Sony Xperia Z


Smartphone users were counting their fingers until they get their hands on a water resistant hard usable smartphone. Sony has given them some hope with the newly released Sony Xperia Z. Sony unveiled the new Xperia Z during the 2013 Consumer Electronic Show and it gained a quick popularity in every corner of the world because of the interesting specifications. This smartphone has everything that a high-end smartphone on today’s market should offer on paper, including a quad-core processor, Android Jelly Bean, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and, of course, a large 5-inch display with a full HD resolution.


Xperia Z is an awesome looking smartphone that comes with a 5 inch 1080p screen. However, some people say that there is a lot of unnecessary bezel around it. Even though it has a great screen, the look of it is preserved due to the water proof protector. The quad core 1.5GHz QUALCOMM Snapdragon processor paired with 2GB of RAM has impressed the users. The smartphone has an inbuilt 16 GB memory and it can be expanded using a micro SD card. All the ports of this smartphone are protected by hatches because of the waterproofing technology.


Sony Xperia Z is powered by Google Android Jelly Bean. There are little secrets that make the experience more user friendly. If you hold the multitask button, for example, a menu of widgets pops up for easily accessing notes, your calendar, a voice recorder and a timer. Those are there by default, and you can add additional “small apps” from the Play Store. Sony’s Video Unlimited and Music Unlimited software suites come installed, too, and both provide full access to Sony’s music and video libraries. You can download the high end HD games from the Android Market and play them on this phone, thanks to the specifications.


The 13-megapixel camera on the Xperia Z took rather nice photos. The quality of photos is almost similar to the photos taken from a digital camera. You can use this camera to capture your life moments, record videos on full HD 1080p quality and share them on social media networks. The Xperia Z has a 2,330mAh battery that easily provided us with enough juice to get through a full day checking social networks, email and listening to a few tunes here and there while surfing the web. Battery life should not be a concern under moderate usage, but as with most of today’s smartphone powerhouses, you’ll want to keep a charger nearby if you’re planning to use the phone frequently because screens are notorious for sucking battery life and you’re dealing with a 5-incher here.

Sony absolutely deserved its award for launching the best smartphone at CES 2013. But now it’s a few months after that. It has revolutionized the smartphone concept and people who are looking to purchase durable and hard use smartphone tend to purchase Xperia Z without any hesitation.
