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.

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.
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

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.
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.
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!
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.

Laugh as other plebs who didn't spend inordinate amounts of money on their phone shield them from the rain, and never worry about water damage again.
Just make sure you close the flaps properly, otherwise karma will slap you in the face with a wet fish.
The charger connector keeps breaking, and so far i have had to have 3 new ones replaced, it has cost me nothing but money.
never again .
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. I am charging with about 10-15% remaining at the end of each day and I consider myself a heavy user. My Note II had a much better battery and I could easily get day and a half out of it so this may be a problem for some. I'm used to charging daily so not an issue for me but keep that charger handy!
One final slight criticism, why oh why did Sony ship their flagship phone with the out of date Android OS (4.1.2)??? Hopefully an update coming soon but its a silly decision from Sony in my opinion.
In summary this is a great looking, well-made and premium device and its great to have another major manufacturer in the game and making decent Android phones. I loved my Samsung's but to be honest got a little bored with the plastic materials they used and much prefer overall feel and quality build of the Sony.
I strongly recommend this phone and despite some minor niggles am very pleased with my purchase.
