Excerpt: Most high-end smartphones are impressive pieces of technology, but they're also large in size, not something everyone appreciates. The big manufacturers have been aware of this for a while, and after the HTC One Mini and Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, today we'll take a closer look at the Sony Xperia ZR. In a way it's the 'Xperia Z Mini'.
Summary: To sum up the whole, if you want a decent quad-core based Android smartphone with a dust-proof and water-proof body, the Xperia ZR is a great choice. The closest rival handsets we can list out in the price and performance category are the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Nexus 4, LG Optimus G and the HTC Desire 600. However, the Xperia ZR additionally has an IP58 certification under its belt, which makes this handset a perfect smartphone for the Indian user.
Summary: We just got through looking at the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, one of the biggest phones available today. If you were looking for something a little more manageable, another entry in the Xperia Z line is available as well. If you want to get to the video review, you can jump to it via the menu on the left. This can be somewhat considered the ‘mini’ edition of the Sony Xperia Z and Z Ultra, but, in a lot of ways, this is a phone that can certainly stand on its own.
Conclusion: It should be obvious by this point that the Sony Xperia ZR is not just another shrink-to-fit exercise like most of them minis. Instead of focusing on size, Sony chose to put the specs first, take it from there and see how compact it can get. The result may not be as small and portable as the Galaxy S4 mini, but unlike that one, the Xperia ZR is a proper flagship.
Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; 3G with HSPA; LTE, 4.55" 16M-color 720p capacitive touchscreen with 323ppi pixel density; Bravia Mobile Engine 2, Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean with custom UI, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 13 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging, HDR, 1080p video recording @ 30fps with HDR mode, continuous autofocus and stereo sound, VGA front-facing camera, IP 58 certification -...
Cons: Below-par viewing angles of the display, Feeble loudspeaker, Low-res front facing camera
Conclusion: Although there are a few compromises associated with the otherwise solid performance of the Sony Xperia ZR , it manages present users with a satisfying experience that will surely be appreciated by tech-savvy people. The thicker profile, uninspiring materials, average battery life, mediocre camera and so-so outdoor visibility of the display represent a big part of the compromises that were made with the Xperia ZR.
Pros: Sizable display with very good pixel density, Powerful chipset for flawless performance
Cons: Average call quality, Average camera, Bland visuals
Summary: Sony made sure that you have enough options when getting their latest flagship. For those who prefer a glass-clad smartphone with dust and waterproof capabilities, there’s the Xperia Z. For those who want a daily-driver with a 5-inch full HD display minus the glass back and IP57 certification, there’s the Xperia ZL. The Xperia ZR falls right in the middle.
Excerpt: "Experience the best of Sony in a smart phones" is the latest buzz in the market from Sony. The new in the town is the Xperia Z Mini or the Xperia ZR with some modifications to displace the market with a new technology that allows you to take HD photos underwater. Not only photo shoot, but also this rugged phone allows you to capture HD footage five feet below water for 30 minutes.
Summary: Sony did wonders with this device called Sony Xperia ZR. It recently “massively” outsold even the Samsung Galaxy S4. The competition should have been against the front runner Xperia Z but instead the Sony Xperia ZR are doing it for them, at least in one country. The phone looks really amazing. From the time you hold it, it just feels great. The phone is quiet powerful and it has a massive Quad Core 1.5 GHz processor with 2GB of RAM.

Недостатков у нового Sony Xperia ZR практически нет, если не обращать внимания на слабые углы обзора.
