T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1s review: 20 megapixel camera phone in a waterproof wrapper

 

Summary: The Sony Xperia Z1s is one of the first official US wireless carrier smartphones for Sony in recent times and it has some great features. It's unfortunate that a maker of excellent TVs can't seem to get mobile displays right.

Over the past 18 months, CEO Kaz Hirai has been on a mission to unify the sprawling empire entrusted to him into a more cohesive and focused One Sony. On the mobile front, that's resulted in...

The prettiest waterproof phone around ; Has the sensor of a point-and-shoot camera ; Snappy performance

Display is a clear step behind the competition ; Ergonomics leave room for improvement ; Software is not as up to date as the hardware

Until Sony recognizes the importance of great displays, its phones can only be better, never best

Sony Xperia Z1 review: a high-spec cameraphone without the hump

 

It's time to set the record straight: the original Xperia Z, launched back in February, was a decent phone. A solid phone. It was as if Sony had suddenly

An excellent all-rounder ; Waterproof and dustproof ; Attractive design, well-built ; Powerful camera in a skinny frame

Lack of image stabilization hurts video and low-light stills ; 1080p display has bad viewing angles

The Z1 ticks all the main boxes for a cutting-edge Android flagship, with superb 20-megapixel stills being an added bonus. However, if you're looking for the very best cameraphone on the market, this isn't it.

Quite big even for a 5-inch screen phone, Non-user-replaceable battery, Below average loudspeaker performance (probably due to the enhanced waterproofing), No proper video playback decoders (XviD, DivX) out of the box

The Sony Xperia Z1 marks the second rebirth of the company's premium take on what a smartphone should be like. The Xperia Z was a great foundation and laid the groundwork for the company to expand with the Z1. Yes, the naming scheme doesn't really make...
