Tann Hauser, 17 Feb 2017You ll never live to see the day of that retest.Haha
sad but true
Can't wait to get my hands on the platinum. Z2, Z3, Z5, X and now the XZ. It has been a wonderful journey with Sony.

But Automode is for ease of use and online standardized parameter testing only, and is not relevant of true camera capabilities that are indeed known only to mobile manual camera users.
And please no more S7 comparing, theres quite plentyof that here doing rounds over and over.
If one wishes to compare, there are quite a lot more relevant devices out there to compare to XZ.
AnonD-481725, 17 Feb 2017Definitely wrong, Samsung has more gimmick features more than sony which causes software issue... moreI am using Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) for a year now and it doesn't lag a bit. And i am thinking of buying an Xperia XZ just to try it i never used a Sony smartphone before. About camera, most users does not know anything about manual settings so i think auto mode is more important to most people.

AnonD-257122, 16 Feb 2017Exactly, Samsung is lame when it comes to updates and they're half baked too.Samsung has a lot more useful software features than Sony. I don't like Sony's software and they always fail at camera software no matter the quality of the camera lens. XZ is still behind the S7 in terms of picture quality.
for all the samsung fanboys.
Samsung will be using sony batteries on their s8.
Funny how samsung relies on sony more than ever now.
after android 7.0 update we see lots of improvements in ui camera battery and performance

AnonD-521587, 16 Feb 2017meanwhile reports say battery increased on sony devices. sony has superior software to lagsung. Because android in Sony's mobiles is very close to Pure android! Closer maybe xD
AnonD-521587, 16 Feb 2017xz having better audio quality than HTC is one of those things heavily debated in many audio p... moreNo. I enjoy my Xperia Z2 then that's enough.
My last phone is Samsung S2 it is a mess in audio quality and unpleasant to hear, the only better way to listen music with Samsung S2 is increase the volume to max level, but it hurt my ear and can't listen for a longer time, the bass is stupidly fake and the treble is perfectly shrill but I can't enjoy the horrible noise/melody.
I change to Xperia Z2 because it is sturdy build and Battery endurance with stamina features and most important it is waterproofing. Sony is also lead with the first Walkman: the soul of the music, and I can listen the music show out with soul. I believe Japan's tech although the Japan's economy not that good, but I know Sony have talent in develop smartphone (including the camera, audio, display etc) and it show my decision is right and I love my Xperia Z2.
Need camera update, too much artifacts ((( and overall quality not so good
