Sony Xperia Z Review

Digitaltrends
10 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Xperia Z is a great phone and one of the best options on T-Mobile. Though T-Mobile users have a lot of other choices – the Nexus 4, Galaxy S4, HTC One, BlackBerry Z10, Galaxy Note 2, and iPhone 5 – the Xperia Z is the only device that is dust and water proof. If water damage is something you fear, you may want to choose the Z. Luckily, you don’t have to trade performance for water resistance. The Xperia Z is a beauty, but it’s also one tough phone.
  • Pros: Beautiful glass design, Waterproof and dustproof, Powerful processor, Great button placement
  • Cons: Glass case prone to fingerprints, Battery life weak

Sony Xperia Z looks sharp, but battery life goes flat

CNET
10 July 2013
  • Summary: The Sony Xperia Z makes sense if a water-resistant design and excellent photos are a priority, but skip it if you demand blazingly fast performance and long battery life.
  • Pros: The Sony Xperia Z boasts a thin, attractive design that’s also dust- and water-resistant. It’s equipped with a big, bright screen and 4G LTE, takes great pictures, and has sharp call quality.
  • Cons: The Sony Xperia Z’s battery life is short, its camera is slow, and its processor is not as peppy as those found in other flagship phones. Its glossy chassis attracts fingerprints easily.

Sony Xperia Z (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
10 July 2013
  • Summary: T-Mobile is making it increasingly difficult for consumers to choose a phone -- in a good way. In addition to the Xperia Z, the carrier also offers the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One for the same price. (The iPhone 5 costs $149.) With its 1080p display, water-resistance and great camera, the Xperia Z should definitely be in the conversation when it comes to premium smartphones on T-Mobile's LTE network.
  • Pros: Design shrugs off water, Excellent 13-MP camera, Floating apps come in handy, Vivid screen
  • Cons: Boxy design makes one-hand use difficult, Narrow viewing angles, Back gets hot, Slower CPU than HTC One and S4

Sony Xperia Z review

APC
7 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony hasn’t had a truly stunning smartphone for a while but the Xperia Z should qualify - at least on paper. It sports a 5-inch 1080p (441ppi) display on top of a 1.5GHz Snapdragon quad-core S4 processor and 2GB of RAM alongside an impressive 13MP camera that’s also HD video-capable. It’s 4G LTE 1800MHz and NFC capable as well. It has a solid understated design that’s only slightly marred by an odd power button on the right-hand side.

Sony Xperia Z

MobileTechReview.com
9 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Sony's top smartphones get better with every generation, and the Xperia Z is a worthy contender to fight the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. Fans of the Xperia line and Sony's software will no doubt love the phone, with the possible exception of battery life, but those who aren't loyal to the brand may find the durable metal casing and better display on the HTC One and the myriad features and replaceable battery on the Samsung Galaxy S4 more captivating.
  • Pros: Attractive design, full HD 5" display, pleasing UI and software customizations.
  • Cons: All glass phones make us nervous, no 4G LTE in US for unlocked model.

Battle of the waterproof phones: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active vs. Sony Xperia Z

theverge.com
2 May 2013
  • Summary: A waterproof smartphone is a nice idea, but they’ve always been kind of terrible. Casio has been making its line of Gz’One rugged smartphones for years, but they’ve always been a disappointment in one way or another, with slow processors, disappointing screens, and outdated software.
  • Pros: Waterproof and rugged, Excellent camera, Great performance, Gorgeous display
  • Cons: Rugged design still feels unpleasant and cheap to hold, Performance can suffer in odd places

Sony Xperia Z review

theverge.com
25 April 2013
  • Summary: Only a year after releasing the Xperia S , its first post-Ericsson phone, Sony has already reached the end of the alphabet with its flagship for 2013, the Xperia Z. The implication behind the name is that this handset is as ultimate as the letter Z itself, and Sony’s design and marketing teams have worked hard to amplify that idea.
  • Pros: Stamina mode is a boon for battery life, Rugged, yet handsome, construction, Water- and dust-resistant, Headset is excellent for bass-heavy music
  • Cons: Limited viewing angles, Mediocre ergonomics, Sub-par camera performance, PlayStation Mobile remains woefully underdeveloped
