DxOMark rates Xperia Z3 Plus camera as best Xperia yet

by XB on 30th June 2015

in Imaging, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series


DxOMark Xperia Z3+_1Who says that the Sony Xperia Z3+/Z4 camera is no different to the Xperia Z2 or Z3? Camera specialists DxOMark have rated the Xperia Z3+ as having the best Sony Xperia camera yet with a score of 82 (both the Xperia Z2 and Z3 have a score of 79). This score puts the Xperia Z3+ into joint third position, along with the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The Samsung S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 4 take the number one and two positions respectively.

On the camera side, the Xperia Z3+ was found to have fast autofocus and good overall exposure, white balance and detail preservation. However, on the negative side, colour shading was visible outdoors along with slight colour fringing and ringing noticeable. On the video side, the Xperia Z3+ was praised for its stabilisation although autofocus was slow in testing. Check out the source for the full report.

    How about LG G4?

  • fluxx

    So at it is the same sensor for sure and most likely the same lens, perhaps the camera performance on the Z1, Z2 and Z3 will improve too with the next Lollipop 5.1 update?

    Just prayin’ :D

  • BarKohba

    nope. it has to do with the processor as well. the optimization coding goes hand in hand with processing power. so the z3 won’t ever be quite as good as the z3+ due to the difference in processing power…let alone the slower z1

  • These scores are all placebo…

  • Abdul Ghani

    dear xperia blog never trust dxomark and displaymate they all are lies. sonys camera software still produces less detailed and grainy pictures in low and decent light. it doesn’t have fast capture, auto mode sux and no manual controls just iso and exposure settings plus if anyone wants to use manual mode just use a real camera

  • Akand

    G Lens is a bit heavier for mobile processors to handle. Camera performance is improving rationally with processor improvement. I think next Xperia, combining improved sensor (most likely IMX230) with G Lens is going to surpass S6 Edge as it will equip beastly SD820.
    Improvements are on the way. Sony is the youngest in mobile division. So improvement speed isn’t that bad at all. That’s our hope. Still I am loyal to Sony.

  • Alvin

    Take that, timel!

    No just kidding hahaha

  • Makiz

    I has fast capture, since Xperia S

  • Shubham

    bro c’mon! Rejoice once atleast! I seriously wanna ask, have YOU tested z3+ personally? Please test it first and compare it to your z2 and then you can say all you want! Just a request!

  • Sweggity

    Where is timel when u need him…

  • Reza

    Dear Abdul Ghani, r u fckin serious…????

  • mountain

    Here are a few photos I took with my z3+.

    https://www.flickr.com/gp/25738231@N07/5dz91V

    As you can see, they are much better than any other Xperias up to date, with excellent colour. What I found strange though is the noise level is the same during day or night.

  • nfs2010

    Sony’s low-light performance is amazing. The large sensor along with the down-sampling works very well at night. Unfortunately, the DXO scores took a hit for daylight pictures as the rivals are shooting in higher resolution. Sony seriously needs to put in adaptive resolution. Just shoot 16mp/20mp in daylight and keep the 8mp auto mode untouched for low-light.

    Check out the low-light performance of Z3+,Z2, & S6

  • Akand

    Good enough for me to stick with Xperia.

  • Sadman Khan

    15.5 in Daylight and 8 in low light :D

  • Matt

    brace brace brace brace for impact

  • XperiaPolice

    Do I trust DXOMark, who apply scientific testing, or do I trust some person on the intewebz…

  • roeshak

    I wouldn’t take seriously any mobile photography chart that doesn’t have the lumia 1020 in clear first position. Don’t know what these guys are doing but it certainly isn’t camera testing if they seriously think the s6,note 4,iPhone 6,xperia z3+,z3,z2, iPhone 5,and galaxy s5 with its horrendous lowlight performance are all better than the 1020. Just laughable!

  • kaostheory

    Also why iPhone is faster. If you stuck a 21mp sensor in it, it would be leggy as hell.

