weak unboxing from PA, no surprises though.

Phone got released in Taiwan today, a lot of unboxings coming out from there. Those guys get a ton of goodies.

well you are quite right about that. I don't expect it to be perfect but I think it won't dissappoint.

I am happy that the night shots are generally very good, but there is one problem.

The star eater is quite visible, comparing to U12

XZ2P


U12


If you take a look, many of the Scorpio constellation is gone on the XZ2P, even the omega Scorpii becomes a smuge. In contrast, it is very clean on the U12, the double star is clearly visible.

Just received my device today.



Really, I do not think the XZ2P is as bright as the XZ2

Have to check the sunlight eligibility tomorrow!

So far, comparing to the XZ2, I could only say that it's almost the same. It is heavy, but still acceptable. Plus the back is flatter than the XZ2, so it's more stable when used on the table.

However, the SD bug is still there! The SD read speed is less than 18 Mbps!

Also, for some reason, the screen is very yellow. It might be my protector, so I will have to do some fun tuning.

Looks like all screens are tuned towards warmer tones from the factory. I felt the same when I got XZ. My personal preference is for colder gamut, so I will definitely be changing that. How is front camera compared to XZ2?

comparison with XZP. Looks like XZ2P improves on pretty much all aspects of XZP apart from removing 3.5mm jack and thickness. Considering that XZP was one of the best phones of 2017, XZ2P seems to be a worthy successor.

You can turn on auto translated subtitles, Chinese to English works pretty well

Wow, first time in a long while they have been so complementary about a device. The design is the biggest complaint so far but if XZ3 has the dual camera then it looks exciting. Suddenly I'm excited for IFA. The night video is something else though, and watch it back on the 4K HDR screen like a boss.
