The newest flagship Android offering from Sony is the Xperia Z. Japanese exports have done extremely well over recent years, and the 3rd largest economy in the world are hoping that this latest piece of technology will rival companies such as Apple, Samsung, and HTC, and catapult them into the premier league of phones.
So, let’s take a look and see whether this new Sony has what it takes to compete with the best.
The phone has the kind of specifications that will inspire even the most battle hardened technical critic. It comes with a 5 inch 1080P high definition display, a 13 megapixel camera, and is fully water proof. On specs alone, this phone stands out and suggest that Sony may be on the verge of something really special.
The phone is dominated by black glass, and certainly is reminiscent of the iPhone series. The screen is intense to the degree that when turned on it startles the user somewhat. It is simply breathtaking. Streaming movies and watching other media on this device is superb. There are few displays on the market that can captivate the user so well. Appearance-wise this is a great business mobile phone, with its serious, but smart looks.
The Camera, Video and Music
The camera is a wow factor. At 13 megapixels, it is as good as many standalone digital cameras on the market. It has features and picture quality that match the 13 megapixel statistic. Few cameras on mobile phones get even close to performing as well as this one does. The camera is even able to automatically pick the best camera mode for the situation and snap an optimal picture with supreme detail. It is a true point and shoot phone camera that will have your pictures looking beautiful.
The video recording is also superb, as is the music experience through the Walkman app it includes.
The phone is waterproof; a novel idea and a nice feature. The screen is simply superb, offering amazing high definition performance that is simply beautiful. The camera is about the best you will find in the industry and will almost certainly eliminate the need for a separate digital camera.
There are very few negatives, but perhaps one that should be mentioned is that it can be slightly difficult to handle due to its size. For some people this will be a drawback but for others the size could equally be a positive aspect. the perspective is purely a personal one
The phone performs superbly well on so many different aspects. The user experience looks like it will be amazing.
Sony has hit the big time. With this phone there are few that can rival it on display and camera, and the processor is immense. Time will tell whether Sony can carve out for itself a permanent position at the top end of the smartphone market. But if this offering is anything to go by, then the Japanese manufacturer is in for a big mobile future.
