  • Sony Xperia ZR review: Ready to dare
    GSMArena team
    30 Jul 2013 | gsmarena

    Squeezing your flagship smartphone in a tinier, sportier shell is the fad in Android these days. Not the one to blindly follow the pack, Sony has chosen to do things differently. The Xperia ZR didn`t get as far down as the Galaxy S4 mini and the One mini, and got a 4.55" display rather than a 4.3" diagonal. However, unlike its HTC and Samsung rivals, the Sony Xperia ZR is keen to match the oomph of its flagship, offering better IP protection at t...

    Verdict: It should be obvious by this point that the Sony Xperia ZR is not just another shrink-to-fit exercise like most of them minis. Instead of focusing on size, Sony chose to put the specs first, take it from there and see how compact it can get. The resu...

    If you`re annoyed by the trend of huge smartphones, the Sony Xperia ZR should be right up your alley. It`s a smaller version of the flagship Xperia Z but it offers much of the same features and functions including water and dust resistance....

    Pros: Water and dust resistant,Camera works underwater,Compact design,

    Cons: A little thick,No real wow factor,No word on AU release,

    Cost of xperia zr

    Pros: It is awesome phone

    Cons: Cost shouldnt be more then 25k

    Overall: It is awesome phone everbody would like to have it. But when it comes to price no body will buy it if its more then 25k. The reason behind this is 4.55inch, storage capacity is very very less i.e. only 8gb. If sony has boom in India market the best value of zr should be 25k or less then it. If the prices for zr hits below 25k then it will override all the other brands atleast in India.
