Anonymous, 10 Oct 2017How about the poor night camera quality? Is it true?You can go to YouTube and watch some honest reviews of its bad low light photography. Or read Sony reviews here at gsmarena which always comment on Sonys bad low light photography. One of the reasons why, is the Sony only uses the cheap EIS technology which is known for bad low light photography. Better photography uses OIS. Plus there is the bad Sony camera software also.
Remember that your asking in a Sony forum,so Sony fanboys will always deny the truth.

I love the way sony is making phones these days . After xperia x I have seen some real efforts by the company to make some good phones . X compact was the best phone I have seen in years . Perfect phone in the hand. It fits like a glove. Though maybe not flagship but still amazing. And xz had an amazing camera . Good job sony .
AnonD-706589, 08 Oct 2017xz1You can't say it's better. Depends on what the person wants :)
AnonD-706286, 07 Oct 2017OIS or EIS , Which one is better ?Main advantage of OIS is that there is no image degradation as necessary compensations are made before optical signal is fed to the CCD. But the hardware for mechanical motion of lenses buts a strain on your battery backup and also adds to the weight of the device.
EIS has become quite popular these days because of they are light and less expensive and with improvement in algorithms used for stabilization image degradation is minimal. But at low resolutions and in poor lighting conditions, you might see significant degradation.
With consumer electronic devices which donÂ’t have a very high resolution , like your SmartphoneÂ’s or low resolution Camcorders, OIS is more effective technique and also out performs EIS in dimly lit areas.

They optimize their phone well so it never lag. They fix all issues and bugs. What do you want more? Buy laggy Samsung. Sony isn't for you.
The big bezels, low audio volume, poor night camera quality, low loud speaker. This has been the same problems for the past 5 years!!! Sony engineers are so stupid. If they fix this, their phone will sell. I will buy!!!!
