Can Sony’s ‘Honami’ outshine the LG G2?

by XB on 7th August 2013

in Rumours, Videos, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL, Xperia Z1

LG G2_1LG has just announced its new flagship in the form of the G2 (D802), it is probably one of the company’s biggest launches in years and there’s no doubt the handset has some very attractive features. What you immediately notice when you look at the handset is that there is hardly any bezel surrounding its 5.2-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 resolution and 423PPI. The bezel on the side is just 2.65mm thick. From the looks of it, we’re sure it takes the Xperia ZL’s crown of “highest screen size to phone size ratio“.

The LG G2 is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon chipset, 2GB RAM – pretty much what you would expect from any new flagship launch right now. However, it also houses a 3000mAh battery in its chassis which is mighty impressive. The LG G2 also uses Graphic RAM (GRAM) for more efficient energy usage, LG says that this increases overall usage time on the device by approximately 10 percent.

LG have also done something unusual with the volume/power buttons and placed them on the back of the handset just under the camera module. LG says that their research indicates it is more intuitive for users on the back. Other features include a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and 1080p 60fps video recording as well as a front 2.1MP camera.

The LG G2 will launch with Android 4.2.2 and have dimensions of 138.5 x 70.9 x 9.1 mm. LG says the handset will launch over the next two months starting in South Korea followed by North America, Europe and other key markets.

The question we have for you today, is can Sony’s upcoming flagship, codenamed Honami, compete with the LG G2? There’s no doubt that LG has improved its design, although the curves still look a little Samsung Galaxy-esque to our eyes. Despite this, there is no denying it has some interesting features, especially its near-zero bezel.

Putting this into perspective, LG has managed to squeeze a 5.2-inch display into a chassis measuring 139 x 71mm, which is incidentally the same sized chassis of the 5-inch Xperia Z, ignoring the thickness. Judging by leaked photos, Honami will be larger than the Xperia Z and is also rumoured to have a 5-inch display. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Honami is rumoured to also carry a 3000mAh capacity battery.

Sony ‘Honami’ is also expected to sport a Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) chipset with 2.2GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM. However, the camera is expected to be upgraded to a 20MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor with Sony G Lens and BIONZ image processing engine. We don’t know whether OIS is on the cards, however.

We look forward to IFA on 4 September for further details on Sony’s next device, but given what (we think) we know about Honami, has Sony done enough to compete with LG’s latest offering? Would you ever consider buying a LG smartphone? Does Sony have anything to worry about here? We’d love to hear your views below.






  • Kien D. Nguyen

    Looks like a SS Galaxy

  • Akshay Gupta

    It’s an amazing phone. A good design. I just hope Sony don’t repeat the same thing that happened in 2012 with Xperia T. The Xperia S was a way bigger hit. So before you fanboys start disliking my comment I would like to say I’m a fanboy myself of Sony. But I don’t think so ‘Honami” will be better than the G2. It surely will give G2 a run for its money.

  • M Usman

    You know what. Not bad from LG. Who would have thought LG would have made a comeback. Will Honami best it, not sure as now there’s extra offerings on the table. Either way it will affect Sony Samsung HTC sales. Maybe not by a great margin but it will.

  • The Loyalist

    Too much LG in this forum now…show me honami!

  • naeemh123


  • cp2020

    Well Honami isn’t there yet so kinda hard to answer the question. LG has no style. It’s completely tasteless. Whatever they put in it won’t make it to appear any nicer to me. Sorry… ‘bag of shite’ looking phone.

  • ytaru

    Wow the blog author has finally given in. After some posts that depict negative things about the Xperias, now comes this post highlighting a flagship from a competing company.

    Can’t blame the author, though. Sony hasn’t been given their best. Their displays are still inferior. Even the Xperia Z Ultra’s display does not come toe to toe with the competition’s. The author seems fed up with Sony’s refusal to compete properly.

