Xperia Z4 hands-on pics leak showing all angles

by XB on 6th April 2015

in Rumours, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

wpid-wp-1428317859047.jpegThe clearest live pictures of the Sony Xperia Z4 have leaked. The six pictures show the handset across all angles and confirm what we have seen so far. This includes exposed micro USB charging port on the bottom and just one port flap on the left side (most likely for nano SIM and memory card). The notification light is also similar to that of the Xperia Z3. As the leaks start to accelerate,  hopefully it means an official launch is nearing.








Thanks Kurtdean,  Raj,  Saleem and Zymo!

  • USB Type C ? :)

  • Nino


  • Kiwison

    Looks thicker than Z3 to me..

  • Levered

    Good luck for 2 guys take this leaked picture of z4.

  • Ritwij

    USB port without flap, as expected. Nice!

  • LancerEX

    Glossy frame… :(

  • BarKohba

    Wish there was a fingerprint scanner

  • skyxz

    Damn! I don’t think they’re employing imx230 sensor in Z4.

  • And a Superior Auto comparison

  • AnP

    With 5.0 Sony changed it’s Media Applications, renamed them too, then why does it show “Walkman” here if it’s Lollipop. I really product looks better than in these images, build quality wise.

  • test version i assume and i have lollipop and i don´t have “Music” yet
    And you can see a new logo for PlayStation who is renamed to PSN

  • Sweggity

    For those using Xperia Z2/Z3 this isn’t worth the upgrade rather wait for Z5.

  • Sweggity

    Yes the finger print scanner should have been there.

  • shhh
  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Look like I’m the only one who love this.

    I will use alumania/deff bumper so I don’t care about design so much. :P

  • Camilo

    I think I’ll miss the magnetic port for charging, since there’s no need because the USB port doesn’t need any flap that will wear off over time. Still i’m a little concerned that with friction, the nanocoating or whatever they do to make the USB port waterproof will wear off fast. The three things that nade me buyba Z3 was it’s camera, waterproofing and stereo speakers.

  • Kiwison

    Off topic: Z3 lollipop UK anyone?

  • mawhob2222

    Xperia z4 is coming with Exmor RS 230 192 auto focus????

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Where did you find that? Z4’s image is way better!

  • If no Z4 Compact is expected I’m skipping on this and getting a Z3 Compact from Clove instead. I already have a snow shovel.

  • kido

    Why dont they put xenon flash in there for superior low light performance??

  • bzhzhJjsbzbz

    better use this link because disqus fucks with the quality.

  • kido

    Yeah the snapdragon sense ID fingerprint scanner would have been nice…

  • jakobd.

    goodnight Sony, the latest smartphone of them will probably be quite honest what an idiot sitting over there, 4 identical models one after the other and wonder why it is always sold worse.Still scratch-prone, slippery, no flatterer, split 1-2mm, frame corners are not flush, no aluminum back, no dual led flash, no ledg alerts in speakers, no usb type c,no 2k display, old bad camera, SD 810 with overheating problem.

  • jakobd.

    It makes me sad that Sony has an idiot who is responsible for these things and nothing changes, where is this Sony Wow what we’re waiting for years?

  • Szabolcs Orbán

    leak the lollipop for z1!

  • Chocolatneko?????

    Like that there wont be any flashlight available

  • Chocolatneko?????

    Wireless incoming bro

  • Chocolatneko?????

    I love it, in fact imma get it when its out

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Me too !!

  • kido

    Lol well said

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Do you know aluminum back make the phone hot. I have xperia ion I notice this issues. 2k display is unnecessary for 5.2″ screen size, Camera is not bad anymore, They are underclock the CPU so no heating problem.

  • kido

    Did anyone notice the iphone used to take these photos reflected by the back glass panel?? Lol

  • SopNaw

    And some faces..

  • Thariq Mohammed

    +1, you over take me by few seconds to comment this

  • GigaSPX

    You should say the same for Samsung and LG. They’ve had their fair share of leaks and still have sales regardless. Sony is the same.

  • techielover

    same old same old cmon sony be bold be bold!!

  • aziz al-ali

    Good they removed the cover for usb charging and also magnetic charger hope for wireless charge

  • jokensy

    So,to remove the nano sim card, you’ll have to remove the sd card too!?

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    No new camera sensor ? Wtf

  • xperiax10.awesome

    Thank God, I moved to Nexus 6. Xperia Z2 was my last Sony mobile and I was Sony user since walkman series !!
    Sony lacks innovation now..soon it will be dead, I know I am going to get lots of thumbs down but truth is Sony is going nowhere !!

