DxOMark has recently reviewed the imaging qualities of the Sony Xperia Z1 and ranked it versus the latest smartphones. The Xperia Z1 achieved a DxOMark Mobile score of 76, tying it with the Apple iPhone 5S and putting it just behind the Nokia 808 Pureview which achieved a DxOMark Mobile score of 77. According to its website, DxOMark is the “trusted industry standard for camera and lens independent image quality measurements and ratings.”
The 1/2.3-inch 20.7MP CMOS sensor found in the Xperia Z1 is bigger than most other smartphone cameras which typically have 1/3-inch sensors. However, the overall score is a result of two halves when looking at the images versus video performance. On the stills side, the Xperia Z1 ranked fifth with the overall score boosted by the video performance which ranked number one against other camera phones.
