GrU, 20 Feb 2019Well....chinese over Japanese..... Never! :)) in almost eve... moreFinally someone mentions Kaizen.

Kaizen is great for everything except software development. Kaizen is great for something with very high risk, like building construction, automotive, etc.

But.. Software development has to be fast. The reason why sonymobile cannot compete with korea and china is because of Kaizen.
Kaizen teaches everything must be "following the order". Slow and steady. It is slow, incremental, but constant.

If you implement kaizen in software development.. then.. boom! All Your competitors will left you behind.
They will release their softwares much faster than you. And customers will praise them for doing everything much faster than you.

    I think Mi9 resolves more detail that other 12MP cameras (not necessarily other 48MP sensors doing 12MP photos). But the dynamic range is extremely low. More like pre Pixel 1 standard.

    I think the video quality is pretty amazing. I think Xiaomi should seriously consider working on a High Bitrate Video Log Profile for the Mi9. That could really push it. Or maybe have a Filmic Pro kind of Log.

            We all know Samsung has the second worse selfie, still got #1 . Only Huawei has worse selfie.

              Anonymous, 20 Feb 2019Sony pays DXOmark 2x more than any other brandSony Mobile does not spend money to advertise their phones, why would they pay DxO?

              If they paid DxO, then XA2U and L2 would have won 90 and 84 at least.

              XZ Premium was last flagship tested.

                  I think DXOMarks camera reviews are biased to some extent.because currently the best sony smartphone camera is in the Xperia XZ2 premium...and they didn't reviewed that.Why?
                  If they were truly honest then they should've reviewed the Xperia XZ2 premium.

                      We concluded last year, time and time again, that DxO is absolutely rigged. The newest device was always the best device they ever tested, despite the very dubious components used.

                      Let us all ignore DxO from now on

                                I trust Xiaomi more than i can trust brands like Sony Samsung or Apple.

                                  Sony is no longer brand to die for in present era less and less people use Sony phones.
                                  They are as bad in sales as LG and very soon they can compete with HTC.
                                  And i knew for a very long time Xiaomi becomes top brand.
                                  Thuis is just first step.
                                  More priced flagships like Sony Samsung or Apple doesnt means they are far better.
