Sony’s latest smartphone has the best camera with Samsung in second place and the top iPhone in eighth – according to new tests.
The tests by DxOMark are both highly regarded and exhaustive – giving users an independent assessment of cameras.
Sony has positioned itself as the top camera sensor maker in the world and it also has an extensive range of cameras – so it’s no surprise its phones can take great photos and video.
The Z5 was released in New Zealand last week and costs $1200 – which puts it in the high-end range alongside flagship phones from other manufacturers.
Interestingly Sony has also put that same camera into the Z5 Compact – which is $200 cheaper.
DxOMark said the Z5 has the fastest autofocus and praised its performance in low light which earned it a score of 87.
