Sony Xperia Z1, Sony’s trump card at IFA 2013 Berlin event and years second flagship device after Sony Xperia Z. Xperia Z1 is insanely powerful when it comes to specs, it is powered by 2.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Quad core processor, 2 GB RAM with Adreno 330 GPU and 16 GB onboard memory. One of the most fascinating features of Xperia Z1 is its 20.7 MP with Sony’s G Lens 1/2.3 – (  Lens comes with F2.0 and wide angle  27mm as well as 3x clear image zoom ) type Exmor RS for mobile CMOS image sensor and BIONZ for Mobile – Image processing Engine where it has TimeShift Burst feature which  takes 61 images in 2 seconds.

Sony claims Xperia Z1 as a revolutionary camera that has been put in a waterproof smartphone yet. But not to forgot the might camera of great Nokia Lumia 1020. Undoubtedly Lumia 1020 sports the best camera in a smartphone yet featuring a whooping 41 megapixels cam with both Xenon and LED flash combination, aperture size F2.2 and Optical image stabilization ( OIS ) which is missing from Xperia Z1.

P.S. For authenticity of pics, do check the EXIF data of them in full resolution.

If you have clearly seen the above images in zoom mode, at daylight Xperia Z1 cam showed more detailed pics ( true color detailing in pics lacked ) and at night times pics taken from Lumia 1020 were a lot warmer ( not reflecting the true color ) as compared to pics taken from Xperia Z1.

[ UPDATE ]

Folks at TBreak said that they used “auto mode” in both phones, and the pictures were taken as what a normal user will take not a pro.

As Lumia sports 41 MP cam so much detailing in pics can be seen when you zoom them, check the pics in cropped 1:1 ratio.

Well after scaling down the pics to smaller sizes, pics from Xperia Z1 looked more pleasant though it doesn’t mean the it has a better or worse camera.

Xperia Z1 has already been on pre-order across Europe, if you haven’t booked it yet, Book it now.

Well we want our reader to judge from above pics which pics they liked most. Please drop your comments regarding the pictured uploaded above…What we think Xperia Z1 has produced good pics…

What you say…

    This is just copying the first handson kinda results the later more method test isnt showed here because it clearly makes the Lumia 1020 turn circles around the Z1. A much more capable phone

    I prefer Sony at all but this comparison is not good. The truth is that Lumia 1020 has better quality of pics and vids. See on different sites or Youtube.
