Sony Xperia Z1 low-light samples roundup

Sony Xperia Z1 low-light samples roundup
The Sony Xperia Z1 might actually break the company's reputation for "much ado about nothing" mobile cameras that have been haunting the image comparisons for a while with the Xperia line.

The combination of a 1/2.3″ large 20.7 megapixel Exmor RS sensor, Sony's trademark BIONZ image processing engine, and 27 mm wide-angle f/2.0 Sony G Lens seems to finally hit the nail right on the head when it comes to Android photography. 

Samsung's Galaxy S4 and the optically stabilized LG G2 are the current leaders here, but judging from the shots taken with an Xperia Z1 of night time Singapore below, we might have a new leader on the Android block, which is thin and waterproof at that. Bear in mind that some of the photos are zoomed in utilizing the pixel-binning Clear Zoom feature, and the results are far better than the useless digital zoom most phone offer.

Check these out and tell us what you think, we'll have the Z1 very soon and be able to test for you if indeed its camera is this good with extensive shootout series. For the full-size samples, hit up the source link below.