    Recent Honami runors even make it seem less exciting now.

    Bigger bezels
    Bigger overall phone size
    Bigger MP count with small sensor
    Vanilla-like OS without additional features like the ones other companies are offering
    High price

  • ash

    It looks like GS4 and Nexus 4 had a baby

  • LancerEX

    I really wish Sony would finally solve their problems in camera quality, and also use their expertise in Cyber-shot cameras. The addition of OIS may not sound “innovative” since most companies have joined the bandwagon already, but it would be a great feature to add. :)

  • abbas

    surley honami put G2 in shame. even so far ,specification , design and ….of rumor honami is better.(20mp cam, Triluminos display, better glass and omnibalance design, ip57certification, micro SD slot, same battery,same chipset with surely better scores than other manufactures as sony done with same chipsets so far , lovely media features and walkman app ,better build quality and so on)

  • Sanoj

    no one can’t beat Sony’s unique designs

  • DiyaGGD

    You will never know unitll the announcement………

    I think most of the smartphones will be announced arount IFA will have the same internal specs such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and etc… but the main differences will be in the…
    1.Design : which Sony always shine in
    2.Software Features: Sony has a challenge in this one
    3.UI: Sony’s UI is great but with some modifies will be the best

    anyway I;m looking forward for 4 September :D

  • Samir Sogay

    No matter how good they make a phone but have you ever heard of an LG Fan boy?

  • evolutionx1

    Nexus 4?

  • sfordesign

    i thought i was looking at samsung galaxy s III/IV in this post.. anyways, they both got the same design idea that was inspired by pads for menstruation

  • Maxman

    This post contains so many wrong facts, I don`t even know where to start.

    -MP isn`t all. 13 MP is WAY more than you need. A full HD Display actually displays only 2MP. + Software processing is also very important.

    -ip57…Yeah… I think after the latest news we don`t have to talk about that…
    -Micro SD is also exchangable on the G2
    -XZ Chipsets actually is weaker than it`s high-end competitors in practical use AND in Benchmark test. (Not that benchmarks say anything about the actual difference in practical usage.

    The only thing I agree with you is the Design-point.

    The G2 looks cheap and ugly as hell. (at least on the back)

  • Evita

    is largely inspired by Galaxy Nexus

  • Cristi13

    It’s really an awesome phone by Lg. I still don’t about honami but I hope this time we will really see “the best of Sony” or they actually can’t do better.

  • LG shitphone

    You JOKING right ? THIS is ONE ugly shit !

  • Felix

    I don’t see a reason to buy any LG as long as their software is so buggy and you don’t get any support. Might as well buy a Chinese phone for half the price. Still, I hope this phone will give Samsung a punch.

  • Evita

    20% differences in benchmark is just damn barely noticeable in real life, if you would mean that shite S4 Pro and SD600 argument is practically same chipset, and the latter has slightly overclock one.

  • Evita

    Sony need to voice little stronger in software department, they’re now too focus on their entertainment as main selling point. Unfortunately the services still very limited markets by now.

  • Evita

    It’s practically resemble of GS4, so no buy for me.

  • Emetas

    Is it possible to Honami come out in Europe in October or November? If no, I’m thinking to take Z Ultra.

  • Mac

    I want to see a waterproof Xperia, bezel less and no bigger than ZL!

  • santhosh

    Sony – when u introduce new phones make the wallpaper colorful (its shows the display quality). In xperia z ultra wallpaper is totally waste(white shade is appear in up and down – even in xperia z). Same thing is appeared in the all ads. whatever u introduce TRILUMINOS™ Display technology its totally waste when the people see this wallpaper.

