Why can't they just use all the censor area for one great camera and omit those 2 useless instead. We DON'T need 3 compromise cameras.

Dudenoway, 13 Dec 2021Exactly anyway. Its just an excuse for these fan boys. I can see difference between 4k screen and 2.5k and many others. Think about you Samsung and apple fan boys

And it's not even close.

I have no idea why this is, but my Sony phones always seem to overperform on battery life, and they maintain excellent battery life for years. By comparison my Samsung devices often struggle to meet the battery life claimed in reviews, and their battery life seems to degrade quite noticeably after about a year of use.

I use the Sony as my work phone and Samsung as my private phone, so I run then side by side each day. I don't play games or watch videos most days on either phone, so the type of usage is similar. By the end of each day the Sony is usually at around 60% battery, whole the Samsung is usually down to around 30%.

Does any @sonyxperia phone 1III, 5III, PRO I, II,III, IV, V? maybe in 2030? ๐Ÿ˜‰ camera app supports burst mode for RAW+JPG files with full manual control like for example Lumia950XL and other discontinued lumia phones or dslr.

It's for the most hardcore Sony fanboys with too much money to burn.

So hardcore they'll even put up with this shortcoming, quote:

"Battery life is below average."

Forget about the cameras and other specs, if your expensive flagship phone is not having excellent battery life... just quit.

Battery-Storage-Screen, the top three features that shouldn't be compromised for any phones at any price range. Have a slower chip, have crappier cameras, have a cheap plastic body if you want to reduce the costs. Don't compromise the battery, storage and screen quality.

The comparison tool shows how the xperia needs a lot of work.
And by the way, computational photography is everywhere.
Search for Sony's Alpha 1 mirrorless.
It incorporates computational photography.
Xperia needs it and does itโ€”right before you press the shutter.

Doesn't mean it has huge sensor with comprehensive manual controls that a camera doesn't use computational techniques.

Sony Alpha 1 is Sony's flagship mirrorless camera and it was dubbed as the "future of computational photography."

The new Samsung ones do 12-bit in upressed HDR, which is great for dynamic range, and the high bit depths can be superb for editing and working on in post, including increasing details In image without too much deterioration.
