Sony Xperia Z – Water proof


The Sony Xperia Z is Sony’s latest addition to its smart phone lineup. It sits at the top of the range, replacing last year’s disappointing Xperia T as the flagship.

The Sony Xperia Z’s 5-inch screen, whopping 1080p resolution, fast quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM are all top-notch specs. Plus its camera can record HDR video and it’s waterproof to a depth of 1m.

Sony Xperia Z: Features

Along with its big screen and slick design, the Xperia Z is also Water resistant. We’re told that this is a much more standard features in the Japanese market, but it’s still a relatively new feature in the UK – with the exception of the recent Panasonic Eluga. The Xperia Z packs the IP57 standard, which means that its water resistant up to 1m for 30 minuntes.

The phone also has Sony’s brand new Mobile Bravia Engine 2, which has been designed for crisper detail, more saturated colours, and real time contrast optimisation. What’s more, this is the first phone to include Sony’s EXMOR RS sensor, enabling HDR.

You’ll find a 13MP camera on the rear (with 1080p video), along with a 2MP front-facing cam that can deal with 720p video. Sony has also ported over the Superior Auto mode from its camera – this adjusts settings automatically to suit different light levels and movement, so in theory, the camera should perform well in low light conditions – usually the bane of the camera phone.

Other extras include Sony’s Sweep Panorama, along with various other picture effects and a burst mode, operating at 10fps and taking any number of consecutive shots, until the memory is full up.

As with most of Sony’s latest mobile product, the Xperia Z suports NFC one-touch operation and Sony will be introducing a selection of compatible products including a tiny, ball-shaped Bluetooth speaker.

The phone will also support 4G – for all UK LTE networks.
