There are so many weaknesses that i can sink my teeth into on the XZs, average(at best) battery life, poor screen colour reproduction, less than steller photo corner sharpness, poor camera location...should be in the middle...not in the corner, only single LED flash, 960fps for only 1/16th of a second is a joke, no OIS...It's funny how they would try retaliate by either posting external links (which are not relevant here cause my comments are based on gsma articles) or by picking any other random brand a bashing it, not having a clue what brands i support ;)
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2017Low light improvement comes with f1.7 or 1.8.. Not 2.0Yes. But when I see the photos compared to the Google Pixel in low-light situations the photos looked like Xperia XZ. I was expecting a impressive shootout and it almost looks the same as previous
sony messes up the software processing on their mobile cameras yet again making it 5 years in a row.
Sony is still with the bold/old marketing strategy. Wth your new flagship smartphone with 5.2 inch screen and put 2900mah small battery capacity?! for flagship smartphone sony must put the screen size up to 5.5 to 6.0 inches,not 2014/2015 display size and small battery capacity! its 2017 already and with that specs, it's really really unacceptable for that price! (except for the camera part). That's why sony is forgotten by many people day by day because they dont follow or hear what people/customers really needed and wants like bigger battery capacity 4200mah above and screen size 5.5 inch above),or maybe, they just dont cares what most sony wannabe wants in their latest flagship at all. All sony cares is just they're too focus to their camera segment,which is good,but at the same time they're didn't focus at their screen display and battery segment,which is 1 of the most important part for every smartphones that all of us looking at.

I really dont mind f2.0 even for lowlight, just look at huaweis f2.2 lowlight results.
It only boils down to managing a bit with manual to get best results in lowlight, I am not keen to trade in daylight photo quality for a bit of lowlight camera managment nuisance, as I mostly do shoot photos in good light.
Not sure why people are complaining on Sony about this. Thus is Sony at its best, it is what they have been doing for decades in consumer electronics, putting one or two new things on the same product and release it as the new version. And it is working as Sony has decided to focus one specific customer segment, their fans.
Tann Hauser, 08 Apr 2017Alas, for 3200 ISO auto shots, they are impressive yes. How much better detailed and less ... moreHow much better it would be with f1.7 ... Details and sharpness aside, I will choose sony for its best colors. Did see comparison of sony, dslr and other flagship on nbcheck, only sony managed to catch similar colors, and that was old flagship, this looks better, even 4K video is less foggy. With others having less Mp than my old phone now - 9Mp in wide, sonys 17Mp picture feels like real thing.
When the noise is eliminated by heavy noise reduction, people say it's overly processed and lacks detail.
When the noise is present while maintaning high amount of detail, people say it's too grainy.
oppps, 08 Apr 2017Lol.. you call this a phone in 2017? Please.. this is crap.. the bezels are even larger than w... more1. Then how do you call the LG G6? U Ultra? Phones of 2017 too? With the G6's mid range cameras and U Ultra's pathetic prices for their mid packed performer? Why do you care about bezels too much? The world is never gonna end with bezels, and they are there to protect the screen from drops and to lay your hands on when using the phone. If you care about looks only, I'd rather have an all-screen phone instead, not this overhyped small bezel phones
2. I don't see those two having less bezels because the HTC 10 has as big bezels as the XZ, while the XZ is packing a larger front sensor compared to the 10. And the Motorola phones never had those large camera sensors inside, hence why they managed to pack a slightly smaller bezels. Nothing could be prettier than a phone that looks just as a phone it is.
If you don't know what distortions I'm talking about, then let me tell you to your brain that those dual curved edge screens will be fully utilized by every content and the content will distort badly by slipping out of the normal viewing angle of the screen. But I do get that you love watching videos in 180° angle.
3. "Sony is like just another chinese brand, but in reality they have better performance, stock android, and even better camera.. Xiaomi, hauwei, vivo, oppo, oneplus, every one have better devices than sony flagships.. they even sell more."
That has to be one of the lamest statement I have ever heard in my entire existence. Sony phones look nowhere as like any other phone, but you're very high. Da hell is that statement of Chinese phones having better performance, camera, and stock Android?
Look at Oppo's OS - true definition of stock android lol
3T's performance is due to the faster memory, yet the 2017 G6 with same hardware and even less RAM can destroy this garbage any day, and so will Sony. BENCHMARKS AREN'T EVERYTHING.
For best cameras, ask DxOMark about it. The only best Chinese phone camera is the P10 with a score of 85, and as far as I know, XZ scored 87 in the same test - it's higher, so it's obviously better.
but samsung is something different than everyone else
4. "but samsung is something different than everyone else"
Right, because they're the only brand that sells bombs for a flagship price lol
5. "the curved screen is unique. "
Yep it's unique. Try putting a screen protector on it. And I'll give you a thousand dollar if that phone survives a concrete side drop.
6. "Prospecting buyers should have a choice.. and I guess they chose the so called distorted curved display..In 2015 and 2016, the curved versions of their flagships sold as much as 4-5 times than the normal version.. which clearly is the reason for the complete omisson of flat displays in galaxy s8 series.. "
Of course they have a lot of sheeps, what do you expect?
7. "you are on fire with jealousy"
I'm on fire of jealousy? Isn't Samsung asking Sony for their camera sensors and batteries? Is that the reason why Samsung felt a huge eagerness to have the Z5's camera sensor to be on their S7 series? Well, people like you only likes to view the negatives of Sony and positives of Samsung, so that's what we call a "no brainer" since you literally have no brain at all lol
8. "sale that sony on olx, and save some money so that you can buy sammy .. its better, and you know it.."
No need to suggest me those trash. I don't need them. Just because my favorite phone is better, doesn't mean you'll forcefully ask me to switch to a sober. No thanks, keep that bomb on yourself.
vrvly, 08 Apr 2017gsma says its noisy, but its finally not that bad that it destroys picture, so for ex. if you ... moreAlas, for 3200 ISO auto shots, they are impressive yes.
How much better detailed and less grainy could they be at about 200 ISO indeed.

See link below from tech buzz.
And doesnt come close in daylight shots.
At 960 fps, your per frame shutter speed is around 1/960th of a second... EVEN DSLR's have problem shooting this high in damply lit conditions.
Had they chosen a f /1.8 or f/1.7 aperture or even better, Sony could've got a little help with light for this, this slow motion technique, as well as overall night photography...
But I'm sure Samsung and LG must be watching this phone with a raised eyebrow.... if you know what I mean.
gsma says its noisy, but its finally not that bad that it destroys picture, so for ex. if you look at sky, it looks like sky. Me impressed.
