Should I buy the Sony Xperia Z?

It’s the most latest Android phone launch of 2013 by Sony Smartphone which symbolizes entry into the growing quad-core community.  Some extremely interesting features such as 5-inch 1080p “Reality” display will certainly draw your attention more, but if you compare the same phone with the latest HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3, then the size of the phone may cause you some pain. The one feature which we consider all Indians will love is its capacity to hold water and dust with considerably fast Snapdragon CPU 1.5GHz. With HDMI-out and NFC support ensures that the Xperia Z is a best buy.

Here are the top 5 features that’s turning you on.

  •  Comes with 1.5GHz quad-core processor,
  • And 16GB of built-in storage, which can be augmented using MicroSD cards.
  • This new phone has 13.1-megapixel camera,
  • 4G cellular connectivity
  • 2GB of RAM,


NFC and Internet connectivity

With Near Field Communication you can communicate with other Sony products, such as the latest range of Bravia televisions. Just by touching the phone to the TV, you can mirror the screen to show off your monstrous 13.1-megapixel snaps. It supports 4G connectivity.  Currently Airtel is the 1st and only service provider to launch 4G in India


Screen Display and Design Quality

The Sony Xperia Z looks superb and at the same time it’s very eye-catching. At just 7.9mm in thickness, it’s also extremely slim weighing just146gm. They have given some additional strips of glossy plastic on the edges which enhance its beauty more widely. Each corner for ports are covered with flaps in order to make easy for Xperia Z’s to resist dust and water ingress. With 5 inch Display size and resolution of 1920x1080-pixel in Reality Display can offer you some real colors packed with a pixel density of 443ppi which you will not find even in the latest iPhone 5. The 1080 pixel clarity is what you expect from your television. It’s not possible to discern individual pixels, and high-res images, look stunning. 


Processing Power and Software

Sony has finally connected the quad-core club with this flagship phone. Inside that skinny case beats a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, with 2GB of RAM. This makes it one of the fastest Android phones around.


Battery life:

It’s quite very obvious with Quad Core Processor and 5 inch display the battery life would not be more than 4 to 5 hours if you use it heavily.  That’s why they have introduced Stamina Mode which fully stops all mobile data activity when your screen powers down. You can change the setting to Stamina Mode which allows certain apps to keep a mobile data connection when it is engaged. They have introduced this function keeping in mind their processor and larger screen size. In the wee hours


Camera Quality

Sony’s latest phone known for its some wonderful images, providing lush shots regardless of lighting conditions. Xperia Z is no exception -- it offers an incredible 13.1 megapixels of imaging goodness. 


Conclusion: You should definitely consider this phone if you are fond of using Big screen with HD quality, speedy interface, high quality camera and some very useful features like stamina mode. We can see the similar features in the most awaited Samsung Galaxy Series S4 which can fall under the same category and will be equally very impressive, but if you are Sony’s admirer then this is the best Android devices money can buy right now.
