And you guys still busy to find one review that praise x camera from tons of reviews in youtube.
Guys, you have bad news, Sony will move away from 3 biggest market.
This year, for the first time Sony made their Midranges "X Series" outperform other brands high end flagships، regardless X Performance which is their first and great concept for this year's flagship.
Sony is "singing out of tune".
IFA is the K.O.
RockStar2005, 01 Jul 2016Tann,
Wow you've actually seen them do that with Sony Xperia phones but not Samsung etc?? ... moreIts quite obvious, most revs on web keep it on 8 mpx, despite 23mpx available in auto.
They use the shutter button without first step autofocus, despite software button usage producing better results with better autofocus and less blurr (try it out and see). And then they crop it at least 200% to come to noticeable noise. And its always about the noise only, never about detail, color, ghosting, noise reduction artefacts, etc.
And therefore so much difference in Xperia camera revs.
Manilla shaker is one of few revs that actually uses sony camera properly in auto, without tricks, soft button with prefocus 23 mpx in daylight, lower mpx set in lowlight as it produces better results.
He gives 200% crops for all the same as to see differences in detail and noise, and offers 1:1 shots alongside compared to a dslr camera.
In video he actually presents stabilisation performance of video rec in auto for daylight and night shooting, as mostly people actually are mobile while recording video with their mobile phone cameras....
My own compares: I use same scenario shots if available, on 100% and sometimes up to 200% crops(where you start seeing grain) and Sony always looks better because of bigher mpx count.
Dont know any person that crops their shots more than 100% though, for any a good reason, ever.
RockStar2005, 01 Jul 2016 Yeah Ali, I remember for the Z3 the test they did was on 8 MP too. I call CONSPIRACY!! lolThy still doing it with z3+,z5, x lol
Ali Bashir, 01 Jul 2016And know what, all camera tests of xperia against any brand they do it on 8mp not 23 :D

Tann Hauser, 01 Jul 2016Of course they do....

Wow you've actually seen them do that with Sony Xperia phones but not Samsung etc?? That's some MAJOR BS!
Yeah I mean, I'll read reviews, but I've seen 2 different REPUTABLE reviewers have very different opinions on the same phone. So in the end, sometimes you have to just try it out yourself to know the truth. And I heard you can use something called Flashtool on the US XP that would allow you to flash the int'l firmware on it to make the fingerprint scanner work. Doesn't require unlocking the bootloader or rooting either.
Ali Bashir, 01 Jul 2016And know what, all camera tests of xperia against any brand they do it on 8mp not 23 :DLook up manila shaker compare with x performance.
Obviously best camera at daylight, best for video for its.stabilisation in daylight and lowlight, in lowlight photo at 200% ( 200 mind you) grain is noticable, but in 1:1 and 100% crop even, bests them all, even in lowlight and night shots, having best iso and color reproduction ;-)
Talking about automode.of course ;-)

RockStar2005, 30 Jun 2016Whatever. They prob think the camera on the S7 is better? lol PLEASE!!! XP's camera is more CO... moreOf course they do....
When pixelpeeping sonys shots, they crop to 200% so to come up to the infamous GRAIN and noise.
Other phones, well, 100% crop is sufficient to say its just a better camera.
Always the same idio...
They also hated it not having fingerprint scanner.
And of course, they dont know and dont bother to know that it can actually record 4k....
Avan Dr, 30 Jun 2016And Tann keep saying this phone excells in every features. That's wrong. Even basic telephony ... moreKeep in mind nothing I say is wrong.
You just want to believe sth is wrong...;-)
I understand if 3rd party app has issue with certain phones. We still only have 2 person bought this phone, and all reports the similar issue.
Now, what sim card anonymous jgct use?
Aa2, 01 Jul 2016It is great telephony only has issues with t mobile doesn't mean it is crapExactly Aa2. There are certain apps that don't work on Samsung phones but do on Sony. So does that mean Samsung is crap too? lol Maybe for some reasons it might be, but not for that one.

And Tann keep saying this phone excells in every features. That's wrong. Even basic telephony feature has issue.
[deleted post]Whatever. They prob think the camera on the S7 is better? lol PLEASE!!! XP's camera is more COLOR ACCURATE and NATURAL-LOOKING.
Bagas Satya, 30 Jun 2016This kind of problem should not happen. Now , how about rockstar.. he has the problem fixed?
Not really "fixed" Bagas.........but at least it's been IDENTIFIED! The T-Mobile SIM cards are causing this. NOTHING ELSE. Plain and simple. Until a fix is made by Sony, just use the Contacts+ app. It's really not a big deal like I initially thought. Still, I'd rather see it resolved then left lingering. But it really doesn't cause any issues.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016 well i had my own solution now. i sign up new google account, cuz i dont need to keep nothing... more
Already tried that.......... doesn't work. It's THE T-MOBILE SIM CARD that's causing it. Take the T-Mo SIM card out, and it's fine. Put it back in, not fine. lol
I'm hoping Sony will create a fix for it soon and get it resolved. But really it's not a big deal......just use the Contacts+ app from Play Store and you're good to go anyway.
