Coming to the review of Sony Xperia Z1:
It is a sturdy phone with great built quality. They have used a metal frame. This increases the grip and looks stylish. This is a fully waterproof phone.
With the use of Snapdragon 800 Quad core processor, Z1 has become all the more efficient and playing 3D games is nothing much of a problem.
It has a screen size of 5 inch with 1920 x 1080 resolution. The narrow viewing angles have also been eliminated. Z1 display more accurate colors than its competitors.
This phone was much talked about because of its 20.7 MP rear camera. But the camera didn’t deliver images of that great quality. The images produced under low light were hazy and noisy. Even during full day light, the edges were noisy and blurry. The camera failed to cater to the expectations of the users.
1- Pleasing and sleek design
2- Camera for underwater shooting
3- Enhanced battery life
1- Camera could be better.
2- Disappointing viewing angles.
