    The Xperia Z is one of the main pillars of Sony's new plan to focus on mobile, gaming and imaging. The handset ushers in a new design language, one Sony's decided to bring to its new tablet too. It's called omnibalance design, but it's best described as a combination of 90-degree angles, even weight distribution and flat glossy sides. Once you get to look at the phone in person, all Xperias that came before it pale in comparison. The phone feels solid and you'd be hard-pressed to describe any part of it as plasticky. Between those mirrored sides, you'll find Sony's first 1080p phone display, measuring five inches and benefiting from the company's new Bravia Mobile Engine 2. Improvements to the Xperia line aren't merely cosmetic, though: Sony's added a 13-megapixel camera (featuring the HDR video-capable Exmor RS sensor) and a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro -- Qualcomm's most potent mobile processor currently available.These precious electronics are protected by a shell that's water- (IPX5/7) and dust-resistant (IP5X). Its the best of the lot.

  • Sony Z7 is better!
    Ken Wong (Jun 4, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I personally tired Sony, it is definitely better than SamSung. Especially the photographs! I believe Apple IPhone 6S and 7 is good too. Sony is extremely excellent in photographs (camera feature) and there are other new features. Check it out!

  • excellent phone Since price is much less than the launch price now.
    Ashish Sharma (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I got this phone as a gift from my brother so I din't have any previous knowledge about this device before using it although I was amazed by the phones look and built and I liked it when I saw it in ads. The phone in my hand felt perfect. the build quality is great and the first highlight is the back of phone which has a safety glass like sheet over it. the corners are sharp but do not pinch when you hold it because of the plastic used. in the phone is the best and clearest I have seen in any device yet 13 mp camera has LED flash and image stabilization, touch focus. 2. it is called the first big phone from sony so the 5 inch screen is the big achievement, it has very vivid colors and pixel density of 440 ppi is too good. full Hd displays makes watching video an amazing experience. 3. the phone is quick and snappy and never experiences a lag. 4. battery is not that impressive i have to charge it atleast twice a day but i use it vigorously. now i checked the price online and it is reduced upto 26K in some sites so this is a great buy for sony lovers but don't forget the phone is a bit older now in this era of latest gadgets so choose wisely.

  • worst phone ever sony is the biggest cheater
    RANJAN CHEF (Sep 9, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I bought new Sony Xperia Z six and half months back from now by paying Rs 31000 from my day and night hard work earned money; thinking it is one of the best phones, but I was wrong. According to the company policies I was said as such- 1 year warranty,6 months accidental coverage - wherein your whole phone will be replaced within the time period...i took Sony Xperia Z as it is a water resistant phone; which are really fake promises. Never trust them. Recently my power button has stopped working so when I went for the same to service centre,they said your warranty period is over since this is the 7th month running so we will send your phone to the company providing you with a discount of 20% or 50% on new purchase depending on your phone's conditions. I was traumatized to hear that. After realizing this many issues of the phone why the hell will I go for the same brand again. The Sony company is blindly cheating on people like us and bluffing too. They are not trustworthy. Why we spend so much of money on a phone so as to use it for lifetime. Worst experience and a very very bad decision of buying a Sony phone. Dont even do a mistake of going on its name as I did. At this point of Time there's only one thing that can be done is that just go and file a complaint against this under the 'Customer Court'.
