While I was investigating XZ1 Review at gsmarena.com, I noticed on the photo samples that the photos are seriously distorted on the straight lines. I will show sample photos compare with S8 samples at below:
If you want to check how serious the distortion problem looks like, I attached the links below to see for yourself.
Sorry for my English.
Best regards my lads...

I wanted to buy this phone but it doesn't make sense to spend on a phone with a crippled camera.
Sony need to communicate and say if they are going to fix this issue or not.

Sony can fix this if they want! I would suggest to stand up each of you and write or phone your local xperia care support. i have done this 5mins ago via chat and said that she should please push this to higher levels. that its a shame that we buy a new product with such distortions. If everybody does this then maybe they will react faster and implement a lens correction profile like samsung did it.

I push all my effort to let the HQ know this and they already know.
The thing I'm concern is what I heard is true or false that HQ gonna fix the distortion through firmware update.

I´ve looked at some information, the regular XZ has a 24mm lens and the never phones has a lens at 25mm but YET the XZ with the 0,1mm wider lens has less distorsion then the never phones with the 25mm lenses... Something is seriously wrong!

Returning mine on Monday to the Carphone Warehouse, no more Vaio due to bad Sony practices, I refuse to buy another Bravia due to the lack of swivel stands and as Xperia seems to get worse and worse it's time to jump ship.
They don't even have dedicated Sony employees operating this forum FFS!

Just got mine Today and compare with my XZ.
Found out that XZ distortion's better
Well... Less expectation always come with less pain.

The black metalbars are straight, in the photo they appeared bending towards the center.
At the same time, the bending is more severe near the center.

S8/S8+ has a switch to activate or deactivate the distortion's correction algorithm.
