Sony should really get rid of the huge bezels at the top and bottom. Ditch the brand name on top, we know we are using a Sony smartphone, make the screen bigger, but keep the dimensions of the device. Also the camera lens belongs in the center, so we don't place our finger in front of it while taking landscape pictures.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017yeah unstable oreo with many new bugs.
and 3d modelling is a useless gimmickBugs are yet to be reported, Oreo with if and any bugs is still more than your phone has isnt it.
Gimmicks are things that do not actually improve users experience or functionality in any way, 3D creator does add entirely new functionality of 3d rendering and printing...so no gimmick.
You just personally might not find it interesting,
as much as I dont for example 32 bit dacs in phones, as those do not improve sound quality at all, but just add extra bit of already unnecessary volume but seriously take a hit on power consumption, or dual cameras as those do not provide any more new features or functionality than single one does...
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 12 Sep 2017I just wanna laugh at the V30's so-called "P-OLED" display when it comes to black levels - ind... morehahaha, apple and sony IPS screens are manufactured by LG and P-Oled is a unique technology from LG which they use on their world's renowned and most popular OLED TVs. Time will come that Sony and Apple will use OLED screens from LG. So who is laughing now.
Thanks for the review GSM Arena but if you could be so kind as to tell us if this phone has the same camera distortion that the Xperia XZPremium is reported to have. I confess, i have an XZP, a second brand new unit actually and it shows camera distortion. I was wondering if Sony has done something in that regard.
Those complaining about the small battery before the review come out, are u salty now for the battery life? :D
L0lip0p, 12 Sep 2017Sony unified design, it follows the applied themeunified ugly design
I'm still thinking about with HTC U11. XZ1's loudspeakers improved but still average performance. U11 has 6GB ram and 128gb. XZ1 and U11 has usb 3.1 but compact not (please confirm). Metal body is better than glass. I'm used HTC touch 2,HD2,onex,m7,m9 before, and sony z2. My dad has z3+ and have g-sensor / software slowdown issues. Now im on S7edge, its too much loaded. Only 3 hours of SoT after 1 year. Curved screen useless and feels sensetive.
Drickz, 12 Sep 2017People said apple is lazy with their design but Sony bring it to a new levelWell, if they change their design and end up looking like other phones, people would say copying!!! Sometimes the same old design may be the best design...
Just great stuff.
That batterylife from a 2700 maH is impressive...
Cant wait for Oreo on my X Perform. :-)
Sound and Cameras and its feats superb as always too.
I m really glad they re sticking with f2.0, noticed I cant quite catch the shadows in lowlight with wider aperture cameras it doesnt give enough exposure control on - levels, the shots are brighter, but just not as color punchy and impressive as these ones, and just no depth feel to them.
I dont mind having to hold the camera somewhat more steady for brighter and more detailed pictures in manual with 1/4 or 1/2 shutter speeds, as long as I can lower exposure to catch the night.
I guess they could go for some f1.8 max for better automode ISO and shutter control, so people wouldnt complain about loss of detail, but I m affraid it would take a serious hit on depth and minus exposure control even in manual.
3d creator is great. :-)
AnonD-566182, 12 Sep 2017compact review when?Oh the battery life of that thing!
If xz1 hits 80h, imagine the compact!
AnonD-682242, 12 Sep 2017Huh. I thought Oreo will come with white notification shade by default :/Sony unified design, it follows the applied theme
Huh. I thought Oreo will come with white notification shade by default :/
Now imagine they decided to put 3000 mAh or more on the battery.
I just wanna laugh at the V30's so-called "P-OLED" display when it comes to black levels - indeed those are the black levels of an OLED screen LOL.
On a more serious note, if there are two that can make excellent IPS LCD screens, they are Apple and Sony and no other than those two.
XtremE16, 12 Sep 20172700 mah battery test amazing.. They criticized the 2700mAh battery being too small, but they can now suck some piece of a$$.
