Well... IMO as of today, prior to the MWC announcements to be made by Sony, this device
(including... catch a breath of air: it's size in comparison to it's AR, the big bezels, a not so loud speaker, QC v3.0 instead of v4, no Qi charging, the weakness in low-light photography, a bunch of apps/functions now removed by Oreo and/or discontinued from Sony... phew) if the rumors are to be true might become a niche product... and possibly the last premium, top-tier quality flagship by Sony Mobile years before they retire their division from this bloody market, sell it or return to a joint-venture partnership. God forbid it... I truly hope to be way wrong!
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018Is it normal for the phone to lose 10% battery in 20-30 minutes due to video streaming? yes

Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018There is no way to get decent night pic from XZ premium period.Not true. Just use the manual mode, and use the appropriate white balance setting for low light photography. Sony by default is always low.. Compared to other phone settings...
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018There is no way to get decent night pic from XZ premium period.You mean, worst if not decent? I could manage to get pretty decent shots if not good. Learn to use Manual Mode for lowlight shots, but you'll need a tripod for eliminating shakiness. That's only the problem.

Don't be bias, every smartphone with long exposure mode should be mounted on a tripod.
Guyzzz please tell me when xz premium rosso red colour available in india?
AnonD-145316, 16 Feb 2018Speakers improved with a larger margin after oreo update! I guess you still on android 7.1.1Honestly, even with Oreo the speaker volume is still a bit low

I have still the Z2 and i love it. I have the xz premium and adore it so far, and I have a Sony HX60 camera, in addition to a Sony MDR ZX770. I am a Sony fan.
But the competition in better in low light, whether we like it or not.
PS please don't preach me about manual modes, I was brought up in a house where 7 old SLR's and a Canon 1000D existed. I learned photography at the age of 7.
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.
LIRKER, 13 Feb 2018Pixel size also important. Google Pixel which has f/2.0 but still scores incredible on capture... moreYes I acknowledge that size matters lol. But like you said, it is the image processing that counts. And Sony have very disappointing processing in low light.
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.
