Sony Xperia ZR Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Sony goes on to expand the Xperia franchise with Sony Xperia ZR. This device is an extension of the company's current flagship smartphone by the name of Sony Xperia Z. For some reasons, Sony feels that the device, which is robust in water and is dust proof, would provide a huge edge over the rest of the smartphones. Although, these are distinct and useful features but the company could have spent more time in rectifying or inventing new features. Having said that, Sony Xperia ZR does offer the user with another unique trait about the ability to click pictures inside water bodies. The device has a 4.55-inch TFT capacitive touch screen that has a beefy pixel density of 323ppi. Colors produced by the screen are accurate and distinctive. The display is further protected by the IP58 certified dust and water proof technology, like the previous Xperia Z model. Sony Xperia ZR has a length of 131.3mm, a breadth of 67.3mm and a height of 10.5mm.

The device weighs 138 grams and has a massive 8GB of internal memory that should be more than sufficient for keeping a large collection of songs, games, images, and videos. In any case, there is a microSD card slot provided for memory expansion up to 32GB. The device is powered by 1.5GHz Quad Core processor along with a hefty 2GB of RAM. The device has a massive 13-megapixel camera clicking images at a resolution of 4128 by 3096 pixels. Videos are also fantastic with high definition results. A VGA secondary camera is also provided for video calling and getting some face time. The device comes with NFC capability along with USB port, Bluetooth, GPRS and EDGE as the other connectivity features. The Wi-Fi gives access to the web. Wi-Fi Hotspot, DLNA, and Wi-Fi direct are also provided for the user to make the device as an internet hub.

Sony Xperia ZR is manufactured in four colors of Black, White, Pink, and Mint. With Android Jelly Bean 4.1 (now upgradable to 4.2.2), Sony Xperia ZR just cannot go wrong in the software department and provides access to thousands of games and apps that can be downloaded on to the device. Music and the video players take the share away along with the FM radio as far as the multimedia features are concerned. Sony devices are also changing the trend with their recent devices of what was considered their Achilles heel. The power backup is phenomenal as it is backed by the standard lithium-ion battery of 2300mAH, which releases a talk time of up to 11 hours in 2G and up to 13 hours in 3G. The standby time produced is up to 470 hours in 2G along with up to 520 hours in 3G. Continuous music can be also be heard up to 45 hours.
