So far so good. Sony is one of the best phones out there, if not the best

The XZP's lowlight capabilities are mediocre. Hopefully the next Sony flagship will have OIS and better post-processing software to fix this.

For your information, every smartphone taken low light photo (example in night club/in bar/in cinema environment/candlelight
etc) is not that greater but still can accept, unless using a CCD sensor or DSLR, but when taking interior light source photo ( example in indoors/shaded/in a shopping mall etc) are nice. Don't forget when the at the visible light source (example outdoors/near the window/in car etc) the Xperia XZ Premium is better than any competitors. If you use the manual mode you can set the parameters to take better lowlight shot with you photography skills.

DanDri, 14 Feb 2018To be honest, I don't really care for the Camera, I'm only buying this phone because its Sony'... moreyou think exactly like me. I got it for 400£ in the UK and it is a great price since phones are too expensive here. The performance is the highlight here. What a performance !
Khalel, 15 Feb 2018Any issues about this phone? I'm planning to buy this next week.If the announcement of the XZ Pro at the MWC doesn't convince me; I'll definitely get this model ASAP!
Please let the XZ Pro (or whatever the next flagship's called) have the chrome/mirror body again! I love it. It's unique and no other phone has it.

Khalel, 15 Feb 2018Any issues about this phone? I'm planning to buy this next week.No issues for almost 1 month usage. After upgrading to Oreo, display remains insane, performance remains fast, camera just above average, battery lasts for a day, loudspeakers volume got improved, overall superb phone!

Anonymous, 15 Feb 2018I'm glad that you have read up all about VR technology and now understand what its all about. ... moreWell, I always understood it...
Just some people here seem not to understand, and claim Xperias are uncapable of it, which is utter nonsense.
In fact, I bought one googled mobile headset with 102 degree lenses for as cheap as 12 euros, a week ago, just to try it out.
My X Perfomance runs these Cardboard VR apps, videos and games just fine and well.
I can even run Daydream suite with my X Performance coupled with this headset, and with controller emulated on another older phone. I tested it, visually its exactly the same experience as with Cardboard suite. It does not require oled screen, it just prefers it.
But these games are pretty basic looking, mobile SoCs dont allow for much of quality 3D VR graphics.
360 Video is good, for ex, VeerVR suite offers VR videos in 4K so people can enjoy them on 4k screens of XZ Premium in great quality.
I believe future of mobile VR lies in more quality 3D game streaming on at least 4k screens and from devices like PS4, and 5g connections, or standalone VR headsets with streaming capabilities.
Todays mobile tech is just pretty basic for VR gaming, good enough for VR video and apps.
Tann Hauser, 09 Feb 2018You talk about flawed logic, and yet discuss circumstantial tech stuff. How can those relate?... moreI'm glad that you have read up all about VR technology and now understand what its all about. Its a great new technogy with a big future

To be honest, I don't really care for the Camera, I'm only buying this phone because its Sony's 2017 Flagship and price has significantly went down. Also, buying this for the Front Firing Speakers and the display. And besides, this phone is promised to get Android P this year.
Please anyone tell me when will red colour available in india.?? Want to buy xz premium red variant...?

Google Pixel which has f/2.0 but still scores incredible on captured pictures which I think maybe pixel size (1.55μm) helps on capture detailed more lights on lowlight. But again, it's undeniable that software is the most important for image processing like managing sharpness, lower artifacts sharpening, noise reduction, high-contrast scenes, colour correction and much more.

First, Sony do not make DSLR's. They are the kings of the MIRRORLESS system, the Alpha series.
Second, ois is important for still shots at night where minor shakes exacerbate the already noisy, long exposed shot.
Three, and this is very important, a 1/2.3 sensor is bigger than 1/2.6 or 1/3. It is math here man, you seem to know very little about math. 1/1=1 which is the biggest value. 1/5= 0.2 which is a smaller value.
Pixel size is negligible on such small sensors. Yes bigger pixels are better but this has proven very insignificant on small sensors, look at htc M7/8, which claimed the bigger pixels will preform better in low light but the result was catastrophic.
The key factors for success are the F and the ois for night photography.
