Sony Xperia XZ specs

Weight: 161g | Dimensions: 146 x 72 x 8.1 mm | Screen size: 5.2-inch | Rear camera: 23MP | Front camera: 13MP | Aperture: f/2.0

Enhancements: VSCO app, some other editing apps used

These photos were taken by two photographers, James Relf Dyer and Matt Scutt, who were commissioned by Sony to take its Sony Xperia XZ out to Lapland and get some cracking shots with its 23MP camera, which has also performed well in DxOMark tests in the past.

The set from Dyer formed part of Sony's World of Wow campaign, designed to show off the phone's fast shutter speed and color capture, with others added from the #takenwithxperia tag on Instagram.

Phil Hall says: "Images look pretty good, but where the Pixel excelled, the Xperia XZ struggles. The dynamic range doesn't look a patch on the Pixel's – highlights are blown in some shots, while the saturation looks like it's been cranked up too much."
