My past phone was a Pixel 2. Well, I can't even compare it to a Pixel phone camera. XZ1C camera is slow, lack details. Slow motion video is useless unless shot in very well lit condition. Plus vibration motor of ALL XZ1C are defective/too strong. Don't need to take my words, just such in google or in xda.

Check YouTube if you want proof
Dynamic range is amazing, ffc wide angle is awsome too
Don't know what xz1c you used or it seems like you never used one
You People are lucky, get lot of discounts, price cut. But in India they have reduced the price till now :(
Vic, 17 May 2018Don't forget that discount applies to US models without fingerprint scanner. So I don't think ... morebought a 10/10 kit locally in 210usd just cuz it was us model
did customized uk and here i have the best battery life flagship of 2017
don't mention the demon speed it has cuz every sony flagship is smooth af
sony u used to be perfect designer . .now utter ugly designs !
For a 169 its deal for 369 its a robbery which will noone supports.
Anonymous, 17 May 2018lmao xperia doesn't support camera2 APILol man, camera2 api gets included with Android Oreo OS.
Whether the OEM likes it or not, it gets enabled anyway.
Even if it isn't, there are so many working tutorials to enable it.
Don't forget that discount applies to US models without fingerprint scanner. So I don't think it's a good deal unless you don't need a fingerprint scanner at all.

I tried Google Camera, but it can take pictures only at 8.3MP, that would be fine for me, which means less details, less sharpness. I'll try Gcam and also XZ2's apk if available.
Anonymous, 16 May 2018nobody use xperia in usSo, who's being missed out?
Sony, who can still make money by selling their phones elsewhere, or those people who aren't getting the product they're worth paying for?

Both instances they tried to pin the blame on my friends, despite no outside physical damage. They had to file FTC reports to get a proper resolution.

Google camera's so good, it can turn the crappiest camera phones (i.e. OnePlus 5T, Nokia 8, Mi Mix 2/2s, etc.) Into a competent shooter with flagship grade quality.
Anonymous, 16 May 2018better to buy smsg or iphn. their customer services are much much better than sony's. you buy ... moreCause those phones need it.
Xperias are built with precise quality that requires absolutely no service support for the long run.
And in case you are wondering how that quality is, the old Xperia Z from 2012 is just as durable as most modern day flagship phones, with glass sandwich and IP rating, heck even has dual front-facing stereo speakers too!
Battery life is AMAZING. Camera is awful, frustrating & straight out garbage sometimes. Yeah other than the "Camera", its a great phone. Galaxy S7's camera is better than this, trust me! I'm bought it because of its size and great battery. Today, I left house for work with 49%, came home after 9 hours with 33%!! Last weekend, I left home to go somewhere with 100% drove for more than 2 hours, while using the phone for navigation and came back home with 70%! Battery is that good!

For that low price, you get a slightly smaller screen, almost identical day-to-day performance, superior battery life and of course, a 3.5mm Jack!
Perfect deal to me!
