Sony Xperia Z Black - Expert Reviews

Introduction

Sony continues to make new additions to its Xperia series and has turned this into a successful venture. What makes the Xperia series stand out of the herd is its design and the elegant display it possesses. The same applies with Sony Xperia Z as well that comes backed by Sony Bravia Engine 2 technology, which gives user the same feel that he or she will get on watching the television screen. The device is pretty heavy with 146 grams and is backed by the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system along with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad Core Processor and 2GB of RAM, thus ensuring that the speed at which operations can be carried out in the device would be high.

Other Features

Sony Xperia Z when compared to Nokia Lumia 920 has a different operating system with the former featuring the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as compared to the latter's Microsoft Windows Phone 8 platform. The screen size of Sony Xperia Z is larger than that of Lumia 920, where the former has 5-inch display while the latter owns a 4.5-inch screen. Since Windows Phones are not grabbing much attention in the smartphone arena, the competition seems unworthy.

However, other rivals such as HTC Butterfly, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S IV, etc., which work on the same Android Jelly Bean platform are taking the competition to another level, as each amongst the crowd has one or more unique and alluring features. Another combatant that stands against Xperia Z is BlackBerry Z10, though it has a completely different operating system, keeping in mind the fan following of BlackBerry especially in India, this smartphone is also a great threat to Xperia Z.

 

Other Features

19th September 2013: Sony has today announced a new firmware update for its first high-end Xperia smartphone, Sony Xperia Z. The firmware update is called a Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean based update, which will fix up various bugs and issues of display, camera, and battery and will also enhance the overall performance of Xperia Z. No other additional information about the update is revealed by the company yet.

Sony Xperia Z is the company's first smartphone which got the blessing of IPX5/7 (Water-resistant) & IP5X (Dust-proof) durability technology. The smartphone also got much traction for its amazing 13MP Exmor RS camera and its photography skills.
