Sony marketed it as smart, sleek, and durable but for me, it is an understatement. This 5-inch smartphone is jam-packed with features and is engineered to its finest to cater the most lustful tech users. With the 1080 x 1920 display of 16 million colors and the super clear 441 ppi pixel density, you can say that you have more than enough for your HD and 3D game addiction. This jewel is also bundled with 13.1 megapixel rear camera with autofocus, touch focus, image and video stabilizer, HDR, geo-tagging, and sweep panorama making it one of the most advanced mobile camera in the market.You can record a fullHD (1080p) video at 30 frames per second. The secondary camera is also competitive enough at 2.2 megapixel that is also capable of shooting fullHD movies. Both the rear and front cameras are excellent in shooting images and videos in low light conditions which is made possible by the dual Exmor RS™ image sensor technology.
Sony’s signature signature WALKMAN application with xLoud™ and 3D surround sound will give you an entertainment boost.
Sony Xperia Z is dust proof and water resistant to up to 1 meter in 30 minutes. It is designed with a shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass. The 2330 mAh Li-Ion battery will not let you down with talk time that can reach up to 14 hours over 3G and stand-by time of 530 to 550 hours.
Connectivity is more vibrant with Xperia Z which allows up to 42 Mbps with HSDPA and up to 100 Mbps with LTE. The device’s operating system is Android v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) and is upgradable to v4.2 (Jelly Bean).
The 2GB is good enough but the 16GB flash memory is crammed for HD movies and 3D games savvy. But this is not a big issue since you are given an option to expand the storage by 32GB using microSD.
