The camera of a current flagship smartphone went through the DxOMark test again and suffered a bitter defeat. This time it hits Sony again, the Japanese still can’t seem to keep up with the competition. The Xperia 1 had already been tested at DxOMark, which wasn’t sold until early summer after its introduction. A repeated accusation for the Japanese, who actually have a solid camera department in the house.

The quality of the camera is also always subjective because the perception is different from person to person and everyone also values ​​different details. The perfect zoom smartphone is available from Huawei, Google’s simple but high-quality all-rounder. Sony can’t keep up, at least according to DxOMark’s test criteria, in which the Xperia 1 only scored 91 points. The best smartphones currently reach more than 110 points.

Blurred details, bad exposure

DxOMark attributes the rather poor performance to bad exposure, among other things. HDR is not always active and even if it does, there is still not enough light. Same issues indoors and outdoors, the Xperia 1 photos are significantly darker compared to the results from other devices. And although there is a 2x optical zoom, the details are extremely weak compared to other devices.

You can get more information directly on DxOMark in the test. Unfortunately, the front camera couldn’t work very well either. For us, this leads us to the conclusion that Sony still has room for improvement, especially in terms of software, because the hardware hardly differs from other high-end smartphones.
