I bet someone from India or China could do a far better job at a fraction of the price used to hire those Swedes. The hardware is good, it's obvously the software (postprocessing) which is the problem. Also, proper OIS does help, especially in a low-light environment, not proprietary crap digital stabilization (Steadyshot). Maybe Sony Japan HQ does not care: it makes plenty of money from games and movies etc. Or maybe Sony Japan HQ deliberately doesn't want Xperia phones to steal businesses away from Sony's DSLR cameras. And you wonder why Xperia phones hasn't got a bigger market share.
