Sony Xperia Z2
Sony Xperia Z2 has been consistent with its camera quality. There’s no secret to it, honestly– it just has a 20.7MP camera that knocks all other competitors off the table. It topped the highly prestigious DxOmark mobile photography rankings by clocking in a total score of 79.

Sony Xperia Z2 gets ranked #1 for mobile photography

Sony’s newest Xperia Z2 smartphone was able to knock down Nokia’s esteemed 808 PureView, which only had 77 points. The third and fourth spots were taken over by Apple’s iPhone 5s, and Xperia Z2’s older brother, the Sony Xperia Z1. Both devices had the same score at 76 points.

The score for Sony Xperia Z2 is 81 points, all thanks to its wonderful sensor that impressed the people at DxO with its crisp and detailed preservation of images regardless of the lighting, well-appointed noise levels, quick auto-focus, and amazing color quality.

In terms of video, Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone received a score of 73 points. It had decent stabilization, with minimal noise levels. However, the autofocus for the video was a bit dicey, along with the color shading as well.

But then, why would you focus on the negative side if the positive side greatly outweighs the former? Sony may not Be One of the first brands that come up when the topic of smartphones is raised, but they’re very much on point regarding the features of their own devices. At 20.7 megapixels, it’s like having a pocket-sized DSLR camera. You can have professional-looking selfies and food shots whenever you want!

There’s no hiding the fact that it’s clear that Sony has schemes up their sleeves to be on top of the smartphone ranks. They’ve already established themselves as a reputable appliance and electronics manufacturer, so the mobile phone business is the next logical step for world domination. Do you own a Sony Xperia Z2? Let us know what you personally think about how you’re liking the Z2’s camera so far in the comments below.

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact review (Dutch)
Sony Xperia Z1 Compact review (Dutch) De Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is de eerste high-end Androidtelefoon die een compact scherm heeft. De Z1 Compact is met zijn 4,3"-scherm niet te groot en kan het qua specs toch tegen de huidige toptoestellen opnemen. De Sony Xperia Z1 Compact heeft bijvoorbeeld een snelle Snapdragon 800-processor gekoppeld met 2GB werkgeheugen. Verder is de smartphone uitgerust met een 20,7-megapixelcamera en uitgebreide multimedia-apps. De Xperia Z1 Compact is ook qua design een kleine versie van de Z1 en heeft dus hetzelfde strakke en luxe ontwerp. Daarnaast is hij opnieuw waterdicht. Het enige waar wat beknibbeld is, is de schermresolutie. Die is 720p in plaats van 1080p, maar daar merk je op het kleinere scherm van de telefoon niet eens zo heel veel van.
