Im looking for a mobile phone camera with the BEST low light shooting...Can someone help?

But at least now people will simply choose based on size rather than battery life, i.e simpler options, no downgrade/power trading should be considered.

AnonD-251354, 18 Mar 2018Do some research and and look for the thickness of the camera humpyou are wrong, lumia 1020 is 10,4mm without bump , 14.4mm with camera bump, so thickest part is around 1mm thicker than sony
gringo, 18 Mar 2018sim slot is a big big fail on all sony models ! i didn't buy from sony since my bad experienc... moreAh yes those phones sets the standard for the whole Sony lineup 5 years later. LOL!
This would have been a prefect phone if it was a bit thinner and had an all metal/glass uni-body build .
If it is plastic build it should have hot-swap-able micro-SD/SIM card (which it does not) or it should have user-replaceable battery.
I want to get one as soon as possible. Better cam, better sound and new look (OK for me) I like compact series from first generation z1 compact and this one really deserves a good compliments. It's sad not to have a headphone jack but it's OK because I'll go for Bluetooth headphones this time.
jrharbort, 17 Mar 2018Keep in mind it is only 5" because the screen grew taller, not wider. So the phone can still b... moreSaid this myself before in this website, but come on, this time I wouldn't waste my time explaining that, because people without enough tech knowledge wouldn't understand! They just look at how many inches it have!!!
Smith, 17 Mar 2018It's taller so you cannot reach the corners anymore. I'll go with S8/S9 instead.U do realize that the GALAXY S8/GALAXY S9 are way bigger and of course, taller too?
Lovely phones Sony keep going on .. Don T stop or slow down like last 2 year .You are coolest among all
Kangal, 18 Mar 2018Bad review.
The only upgrades seem to be the better quality/brightness screen, faster SoC, ... moreI don't disagree with all your points but you do seem a bit too negative or at least not quite understanding the purpose of the phone. You listed the small screen as a negative, on a compact phone that is kind of the point don't you think? It's not meant to be as large as other phones so screen size needs to come down accordingly. And to be fair when iphone upgraded from 7 to 8 and it was basically all the same stuff but with wireless charging (something that was long overdue and not everyone will use) it seems they got a free pass as well. Maybe it's partly about the overall package and not just the improvements alone? The phones are still pretty good and have some good features but it's not got anything amazingly unique (as do no phones really, even compared to iphone x my Samsung galaxy s9 has facial recognition, bezelless screen, wireless charging, stereo speakers etc. what is the justification for an iphone x price when Samsung can do the same for much cheaper and with better in-box contents like better earphones and charging wires etc.?) but as you'd expect no phone is truly unique at the moment. Even the whacky stuff like squeeze gestures in HTC is on the google pixel if I remember right.
I agree on the 3.5mm port but there is a solution to that in the box itself.
I understand there's some bits could be better but your obsession with symmetry for example, it can be nice but it sounds a bit more like ocd to care too much about that. If a phone is ugly then fair enough you might want to avoid using it for 2 years or so but I don't see the problem with asymmetry except where it's very visually distracting and not just a minor quip. Lack of OIS is a bigger problem for me but I've not tried a phone without it so can't really complain how big an effect it has.
"So, the "old" XZ1 Compact has a superb rating of 108h, while the "new" XZ2 Compact has a mediocre 88h...just great, Sony."
It has a 5.0 inch screen with full hd + resolution. What did you expect?
Hayaan Mo Sila, 18 Mar 2018None of those phones you've mentioned have:
-1/2.3" 19mp Motion Eye™ camera that can compete ... moreUse camera potruding a bit.. doesn't justify that thickness
Apple has had vibration motors in iphone 7 onwards for haptic feedback in 7 mm phone.. besides wasn't space saved due to lack of Jack?
Still LCD as it's predecessor. Don't think that adds to thickness. Xzp was hdr compliant. Nowhere close to this thick..
So, the "old" XZ1 Compact has a superb rating of 108h, while the "new" XZ2 Compact has a mediocre 88h...just great, Sony.
