Design and Configuration

The eagerly awaited Sony Xperia Z1 sports an elegant frame, retaining the Xperia design. The large 5-inch display offers full HD resolution and is scratch-resistant too. Sony has brought its Bravia Engine from its TV range to this phone, to improve the viewing experience.

Performance is assured by the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon chipset, paired with 2GB RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU for gaming performance. 

Camera and Storage

The Xperia Z1's rear camera is the highlight of the device, which at 20.7MP is the highest among Android smartphones. It also offers a Sony EXMOR sensor and 1080p video recording. Up front there is a 2MP camera for video calls.

Storage is not a concern with 16GB of internal space, expandable by another 64GB using a microSD card.

Connectivity and Battery

The Sony Xperia Z1 comes with all the major connectivity options, like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS (with A-GPS) and microUSB. The Z1 draws power from a 3000mAh Li-ion battery.

Rugged smartphone

Like its predecessor, Sony Xperia Z1 is both dust and waterproof, and can survive under 1.5 feet of water for 30 minutes, enabling underwater photography. 

Verdict

With the Xperia Z1, Sony has combined its expertise in cameras and TVs, to bring Bravia technology to the display and an EXMOR RS to the camera. It's water and dust-proof abilities and 20.7MP camera make it a worthy flagship.


Now, Sony is all set to launch its successor dubbed as Sony Xperia Z2 featuring fast processor, larger display and long battery life than Z1.
