Xperia Z - Experience the best of Sony in a smartphone

  • 5" Full HD 1080p Display with BRAVIA Engine 2
  • 13 MP Camera with Exmor RS for HDR Video and imagine
  • Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-core processor with 2GB RAM
  • Water and Dust Resistant - IP55 & IP57 Rated
  • Durability with Dragontrail glass front and back

Introducing the precision engineered full HD smartphone

Feel like you're there with the razor sharp and super bright full HD screen. Xperia Z brings you the highest level of HD available - 1080 progressive scan, for incredibly crisp pictures and no jagged edges. Expertise from our BRAVIA TV engineers goes into our mobile screens, to bring you the same quality you'd expect from a top quality HDTV. The 5" full HD Reality Display also has very high pixel density - 443 pixels per inch, for razor sharp pictures, superior brightness and the widest colour spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid colour.

True Screen intelligence - Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2

Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding new real-time contrast optimisation to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality colour management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 is also able to analyse content type and adjust the image accordingly. Adding Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 to the Reality Display makes for the most intelligent smartphone screen - one that adapts automatically to display your content in the best way.

Less reflective, more responsive - OptiContrast & Direct Touch

We've eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast panel makes for less reflection and clearer viewing, even in bright sunlight, as well as creating a seamlessly black surface when the phone is turned off. By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, we've managed to increase the responsiveness of the screen. So your touch is more effective and the experience is more intuitive.

Take perfect photos whatever the lighting conditions with Sony's Exmor RS senor and HDR video
Perfect photos whatever the conditions

Stunning photos and videos in any light

Our smartphone cameras are built with the same expertise and components as leading Sony cameras, to bring you ultra-sharp photos and videos, wherever and whenever.

Great in all light conditions

Xperia Z features Exmor RS for mobile, the world's first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones. Taking super-sharp photos and videos both in lowlight and strongly backlit conditions like sunsets or with poor indoor lighting conditions. The lowlight sensors are featured on the front camera too, making it the first dual Exmor R for mobile camera

13 Megapixel Camera

The 13 megapixel fast-capture camera and the next-generation Sony Exmor RS for mobile sensor makes Xperia Z the Android mobile that delivers crystal clear photos wherever, whenever.

Superior Auto

Not a pro with settings? Superior Auto mode automatically activates HDR and noise reduction when they're needed as well as choosing the right capture mode for the photo you are about to take.

Smart, sleek & durable

Xperia Z is water resistant for as long as 30 minutes in water 1 meter deep.
Built to survive life's little accidents

No one knows how to best pack durability into a beautiful design like Sony. The slim 7.9 mm body, with its reflective glass surface, looks and feels slick, but Xperia Z is crafted to be water-resistant, dust-resistant and tough enough to handle whatever life has planned.

Durable Glass

The durable tempered glass on front and back is a lot stronger than conventional glass. And with anti-shatter film on the front and back, Xperia Z is anything but fragile. In fact, the frame is made from glass fibre polyamide, the same material that's used as a metal substitute in automobile parts.

Water-Resistant

How can we be certain? In order to get the high IP55 & IP57 rating, we submerge Xperia Z under water for 30 minutes and make sure it's good as new when it comes out. It's also resistant to high power water jets too!

Dust-Resistant

Since we can't take every Android smartphone outdoors, we bring the dust tests to our labs. Before we label Xperia Z dust-resistant, we hang it in a dust-test chamber and check the performance with many substances including sand and flour.

What makes Xperia Z a Super Phone?

Connectivity

Discover the easy and fast way to wirelessly share music, photos, videos or anything that's on your smartphone screen. One-touch mirroring with NFC technology lets you easily see all the content on your phone, on your TV. Just touch your phone to your BRAVIA remote control and watch your game, photo or movie pop up on the TV screen. No cables, no buttons, no confusion.

Super powerful

The Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor gives you super-fast performance, unparalleled graphics and efficient battery use. Find your way on Google maps. Stream the latest YouTube clips with LTE. Or download the newest apps and run them without a hitch. Get it all when you want it.

