    Some pics of my day out today. I gave the camera a bit of a workout to see how it handled things. There's no adjustments to these pics.

    Nice shots. How did the battery hold up?

    I think it's at 78% or something like that. We ended up using it for directions to the place we went but I had it plugged in. So I had it 100% when I started. I took a few pics and played around with editing, Instagram and the maps. So it's quite phenomenal. :)

    The camera performs well, even though Sahib seems sceptical :P I took some really difficult shots with it and the pictures turned out well. I couldn't seem to sort out the panorama function.

    Also I had to reduce these pictures to upload them so I'm not sure if they're unchanged.

    Good camera. Sahib is a bit pureview biased so I'm not surprised there...

    Sony is number 3 or 4 in camera technology so you're not going to get bad pictures from them. I think they're just sorting out how to fit what they want in the phone. I'm guessing their next sensor will blow away the competition while keeping it in a small package. Still I'm not complaining. I'm still learning what the camera can do. So I'll hopefully get better. :)

    I have to say the audio on the Sony blows the Nokia out of the water. Including the headphones that came with the phone.

    So here's the place we visited today. Polesden Lacey. It was open for an Edwardian Christmas. I've also added another picture of the countryside because it's really nice. This is a fairly difficult shot to do so I was quite pleased it turn out as well as it did. Also some funky stairs.

    Lol. You plug in headphones, especially good ones into a Sony Z series or even my OPO with Audio FX running and it is no contest. Nokia hasn't made good audio since the N91, with their last decent efforts being with some of the XpressMusic phones.

    As far as the camera goes, Sony also needs to tweak their software too. They've been excellent in the camera business for years so even with middling software their cameras are still nice.

    There are a few spots like that if you look closely, but that's in line with Sony's current software. Hence why I said they needed to tweak their algorithms. Otherwise, pictures overall are top notch and serviceable in low light too. I think since the Z1, their high end Z models have OIS.

    Since you're going on a budget, here you go:

    Ilumishield, fosmon or supershieldz are brands I have used previouslg with good results for those balling on a budget.

    Guys I got weird story.
    The new Ms Lumia 535 is going to launch in Indonesia. I was told they gonna have dual sim model.
    The price is about 1.699.000 IDR while Nokia 630 at 1.999.000 IDR.

    Ridiculously they going to cut the price for pre ordered one so from 1.699.000 IDR to 1.199.000 (bundled with sim without contract with 2GB data 100 min talk and 200 SMS)

    And so my dad who brought 630 a month ago said I felt cheated ._.

    Hmmm, its good, but for some people it might be too big. Also these rumoured specs are more than enough(atleast for me). I won't be buying a new phone soon but surely I'm happy that MS is coming up with new devices

    I'm not using a launcher, just the stock Sony and the stock Android. I think MIA uses the Nokia one but I could be wrong.

    I think that's a touch too big but if that's what the market wants I guess it will sell well. As long as it's quicker than than the 1020 and has SD storage it will sell well. 8.7 is a bit big for a FFC.

    LOL, ffc is the rear one from L920 :D
    Anyway, nice to hear something positive but those are still only rumors. I don't believe it until I see it.
