ICE, 21 Mar 2016Exactly...the 950 really is that good.
This is from the gsma Z5 premium review :
Im so sorry, but really, I can livev with sonys camera photo shortcomings, as they are not visible at normal frame, youd have to be a photo cropping nut to even notice the difference, and at some instances lumia 950 comes out somewhat worse
Id never ever pick a lumia 950 for its video
Its really, really bad compared to z5, as seen in this comparisson ;-)
Oh, I see some samsung and lumia fanboys having fun here...
You guys are
Hilariously persistent 😁:-D

This is from the gsma Z5 premium review :
"Sony's new 23MP sensor shows great promise. But regardless of how powerful the hardware is, the camera image quality is still susceptible to recurring issues such as corner softness, high levels of noise and watercolor like effect on fine repetitive detail such as walls, foliage or grass.
The edge softness has been persistent on the Sony's cameras. Basically, the quality degrades when you get far from the center, the very edges of the photo can be particularly messy. So it captures more of the scene, but don't place objects of interest at the edge of the frame as you'll lose detail there."
Yet, some fanboys continue to be in denial.

I guess its better than s7. So sad dxo doesnt review WP phones.

The fact remains, whatever you call it boy, Sony mobiles have pathetic mid frame to border sharpness. So lets say it is postprocessing (which it isnt, otherwise the centre of the photos would be down on resolution as well) then why hasnt Sony fixed their algorithms? The poor mid to border res has been there since at least the Z2, persisting through to the Z5 and I strongly suspect in the X series.
You can't teach me anything boy, I onwned multiple phones including Sony and slr cameras/lenses. Dont come here with your little Z1/2 tendencies, claiming to know everything about camera systems. Lol.
Please educate yourself on lens resolution, how software processing is applied and how image stabilisation affects image quality.

There is no loss of sharpness fella, only in your imagination.
But please do go learn some terms at least, before answering back

Hahaha, ok now I've heard everything. The lens resolution is bad, plain and simple. Call it whatever you want though to make yourself feel better, point is, the res remains pathetic compared to the 950 and the S7. Sony smartphone = sure not a tool for landscape or architectural photography. They would have been far better if the used a Carl Zeiss lens. Fact.
Avand Rd, 21 Mar 2016Uh.. When Xperia led in DXOmark.... Sony is the BEST, photo quality is SUPERB, its untouchable... moreDxo is and always will be a refference...
In discussing camera quality with a bunch of you guys only a refference site is viable...
Cause you dont seem to care for anything more in debating.
And thus S7 is n1 by automode measurment, by a point.
What good is bringing extra camera factors into a debate, for ex highest ISO in a smartphone camera, or a fact that low EV level preserves most detail in 23mpx mode and negates the raleigh effect at that setting, when it is of no use here, guys like you dont even acclaim it as an advantage, you do not understand it, you dont even use the damn camera...
I did try that so much in the past, made a dozen linked photo comparissons that I personally made, but with no avail.
I just gave up after some time
So Avand and alikes, just dont even start on that here...
S7 is best as dxo mark says, I agree
I reffered interested parties to Flickrs pro photographers analyses of mobile cameras, so if interested go check their conclussions.
If you dont care what more people with pro experience have to say on the subject, then dont...
Its that simple.
why is it that this another flagship of xperia x or z series does not enhance battery life (mAh)? & RAM?
[deleted post]Uh.. When Xperia led in DXOmark.... Sony is the BEST, photo quality is SUPERB, its untouchable, automode is best method.DXOmark is the most reliable site.
You dont talk anything about exif setting, pro mode etc...
Now another device leads. You said its photo quality is HORRIBLE, the automode is BAD method. ????
I dont really care of it btw, i am not trolling. Just having fun.

There is NO lense blur you keep ranting of, no matter how much you try to turn the subject focus around...
Furthermore, you should compare shots within same exif setting to compare real quality, meaning same ISO, same mpx, same shutter speed, same white balance
Not automode settings
Do not be lazy, there are people there posting comparissons of phone cameras with same exif settings on sites like Flickr.
Where real pro photographers ( not opinionated fanboy folk) praise even old xperia z1 over galaxy s7 camera capabilities...
But I am certain you dont care...
Evenly enough, we that know sth about cameras, dont care about rants of fanboys like you
Based on DxOMark Labs for Mobile phone cams Samsung galaxy S7 Edge which has been announced 6 months later after Sony Xperia Z5, it has total score 88 points with only a point ahead than previous Sony Flagship Beast. if you are looking for premium quality and a real unique performace simply go for SONY.
ARITOR, 19 Mar 2016I see some people complaining about the bezels of this phone & want them reduced as much a... moreVery true. We love big bezels. But Sony needs to take the Bezel King Crown back from Apple first. X Performnce is a step in the right direction. Hopefully their September flagship will have bigger bezel than iPhone 4.
when this phone will be avaleble in saudi arabia please.
i am waiting this phone
use less not have a infrared port... for sony you must more innovation again for smartphone like samsung
Tann Hauser, 19 Mar 2016Dare to show your delusions on z5c and z5 in compare tool? You clearly battle to use the compare tool. First look for the small interactive green rectacle on the iso 12233 image in the left screen in the camparison window. You can even click on the colour chart next to it, move the green rectacle down to the pink fluffy ball. See how disgusting the quality is from a z series camera, now compare how clean the fluffy ball is against a 950. The 950 has far better edge quality compared to z. Done and dusted.