Better battery life

With Battery STAMINA Mode you have more intelligent battery management and can easily improve your standby time by four times or more. Your phone knows when you're screen is off and shuts down the battery-draining apps you don't need, then starts them up again when the screen is back on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning but with minor flaws 17 Mar 2013
Colour Name:White
I am a self proclaimed gadget geek and the Xperia Z is my latest toy! So here is an honest review of the phone:

Screen:

Yes it is stunning when viewed straight on - detailing is crystal sharp, colours are natural and reading text (Internet, SMS etc) is a delight. What you will notice is that when viewed from an angle the colours become washed out and the blacks appear grey. May be good for privacy (as the screen does blur) but in my opinion, it is a downside. You will definitely notice the HD crispness when watching movies - it is stunning.

Camera:

Probably one of the most impressive functions of the phone. I've taking pictures in various situations (sunlight, night time, macro etc) and it has produced stunning photos. It has an auto adjust function that will try and detect the best setting for a scene and it works 95% of the time. The smile and blink settings are genius - it will only snap the shot when a smile and open eyes are detected - very clever. The flash is adequate and again, this can be auto adjusted when taking a photo (red-eye reduction, normal, fill flash etc). The HDR mode produces beautiful pictures and the editing software is adequate (wish it was more like Apple's iPhoto). Video recording is HD and HDR and produces lovely home movies.

Speed:

It's basically faster than you'll ever need. Quad core processors clocked at 1.5GHZ. The phone smoothly glides through apps, downloads, internet browsing etc - the processing power is truly great.

Hardware/Build:

For around 500 to purchase outright, you want quality right? The materials used for the Xperia Z really give it the WOW appeal - Toughened glass front and back with minimal plastic panels around the sides - it feels expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony is a serious contender again! 1 Mar 2013
By Andreas Iacovou TOP 500 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Black
I have never owned a Sony phone, preferring in recent years to use a series of HTC's and more recently Samsung's (S2, Note and Note 2) so for me it was a big decision to give this a try as my main phone.

I received the phone this week with high expectations following several positive previews. Having been used to the Samsung Note, the size of the Sony was not a surprise or an issue. I have actually found it to be far more manageable using it with one hand compared to the Note. Still be warned this is a big and quite heavy device so won't be for everyone.

The main 'WOW' factor however is the stunning screen. I'm not going to get technical but visually this is the best quality screen both in terms of touch experience and clarity. Text is sharp and clear and easy to read and the colours are vibrant and brilliant. Watching movies on this is a joy and its very impressive.

The flaps over all the ports can get a little irritating especially the one on the charging port which you have to remove every time you plug in, but this is my only design gripe on what is a beautiful device.

Sony have kept the Android experience reasonably pure adding a few of their own widgets and apps but have not messed around too much. Its quick and never lags, so you can be confident it will handle anything.

I have added a 64GB MicroSD card to top up the 16GB it comes with and it works perfectly even though Sony states it will only handle 32GB cards....lovely!

Its supposed to be water resistant but I will let other reviewers comment on this as I'm not about to dunk this in my fish tank! I will just have to trust Sony on this one :-)

Now to the possible deal breaker, battery life. Its average at best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good phone, bad service 7 April 2013
Colour Name:Black
With the phone you get a usb cable with a mains adapter, a couple of user guides and a screen protector (which is actually rigid enough to apply properly).

The rear camera has a 13MP sensor (although you can only take up to 12MP photos with the auto adjust feature) which takes pretty good photos, although using manual adjustments produces the best pictures. The front camera is only 2MP and isn't the best...

First impressions are that the phone feels well made, and a decent set of hardware makes if very fast too. Wireless adapter can cope with 50Mb/s plus speeds too.

But....

The battery life is poor (enable STAMINA mode which helps), and it gets seriously hot (read the edit....)
The speaker is really, really quiet and sounds flat
Glass panel at the back scratches easily
Flaps covering headphone and usb ports are annoying

BUT overall it is a very good phone.

EDIT

The battery got so hot whilst watching a film, that the screen cracked. Couldn't turn it off as the screen wouldn't respond to touch, and over time there were cracks forming from other cracks until the whole screen was buggered. Sony put it down to 'accidental damage' and charged me 250 for repairs. Few months later, water managed to get in through a small gap between the screen and the casing, and the phone was damaged (took a week to dry out and was working afterwards), must have been a dodgy repair!