  • Abdul Ghani

    yup i am fucking serious z1 z2 z3 z4/3+ SAME SENSOR SAME LENS software some tweaks but picture quality still shit in low light still painting effects still grain so whats new is the number provided by dxomak which is a looser website which is claiming nokia 1020 failed what a joke

  • Abdul Ghani

    i dont see low light performance is good little crop i see grain and roughness in picture not a single picture is clean

  • Abdul Ghani

    fast capture is when u press within milliseconds it should take pictures like iphone has done it with sonys camera in low light even daylight sonys phone take alot of seconds to take pictures that makes low light pictures blurry

  • Abdul Ghani

    i dont rejoice on fake results

  • nfs2010

    It is way better than S6. The post also has link to a photobucket album. Or you want it to beat – let’s say RX100?

  • Abdul Ghani

    nah i wont waste my time with u dont understand a clean pictures i guess i do have qx30 i know how a clean picture looks like

  • RbbrDcky

    These are awesome photos! Anyone that says that this camera isn’t perfectly acceptable for capturing and preserving their vacation photos is someone that is clearly insatiable.

  • nfs2010

    You’re kidding. How the hell the puny lens on a phone can beat the big, fat QX30? Yep, let’s not waste our time.

  • Abdul Ghani

    these pics are just fine clearly it has taken in well lit areas i would like to see indoor and and not well lit areas

  • Abdul Ghani

    i didint compare qx 30 with xperia i said i know how a clean picture looks like and xperia dont have clean pictures in low light specially in auto mode god stop praising sony for their awful software

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    The point if based on the camera n video performence. Lumia 1020 archieve a good point in taking photos but less point in the video.

  • jakobd.

    Not true ! not good Camera for the year 2015 ! look too G4 or s6 this are Next Flagship Smartphones not th3 Z3+ ! Sony make it better ,please !!!

  • nfs2010

    And others have worse pictures in low-light. S6 is placed at the top by DXO & Z3+ does best S6 at night by a big margin. You can ask for more, but it has to be realistic. I did say that they need to improve their daylight mode.

  • Abdul Ghani

    xperia z3+ 84 in photo mode lumia 1020 79 score in photo mode well dxomark are just utter shit i guess

  • Abdul Ghani

    what if the results have been fake and that xda guy is a xperia fan like u ?

  • Abdul Ghani

    i hate the s6 camera but it does not take that type of pictures at all

  • nfs2010

    You should buy an S6 and let us know how it goes. We’re counting on your honesty – big time.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlnlW6sOP7w

  • Abdul Ghani

    hahahah he didnt even focus the s6 it properly he is a sony fan clearly u can see right ?

  • nfs2010

    Except for the fact that he kept trying like what six times? How about the area out of the focus?

  • Abdul Ghani

    i am laughing at these fake exerts now

  • Abdul Ghani

    relying on a fanboy video good job i know how expert u are now

  • nfs2010

    Gave you an XDA link – you said that was fake. Did you believe S5 was shitty compared to Z2 in low-light even though DXO ranked them at the same spot? Last two pictures at this link. Well, they’re lying too. You’re the new prophet on earth – LMAO.

    http://www.cnet.de/88129115/samsung-galaxy-s5-und-sony-xperia-z2-im-kamervergleich/

  • Abdul Ghani

    my lord did i ever said samsung camera is best ,(clearly said i hate s6 camera)please dont be a faggot fanboy just admit xperia camera is still not good as it sounds and dxomark is shit , showing lumia 1020 is shitteir than s6,note 4,iPhone 6,xperia z3+,z3,z2, iPhone 5,and galaxy s5 best joke from them ever anyway ,good luck man have fun with ur xperia

  • illstplaya .

    If you were actually paying attention they are testing new phones. The lumia is pretty old now.

  • nfs2010

    You’re denser than shit. I said S6 is the best rated camera by multiple sites and Xperia did better than S6 in low-light, which is a feat. Also check the breakdown of 1020 score on DXO. They said it’s very good, but fell behind in some areas (that don’t matter much to many people). But their scoring system has to include those anyway. Have fun finding a phone that can beat your bulky qx30.

  • Naail Zahid

    You do know that G lens stands for the glass quality, not relative to the processors or imaging chip…right?
    G lens is a technology that sony developed to coat their lenses with dust/humidity resistance and extra clear light absorption.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Well we have Abdul Ghani to do his job today

  • Abdul Ghani

    so u think xperia camera is the best ?

