Sony Xperia Z1 – The 20.7-Megapixel Smartphone


After the release of Xperia ZR which was specially-designed to shoot full HD videos underwater, it was evident that expectations from Sony were sky-high. Sony has recently revealed their new lens-type cameras which do not only have individual functionality, but can also be attached to a Smartphone at will. While we are thoroughly impressed with the Sony’s progress this year, the company has no plans of stopping to blow our minds. Welcome the newest baby in Sony’s bandwagon – Xperia Z1 with a 20.7-megapixel camera.


Apart from the powerful camera, the Smartphone comes with a 3,000mAh battery, 16GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. So what do we get when all of these features are available on a single device? A titan which is expected to match up to (or even exceed) the popularity of iPhone 5, HTC One, and Samsung Galaxy S IV. The appearance of the Z1 is somewhat similar to its predecessor, Xperia Z. The only difference is the curved edges which makes the frame feel sturdier than the Z. Oh, and did I mention that the Z1 is also waterproof like the ZR?

The camera is the main focus of this Smartphone. The camera comes with “G-Lens”, a BIONZ for mobile image processing engine, and a 27mm wide angle . This makes the camera work extremely fast, and is capable of snapping breath-taking photos in daylight. It works equally well during low light conditions, but adjusting the focus can be a little bothersome at times.

Now let’s talk about the different modes. There are the Timeshift burst, Panorama, and Superior auto modes. You are sure to love the AR effect mode where you can add virtual reality elements like a fish or a dinosaur into a photo. There is also another interesting mode known as the Info-eye. This mode integrates with services like GoodReads or Vivino to recognize objects and bring out relevant information about them.

With all the specifications that has been covered so far, there is no doubt about the fact that Sony has a winner on its hands.
