Hate the equalizer so I never turn it on.
my previous phone was xperia xz, i've got xz1 yesterday and i can tell you all from my experience not all fake stuff on the net that the camera is much improved in low light compared to xz but you have to use manual mode and do some settings and you will get some great pictures even without using flash, speaker are louder than xz, it really fast, and the screen is good too, battery is what make me worry but i need to test this more, btw 3d creator is great but takes time to get good result
F1rstman, 14 Oct 2017After almost a day of having the XZ1 I am planning to return it. I'm very sad about the low li... moreso you are very happy with everything except low light camera is just okay.
unless u are using low light camera 50 % of the times, I could understand your choice.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2017Did you know that sony produce almost all camera module of other brand of phone. This includes... moreLow light photos are better in manual mode.. but how many will be good with manual controls.. during z1 days.. low light outputs were better than other devices in market.. Sony got slow somewhere..
F1rstman, 14 Oct 2017Hi, yes Sony is indeed good with audio and hi-res files. The XZ1 has much better speakers than... moreLoudness through speakers should not compromise quality of the output.. there is where XZ1 stays strong.. It won't produce u high db output.. it may run 5 to 6 db shorter than counterparts.. but output will be crystal clear.. no noise or stressed output from speakers.
ArchDragoon, 14 Oct 2017Now almost every flagship smartphone support Hi-Res audio and even more better than Xperia. ... moreOther than LG I am not sure how many well know and famous brands are going with good DAC.. I am not saying Sony is best in music department.. I say Sony is good in that area.. Get hi-res certified headphones and don't turn equaliser on.. check how good xz1 is..
Finally someone gave the 3D picture creator feature of this smartphone a decent review, AMAZING!
Sony been always many steps ahead from the competitors especially in the camera department, this is definitely the most advanced smartphone, adding JOLED display next year and smaller bezels and booom perfect smartphone :D.

The XZ1 has much better speakers than the previous Xperia phones. But the iPhone 8 still has better sound through the speakers and through headsets too. More bass, warmer sound and louder. I've compared them and also compared the speed of the 6s Plus a couple of months ago with the U11. A two year old iPhone beat the Snapdragon 835 in pure performance. No phone can come near the A11 chipset in the iPhone 8. Apple is still the king of smartphone land. I'm not a fanboy of any brand or OS by the way. I like Apple, Sony and HTC. But I don't like Samsung, LG and Huawei.
Siva Bharani, 14 Oct 2017Everyone is aware that Sony did not improve anything with respect to low light.. U should be a... moreXz1 photos are more natural, not overbrighten, that was based on most videos that I have watched. Sony produce the best camera modules of all manufacturer.

This includes the myphone brand in the Philippines, do you mean almost all phone including samsung phones have bad lowlight performance because their camera module is came from sony. I guess the mistake sony made is it didn't give much effort on commercial propagandas in televisions. Well most of people watch tv more than surf net to see such media commercial

Do you know why ? It's because Xperia just using qualcomm DAC which is the worst.
Looking at another flagship you can see Cirrus Logic, Wolfson and ESS sabre DAC and also the nice headphone amp which Xperia never have.
ESFAHAN, 08 Oct 2017And what are the best Android Camera Phones at the moment ? I think only the Pixels have OIS ... moreYes it is probably the Google pixel as last year, Google pixel, IPhone, Samsung, are all using now both OIS and EIS but still they didn't achieve what Sony did with only EIS.

Good battery with awesome Music output.. Try to hear Hi-Res files.. Again, it is not for Low light photographers..
After almost a day of having the XZ1 I am planning to return it. I'm very sad about the low light camera performance. The lack of OIS is really showing. I also have an iPhone 8 and my brother has a 6s Plus. Both these iPhones beat the XZ1 in ALL low light pictures especially in sharpness when you zoom in you see it clearly. I understand why iPhone 8 has received such a high DXOMark score, it really has an amazing and reliable camera. I am a little bit sad about the XZ1 because it's a fantastic phone in all other departments. The screen is beautiful and bright and I like that you can change the white balance, the speed is phenomenal, really great optimization by Sony, and battery life is one of the best I've ever seen for such a powerful phone. Around 7 hours of screen-on time easily. But like I said, I'll probably return the XZ1 and just buy an iPhone 7 as a secondary phone next to my iPhone 8 which is the king of smartphones of 2017 for me :)
Totally, all of them (neo xz series) r shamefully smartphone I have ever seen! Especially those great bezels!! Just damn ;_;
I will receive this phone today in the silver colorr. I also have an iPhone 8 (also silver) that I use as my main phone but I like having two phones to use one of them only at home as a tiny tablet haha. So the Sony is meant for home use. But there's a chance I'll like the XZ1 more than the iPhone 8 haha. We'll see. Can't wait!
