Feel like you’re there with a razor sharp & super bright display

No matter the light condition, the Xperia Z smartphone from Sony takes stunning photos and videos.

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.

How does Xperia Z make your pictures sharper?

HDR video camera

Xperia Z has the world’s first Exmor RS™ mobile with HDR for video, so you can take beautiful stills and movies even against strong light.

13-megapixel camera

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.

Superior Auto

Not a pro with settings? Superior Auto mode automatically activates HDR and noise reduction when they’re needed.

Water-resistant and dust-resistant, the Xperia Z smartphone from Sony is tough and sleek.

Smart, sleek & durable

No one knows how to best pack durability into a beautiful design like Sony. The slim 7.9 mm 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.

The Xperia Z smartphone from Sony is water-resistant up to 1 metre.

Water-resistant

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!

The Xperia Z smartphone from Sony has a tough glass fibre polyamide frame.

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 used on the Xperia Z smartphone display is much stronger than conventional glass.

Durable glass

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.

We tested the Xperia Z smartphone to make sure it could stand up to dust.

Dust-resistant

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 Xperia Z design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions.

OmniBalance design

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.

With One-touch mirroring you can mirror what’s on your Sony smartphone on your TV with a single touch.

One touch to entertainment

Discover the easy and fast way to wirelessly share music and photos that’s on your smartphone screen. One-touch mirroring with NFC technology lets you easily see all the content on your phone, on your TV.

Meet the behind-the-scenes powerhouse

The Battery Stamina Mode on your Sony smartphone gives you better battery life.

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.
