DxO has tested and found that the Blackberry Priv camera quality has a similar score with iPhone 6, 6s, and 6 Plus. It’s also in line with Sony Xperia Z3 Plus, ahead of the Google Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy S5, and many others. This makes it the best Blackberry camera ever made.
“Ranking inside the current top ten smartphones in our database of mobile phone image quality, the BlackBerry’s PRIV now ranks alongside the best smartphone devices we’ve tested from Apple, Sony, and Samsung,”
The Blackberry Priv camera is made of the Schneider-Kreuznach lens, which is built around a large 1/2.4-inch imaging sensor that offers 18 megapixel resolution. The image still that is produced can reach up to 1440 x 2560 pixel of resolution or video 2160p@30fps/1080p@60fps. DxO praised its “very good exposure with a large dynamic ,” “accurate and fast autofocus,” “well-preserved” details “especially in bright light conditions,” “pleasant” colors, and “good” overall flash performance.
Priv gets 82 score as well as iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus, and Sony Xperia Z3 Plus. They noticed that the disadvantages of Priv camera are:
- Inconsistent white balance with yellow, pink, or blue cast in bright light
- Strong ringing visible
- Noise level is high in bright light conditions compared to other smartphones
- Flash: Colors are slightly oversaturated with no additional light source
This score allows the Priv to compete with the other high-end smartphones for the first time. Moreover, it is the great news for Blackberry. Congratulations!
