Sony Xperia-Z Review

Sony launched the Xperia Z, its new flagship smartphone in the Indian market in the first week of March. The USP of the phone is its 5-inch 1080p HD display, in addition to its water and dust resistant build, and a 13.1-megapixel camera. It's the second phone after the HTC Butterfly, to feature a full-HD display. However, it's priced about Rs.7,000 cheaper than the Butterfly at Rs. 38,990. Sony is also trying its best foot forward in promoting the phone in the Indian market with a star-studded marketing campaign.

HTC Butterfly
HTC Butterfly features a 5-inch Super LCD III touch-screen with 441ppi pixel density and 1920x1080p resolution. The display is crisp and vivid, has good viewing angles and makes it a pleasure to watch videos and view just any content. What we do not like about its screen is that the colours wash out when seen under direct sunlight, even at full brightness. 

Sony Xperia ZA 5-inch TFT display is used in Sony Xperia Z; the keys are based on the display itself. The phone supports 1920x1080p resolution and 441ppi pixel density, same as the HTC Butterfly. The screen of this phone is as gorgeous as that of Butterfly but does not have the same contrast level. The two phones also share the poor sunlight legibility as well. 

BlackBerry Z10
Z10 comes with a 4.2-inch with 355ppi pixel density and 1280x768ppi pixel density. Despite the lower pixel density, the screen does not pale much in front of the other three. Moreover, it wins when it comes to sunlight legibility. However, it does lose out to them when it comes to full HD support and the video playback is not as beautiful either.
Nokia Lumia 920
Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch IPS panel with PureMotion HD+ and ClearBlack display technologies. The pixel density of this screen is 332ppi and resolution is 1280x768p. Where the screen of Lumia 920 scores above all others is sunlight legibility as it remains clear and vivid and does not lose contrast at all when viewed during bright sunlight. But again, the lack of full HD support will pinch those who wish to view high resolution movies.

Though the screens of Nokia Lumia 920 and BlackBerry Z10 are very good, the full HD video playback was not as good as what we got with the two Android phones. The video was scaled down to suit the phone's native resolution and video quality was not life-like. If Lumia 920's touchscreen sensitivity is set as High in settings menu, you can operate the phone even while wearing gloves, a feature that will come in handy in colder climes.

A screen as impressive as HDTV – Full HD Reality Display

Feel like you’re there with the razor sharp and super bright full HD screen. Xperia Z brings you the highest level of HD available – 1080 progressive scan, for incredibly crisp pictures and no jagged edges. Expertise from our BRAVIA® TV engineers goes into our mobile screens, to bring you the same quality you’d expect from a top quality HDTV. The 5” full HD Reality Display also has very high pixel density – 443 pixels per inch, for razor sharp pictures – and superior brightness. And with the wide colour gamut it gives you the widest colour spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid colour.
2. Camera

Exmor RS™ for mobile – the world’s first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones

HDR for photos and videos captures natural colours in any light. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology used to capture clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, the camera captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo.
Xperia Z introduces HDR to video, so that you can film even in high contrast situations, like in front of a window or with the sun behind your subject.
3. Design & Durability

Minimal yet distinctive – OmniBalance design

With Xperia Z, we introduce our new OmniBalance design. The design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. Xperia Z has subtly rounded edges and smooth, reflective surfaces on all sides, which are held together by an innovative skeleton frame.
Both the front and back are made of glass, with a seamless surface. Together with enhanced reflection coating on the top, bottom and sides, Xperia Z actually mirrors the world around you. OmniBalance design balances technology vs. design, letting you get so totally immersed in the content that the hardware disappears. 
4. Connectivity

One-touch connectivity from Sony

Sharing with friends and connecting your world has never been easier. Based on NFC (near field communication), our One-touch functions connect one device to another in a single tap. No wires, cables, or fiddling with settings necessary.