  • Marinko Agic

    lg always have washed colours photo

  • abbas

    1:yes mp is not all but new tech and G sensor will surely make diffrences more visable, and2: G 2 will not include expandable storage in international model{refer to gsmarena} and 3: just refer to benchmark scores of lg optimus g and xperia z with same processor and even highest resolution of xperia z, and in other models, like xperia s vs sensation xe, xperia t vs optimus vu and htc one s and many other examples

  • karamelakimo

    i think no company will be able to beat honami this year
    but i wish hoanmi come with some software programes

  • nidou bossy

    Nice features but there where you STOP: Honami is unbeatable

  • Hritik Bhimani

    honami is class apart … g2 is a right step for LG but doesnt havve enugh oomph n WOW factor to lure me away from SONY .make beleive

  • Purnama

    Xperia Z vs Fashion

  • Amsakanna

    Most important point.

  • The Loyalist

    – 20MP with 1/2.3″ size sensor (Look at Galaxy camera) (XZ 1/3.06″)
    – new jpeg algorithm provided by Sony Camera Division

  • Utsav Shah

    Sony has to get stronger perticularly in camera segment.
    We know that xperias take great pics but not as great as others in terms of details.
    pictures(mostly landscapes) taken with xperia devices have tons of noise reduction.
    And moreover the new trend OIS.

    I am afraid Honami will feature OIS.

    Good Luck Sony!

  • ver jaina

    lol exactly what i was thinking all this while :p

  • Volkan

    Sony already outlined itself without the competency of other brands.

  • tk;o


    We need to emphasize this! Who’s the stupid designer/marketer who thought of using that wallpaper? We’ve seen how awful things went with the XZ and yet they’re doing the same with the XZ Ultra. Wasting the supposed improvements they introduce. I was okay with the 2012 xperias because it was just that blue thing and it looked cool because you can’t see fading-out effects.

    hope sony realizes this. they’ve been stupid for too long.

  • spade

    Instead of well produced camera maybe, unless if Honami doesn’t come with OIS, that will be a total disappointment imo…in that case there will be no more Xperias for me.

  • spade

    I think that was Google’s design.. :/

  • Umar Khan

    are they F***in insane putting volume rocker keys at the back …. wtf has happened to the world, first Justin Bieber then Nicki Minaj then this …… F*****

  • The TET


    Don’t worry too much about the design but definitely need more SMART software features (like Moto X for example)

    It would be so cool as well if Sony will redesign the UI and add 3D effect (like LiveArea UI and iOS7)

    p.s. Make.Believe

  • cp2020

    I like my rectangular XZ. I just look at LG and I feel nothing. Same old shitesung like look with a different logo. Actually quite surprised that LG is doing as good as it does on the market. I look at Sony and first of all i know it is Sony. Second I feel like someone put some work into designing the phone, gives it a soul. Third I feel like i want to meet this phone, see what it can do and how does it feel. Good design is a magnet for a good eye. It’s an art…Art Sony is very good at. Just personal opinion.

  • Helder Rodrigues Lucas

    Sorry LG fanboys but I actually laugh when I watched this G2 pictures, now I am very very seriously asking you: what, in the name of, are you doing???? What kind of message are you passing to your consumers LG? Honami, Lumia 1020, even the Huaweii P6, iPhone 5, HTC One and…….this???? It’s the abortion brother of the Galaxy S4…give it up LG, I’ll still believe in your air condition systems and your TV’s but STOP EMBARASSING YOURSELFES, please!!!

  • Maxman

    1:G Sensor is something I would`nt really count as plus cause` till it`s released i think of it as a marketing gag. After all Exmor R/RS isn`t really superior to other smartphone cams. It`s exactly the same with the “reality display” after all it`s just a 1080p Screen with bad viewing angles (Though I don`t mind it) And Mobile Bravia engine is after all just over-saturation. I think the G Sensor is just a new marketing gag so that they can say :”look, we made our camera SO MUCH better, we even gave it another name !!)

    2 : Ok, after searching on the internet I could`nt really find an answer, I saw as much sites reporting it does have an expandable storage as the ones who said it hasn`t. Don`t really know whats right here.

