Ali Bashir, 17 Dec 2017As usual amazing performance in most categories especially in camera, sure, Sony make believe.... moreHater gonna hate, they don't appreciate Sony at all, they will find excuses for their beloved brand. Even Sony has been improved and surpass the competitors from many fields.
danielle, 17 Dec 2017What a gimmick triple sensing technology yet it cannot focus at all! not hating but i used xpe... moreNo XZ doesn't heating up or overheating, it get warm only when playing games or performance test.
But 4K video recording still everyone can overheat not only XZ. Some weird solutions is fixed only 10 minutes record limitations, just like Samsung's engineers too clever lol.

danielle, 17 Dec 2017What a gimmick triple sensing technology yet it cannot focus at all! not hating but i used xpe... moreThe triple sensor based focus on the XZ was blazing fast (think all but as quick as the dual-pixel focus of the S7) but not as consistently accurate. That RGB-IR thing mind.....well I could never tell if that was actually doing anything, same as when i used the Lg G4 & G5 which both had one.
As for the 5-axis stabilization, that was impressive enough (though now beaten by the Pixel 2's video stabilization) but it was just too limited in it's actual use as it only worked up to 1080p@30fps.
And yes it affected performance in that it would cause the device temperature to rise quickly, which as you say was still an issue, at least as far as the nougat software was concerned (I'd sold my XZ long before Oreo was released on it, so not sure if that improved things).
Now the combination of Oreo and the improved hardware on the likes of the XZ1 might well have changed all that, I can see from Sony's own product page that 5-axis is still limited to 1080p@30fps however, but hopefully the auto-focus algorithms have been improved and the stabilization is not quite the same strain on the hardware.
Ultimately, I'm still not impressed by Sony's approach to mobile photography, it's always just too difficult to get that shot I am happy with. In comparison the Pixel 2 camera experience is a delight, point - shoot = excellent result, couldn't be simpler.
I'd still rather shoot video with the Pixel 2 as well, despite the mono audio recording, mainly because I can be assured that I'm not going to to get that blasted 'device temperature is rising' warning.
3D Memorys, 16 Dec 2017The Triple sensing technology (PDAF+Laser AF+RGB-IR sensor) and 5 Axis image stabilizer and Al... moreWhat a gimmick triple sensing technology yet it cannot focus at all! not hating but i used xperia z5 before changing to xz and it good phone but after nougat update it came very hot and then change to xz, the overheat issues is still there! it goes riot when extremely hot and oreo update does not change at all just better battery life. Then i change to s8 and it best phone i've ever used. Yes it has weird fingerprint place but often used and you can be normal with it, the weird things only feel when early used.
danielle, 16 Dec 2017How much flagship produced from sony this year? xzs, xzp, xz1, xz1c. right now I want to say a... moreThe Triple sensing technology (PDAF+Laser AF+RGB-IR sensor) and 5 Axis image stabilizer and Alkaleido Metal are first to launch by XZ and yet also bring forward the Qnovo to the XZ. Then what is your wishlist Actually?... Just An S8? so why bothering here? Will you have the wishlist on your Samsung S8? Sure, you definitely wish the S8's fingerprint scanner change to a better location, then you may start your complaint on S8 threads because improvement and critic will never be ended when we compare to the previous units.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2017GPU has no effect in image processing. Image processing is handled by the DSP which is located... moreAgreed, but it is actually the ISP that is mostly responsible for processing of digital images. The name ISP kind of gives that away when you about it, you know the Image Signal Processor.
For the most part though a modern SoC will likley support Hetrogeneous Computing, this allows for (amoung other things) other components of said SoC like the DSP or GPU etc to help out to varying degrees when processing digital photo images.
When it comes to processing these images, I highly doubt that it matters much at all if the GPU component of the SoC is of any particular type, be it Mali or Adreno etc.
In fact most Sony fans were pretty united in their disapproval of the Mali line of GPU, mainly I think as it was their hated rival Samsungs chief GPU of choice. Then Sony went and threw a Mediatek SoC that featured a Mali into one of their Xperia devices and what do you know, Sony fan based criticism of the Mali almost disappeared overnight....weird huh
Tann Hauser, 16 Dec 20173D scanner is pure genious.... 4 years in the making, impossible without Motion Eyes rolling ... moreHow is the camera performance of xz1, is there a rugged case available for this device?
3D Memorys, 15 Dec 2017You are underestimate Motions-eye sensor, it can use for Perdictive Capture and record 960fps ... moreHow much flagship produced from sony this year? xzs, xzp, xz1, xz1c. right now I want to say as xz user. xz is much failure! 3Gb of ram, gimmick 23mp camera not 19mp motion eye, non ois gimmick eis. the price is much higher than s7 when starting price. Im much regret buying xz after xzs released. And now 3d camera start on xz1 and why dont start on xz premium? 3d camera now had on oreo update xz premium but why dont have on xzs? Xzs also has motion eye camera. Im buy xz and it getting hot and camera is horrible on dark scenes but then change to s8 and it 10x better!
3D Memorys, 15 Dec 2017You are underestimate Motions-eye sensor, it can use for Perdictive Capture and record 960fps ... more3D scanner is pure genious....
4 years in the making, impossible without Motion Eyes rolling shutter free sensor and TOF sensor tech...
Offers New possibilities in AR, gaming, real world interaction...
They just jealous, so they spout gimmick and other nonsens words....
They think their different aspect ratio screens and small bezels are actually some kind of true mobile innovation, whilst just simple size or design changes...
This...,and 960 fps, are true innovation in mobile...
3D Memorys, 15 Dec 2017You are underestimate Motions-eye sensor, it can use for Perdictive Capture and record 960fps ... moreSony start all these evolution enrich the user experience, not to mention Sony phones use the AR more than 3 years earlier compared to anyone. Furthermore, Sony is the first one to adopt Qnovo to protect and prolong the battery lifespan.
DatUtter, 08 Dec 2017You can't come here and talk about your xz. I had xz before the main board died after just two... moreare you always that rude?
The one thing I would agree with is that XZ is a mistake. a huge mistake. Glad Sony fixed this with the XZ1. I will give them another chance with the next year flagships which look amazing. but I hope we don't have the same noisy and crappy camera with a 2300 battery! since their battery capacities are getting smaller with each generation for unknown reason.
[deleted post]Half baked gimmick is still better than no gimmick. Lol when Samsung and Apple use it, it will be a necessary feature right..get out lol
[deleted post]You are underestimate Motions-eye sensor, it can use for Perdictive Capture and record 960fps super slow motion video and for now it can scanning object to 3D files. Yet no one achieve these revolution except Sony!
