Sony Xperia Z1
The Xperia Z1 comes with camera technology which makes it one of the best camera phones on the market. It is capable of taking quality photos to the same standard as a digital camera.
The camera itself is a 20.7 megapixels with an Exmor RS for Mobile image sensor. If that’s not enough it also comes with a Sony G Lens with a F2.0 aperture for much brighter and higher quality photos and a 27mm focal length for wide angle shots.
The display is no slouch either. It’s a a 5” full HD display with Sony’s TRILUMINOS technology and X-Reality. TRILUMINOS brings a more natural and vibrant feel to the user experience whilst X-Reality lowers noise and inference levels and then enhances the end result to produce a high resolution photo.
The processing power comes from a Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz quad core processor with 2GB of RAM so multitasking and game playing will be a breeze.
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean comes out of the box which can now be upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat and the benefits it brings.
To make sure the Xperia Z1 takes advantage of the latest 4G networks it comes with 4G connectivity so that users can benefit from download speeds of at least five times that of 3G.
