Talk about bringing a knife to a gunfight, the Z2 has an 8.1MP against the 20.7MP of the Z3v. It was no surprise when the Z3v outperformed the Z2 in all of the tests. Sadly when I went to do our outside photo test it was a crappy Ohio day. For starters, it was cloudy and dreary but on top of that we have all of the snow. Because of that, it is kind of hard to compare the Z3v to previous phones. It did a good job of capturing how crappy it is outside though! The no light and light photos inside showed off the Z3v’s camera as well showing that it could focus well on the full object. It did get too much light glare from the LEDs though. All in all the Z3v blew the Z2 out of the water as expected, but more importantly I think the Z3v can hold its own against comparable phones on the market.