    3 : Maybe you are right with the superior benchmarks on the same SOC`s but after all Sony is always one step behind in terms of having the newest processor but still offers it`s Handset for the same Price as other Smartphones with the newest SOC`s. So even if you`re buying a Handset with the same processor as the Z you will get it MUCH cheaper.

    I`m sorry, I really don`t want to hate on Sony but it`s so hard after all I`ve been trough with my Sony Smartphones.
    I love my Xperia Z and it`s design but I`m so frustrated, because this is my 4th Sony (ericsson) Handset in 4 Years I have to send to repair because it lacks of build quality.

    X10 – headphone jack suddenly stopped working
    Arc – Sudden death, did`nt turn on anymore + hair crack on the top
    S – Yellow tint issue, part of the illumination light on the menu button stopped working after about half a year.
    and now Z – loose backplate, not water resistant anymore

  • Babylonbwoy

    Have to admit specs are good but as we haven’t seen the official photos of Honami (and confirmation of definitive specs) it will be hard to say which one is better than the other. Also prices will be important. But I still won’t get the LG, out of question!
    Edit : went to LG looking at the photos : a square with rounded angle and big display, it’s all I can says even if specs are good once again! Not sexy enough to make me doubt…

  • Babylonbwoy

    HTC sales are already affected, if I remember it’s their worst Q2 in 10 years for the company

  • Babylonbwoy

    Agree, tried it 5 seconds and directly to trash!

  • Babylonbwoy

    ah ah!

  • leon mansour

    easly sony can outstand it !
    and no one talks how the lg is plastic!

  • xperiasl

    The thin bezzel is nice, but the design is shit.. Super ugly

    And the most stupid thing is power button on back
    Go home LG you drunk

  • Babylonbwoy

    possible yes.

  • surethom

    Smaller than the Z would be nice.

  • surethom

    Camera is in a way better position than the recent Xperias corner camera sensor, I would be way way happier if the Honami had a Xenon flash.

  • Daniel Rosca

    are you paid by sony to say this?

  • Daniel Rosca

    honami is not on the marchet to make such propaganda….

  • roeshak

    Very impressive from lg. Slim bezels and phone dimensions are impressive.
    Look out for when this phone is relaunched as the nexus 5. If Google decide to sell at a very discounted price like they did the nexus 4, then that thing will sell like crazy.
    Honami may have better overall specifications but Sony need to stop with all this bigger phones business.
    Huge bezels are ugly. Period!!!!

  • Mac

    yeah but ZL is still just a bit 2 big and xperia Z is way 2 big!

  • Rene Pedroso

    This Sony app really showcases the display and features of any Sony mobile device

  • Killian Khoo

    Actually Sony have getting better in software optimizing for their phone hardware.
    But that I think only can be seen from benchmark where Xperia Z Ultra with S800(Only up to 2.2Ghz)
    While S4 LTE-A with S800 (up to 2.3Ghz)
    In benchmark Xperia Ultra is 33000+ while S4 LTE-A near 30000~
    I not sure about the real world usage ..

    *sorry for bad english*
    I didnt have any sony smartphone but will buy as soon as I can earn enough for it xD

  • siber storm

    It has the most gorgeous IPS screen available. And it is a whopping 5.2″ with thin bezels that make it the same footprint as a Galaxy S4. The screen alone destroys the Honami handily. The Xperia Z had a terrible screen. The recently released Z Ultra is better, but still isn’t even IPS and still has viewing angle issues and the colors are all wrong. Honami won’t be anywhere near as good as the LG display. The contrast actually looks almost as good as an AMOLED, without the pixellated look.

    Camera is anyone’s guess. Sony ruined the Xperia Z camera even though it trotted out all this fancy tech jargon and whatnot. The Z Ultra obviously has a heavily compromised camera to meet thinness requirements. Placing 20MP in an undoubtedly small sensor from the looks of it sounds disastrous. You can’t defy physics. The phone is still thin and the space and lens on the upper left is small. It will be a small sensor. OIS needs space as well for the ball bearings, so I am guessing it has no OIS either. At least with the G2, the camera should be predictably as good as any other high end phone, with the added benefit of OIS.

