The Sony Xperia Z2 features the same 20.7MP camera as the previous Xperia Z1 with a 1/2.3″ Exmor RS sensor coupled with Sony’s G Lens and BIONZ image processing engine. With a superior Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM, we are wondering if Sony has improved its imaging capabilities on the latest Xperia Z2.
To find out, we’ve taken a couple of sample shots with both Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z1 at the recent Jakarta event for comparison. While the cameras are the same, the results are surprisingly different.
Check out the comparison samples after the break.
During the event, the ambient lighting at the experience centre was rather bad with the random change of colours from time to time. However from the samples taken, the Xperia Z2 seems to be better with clearer details and less noise. The Xperia Z1 used in this comparison was running on the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean firmware with the Build Number 14.2.A.1.136.