  • jokensy

    It still looks better than the Galaxy S6 ;-)

  • jokensy

    I’m definitely upgrading from my Z2.

  • roeshak

    Same cold pale bluish panel of the z3. Thanks but no thanks. I think I’ll pass.

  • ahomad hosin

    yeah F*** sony, I wish they go bankrupt, I was die hard sony fan, but they are getting lazy. 5th phone with the same design and 4th with the same camera (according to rumors) when the Z1 was released (my current phone) it didn’t had the best camera, 4 generation later and no much improvement to the camera, WTH.

    I used to hate apple because they stick to the same design for few years, but sony now is even worse, at least apple had 4, 4s, 5 and 5s (4 phones) with similar design then changed it with the 6. But sony is using the same design for z, z1, z2, z3 and z4 (5 phones so far).

    For me the main things I was looking for to upgrade from my current Z1 are new design, camera and processor. but now Z4 has the same design and camera, so this basically the same phone with new processor.

    They just released statement not so long ago saying that they won’t release new phone for the sake of having new phone, but this is what it actually look like. If what we know is true and the Z4 have the same design and camera, I will get the note 5 or new nexus which will be my first non-sony phone in my whole life (been using sony phones for >10 years) but they just either don’t learn or don’t care.

  • privilege

    We will see this phone in may/june?

  • Kal

    Sick of tire of that bezels sony please

  • Clarence Alvarado

    I see new Xperia Camera apps! XD

  • kido

    Yeah u probably right…

  • Vrr

    Dude are you Timel’s Nigga

  • (C):stem

    Just the Z3 with steroids… Love the design tho (who doesn’t?)

  • jag

    Yehey! Lanyard is at the right side!! (the pains of a left lol)

  • Phil Edwards

    hello guys. Am on the original Z. i havent upgraded because i havent seen the point at the moment and to be honest am struggling to see why i would upgrade to the Z4. if anyone could tell me why i would love to hear it?

  • ash

    why fix or change somethng which aint broken

  • Kamil1308

    It hurts my heart to say it but its pretty ugly. I personally have Z1 and was thinking about upgrading but it might look I will have to choose another company.

  • jag

    Never ever compare prototypes to final product.

  • Kamil1308

    I hope you are right. Was with Sony since my first phone it be a shame to finnaly change it.

  • ash

    nobody said there wont be Z4 compact. I dont how you conclude that

  • Nobody said there will be.

    Was there Z2 Compact?

  • kido

    I had the xperia zr which had almost identical specs with the original xperia z..I then upgraded to the z3 compact and i can tell you that the upgrade was worth it, from better camera performance to improved battery life etc. So upgrading from the original xperia z to the z4 should be worth it, but from the z3 i dont really see an immediate need…

  • ash

    but z4 not even released , so whom you want to say that z4 will be available?

  • Moe Sat

    I am sony fan. But Sony make us so boring bcoz Z1 Z2 Z3 Z4 have nearly the same design. I can’t believe it.Sony should know that user’s impression is very important.

  • USB type c, where are you?

  • jag

    Yup.. For sure! I am also waiting for this z4 but have been looking for other phones too due to oh-so-long launch of z4. Saw the s6 edge last sat. It looks better than the previous iterations but still looks like a toy. And i really dislike the icon packs of samsung though they now managed to replace the default fonts?? (not sure)
    I asked my Fiancée if it’s a worthy upgrade but she doesn’t like it toO haha!

  • bzhzhJjsbzbz


  • Smellslikenirvana

    i only want the camera to be better…

  • Kabuto Kouji

    Ugly notification dot!!! (´o´) cmon sony.. u can do better than that!!

  • Artur Villain

    What about a scanner for fingerprint? I want to protect my smartphone in this way. I love SONYs smartphones but when i see other flagship smartphones. Sony seems to be the worst. And i feel bad becouse sony glass designe is the best ,proffesional and looks expensive :P There is a lot free black space around the display it looks bad. I have seen a great thing with metal frames. It looks better than at this photos. (it was XPERIA Z4 ELEMENTAL). I wish that Sony Z4 will have less free space around the display. New camera as good as they can. (It is the most important thing. In my opinion SONY should beat a samsung s6 camera). And of course better selfie camera.
    Second thing: Display should be little bit biger (i do not want a free black space at the left and right side) i believe that sony display could be better than current display in Z3. And the last thing use a new tehnology. I mean fingerprint scanner. It is all. Usb port without flap its usefull. But who want to buy a xperia z4 only for better usb port? So SONY Make me proud :P

  • DonRox

    Either the guy’s hand is so small or the phone is too big. looks like a 5.5″ screen at least.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    I think front camera is better than before but not so sure if it can beat the another brand.

