Look at Apple and Samsung, they don't have the best Sony sensors but their software is way better and faster.

the issue lies in software, meaning they can probably fix any issue with camera that is not seen in competition if we complain enough

Sony has improved on all fronts with the latest flagship.
Dont make compact phone taller. Reduce the height of the phone. Please. Its hard to use with one hand.

There is an 8mp mode I use in low light, does better than the se in manual 8mp with hdr imo.
They should lower the megapixel count to like 12mp but keep the same sensor size. Also, they should add OIS to complement EIS. EIS is better for video but OIS better for photos. They should fix the software too for faster photo capture and camera startup times. Those are the thing that keep Sony from being popular with a lot of users.

unfortunately I think the XZ1 is a no for me cause I see it has a 19MP sensor, I've never liked the results from sony's 19/20/23MP sensors and wish I could just get a noise free ~10MP image out of them saving file size space, making time snap and save image quicker and making something actually worthy of being inked at the recommended max print size for that MP resolution

Peteraven, 08 Aug 2017How much is the expect price? In euros please. Z5c was Â€549/£429/$499.

Cmon sony make a good compact phone and dominate the compact market! the only rivals are iphone se and a3 2017!

I'm interested in the materials choice.
