The Italian Competition and Market Authority (AGCM) has officially opened an investigation against Apple and Samsung over reduced performance of older phones. Even Samsung have deny but still under investigation.

Really hope they roll out the current Manual Mode with both ISO and shutter speed controlled together to the older Z series, it is kind of a shame since my XPERIA Z1, XPERIA Z2, XPERIA Z3, XPERIA Z3+, XPERIA Z5, XPERIA Z5 PREMIUM are ALL packing such high megapixel counts, which I am very confident to say that it can do a much better job if they roll out the current Manual Mode to them

And at 1/8 s I dont even have to hold it extra steady.
Heck, even some 12 mpx OIS + f1.7 cameras shoot lowlight in auto at 1/10 s shutter.
And XZ1 has even adjustable SS to it all, so I m certain it can do even better than mine.
Sony should maybe just add a lowlight mode button to automode, with similar extra adjustments that keep it at 12 mpx, shutter at 1/8 s and ISO up to 600 max. I believe revs would then be more impressed with automodes lowlight details and noise levels.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2018Which one has better camera for low light photography xz1 , xzs or xz?I wouldn't say which have a better one but I would say some brought some minor improvements over another one. I did test my XPERIA XZs, XPERIA XZ PREMIUM and XPERIA XZ1 before a month ago, overall they are very similar for the photos they capture, except XPERIA XZ1 have a slightly better image processing than the other 2. I would suggest them that they should put OIS into their smartphones with a lot of effort in improving the software too
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2018Have you used manual mode for lowlight and is there other mode except for manual and automode... moreThe only modes are Superior Auto and Manual Mode. Manual Mode is the way to go when it comes to low-light, even though it doesn't solve the noise level that much

Anonymous, 14 Jan 2018Compare to the cameras of the otherbrand with same aperture, how do you compare xz1 camera.Same aperture? They would probably perform better in low-light if they have OIS. For Sony, one thing I have to say is I am sure they wouldn't put OIS into their smartphones, I also don't know why but currently some high-end flagships also don't have OIS on their smartphones and still perform pretty decent in low-light. Sony just needs to improve their camera algorithm and software

I see why Sony can't even change their outdated UI, because they used LCDs display which is good with whites but bad for your eyes, whereas blacks will cause battery drain. Only if Sony used AMOLED display then blacks would be good for battery power consumption.
ALPHABOY17, 12 Jan 2018Can someone who has bought this phone tell me how is the phone in daily usage? Battery life, s... moreDaily usage for battery life is just average for me, don't get me wrong, because I use my smartphones moderately, like playing games for 30mins, watching YouTube for 30mins and sometimes on standby so yeah, but it still can last me a day till 7pm everyday. Comparing this battery life with my XPERIA XZ with ANDROID OREO too, this does have better battery life than XPERIA XZ, and I am kind of happy with that. Speaker quality for other people have mixed feelings about it, for me I think it is around the more than average mark for me. Their front facing speaker have good clarity, but for their loudness...I have different feelings with it. In places like a food centre where it is very noisy, u are unable to hear anything even with maximum volume, my friend's SAMSUNG GALAXY S8 is able to blast out sound at such a noisy place with maximum volume. Yes, I know it is not the loudest speakers out there, but u will be pleased by the clarity and bass if u are in a quiet place, what I like about the speakers most is when u are in a quiet place, hearing music with the speakers is perfect for me. Display quality is sharp for me already, even though it is only FHD at high-end flagship level. One reason why I buy their Z and X high-end flagship series smartphones for years already is the display, it may not have vibrant colors like AMOLED, but, I chose natural colours over vibrant colors. Performance is top notch, no surprise since it is the most powerful processor from Qualcomm. UI there is only one word to describe, "Simplistic". There are a lot out of people out there who want a more customizable UI, but a near to stock UI is best for me, my Z series flagships are still snappy now, even though the performance may not be the same as day one, same goes to my newest X series high-end flagship collection XPERIA XZ1. Camera please don't expect much in low-light situations, it takes excellent photos with Superior Auto in daylight, but struggles in some low-light situations. It can take excellent photos if u are taking lights in low-light, but for scenery try to take it at daylight. I am very sure the price of XPERIA XZ1 is a lot cheaper than the time I bought it, so if u are willing to accept it's struggle in low-light then it is for u
