Sony Xperia™ Z
For gamers and movie lovers who want a phone that can go anywhere. The Sony Xperia™ Z is a beautifully designed smartphone that's packed with power, features, and state of the art technology.
The essential tech specs.
The Sony Xperia Z’s 5” full HD screen has a 1080p resolution and is powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 for perfect clarity. Under the screen is a 2330mAh battery that gives a standby time of up to 530 hours or lets you make 14 hours of calls. The battery powers a 1.5GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to keep things running smoothly. There’s a 13MP camera on the back and a 2.2MP camera on the front, with your photos being stored either on the 16GB inbuilt memory or on a microSD card up to 64GB in size.
Feel like you're there with the razor sharp, super bright display.
With a high end smartphone, it's all about the screen. The 1080p full HD resolution of the Sony Xperia™ Z's display is the same as Blu-ray, so you can stream HD content and watch it the way it was meant to be seen. The high pixel density means visual media is always perfectly sharp, and the Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 technology automatically optimises images so they're sharper and brighter. It also controls the screen's output giving you the best in contrast and colour management for perfect realism.
13MP camera for stunning photos and videos in any light.
The 13MP fast-capture camera built-in to the Sony Xperia™ Z uses the next generation Sony Exmor RS™ for mobile sensor. All those megapixels are used by the sensor to give you crystal clear photos wherever, whenever. Designed to work in both lowlight and strongly backlit conditions, the Xperia Z's camera gives fantastic shots in all light conditions. The Sony Xperia Z also includes the world's first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones, so you can take beautiful movies even against strong light. Not a pro with settings? Superior Auto mode automatically activates HDR and noise reduction when they're needed.
Smart, sleek and durable and water resistant.
The slim 7.9 mm body, with its reflective glass surface, looks and feels slick, but the Sony Xperia™ Z is crafted to be water resistant, dust resistant and super tough. With IP55 & IP57 rating, it'll withstand being submerged in 1 metre of water for 30 minutes, and even water jets and dust won't affect its insides1. The frame is made from glass fibre polyamide, the same material that's used as a metal substitute in automobile parts, so you could say it's even as tough as a car!
Stellar battery life.
With Battery STAMINA Mode you can easily improve your standby time by four times or more2. Your Sony Xperia™ Z knows when you're screen is off and shuts down the battery-draining apps you don't need, then starts them up again instantly when the screen is back on. With Battery STAMINA mode turned on, your Wi-Fi and data traffic can also be disabled during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts and alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily customise which apps you want to receive push notifications from. Facebook notifications on or off? It's up to you.
