Mindprison, 10 Mar 2024I've just bought this phone and I'm returning it ... moreSince when DNG/RAW are heavily processed? Because RAW/DNG main purposes is to retain image data without compressions and processing. If the RAW/DNG has processing on its pictures, it means it is not a real RAW/DNG and that's how it works on dedicated camera.

To have great manual is good and big plus but it's crucial to have great auto and portrait modes for flagship. And they are bad at it that's why most people buying vivo, xiaomi, pixel, samsung and apple instead of this. Other things as well are not that great on this device like device life cycle. Only 2 major OS updates is horrible in 2024. And so on and so on.

      Anonymous, 15 Apr 2024Because they have much better software than sony. Sad story... moreIt's not horrible at all, it's awesome and super versatile but it requires you to have some basic knowledge about photography and videography.

      I just cross shot on Xiaomi 14 Ultra and Xperia 1V both photo and video and differences are aesthetical only. There was no tricky situation where one excelled more than the other. And I didn't (nor ever) I shoot focused static stuff such as closeups of flowers, food, trees, random buildings I shoot live action like 80% of the time. There are some still nature shots but I take them when the light is playing tricks on it and/or when composition is very good.

      If I have to nitpick I would say 14 Ultra has some slight edge in photography while 1V got edge in video. But those are mu subjective findings. I shot both with main sensor in Pro mode without any scene detection/enhancements turned on and manual HDR when needed. Video was shot in 10bit in HLG/Dolby Vision on both, again all manual except focus.

        Niaz, 13 Apr 2024Why dxomark top smartphones uses sony sensors? Why bro?Because they have much better software than sony. Sad story about xperia they have hardware but their software is bad. If others is using sony sensors that doesn't mean sony xperia lineup has the best camera. Because of horrible software sony is barely usable as daily point and shoot, portrait modes are surprisingly bad for flagship device.

            There is a big massive issue with Xperia phones - it's microphone! This and Xperia 10 V have problem with mic sensetivity. All people with whom I had conversation complained about this saying that they can heat me badly.

            Please Google it - type Xperia microphone and you will see how many people looking for solution. Don't waste your money as these phones don't built for the main purpose of the cell phone which is to have a quality audio calls.

                JSK888, 11 Apr 2024It seems that you are a bullcrap. Not Xperia. no. It seems people who bought this xperia flagship can't realize that they wasted a lot of bucks. At least some of them realizes that. :P

                            This phone is purely intended for hardcores. I've been trying to use it for point & shoot photos but it's just not it. Thinking of buying either Pixel 8 Pro or S24 Ultra instead. Also, why does the phone decide for me when to turn on HDR and when not to? This is bullcrap. One of the worst cameraphones I've stumbled across.

So they are probably the best overall for regular users + apple is a sickness. Their eco system is super addicting.

                                    Anonymous, 01 Apr 2024who cares.... it's just speed paranoia Nah. There is a difference between UFS 3.1 and UFS 4.0 especially when you have 200 apps~ installed and a bunch of photos, videos. For regular users there is almost 0 difference but for power users it's a huge downgrade if flagship uses 3.1 instead of 4.0. But I've seen someone mentioned that 4.0 is being used in this device so at least it's not another downgrade compared to other phones.

Overall only one magical video mode is good and manual settings on photo mode is decent.

                                      And another thing it's not worth to pay attention to dxomark :)
