Worse than the iPhone 7 and Asus Zenfone 5: the Sony Xperia XZ3 camera did not impress DxOMark specialists

DxOMark specialists got to last year's flagship Sony Xperia XZ3, released in the fall - and were disappointed

the capabilities of his camera.

What camera

Let's remember that the flagship received a 19-megapixela single main Motion Eye camera with f/2.0 optics, electronic stabilization, support for 4K format and high-speed Full HD video shooting at 960 frames per second.

Advantages and disadvantages

In photo mode in DxOMark the exactautofocus, very good textures and pleasant color display. There were more disadvantages: slow autofocus, limited dynamic range in any conditions, poor photo quality in low light conditions, artifacts, lack of bokeh effect, excessive saturation.

In video mode, the camera shows the exactautofocus, lack of “noise” and good stabilization. The downsides include inconsistent colors, slow autofocus, lack of detail in low light, and limited dynamic range in bright light.


As a result, Sony Xperia XZ3 received 76 for photospoints for video - 85. On average, this is 79 points for the camera. This is much worse than modern flagships, which score more than 100 points, and even mid-range devices. For example, the iPhone 7, Asus Zenfone 5 and even the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, released in 2017, perform better.
