Two of the great looking handsets from Sony and HTC have been stacked up against each other in this review today.
The successful launch of the Xperia series from Sony has earned the company a place back into the smartphone race. The Sony Xperia Z2 has earned accolades from the masses. On the other hand, the One M8 smartphone can give other handsets from various companies a run for their money. Both these devices come with a unique design and great features.
Let us compare the two smartphones in terms of their camera specs.
Sony Electronics is a renowned name when it comes to manufacturing awe-inspiring camera smartphones. The camera of the Xperia Z2 comes with latest features. It has been considered the best camera in a smartphone from Sony until date. The Z2 encompasses a 20.7MP sensor, which comes at 1/2.3 inches in terms of size, providing the sensor with additional light gathering abilities. In addition, the camera comprises of a Background Defocus mode that has the capability of taking dual shots and then merges the two, to provide a short depth of field effect.
In terms of video recording, the Z2 camera has the ability of recording 4K videos at a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels or super slow motion playback at 120fps 720p. Moreover, the Z2 camera comprises of a Steady Shot Image Stabilization, which provides the user with rock solid videos, despite the videos being recorded with unsteady hands. The results offered by the Z2 camera are mostly unbelievable. It would rival the results offered by most decent compact cameras available in the market.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 offers a great competition to Xperia Z2 smartphone in terms of camera. Regardless, operating Lumia 1020’s camera can be a daunting task, especially for a beginner.
However, in comparison to Sony Xperia Z2, HTC One M8 has given its best effort to equip the M8 camera with competitive snapping and video recording skills. In fact, HTC has taken a different approach altogether, as compared to Sony. Similar to its predecessor, the HTC One, HTC One M8 comes equipped with superior ‘Ultra Pixel’ sensors in its rear camera. However, the primary camera of HTC One M8, similar to its predecessor, comes with fewer megapixels, just 4MP. It implies that the images snapped in low light would appear sharper and less noisy. Regardless, zooming into the picture to crop your photographs would ultimately make them appear blocky.
In terms of video recording, the camera comes equipped with the 1080p recording ability, but no 4K.
On the user facing camera front, One M8 comes equipped with a 5MP sensor along with 1080p video recording abilities. In comparison, Xperia Z2 comes equipped with a 2.2MP user-facing camera having 1080p recording compatibility.
