I think you are used to the Bright Colours from your Samsung so find Sony colours too dull but you will get used to it after a while as it is more natural and not over saturated.
that's not true - Sony Xperia phone screens are renowned since the Z3 days to have terrible color reproduction, in comparison to the standard sRGB gamut. the screens themselves look good of course, because they are calibrated to be punchy, saturated and vivid (and terrible white balance).

but compare an Xperia screen to, iPhone, Samsung (basic mode), sRGB mode screens from Nexus 6p, HTC 10.. and yeah the colors are off.

Nevermind the color reproduction, games still looks pretty nice on Z3 than other lcd screens i saw.

On the other hand, oled only started to improve their color reproduction these few years and Sammy is still selling well.

Anyone could help comment on how is the GPS accuracy for XZ with Pokemon Go? Especially indoors.

Got see "Unable to get get GPS signal" message for long time/frequently or not?

Where did you bought your XZ from and what colour did you chose? My XZ display was too warm for my liking that I had to add blue...
Looks like we got different batch of XZ then...
I had seen my fair share of warm and cold display, so mine is definitely warm this time...
Got mine from Sony Store, Forest Blue.

Left: XZ, Right: Z3+
Here's mine. Top XZ. Bottom Note 7. (My camera is on auto white balance so the note 7 looks less warm after tweaking the XZ)

Before tweaking the white balance


After tweaking

Hi, anyone using Xperia Transfer Mobile to copy data from old phone to XZ via wifi direct? I am using it to transfer Z5's data over but seems like it is taking forever. Anyone experienced this too?

Initially I had difficulties too, uncheck the apps box and it will be fine. I re-download my apps after that.

What if all the displays are set to default WB?

Mine finally done after more than 12 hours. Luckily I was on leave and I just let it run. Btw, we can no longer toggle LTE on and off in the quick settings? Another thing I noticed is that the screen brightness bar sometimes will revert to the lowest setting by itself.

Yup, adaptive brightness is turned on. Did not encounter this when I was using Z2 and Z5.
