This year's CES springs out certain excellent 5-inch-plus phones, and among them Sony Xperia Z is no doubt the brightest star. This new Sony flagship contains heaps of high-end features including quad-core processing, a massive 5-inch screen and a 13-megapixel camera. More surprisingly, Sony claimed that this phone could be used in the bath or shower without fear and can even survive being dropped down the toilet. Quite Amazing! Personally, Sony finally crafted a flagship that could go toe-to-toe with the competition.
So now let us focus on Sony's new flagship and take a close look.
Sony Xperia Z boasts a 5-inch 1080 x 1920p full HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 to deliver amazing visual effect. The Xperia Z’s display manages 443ppi and adds even greater realism. It lacks the eye-poppingly bright color palette of the iPhone but it’s a stunning display.
This mobile comes with a 1.5 GHz asynchronous quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB RAM. The quad-core processor means the speedy processing speed. If you want to do multi-task with your mobile and are unwilling to slow your activities down, a quad-core processor is in great need. So to speak, Sony Xperia Z is a speedy, powerful, responsive phone.
The highlight on this handset is the phone equipped a 13MP rear camera and 2MP front facing camera . Far as I know, Sony Xperia Z is the first phone to feature an amazing 13MP camera and indeed, it will help to capture sharp pictures and videos.
Battery STAMINA mode improves standby time by at least 4 times.
Excellent waterproof ability to meets military specifications IP55 and IP57, which means it’s dust resistant and submersible in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.
