And i think i know why their phones take bad photos. I belive the reason is that if they made best photos, other manufactures would make their own camera sensors. And so making their phones take photos they can sell those good camera sensors to others and get more profit then selling their own product. As you all know sony sensors are used in Iphone, Samsung, Xiaomi, LG and others their are few exceptions like ISOCELL from Samsung on some versions. That's why they refused to answer on one intereview about their camera taking bad photos on some interview. They said something like they compress it so that it takes less space. Well Pixel and OnePlus have sony sensors also. So it's a matter of software and lens and image processing. They used plastic lenses till Z5 series, and camera lens playes big rule in image captureing

I really wish Sony could even slightly sharpen up the images with Android Pie update. I have honestly never seen as soft images from a smartphone before, unless we are talking of some cheap models from past years. Sony your fans like you, but you cannot pull off nasty surprises like this or you lose your customers. XZ1 takes so soft photos that I'm suspicious if many of these phones really are faulty and Sony remains silent so people wouldn't return them. My former LG G5 took much better photos no matter the condition. PS. The pictures on this second page people have posted are fine to me, but I don't know if my device is faulty or do my hands shake too much when my photos seem to not correctly focus on the subject. I will try and disable the object tracking and use full 19 MP 4:3 mode from now on if those would help.
