Gadget Review: Sony Xperia Z

MAKING A SPLASH WITH Z. The Sony Xperia Z is taking over the role of the brand’s flagship phone from the Sony Xperia T. The new flagship handset sports a big 5-inch screen and it’s also water resistant – good news for clumsy gadget owners.

The handphone’s “omni-balanced” design features tempered glass on the back and front for slick, symmetrical aesthetics. 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. 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 handle 720p video.