  • Kravtiger

    Hahaha you crack me up!! I thought I was impatient!

  • rus_media

    Z3 version 2?

  • ryq24

    “Apple had 4, 4s, 5 and 5s (4 phones) with similar design then changed it with the 6” maybe Sony will also change their design when Z6 came out.

  • Kamil1308

    I haven`t yet seen it myself. Ya you just got to love Sony they make beautiful phones that’s for sure. I guess I will wait until i be able to see it for myself in a store. If it will be the same as it looks on the pictures I might just wait for S6.

  • Kurt Kobaine

  • Niels d. G.

    Is that Kim Jong-un?!

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    Your right I love my z2 and this looks exactly like it my only fault with the z4 is why didn’t they make the notification led like the z2? It looks way better this is basically a 64-bit z2 with better camera tweaks, CPU and graphics not worth the upgrade

  • Steve12321

    People saying “I have a Z3 and I won’t upgrade”… This is not for you. Nobody buys a new phone every six months. Z2 owners should start to think about upgrading now. Z1 owners should see it as a reasonable upgrade, and Z owners should be strongly compelled to upgrade. As a Z1 owner, I barely saw anything about the Z2 (was still on my honeymoon with the phone), felt jealous about the battery of the Z3/Z3c, and I’m seriously considering upgrading to this.

    If you always want to have the very best phone from a manufacturer, you will be in trouble. HTC is dead, Samsung releases flagships twice a year (S and Note series), LG is doing the same (with the G4 and Flex 2), Sony does it as well. Qualcomm’s cycle, with two flagship processors a year, helps this. You either spend a lot of money on phones or you aren’t always with the #1 flagship. Get used to it.

  • Kiwison

    That’s beyond patience.. Whole Europe got the update and we’re still waiting.. That’s ridiculous

  • Steve12321

    Xenon for pictures + LED for videos.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    as the Z1 is owner. I will buy this new flagship anyway.

  • May Czos

    Not anytime soon, suppliers can’t keep up with orders right now plus they’d have to make new model for Sony (waterproof).

  • Kravtiger

    Tell me about it. Fed up with manually checking now. Oh well, on holiday in 2 days and not back until the end of the month so maybe it’ll be waiting for me.

  • May Czos

    Do you know that aluminium back scratches like crazy? Metal is even softer than glass. Notifications LED in speakers? What difference does it make? USB Type-C is still quite rare, suppliers can’t keep up with the production and Sony needs the one that’s specifically designed for them (waterproof).

  • May Czos


  • May Czos

    I heard they’re planning to release 3 size variants at the same time. So Compact and Ultra/Phablet variants are quite likely. Still waiting for Z5 Compact though.

  • May Czos

    Nope, IMX220.

  • May Czos

    Sony needs their own model to keep their phones waterproof while currently suppliers can’t keep up with regular Type C.

  • May Czos

    Not likely.

  • May Czos

    It’s not ready yet, Qualcomm may release it near the end of this year.

  • kido

    Which no one will probably use… Lol…i just hope that they add shooting @240fps an improvement over the current 120fps slow motion In the z3

  • Timel

    But Sony isn’t Apple

  • Geese Howard

    The Z4 is looking good, a good upgrade from the Z… looks like time for my Z to retire.

    But you know guys, sometimes seeing all these new generation phones, you sometimes think about the good old days mobile scene like the StarTac and Walkman series… Phones we’re a lot more like phones and the battery life for them were fantastic… Ah, sorry for the nostalgia, the Z4 gives me that nostalgic feel. Perhaps the Z4 will bring that glory once more to the scene? :)

  • GGrinder Carcass

    Fucking bezels!!! Wtf sony!!!!!!

  • Timel

    He has a brain
    No one can control him

  • Linus Klang

    missing the magnetic connector, has it been replaced with superslow QI charging?

  • Rafay

    No ois?
    its a big dissapointment

  • Ali

    We need a better front facing camera. Dual-tone flash!
    And a better camera software!!!!!!!

  • Billy de Fretes

    either you just being stu**d or not, comparing to iphone 4,4s,5,5s and 6… it took 4 years for apple to change their design… how old xperia z series comparing to all iphone??

