Sony Xperia Z2 vs iPhone 5s vs Lumia 1520 low-light camera comparison

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Feb 2014, 03:00

The Z2 was set against the iPhone 5s, and the Lumia 1520, using the three phones in the same way - to snap a picture of the contents in a box, mimicking low-light conditions. The image from the Z2 looked much brighter, at least on the phone's display, as if there has been plenty of light around, indicating slower shutter speeds, higher ISO, or a combination of both might have been in play...

low light...vs auto. The auto with led off is not so he can turn off the flash, the nokia uses the led as a way to sense and balance unless your using manual mode. And there was no low light for the nokia, yes there is an option for it, and they didn't use it. derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Wah so gud for sony z2
However did anyone has exp in sony z1 camera? I try in a shop, when u use the z1 camera in fully zoomed, the picture is freaking blurred. However, when I use galaxy note 3 and iPhone, the quality much better when I zoom it. Is there something wrong with sony z1. I try it not juz one store.

So on the 1520 you have the option for iso and shutter speed and you use auto?

In a box that is blocking the sensor?

People really do have no clue

this is nothing new ...no offence...sony claimed same thing about xperia z1 but once the device was released they changed the tagline to best water proof cameraphone from best cameraphone...once everyone reviewed it and compared with other smartphones its camera was slammed to be far behind every flagship available by every website and i too agree they had the h/w for better camera with a great sensor they blow it with their algorithms..

SONY made their homework step by step, you could feel the improvement on all previous Z models.
this time they will blow away everything!!

if you want to be a trendsetter change your mind in time.
