@CerberusSco

Android Central
Android Authority
CNET

These are also major tech sites.
Also if you need pictures with blur issues to post up on the YouTube video you intend to make then I'll give you permission to use the ones I have. I've taken plenty of photos with prominent blur.

I'm also going to request further and better particulars of the conditions under which blurring occurs, a copy of the report by their experts and what their expected performance parameters are!

 

Those other sites. I will contact in due course.

 

Thanks again peeps :smileysmileythumbsup:

Take one in better light for checking the blur.

Funny how there's soooo many user complaints, sooo many examples, even big name sites are saying the same things and yet the only people who are insisting there's no issue, is Sony themselves. Yes, we're all still hopeful that 6.0 will fix everything but IF it doesn't, i'm pretty sure there's going to be many more lawsuits and people dumping Sony handsets and that will pretty much be the end of the Xperia line...if it wasn't already dying.

I'm just going to compile a list of links to forums or sub reddits and webpages, that highlight the issues people are experiencing with blur. Some sites linked to, may also contain reviews.

here may be other sites/forums/blogs/reviews too. If you want me to add any others to the list that I have missed, then feel free to let me know.

On the other hand Fony. Aside from the users here complaining about blur on their photographs, are you also telling me that every single person that has left comments/posts/feedback on these other sites are also wrong and their cameras are in actual fact, fine by Fony's standards?

Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

Hahaha - my Sony folder had like 100+ unread mails because it's my thread... uhm

First of all -> Thank you CerberusSco and everyone else who keeps pushing this topic. I think they won't do anything about the Z5 series and just sit it out until the Z6 comes to the shelves.

The second thing that grinds my gears is that no one at https://www.reddit.com/r/shotonandroid posts with a Z5... this is hilarious considering it's supposed to be one of the best smartphone cameras out there and the "dxomark results".

My advice for you guys... If you can adapt to bigger phones grab something that better fits your needs. An LG G4 for example Winking Face Winking Face

Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

Hi everyone,

 

I just happen to stumble on this forum as I am checking all the reviews of Z5. I didn't read everything in this thread and just started from page 40. This is very disappointing because I'm really looking forward to buy the Z5P.


I also saw the camera samples from Android Authority and it seems they don't have any problems with their unit unlike Pocketnow's which is very noticeable.

 

Anyhow, I'm going to a Sony store (Dubai) later to check their units and will ask if they have received similar complaints.
