Sony’s Xperia Z5 is one helluva camera smartphone — with the emphasis on camera. For this Android smartphone, the Japanese multinational company clearly focused on the optical hardware feature of the device by incorporating a shooter with unrivalled digital sensors.
DxOMark just released its review of the Sony Xperia Z5's camera, and the smartphone shooter received the highest ratings for the photo- and video-capturing parameters of mobile phone camera, beating the likes of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Google Nexus 6_ and Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The Android device's 23-megapixel camera is said to have the best autofocus since it delivers in all kinds of conditions. The Xperia Z5's snapper also has impressive white balance, flash exposures and even captures good details in low-lit places.
What's more striking about the Xperia Z5's camera is it really takes quality video because its image stabilization feature is unmatched and is "far ahead of the competition," as quoted by PetaPixel.
Recombu also did a review of Sony Xperia Z5's camera, and the site also has only good things to say about the device's 23-megapixel shooter, highlighting the superb performance of camera when used with Sony's Superior Auto mode.
The Superior Auto Mode does wonders whenever the camera is used in a variety of lighting. Outdoor shots are crisp and very detailed, while indoor shots are just as pleasing to the eyes even without adequate lighting.
When it comes to capturing or recording videos, the Z5's mobile camera has a choice of Full HD or 4K modes that are absolutely stellar and beyond words beautiful. The only downside with 4K video capture though is the need to have plenty of storage.
Despite the impressive camera technology the Sony Xperia Z5 flaunts, the device is not free from issues, with UberGizmo pointing out that the Compact version of the handset has overheating problems.
Users are said to be complaining that their smartphones are prone to overheating. Additionally, the Compact Z5 also has the tendency to become sluggish when it overheats, giving a laggy performance to users. Though a reboot provides temporary relief, the overheating issue continues to persist whenever the device is used.
