Replacement to my galaxy s7 found.... camera alone makes me to buy it
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016Oh noes, the contrast ratio still can't beat the Xperia Z1 even it was released way back in 20... moreUh...Z1 uses tft while Z2,3,5,X Performance, and Xz all uses high quality lcd, so the contrast ratio of the Z1 can not outperform the later series.
pt020, 13 Sep 2016Will have it on the 26th... my problem is the color,blue or silver?Platinum (Silver) is the most beautiful and attractive/eye-catching of them all.
Where is the audio quality and sound loudness and ear speaker volume quality
I think it's a great phone overall. And when it comes to the sample images, I honestly would have to disagree w/ the word "high" image noise. There could be some, but based on a closer inspection, I didn't find plenty of it. But since it's not the final firmware, it's better to wait for the final one.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016The corners are too sharp = very uncomfortable bad design, typical Sony!Just bad for you, but perfect for many people.
It's a pity there's no FM radio 📻 in that premium device Sony XZ
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016Yeah, I agree! Every phone designed like a brick are going to be unpleasant to hold in a hand.... moreI've never figured out how consumers complain about corners when no one holds their phone that way at all. People hold their phones like how they hold a book. Portrait orientation and bottom bezel held SMH
pt020, 13 Sep 2016Will have it on the 26th... my problem is the color,blue or silver?Oh my friend I have the same problem. It's been two weeks and I still can't decide between those two.I am leaning towards the platinum but I will wait for some unboxings to have a closer look.Lighting conditions weren't the best at IFA.
AnonD-404798, 13 Sep 2016from official SONY website '' SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode (5-axis stablization) '... moreWhat you posted is just a summarization for customers, like the specs list here in GSMArena. Now look at Sony Mobile Blog when they in fact explain what they mean in the description.
About the 5-axis stabilization the description says this:
"Now with 5-axis stabilization you can shoot smoother videos[iii] even when walking or capturing extreme close-ups[iv]."
And what the footnotes mean:
"[iii] 5-axis stabilization feature is only available in Full HD video resolution
[iv] 5-axis stabilization is activated only when the camera recognizes macro video. Other situations will be recorded as 3-axis(pitch/yaw/roll) only"
Only in video with 3-axis, only a very specific scenario uses 5-axis, and no word about it being physical.
WTF are you doing Sony removing FM Radio and MHL? Who do you think you are, crApple? Please DO NOT copy crApple.

No, is not.

it's 5-axis and best stabilization you can find now in the phone , now get lost troll .
"the Xperia XZ is the world's first smartphone with 5-axis image stabilization."
No, is not.
When you look on official Sony websites that describe the camera they are very clear, in the footnotes, in stating that this camera has DIGITAL/SOFTWARE stabilization using the information provided by the gyroscope, when filming, and ONLY in 3-axis. It's only in the very specific situation where the camera understand that you are trying a micro-shot of something that the camera adds the extra 2-axis information.
So, its all a marketing stunt, like "triplet sensor".
AnonD-56158, 12 Sep 2016Sony should price this the same or cheaper than the Samsung S7. But i don't think that will ha... moreit is actually priced the same or slightly cheaper than S7 ...but I don't see a reason for a lower price than that .
Finally worthy upgrade over my Z2! I hope camera software will be optimized and sound will be louder in headphones. Lossless audio will be also welcomed.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016The corners are too sharp = very uncomfortable bad design, typical Sony!Yeah, I agree! Every phone designed like a brick are going to be unpleasant to hold in a hand. I guess some people do like the square form, but I'm certainly not one of them and it's nice to be able have a comfortable grip.
So their camera STILL has the usual Sony-type of oversharpening and artefacts... Unbelievable! Will they ever learn? I'm also betting that it produces a clean, but VERY low-volume audio output result when they test it on the final review... Because who would learn from their past mistakes, right? Sigh. Next year this happens all over again and again, and again.
