Sony Xperia Z

Channel5
4 October 2014
  • Summary: The Sony Xperia Z is a coming of age for Sony Mobile. For the first time, the company’s proved it can truly kick it with the big boys, with top notch specs and a top quality camera. The size will be a bit on the excessive side for some, especially without the stylus skills of the Samsung Galaxy Note, and the lack of Android 4.2 at launch will be a blow for those who like to live on the cutting edge of tech.

  • Summary: The basics With the Sony Xperia Z, Sony’s gone all out to catch up with rivals like Samsung and Apple. On paper at least, it’s pulled it off: this Android phone is a beast. It’s packing a huge thirteen megapixel sensor and a five-inch, full HD screen, and underneath beats a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, support for 4G downloads speeds and a beefy 2GB of memory. Oh, and it’s entirely waterproof. Is that an extra plus point or just a bit pointless? Let’s find out.
  • Pros: We’ve always had a soft spot for Sony’s design - that obsession with black plastic and solid straight lines that somehow has come to embody design from the Japanese gadget giant. And while last year’s flagship Xperia S was just a bit too thick to compete, there’s no such problem here: this slick slab is just 7.9mm deep. Its large size isn’t for everyone - iPhone owners especially will struggle to adjust - but if you’ve been using one of the new breed of giant smartpho...
  • Cons: Fair warning: while we like it, you might hate the design. If you prefer the sleek curves of the HTC One X’ chassis, the boxy look of the Xperia Z may be the very opposite of what you’re after. Added to that is the display - it's HD, yes, but it pales in comparison to the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 panels, which produce richer colours and offer wider viewing angle. The waterproof doors also add some unnecessary clutter: if you don’t think you’re likely to take ...

  • Excerpt: Sonys Xperia Z imponerte oss fra første stund. Vi kikket først på den for omtrent en måned siden, da den ble lansert under CES-messen i Las Vegas . Nå har vi fått kloa i et ferdig eksemplar, og det vi lurer på er naturligvis om det fantastiske førsteinntrykket holder hele veien inn.

  • Summary: Extrêmement performante, offrant un écran d’excellente qualité, des possibilités de contrôler des appareils audio/vidéo, un appareil photo brillant, une très large connectivité, une interface agréable et un design qui l’est tout autant, l’Xperia Tablet Z est, pour nous une réussite quasi-totale. Multimédia, bureautique et divertissement en tous genres ne lui font pas peur et elle exécute les différentes tâches avec promptitude et délicatesse.
  • Pros: Etanche, Qualité de l’écran, Performances, Applications multimédia, Port infrarouge, Apn et options, Micro applications en surimpression
  • Cons: Pas de Dolby Digital ni DTS sur l’application Films, Synchronisation serveur pour l’application Walkman, Mises à jour via PC ?
