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.

Durable Glass

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.

Cut to cut and personal review. You won't find a better review than this, here.

I read some of these people posting bogus reviews of this phone while they don't even own it. I own it but I didn't buy it from flipkart. I bought it from Vijay Sales on Day One as I couldn't wait for it. Regardless, most of the people here don't even know what this phone is capable of and yet they are comparing it to other phones that haven't even launched yet. It's silly, it's as if they have next to zero knowledge of what they are doing.
Never mind the bogus reviewers. Let's get started:

Great Phone but couple of issues !

I am a Samsung fanboy since past 3 years. BUT I am in love with this BEAUTY !! Thinking to switch over !
1) Design (simply sexy.......something completely new compared to sammys same plastic design )
2) Reliabilty of Sony
3) Durability(waterproof and dust proof)
4) Sound.
5) Size and weight.
6) Great UI.
7) Sony bravia engine 2 for viewing crisp images.....
note : Screen display is good and gives true colors unlike sammy !!

BUT some issues in my mind before buying it......

The good:
1) The Sony xperia z draws the eye with its sleek, stylish looks and It also offers a wide range of functions
2)Offering a 28mm equivalent fixed lens with a fast aperture of F2.2 Xperia Z also boasts a 13 megapixel Exmor RS image sensor.
The bad:
1.) Xperia z does not come with the latest version of android.
2)the back portion of the phone often heats up during heavy games.

verdict- With a cutting-edge camera, a super-slim design and the ability to withstand life's knocks and bum...

'Snapdragon S4' or 'Exynos 5 Octa'

My fellow smartphone users..
You would like to know that performance wise, the Xperia Z is not far from Samsung Galaxy S4.
While Samsung did announce that 'Galaxy S4' would consist of 'Exynos 5 Octa 5410' chipset, the phone DOES NOT work on 8 cores! It consists of 2 quad-core processors for efficiency purpose (Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 & Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7) . So at a given point of time, the phone uses one of the either processors. Therefore, it is illogical to say that the phone ...

If I talk about the look of the phone, this is the best phone i have ever seen. Most elegant phone. It has a mazik in its look, that will charm you.

Great product!

Before writing a review, I will recommend each and every prospective buyer to scrutinize, what they aspire for. We tend to buy a product which in opinion of other seems as good/better products, rather deciding what we need.

What I wanted and I got from this product (Value for money features/PROS)

1) Great calming music experience
2) Bravia engine screen
3) Design: the handset fits well in hand, in-spite of large 5’ screen
4) No lag whatsoever in User Interface
5) Stamina mode works well
6) ...

For quite sometime i have been asking myself, how ppl can go for such expensive mobiles of 40K and +. But when I saw the official video of this phone from Sony. Oh God! It swept me of my feat completely.

I pre-ordered the phone from Flipkart as soon it was made available last week. Flipkart is yet the deliver the phone to me. But its okay. If you...

Xperia Z -- Two Month Usage Review

Had been going through a few reviews which looked like
completely degrading the product's popularity. I have been
one of the very few users who had pre-ordered this phone and after two months of usage,
I am now a die-hard fan of Sony. Please dont go with reviews
which are fake and dont actually appreciate the beauty and performance
of the phone.

There are quite a few negatives, the battery drains with
combined usage of Wi-fi network and video streaming in HD together.
Other wise, the batt...