  • Nuno

    I have all past flagship phones from Sony, from the original Z to the Z3 not forgetting the Z Ultra one of my favorite phones. And i can say that every upgrade was worth it, going from the Z2 to the Z3 i thought that i wouldn’t notice a difference but i did, the design is much more comfortable and sleek. The display is much brighter and the phone does seem faster. Now definitely awaiting the Z4 and Z4 Ultra, its definitely going to be a big deal as they are going to be 8 core 64 bit phones. Not to mention that they will go from the 801 to the 810 chip set that will be a lot more powerful, also QHD display will definitely be a plus. I believe that the Z4 will go toe to toe with any flagship in 2015.

  • kido

    Software stabilisation is already pretty good.. Better spend money on other improvements. Plus no one wants the camera module on the back to stick out like in the s6

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    i think i know what slogan that sony will use for z4, same as z2 : ” details make the difference, although you can’t see them “

  • Arda Akca

    I hope Sony is preparing a Z4 Ultra not later than IFA. Please make a gunmetal color choice. It would look really mean with omnibalance design.

  • Ney

    Every next Xperia flagship looks worse and worse. They should make that sides look better and make the back panel matte. That would be improvement.

  • RbbrDcky

    I think it’s a sad (and superficial) world that we live in where aesthetics can completely overshadow capabilities, performance, and features. If you truly think of everything that you get on an Xperia, there’s no other phone that can match it! For example, I think if everyone truly understood just what it takes to make a computer completely waterproof without some external case or shielding or specially-ruggedized body, more people would be in awe of what Sony has truly accomplished here! I’ve freaking taken pictures underwater! What other flagship phone can do that? Samsung attempted to imitate it on the S5 but then completely abandoned it even though they have one of the largest research divisions in technology! That says something. And instead, we have consumers doing backflips because their screen is now curved, which in no way (I repeat: IN NO WAY) enhances the user’s experience. In fact, all it does is create distorted images and extra glare from the reflected light off of curve (look at any photo taken of the phone). It frustrates me to no end that a phone like the S6 can outshine a phone like the Z3. Where consumers place more value in a curved 2K screen, fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor than they do in practical features like waterproofing, 2 days of battery life, stereo speakers, PS4 remote play, hi-res audio support, built-in digital noise cancellation, and up to DSLR-levels 12800 ISO camera sensitivity! And who knows how much more they will achieve with the Z4 (although we already know that the uncovered charging port is also waterproof!). As someone in technology, it is nothing short of awe-inspiring to me the amount of tech that Sony was able to pack into this device! And what truly saddens me is that there are so many people who will completely disregard it because they think the bezels are too big. What’s wrong with this picture?

  • Amimanot

    Its not needed really since the USB port is now not covered

  • Akand

    It’s time to buy Z2/Z3. Just sacrificing 64 bit processor, you can save a lot, maybe more than 300€. I am going to buy Z2 maybe.

  • jack

    show me the usb port, please looks as nice as apple’s lightening. otherwise, pls cover it with flap. ugly port will destroy the nice looking phones.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    Oh boy!! Now i see why SONY´s “SOON” means = maybe end of the year and

    “INNOVATION” means = Z4 :S

  • jakobd.

    Sony needs to stand out from the competition to sell and to remain on the market, so all of my arguments. Since when is anodized aluminum softer than the glass which used sony?

  • jakobd.

    In terms of hardware more or less all smartphones are equal, Sony should just use to be, Just abolish glass and finally something against the huge column which do have some models,Hardware default, all smartphones are more or less the same

  • Steve12321

    The S6 is objectively better than the Note 4, which is objectively better than the S5, and so on. If you want to have the absolute best Samsung phone all the time, you must buy them as they come. But nobody does that, because it’s insane. But still, some people want to buy a Sony phone every six months… Which is ridiculous.

  • Halil ?brahim Gülmez

    ?Phone 5s!!

  • Battal Aljadei

    Reduced the display size but kept the same bezels size ?

  • May Czos

    Metal on the back wouldn’t be anything new either.

  • VictorMartino

    If it means better pictures then I want it. And considering the Z3’s camera suck’s, the Z4 definitely needs it.

  • Rafay

    Ois is really useful in low light photography
    So its important n don’t forget many people bash Sony for poor image quality

    I have a Z as well. And Im definetly not upgrading to this one on the picture as well.

I hope they put High Resulation audio playback to their phones.

  • Tashiro Yu

    Ok….. :(

  • Keion London

    Why am I still seeing rumors of a QHD variant of the z4?

