This is the XZ forum and we really only want to hear experiences from owners of the XZ. Too many experts here already that don't even own this XZ.
AnonD-624134, 24 Dec 2016Thank you for your honest reviews of XZ. I'm considering upgrading from my Z5. Its been a go... moreSorry dude, didn't see this message until now.
Taking into account that my own time with the Z5 was extremely limited, I'll just say that aside from the camera, where the only real improvement you'll see is in focusing speed (which is nice and fast mind you), the XZ is a solid upgrade over the Z5.
The screen is excellent, honestly it can equal any on the market, don't listen to the 2k crowd this is better than the likes of the G5 screen. Battery life also is impressive will good controls over stamina extensions.
Performance has no issues, the modern Nougat Xperia skin is Probably the best android skin I have used. Speaking of Nougat Sony seems to be taking an aggressive stance when it comes to software updates, couple that with their efforts at increasing overall battery longetivity and I would say Sony have a good platform on which to build in 2017.
Personally, I don't see how you would be disappointed upgrading from the Z5 and would say go for it.

That clip proves nothing, it's just two samples thrown together. People will watch it and draw their own conclusions, and like you most will do so according to their own bias.
Better instead to go by actual reviews, like the one linked below where the reviewer (a knowledgable and experienced photographer, who does some of the most complete smartphone camera reviews on YouTube) at least mentions the quality of the slo-mo footage.
It's based on the X performance, but there's no reason to think there would be any difference in quality between it and the XZ, the part you want starts at 10:30 into the review:

AnonD-624134, 24 Dec 2016Probably going to upgrade to XZ from my trusty Z5. The 2 irritating points in my Z5 of bad bat... moreOnly real cons I can point to on this device are the camera system, and the low volume of the speakers. In both cases though their are caveats to those cons.
One is the camera isn't bad, just not up there with the majority of the competition and still has issues with thermal management. Two is that yes the volume output of the speakers is on the low side, but not overly so and the sound quality is actually very good.
All other aspects of this phone are copacetic, and I think a worthy upgrade over the Z5.
AnonD-481725, 24 Dec 2016Great, very interesting :D.It is yes. What's more interesting is that even though you and Tann Hauser are busy policing this comments section for opinions you don't like, questioning my objectivity and my honesty, turns out it seems neither of you actually own an Xeperia XZ.........very interesting.
AnonD-624134, 24 Dec 2016Do you own a Sony Xperias Phone ??Z3, from two years and still prefect until now, and whenever it is serving me well i will keep it.
Lex79, 24 Dec 2016Don't owe you any explanationsGreat, very interesting :D.
AnonD-481725, 24 Dec 2016OMG!! artifacts ruined the score, why sony why D:Do you own a Sony Xperias Phone ??
Probably going to upgrade to XZ from my trusty Z5. The 2 irritating points in my Z5 of bad battery life and running hot seem to be much improved on the Latest Sony Xperia XZ. These reported camera issues are not so specific as I'm sure that it still takes great pics. Overall, it appears to be a worthy upgrade. Thanks to Laqesh and Lex79 as being honest owners of this device. Please keep it honest and tell us the pros and cons of the XZ.
Dovice, 24 Dec 2016Good to see someone articulate and spot on here! I am a big fan of the Xperias (owned Z1, Z3, ... moreHi,
Wouldn't say any camera functions without issue, the perfect camera is not yet a thing. For instance I found the iPhone 7 to sometimes mis-focus, the S7 still tends to over do it with saturation and the G5 is now looking very slow to focus and take pictures compared to the best of 2016.
But I get your point, in terms of point and shoot, both the S7 and ip7 walk all over the XZ, and the G5 has probably the best manual shooting mode I've seen.
Why Sony are lagging behind, and perhaps even (according to DxoMark at least) regressing is likely down to them not finding a balance between hardware capability and software features.
All just my opinion though.
AnonD-391800, 24 Dec 2016But you re the "owner" I suppose....

Besides I've seen enough to conclude you don't have that much of a clue as to what your talking about anyway.
As you require updating on your Sony Xperia knowledge though (some well informed expert you are) here's an excerpt from XZ product page In which it is stated quit clearly by Sony themselves:
"Intelligent Active Mode only supported on up to Full HD resolution 30 FPS."
And your welcome for the info.

I am a big fan of the Xperias (owned Z1, Z3, Z something Compact) and still have still zippy Zperia Tablet Z1. Really want an XZ but as you correctly point out, the same camera issues as those other models plague the XZ. What is odd is that Sony supply the sane sensor to companies like Apple and sometimes, Samsung, and yet their cameras function without issue. Hell, even my 2 year old LG G3 shoots 4K video without a problem!
