Anonymous, 01 Oct 2016Most unbiased reviewers do claim XZ has one of the best image stabilization in a phone camera.... moreThank you for clarifying. And yes, I do recall reading somewhere (slips my mind where) that Sony's native stabilisation - forgot what it's called, sorry, Image Steady perhaps? - is better than OIS.
Need to read-up again on these stabilisation techniques.
[deleted post]Most unbiased reviewers do claim XZ has one of the best image stabilization in a phone camera. Even though it's not OIS, it still has hardware assisted stabilization.
[deleted post]Which site exactly? None I've seen say that. And Sony's own website doesn't say they have ois.
They have image stabilisation on the software side, but they don't have a physical ois mechanism.

If the rumored XZ in pink edition comes true, what you said is incorrect.
i am a big fan of your Xperia since the ZL i had one and was one of the best android i ever had, however your design which is very appealing to me i have to say it target a specific kind of people "specially men" i can't see kim kardashian type of girls holding the your great ZX !
i don't know maybe it's the rectangle shape of your design there is a lot of people don't like the symmetry in shapes overall , the Xperia X was a step toward a wider market in the design language , anyway it's my own opinion. i which you best of luck and please some
smaller blazes will be great no need for dual speaker.
Market share shrinking even more after this. Shame man. What a blunder.
Something for best photography with sony fones from my experience:
1.Superiour auto is good for taking fast pictures if there is time use manual mode.
2.for night and low light use 8mp instead full resolution.
3.If there is time use manual mode . in manual mode there is not necessary to toggle all settings just play with iso. Use lowest iso as you can. with lowest iso there isn't any noise. for daylight 50//100 for night 200//400 .
4.Don't worry about use lowest resolutions like 8mp because in this resolution camera use its 20/23 megapixel complietly but with downscaling with pixel-blending method(not delete 2 of three pixel on the matrix) .
5.A bad thing about superiour auto is that use the high iso values that not needed in many cases and cause noise . Even in manual mode if you set iso on auto then auto mode use high values for iso that just make some noise.
excellent phone .. there is no any cons about this phone all parts are good but just one thing .. lack of ois .. it is not very important because on phones with this they don't get great results but it would be better if sony use this option.

That's why I said that it is not very impressive on paper. But we will see what happens in real world use.

Look up the antenna tech and engineering solutions for it, and why.i understand now.
