Sony Xperia Z has a massive 5-inch screen with Reality Display which makes it larger than the likes of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3. The display sports a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution along with a pixel density of 443, compared to the iPhone 5’s 326. It is a lot lighter than it looks as it weighs only 146 grams.

It operates on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor – the 1.5GHz asynchronous quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB RAM. This phone will be available with 16GB Storage memory and also have microSD Card Slot to provide you the option to extend the memory till 32GB

Coming toward the feature of Xperia Z, it packs the IP57 standard, which means that it is water resistant up to 1m for 30 minutes.

This phone got a 2370MAh battery. Moreover with this massive memory support Sony has also thought avout including a feature called Battery Stamina Mode. This is designed to conserve as much battery life as possible. Its seems the idea behind this is that when the screen is off, the phone automatically turns off everything else, except for telephony. The mode is optional and you can also tweak the settings so that you can choose apps to leave on – for example, so that you can get email and social network notifications.
