Again with the oddly cool response to what is, if it is anything like the XZP, a brilliant camera.
No, it's not as good as some in low light. Sure, okay. But in good light the XZP kicks all sorts of ass and I wouldn't return to the crappy over-processed mess of a Samsung after using it.
Look at GSM's own charts, here: check it against the Note 8. I did. The good light chart is far superior on the XZ1 - a tonne more detail and much better balanced contrast and colour. It's not even close.
But I suppose if night time shooting is your thing and you've not got steady enough hands for the manual mode (which outputs superb results at the 1/2 second exposure) then you're going to be down on it. Personally, I'll take the little extra work at night as a trade off for the far better results during the day. Every time.

Don't listen them. I've not listened them and bought Sony instead of Samsung. I'm very happy for that.
I've been a sony user for so long that I don't undrestand where all the hate is coming from the other users(if they are using it at all that is), sure it has a few short comings here and there but the overall experience with sony have kept me with them.
Wow... so thanks to Oreo and 10nm process, it can turn 2700 mAh almost on par with Z3's 3100 mAh in endurance rating.
I hope they can save more juice on Xperia X as well with their upcoming Oreo update!

And is just another good example of why some of their devices have been skimping on battery size. And S835 is no excuse.

I found my stereo speakers consume quite a lot battery when on max...almost double per hr if 10 or more db louder.
The reasons are logical if you look behind simply the tech.
For ex, Sony phones are only ones that provide 0.35 V output on headphone jack, rest do it with 0.7 V and above, but those consume much more energy while music listening....
it doesnt mean Sonys amplifier tech is weaker on headphones, it just means it is optimised differently and requires lower impedance headphones to keep same volume levels as others for that 0.35 V output, having in mind battery drain during music listening.
Sony does the optimization under the hood for lower power consumption and signal to noise ratio, but doesnt explain it.
So revs test volume with standardized headphone, and of course Sonys max volume out of 0.35 V is lower than others 0.7 V.
They do it differently purposely, but dont care to explain, and revs dont care to mention that Xperias indeed provide best volume with low impedance headphones, that Sony indeed produces.
Of course other phones would provide even too much volume with lower impedance headphones, but with high noise which is not so good on ears.
Sony should provide the option to change the Output voltage tho, so that user has a choice on that, due to constant volume debates going on here.

The older generation always needs add on extra protection example tempered glass, but now the Gorilla Glass 4 and 5 already adapted in Xperia, so the trolls shouldn't be trolling.

Those are people... moreSo essentially, the thinkers buy Sony, the rest buy Samsung or Apple....right?
Ahh Tann, for someone who would never 'debate the hipster kids' you don't half share their simplistic world view. You know, I dare say there are people even smarter than you like to think you are who buy Apple products, they may even have different reasons for doing so.....
Just food for thought though eh. Anyway, seems to me that Sony are as much a mainstream electronics brand as Apple or Samsung. Sure their market share in the mobile space ain't as big, but they are still a household name, Were someone really interested in bucking a trend, well they'd likely make a far better statement of it by buying something like an Essential phone....