  • Abdul Ghani

    looks like uve never used a real camera and never saw a clean image forever i guess so have fun with shit pictures …..FWI qx30 is not bulky its awesome to carry if u know how to carry a camera and take a good picture

  • Abdul Ghani

    hahaha what the hell is @Akand is saying G lens is heavy looks like xperiablog experts are better than sonys G lens team

  • nfs2010

    So you want a phone that can beat QX30. OMFG – that’s what I said at the beginning. But you kept blabbering in all directions. Only an idiot will buy a QX30 over an RX100 that fits in pockets just as well.

  • Abdul Ghani

    qx100 is rx100 wow have some info this was fun faggot fanboy

  • nfs2010

    Hey faggy, QX30 is not RX100 though, Dense PoS

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Everyone knows how good lumia 1020 was. But it doesnt mean the lumia 1020 comes with no flaws. The 25mm with 6 lens had the soft edges effect in photo. The low lights performence from lumia far behind current flagship. when taking a picture without using xenon. The low lights in manual mode required long xpose and can be done with tripod and only apply in still image captured. the moving image in low lights can only create good result when the xenon is trigger and the focus issue raise cause xenon cannot be used as led to lights up the subject and lets system to focus. In low lights without xenon captured moving subject, 1020 result really a messed compared other flagship using high iso option. The leaked of realtime HDR in lumia also the reason lumia losing some point. Lumia 1020 no doubt one of the best camera in smartphone but some missing features makes lumia user want to hve it in future 1030 which is the other current flgship already had. Its not only detail metters, but the overall canvas .

  • Abdul Ghani

    are u delusional first u claim u want rx100 in pocket and i told there is one qx100.. i didnt buy doesnt means qx30 sucks seriously u are one real faggot fanboy ever

  • Raphael

    S6 Edge got a much better rating.

  • Abdul Ghani

    because dxomark is shit and have fake results

  • nfs2010

    Aww faggy, trying to save your ass with off-topic QX100.

    QX30 -> 1/2.3″ (7.82mm) Exmor R® CMOS sensor

    RX 100 -> 1.0″ (13.2 x 8.8mm) Exmor™ CMOS sensor, aspect ratio 3:2

    Yep – QX30 IS a PoS next to RX100

  • Abhinav Tella

    If only they fixed auto mode… Physical camera quality itself is a non issue though.

  • Abdul Ghani

    so how is xperia z3+ good vs lumia 1020? i have tested with latest firmware z2 vs 1520 latest firmware taken indoor outdoor and low light with and without flash in all conditions 1520 images looked better on my pc z2 failed miserably from that point i know dxomark is shit

  • Abdul Ghani

    what a mindfucked faggot rx100=qx100 same tech

  • nfs2010

    Hey Fergie, read your posts from the beginning & it was all about QX30 & I said RX100 is better than QX30. Gosh, some people are thick

  • Abdul Ghani

    retards will always be faggots and ur the biggest one

  • Timel

    Agree, full mannual controls is the need and seriously improve auto mode and then Sony Xperia will rise…

    P.s I don’t trust in DXOMARK as well, even I know that they’re pretty scientific testing, I believe in the result of real world testing more. That’s so funny that the smartphone like Nokia 808 pureview and Lumia 1020 are lower than Z1, Z2, Z3, S5, S6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, LOL it’s absolutely bullshit!

  • Abdul Ghani

    u wanted a pocket size rx100 there is one qx100 aaahhh i guess u are one delusional mindfucked faggot

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Well.. The result i seeing when comparing z2 with lumia 1520 are not to diff. Both having pro n cons. But lumia 1520 had rich captured and the result are stunning. But just like i said before, the point is made from overall performence video n camera . not only depending in certain features. If z2 had nokia rich captured the image result will be equaly the same with lumia 1520 with rich captured mode.

  • Thariq Mohammed

    Really amazing, I didn’t get such in my z2

  • nfs2010

    I said I’d buy RX100 over QX30. What’s that have anything to do with QX100? Retarded lowlife PoS, get your illiterate ass over to a school.

  • Raphael

    I’m also very suspicious. DxO Analyzer is probably a great product BUT the dxo.com website under Customers section states that “all of the top ten DSC manufacturers are DxO Analyzer customers as well as the top brands of smartphone and camera module”, including Samsung (and probably Sony). That’s an obvious conflict of interest. IMO that makes the value of their ratings close to NULL.

