Guessed right @ the phones, and I'll still stand by that there are no winners in this shootout. Even the weiner is plagued by blurry and sharpening artifacts.
I have always like this site.
But after this, my faith in them is gone.
They reviewed the phone last week, there was the same night shot of the Church. One shot auto mode, another manual.
These are completely different of the shot used for this test.
Same website, same phone, same landscape...
How can it be that different?
My old xperia C does better. With 8mp and f2.4 or f2.5
The samples of XZP x i7 plus were better too.
Even Phone Arena likes the shots...
Anonymous , 19 May 2017Xz premium has an overall score of 87 on Dxomark.Normal XZ from last year or XZ Premium?
After all those years, Sony still have worst algorithms even if they use their own hardware...
Last good camera from Sony was in Arc S, after that all phones are literally the same: tragic low light, massive noise reduction and some serious problems with anything that is green...
Nleft74, 19 May 2017I don't know why sony can't make a phone with excellent camera. Maybe if they put an OIS on it... moreSony only do good with colors rendering and autofocus, which is better than their competitors; but they don't do good in noise reduction and artifacts.

But no it doesn't, what I think you are looking at is the article for the ZX, DXO just used the word 'Premium' in the article heading, this think creating the confusion.
Anonymous , 19 May 2017Xz premium has an overall score of 87 on Dxomark.No it doesn't. That's the old Xperia XZ. The test was conducted in December 23, 2016
I don't know why sony can't make a phone with excellent camera. Maybe if they put an OIS on it the results would be different. Ironically, those cameras on the two phones were made by sony. Sony should hire someone who specializes on phone software camera in order for them to have an excellent phone package.
Anonymous , 19 May 2017Lol, I knew it. Xz premium is Clol, when fanboyism goes to life-threatening levels. xd
guren, 19 May 2017Wooo....you sam fanboyism is too damn high,we know s8 has good cam,but better than dslr is pur... moreYou mean phonearena is samsung fanboy, tho it's known as iPhone biased site, people also call it iphonearena, they did the comparison between S8, DSLR and mirror less camera and S8 beat them.
"We would have liked to include the HTC U11, but it wasn't even announced when we started work on this comparison."
Not trying to defend the atrocious image quality of these supposed XZ Premium shots, but this statement could very easily imply that this is not the XZ Premium's final build. You cannot disagree with me because both the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8 have been released on the market for at least a month. The XZ Premium STILL hasn't been released. If I were you, I'd wait till the XZ Premium is actually released to the market before watching a fair comparison.
It could also just mean that they started working on the comparison a couple of days before the 16th of May, seeing as that was the date of the U11 announcment. In which case the XZ Premium may well have a close-to-final build...
Either way I'm disappointed lol, although to be fair the actual pictures (without the ridiculous level of zoom that you'll never need to go to [A.K.A. 100%]), don't look bad on the XZ Premium.
Great work Samsung yet again!!!
But I really thought xz would give good fight.
G6 is not fare behind.
S8 is still the champ ( even from its camera department )
HTC fans who blamed me really should watch this article.lol!!
Anonymous , 19 May 2017Lol, I knew it. Xz premium is CNo. You are too eccentric.
Who zooms in that much anyways. If you don't zoom, the Xperia isn't that bad. At least it's an improvement from their past phones
Anonymous, 19 May 2017I don't ask you to use a prototypes phone, but why the Gsmarena can use it for blind test comp... moreWho said it was a prototype???
All reviewers have final retail units now that's why there has been a flood of reviews these last few days.
You may try as much as you want to avoid the facts, but this is the final XZ Premium software, Sony gave the final software units to reviewers and a go ahead to start writing and publishing reviews on it.
