Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018Foreground object need to be at 1-1.5 feet away from camera which make bokah app from sony use... moreBokeh/background defocus "Sony's app" is available since the z3 or even earlier it is an excellent app which achieves what Samsung and Apple trying to achieve now by adding another camera lens lol.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018Foreground object need to be at 1-1.5 feet away from camera which make bokah app from sony use... moreYeah, but it was there years before any other OEM even made a B word for bokeh or P for portrait mode.
It needs to be updated, and being Bokeh called on XZ2, it just might be.
It is way ridiculous to put the camera lens and fingerprint scanner lower than other smartphone, it is stupidity most people grip the middle frame and don't grip from the bottom frame, when come into the landscape shooting mode camera lens near to the upper frame must easily cover with fingers, these design really let me down!

Also, it failed many times when try to defocus. Useless app. Just a gimmick.
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2018Copycat design.
Back curves copied from htc butterfly.
Back glass finish copied from htc u11... morelolllll what u say Is what I think butt butt please wait until u touch and try the phone first.. I think the 11.1 is until the top side of the curve at the back from side view it is not thick may be around 7~8 mm....
I think the curve if for better holding of phone as the palm also curve shape so when u holding it your palm can feel the glass fully...
for headphone no issue as I not use headphone often very less use.
sony is the only brand whose flagship phone have camera with - f/2.0. all other have less then 2.0. to bad for sony.
Sony lost its unique design, started to be on all other phones. very ugly - xperia xz2!! shame on you sony!
Dean F, 06 Mar 2018Looks like a samsung or htc phone now. I loved the hard lines on the previous generations. ... moreMore like htc, especially the back, circle camera and fps, only different in placement, sammy phones are quiet different, the edges front n back, square camera n fps..
sony owner will die if they give more battery capacity. so another failure model with very good design and specs. Its better to but Sony xa2 ultra with bigger battery & display
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2018Does anyone know the XZ2 has how many laser autofocus sensor?If the function of laser is similar to optocoupler, so just one laser in XZ2
Looks like a samsung or htc phone now. I loved the hard lines on the previous generations. I would have preferred omnibalance with 16x9, but with reduced bezel.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2018Background defocus is different from bokeh. That's weird coming from Sony as "bokeh" is actual... moreBackground defocus blurs the out of focus area, and gives options to change quality and level of that blur in different modes.
And yeah bokeh is sth else, but all other use Bokeh wording for background defocus in portrait modes.
let them take 6 more months to have xz2premium. dont want the premium now to be not much better than xz2.

That's weird coming from Sony as "bokeh" is actually a Japanese word. It is specifically used to describe the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens (from Wikipedia), and not the degree of background blur.
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 05 Mar 2018Common sense doesn't solve the issue. And just like what I said before. You are being biased. ... moreIt's different. Depends on the country, and yes, you are correct, I am in Europe.