  • Timel

    You shot in manual mode?

  • Timel

    Sorry but I don’t trust in DXOMARK, even I know that they’re pretty scientific testing, I believe in the result of real world testing more. That’s so funny that the smartphone like Nokia 808 pureview and Lumia 1020 are lower than Z1, Z2, Z3, S5, S6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, LOL, it’s absolutely bullshit!

  • mountain

    Nope. Was in superior auto all the way.

  • Abdul Ghani

    so fucking buy rx100 i have qx30 which can take amazing pictures and qx100 is rx100 same technology but easy to carry like qx30 faggot retard

  • Abdul Ghani

    there is a new faggot his name @nfs2010:disqus read his comments

  • Timel

    Wow! Cool Sony is coming back!!

  • Aiden Pearce

    Hey buddy just wanted to ask how much free internal memory you got in the phone out of the box?
    I gt a hands on yest but couldn’t remember to check that out.
    Btw shots are better this time from Sony!!!

  • nfs2010

    21.6 GB free space out of the box

  • nfs2010

    One illiterate fool with two word vocab “Retard = Abdul”, “Faggot = Ghani “

  • Abdul Ghani

    if z1 z2 z3 z3+ had nokia type software it could blow everyone in the competition that everyone has to admit xperia images sometimes are oversharp outdoor daylight i mean but indoor and low light soft and too much noise

  • Svnjay

    Haha, you sound butthurt Timel.

  • Timel

    I’m right here guys ^_^

    Oh and according to the bullshit DxOMark, S6 edge camera is the best anyway (better than Z3+)

  • Timel

    HOW? -_-

  • Timel

    @Abdul @nfs2010

    Please stop flirting with each other

  • vigneshprince

    its all in your hands and creativity, the photos will look great, in z2 also.

  • ramuk

    Before talking about shit about other person look at yourself what kind of retard you are. If anything nfs2010 is one of the coolest people here on xperiablog who has enough technical knowledge to defend his claim whereas you are a moron who has practically zero technical knowledge to back up your comments.

    And yeah, like we are going to believe a moron over DxOmark rating which is known photography world as the best source for photography reference. Try to appreciate Sony’s effort. Z3+ is much better than its predecessors while its not as good as Note 4/S6 it has much improved camera. And to let you know – your camera analysis is shitty like rest of the comment you post.

  • Abdul Ghani

    Actually u and nfs are those type of people if dxomark put xperia on the lower side like 6th position like the lumia 1020, both of u would rage at dxomark mark that its fake, now u are praising because its on 3rd. So to sum it up u guys are a pure blind faggot fanboy retards

  • nfs2010

    LMAO – I guess we should give it up. As I said, his vocab is very limited. Everyone should believe that fool cause the rest of the word is lying

    “Retard = Abdul”, “Faggot = Ghani “

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Guys we got ourselves another Timel…. What the fuck is wrong with these people and their love to Samsung?? :s

  • Timel

    why are you so obsessed with Samsung?

  • Timel

    Of course, he does.

  • ZeRo+

    Daylight samples looks not so good, like from Lg G4 & SGS6, i don’t talking about Lumia 1020…

  • Timel

    claiming that DxOMark is the best source for photography reference, it shows that you’re such a narrow minded person, there’re many people (including photographers, end-users) that disagree with DxOMark…

    DxOMark said S6 edge camera is the best, while many eyes said Lumia 1020 is much better. Do you really think that Z3+ camera is much better than Nokia 808 pureview and Lumia 1020 camera? seriously? Are you blind? you don’t even care the real world result… What a shame.

    The reason that you believe in DxOMark because DxOMark is the only source that has always said that Xperia cameras are great, but when you always turn down Displaymate, because Displaymate never ever say that Sony displays are great, Displaymate has always said that Samsung Amoled Display are the best display, Xperia fanboys never believe in displaymate which is known display world as the best source for mobile display reference.

