Same problem for me, just bought it Friday on Amazon France. I'll try a standard exchange but if the replacement has the same problem I will ask for a complet refund and bye bye Sony Slightly frowning Face build date 15w42

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

^ I tried this, and they told me you cannot request a phone manufactured during a particular date. Official Sony online website.

 

After nearly 4 months of repeatedly getting Z5 Compacts and returning them, and even getting one repaired, I've finally decided to get a refund. Even after the repair, while the blur was rectified to some extent, the camera lens is horribly distorted. I'm not sure people understand there's another side to this issue. The camera suffers from pincushion distortion.

 

For some reason, this camera does *not* correct for lens distortion. This means that ALL of your images are warped, and straight lines do not appear straight. Here's an example, after I got my Z5c back from repair:

 

The top & the sides of the shelf look warped.

 

You can also see this in raphistoley's images just a couple of posts above. The horizon appears curved and wavy.

 

It's a real shame. This phone is otherwise amazing in every respect, the only sub 5" device sporting high-end components. It's truly let down by its camera, supposedly the best feature of this phone.

Corners being blurred are normal, don't worry

Xperia Z5 Compact issues?

Is there yet any problem in Xperia Z5 Compact device? I ask it because I see some forums talk about camera problems (blurry photos and problems with the update to android 6). Thanks.
PS: Please I need some different replays.
