Sony Xperia Z: "Chasseur d'Images" review

Mobile Review
Introduction | Android enhanced by Sony | Handling and ergonomics | A little disappointing video photo results | Measurements | Conclusion

Reference Pattern DxOMark

These two enlargements (central part of the pattern below); a photo in low light under tungsten lighting and another in full light show that the Sony Xperia Z delivers consistent pictures which will appear very satisfactory on the screen of a phone or a tablet, but these images are limited if we move to a purely photographic use, with enlargements and printouts. The noise is well managed, but when enlarged the 13 Mpix images of the Xperia Z lack both texture and fine detail.

The colors are very well rendered, regardless of the conditions of lighting, with natural tones and without marked drift. On outside subjects, in daylight, a few white balance errors were noted.