  • nfs2010

    DXO is a better source than you & your friend, A. Ghani, though ^_^

    You simply can’t compare DXO to displaymate. DXO is way more well-known than DM. Every camera forum talks about them. But you won’t find any TV or other display forums talking much about DM. You can just tell by looking at the poor DM web site. Now in DM’s defense, they do qualify all their claims with “the best ….that WE HAVE EVER TESTED” and they simply don’t test much! They mostly test Samsung & iphones!

  • Aiden Pearce

    Cool!!
    Saw an indian review and they showed only around 16gb damn. Android system taking upto around 9gb. Darn useless if its the same for retail unit(the reviewer had the demo unit).

  • Alvin

    In fact.. They can do a whole lot much much even freakin better than this. I have a feeling that Z5 will be a killer. Not just in camera. In everything.

  • Alvin

    Did you see that I said “just kidding hahaha” I’m just kidding mate hahaha

  • Alvin

    Umm.. You just called my uncle a fag and my father a retard

  • nfs2010

    I’m so sorry. I got so pissed off by the abuse of those two words by Mr. Ghani. No offence to anyone else :(

  • ZeRo+

    Do you know, new Honor 7 has 20mp. Sony IMX230 sensor, with sapphire lenses

  • ramuk

    LOL, Its so funny to see Samsung’s Paid bitch Timel now trying to justify Displaymate’s credibility. Like you said Displaymate is not the industry standard reference point for display tech. Anyway Timel and other moron bring 1020 to question DxOmark credibility, But I ask the credibility of their brain function. These morons can’t even read and they can’t even understand the fact that DxOmark rate the overall performance of the camera, it doesn’t just rate the IQ of the pic. Morons like Abdul and Timel only looks at the image and try to measure the quality of the camera only based on the performance of Noise and Texture ( in which 1020 shines) but they forget that 1020 has relatively poor score in Color, Stabilization, Artifacts. And not to forget 1020 has shitty video capabilities. And also it takes freaking 8-10 secs to take a single shot. They forget that its the combine score of the all the aspect of the camera not just two or three aspect. Kinda sad actually. Pity Timel.

  • Alvin

    But that is the fact.. I agree about you called Sony’s camera is a bullshit, display is good but not in s6 level, performance in benchmark is lower than average this year’s flagship, and everything more. But for everyday performance, microsd card, especially battery life, S6 is lower. But even if it’s like that, Sony should improve more, they can do better. I’m disappointed at Sony because of Z3+, actually. Even I can’t believe that I said that s6 design is at the same level (if not, better) than z3+. I just don’t want to say that, like I just shamed myself

  • Alvin

    Hahaha alright

  • Alvin

    I’d rather test everything myself

  • Alvin

    How do you know it’s fake, sayang…

  • Alvin

    Especially the auto mode. I’m sick of it like for real

  • Alvin

    Umm.. What if they also reviewed the whole thing? How about if they reviewed display, battery, and everything…? That will be a shocker.. Hahahha

  • Timel

    Gosh! your comment make me SUPER excited LOL

  • Alvin

    Yes he does

  • Alvin

    If only Sony would read all your comments.. They will be pissed and starting to bankrupt haha

    Would they just listen to us

  • Andrea

    Wow! fantastic photos !

  • Alvin

    Are you that sincere? HAHAHAHA

  • nfs2010

    You’re so right. Here is DM about S5’s display

    http://displaymate.com/Galaxy_S5_ShootOut_1.htm

    “The Galaxy S5 Cinema Mode provides the most accurate Color and White Point calibration for the Standard sRGB”

    But Samsung’s another who*e, PA, couldn’t agree (proly didn’t get paid as much =) ). I mean greenish tiger – that was so hilarious

    http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-Galaxy-S5s-screen-is-far-from-the-best-heres-why_id56255

    Then back in 2012, about pentile

    http://mashable.com/2012/05/11/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-pentile/

    says Raymond Soneira, president of DisplayMate. “These are phoney pixels. A 1,280 x 720 PenTile display is much less sharp than a true 1,280 x 720 RGB display. ”

    Notice how pentile part disappeared on DM’s following reviews.

    You have to struggle to take DM seriously

  • nfs2010

    Also about the 1020, I think I should copy/paste from DXO since those two clowns can’t find it. I doubt they will get idea of the combined score though =)

    http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Nokia-Lumia-1020-overview-Has-the-best-got-better

    “In summary then, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is one of the best camera phones for stills, but its video performance could be improved which lowers the overall ranking to fourth place.

