Disappointed by the Xperia Z5 camera pictures quality : a critical comparison !

Hi , I am an Xperia Z5 User
Model: E6653

Build Number: 32.0.A.6.200

It's about about waking up Sony until it's not too late. The idea for the pictures below is simple: they represent 100% zooms in comparisons of some of the currently available "heads on" camera tests between Sony Z5 and other models.

I noticed that the camera is taknig a very noisy pictures when I zoom in I see that the pictures are not really sharp like in other available high end smartphones , maybe it's because of bad image processing or lake of OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) or bad denoising algorithms / software .
I hope you fix it in the Z5 and the next Z series and please add more manual controls (Shutter Speed,exposure .. ). Except that the dynamic range and colors are great and beat any other phone on the market .

I have already disscussed this problem with other Xperia Z5 users on the xda forums, Xperia Z5 Section , you can google  .

It'll be useful to post the camera settings on all the devices

Those are pictures taken from an old review.

 

By the way, the ability to control shutter speed could open to some interesting possibilities.

 

Sony made some nice applications like CamerFV quite unuseful by preventing the control of that, and others, parameter.

You should take your own pictures and post them here, if possible compare them with other devices and post them all here.

But why do that if there are many ready samples already taken by Xperia Z5 users ? I don't see any problem with that
my purpose is to wake up sony about the problem that's the main thing .

Even if these are not the posters own, they show without a shadow of doubt, the true quality of the camera on the z5.

 

the few of my own show exactly the same faults, of which I and many others have mentioned in previous threads. This is not the top of the range camera Sony claim it to be.

 

in my opinion this phone with all its other faults should not have been put on the market. It's an absolute disgrace.

 

if it's hardware and not software at fault, then Sony should bite the bullet and recall. Obviously they won't because profit rules.

@TerryQ

 

Exactly , totally agree with you
that is what I am trying to say .. we hope these problems will be fixed by a software update as soon as possible

If not , me and many other Sony  Z5 users will move to another phone of another company .
