Sony Xperia Z1s (T-Mobile)

 

Sony brings some welcome innovation to Android camera phones with the Xperia Z1s, a potent, waterproof model that nonetheless falls just short of greatness.

Fast. Sleek styling. Waterproof. Extra-large battery. Fun camera apps

Poor call quality. Display isn't particularly vivid. A bit large and heavy. Uneven camera performance

Sony is ratcheting up the camera phone wars with the Android-powered Xperia Z1s ($528 direct). Available exclusively on T-Mobile, the Xperia Z1s is a waterproof smartphone with a 5-inch 1080p display, just like its predecessor, the Xperia Z. The Z1s...

Sony Xperia Z1S review:

 

At least in the US, Sony has yet to create a blockbuster smartphone on par with the Samsung Galaxy S4 or Google Nexus 5 . With the Xperia Z1S, its latest flagship handset, the company makes a brave attempt at a smoother sail in American waters, but a...

The Sony Xperia Z1S has a striking, waterproof design, a fast processor, and a feature-packed camera that takes quality pictures.

The Xperia Z1S' screen pales in comparison with other flagship smartphones' displays. The handset’s glass chassis feels slippery and collects prints and smudges easily.

The Xperia Z1S is the most impressive smartphone Sony has ever sold on any carrier, but an inferior screen makes Samsung's Galaxy handsets better deals.

Sony Xperia Z1s (T-Mobile) Review

 

Sony's Xperia Z1s is a powerful waterproof smartphone with long battery life, but its display and camera could be better.

Waterproof design; Powerful performance; Excellent battery life; PlayStation 4 app preloaded; Innovative camera apps

Display looks washed out; Underwhelming camera; Speakers can be grating

Sony's Xperia Z1s is a powerful waterproof smartphone with long battery life, but its display and camera could be better.

Sony Xperia Z1S Review

 

During CES, Sony announced the upcoming availability of the Sony Xperia Z1S – a slight variation of the company's flagship smartphone, bound for T-Mobile yet again. It's no doubt a specs monster like the rest of the stuff out there, but knowing that...

Premium made smartphone ; Waterproof ; Better than average camera ; Snappy performance

Larger than most other phones with 5” displays ; Display washes out easily at angles

Sony deserves credit for doing better this time around, seeing that the official announcement to launch time frame is by all means more palatable than last year’s Sony Xperia Z lengthy roll out. Consumers won’t have to wait long for this latest...

Sony Xperia Z1S Review (T-Mobile): Big Magenta gets a bit of style

 

Sony has a habit of releasing smartphones in the US months after they've already been seen in Europe and Asia. The Xperia Z1S shortened the wait time somewhat, but is the Sony Xperia Z1S still a phone worth experiencing?
