Qualcomm's quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro provides power to the 1080p display, and is combined with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of flash memory and expansion via microSD up to 32GB. Does it sound a bit familiar? Yes, it is. Since it is almost similar to HTC Droid DNA and (except microSD option and increased resolution), LG’s Optimus G and Nexus 4, creating an interesting comparison.

The results of test are quite erratic. While the Xperia Z led in the AnTuTu and Vellamo tests, it offered a surprisingly low score in SunSpider, a browser performance test, and one in which you would expect a high-end device closer to 1000ms (remember: the lower the number is the better it is in this case). Meanwhile, CF-Bench, which controls JavaScript performance and activities of the sub-system, placed the Sony phone in the middle of the LG’s Optimus G and HTC’s Droid DNA.

We found that the Xperia Z was very fast in most use cases.

However, the numbers are only the numbers, and we found that the Xperia Z was very fast in most use cases. It processed the intensive tasks requiring the better processor than one for the simple tasks. We had some problems with the phone stuttering while trying to open the task manager utility - there is a considerable delay between your tap and the utility expansion to provide access to various brightness switches and wireless. Similarly, when launching the camera application from a new started-up device, it took an average of 3 seconds – something that could be a big minus point for buyers, especially when considering the lack of a physical camera key. At least once it works, then it starts running within a more acceptable timeframe. However, the launch of the camera from the lock screen still takes about 2 seconds, which is not good.

However, what concerned us more was that the Xperia Z did not exceed 6 hours in the battery tests. Looping a video at 50 percent brightness, with Wi-Fi on (but not connected), the phone got a little more than five and a half hours in the first test. It actually lasted longer than the Nexus 4, which had also a problem with the 5 hours and 18 minutes, but was less than Droid DNA and Optimus G 720p. Strangely, the Z model’s battery was 2330mAh compared to the 2020mAh battery found in HTC’s 5- inch phone. So what is going on here? We have repeated our test twice, because it would be a shame if one of these tests had an erroneous result, tarnishing the name of Xperia Z. However, the second round added only 10 minutes. Perhaps, Sony’s screen technology is not so energy- efficient as HTC’s Super IPS LCD 3. That's our best surmise, since there is really not much to separate both of them - we even ran a video clip from the flash storage, not the microSD slot.

Update: We have just redone the battery test with the Bravia Mobile Engine 2 that was shut down - just in case it was running behind our third-party application. (We were told that Mobile Engine is associated with the video player application of the album, YouTube and the gallery viewing browser). Unfortunately, the result is the same; the Xperia Z lasted 5 hours and 10 minutes.

Our review model in the UK has a variety of radio bands to share. They are quad-band GSM/ EDGE (850/900/1800/1900) along with 3-band HSPA (850/900/2100) and LTE on bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8 and 20. Unfortunately, we could not check the phone with EE SIM, but on HSPA services of Three, EE and O2’, we found download speeds on HSPA+ about 4 Mbps, while upload speeds were about 1.5Mbps. AT & T clients, with the compatible HSPA bands, those who are most likely to benefit from the import of original equipment - we have not heard anything about prices in the U.S. and the availability of goods for Xperia Z or Xperia ZL.


It has been 5 months since Sony’s last phone, Xperia T was launched. During that review, we found that while Sony has perfected the art of media relations, the hardware did not really match the fantasy. Especially when compared to the iPhone, Lumia or HTC’s One series, it hoaxed Sony. So, it was a relief to see that the company has been made every concerted effort to create a high-end phone - and it is this phone. If you do not like the old polycarbonate shell, perhaps Sony's new beauty will suit your tastes. We have not still ensured that how much rough treatment the Xperia Z’s shiny surfaces will withstand, but after our testing period, the phone has not been scratched. We also praised Sony for bringing water resistance to the new phone. Water protection often means sacrificing design or performance, but of course that's not true with Xperia Z.

We can see many 1080p phones in 2013, and while Xperia Z might not beat the overall quality of HTC’s 5-inch screen, the phone itself has a more outstanding exterior style than its competitors. While Snapdragon S4 Plus had the best processor in 2012, we already knew what to expect from the phones later - perhaps Sony should wait for a little longer?

Perhaps the bigger question is how to adjust the $450 difference (no contract) between the Xperia Z and the Nexus 4. Both are powered by the similar high-performance S4 Pro processor, with 2GB of RAM, but Sony's options can expand the storage, 13-megapixel camera has capability of recording HDR video and 1080p screen - whether the screen of the Google phone runs better than the pure pixel numbers or not. If the Xperia Z wins the Nexus in battery life, we would be happy to recommend this omni-balance smartphone, but a disappointing showing in this aspect has made it become more difficult requirements.

The Xperia Z proved that Sony has essential things to make an attractive phone in an increasingly competitive market.
