Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1!

full 17/19MP should give you the same field of view as the pixel-binned 12/8MP. Pixel-binning works like resizing a large image file to a smaller one, unlike cropping where you throw away the unused pixels. Each pixel in the resulting photo is usually an average of original neighbouring pixels, and this is commonly used to reduce noise.

 

Theoretically pixel-binned version is better due to the noise reduction, but in real life people are getting mixed result, so there's no perfect answer to the question. Try shooting in different resolution to see which you like better I suppose.

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1!

Hey XZ1 users!  XZP user here. 

I was wondering if the the Dialer of the XZ1 supports/ has integrated Google Duo. (Being able to make video calls from the Sony Dialer instead of Duo) 

Also are you satisfied with the Display flash or if you ever use it?  Also does display Flash depend on the brightness of the phone you have set, or does it always max the brightness? 

Lucky guys you are.You have Treble, Display Flash and a new Dialer compared to the XZ1s brother the XZP Slightly frowning Face

Also, which Dialer do you prefer the new one or the old one?

Is it just me, or is the "scn" (scene mode/choise) gone in the camera app on the XZ1?

@Lazaros_K I'm not sure about XZ1 (although I expect it works in the same way), but on my XZ Premium when you tap the contact to pull up its card with details, you'll get an option to call them via Duo, as long as they use it. same with Whatsapp

Dumb question, is there a way to check notifications on the lock screen without triggering the fingerprint failed attempt?

@Owodiran1

Yes, updates are released gradually and timing will differ between markets. But you should make sure that you have the latest software by connecting your phone to a PC with Xperia Companion installed and it will check for updates.
