ying zu, 11 Mar 2018Back cameras now moved to the centre in recent sony phones . in 70% of my photos my finger us... moreCamera position is not decided by sony's engineers.
It only depends on which phone they copy from.
They copied design from iphone's glass sandwich design and camera placement for past xperias(starting from xperia Z)
Now with XZ2, they copied design from htc U11 plus, so their camera placement is in the middle.
3D Memorys, 10 Mar 2018You have make the wrong judgement. Does the HTC U11 has dual front firing stereo speaker? No. ... moreRGB sensor is design?
NFC is design?
IP 65 is design?
He is telling about design...dude...design.
Why not compare with U11 plus? U11 plus has less bezel, better and original design. Not like copy cat XZ2.
Back cameras now moved to the centre in recent sony phones . in 70% of my photos my finger used to cover the lens partly and DESTROYED my photos , how stupied was that on the engeeners to put it in the far top corner , I suffered with all my sony phones from z3 to xz1 five different phones , luckily the idiots did not fit it in the side phone in the top corner . took them 5 years to understand that this was idiotic regardless the tens of the stupied sony engeeners employes . any way that is GREAT news for me. GREAT GREAT GRAT GRAT GREAT GREAT GRAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT . Sony do you listening somtimes

"Liquid" is like a drop of water it has heavier the upper position and lighter at the bottom back cover area because it is totally no a symmetry design.
"AMBIENT FLOW" is air flow design just like a moving UFO, it has symmetry design and balanced weight for it upper and bottom back cover position.

htc's design is called liquid (i dont exactly remember, but it is inspired by water).
sony's design is called ambient flow, also inspired by water or something liquid.
this is the proof that sony is copycatting htc.
shame on sony
Mysterious.. f/2.0 & a lot of improve to previous versions..!?? especially about images quality in low light..
AnonD-481725, 10 Mar 2018No, and not even the Google pixel, what is the secret? I think Samsung already pre-ordered one... moreI dont know.
Either Bionz ISP, or new X reality.
But definitely a whole new mobile camera level.
I guess they redeemed themselves for jacking the jack here.
I cannot not fan this phone now. :-)
Tann Hauser, 10 Mar 2018Have you ever seen this much detail and color in 4K video? https://www.gsmarena.com/vidcmp.ph... moreNo, and not even the Google pixel, what is the secret? I think Samsung already pre-ordered one to study it lol.
AnonD-481725, 10 Mar 2018I have never seen such amazing lowlight samples like this.

This is amazing stuff.
[deleted post]You have make the wrong judgement. Does the HTC U11 has dual front firing stereo speaker? No. Does it has dedicated hardware shutter key? No. Does it has laser and RGB-IR sensor and NFC? No. Does it has equal back cover? No. Does it has centered fingerprint scanner on back? No. Does it has IP65/68 design? No. Does it has less bezel with ergonomic design? No.
So the XZ2 much better and different compared to HTC U11.

Dual cams just do it more seamlessly, as both shots are taken at same time, and can be taken from more far away, due to different optics and wider available focal range between two cameras (for portrait mode), but them are also binded to some max distance to make the bokeh effective.
DSLR is single camera bokeh/portrait too, but with much better optical system, wider focal range, and thus much better results than any mobile dual cam system.
I have never seen such amazing lowlight samples like this.
Tann Hauser, 09 Mar 2018You got XZ2? How? You tried it already?What he meant is the app from Sony called Bokeh, which was once named as Background Defocus. To be fair the app isn't the "bokeh" we see on the top smartphone cameras, it is just like photoshop apps from the Play Store, no difference. And it is all done by the app, not the camera software. It is two different matters if someone talks about bokeh with app or bokeh with their own camera software...
