DxOMark: Sony Xperia 1 II's camera comparable to a two-year-old flagship

Ro, 28 January 2021

Almost a year after the release of Sony Xperia 1 II, DxOMark did a comprehensive camera review and the results aren't all that impressive. The overall score is just 112 points, which ranks the handset right after the two-year-old Samsung Galaxy S10+ and the OnePlus 7 Pro. But it does share its position with the vanilla Galaxy Note20 from last year.

What the reviewers didn't like is the rather narrow dynamic range in moderate to low-light conditions, hue shift artifacts in all photos, unreliable autofocus, low detail in the telephoto stills and problems with AF and dynamic range in videos.

However, the low noise in challenging lighting conditions and the wide dynamic range during the day boost the phone's score a little. Surprisingly, the ultrawide shots have plenty of detail too.
