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.

Hi! I as many others liked some of the features that were in the previous Sony KitKat build. I'd really like to see these features added in future updates: - "Adaptive brightness" button next to brightness slider in pull down menu - More settings to "Record screen" feature. I'd would mainly like to have an option to turn off the microphone. To be able to record the sound what comes through the phone would be also nice (kind of like "stereo mix" or "wha u hear" on Windows) - Easier volume adjusting and sound profiles. Lollipop profiles are fine, but accessing them is a pain. If you listen to music with headphones and press volume up or down on at home screen, it only adjusts the volume and you don't have any way to change the sound profile to "silent" or "priority" etc. All this would be simpler if the profile menu would appear always by tapping the speaker icon at the top (check picture) Also it would be ever greater to see the new manual camera controls on Z3 and Z3 Compact like in Z3+. Thank you Sony for this great smartphone. Your UI is still the best for me. Pictures: http://aijaa.com/bT9YET http://aijaa.com/pVeZV8 http://aijaa.com/YZd6ht
