Camera comparison: Sony Xperia Z vs Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920

0. phoneArena 15 Feb 2013, 09:37 posted on

Ladies and gents, it is time for another camera comparison between the top smartphones in existence. And without a doubt, all eyes are on the Sony Xperia Z, which is equipped with the company's new Exmor RS camera sensor. With 13 million pixels and perks like HDR video mode, Sony's top-of-the-line handset should be a great performer, but will it manage to beat the fierce competition?...

I mean really PA? I remember the last photo shoot without the z and the ip won with a slight margin over the lumia (pr 1.0) now that it is pr1.1 which is definitely better.. Samsung takes the cake for most situations including night and video are you kidding me pa????..really disappointed:(((

I bet phonearena has set the cameras quality to lowest settings possible. They do this in iphone vs android test all the time.

Another joke! Where is HOX? GS3 night shots are super crap compared to HOX. I owned both of them. And Xperia T is better than both. There is no way Xperia Z will take worse pictures than Xperia T. GS3 should not even be in the comparison. How much did Samsung pay you PA ?

Before buying an device, always need to check as much as possible different sources to get real understanding about one or other device. And that's why I never trust photo and video samples from single source because they easily may be "corrected" by an biased reviewer!
