It's interesting that GSM Arena noted that the software for their phone and all other phones that've been tested around the web do not have final software. Curious to see how that affects the camera performance once everything is finalized.

I can't seem to recall, did anyone run a camera comparison between XZ2P and Pixel 2XL

Don't think so but pixel 2 lost already when versus XZ 2

Spoke to a guy and he said that the response to the camera has been excellent, they have been monitoring technical expert views and they believe the camera reviews will be outstanding. While they admit that the XZ2P may not be a looker, research is showing that people are now very interested more so than the 4K or other things like bezel size. There is a hype around this now and while I can't see it selling loads, it sets up for a strong IFA. I managed to hold a dummy and it was just too big for it to be comfortable but I'm suddenly excited about the next Premium phone.

the camera is indeed really good. I've had mine for around 4 days, and it's been brilliant so far. Shooting everything in auto-mode and pictures look amazing. My favourite feature is 4K HDR screen though, everyone who saw the phone were awed at how 4K HDR content looks like on the phone.

Hmm, PhoneBattles is having issues with their XZ2 Premium unit (retail, not pre-production). When recording video it records audio for the first few seconds and then silence.

I haven't encountered that issue, and I've recorded a few 4K/4K HDR/1080p videos. There have been a few bugs though, one is sometimes when you watch HDR content brightness gets maxed out, even though the manual setting is different. Another is my car's infotainment wasn't able to control music playback after I have connected my BT headset. Restart helped and so far so good. I hope they will be quick to fix some of these issues with July/August patch.

Can't wait until monochrome and bokeh are released, I hope Sony can deliver a well designed portrait mode.

The brightness not being maxed out sounds more like the real problem rather than it being maxed out when watching HDR. The brignetness maxes out on my TV by default, and it does the same thing to my Galaxy S9+.

huh you're actually right, it's always maxed out. Are you able to take HDR screenshots on other devices? I'm not familiar if it's possible at all, but currently HDR screenshots on XZ2P are just black screen for some reason.

It's been well over 3months now, has this thing been released yet?

Just wondering how this will work with IFA nearing, or are they not releasing a flagship in the 2nd half?

Just updated my phone this morning, and we now have the Bokeh and BW modes.

And now, the UI is VERY confusing, especially for the video mode, it now has a seperate button for black and white mode, slow motion, HDR and high sensitivity.



Here are a few photos using the BW mode