    Ergonomics is pretty obvious. Sony’s boxy designs have always been at the very bottom. If you like the boxy look, its form over function.

    I have always found the thin and small side buttons hard to find and push. And they trigger easily in my pocket. The back buttons look very intriguing. They are very large which I love. And you can hold onto the button one to open the camera WHILE you are pulling the camera out of your pocket. You won’t have to reposition your hand either. Even if its not perfect, I want LG and other manufacturers to continue this trend and try to perfect it.

    And of course the LG skin is far better than whatever Sony can muster. Sony can’t even acknowledge its own wallpaper is emphasizing how bad the black levels on its screens are. And the fonts are threadbare and ugly and the UI in general looks very oversharpened. Ignoring all the gimmicks, LG has actually brought some very useful things to Android. Customizable on-screen buttons OMFG why didn’t Google implement this long ago? Text links for webpages that are more robust than stock ANdroid for opening apps. GRAM for saving power. The only good software feature I’ve heard from Sony is their Stamina mode, which is just a glorified power saver app. There’s a million in the play store.

    And most importantly of all. AVAILABILITY. The LG G2 will be available in weeks, all over the world, and on ALL four major carriers in the US. Sony can barely muster a presence in Europe, let alone some shelf space five months later in the US on just one of the smaller carriers.

  • Mac

    If the Honami is going to be smaler than the Z, reduces them bezels and add the Walkman chip as it should have, then LG is out of business! N yeah the G2 looks very simular the sgs Siv. Though I like the idea of putting the volume rockers at the back, but when camera zoom it’s just not that fun anymore..

  • siber storm

    Boxes are easy to make. Especially in MS Paint.

  • siber storm

    Congrats to Sony for trying to be very open about their terrible black levels. The dark wallpaper and dark UI really nailed it! An A+++ for honesty and transparency.

  • siber storm

    LG doesn’t need a comeback. They are in the top five. Sony, however, isn’t even on the list. They have only themselves to blame. Last year was outdated hardware, washed out screens, and poor availability. This year has more modern hardware, but still washed out screen and poor availability. And pricing is ridiculous. Sony still wants to stay niche I imagine.

  • Do you have any clue on what you’re on about? There is no “G Sensor” it’s G Lens, more like Carl Zeiss and not a sensor like Exmor R/RS. And it’s down to software for the Exmor, Oppo Find5 manage to take better picture because of the software, Sony like to compress photos (a lot) that’s why it loses quality.

    It’s not about using old SoC, S4 Pro is still fast for today’s standard. And it received a high scores on benchmark because Sony actually optimized it. Much like the Moto X which is using, what basically is, S4 Pro with 2 extra cores for 4.3

  • siber storm

    You just have awful taste thats all. If you consider a rectangular box as the pinnacle of design. A two-year old could make that in MS Paint.

  • DStyle

    What I can see it is another Galaxy phone lookalike. I’m sure Sony can handle this G2 phone easily.

  • Top five of what? Your list?

  • siber storm

    Can you really blame a Sony fanboy for being hypocritical? The whole point is they have no sense. Go back a year ago and they will bash LG for their boxy designs as well. But when Sony does it, it’s “sublime”. They can even justify the Xperia T, one of the ugliest and blandest phones imaginable. It’s all about brand loyalty. Not the actual design. If Sony came out with a phone the size of a telephone book that caused cancer, they would also deny it.

  • Xyor

    Now you said LG’s UI is better, then basically none of other matters.

  • Xyor

    Oh my, my bad. Didn’t see your comment about Sony’s design.

