Nokia gave the world a blast when it revealed the Nokia Lumia 1020 packing a boasting 41 MP Pureview Camera Shooter but that doesn’t stop the fight among camera smartphones. Sony brought their knight when they unveiled the Z1 which has a pretty decent 20.7 MP Exmor RS shooter which should compete side by side with the Lumia 1020.
The camera performance is the Xperia Z1’s main selling point as it offers the basic functionalities and even more extra goodies in it. The Exmor RS Sensor, which are consistently used by Sony, is their answer to Nokia’s Pureview Technology. It performs great even in low lighting condition which is commonly the downside of most flagship devices. It features a very good f/2.0 aperture, “3x clear zoom” and Sony’s G Lens, a new armor for Sony devices. Also, a dedicated camera key will help the photo capturing with ultra fast camera launch at its press, another edge to those competitors’ flagship.
