I'm afraid you interpreted the source incorrectly. Picture number 3 is not 5 vs 5T, it is 5T both times: left picture is the 16MP sensor with illumination of the test objects at 4 Lux, right picture is the 20MP sensor after reduction of the illumination to 3.5 Lux.

Still as snappy as it was on day 1. There robustness is unchallenged. This is precisely the reason why Sony has a massive fan following even in android realm.
Be Nice To Others, 14 Nov 2017Better low light can be achieved with a single camera only. Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, Pixel 2 XL,... moreone plus 5 has fantastic camera .its processing is bad. i am using goggle camera,
its much better

The photo with the color chart is incorrectly labelled here.. it's actually a comparison of OnePlus 5T photos but in 4 lux vs 3 lux lighting.
In the German site, it says:
"Now only the OnePlus 5T: At about 4 lux, the primary camera remains active (left, 16 MP, f / 1.7, ISO6400, 1 / 17s), at about 3 lux, the 5T then switches to the second camera (right, 20 MP, f / 1.7, ISO4000, 1 / 17s). But all the edges fringe in color."
Better low light can be achieved with a single camera only. Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, Pixel 2 XL, iPhone X, and maybe U 11+ all have amazing low light image performance.
The best use of secondary lens IMO is wide angle like LG's.

Really goes to show the quality of Sony phones.

Also the 2018 xperia flagship is going to be low bezelled so I think its finally time for me to retire my Z ultra.
So now it becomes a shtty overpriced Chinese phone... Thanks OnePlus...
Ain't a fan of OnePlus, but I like their approach of better low light pictures than zoom.
The latter almost has no good use in reality, and portrait mode can be done even without a secondary camera; Google proved it with their Pixel 2 phones.
Sil, 13 Nov 2017In the pic with the wooden pallet - the wood grains are much better resolved by the OP 5T cam.You need to see the one with the train and the Note 8 (along with the Huawei). That photo pretty much sums-up why this isn't a flagship camera... despite all the overhype by OnePlus.
I would like this implementation for a dual camera. I don't remember using a zoom. I can easily do a crop of a shot. The zoom lens usually has a smaller aperture, it will struggle in low light.
AnonD-352484, 13 Nov 2017so where excactly do you see the improvement? i cannot spot itIf you zoom in on the darker picture with the squares, you can see that the OP5t is sharper with less noise.
Just read this about Oppo's new phone:
"It will intelligently synthesize 2.0µm pixels to quadruple (4X) the size of the photosensitive area of the sensor, increasing the overall sensitivity to light for all images.”
I am not sure what they mean by "size of the photosensitive area of the sensor". If they mean pixel binning, then this means that the second camera sensor has a pixel pitch of 1.0 micrometer, hence 1/2.8" sensor and you will get sample images with an effective resolution of just 5 megapixels in low light.

There is a patent about a built-in lenses sensor.
This way the sensor is way thinner, even if it is bigger.
The biggest sensor currently available for mobile is imx300.
A 1/2.3" with diagonal 7.87mm. Used on Z5, now on XA1 family.
Most of flagships use 1/2.5" or 1/2.6"
