Sony Xperia Z1
Best of Sony for the Best of You
The same quality and performance as our compact digital cameras. The same screen technology as our high–end BRAVIA® TVs. A masterpiece crafted into the most elegant package ever. And that's just scratching the surface. Because with Xperia Z1, we've created a smartphone that truly encompasses the very best of everything. The world's most compact ultra high–resolution camera in a smartphone*, it combines a large 1/2.3” 20.7 MP Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor, Sony's award–winning G Lens and intelligent BIONZ™ for mobile processing engine. The result? The same quality and performance as in a real compact digital camera, allowing you to take pictures like never before with a smartphone — in any light, weather, fast–moving and zoom-friendly environments. And there's more. Use Xperia Z1 to enjoy a range of smart applications and social sharing, for a camera that goes far beyond image–making as you know it. The unique design is slim, sleek yet waterproof** and dust resistant, for a stunner of a smartphone that can go anywhere. The icing on the cake? A superior 5” Full HD TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile with X–Reality™ for mobile, creating rich colours and razor sharp image quality, always. So say hi to a smartphone like never before. To an experience like never before. To the best of Sony, for the best of you.
** In compliance with IP55 and IP58, Xperia Z1 is protected against the ingress of dust and is waterproof. Provided that all the covers for the micro USB port, the micro SIM slot and the memory card slot are firmly closed, the phone is (i) protected against low pressure jets of water from all practicable directions in compliance with IP 55; and/or (ii) can be kept under 1.50 metre of freshwater for up to 30 minutes in compliance with IP 58.
The world's best camera in a waterproof smartphone*
Sharper. Clearer. Brighter. Thats what Sony's industry leading compact digital cameras give you. And now with Xperia Z1, we have created a groundbreaking smartphone built with the very same components, giving you the most stellar picture and video quality possible. By combining the large 1/2.3”; 20.7 MP Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor, Sony's award-winning G Lens, and intelligent BIONZ™ for mobile image processing engine, the results are nothing less than amazing. The light-sensitive 27 mm wide angle lens with bright F2.0, allowing the lens to capture more light in dark conditions. The large high sensitivity sensor is made exclusively for Xperia Z1 and is equivalent to the sensor size used in Sony's Cyber-shot™ digital still cameras, which together with the intelligent noise reduction capabilities of the image processing engine and the sensitive ISO 6400 enables incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail. The high pixel resolution, aspherical lens and BIONZ™ for mobile super resolution technology enables zoom without quality loss — just like an optical zoom, while the high shutter speed prevents any risk of blurry footage. Images are delivered with super sharpness, clarity and brightness — always.
*The Z1 features a bespoke camera combining the world's largest image sensor (1/2.3 inches) with the highest resolution (20.7MP) in a waterproof smartphone. It also includes the brightest lens (F2.0) available in a slim (8.5mm) waterproof (IP55/IP58) smartphone. Specifications verified by Strategy Analytics' SpecTRAX service as of 5th of August 2013.

Built with the latest Sony BRAVIA® technologies optimized for mobile, Xperia Z1 incorporates a large high-resolution 5” Full HD TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile, for a wider palette of rich, natural colours — just like having a broader range of colour pencils to draw from. With Sony's exclusive X–Reality™ for mobile picture engine, everything you watch — from HD movies to web videos and photos — is analysed and selectively processed to deliver clean, clear, and lifelike pictures. In addition, the Intelligent Super Resolution technology finds and reproduces lacking pixels, so you'll always be able to enjoy the sharpest videos, preventing your entertainment from being spoiled by low resolution videos.

Paired with a pixel density of 441 pixels per inch, you get pictures that are razor sharp and incredibly bright.
Smart, sleek and waterproof*
Building upon the rich history of Sony's craftsmanship, Xperia Z1 has been carefully crafted using only clean lines and premium materials. With OmniBalance design, this smartphone offers balance and symmetry in all directions, creating a smartphone that feels wonderful to hold in every angle. Both the front and back are made of durable tempered glass, reflecting the world around you while allowing you to get so immersed in content that the hardware virtually disappears. The innovative solid one-piece aluminium frame is designed without breaks, creating a completely seamless expression. Paired with the Magnetic Charging Dock DK31, charging is made smooth and comfortable, with no need to open a USB cap. And due to its IP55/IP58 rating, this slim and sleek smartphone is both waterproof and dust resistant. In fact, even the headphone jack is waterproof. For a smartphone that is just as breathtaking as it is tough.

This device feels super premium: the metal sides feel fantastic in the hand and the glass front and back add to make this phone feel even more premium than an iPhone in my opinion. The metal also makes this device super tough too. I am sure if you dropped it from a small height it would be fine.
Call quality was excellent: callers could here me loud and clear and the quality on my end was excellent too. No issues with reception: very good on the Tesco Mobile (uses O2) network, but I am sure it would work well on every network.
I wasn't able to test the water-resistant ability (I'm too scared!) but I am sure it would be just fine if you dunked it in the loo, a swimming pool, etc. The flaps used to provide this ability by covering the ports feel really durable so they won't come off when you're in the water.
The camera's very good: 1080p video looks really crisp and the photos it takes are really good quality, with good definition and very little noise. Low light performance wasn't bad, but a fair bit of noise creeped in. However, this is normal for most phones.
Overall, a really excellent phone, that I would certainly recommend. Excellent!
The camera is of course the stand out feature and is very good, not ground breaking in a nokia 808 or 1020 sense but the best available on android (which in return is light years ahead of the windows operating system). The default setting is superior auto which doesn't use the full 20mp but rather 8mp that apparently utilizes the 20mp's (again like nokia 1020) to make a better shot in all conditions. I would say for the most part superior auto will do the job.
The walkman app is one of the best on a smartphone and the though there is too much bloatware (most manfacturers are guilty of this) you can disable them if you wish. Spec wise the Z1 is just about the fastest out there at the moment, falling a tad short of the note 3 but it does have better camera and the build quality is second to none. Some may argue the HTC one or iphone 5 are the best built phones but it's down to opinion, the Z1 is on a par but glass instead if aluminum. The Z1 is of course waterproof which is a nice touch, I'm still too scared to put mine under water but it's nice to know your safe when talking in pouring rain.Read more ›
