The Sony Xperia Z2 has supplanted Nokia’s 808 Pureview as the best smartphone for mobile photographers, according to DxO Labs, an organization that analyzes camera quality.

Sony’s latest flagship handset scored a 79 out of a possible 100 on the DxOMark Mobile scale, beating out Nokia’s 808, which landed a score of 77, reports C/Net. Sony’s handset comes with a 20.7-megapixel camera and can record in 4K video.

Sony announced the Xperia Z2 at Mobile World Congress in February and competes with Apple’s iPhone 5S, the HTC One M8, and Samsung’s Galaxy S5. The Android-based smartphone comes with a quad-core 2.3-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5.2-inch HD display, and runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat).

According to DxO, the iPhone 5S is the third-best smartphone for picture-taking, earning a score of 76 to tie the Xperia Z2′s predecessor, the Xperia Z1. Apple’s old iPhone 4 scored a 50 out of 100 in the testing, leaving it at the bottom of the pack.
