Not a fan of the new design... it now looks like every other phone on the market (and very 'cheap plastic' from the back)... I used to get Sony phones for the unique design and features, but there is no point in getting this.
Nah... I'm waiting for the xz2 premium because I have the xz premium a fhd screen looks like a downgrade and I think it's a lot smaller.

MikeU, 19 Mar 2018What are the reasons for so many comments when Sony phones are discussed?Because some people pretend not to like Sony phones but deep down they are intrigued by the quality of Sony phones!! Lol...lol...Sony phones will always be the BEST!!

So, if sony makes profit from selling camera sensors, its sony semiconductor who makes profit, not sony mobile. So if it makes great camera sensors, its sony semiconductor that has innovation.
Sony semiconductor provide/sells their BEST sensor for sony mobile exclusively, sells its older sensors to almost all smartphone vendors. So, sony mobile gets the best sensors but they dont do anything, while othets get older sensors, but they modify it, make it bigger apperture, dual set up, add ois, and make better software. Now you guess yourself why with the best sensors their camera never the best..
MikeU, 19 Mar 2018What are the reasons for so many comments when Sony phones are discussed?Other brands fans, they aren't happy Sony is offering better than their beloved brands, isn't weird?
Why xperia cameras are so bad? I know sony can do it better but why they can't? No OIS and small aparture leads to bad low light shots even for 2014 standard. Even in broad daylight, there are too much noise and sometimes colors are pale and washout. Sony should include a good DSLR in gift package of XZ2. Only then, some people who can endure ugly fragile design and lack of 3.5mm port will buy.

AnonD-481725, 17 Mar 2018Why definitely? As who you are saying this? How much you been in Camera industry? As customers who are knowledgeable about camera technology, it is clear that Sony could have done even better in the camera department. Other companies are using OIS and larger apertures. What is holding Sony back? Cost cutting? Trying to maximise their profits?
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2018OIS has been overrated most of the time, it does't shot well for a slightly bigger hand shake.Nope. It is not overrated. And if your hands are shaking so much that OIS can't compensate for it, maybe you need to brush up your photo taking technique.
