Sony Xperia XZ1 Camera Review: MotionEye upgraded

We review Sony’s Xperia XZ1 camera tech, to see if the updated MotionEye snapper is a serious upgrade over the XZ Premium’s camera.

The Xperia XZ1 MotionEye camera packs Sony’s brilliant Superior Auto mode for capturing gorgeous photos in most conditions, while the smart autofocus burst mode is great for action shots. Even better, the XZ1’s video mode has been boosted by the Xperia XZ Premium’s Super Slow Motion feature. That means you can capture a home movie with stunning 960 frames-per-second segments, for impressive results.

After several days of testing, here’s our in-depth Xperia XZ1 camera review complete with photo and video samples and a run-down of the best features.

Why would you double tap the power button to get into the camera when you can just press the camera button once?

장성우 says:

XZ1 vs XZ speaker test please

RMNSTD says:

Do a speaker test ffs, Sony said the speakers are 50% louder. Most powerful Xperia speakers. Test them out please!!

quebroma says:

does the XZ1 have normal (120FPS or 240FPS) Slow Motion able to record more minutes? or just the Super Slow motion?

Ryuga Law says:

Man that is awesome, every feature they have is an awesome feature, all are for good use. Nothing useless….

Борис Михаилов says:

Smile capture isn’t something new. It has been there for quite a while (had it on the Z3 Compact and now have it on the Xperia X, so I’m not sure why are you just noticing it now).

Ofek Biton says:

Can you make a speaker comparison between XZ1 and XZP?

Mohamed Medhat says:
