At a big event on the 4th of September Sony announced the highly anticipated successor to the successful Xperia Z, Z1 model. The new device is Sony’s latest and greatest flagship smartphone that is well poised for the smartphone battle with some impressive features. The design of the whole phone follows the characteristics of previous Xperia smartphones, and Z1 is an improvement on those. The new flagship is a great looking device and packs everything that is best from Sony.
The new Xperia is powered by some seriously powerful and performance enhancing internal specifications. The processor in the Z1 is a Snapdragon 800 from Qualcomm clocked at 2.2 GHz, more than enough to provide the new smartphone with all the processing power. Another impressive internal specification is the 2GB of RAM that Sony has placed in the new product, to power all the multitasking users will throw at the device, by enabling simultaneously running several applications without a decrease in performance. Z1 is also equipped with all the regular sensors and connectivity features on modern smartphones like NFC capabilities, accelerometer, gyroscope and such.
Z1 has both front and back panels made entirely out of reinforced glass, wrapped around in aluminum strap in the middle, which basically make the phone waterproof and also dust proof. Sony takes real pride in the fact that the Sony Xperia Z1 has such a defining feature, and withstand dropping and submerging in water.
Sony has always had great screens in their Xperia series smartphones, and Z1 is no exception. The new flagship has a 5 inch display that takes up the entire front of the phone, with a pixel density of impressive 441 ppi and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 px. That gives the user true FULL HD capabilities. The LCD technology from Sony has really made the display of the new device really breathtaking. Sony has used their knowledge in making television sets into their smartphone display development, and that effort really shows in the Xperia Z1.
The camera of the new smartphone is the biggest upgrade from previous versions of the Xperia line. Sony is calling the camera in Z1 the G lens, and the camera has some impressive features and specifications. It has a whopping 20.7 megapixels which is right at the top of smartphone cameras. Sony has also borrowed some specs from its camera department and equipped the Xperia Z1 with an Exmor RS sensor and BIONZ image processor, features that will make the new device a seriously good photo maker.
Sony’s new smartphone will run on the Android JellyBean 4.2.2 software with the customized skin to provide the users with all the software features unique to the Sony experience. The Timeshift feature for example, takes 30 frames before you press the shutter button and 30 second after, so the user can create cute, funny animations out of their photos. Another cool software feature built right into the operating system of the Xperia Z1 is the ability to livestream video directly to Facebook, a feature that will surely produce some interesting situations and clips.
Sony Xperia line is one of the most favorable one among all smartphone series on the market. Derived its name from the word “experience”, every Sony Xperia is a great example of high resolution display, great features and powerful processor i.e. gives an almost unlimited opportunities in creating, gaming, watching and listening. Each of the devices combines the best of Sony achievements in technology and design: that’s why these smartphones are so attractive. As a makeover of Xperia Z device, the Z1 model has its continuation embodied in Z1 Compact and Z2 models. While the first one is like a more portable version of Z1 smartphone it’s, surprisingly, as powerful as its predecessor. The second device, Z2 model, does not change a lot the image of the line but instead shows the respect to customer’s suggestions and complains. Xperia Z2 is simply an ideal smartphone with slightly bigger screen (5.2 inch) as well as upgraded and improved characteristics related to better front camera, bigger storage expansion via miscroSD (now up to 128GB) and battery of 3200 mAh. As a result, regardless the choice, every Xperia Z is a worth deal.