    In fact, under low light conditions the Lumia 1020 outperforms rivals, producing still images with low noise and detail preservation that are simply the best we’ve ever seen from a smartphone.”

    this score is an average of still and video. I guess lumia 1020 doesn’t fare very well in video recording

    I know, right? But still how the heck it doubled up on Z3+: I wonder it has something to do with those pre-installed camera modes. Ironically, those are the ones that caused ovearheating and most people will never use them =) Sony does funny things occasionally

  • Timel

    Yes ^_^

    I’m waiting for the Xperia Z5, give a Sony Mobile one last chance.

  • joseph carmine nero

    Actually Z3+ has a better display than S6 in every aspect other than color production.check you tube vids like this for lowlight comparison of both

  • Utsav Shah

    The white balance is drastically improved! And that texture in low light pictures.
    Damn, I wish My Z3 will get this improvements in Android 5.1.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    wow sony nowdays cant get enough compliment without being troll.. Popcorn anyone??

  • Timel

    I know what is DxO, the scores that DxO gave to cameras are from overall performance…but DxO’s high scores don’t always mean high picture quality

    People like you said DxO is the best source for camera reference but everytime when do the blind test, you will choose the best picture which will end up with Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020

  • inspire

    You really can’t have a fruitful debate with some people when they presume themselves as correct and others as fan boys no matter what and throw words like “fag***”, “sh**”, “a** kisser”, “frying pan” and so on…
    So I’d not even debate with such guys (who think their Lenovo a7000 is the world and the flagship are just nothing more than meh”… Well, that kind of gives away where these commenters are from)

    Wait so even though he “didn’t focus the s6 properly” it still came in first place? And that makes him a Sony fanboy??

    Noob, u nothing understood i know about this. I want say that IMX230 is very innovation sensor, it`s not usual sensor for samsung and apple phones. Everyone thought that IMX230 sensor will be installed in Xperia Z4 Instead, Sony sells this innovation sensor for its rivals (( That i want say!

    what camera sensor does Z3+/Z4 have? IMX 220 or 230?

    Damn thats a lot of heavy os..

  • Abdul Ghani

    Ahh thats why u got offended. You have z3+ have fun with the frying pan,plus I see ur DM post all u do is copy paste from Websites u got no real knowledge, like u copy when I told u RETARD FAGGOT u got no game because ur the real one such a looser

  • Abdul Ghani

    lol how many phones u own ? lenovo i just a phone i bought for fun.currently i own z2 z1 note 4 s5 lg g3 and zr plus i also had a lumia 1520 i sold that one few weeks ago hated the windows software (not its camera it was really good). coming back to the point lenovo a 7000 is a phone with mediatek chip which runs all games smoothly and doesn’t over heat like note 4 and new 810 phones.Ohhh one more thing how is qx30 a bad camera ?

  • Utsav Shah

    and where did you read that? I have seen multiple sites writing shits about it’s camera. (including gsmarena and cnet)
    Though I have seen some great shots that sony is posting on instagram to promote the device.

  • Abdul Ghani

    dont use iso chart or gray chart use color poster first then ull see sony still needs lots of work left to improve the software because we dont take black and white pictures we take color pictures XD

  • Abdul Ghani

    IMX220 same as z1 z2 z3

  • Shubham Mutreja

    u can see it for ur self too in link
    they also have color poster for comparison

  • Shubham Mutreja

    i have seen on their photo compare tool accidentally
    i have posted a link too !!

  • Abdul Ghani

    i did used it and sony phones have some roughness on it u can see too

  • Shubham Mutreja

    its on corners not on whole photo

  • Abdul Ghani

    where are u looking from mobile or pc use a pc ull see clearly z3+ has more noise than m4 and m4 has little extra exposure its good m4 has less noise but why not z3+ lol

  • Shubham Mutreja

    thats why lol
    m4 has less noise than z3+
    also m4 can have a update to fix that!!

  • pytajnik

    This only proves that all these test are worth essentially nothing. Everyone who’s not severely blind will tell you that pictures from xperias are 2010-ish.

    It should be ‘loser’ =) =) =) OMG, this illiterate PoS Abul is so hilarious. See guys, I told ya how limited vocab he has =) Hey monkey Abul, keep on dancing.

