Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Hi viridis,

 

I've Xperia XZ1 which using same camera module and start with android 8.0

 

It still has the same bad distortion as you can see in this thread. So there's no improvement on the oreo update.

Worth noting that when devices "update to.." there is an update with bug fixes etc to the others in same class at same time.

So going off historical updates, when xzp updates, it's very likely xz1, xz1c will get an incremental update.

They did't mention anything about 'distortion issues', and i'm not satisfied. Furthermore a Sony Mobile developer in this thread said XZP and XZs have no distortion issue (at least same as other smartphones)

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

I´ll just wait for the next update to arrive. If nothing changes, i´ll try to return the phone for a refund. I´d even go as far as contacting a lawyer.

I'll do the same. If the next update doesnt fix the distortion I will leave this device.

 

Sony told there would be improvements on camera on Oreo update. From what I understood they were talking about the 3d useless thingy AND maybe the camera app since XZP user doesnt have the option to manual setting of EV ISO and SS (as far as I know) like XZ1. This sounds like improvement. It doesnt sound like bug fixing at all.

Great, i'll sign it, but you should add Sony alredy solved this in video mode, so it's just a matter of porting it to camera mode.

Also, I'll address the letter to Sony's mobile development responsible or something like that, not SONY at a whole.

Maybe because you're considering the current "distortion" as a bug that needs to be fixed, not a side effect of wide lenses that needs to be improved 🤔

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Don't really know what should I call that.

 

As the distortion of Xperia is abnormal.

 

Not a bug for sure. Maybe some kind of a curse...
