Unfortunately its not related with sd. When internal storage is selected the problem continues.

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

So i just recently got an Xz1 off amazon and i was excited to get it because its the last of this sony design which i really like and wanted to see how much nicer the display is.

 

well i was disappointed to find out it has worse white balance than my X it looks more yellowish where the X is slightly bluer but i feel more true to white.

 

on top of that the Sony X gets much brighter for the same brightness level. and testing HDR content side by side my Sony X is able to deliver more details in the shadows.

 

how is this possible when Sony X is not even HDR certified and the XZ1 is supposed to be flagship??

 

did i get a defective unit should i replace it has sony quality gone down this far.

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

Hello I had the same feeling when I upgraded from my xz. After trying to find out which was the difference I saw that th lest generation IPS panels like the x and xz had the colors more saturated almost as the vivid mode on the newer xz1. Like you, in the beginning I felt it was a downgrade but later I can say it was only because I was used to it similar as when people change from an amoled to an IPS, the change is not really because one is worst than the other is only by what they got used to. IPS screen on xperia xz1 is great and it really is HDR. A little more true to life colors and less blue than previous generations but deffinetly an improved screen. Enjoy your device.

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

except this is not true because i have done extensive tests. I have tested vivid modes on both and the vivid mode on the xz1 is way off the charts with way too much saturation. The vivid mode on the sony X does not do anything in fact it largely stays the same. 

 

the X has a perfect balance of not being too saturated and being vivid. With the xz1 it feels like a low resolution yellow tint all over the screen. The xz1 does have slightly less saturated colors but the XZ1 has a greenish/yellowish tint where as with the X i can see more shades of color. 

 

HDR content looks better on my X. my X is able to reveal more details than my xz1 can on top of having better black levels. 

i have either got a defenctiive low quality model or Sony messed up big time on a flagship 2017 phone.

Why XZ1 lacks on hdr? Turning On or Off doesn't make any difference to the shot. I remember that Z3 was more aggressive on that.DSC_4793.JPGManual - no hdr.

 

DSC_4794.JPGManual - hdr forced On. No difference in shadows.
