They have good color, contrast and saturation, but detail and high ISO quality doesn’t come close to the Nokia 808 which seems to be the king, for photography at least.

The13MP didn’t really add much comparing to Nokia 920 and iPhones 4GS / 5 photos.

Less than expected.

#4 Sony Xperia Z

Sony Xperia Z runs on Quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processors and boasts of 2GB RAM. The screen is 5-inch TFT Reality display with Bravia Engine 2 for shaper picture and better clarity. The phone comes with a 13.1 MP rear-end snapper and 2 MP fully HD front camera. Slightly thicker than the ultra-slim smartphones, Xperia Z is 7.9 mm thick. Specifications apart, the phone is packed with a host of other features. The highlight of the phone is it is a “bath-friendly” phone. Sony Xpaeria Z is water resistant and can survive for 30 minutes in one meter of water. Definitely good news for those who bundle their phones in plastic at the mere sight of water! And that is not all. Sony Xperia Z comes with a special Battery Stamina mode. The mode reportedly improves standby time by four times. The apps are automatically shut when the screen is locked and are re-activated when the screen is brought back on.

#5 Pity The Sadness

All recent (read: Exmor RS) Xperia shots are awfully noisy, even in good light conditions. The advertised low light capabilities of the sensor are non-existent.

And what’s the worst thing you can do to a very very noisy 13 MP shot? Compress it down to a 3 MB jpeg, turning all noise into horrible compression artifacts.

Sony’s just doing _everything_ wrong with their recent phones.
