Lex79, 18 Nov 2015Yeah that link doesn't work, as once again I am in the dark... moreIf you are paid to post comments like this, you should be fired. Why? Because Sony can see their phones weaknesses and improve.
If you are a normal user then Sony and Sony fan should thank you for pointing out things for refinement
Think about it!
Now I let you know, because Xperia phone is a step ahead
Of course, there are many things to do, but wait till the next Z phone :-)

my point is simply this, there is more than one opinion out of the quality of the camera on the Z5 series, and if you take consensus of those opinions you'll find the results mixed.

Pointing this out is not trolling, neither is it defaming (not that I am entirely sure what that is supposed to mean)

These are discussion forums, they are for people to both praise and critique aspects of mobile tech, agree with those opinions or do not agree and certainly argue you point.

But don't stoop the the childish antics of throwing the 'troll' accusation at everything that moves simply because you don't like may say.

So whilst I'm happy to respond to others, I am not going to waste my time on you.

What dont you get?
Read comments on dxo mark z5 review page, or even your comment: Samsung, Lg, iphone and nexus users are furious there...denying the resulting score....
Why do you only include Sony fans here, if not for trolling only?

It is clear, Sony Z5 surpass other brands and have the best image. While in the crop images the Iphone 6s get the most blur result.

Xperia Z5 also have the new camera UI and fastest hybrid autofocus, so it already surpass other competitors in many field.

Dual heatpipes, 16 Nov 2015Rely to Lex97 Nice opinion. I only believe myself. ... moreAs a rule I try not to discredit the results of tests done by legitimate sources, DXOMark is one such legitimate source and am sure they can more than justify their results. I won't question or criticise those results, was just pointing out that there are other sources out there and opinion is divided.

But you raise a good point, it may not be point you were trying to make however. You see I have been reading this site for a long time, as such I can remember a time when previous Xperia devices didn't fare so well against the competition as far as DXOMark were concerned. As a result both the DXO site and its testing criteria would widely criticised by fans of Sony.

Now however the DXO side is suddenly every Sony fans best friend.

Tell me, why do you think this is?????? Why the sudden charge of heart????

799 euro i Europe, but not in Poland. In pre order cost almost 4000 PLN that give you 940 euro, and earphones not incluted = robbery >:(

Rely to Lex97

Nice opinion.

I only believe myself.

I hate trolls that send by Samsung Iphone and China phones, they defame Sony, they also can not provide a valid prove.

I post a lot of link here, you can compare, you can take you own decision to not believe, but remember next time if DxOmark test n show your phone is winner, please don't believe it, you must believe the ppl trolling, because the trolling is more powerful.

I know that is will probably get me nothing but a torrent of abuse, you Sony fans not being the most level headed bunch out there and all, but I see a lot of people providing links to youtube vidoes as evidence of the supposed superiority of the Z5 series camera's.

Now granted the majority of these links are coming from known Sony cultists or those crazy enough to put their nicknames as components or features of the Z5 range, but come on!

It would be easy enough to post a number of links to various youtube based reviewers that have tested the Z5 camera (or any one of the range) and found them to be quite a disappointment or at best to be a mixed bag.

Taking into account multiple such sources, you could conclude that outside of the DXOMark test, the general opinion regarding the performance of the Z5 camera is quite mixed.

However regarding the rumours that Sony will back out of the Mobile business, even though I have never been there biggest supporter in this area, I would hate to see Sony throw in the towel. Sony bring a lot of unique design and feature elements to the mobile space, water-proofing, and probably the only serious and worthwhile attempt at a 'compact' version of a flagship on the market are chief among these.

That said I think it's likely that we are still going to see Sony struggle, this Z5 Premium and it's ludicrous 4k screen is little more than a gimmick, and will do next to to nothing to change Sony's fortunes.

Sony has made it clear that they have NO intention to shut down Xperia. Only recently they made a new mobile manufacturing factory in Taiwan. If they were closing they wouldn't have build it. Trolls like you hope that Xperia closes down, but keep dreaming ;-)

Keep crying you say? Sony mobile will shut down in 2016, and i'm not joking. They lose 1million dollars every single day.

Once Again.. The people have already voted for this Z5 is the best smartphone of the year... some people really cant get over about their flagship phone that lost to sony Z5... keep crying people... keep crying out loud...

Tann Hauser, 14 Nov 2015About z5 camera: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_fRFqFeQ6tMI also notice that the Samsung Note 5 get faded color and white balance incorrect in some of the result, the LG G4 white balance is the worse between them, the Iphone 6s looks quite blur in all captured.
Z5 is the best, it put others at shame or I call it "black off", especially in the video record in low light... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_fRFqFeQ6tM

I don't know why some people nag about the price of Z5 premium it's Not a budget phone it's a special product for special people who are wise enough to understand that there's no comparison between SONY 4k ips display and Samsung Amoled,simply because it's SONY. It's very simple why don't you understand, it's a premium and it's SONY,if you want some plastic toy go for galaxy
