CES 2013 – Sony Xperia Z

“Sony’s flagship phone of 2013″

A 5 inch screen, quad core processor and a 13 megapixel camera. What more could a person ask for? That’s right, the Sony Xperia Z has all of this and more. As most would know, the camera on Sony phones have been phenomenal and with the Xperia Z being the flagship phone for 2013, a 13 megapixel camera is no surprise. Even the front facing camera is superior to others, with a 2.2 megapixel camera and HD video recording.

The quad core 1.5Ghz Krait processor is not anything special considering that quad-core processors have been around for a while. This time, Sony decided to include a microSD slot which was absent in the NXT series. The 5 inch screen features a Full HD 1080p screen with 441 ppi screen density which is much sharper than Apple’s retina display.

What differentiates this flagship phone from the rest is the fact that it is water and dust proof. Surround with glass from all four sides, its slim profile fits perfectly in your hands. While Samsung phones have rounded edges, Sony has opted for sharper edges, giving it a more refined look. This has been apparent since the Sony NXT series.

With Sony first to release its flagship phone of 2013, we wonder what is installed for us from the other companies.

    I think the Xperia Z was pretty much a flop. Yes, I have an Xperia Z,and it’s my daily phone. Perhaps it’ll interest you that I also do have a HTC One. However, I choose to use the Xperia Z. Let me tell you why.
    The Xperia Z scored well in many areas: Overall Design, Camera, Build, Specs. And softkeys. Yes, softkeys, major score in my opnion. But it didn’t do so well in other areas. Sony’s UI isn’t great, but it does the job. It’s just… meh. Could have been better, and the Xperia Z could have shipped with 4.2, but it didn’t. That’s one thing.
    The main thing is the display. Urgh, the display! It looks great head on… but the viewing angles are horrible. Colours look washed out almost immediately as you tilt the display. Sometimes, you can’t even read the text if the phone’s lying at an angle to you (eg, on the table). The other thing is the Wifi module. The range sucks. Like seriously. Battery is.. meh.
    The only thing that kept me from jumping to the HTC One is the softkeys and the camera. But okay, good job Sony, nice try. Keep working on it.
