I'm now not quite sure why I got "overheat soon" warning earlier on, they never show up anymore.
PARM4XPERIA, 10 Oct 2016honestly iphone 7 wins the race in comparison of camera specially in low light and shutter spe... moreI will wait the DxOmark review rather than agree than your personal opinion.
I am that you didn't take photo in a dim light environment , if your background is green color wall, you must agree XZ is improve the white balance with the new hardware so call RGBC-IR, or you want the objects become Green Lantern looks? Another things is you should try out shooting a moving object in low light or take some action photos, iPhone 7 without laser autofocus surely a bit slower than XZ. The result I will wait the DxOmark test rather than misleading by any spam for Xperia.

I am also planning to go for similar hand on on sony booth. What you told is ok. Few things are known already. Its surprising though that main camera unit has not improved much. Anyway, i am targeting the below aspect in xz which I am missing in my z5.
1. Poor battery life.
2. Much less contrast of display.
3. Heating issue from 810.
All these are ofcourse with reference to my earlier experience with z2 and z3. atleast these aspect should get through knowing the xz figures for these .

garalao, 10 Oct 2016just wanna ask your opinion between the xperia xz and iphone 7, which one is better in camera ... moreif u want to go for a better camera then go for sony because sony is specialized in cameras and screens. apple made only computing devices.
garalao, 10 Oct 2016just wanna ask your opinion between the xperia xz and iphone 7, which one is better in camera ... moreSony always has the best camera performance, but if you want real benefits from it, then you need to learn how to use manual, because you will not be fully satisfied if you used auto mode, the auto mode usually use ois more than what you need, which makes pictures sometimes noisy.... You need just to keep ois down as much as you can and boom best picture.
PARM4XPERIA, 10 Oct 2016honestly iphone 7 wins the race in comparison of camera specially in low light and shutter spe... moreExcuuuuuuuse me!!!
There are no match for sony in terms of camera performance, sony is the king of this zone, saying iphones camera is better than sony's is like saying sony devices is faster than iphones, i know that iphones performance is the top no doubt.
garalao, 10 Oct 2016just wanna ask your opinion between the xperia xz and iphone 7, which one is better in camera ... morehonestly iphone 7 wins the race in comparison of camera specially in low light and shutter speed also fast then xperia xz.shutter speed and auto focus fast in iphone 7 otherwise android mobiles have his own benifits which dnt match wiith iphone software..

iam from india today i checked xperia xz full funtions in sony showroom,currently iam using xperia z5 dual and iam a big fan of sony high range mobiles and about xperia xz there is no a big upgrade from xperia z5,the difference from xperia z5 is only that i noticed 1sec shutter speed faster which is not noticed by anyone if upgrade from xperia z5 to xperia xz and front camera is tooo much impressive then xperia z5 dual but z5 front camera is also good for selfie and my plan to upgrade from xperia z5 dual to xperia xz after seeing both in my hand changed ,iam happy with xperia z5.my xperia z5 take better snap i checked parallel both mobiles only minor difference in colour which is not noticed by eyes and about low light snaps iam really feel sorry there is no difference between xperia z5 and xperia xz and the story of triple sensor i dnt noticed in low light or in sunlight snaps because camere is my 1st preference when i buy sony mobile,no option of 2sim card and 1 memory card same time installed.sorry to say if you have xperia z5 dual and u planned to buy xperia xz its a downgrade option because today i visit sony showroom for buying xperia xz but honestly disappointed from all results specially if u used xperia z5 already and if u used other old models of xperia mobile then sure u impressed with xperia xz but no option for 2 sim and one sd card same time and z5 dual have option for 2 sim 1 sd card same time with low cost with nearly same specification...i compare practically both mobile and its my opinion..if somebody have any question abt xperia xz and funtions feel free to ask me with my name...thanks..
Lex79, 10 Oct 2016Well the 'better overall phone line' is subjective, and I disagree as I think the processor is... moreLike I said, in my country, XZ costs the same as S7 ane HTC 10. Which is less expensive, considering XZ just released.
I just got the Sony xperia xz yesterday I love it the scree is so colourful bright and sharp it like there is no glass in front I love Sony all about quality for there flagship phones

I'll say this a though, in my personal experience, I have never seen any major issues from older iOS device running later versions.
My wife had an iPhone 5 until quite recently which was running iOS 9.3.3 quite nicely indeed.
Ken Do, 10 Oct 2016What's wrong with the processor?iPhone's processor is usually better than Qualcomm's stuff that we are stuck with. Older generation isn't that much better, but for this generation it is quite a bit better.
Lex79, 10 Oct 2016Of the two, price being equal as it is, I would say the iPhone offers the better value of the ... moreSony provides pretty long software update service as well, and not too bad either. My Z2 got update this year around April to Android 6.0. For a phone that age, I'm quite satisfied. My Z4 Tablet continues to get update. Part of the reason Z2 doesn't kept getting update is likely due to Qualcomm refusing to provide driver for Snapdragon 800 series to run Android 7.0
Yes I know iPhone kept getting update for longer than that, but the newer update on older phones usually makes it so slow as to be unusable. So is that actually worth anything if the update makes the phone unusable...
