Sony Xperia Z
Review| User review| Specification

The Good: Excellent 5.0-inch full HD display.

The Bad: Less than satisfactory camera, despite its high resolution.

The Bottom Line: Perfect smartphone 'phablet' for the mobile generation who wants to fit everything in one device.

Editor's Review
By Jean Ng, DigitalOne | 01-04-2013

At a slim 7.9mm and weighing just 146 grams, the Sony Xperia Z feels lighter than it looks.

Upon powering up, the first remarkable feature of the Sony Xperia Z - the 1080 x 1920 pixels full HD display - comes to life. It is very gorgeous and clear.

Its quick response when downloading and installing apps is another plus point, thanks to the Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz processor.

These qualities will no doubt woo customers who are going for phablets - large screen smartphones that bridge the gap between smartphone and tablet - especially since the Xperia Z is one of the first to go on sale here in Singapore.

The excellent 5.0-inch display with 441 pixels per inch (ppi) is ideal for viewing movies, TV shows and even reading on the go.

Previously, I had no choice but to read tiny text on a small screen. Of course one can always get a tablet, but holding a bigger device such as an iPad while standing in a moving train is cumbersome.

This is where phablets such as the Sony Xperia Z have an advantage over older smartphone models and bigger tablets. It is small enough to be a smartphone but also offers a better, wider display.

The device feels tailored for the mobile generation with features such as the Mobile Bravia Engine 2.

Pictures, movies, and videos look great with its automatic noise reduction and contrast enhancement.

If you often watch videos on the go, the Xperia Z's size and display quality will make up your mind.
