Not true ! It's supper easy to get great shots ...just use auto mode on 8mp for lowlight and max resolution for daylight shots , and one more thing , make sure that phone is steady , don't add unnecessary shakes using dedicated camera button but use software camera button instead .

How much more do you need? All reputable companies have even less (other than s7)!
Great phone! Would like to purchase one but my Z5 is still going strong.
Great device. Not mainstream glass metal cover design. Durable , stable with light UI. Battery is much better than s7 Snapdragon( just as a reminder for review junkies). Benchmark. Loool. Real life experience is important. Only Sony users know that. Yes we are minority and I like it period
I am surprised at the performance numbers. But we will see the real time performance when people get their hands on the phone.
this mobile phone is really is a flagship, I really wanna try SONY mobile but disappoint me looking at the screen. the edge to edge the big space there that you can see. I don't really like it. if they can remove that I'd probably buy one.. just sayin'

That's the problem. In sony phones you have to toggle many settings to get the pic right which is not suitable for basic phone camera users.
Sony's software also does not cover all bases properly. For example, the panorama feature is mostly ignored & as a result almost embarrassing compared to other apps. HDR feature also does not produce as much color range as in other camera apps.
I have a Z3Compact & using 2 other 3rd party camera apps, I get a lot better results compared to the Xperia Camera app.
My Xperia z3 compact has the option to record 4K. Is this means my device is coming from the future?
Gsmarena, in the article you expressed that the additional camera sensors are not doing much job. Besides, all previous Xperia only shows the lens & led flash. Why don't you do the photo test one more time but this time do it with all those extra sensors closed. I'm curious to see the result
"It's the best Sony smartphone ever".... and yet it's a subpar smartphone at the same time. Atrocious photo quality, poor panoramas, 5-axiz is a fail, narrow fov high res video (come on!), no radio, no tv-out, screen not accurate, poor performance compared to other similarly powered phones...

At the same time, the people who criticize the XZ for having a FHD display, have no issues with using the 750p display in the iPhone 7. It's call BIAS. Every single review online is biased.
I would say that s7 edge is the best of 2016, it's battery life is just amazing!

I have'nt seen a photo shootout here for a very long time.Let petitioned one?Am eager to see how 2016 flags hold its own in a blund comparison... Shall we?
GSM Arena since when was 1080p on a 5.2 inch screen not good enough?? A 1080p screen looks perfectly fine and even on my TV. You cannot see the pixels what's the big deal?? QHD just kills battery life end of
lol, yesterday people and """sony hater""" reviewers couldn't see any deference between the 4k screen of z5p and FHD of z5, i do remember these videos " look, this is a 4k screen and this FHD, do you see any deference? NO" now they are criticising sony of using FHD instead of QHD lol.
overall, sony you are the best, keep up the work at least for me :),cheers.

Poor battery? Dude you high?
XZ performs better than HTC 10, LG G5, P9, etc. In terms of battery life.

Just last year they there was a blind test conducted by GSMA. Z5 v S6 vs the iPhone 6S. Guess what, at the end Z5 won.
If conduct a blind test of all the top flagship phone cameras, XZ would definitely come first.
