Sony Xperia Z has TFT Display but the new Phones like Galaxy S4 or Note 3 has OLED or Super AMOLED Dispay !!!!
Is there is difference between them ??
Which is Better Display ?? or it doesn't Matter ??
Last night my Z accidentally got set to Superior Auto, a setting i stopped using and havent even tested since the last 3 updates the Z has received. And how did i notice that it was at superior auto? Yes the photos looked so bad and full of noise, even without zooming in. Switched back to Normal mode and mutipoint autofocus, rest set to normal, retook the same photos, what a difference, noise was reduced by tenfolds, its incredible how bad pics the superior auto can produce.
I strongly suggest everyone use Normal mode for Xperia Z, just try the difference and try some settings. I usually keep the autofocus set to multipoint but of course single point is useful some times (as usual just press and hold shutter button to lock focus). Touch focus i dont have that good experience with.
ISO setting can be useful to play with also, as low as practically possible, just dont get too optimistic, setting ISO 100 at night will not work, Z doesnt have long enough exposure times to do that.
One doesnt have to touch any settings, the important is DO NOT USE SUPERIOR AUTO.
Guys Xperia Z Users,
I want to confirm about the release date of 4.3 for Xperia Z Series, first I saw is late November, but now somebody said is Mid Dicember. So what is the date?
zaffron, 17 Oct 2013Last night I received an update on the stock album app. After downloading the update, the app ... moreI also updated to the new Album app 2 days ago and didnt notice any issues. Maybe you should try to delete the album cache or something.
Last night I received an update on the stock album app. After downloading the update, the app became a mess. whenever you scroll it up and down some of the photos become just plain color black. Also, when I open the photos they are pixelized and it will take at least 15seconds before the square pixels are gone. It used to be a smooth app, but now I hate it. Anyone else who has this issue? As much as possible I want to stick with this stock app. I hate downloading photo viewer from playstore and spam my phone with ads. Also, the UI of the stovk sony album app looks so intuitive and cool. Hope they fix it soon..
i have a sony xperia z for 4 weeks and it's very gd phone,battery gd,sound gd, watter proof amazing phone..

Anks, 17 Oct 2013I wanna buy Xperia Z or any other Android phone in the same range Should I go for Xperia-Z or ... moreIt's depends upon ur needs.. Because I owned Sony Z, Note2 , HTC one X.. First of all Z..advantages.. Stylish... Good camera ... Water proof .. Disadvantagest.. Poor sounds on both speaker & headset.. I'm a music lover & even if with third party apps it's disappointed me... Then video.. Low contrast.. Poor interface.. Battery also low Mah... Bar type... It's 5" narrow display... HTC is an overall champion... Then Note 2.. Good broad led display... descent camera. .Crispy sounds on speakers & headset..long lasting battery... Good for hd videos & gaming... But oversized ..Also u can check the Z 1 spec... I think it's better than Z...

Also, install MX Player from the Play store, use that for all video stuff until you upgraded, and try to NOT use the Movies app or the default video player, see if that solves the problem. There were battery draining issues on early firmware due to the Mediaserver that is started by the Movies app. Restart your phone if you have used the Movies app, its the only thing that stops the Mediaserver from draining battery even after you closed the app.
My Z has no problem with battery draining, good battery life, Stamina mode is OFF and its always connected to HSPA/HSPA+ data when im out, and often even when im home (because H+ in our place is twice as fast as our home Wifi)
I just bought Z yesterday and battery drains fast. Stamina mode is on.Is there any way to improve battery life.it is very hard for me if battery doesnt last atleast a day..Neeed an advise........
hai fellas..may i know what is improvement after update to .67??i already got the this notification on my pc companion.im also surveying all commment in xperiablog about this update and many of them says it improve battery life & camera quality..is it true???
