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.


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.
