An Xperia to reckon with, Sony presents the Z that comes with a premium design and power packed performance thanks to 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2 GB RAM.
Water and Dust Resistant
With water resistance of up to a meter and high dust resistance rating, the Xperia Z is the smartphone for those who choose not to be hindered by flimsy technology. The spill of coffee might cause you to be embarrassed but will not cost you.
Both the front and the back panels of the Xperia Z are crafted out of tempered glass that adds to the durability because of its strength. Complete with an anti-shatter film over each panel, it would take quite a bit of concentrated effort to cause even a scratch on the Xperia Z.
Tough as Metal
The framework of the phone is made of glass fibre polyamide which is known for its great mechanical strength, adding a good amount of stability and durability to the premium construction.
Battery STAMINA Mode
The Xperia Z strives not to run out of battery when you need it the most with the STAMINA mode that recognizes battery drain in the background and kills it. Also, when you put the phone on the STAMINA mode, the display is automatically put to sleep when not in use along with Wi-Fi and data traffic while saving the actionable notifications from calls, texts and alarms. You can also choose to turn on or off any kinds of notifications as well.
The phone is designed to create balance and symmetry from all the side with rounded edges and reflective surfaces which ensure that the Z not only looks good but also feels good. The framework is constructed in such a way that the device looks seamless with the display and the screen as close as possible for better sensitivity and slimmer design.
