Sony Xperia Z1 was released on September, 2013 and you can purchase it for a price around 440 Euros. To find out more read the enclosed Sony Xperia Z1 review!
The Sony Xperia Z1 review points out that at first glance, there is little to any difference between the Sony Xperia Z1 and its predecessor, Sony Xperia Z. It is almost the same size, the power button that sticks out is placed in the same spot, and its Sony Xperia logos are in the same spot, as well. What is different about it is the added shutter button for the camera and the aluminum band covering the edge.
We must mention in this Sony Xperia Z1 review that the phone has the same glass on front and back, looking as beautifully as it did on the Z model. Even though they are reinforced, you should keep in mind that any glass will can scratch and even break if you handle it brutally. In any case you should keep it in a case for protection and put a protective film on the screen. In addition to its reinforced glass, the Sonia Xperia Z1 is, like its predecessor, entirely waterproof. It is able to resist under water at a depth of maximum 1.5 meters for a maximum time of 30 minutes. Even if you are not a profession diver or a diver, at all, it does not mean that this is not a great and incredibly valuable feature. Total waterproofing was achieved by using rubberized flaps to cover the main ports; the internal chamber of the headphone jack is also covered, as opposed to the Z model, which had no covering. Who never dropped their phone in the bathtub or in a waterhole, poured something on it while in the kitchen (by accident, of course) or answered a call or replied to a text message in the rain? You can sigh of relief after such an accident because Z1 will have no problem in coping with all that!
Sony Xperia Z1 review highlights the fact that the phone has the latest Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm, a quad-core chip that works at the ridiculous high frequency of 2.2GHz, making it a very fast phone! The Z1 runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with the possibility to update. With a 5-inch screen, the Z1does not slide that easy into your pocket, it is a big phone! Another key area that was upgraded is the resolution of the camera that went from 13 megapixels to an amazing 20.7 megapixels; the sensor size has been also increased to 1/2.3-inch, meaning it is bigger than most sensors inside smartphones.