  • Ritwij

    I’m sad and furious about that too

  • gamer324

    Most people quite frankly just want what the tech sites tell them is hip and big, it’s a vicious cycle where websites put the popular brands on a pedastal to appease the masses and gain click throughs, and in turn those masses seemingly reaffirm their beliefs that change equals progress. All the while true innovation is shunned as irrelevant, minor or simply mundane.

    Everything from UX utilities to the physical button placement on Xperias feel thought out, as opposed to just being there to fill a feature checklist.

    Honestly I love the Omnibalance Design, and I’d rather Sony use this for even the z6 than change it for no other reason than change itself. What I’m more interested is the what’s under the hood, whether Sony has opted for Qualcomm’s wireless charging solution, whether Sony has put in a Sense ID system within the z4, or have they amped up the audio output,what display tech Sony’s using (OLED or IPS, the brightness and efficiency of the panel) or how many changes Sony made to its 1/2.3″ sensor…for all we know Sony could’ve incorporated PCM autofocus into a new custom sensor, just like the z3’s was a custom variant. And on that front sadly the leaks give little to no info.

  • Giannikosmo

    Happy to see the Walkman application back! :)

    Xperia’s camera sucks especially its auto mode and that’s a big mistake


    95% of smartphone can survive from the water accident without water resistant feature because in reality users are always keep their phones away from water, so for some users water resistant feature isn’t important enough to make them buy the phone even you’re mermaid LoL

    2 days battery life,
    Stop this bullshit, 2 days battery life means if you didn’t play anything much but in reality, on one day users spend the times on the smartphone with many activities like listen the music, play games, surfing the Internet, selfie, facebook, twitter, instagram

    stereo speakers,
    It’s not a good stereo speaker anyway

    PS4 remote play,
    I actually love this feature but it’s easily useless when you don’t have PS4 and the truth is… not everyone have PS4

    hi-res audio support, built-in digital noise cancellation,
    It is just software, isn’t it?

    and up to DSLR-levels 12800 ISO camera

  • ?? ???

  • Blacksparrow15

    Really funny how you keep on saying bad comments to almost every article here in XperiaBlog. Yet you always visit this site and waste your time here. But anyway,

    Waterproofing is no gimmick. It’s added resistance to your “PREMIUM” phone.

    2 Days battery life is true. I have z3c and i charge my phone every other day even the wifi and NFC is always on.

    Stereo speakers, it makes sense dude. Volume level this high in an enclosed and waterproof body is very remarkable.

    HiRes Audio, DNC although it is pure software, why other manufacturers can’t even make the same in their phones?

    and lastly, ISO 12800. You don’t even know photography, do you? Expanded camera settings are way better than limited features. So you are like some point-and-shoot bandwagons out there. :D

    Peace out men :D

    Thank God, I moved to Nexus 6. Xperia Z2 was my last Sony mobile and I was Sony user since walkman series !!
    Sony lacks innovation now..soon it will be dead, I know I am going to get
    lots of thumbs down but truth is Sony is going nowhere !!

    Bad comments?

    Such a blind fanboy

  • tong_its

    sony mobile’s once-lustrous reputation (no small thanks to sony ericsson) is now pure history. i’m afraid z4 will be sony’s exit model if it doesn’t meet sales expectations. see how sony vaio exited with a bang. xperia made no bang and that’s not going to change any time soon. sony tends to give too little too late if any, and they will have another rude awakening—my gut says z4 will be do or die.

  • tong_its

    whether or not one is an xperia user, truth is ppl have to get over the impression that sony makes TRUE waterproof phones. i went through a confidence-shattering episode with my z3 tablet compact’s display blacking out after getting it wet. what did the authorized service center say? “You have to read the fine print in the user manual.” i downloaded the pdf and it heavily suggests limitations such as salt water, household detergents and corrosive chemicals such as chlorine. swimming pool, kitchen sink, bath and shower, anyone? NO WAY! it’s like saying we can use our z3’s in wet conditions UP TO A TIME, and 6 weeks is way too short, imo. i got my tablet wet only ONCE and for this singular event sony replaced my tablet with a new one, since it’s under warranty. i know mine isn’t an isolated case. sony’s water-proof technology is heavily hyped up.

