Display calibration and more for the Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia ZL?

0. phoneArena 18 Jan 2013, 21:46 posted on

The handsets that captured the largest buzz at CES 2013 were the Sony Xperia Z and the Sony Xperia ZL and while that doesn't guarantee success in the marketplace (right Palm Pre, right Motorola DROID BIONIC?), screenshots of the Sony Xperia ZL displayed what appeared top be display calibration software which would allow the user to customize the screen to his own liking...

You're right.

I'm considering buying one of these, but i gotta say some of these folks are seriously misinformed and/or just purely blinded.

It's a 2-year commitment, so I'm gonna decide after trying it out first.

actually, no matter how pure black does the AMOLED out, once the Bravia Engine apply, they are both equal, but Bravia Engine meets the actually color with vibrancy while AMOLED leaved greenish tint.

I compare a Silent Hill Trailer on both Galaxy Note 2 & Xperia P.
the black bars on note 2 is super deep while on P is greyish, BUT on the actual video, theyre eaqually vibrant BUT i prefer the Xperia P bcoz the Foggy Part is truly Grey not greenish on AMOLED....

Try it and youll know what I mean :))

I gotta disagree on the black argument there. There's nothing that matches OLED screens when it comes to producing black. Because in OLEDs, blacks are produced by turning off the pixels. So when it's black, it literally is black (i.e. absolute zero light emission).

However, on the other hand, LCD screens produce black by blocking pixels and prevent backlight from escaping. How well this is executed, there's always gonna be light "leaking" and will never reach absolute zero (well, at least with current technology).

Mobile BRAVIA Engine is software not hardware, so how it can affect viewing angles? Go get some knowledge before talking.

What's the difference, kiddo? I just said that it has poor viewing angles and oversaturated colors, which are actually facts. i didin't mention nothing about SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE side, you troll. You just keep talking unless you piss somebody off.

You have said that:

"...the bravia technology showed nothing spectacular...expect poor viewing angles..."

That's why I have said that Mobile BRAVIA Engine is software not hardware and that it can't change viewing angles. Go get some knowledge before trolling - loser.

You have said that:

"...the bravia technology showed nothing spectacular...expect poor viewing angles..."

But the fact is that Mobile BRAVIA Engine has nothing to do with poor viewing angles.

"...where did I put any emphasis on whether it is a tech or software????"

You have not said that it is hardware or software, but I say that it is software. So where is your problem?

Anyway, you have said that:

"...the bravia technology showed nothing spectacular...expect poor viewing angles..."

But Mobile BRAVIA Engine doesn't have anything to do with viewing angles!!! So get some knowledge before making stupid statements.

"you're pathetic..."

You are making stupid, false statements without knowledge not I, so think twice which one of us is pathetic troll.

Actually AMOLED will benefit a LOT with these kind of options because you will be able to adjust the color temperature of the screen. I have yet to see an AMOLED screen which can display pure whites. The are either bluish white or yellowish white.

It should get 4.2 right after it launches, lets see if Sony stays true to their words. This looks like a premium nexus 4 IMO and I want it now.

I have an s3 and I think the Zed beats my phone easily.
As for this, it's not something I would miss on my s3.
There are free apps you can download you know.
I have "Filter your screen" and it does all the calibration you want.

It even resolves the black clipping issue the s3 has

If only this phone came with Android 4.2, 2500+ mAh battery and an HD SLCD2/ HD IPS screen it would have been perfect. . .

Its thin enough that putting a battery case on it wouldn't hurt anything, as long as its popular enough we will probably see some 2500+ mah extended battery cases, if that happens 4500 mah+ is more than enough. The screen is a 1080p Neo-IPS, no worries about it looking nice, colorful and sharp.

Umm. just to make it clear, I'm pretty sure that "racing game" is just a video of GT5 being played on the phone. those are nascars at the daytona track.
