While the Sony Xperia Z2 has been launched in countries such as Singapore, its release in North America has been delayed. In a way this is semi-good news since it allows other reviewers to get their hands on the device and run some tests to help you make a more informed decision, although if you’ve had your heart set on it, we can only imagine the wait is excruciating.
That being said, the Sony Xperia Z2’s camera is no slouch as we found out during our hands-on preview of the device. In fact according to DxOMark, they have found that in terms of smartphone cameras, the Sony Xperia Z2 takes the cake and even manages to beat out the Nokia 808 PureView, a device which has been regarded by many to have a pretty damn good camera, so that’s saying something.
According to their findings, it seems that the Xperia Z2 is currently the best smartphone camera to date and is sitting at the top above the 808 PureView, the Xperia Z1, the iPhone 5s, the Galaxy S4, and even the Lumia 1020, all of which have proven to sport pretty good cameras which is a testament to the Xperia Z2’s camera capabilities.
However not everything is perfect as DxOMark did find a couple of imperfections. For example they claim that the white balance on the photos was not perfect, neither was its color shading, and there were even some flaring issues in some photos, but we guess these issues did not impact the overall score too much. Also unless you’re a professional photographer, chances are these are some issues that you might have missed out on unless you were looking for it specifically.
