Memory

 

Inside Sony Xperia Z1, you will find a 2.2GHz Snapdragon MSM8974 Quad Core processor which makes it very fast in processing the data. Coupled with this processor is 2GB of RAM, the combination of which make this smartphone fully complete in sense of speed or multi-tasking. A significant amount of files can be stored with its 16GB of storage capacity/flash memory and if somehow, your data overflows the provided space, you can expand it up to 64GB (external memory) by using the microSD card slot.

Other Features

 

Sony Xperia Z1 offers many built-in applications to better the experience of the customers. Some apps and features include accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, threaded view of text messages, MMS, Email, IM, Push Email, HTML5 enabled browser, stereo FM radio with RDS, A-GPS support and GLONASS, Java MIDP emulator, SNS integration, TV-out (via MHL A/V link), active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, MP4/H.263/H.264 player, MP3/eAAC+/WAV/Flac player, document viewer, photo viewer/editor, voice memo/dial, and predictive text input etc. Some other famous preloaded applications are Google Chrome, Google Play, Google Voice Search, Google search, Google Maps for Mobile with Street view and Latitude, Google Talk application, Sony Select, WALKMAN, and Web browser (WebKit). All the famous games can be downloaded from Google Play Store and numerous other applications can be downloaded for free from the Android store.

Battery

 

Working on Android 4.2 (version Jelly Bean), this smart phone comes with Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon as its processor, Quad-core 2.2GHz Krait 400 as CPU, Adreno 330 as GPU. Sony Xperia Z1 boasts of a strong non-removable Li-ion 3000mAh battery that promises to provide a talk time of up to 14 hours, a stand by time of up to 880 hours, a music listening time of up to 110 hours and a video playback time of up to 6.6 hours.

Unfortunately, some missing features are infrared and HDMI.

Other Features

Available in 3 shades of Black, White and Purple, Sony Xperia Z1 rivals many competing models. Where Sony Xperia Z1 offers 441ppi, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 offers only 370ppi (pixels per inch). LG G2 conveniently lacks microSD slot for expansion which is very much taken care of in Sony Xperia Z1. The same can be seen in HTC One which also lacks microSD slot. If compared to Apple iPhone 5S, iPhone 5S not only lacks microSD slot but also lacks in proprietary USB connector in which case, you have to use its cable instead of a standard microUSB. In terms of processing power, Xperia Z1, which offers 2.2GHz of CPU speed, trumps even the Samsung Galaxy S4, which boasts of a 1.9GHz quad-core processor.

Other Features

18 September 2013: The eagerly awaited Sony Xperia Z1 was unveiled today. The operating system is kept as Android 4.2 only and not 4.3 as suggested by some leaks before the launch. Some applications like Google Maps for Mobile with Street view and Latitude, Google Talk application, Facebook, YouTube, Xperia Socialife and TrackID music recognition are star-marked indicating their unavailability in some markets. Looking at all the specifications and figures, we can clearly say that it certainly has lived up to the expectations of both the company and the general public.

Important features of Sony Xperia Z1 are:

*        2.2GHz Snapdragon Quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM to provide the best experience of multi-tasking and high end gaming

*        Google Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean version) as its operating system

Sony Xperia Z1 review: a high-spec cameraphone without the hump

It's time to set the record straight: the original Xperia Z, launched back in February, was a decent phone. A solid phone. It was as if Sony had suddenly paused its chaotic schedule of handset releases in order to take stock of what Android users actually want: things like 1080p, microSD and a premium look and feel. And yet, the Xperia Z failed to be compelling. It wasn't just its subpar battery life that held it back. It was also the lack of a standout feature, which caused the phone to be buri Read full Review

The Z1 looks to have it all at first glance, but it's launching into a different market - one where the big Android players have their strongest handsets to date. Things have changed fairly dramatically since the original Xperia Z's i Read full Review
