Powerful in the Pocket
Okay, so this monster may have trouble fitting in the average pocket, but it certainly is powerful. Following up from the incredibly impressive Sony Xperia Z, the 2014 Sony Xperia Z1 offers something very special indeed. Yes, it may be large, yes it may be expensive, but oh my, does this phone offer performance. With its sleek glass front and back, and new aluminium frame, the Xperia Z1 is quite lovely to look at – but, it’s what’s under the hood that really impresses. Packed with Qualcomm's 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, this phone knocked its competition out of the water, with enough power to rival even some lower-end laptops.
As for its display, this is another thing of beauty. Offering full HD resolution, the Xperia Z1 is both bright and colourful, clear and crisp. What does let it down slightly is the phone’s size. The Xperia Z1 features the same size 5-inch screen as its rival Samsung Galaxy S4, but thanks to a very wide bezel around the edge of the screen, the Xperia Z1 is far larger overall. But, it does happen to be fully waterproof, lasting up to 30 minutes underwater up to a depth of 1.5 metres. For photography lovers, the Xperia Z1 features an impressive-sounding 20 megapixel camera, but it doesn’t quite match up to other smartphone cameras currently on the market.
