I wish Sony went back to Xperia Z2 design. The phone looked classy than its predecessor and successor.

Its been proven here at gsmarena. and you are an genuine Sony owner. So, thanks for your honest review. Unfortunately, this is a Sony forum thats full of Sony Fanboys that just lie and promote Sony phones. For this reason, only listen to the real experts such as gsmarena here.

Yeah, you're right actually the XZ1 has a better camera than the iPhone 8. Lol just kidding. Seriously, even with the original photos without cropping or zooming, the iPhone is better. Maybe it's just a matter of opinion but I like the 8's photos more than the XZ1 results :)

So much better than predecessors in so many ways that make a big difference at the end of the day. Would be nice if bezels were just 2 or 3mm smaller (I like bezels), but excellent phone with very nice UI.
F1rstman, 16 Oct 2017I took the pictures in auto-mode and after that I zoomed it in for about 70% and took a screen... moreWait a minute.
Oh, now I see the mistake. You took screenshots...
You took 1080 x1920 pixel (translated to about 4mpx) shots of a 17 mpx full res shot...
I do crops of real full res shots for my compares.
I am affraid you made quite a mistake in your compare.
And quite a misleading one.
I played with it for quite some time today at a store and it looked very impressive, bulid quality is amazing much better than the XZ/XZs. Took lots of pics with it and was impressed with its pic quality which had lot of details with punchy colors.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2017Is it true that EIS is linked to image degradation compared OIS, has anyone taken photos with ... moreWhat degradation?
Here is a crop example of arenas own compare...
XZ1 took the shot with 800 ISO and 1/20 shutter(fastest), iphone8 with 100 ISO and 1/4 shutter, S8 with 200 ISO and 1/11 shitter.
Seems to me iphone8 did the worst, XZ1 and S8 are on par....Xperia lost some detail on wall and leafs, S8 lost detail on window railing and doors....
And again, I dont see how anyone can claim XZ1 is not on par with other competition in lowlight?!
F1rstman, 16 Oct 2017I took the pictures in auto-mode and after that I zoomed it in for about 70% and took a screen... moreI did the same.
But my compares look equally detailed.
Are you sure you used full res photos?Looking at the quality, seems to me you used thumbnails, not jpeg.
Will do with daylight shots too. Bare with me...
Tann Hauser, 16 Oct 2017Dont know where from and what you did with these shots, but they all look awful and compressed... moreI took the pictures in auto-mode and after that I zoomed it in for about 70% and took a screenshot of it. Then posted it on Imgur. It was meant to show how Sony's pictures lack in detail compared to the older iPhone 6s and the iPhone 8 in actually all lighting situations.
Is it true that EIS is linked to image degradation compared OIS, has anyone taken photos with XZ1? Does the image quality degrade overtime? Please reply asap!
I wonder! Why screen to body ratio in XZ1 is under %70 and in XZc, more than %70! However, bezels! Doesn't matter and finally I hope to higher sound in their stereo speakers! Audio Quality is really great! There is no difference between internal speakers or in headphones I guess XZ1 is made for me but price is a few hot actually
Great job Sony :)
My cheap android phone if isn't >>> XZ1 but:
Definitely! M.c.a phone = XZ1...lol

Meanwhile I made a crop compare too, from arenas full res shots of both phones in lowlight.
XZ1 took shots at 1000/1200 ISO and 1/16 shutter, iph8 took them at 100 ISO and 1/4 shutter...
I really dont see how anyone can claim iph8 is superior to XZ1 in lowlight, and what the heck are revs talking about when they state XZ1 is not up to par to competition in lowlight?!
I've compared the cameras of my iPhone 8, my brother's 6s Plus and the XZ1 which I bought to try and see if I would want to keep it as my secondary 'home phone'. I've already returned the XZ1 yesterday. It's a good phone. The speed performance, display, battery life and sound quality are all very good. But the camera is unacceptable as I already said in an earlier post. But I wanted to show you guys a quick photo comparison between the XZ1, 6s Plus and iPhone 8. Check it out!
After the Sony Xperia xz in 2016, Sony recognized that they are in need for a new camera sensor since although the 23mp camera does excellent job in good light but it was struggling in low light, Sony introduced a new camera sensor "Motion eye" the most advanced camera sensor until now which has less mp "19" than its previous sensor but it has larger pixel size, the result was magnificent, additional to the excellent daylight photography Sony finally achieved a near excellent lowlight photography, while other smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, Apple... went with the new dual camera lense trend contemplating for better performance and the result were a proof for their ignorance in this tech, most smartphone manufacturers again including Samsung and Apple went with OIS and EIS together "image stabilization techs" while these companies are struggling to surpass Sony smartphones which uses only EIS, btw watch these most famous camera comparisons videos for xz1, don't forget to share your opinion downside in the comments if you found any difficulties.
Remember, there is sometimes fanboys of another brands especially Samsung fanboys trying to thread wrong information against Sony.
