Introducing the Precision Engineered Full HD Smartphone
The World's Sharpest 5" Smartphone Display*
Expertise from our BRAVIA® TV Engineers goes into our Mobile Screens.
World's First Image Sensor with HDR Video for Smartphones*
Stunning Photos and Videos in Any Light
Our smartphone cameras are built with the same expertise and components as leading Sony cameras, to bring you ultra-sharp photos and videos, wherever and whenever.
*Verified by Strategy Analytics as of February 4th, 2013
HDR Video Camera
Xperia Z features Exmor RS™ for mobile, the world's first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones, so you can take beautiful stills and movies even against strong light.
The 13-Megapixel fast-capture camera and the next-generation Sony Exmor RS™ for mobile sensor makes Xperia Z the Android mobile that delivers crystal clear photos wherever, whenever.
Great in All Light Conditions
With Exmor RS™ for mobile and HDR, Xperia Z takes sharp photos and videos both in lowlight and strongly backlit conditions. The lowlight sensors on front and back make it the first dual Exmor R™ for mobile camera.
Not a pro with settings? Superior Auto mode automatically activates HDR and noise reduction when they're needed.
The Highest Level of Water Resistance in a Smartphone**
Smart, Sleek & Durable
No one knows how to best pack durability into a beautiful design like Sony. The slim 1/3-inch (7.9mm) body, with its reflective glass surface, looks and feels slick, but Xperia Z is crafted to be water-resistant, dust-resistant and tough enough to handle whatever life has planned.
**As of 4th of february 2013, outside of Japan there are no smartphones with a waterproof rating higher than the Sony Xperia Z
How can we be certain? In order to get the high IP55 & IP57 rating, we submerge Xperia Z under water for 30 minutes – and make sure it's good as new when it comes out. It's also resistant to water jets!
Tough as Metal
How solid does a precision engineered smartphone need to be? How about as solid as a car? Xperia Z's frame is made from glass fibre polyamide, the same material that's used as a metal substitute in automobile parts.
The durable tempered glass on front and back is a lot stronger than conventional glass. And with anti-shatter film on the front and back, Xperia Z is anything but fragile.
Since we can't take every Android smartphone outdoors, we bring the dust tests to our labs. Before we label Xperia Z dust-resistant, we hang it in a dust-test chamber and make sure its operation is unaffected.
The design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. Xperia Z has beautiful rounded edges and smooth, reflective surfaces on all sides, which are held together by an innovative skeleton frame.
One Touch to Entertainment
Discover the quick and easy way to wirelessly share music and photos from your smartphone. One-touch mirroring with NFC technology lets you easily see content on your phone, on your TV.

*One-touch mirroring is designed to work together with an NFC-enabled BRAVIA® TV.
The Sony Smartphone that's Anything but Mundane
A screen so immersive you can get lost in it, images so real you feel like you're there, and a camera that lets you capture the moment whenever and wherever it occurs. See how Xperia Z takes you to new places.
Smartphone with Super Power
The Snapdragon™ S4 Pro quad-core processor gives you super-fast performance, unparalleled graphics and efficient battery use. Find your way on Google maps. Stream the latest YouTube clips with LTE. Or download the newest apps and run them without a hitch. Get it all when you want it – now.
Better Battery Life
With Battery STAMINA Mode you have more intelligent battery management and can easily improve your standby time by four times or more*. Your phone knows when you're screen is off and shuts down the battery-draining apps you don't need, then starts them up again when the screen is back on.
*Based on testing done with default settings, default accounts and applications for Skype™ and Twitter downloaded to the phone. The more applications installed, the bigger the effect of Battery STAMINA Mode.
