking of good pictures
3. Clarity of pictures
4. Good low light performance
That's why Sony still lags behind the iPhone, Samsung and the Pixel. Consumers don't give a damn about fiddling with settings to get a great photo. Plus it's slow to capture photos. Sony might make great sensors but its own camera software is poorly designed.
