This selfie is awesome even flagship can't compete. Sony already listen comsumer improve the camera algorithm and Gsmarena review prove that.
Not a surprise tho. I've owned a pair of sony phones before and played with a variety more and not a single one from the z3 to the z5 to even the newer ones impressed me with their stills. It seems sony just can't get the software processing right and last I checked with my own z3c they purposefully disabled raw image capture which might have been able to save it. I don't know if that changed now but by default sonys phones have always been below average in terms of image quality.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2018DxO Mark : Trust or Not.I trust them. They show the images they use for scoring and mark things they consider to score. The only lies they can do is to use images from other smartphones, but I don't find that to be true so far. My findings are more or less in-line with their judgement.

The same team that develops the image sensors or the smartphone team that develops the phone, where current case is the latter, where they don't seem to have enough ability to maximize the sensor capability. They have another team working on the real cameras as well, should they be invited or something? It's really confusing in a world of dependency hell.

Samsung tv division is embracing lcd but the phone division is all about oled
this is really weird an ironic as their real cameras are among the best in the world if not the best and loved by pro photographers, i don't get it that they don't care about their smartphone cameras, i mean they could if they want to it just seems as if they don't care enough
zillion, 06 Jul 2018Unbelievable, I thought all sony smartphones has a good camera from mid end,.
This is the reason DxOmark chosen the XA Ultra for camera test out, it let trolls have reason on trolling.
Love the Community, 05 Jul 2018I know. Sony makes the camera modules but their own camera algorithms suck. Can't believe I ha... moreI mean proper cameras. Sony is a photocentric company, unlike Google and Apple who don't make cameras. Sony even makes compact cameras using the same tiny sensors found in smartphones.

While Sony software manage to digging the ability of snapdragon very well, you can see youtube many flagships defeat by Sony in performance reviews.

Since when did Sony ever optimize the capabilities of it's own sensors for their phones?
How many times can you repeat Sony dies Sony mobile division closes and other lies? Sony won't die so soon. Wait and speak if you can.
Love the Community, 05 Jul 2018That last statement though. Whatever Google and Samsung are doing, they're in a step to a righ... moreI agree. We can't expect average consumers to care about white balance, dynamic range ect on such a granular level. They want the photo to look amazing for sharing and printing purposes. So manufacturers have to make a choice.
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2018Yes, I hear Sony is already shutting down operations in Africa, Turkey and Middle East. I bet ... moreThey still can survive if they keep selling their phones in china, india, and indonesia.
But i doubt anyone in those countries would spend money to buy xperia. Too much competition in those countries, not only from big brands like apple samsung and huawei, but also from smaller brands like xiaomi oppo vivo etc, and dont forget about Nokia.
1. Sony is major lens provider for most smartphone makers
2. Using sony lens other phones can produce great pictures
3. But sony cameras have worst pic quality when they can control the hardware and software for camera modules in their phones.
And people still looking for reasons why sony is not doing well .. lol
