DxOMark says the Sony Xperia Z5's camera is the best it's tested so far
Earlier this month, when it announced the Xperia Z5, Sony said that the handset would come with "the best camera in a leading smartphone." While we've yet to review the Z5 (the device hasn't been released), the folks over at DxOMark - a website that's well known for rating all kinds of camera sensors - have already tested the smartphone, not long after testing the brand new Google Nexus 6P.

As it turns out, DxOMark gave the Xperia Z5 the best mobile photo and video scores to date: 88 and 86, respectively, putting it slightly ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (88 and 84, respectively) and the Google Nexus 6P (86, 79). DxOMark is praising the Z5's rear camera for its "impressive autofocus in all conditions, the best tested to date", as well as for its good detail preservation, good white balance and color rendering, and the low amount of noise in low light situations.

Needless to say, we'll have to test the 23 MP rear camera of the Xperia Z5 for ourselves to see if it is indeed as good as DxOMark is saying it is. Sony should release the new handset starting the coming week, for prices starting at about €699 (in Europe). Stay tuned for our Z5 review!
