Sony Xperia Z Review

The Sony Xperia Z is a great phone in its category for the users whose main priority is a good display quality. The design is also water-resistant, so users won’t have to worry about spoiling the phone when it comes to contact with water.

 

Let’s have a look at what you will get with the Sony Xperia Z. First let’s look at the design. On the front part, we have the 5 inch full HD 1920 x 1080 screen. Its simple rectangular shape can make you think that the phone is just an ordinary smartphone until you actually take a look at what is inside the case. The front face is smooth with no physical buttons. Above the screen, you’ll find the front-facing 3 MP camera, a small notification light and a centrally placed earpiece. On the right edge, you’ll find a large power key and a slim volume rocker. The power key is not the common one found in the ordinary smartphones. It comes as a large circular shiny knob.

 

The left edge has a Micro-USB data transfer port that doubles us as the charging port and a memory expansion slot that can accommodate a microSD card. Above the power knob on the right side you’ll get the SIM card slot. The 3.5mm audio jack is found on the upper edge to ensure that you don’t have any problems when you pocket the phone while listening to music through the earpiece. All these ports are covered by tight protective covers to ensure that the phone is dust and water resistant. According to Sony, this phone can stay immersed in water up to a depth of 3 feet for 30 minutes without developing any problems. The Xperia Z’s front face measures 5.47 inches by 2.79 inches. It has a thickness of only 0.31 inches which is by far the most impressive aspect of the design.

 

The edges make the phone less comfortable to hold when compared to other models like the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. The compact design can partly be attributed to the fact that the battery is embedded and can’t be easily exchanged. One thing that many users won’t like about the Xperia Z is the glossy surface. With this surface, you will constantly need to keep wiping the screen due to the almost immediate formation of fingerprints and grease. It’s also very reflective, which can be a problem when you need to use it in front of a bright source of light. One of the things that will really impress many users in the Xperia Z is the camera. It has a 3 MP front facing camera and a 12 MP rear camera. This camera has a wide range of features and scene modes that enable it to produce images with a quality that’s far from what you’d get from a normal smartphone. The performance of the Xperia Z is impressive with a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

 

For easier, multi-tasking, this processor is reinforced by 2GB of RAM. This ensures that the user doesn’t face any problems launching applications or running a number of applications at the same time. Nonetheless, it still can’t be compared to models such as Samsung’s S4. In conclusion, this is the smartphone to buy in situations where photo quality and resistant to water and dust are the main points to consider. However, if you are looking for ultra-fast performance, then you may need to consider another model. Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean that the phone’s performance is wanting. It’s just that there are better models.

  • Pros:
    Very nice camera on a smartphone in this category; Water-resistant; Compact and thin design; Great display
  • Cons:
    Short battery life; Slow camera; Glossy surface attracts fingerprints
Our score:
4.5
4.5 / 5
