Sony Xperia Z

Introduced at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January 8, 2013, the Sony Xperia Z is a powerful Android smartphone that competes with the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Apple iPhone 5 smoothly. The new 5-inch screen with Mobile Bravia Engine 2 and Full HD resolution (1080p) has great brightness and contrast.

The 13-megapixel camera with LED flash of the Sony Xperia Z got new Exmor RS sensor, which now brings the HDR function (famous on the iPhone 4), for video recording in Full HD. The burst mode function allows you to take 10 pictures of 9 megapixels per second.

3G HSPA+ technology provides high-speed for internet browsing on the Sony Xperia Z. The NFC allows you to synchronize headsets and other wireless accessories.

The battery can't be removed, perhaps it is because the phone is waterproof. Great for talking in the swimming pool.
