A = S6
B = IPHONE
C = Z5
Th Z5 pics are by far the worst. Over sharpening, poor details, sometimes blurry.
S6 looks nice in them all but colors are not natural at all. Still I think it wins.
It was cheating against phone c in scene 5 because if you notice ,it is in different background and it looks like image was taken more farther away then other mobiles so and it looked more zoomed even if image looked best in a camera, even then c camera should win as it beats the odds to even produce comparable images
Just went through this and saw the numbers.
A lot of people here seem to really like blasted out and over-processed images.
Cheap Chinese phones would do really well in these "tests" I guess.
S6 and Z5 share almost the same color and white balance, I could already spot w/c among the photos are produced by the 6s bec. of the yellowish tone. It's not obtrusive though. I'm excited to see if my guesses are right!
btw,i love your compare module on your site,it set your site apart from any other tech sites,but why don't you add slo mo video sample in your iso chart? you know nowadays video qulity is more and more important,you can add 60fps or 120fps images in your iso charts to compare,because someone like me really care about 60fps or 120fps image quality,it will be very nice of you to add it
Test again ???
DXO Mark already crowned Sony Xperia Z5 as the best camera phone...check for yourself!
Pls know how to use the Z5 camera properly before you conduct any stupid tests....
i know B is not satisfied to many eyes,but i must say B is the best at least on video image quality, natural noise reduction,no heavy sharpness,best dynamic range,and i know it's iphone,A is s6,too much artifacts with good details,C is sony,good in every aspect,but no one is the best,so i d say B is the best one,but i really look forward lg v10,i saw some video samples of it, very good detail and dynamic range,wanna see how it against the flagships.
Yaseen00, 22 Oct 2015Wait for the lg v10 and it will surely run circles around every phone. you are absolutely right. apples abd lagsungs are only popular by names. but it is sony that tries to give the best products to the users
LOVE YOU SONY /XPERIA
Chaostheory, 22 Oct 2015The only problem is I'm viewing on my phone screen, and unless your screen is perfectly calibr... moreno, they were not shuffled. you see a difference in field of view in the later photos for C because they are videos. when steadyshot is activated, it cuts the field of view down. that's why it tends to look similar to the rest.
I think Sony Xperia Z 5 is made with perfection , because of its design , processor , battery , the cameras and best of all its waterproof ability , which is just amazing , under water 4k videos , plus it is much more affordable than APPLE , and it beats SAMSUNG because you can add SD card for storage ...PLUS i think IOS is not a good operating system , i think walk man and other features on sony is just on point . in general Apple is only popular because of its NAME ...Also Samsung products only are good for the first few months then after they become slow and the battery spills like water .. SONY XPERIA HAVE TRIED SO HARD AND THEY SHOULD BE APPRECIATED , APPLE AND SAMSUNG ARE GOOD BUT NOT AS GOOD AS SONY , SONY FOR LIFE .......
These test are fun. I'm just not sure how valid they are. Because the pictures should reflect reality and not what the user likes to see. To that end gsmarena could include a 4th picture taken by professional camera.
I think its obvious that S6 and iphone 6s are better than z5 , all the tests prove it...and im disapionted how sony continue to fail. I would expect that the z5 could be better than the z3 camera but what i see is the same result.
in terms of this test i did clearly vote some for A and others for B, i didnt like the tons of the C.
I presume the A is the Samsung S6 , the B the iphone 6s and the C the Sony Z5
regs, 22 Oct 2015Flower test made C intentionally to look worse. Uses metering on a point outside flowers, so I... moreTOTALLY CORRECT!!
why can't these noobs realize that the auto settings change depending on the overall image being taken. if there is a bigger dark area, it will crank the iso higher to brighten the whole image since it does not have OIS to rely on long exposures. they should have tried bringing the camera closer to the subject to achieve similar scenes.
c is z5! because you are doing wrong fov (field of view) !!!! you have to move 2-3 steps forward for same window. you did wrong blind camera comparison and use a 8mp default superior auto mod on z5 please... ;)
I guess the tree cameras have very high quality cameras, when it comes to blind test it reveals how hard it is to tell which one it is. Finally it ends up to be a preference not best or worst !

ElSur, 23 Oct 2015GSM, you should really account for the different focal lengths of the cameras when doing these... moreNext to no consumers are gonna care. They just want the best camera in auto mode. They won't bother to check focal length aperture etc and if smartphone manufacturers want to have the best camera they might as well include the best sensors on their devices.
