I have the phone and I can tell you first hand - The selfie camera is horrible.
The one's who have it are just amazingly rocking and performing great! Life beats these lame tests by far!
It's actually useless reviewing a selfie camera.
Nobody does professionally editing their own faces, unless a psycho selfie-centric person does it all day :v
AnonD-558092, 22 Nov 2019Nobody is doing professional photography work on a smartphone. These scores are useless, espec... moreDxo scores are somewhat true because they are doing lab tests to test out the cameras full potential rather than real world tests. And dont trust dxo as i said they are just lab scores. So go get any phone thts been released this yr cause all the phones can shoot great photos. To make it even better edit it.

Although I have no Facebook, twitter accounts or the like...it's odd to me how culture can funnel many things. There are litterally cameras made on Android devices just for people of that Era to use with their app/account. I mean that's the last thing I'm concerned with in life with a blasted selfie camera...
Hawk, 23 Nov 2019Do your research. Sony makes the best sensors but for their own phones even flagships they do... moreYes and no. IMX600/608 sensors made by Sony are exclusive order by Huawei and their design team. It's a custom order just like Sony's 4K panel from Samsung. Xperia 1 main shooter IMX445 is indeed superior to IMX400 in XZ/XZ1/XZ2/XZ3 family. It simply is, there is no denying even though it's smaller in every way. And IMX586 48MP sensor is not better than IMX445
Time has shown us that Xperia 1 sensor stack is some compromise because XZ4 was canceled and XZ4 was supposed to be dual cam only and they needed three sensor flagship instead. Not sure what second camera was supposed to be but my guess is either zoom or ultrawide, I doubt they were going to duplicate insane XZ2 Premium stack for low light but who knows at this point. Who knows what's the truth behind all those Isocell sensors as well, maybe Samsung made them buy it as a part of the deal for OLED panels, we'll never know.

Sony makes the best sensors but for their own phones even flagships they don't use their latest sensors. The only time they used their most powerful sensor was during the xz2 era on the xz2 premium. Any other time they'll use an inferior sensor while giving Huawei and other competitors their top of the line sensors.
FromChinaWithLove, 22 Nov 2019As a long time Xperia phones user, I’m sad and disappointed in Sony and that Sony seems less a... moresony use camera isocell front camera from samsung, thats why its poor. sony should stop use rival company product item. remember, xz2 and xz3 has better front face camera because of exmor camera
dxomark is made so that brands with mediocre cameras pay and buy score Sony has already said that they do not pay dxomark

Considering that Sony has the best camera sensors and that it provides them to nearly any single smartphone maker, it's quite disappointing what they do with own smartphone cameras. So that's why DxO Mark seems right this time :).
Dxomark stop blackmailing Sony with bad score so I paid
The wide-angle lens quality is actually better than the same level, especially in the corners of the image.
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2019Apart from taking photos of this ugly world what is the use of camera?To show off one's wealth.
NBMSCH, 22 Nov 2019I don't know why people cares that much about those Dx0, they are Zer0 them selves. You do not... moreI have to agree with you. Image quality is very subjective to personal preferences.
Last time I've trusted DxOMark is when they still believed that an accurate and lively color reproduction is just as important as high dynamic range, great detail preservation, fine noise control, and excellent exposure metering.
People STILL care about DxOMark's BS? Damn. I'd rather trust GSMArena's reviewers than that circus of a site.
