Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

@Hobden87 do you use a screen protector? it could be covering the proximity sensor, which might be causing the black screen during the call. did you peel off the plastic sheet that's supposed to protect the phone when it's being shipped in the box?

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

No screen protector and yes I peeled off the plastic sheet! Lol I don't even have a case on the phone The thing is as it doesn't do it every time it is pointless taking it back to carphone warehouse or sending it in for repair as, like most of these little niggles, they will not happen when you are trying to show it so I just have to get on with it. Does anyone else have a basically in effective camera in low light too?

1. No. I would never pre-order a phone, reviews are too important.

2.US

3. Microsoft Lumia 950

4.the camera is the closest I've found to 950 quality, but could still be improved. Sharpening needs to be toned down and Raw support should be added.

5. Sure.

I like the phone it is fast and has a quality feel and an amazing camera.  However I am going to have to give it up for the simple reason it does not offer raw processing for its camera. Why oh why has sony left this feature out?

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

All I really wanted in Australia was the regular XZ in Glacier Blue. After saving up I settled on an XZ Premium in Chrome because I loved my Z3 and this felt like the successor. I must say I feel my Z3 was a better value phone. A feature I really wanted to use a lot is the 960fps Which I don't use so much because of the Super quick timing you need along with bright light required to get a clear image. That aside, the phone looks really nice. Definitely would have liked the choice of something non reflective, this is a finger print magnet. As with my Z3 and other Sony phones I love the dedicated Camera shutter button which was one of the main reasons I stuck with the Sony. It is a fun point and shoot device. I am disappointed the double tap to wake up feature is gone. Fingerprint scanner is no where as effective as Samsung and LG. From the get go the phone had been Lagging and often doesn't respond to camera wake up or screen on.  Also I can see the vertical lines that make up the 4K screen. So honestly, I had alot more fun when I went from Apple to a Z3, This time around I felt the price for what you get is too high and the speaker volume is way too low. I love the style of sony phones, the shape is very unique to the brand. I love the quality of the photos this phone takes and to sum up would take some convincing not to look elsewhere next time around. I would be very interested to get involved in any surveys relating to development of future devices as I want to see Sony kick butt with their often underrated phones.

Re: XZ Premium owners - Your initial impression

    Did you pre-order your Xperia XZ Premium? No

    In what country do you live? New Zeland
    What was your previous phone? Nokia N9
    What do you like most about your new phone? built in SIP functionality (will probably go back to the N9 due to the removal of the built in SIP in Oreo)
    Occasionally we contact end-users for the purpose of product development. Would this be of interest to you? Maybe
