Sony Xperia XZ

Manufacturer description: The Xperia XZ is Sony's flagship Android smartphone for 2016 and in the camera department comes with what the company calls 'triple sensor' technology. In practical terms this means that the Sony IMX300 1/2.3 23MP image sensor with on-sensor phase detection is accompanied by a laser that measures the distance to the subject and improves AF speed and accuracy in low light; and an RGBC-IR sensor that measures the color values of a scene in order to fine-tune the white balance system. The hybrid AF-system is also predictive and can track subjects in motion.

The Sony G lens comes with a 24mm equivalent focal length and an F2.0 aperture. In video mode the camera can record footage in 4K resolution and the Xperia XZ is also the first device on which Sony has implemented 5-axis electronic video stabilization. At the front there is a 13MP 1/3" sensor with F2.0 aperture and 1080p video, specifications that would have been worthy of a main camera not too long ago.
