I can't say if you are good at photography that you can spend time to perfect manual setting each time you want to take a picture.
Apart from camera, I think Sony is above the rest. I would see Sony as the most reliable, practical phone with innovative features instead of trying to argue that Sony camera is better than iPhone or Samsung.

If Sony can improve their camera they'll be on top without any doubt.

their flagships are too expensive and cannot compete with the competitors in terms of features. almost all rich people never consider to buy sony's flagships.
Unless people spend time to use Sony phone, they will not understand why Sony phone is a great device.
Agree if Sony camera is not as good as Samsung and iPhone, but overall experience such as performance, reliability, battery last, battery degradation, multimedia experience, software updates, and maintaining performance when it gets older; they are all really great.
this is smartphone forum, let's talk about signal strength, voice clarity in noise envi, battery life for daily use. Camera is just matter of taste, somebody love cheese, others chocolate, no absolute answer
3D Memorys, 17 Mar 2018Why everytime Sony introduce a new phone must have this kind of story?
Just like an AI copy p... morebecause sony always making failures every year.
this year, their failure is in their design which similar to htc. 2017 was camera distortion. 2016 was also camera issue. and prior to 2016 was overheat issues.
in the past sony-ericsson was a great company. but now they (sony minus ericsson) become very dumb, cannot compete with competitors.
Presently on my Z5 Premium I have two SIM, one for my calls and another data SIM. Another slot for the microSD. Now with these new models I have to carry a wifi router with me. I am not sure how these people think. Sony creates a facility and next model you take it away. Funny, 19MP rear and only 5MP front. I think I better switch to OnePlus. Enough being your die hard fan from Sony J5 https://www.gsmarena.com/sony_cmd_j5-201.php YOU ARE NOT WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS.
Funny, someone posts his own good opinion about Xperias camera, and a bunch of you always pop out like popcorns, all shouting "blind", "fanboy", "crap", "worst" etc, etc...
Like some autobots.
I guess some of you people are always lurking to trash and bash here...
No, really, control yer super fnboyism a bit.
Try to be more polite, and respect peoples different opinions...

Camera is the strongest department of this phone, and still... far from best.
I will skip this model due to my wallet that just flew for Sony Xperia XZ premium. It's not like that is terrible design. Or might say it's not like the chinese phone at all if the fingerprint on the side. But for the bulky thickness design I kinda don't like it. But I will wait for next model. RIP Sony Xperia XZ2's headphone jack.

Check their listings for last year.
Some big mobile brands dont trust DxoMark anymore.
Because they lost their credibility since their "new protocol", when they just "unintentionally" included some specific test protocols, to accomodate scoring for the release of certain new phones from certain brands.
And also changed their scoring to ridiculous and mathematicaly unplausable, getting overall scores of 99 from a range of subscores 63 to 92 (???), and therefore so easily susceptable to bias.
It is funny that Arena actually became more reliable and thorough than Dxo for mobile camera testing, even tho we have to conclude on subscores ourselves here, from comparisson test tool and their real use shots and videos.
Became a joke. And it shows, in their mobile section portfolio. Never even heard of most of those phones, that made it there in last half a year.
What is LYF, Intex, Lava?!
Even if Sony gave them XZ2 for review, and they scored it top, I wouldnt rely on their score. I would rely on what my eyes actually see, here, on test tool and outdoor samples.
Ali Bashir, 22 Mar 2018I think this is the new king lowlight shooter. https://youtu.be/2Nz1BhKqeU0You were easily trust any unreliable video from any channel on Youtube. There is a bunch of video on youtube which show camera comparison. If you realised that if Sony phones were competing with other brands, you could see on comments section which flooded with many poor Sony fans praising their own brand, saying Sony wins. But on real life, that was opposite. I don't see XZ2 make an appearance on DxOMark, knocking out S9 Plus.

Just too much noise cancelling leaves less detail, less texture and less sharpness on 9.
Pixelpeeping is more easier on the eyes due to less noise there tho.