  • Faisal Armand

    Just judging from the rumoured specs alone, Honami will definitely outshine this g2. That’s it

  • ray

    Agree with you. A gorgeous display with non so attractive wallpaper. That grayish colour on top and above of the wallpaper make it looked washed out although its not.

  • Billy de Fretes

    large sensor, bionz image processing , walkman chip, good speaker, thin (8 mm acceptable) will crush G2 and others..

  • ryq24

    After sale service is important and LG’s service is poor so I will never ever buy their phones!

  • SC

    It would seem that Sony patented a rectangle

  • SC

    Sony needs to shrink the Honami bezels similar to ZL

  • nidou bossy

    I’m so fucking fan of Sony and they don’t have to pay me to support them among all the rest of brands.

    Sony is the best and always will be. If my words are to hard on u to take or if this boil u go sue me to Samsung and. Know im so cold ads who never gave a fuck

  • lemao

    Obviously not HIS list you dumb shit!! It’s from some piece of scrap note that was stuck to his shoe!

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    I have held the Z Ultra in real life and the screen i absolutely incredible and no issues with viewing angles. Please refrain from judging a device just by looking at some video.

  • evolutionx1

    Seriously, man. But not his fault, though. We’re in “XPERIA BLOG”, so yeah, there’ll be no one but Sony fanboys all over here. Nexus 4 is one of the nicest looking and feeling phone that I have ever held.

  • evolutionx1


  • InspectorGadget80

    Of course SONY can out shine LG G2. why cause one it’s waterproof/dust resistance. and 2nd beautiful sexy designs and make a great camera. and when the hell is the HONAMI PRESS CONFERENCE DAMN IT. if they don’t release it I might as well buy the XPERIA z

  • InspectorGadget80

    Is that when SONY Honami press conference going too start?

  • [A]dri[A]n

    Kinda puts the “big battery, big bezel” argument to rest. LG has designed a wonderful phone. Not a huge fan of the back panel buttons, but we’ll see how that works out. As nice as Sony’s designs are, the Honami just looks far too similar to it’s predecessor’s to be impressive. And that bezel is just unacceptable. Not to mention that the G2 sports a larger screen on a smaller body. Don’t get me wrong, I love Sony, I own a ZL, but that G2 has BEAST written all over it.

  • Knight

    hahaha!Awesome answer!

  • Knight

    The thing is that I’ve owned an LG phone and it broke within days.Also the LG brand is second grade compared to Sony which is a premium brand.

  • Knight

    Are you crazy?LG makes one of the most stupidest,ugliest and the most unreliable phones!Sony Xperias have a history and at the number three in the world’s list

  • azzido

    It will be hard to outshine it to be honest… It can be similar, with similar specs, but there is nothing except design that Honami could outshine it. Maybe amplituner? But for sure no camera as we already saw this small lens and still led flash…

  • cp2020

    Taste is a subjective matter, that is why I stated clearly that LG design isn’t nice for ME. I don’t speak on this blog for anyone else…just myself. Anyone can agree or disagree it’s our right to share private opinions. That’s what Xperia Blog asks for. Opinions. There’s no bad tastes. It’s called personal preference.

  • bigshynepo

    Not a fan of that LG design…

  • cp2020

    It’s not as simple as u make it out to be so it’s a very silly thing to say.

  • for real

    Apple have already done.

  • Cristi13

    Wow genius, because this guy says so, lg is a “second grade” brand. Fucking genius.

  • Cristi13

    It’s interesting that these so called Sony “fans” can’t accept anything but Sony.

  • ayush

    Sony Xperia i1 honami it’s the beast. Lg cant beat him

  • faggot

    Oh, and a rectangle with curved corners is hard to drawer? stupid idiot

  • Ashad Mamood

    Deluded springs to mind? G2 is about to release where is Honami?

  • Ashad Mamood

    You must be in alternative universe?

