I have some negative review about Xperia XZ and also continue the Z series next year

Sony are you kidding me you all discontinue the Z series and introduce this X series which doesn't come with 4K video camera feature, Screen Recording, Small apps which is included in Z series but not X series and last time XZ was suppose to be Z6 which you all don't want to call it and next year no Z series too? I hope you guys continue the series Z series (January to June) and X series (July to December). Angry Face

XZ missing a lot of features

firstly, there's no more screen recording function. secondly there's no more small apps. and lastly, xz Android 7.0 loses otg function. i did tried otg on the Android 6.0 and it works just fine. this nougat update doesnt support otg as it always select 'supplying power to the usb attached' which I'm unable to select other options

I agree with you on this, it'll be nice to have an integrated screen recording app but there are great options on the playstore, embrace Android

 

Small apps: that's a Google restriction 

 

Do elaborate

Otg works fine on 7.0
Connect USB and select detect USB from quick menu

Hi!

This option is missed too?

Return to the next update?

Hello Xperia users, why there are only screenshot option by long pressing the power button ? Did Sony will restore that option ?
I'm really desappointed, come on Sony, make us dream like before.

Missing Z camera features: Multi-camera, Face In

In Z3 I had these Xperia camera apps:

http://blogs.sonymobile.com/tag/face-in/

 

In XZ they seem to be missing.

 

Are they going to migrate for XZ or should we add them to the list of missing Z features?

 

It’s sad to be counting missing features on the "flagship" device, we should be discovering new features and improvements.

I understand that you liked those cameras but

Also, those apps were released before the camera 2.0 but why don't you contact Sony directly regarding this. Keep in mind that the Xperia XZ was not advertized with such cameras. But, you have an android device, embrace the playstore

Re: Missing Z camera features: Multi-camera, Face In

Hi uliwooly,

 

I have two Android smartphones, a Z3 to sell and a new XZ missing lots of Z3 features, as the lack of these two camera apps.

 

This forum is moderated by Sony, so this might be a good place to discuss this issues.

 

There are several missing Z features or features changed for worst in XZ.

 

We should be discovering new functionalities and improvements, not counting missing Z features. In several aspects, we are moving back to models before Xperia Z. Other brands are moving forward copying Sony features like waterproof and good cameras.

 

Unfortunately, for sound and vision fans it’s now easier to move to other brands.
