Sony Xperia 5 Camera Report – DxOMark Test Results Are Declared


Sony Xperia 5 camera has been recently tested
out, and its report has just issued by DxOMark. Sony Xperia 5 claims to have the same class
of camera as Galaxy Note 8, and iPhone 8 Plus has. The latest smartphone examined by DxOMark
is Sony Xperia 5 which was revealed at IFA in September 2019, the Xperia 5 is a mid-range
device with triple cameras, all with 12 MP sensors. The Sony Xperia 5 was released a few months
after the flagship-grade Xperia 1. Before heading to the details, if you are

hardware, it uses an identical triple-camera setup as the Xperia 1. Though there were improvements over the Xperia
1’s cameras, DxOMark wasn’t impressed with the Xperia 5. It received an overall score of 95 (the Xperia
1 got 91) with a 101 for photography and 83 for video. Slight improvements in photography are cited
in exposure, textures, artifacts, night, and wide-angle shots with small declines in color,
autofocus, and zoom. DxOMark calls these differences marginal,
deeming both devices comparable in image quality. Video performance was in the same boat – marginal
differences but comparable results. Now let’s talk about its weaknesses of the
overall camera performance. The first drawback cited was with dynamic
range – the Xperia 5’s is limited, with highlights easily clipping in high-contrast scenes. Color rendition could also be improved with
a more neutral white balance. Though low-light performance is not bad, it
tends to generate a lot of noise in dimmer edges of the shot. Though autofocus wasn’t the slowest they’d
seen, it was consistent and accurate on the Xperia 5. Zoomed shots are what affected the overall
score, with unstable exposure and focus. Color fringing was also noticeable, along
with noisy edges and unrealistic details and textures. Video performance saw the same limited dynamic
range issue, with highlights regularly clipping in bright outdoor footage. There are also some inconsistencies with white
balance and unstable autofocus. The excellent news is exposure remains accurate,
and noise is well-controlled with active stabilization. The midrange smartphone was ranked alongside
the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and the Apple iPhone 8 Plus, which is excellent for a mid-ranger,
but not great for the high-end Xperia 1. We wish Sony would get the anchor out of its
pants when other smartphones with Sony-made components are performing leagues better than
its self-branded smartphones. If you have liked this video, please give
