But how abou... moreI am only speaking about the camera performance here, but my friend who bought the XZ to replace her old Z3 Compact also experianced some lag in certain apps and low battery live. For me though the most important part of a smartphone is the camera. And off course we didn't believe that the XZ camera would be of less quality then the older Z3. But we could test them together and the result wasn't good.... I can't post any samples here, but I did on the Sony forum, here's the link to that pages (this was page 16 out of 36 already...)
The difference in quality is obvious as you can see. And this was not just an incident. What ever we tried, we could not get the pictures to come out any better then this. With the Z3 that was never an issue, although there are also better smartphone camera's then the Z3, but three years ago it was ok.
iabdul41, 24 Mar 2017Xperia X or Z5?Of course z5 for a higher specs and waterproof smartphone (at least in a paper cuz i don't own both phones so i can't take a conclusion based on my opinion) *CMIIW

I have had the Z1, Z2, Z3, M5 and Z5 Premium in the past. And all have recurring themes of issues and it has been consistent 95% of the time and these are battery life & camera.
After doing almost all known and obvious ways to save on battery life and based on my usage and apps (which hasn't changed much within the past 2 years) I find my Xperia phones struggling by 6pm meaning it's less than 30% which won't even reach by 9pm before it completely dies off.
Camera has an almost eternal issues of noise/grainy/watercolour-type images when zoomed in, weak in low-light situations (partially compensated by the weak single LED flash), slow shutter, slow in processing images and slow in opening the actual camera app.
With a £299 budget I would probably rather have a used Galaxy S7 than a used Z5 or XZ coz of said issues.

I want to know which one tales slightly warmer photos (in Auto mode or Manual), better battery life & very good multitasking skills? I always thought the newer phones (Z5 & XZ) are better.

Please explain what you are up to
Talking from experience: My Z5 takes sharper and less noisy low-light pictures with flash when I capture using shutter key by pressing it very quick.
gixxer, 22 Mar 2017I have the z3 and z5 and the z5 outperforms the z3 by miles. Stop trolling!I am not forcing anyone to believe what I say. Anyone can just look at sample pictures and then judge them selves.
At one point we did own a Z3, a Z5 and the XZ at the same time. So we had the opurtunity to compare. Z3 took the nicest pictures of thes three, but also not more then average quality. It is not for nothing that we both purchesed a phone of a different brand and this camera is way way better. I am not trolling, and I am not the only one who feels screwed by Sony. Again look at this thread here: Complaints just keep comming in...
So if anyone asks me about the camera quality of Sony smartphones I just give them a fair and square awnser.
