Xperia XZ in camera lens scratch test

xperia-xz-camera-lens-scratch-testThe guys over at Witrigs wanted to see how the Sony Xperia XZ’s camera lens would fare when subject to various everyday items such as coins and keys. The rationale being that these can often be found in the same pocket as your phone. Well judging by the video, it is good to see the camera glass holding up very well.

The only point when it gets slightly marked was when prodding very heard with some tweezers – prior to this it had also been subjected to a screwdriver and scissors. The ring housing around the lens did get scratched though, which is what you would expect with metal rubbing against metal.

The cover on the triple imaging sensor also held up well, but was not as durable at the extreme end of testing. It was particularly susceptible to the tweezers, being scratched quite easily. You can check out the full video below.

    Finally they’re using Glass (phew)
    But it got scratched with tweezers :(

  • azzido

    It looks good, unfortunately the rest of the back including Alkaleido metal can be scratched easily so need to be very careful with this device.

    However it is good they finally use scratch resistant glass for the camera.
    It should be a standard for flagship devices nowadays.

    Meanwhile, where is Android N?

  • Battel

    good glass in stupid image quality !

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    I own Xperia XZ and it do a pretty good job for a flagship. Even in low light macro shot it still do a good job.

    Thank you for taking the risk!

  • DanielGearSolid

    you keep tweezers in your pocket?

  • DanielGearSolid

    that metal ring is the lens???? i thought it was just decorative

  • BGDoesGaming

    the guy on the video is confused lol it is just decorative. the lens is the glass which is not made from plastic this time around…..

    I own the X Performance and im more then pleased with the camera software, it has impressed me several times even at low light situations :) Anyhow just bought myself a Sony Alpha A6000 for 500 euros so will use that one more for photos now ;)

  • deekbee

    The camera has a rubbish interface and distinctly rough jpg processing.

    Its amazing that Sony can make great sensors, and great cameras (I have an old Alpha DSLR) yet their own attempts in phones really aren’t anything like as good as their dedicated bretheren.

    The A6000 is a freaking beast for the money, got one some months ago, couldnt be more happy with it. Phone cameras have a very looong way to go to match DSLR or mirror-less quality

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Yeah I have always loved taking pictures but never owned a real camera, that’s why I bought the Sony alpha a6000 and I got it home today :D Can’t wait until the weekend to try it out! :)

  • haxona

    Protip for the A6000, buy yourself a nice manual lens and use it, you will come away super cheap with stunning quality pictures. I have been doing that for a year now, first with an a5000 and now with an a6000 and it always surprises me when I find new stuff to approach. Also if you are a newbie I really advice you to go through the guides thoroughly before, give yourself an hour or two and research everything and try it on the camera. It will make a big difference to really showcase what actual cameras can do compared to phones.

  • ZoubIWah

    it should protrude a tiny bit and protect the lens actually for when the phone is on the table. works. its not a huge protection but better than having it directly against the table where you could have sand for example
    of course it doesnt matter if it gets scratched

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Bought the version which included a lens with a focal length of 16-50 and aperture 3.5-5.6. And ofc i will give it a lots of hours of testing, tweaking and learning how to proper use the camera for different conditions :D

  • ash wilson

    The plastic on the Xperia XZ is like butter, put it in a pocket with keys are you get really deep scratches. Having to send mine in for repair after like 2 weeks of use. Great phone, but Jesus

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Haha you’re right I don’t. So no need to worry about that. :D
