NokiaBeast, 08 Apr 2017First, no phone is crappy because everyone is unique at their own ways. XZs low light quality ... moreNot true, they are not as good in automode settings, cause it uses max mpx with 3200 ISO, but by just adjusting LE level lower and using software shutter, even in auto you get superb resluts,
just two steps, at max mpx lower shutter and higher LE... gets you better results than any S8.
And it stays preset that way, just swipe to manual and shoot wonderful lowlight photos.
Look up tech buzz link below.
Tann Hauser, 08 Apr 2017Nope, in US XZs costs 700 and S8 985 dollars without contract. You are mixing providers offe... morewhat are you saying man??,, I am talking about unlocked prices.. and yes samsung is little bit costly right now, because its on pre order, and comes with a 150$ gear VR, and wireless charging dock.. but with launch you exclude that and buy that for 750$.. its pretty close to 720$ for the new XZ.. and it comes with snapdragon 820, whereas s8 have the latest
oppps, 08 Apr 2017if i am high, then you must be drunk... dude s6 had 1.9 aperture , wheres this pathetic polyca... moreDude, if you're serious about that, then we can say that the Pixel phones have one of the worst cameras for having only f2.0 lens. Of course you won't agree, right? S6 with f1.9 never matches the Z5 if you know how to use Manual Mode and use proper settings. I gave the XZ an enough try at S. Auto 20mp in artificial lighting condition with written texts and compared it against the S7 Edge with the same settings (Auto 12mp) and guess what, XZ has a hell lot more detail pulled out despite the tiny bits of grain. S7 Edge already destroyed the S6, and there's just no way the XZs would be wrecked by the S6. Give it a try first, even the Note 5 can't compare to the XZs anymore
oppps, 08 Apr 2017every country is not the same... In Asia and US, this crappy osny costs as much as Samsung S8,... moreNope, in US XZs costs 700 and S8 985 dollars without contract. You are mixing providers offers and amazon international unlocked device prices... you can get S8 in US for 750 which is more than XZs 700, but under contract terms which adds 30 dollars monthly for 2 years on contract.
If this phone was on contract terms too, it would be about 500 dollars plus 30 monthly, not 750 dollars plus 30 monthly as S8 is.
oppps, 08 Apr 2017every country is not the same... In Asia and US, this crappy osny costs as much as Samsung S8,... moreFirst, no phone is crappy because everyone is unique at their own ways. XZs low light quality photos may not be as good as the S8 series, but the S8 series can never come close to the XZs's ability of Super Slow Motion 960fps video, which is 4x slower than the slowest that the S8 series can do at the samr 720p HD resolution
Second, you can never blame Sony or any other OEM for offering such high prices in your country. In the Philippines, the XZ (non-'s') costs just $100 more than the Exynos S7 Edge, and the XZs is about to be retailing for only $500 but I'm not sure about it
year old chipset, could have been 821pro for 2017, better camera sensor yet worse image processing. give this sensor to LG or Microsoft and see what they produce!!! and small battery with poor battery life. 5.2" requires a minimum 3200mAh battery on any flagship, higher is better. design is OK.

Shooting at handheld with hardware button, max res and maximum 3200 iso, provides this detail mush.
This is not cameras lowlight capability, its automode lowlight worst possible results for pixelppepers delight, although shots come out great looking 1:1.
There are loads of lowlight photos from this camera over the net already, telling a totally different story.
And as usual, worst possible ones are here.
NokiaBeast, 08 Apr 2017Uhh, at least it brought something new and groundbreaking to the table. Bixby? No thanks, we h... moreLol.. you call this a phone in 2017? Please.. this is crap.. the bezels are even larger than what it was in 2005.. hehe.. even the moto handsets have front stereo speakers, and even htc, but they have less bezel.. and distortion? whom are you kidding!! they look perfect.. 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. but samsung is something different than everyone else.. the curved screen is unique. 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.. no brainer... you are on fire with jealousy... sale that sony on olx, and save some money so that you can buy sammy .. its better, and you know it..
ssbatman21, 08 Apr 2017At the price of s8, it is a flagship.Ehh, no? In my country its cheaper than the huawei p10, and ALOT cheaper than th s8
oppps, 08 Apr 2017The low-light landscape samples are quite unimpressive - they lack detail, there is lens flare... moreSony not doing good at phone cameras is right, but the S6 with 16mp camera takes better low light photos than the XZs 19mp camera is just a huge false statement. GSMARena Photo Compare Tool proves it, I'd say S7 series has better cameras, but you must be high for claiming that the S6 does. And Xperia is not a total failure at all. Z3 was the best of them all for having the best of every department during its time. XZs is a small leap, but XZ Premium has the potential to get them back if they do a hell lot better at perfecting the camera software
No one buys Bravia? Dude, Sony's Bravia TVs are one of the most selling TVs all over the world, second but close to LG's OLED TVs. A1E OLED is their true prominent factor of stealing the crown back that they lost when Koreans started to take over with great products at a lower costs.
Tann Hauser, 08 Apr 2017I love the "S8 costs about the same" end comment.... 985$ and 700$, or 850Â€ and 700Â€ dont ... moreevery country is not the same... In Asia and US, this crappy osny costs as much as Samsung S8, the s8 plus costs more... in europe, and other continents, the samsung costs more, because they don't have a factory there
The low-light landscape samples are quite unimpressive - they lack detail, there is lens flare and the photos are nowhere near as sharp as we'd like them to be. Regardless whether we used a tripod or not, the images just didn't come out right. Despite the larger pixels, the low light photos by the Xperia XZs seem softer than those by the Xperia XZ.
SO MUCH SO FOR SONY CAMERA CAPABILITIES. even the 2 year old s6 had better night results with a 16 MP camera..
One word, xperia is a failed project , where such a good-old brand as Sony, is trying to keep it alive by profits from other divisions.. literally no one buy bravia and xperia.. Sony is good at studio, and gaming, but not hardware..
This phone looks like it came from 2005.. even the sony ericcsons had better design in 2010

Sony always makes ugly phones, boring uncomfortable rectangle with gigantic bezels!

Dual edge screens? Oh, distortions say hi to you
Iris Scanner? Cool, would be fun to see you in public use that and look like a pedo lol
User Interface is ugly? So I'm glad to know that your ugly childish DisGraceUX makes more sense because Timescape UI is all about simplicity and beauty. Too bad you don't understand it, kid
Big bezel? Right, goodluck trying to save your screen after a drop
LCD? At least they're not oversaturated and will never burn in on your heart just like the truthful facts I have told you lol
