random, 08 Oct 2016for what? they can't use their own sensor properly. They can't? Then why did the XZ crushed the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 in low light?
Kumar123456, 08 Oct 2016I'm laughing. Sony now giving their latest and greatest camera sensor to Chinese companies yet... moreIf so, then why did the Z5 got 87 last year (the highest score in 2015 DxOMark ranking)? Just because you hate Sony for being the best doesn't mean you don't look at its pros but nonetheless focus on its minor and simple cons that even its contenders have worse. Higher number doesn't always mean better. It's like saying f20 is better than f1.7 because it is larger number. IMX398 isn't the best from Sony. Also, Sony's current flagship, the Xperia XZ, uses the newer version of the IMX300 used in the Z5 which is still better than this IMX398.
Adrian K, 08 Oct 2016and Sony dont have the best camera in a smartphone !! :)))Yeah like the Z5 got 87 last year which is the highest point achieved from 2015. And where is Oppo from that? At 0? Hahahahaha you made my day 😂😂😂😂
anonymous, 08 Oct 2016sony should reserve their sensors for their own line of phones.they already did reserve one of the best - IMX300 and it's exclusive only to Xperia devices ..of course newer sensor for their flagship would be always welcome but anything that is not crappy dual camera like IMX398 ...
for example they are using IMX234 16 MP on the front of XA Ultra while LG G4 ,V10 and G5 uses that same sensor for their main rear camera . and another IMX214 13.51 MP for the front of Xperia M5 , Xperia X , X performance and XZ while P9 uses that as main camera LOL
mir, 09 Oct 2016The lumia 1020 sensor size could easily top that if they reduce the native resolution down to ... moreThat's not true. Pixel pitch would be a little bit smaller than 2micron, like 1.8micron.
ing005, 08 Oct 2016The sensor size seems large, does anybody have an idea how large it is ?Don't know for sure,but most phones has sensors up to 1/2.3″ Type (6.17 x 4.56 mm).So I doubt it would be any larger than this.
remember, xiaomi mi5s has imx 398 too but ya... you cant check it on youtube for review. its a bad camera. IDK why
ssbatman21, 08 Oct 2016How about a 16 mp camera with 2µm pixel size and f/1.7 aperture.....???? That would be ... moreThe lumia 1020 sensor size could easily top that if they reduce the native resolution down to 16mp from 41mp. And then employ the dual pixel tech along with a xenon flash.
How about a 16 mp camera with 2µm pixel size and f/1.7 aperture.....????
That would be amazing
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2016phone cameras zzzReally?!!
Phone camera quality is perhaps the single biggest differentiator between flagships nowadays.
For me personally, it's the single most important factor, more important even than OS.

ing005, 08 Oct 2016The sensor size seems large, does anybody have an idea how large it is ?It is highly unlikely they would have a significantly larger sensor
If the sensor is of similar size, then with 16MP each pixel would be much smaller than a 12MP sensor, meaning most probably of lower over all quality
Kumar123456, 08 Oct 2016I'm laughing. Sony now giving their latest and greatest camera sensor to Chinese companies yet... moreBigger number of something =/= better performance... Also, it's the software that needs to be good, not only a sensor. If software sucks, even the best sensors will perform bad. You can also say this otherwise. If the software is good even older or worse sensors will shine.
I'm laughing. Sony now giving their latest and greatest camera sensor to Chinese companies yet they use years old camera sensor/optics to their Flagship phones. Pathetic. Absolutely Pathetic, Sony. Sony mobile should be ashamed of themself.
And people please don't reply to my post saying its not the sensor that's wrong with Sony but it's software. The truth is it's both. You need the latest and greatest hardware with great software algorithms. Sony is failing at both. Such a pity.