  • Roy

    I love this new device by LG, and I sincerely hope LG gets a bigger chunk in the smartphone sales for this. It’s a job well done and the UI inovations are nice as well. I would consider an LG if not for the unsatisfactory design, the very same reason I pondered buying an S4 instead of my Z. Bottom line is, looks come first to me. Sony goes yet undefeated when it comes to sharp looks and premium looking devices.
    If specs were what drove me though, LG has definetely a shot in this race. Let’s see what Honami final build will be like.

  • Ashad Mamood

    G2 is 5.2″ and has 3000mAh battery yet Sony can’t put a bigger battery in a 6.4″ brick called the Z ultra? Sony are still a year behind everyone else!

  • Ashad Mamood

    Sony will release about 3-4 months behind LG

  • EliasAlucard

    I’m most likely getting the Honami. Not really interested in LG smartphones.

  • cleverthansony

    lg has 5.2 inc screen with 138.5 mm tall,
    sony has 5.0inc screen with 144 mm tall.
    wtf are u doing sony?

  • Drizzle

    My two favorite OEMs…
    I think my mind is already made up.
    BUT… My heart is still open to you SONY!

  • Drizzle

    Yeah, I’m an LG FAN, NOT a fanboi though lol. Good point.

  • aligamz

    While LG G2’s design and specs are quite noteworthy, several sites are labeling its software as a “nightmare”.
    Sony devs still have a long way to go. I hope they do better.

  • TechGuyChris

    That Lg 2 is a beautiful beast. The no bezel Is amazing.almost looks like a phone from total recall lol

  • Raymond

    its their trademark! its showing color and luminosity ….do you see apple having these distinctive wallpaper?how about Samsung ?yes they do, but some kind of grass flower…and now LG a picture of a kid pointing finger to a flower! you can change your wallpaper anyway if you want to…

  • Mohammed Khired


    Who said any thing about Samsung?

  • nidou bossy

    and i still love the way it is whatever you say or think!

  • Umar Khan

    Can i just ask how much did LG paid you for this publicity …. wonder why some people sell themselves for few $$

  • Umar Khan

    XZ cam aint good, you know i have heard this from so many people over the internet, I have XZ and one thing YOU NEED TO KNOW that sony cams are not for babies who use iphones or Samsung, you need to understand the background, surroundings, lighting, type of picture you need to take and then adjust the settings accordingly; not just take a shot in an Auto mode.

  • Umar Khan

    Honami is sitting back, watching movies and trying very hard not to appear and ruin LG’s already very short fame life span.

  • David M

    Glad to see competency devices treated at that sane manner

  • Netto Dashius Hexareus

    I owns Xperia Z Ultra and know what, all you said about XZU are WRONG! Firstly, I had a bad perception on the XZU camera but after having it for 8 hours, fuck yeah! It’s better than my LWW. The camera perform best at normal light, but cant handle only when the room is very dark. And I mean dark until you cant see your black cat. And please, don’t compare XZU Triluminos display with IPS LCD. Both of them have near 178 degree of viewing angle. None of my friends and family looks from 170 degree on my phone. And one thing for you, compared with my bro’s LG Optimus G Pro, my XZU display is better.
    And I tell you, for 8 hours, NOT A SINGLE LAG was found in my new smartphone or phablet or whatever. Seriously, don’t talk about performance in XZU coz it’s blazing fast. And 6.44 inch? No sweat! One hand operation, check!
    Another thing. Stamina mode is not like ordinary power saver apps. Ordinary power saver apps works by closing your WIFI, 3G/4G, Mobile data, Bluetooth, NFC, and so on, leaving your connected only via GSM. Stamina mode works by ONLY ALLOWING CERTAIN APPS TO ACCESS INTERNET AND OTHER POWER DRAINER RADIO. GET THAT!

    I’m not writing this because I was being paid, it’s because I own that stuff, by my money. Not by anyone. All those bad comments about XZU are stupid. Please, get that device first then bash out till your mouth rip off.
