Sony Xperia Z Review,Specification And Price

Written By de on Sunday, September 8, 2013

The Sony Xperia Z belongs to the class of superphones. It has a five-inch Full HD display and is impressively fast.

Lets begin with the design ,the Sony Xperia Z is sleek and edgy, the glass surfaces on the front and back are smooth and feel of plastic. The Xperia Z measures 139x71x7.9 mm and weighs a mere 146 grams, the five-inch screen is not much bigger than a Samsung Galaxy S3.

Full HD Display

The five -inch (12.7 centimeters) touchscreen lights over two million pixels (Full HD = 1920x1080 pixels). This corresponds to 443 ppi (pixels per inch). According to the manufacturer, the brightness of 500 candelas per square meter (cd / m²), however the test laboratory studies show "only" 373 cd / m². For comparison, the Apple iPhone 5 offers a pixel density of 326 ppi and a screen brightness of 567.7 cd / m².  In the test the display with extreme sharpness impressed. No pixels are visible to the naked eye to see. With high-definition video, it is not even flickering edges on diagonal lines. Colors, the display is very natural.

Photogenic Camera  with HDR

The 13-megapixel camera was a big surprise: better photos than xperia Z are yet to be taken , for a mobile camera  , at least not in daylight. However, the shutter lag is about twice as long as the iPhone 5 or HTC X +. When shooting against the light, the built-in HDR function ensures that subjects such as people, behind which the sun sets, are clearly visible and remain visible. Shoots up crystal clear videos in full HD, even with the front camera.

The operation of the Xperia Z is immaculate - if you have both hands free,for thumb operation with one hand, the housing is too big.  A snappy processor clocked at 1.5 GHz quad-core  (Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro), teams up with the Adreno 320 graphics chip for high speed. The benchmarks are evident: 8,138 points in Quadrant benchmark i.e, around 2,000 points more than the Samsung Galaxy S3 (Android 4.0.4) or the LG Optimus 4X HD (5,000 points, Android 4.0.4). Even the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 falls a tad short of the mark (7,000 points, Android 4.1.2). In the GL benchmark , the Xperia Z comes up with significantly more frames per second than the competition, even though it has to calculate many more pixels.

Expandable memory

The Xperia Z has two gigabytes (GB) of memory (RAM), of which 1.79 GB is for apps . The rest is for the operating system ( Android 4.1.2 ,"Jelly Bean"). The expandable memory slot comes in handy for some extra storage, supports microSD card to expand the memory to 16 GB up to 32 GB of data. With an adapter, you can also connect a USB flash drive.

Phone  battery life

Oh, this superphone can also be a good phone, in-class sound quality, even in hands-free mode. Though the UMTS reception could have been better. In the test , subjected to a typical everyday use the beast can handle upto 9 hours of performance.Probably a downer for some: Battery permanently installed.


In addition to HDMI , Micro USB, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi n, the Sony smartphone offers NFC and LTE (4G). By the way: This smartphone is water resistant to IPX5/7- (dives for 30 minutes at a maximum depth of one meter) and dust-resistant IP5X standard. The only drawback: If you want to insert the charging cable into the micro USB connector, every time open up the flap. Here a wireless charging technology such as in Nokia devices would be a definite advantage.

In the new top model Sony has omitted nothing: Everything in a smartphone is now on board. The display in full HD resolution is super sharp and the processor ensures great pace. The thin case does not add too thick layers of housing and the camera takes crisp photos. Who wants an extra-sharp, big screen and great photo quality phone, currently there is nothing better. An extra praise goes to the waterproof case - finally you can also call carefree in the pouring rain. Only in the feel and handling Sony could still do much better. Please note:The rates may vary with place and time.
