Sony Xperia Z Review Fails To Impress

TWALKITOUT: With Samsung pooling the mobile market with its wide variety of galaxy devices, Sony also attempted to make a mark on consumer’s mind by launching a wide variety of handsets under  Xperia.

Sony launched its high end phone Sony Xperia Z boasting all the top features in the market that a geeky yet stylish buyer would look for. In addition to it, adding some out of the box features of being dust and water resistant may have added up, but our experience of  Sony Xperia Z review fails to impress and tells a different story.

Why Sony Xperia Z fails to impress us can be tabbed under basic criteria. Applications seem to open alright, but despite of Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, they do not seem to impress or match the smoothness of other devices from Samsung or HTC in the range. Launching the primary 13.1 MP super camera with 4128×3096 pixels and auto-focus gives a jolt of one and a half seconds to the device. Auto-focus might fascinate while capturing and image, but even a walking person or a slow moving vehicle leaves a trail in the image in certain conditions.

Another dislike is the amount of heat the device produces while on charging. The back of the device seems like a mere inspiration from Apple devices. The IP57 certified dust proof and water resistant body impresses on certain grounds to the outdoor freaks. Device comes up with Android OS, v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), and plans an upgrade to v4.2 (Jelly Bean).

Although device comes up with a great Non-removable Li-Ion 2330 mAh battery which promises a stand-by of up to 550 on 2G and up to 530 h on 3G. Talk time of up to 11 h on 2G and up to 14 h on 3G.

Over all the device packs all the features to justify the price tag it holds, but in our view Sony needs to do better in order to make the experience smooth and give the device an edge over the competitors in performance.

The following two tabs change content below.
