[deleted post]They said it was a PREVIEW of the unit cause it was not a final unit yet.
Iam just wandering, why GSM arena and some other websites are in a hurry to review a pre unit which has incomplete software. Reviews should be done exculisevly for the retail units where everything is complete and finalized. Now people may get a bad impression about the camera performance and some other aspects about the phone. Yes, they informed us that the unit is not finalized, but always the first impressions remains in the memory and cant be wiped easily.
Guys check out YouTube for new video capture by XZ, stabilization and quality is great for rear and front camera
It would be interesting to see if it can outperform the HTC 10 in photography and video.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2016No way moto G3 can have a better camera.
Did you watch the video from PA, comparing the video... moreThanks for your your replying,
But a little common sense would helped you answering it better , I am saying that it's better for photos not for videos as Sony make the best video recordings with its 5 axis video stablizing , more balancing colors , wide dynamic range and less noise espicially in 4K .
Innosaint, 13 Sep 2016Really! when Sony's stabilization is more stable than any over praised ois gimmick what else d... moreNot this isn't "hating", is me being honest.
SteadyShot shot is arguably the best video stabilization out there, no contest, that's why I call it "sobrenatural". How Sony can do this without cropping half the frame is beyond anyone imagination.
This with 3-axis, 5-axis certainly will help a bit during macros, but this improvement change anything? No, what Xperia cameras need is better optics because it seems that G Lens don't have the resolution that the sensor demands, or perhaps cheating changing to a narrower field of view, to say the last. Without optical stabilization they Sony is at a glaring disadvantage, and there's no reason for it. Sony is one of the leads on photography marketing, they can't fabricate a mobile camera module with stabilization? With better aperture? They don't want? Why can't Sony lead the innovative and instead keep running behind the competition? Even OPPO has already a functional module with sensor stabilization.
I'm nothing hating Sony, I'm just asking them to stop fooling around and get serious!
Since everyone wants to play the bezel game, I decided to take a bunch of the stock images directly from GSMarena and compare the bezels of a few 5.2" display phones.
this is the Sony XZ, Samsung C5, LG Nexus 5x, and Huawei Honor 8 and their claimed vertical height. First off, the bezels on all of these are so close that people complaining about Sony's "huge bezels" are being ridiculous. Second, some of the manufacturer's claimed device height seems inconsistent with a direct photo comparison (for example, the 5X's claimed 147mm looking shorter than both Samsung and Sony's 146mm, or Samsung 145.9mm being definitely more than 0.1mm shorter than Sony's). So for everyone basing their judgments on some online photos which seem inaccurate to real world measurements (possibly due to camera focal length, angle, whatever), try to hold the thing in your hand in real life first and compare side by side.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2016Why USB 2.0....USB 3 takes up an extortionate chip area if compared to USB 2.0. That's why Qualcomm only supports USB 2.0. USB 3 just isn't worth it for how often it is used.
Once again a very bad and dissapointing phone from sony. What difference between xperia xz and xperia z5?? They both have the same design, the same display and the same camera. The xz and z5 camera have a same aprature. They only can save noisy image.Sony used 3 gig rams in Z2 and using the same 3 gig rams in xz after 3 years. Are they insane?? Today using a full hd display in a top smarthphone is like a joke. Sony do nothing!!!!!!!!

so even when it's water proof, if by any chance it damages the phone it (most likely) will be out of warrant, that's why they advice not to submerge, the IP rating still have a few things to really sort of before it's completely safe (and even then...)
have a nice day ^_^