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Yeah but what ill say that is if these devices are using sonys own sensor wouldnt you expect xperias to have the best cameras? They dont though do they so like I said the companies must tweak the camera well and and use a really good app

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Either that or sony thought 32GB? We can add loads of bloatware with that so they did I guess but I have no idea what exactly it could be and im sure its only around 4gb on current xperia

  • Abdul Ghani

    U will be dancing like a monkey when ur z3+ when its heating in ur pants hahahahahha

  • KMNH

    LOOOOL, glad I’m getting an iPhone next

  • Abdul Ghani

    I say just wait till September before getting iPhone after sonys event buy anything u want

  • KMNH

    Yeah, that goes without saying,

  • Alvin

    Geekyranjit. That’s his name if I’m not mistaken. He reviewed m4’s camera and got a very good results there. Just see it for yourselves.

  • Alvin

    So my z3’s display is better than s5..? And s6’s display compared to s5’s is far different? Or still orange-ish red?

  • Alvin

    I already saw in like days ago

  • Shubham Mutreja

    look below the iso chart it has some colours and sony m4 renders them so nicely

  • Shubham Mutreja

    see the colors how they are nicly rendered
    look even better than 930

  • Shubham Mutreja

    writing about camera what will be advantages of camera 2 api aside from manual controls?
    i mean can 3rd party cameras use their own algorithms for processing?

  • Shubham Mutreja

    they must have reviewed pre production models like gsma did.
    Thats why m4 aqua had 57 hour endurance in gsma
    but now it is 81 hour!!!!! in retail model

  • Shubham Mutreja

    people think camera picture is only about details
    JUST ZOOM IT ZOOM IT and FUCK Zx Camera sucks!!! (x=1,2,3)
    its about contrast, colors, dynamic range,cinematography, stabilization,
    noise reduction,exposure, low light performance, autofocus, bokehs,color reproduction etc etc………………………….

  • Abdul Ghani

    algorithm and processing is done inside sonys firmware no third party app can change that camera2api if it adds raw then we can processes the image by ourself which is kinda a headache

  • Emil Oskarsson

    So thats your solution to everything, good job man ;D

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Because obviosuly you are ;D

    garden pic looks great!

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Thanks

  • These are great photos. Both showing off the phone performance, and also your composition skills.

  • Hope so. I’m skipping this handset, as I’m sure a lot of people are.

    I would say that I’d like to see a Z3 with the latest software put up against the Z3+ as we all know there were various tweaks made since the original was probably tested by a lot of people.

  • Utsav Shah

    Thank you for the compliment!

    Yap!! G Lens actually allows more lights and details to be processed. Bigger sensor, more lights and details. A lot of work to do. But workers (camera algorithm) aren’t that good. Almost same workers with more physical power, improvements won’t be significant. Physical power(stronger CPU) is the main boost. That’s why results aren’t improving significantly. But if well experienced and wise workers could be combined with more physical strength, then result will be significantly improved.
    Sony should improve its camera algorithm a lot now as CPU has gotten enough strength.
    However, power of CPU is also responsible for better image process. Right?

  • Naail Zahid

    Ummm what? Physical power? A cpu with super power isn’t required for great photos – ask iPhone fans. You need to fix the software problems before looking forward to hardware issues.
    The hardware is all there to make a perfect camera – just the software is crap.

    G Lens + Exmor RS + 20.1 mp sensor should equal godly pics, yet somehow sony even messed that up :/

  • Akand

    You might know that Apple A9 chip is still superior in real life performance.
    I am not denying that they haven’t messed up with software, but still CPU power has influence on post image processing. That’s why having same sensor from Z1 to Z3, picture has improved relatively.
    But yes! They failed to develop a proper software.

    Good point. But I have owned a lot of flagship phones with amazing cameras (including the nokia 808) and I have come to a conclusion. Screw DxOmark, I will test the image quality myself…

  • Kalaboso

    To be honest. Even if just an ordinary person were to be shown the S6 and the 1020, that person would quickly choose the S6 over the 1020, just because of the huge difference in speed. The image quality is not that far really. Get on with the times man. The 1020 is now an extinct dinosaur…
