buy real camera (not phone) if you need manual mode.
A decent phone, but same old styling for years. I know Sony mobile is struggling financially, but it needs to improve to keep up with the big players

And their smartphone camera reputation is somewhat questionable. Personally, I stick with the bigger respected smartphone reviewer sites. They are very experienced with camera testing. Most people and myself only use auto mode. If you need better, then use a proper camera. Sony has great camera sensors, but its software isn't the best
Hi guys, please tell me which one is better including all features? Sony XZ, Sony Z5 premium or LG V20? tell me your reasons pls.
Tann Hauser, 12 Nov 2016Here's a dictionary for ya:
Learn it well.
... moreSony Xperia XZ has no test with DxOMark yet. At present Google Pixel phone is the best and unlikely to be toppled.
Your claim that Sony Xperia XZ is as good as a DSLR camera just shows your ignorance.
MirzaSohail, 11 Nov 2016Today I received 88 MB andriod system update for my XZ in UAE.
But I don't know what this up... moreHere:
Seems an ecellent update ;-)

And after that, tell me about exact standardized scientific camera test protocols of this here site.
Inpatiently Awaiting your input on the subject.
P.s. Just for the sake of it, I prefer X Performance auto photo camera postprocess more than XZ. XZ has its own strenghts tho.

Main problem is its standards are dslr camera based, not some-phone-rev-personal-opinion based.
Phone camera revs made pixelpeeping and only certain camera aspects standard, neglecting most other aspects.
Proof is here, compares offered by crops only insted of 1:1 photos, as if crop is a camera standard and not the actual shot.
Therein remains the problem, people value their own opinions most, so standardised measurments dont mean squat to them.
Make a compare of any phone to a dslr camera, and Xperias remains the closest to those dslr reproducing standards. Pixel closest now tho, but obviously XZ better except in dynamic range part.

" first waterproof android phone" !?!
Guess Android is part of phone build design in his head obviously....
Hes just trying too hard without relative substance.
Alais, Sony made also first waterproof 3.5mm jack, first waterproof powerbutton and first waterproof microUSB jack, thats waterproof design innovation at its best. Sony remains industry standard for IP certification on a mobile phone. Others can only copycat.
Sony's build quality has been going down the drain recently, even with the XZ. Sure the alloy metal back is fancy but not practical when the rest is made up of plastic. Realised my XZ doesn't lay flat on a flat surface and discovered a slight bend to the top corner. This wouldn't happen if it had all metal body. Been a Sony since past few years and this is quite disappointing since the price also doesn't justify its worth. This will be my last Sony phone..
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2016lol, sadly their cemeras are better than sony.Yes sadly but you just said that sony is bad luck and according to what I have seen is most smartphone camera are from Sony.. So it mean they took it from Sony and so become popular right?

It's superb according to me and I won't believe people who quarrel without seeing myself.

third,you are the one thay so hard to admit xz have good camera,i prefer you go try it yourself,it much even better than beliving from mix review and biased

I am sure Sony is ahead the competitors in waterproof smartphones. But, I don't know why some competitors making waterproof have to sacrifice the 3.5mm earphone jack to lightning port and some of them stay using cheaper mono speaker, they are shame/flaws in waterproof design.
[deleted post]Will you pay for that Specification on that time? The Casio G'one is such an antique and it is IP67 only. Nowadays all water-resistant smartphone come with IP68, how could you live in yesterday?
Sony making less smartphone but most of it with well design and premium quality, more than 20 and above are water-resistant smartphones, go and research yourself which company is rich experience in making water-resistant smartphone. You can't find one.
[deleted post]The Casio is the first making IP68 water-resistant smartphone? How many water-resistant smartphones they are make? Does it have great camera, great sound, great connectivity and gorgeous solid premium build?
The water-resistant must have the design and the technology change with each passing day, that why come out with IP68 water-resitant. The Sony making over 20 water-resistant smartphones including entry mid-range and flagships, they have rich experience in design water-resistant smartphone compare those speculators(competitors) nowadays .
[deleted post]Sony was the first phone to have a 4k screen
Sony was the first phone to implement 5 axis stabilisation
All Samsung does is copy and explode. Never really made anything innovative. Nobody needs a heart rate monitor on a damn phone!
Nobody needs a curved screen and an iris scanner. All unnecessary gimmicks!

Sonys 23 mpx camera with 5 axis stabilisation and triple hybrid focus leaves all other in dust.
As shown by multiple links here.
Youd have to know how to use manual for lowlight tho.
But then again manual is a feature that typical "jack knows it all" never ever uses.
