Ive compared the pictures. Honestly, i see the distorition on XZ1 but i also see in Samsung too.
The only pic that is ridiculous for the XZ1 is the wall one. But the other ones are pretty much the same...

As expected, the distortion is there in close photos.

yeah, it kinda does...

Now that we know that there is distortion I think we are going to see it every time we make a damn photo.
I still pre order my XZ1C, but if the distrtion thing annoys me I'll simply ask for a refund

I find the size of XZ1 ridiculous when it is compared to v30.



The same size body but screen to body ration is ridiculous on XZ1. Sony is expecting XZ1 to sale well but I think they are looking at a flop. I maybe wrong but I've a feeling not a lot of people are going to pick this up over v30, note 8, pixel xl2 and iphones.

Well the bezel of XZ1 is ridiculous. Anyway if there's something to praise XZ1 then it would be the display quality.

Look at the color ! It's so great!

Unfortunately V30's camera and audio(via headphone) beat the XZ1 anyway.

The review is actually quite good this time round, I think they now understand the true quality of the handset in terms of the hardware and software. The could've moaned about the bezels but they had many positives for the 'outdated' design. Battery test was pretty great. I think the ZX1 Compact will get huge praise from them.

Regarding the LG, I guarantee that XZ1 beats it in all areas. Sony has the best video capture with the EIS, great natural colours in daytime photos with loads of detail but only lacking in low light. Speaker quality, battery, speed etc. all better with the Sony.

Is it even noticeable if you mess about with the equaliser or use a premium set of headphones?

V30 should be better in low light. Its not what happened. V30 got bashed by the Verge analises in low light conditions, but I'll wait for the v30 review too.

Audio power has always been lacked in sony devices dont know why. But quality is there. I think LDAC & DSEE HX pretty much gives a good quality for audio enthusiast, thou a DAC would be surely awsome. I dont know why they took it away since the Z3 came.

Well when I compare LG V20 to my XZ I notice the lack of Deep Bass and the impact on the XZ.

I never turn on equalizer because I want to hear the most natural sound, character and the performance of the player.

Yes. I use MDR-1A Limited Edition and ATH-WS1100 with high quality cable. They're good enough to make me hear the difference between each player.

Have a chance to play with the XZ1 today. And I am amazed. I thought that it would be like a XZs, but in fact, its not. It is so much thinner than XZ/XZs that XZ1 just feels natural in my hands. Seriously considering trading this with my XZP.