  • I’m still on LT25i / Xperia V and I don’t think I’ll actually wait for Z5…

    Why doesn’t Sony, one of the best camera brands, make a phone with the best camera then? For most people, one device is a burden and people are not going to carry an extra camera around. Sony’s phones are failing because they want to protect their camera industry. Sony wants you to buy a phone AND a camera. This is the main frustration people have with Sony. They won’t put out a decent camera-phone. You would expect them to completely blow out competitors with their camera sensors and they don’t or can’t. So much for Sony research prowess!…

  • tkrEiDoloN

    I agree. Even though they say it’s waterproof, it never really is. I’ve gone through old products that make the same claim and it’s never completely true with metal casings.

    This gripe, coupled with the fact that they won’t make the best camera-phone when their camera division is so well known for quality, is frustrating.

  • Sweggity

    The innovation for smartphone is gone now… there is nothing that mesmerizes people like it used to back in the days, now smartphone vendors just add more speed, better camera and bettter display hence a new model. It’s same for all companies look at ur nexus 6 got a bigger display, better camera and faster processor than nexus 5 that’s all.

  • Sweggity

    z5 for next year. not this year.

  • Snorky112

    this is what xperia Z should have been

  • azzido

    oh no, why it comes with this horrible notification dot? :(((((((((((((((((
    was expecting the beautifull Z2 notification LED.

    Hope it will be back with Z5 as it is keeping me away from Z4, as well as rounded black corners (Z2 has better) and still the same design… Would prefer to combine it with Arc style on the back.
    Maybe some day (dreams).

  • Type C usb or regular micro usb >>>?????

  • WhyWai

    My gosh… 4th phone with similar design… I am a big fan of Sony but I’m gonna skip Sony’s phone until they updated their design…

  • 3_nity

    And Sony Mobile will no longer using metal frame for their phone.

  • Thiago Guerreiro Bastos

    Humm… thats true!

    Well as with most things, it’s not that simple. At the most basic level, there is hardware and software that work together to produce a photo. Sony is one of the best when it comes to hardware, which is why damn near every phone manufacturer (Samsung, Apple, HTC, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Huawei, etc) now uses Sony’s hardware sensor in their flagship devices. On the other side of that coin is the image processing; i.e., software. And since Sony is definitely not known for their programming prowess, it’s actually not surprising that their end photos aren’t the best.

  • tkrEiDoloN

    Everyone understands they have some of the best hardware.

    No one understands why they can’t find a partner with the best software.

    Sony’s premium camera-phone profit margins are easily the widest. Releasing the best camera-phone is simple.

  • RbbrDcky

    A Sony-Samsung mash-up would be amazing! And the only reason I hold Samsung to a higher standard is because they are several times larger than Sony and notoriously overspend on R&D (their words, not mine).

  • valentino

    And the qi charging is free. right in the box. really wish that.

  • Ryuga

    I wish
    I hope they give with all z4

  • I was hoping they would switch to the USB Type C connector… PC manufacturers have begun releasing products already and this is still half a year from launch…whyy?

  • Andy Roid

    The camera on the Z3 was a joke. Look at the phonearena comparisons.

  • Andy Roid

    Yeah, I think this is the new Z3 Ultra

  • RbbrDcky

    Admittedly, the auto mode does leave something to be desired but on manual mode, you can produce some spectacular shots! Using the manual mode has actually taught me a lot about photography that I never would’ve learned or cares about otherwise. Anyone that complains about the Z3 camera should play around with the manual mode. I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

  • Andy Roid

    But most people who take photos on their phone just want a point and shoot experience. By the time you have messed about adjusting white balance and ISO settings, the people you wanted to take a photo of will have got bored and moved on

  • RbbrDcky

    Hey, I’m not disagreeing with you. I only take issue with anyone that says that the Z3 has even an average or below average camera. Because it absolutely does not!

  • Andy Roid

    It does as far as most people are concerned. Hardware and software are supposed to work together. Sony can’t absolve themselves of blame by saying the camera sensor is excellent, when their default camera software ruins the image quality. So the bottom line is, Sony’s Z3 camera is atrocious

  • RbbrDcky

    That comment doesn’t make sense. Manual mode uses just as much software image processing as does auto mode.

  • chris kwak

    There hasn’t been a “real” replacement to the Z1 yet just incremental upgrades. In fact to me the design of the Z1 still feels more premium than the plastic rounded corners of newer Z’s. The dedicated camera button is something I can’t live without on a phone..that limits my options (no Samsung, LG, HTC etc) I really want an excuse to upgrade phones but Sony keeps giving me no real reason so I’ll cross my fingers the Z5 offers more. Apart from that my only gripe with the Z4 is the lack of charging port.. It works so well on the previous models (I hate plugging in a USB late at night.. Rather just slide it into the charging dock)
