Sony Xperia ZR review: Ready to dare

 

Squeezing your flagship smartphone in a tinier, sportier shell is the fad in Android these days. Not the one to blindly follow the pack, Sony has chosen to do things differently. The Xperia ZR didn't get as far down as the Galaxy S4 mini and the One...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; 3G with HSPA; LTE ; 4.55" 16M-color 720p capacitive touchscreen with 323ppi pixel density; Bravia Mobile Engine 2 ; Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean with custom UI ; Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU;...

It should be obvious by this point that the Sony Xperia ZR is not just another shrink-to-fit exercise like most of them minis. Instead of focusing on size, Sony chose to put the specs first, take it from there and see how compact it can get.

Sony Xperia ZR Review

 

With a 4.5” 720p screen, a 13-megapixel Exmor RS camera and the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset in tow, the Xperia ZR is certainly not your average mid-range model. What's more, the phone has kept the Xperia Z's signature ability to be water-resistant, which...

Sizable display with very good pixel density ; Powerful chipset for flawless performance

Average call quality ; Average camera ; Bland visuals

Although there are a few compromises associated with the otherwise solid performance of the Sony Xperia ZR, it manages present users with a satisfying experience that will surely be appreciated by tech-savvy people. The thicker profile, uninspiring...

Sony Xperia ZR Review

 

Sony made sure that you have enough options when getting their latest flagship. For those who prefer a glass-clad smartphone with dust and waterproof capabilities, there's the Xperia Z. For those who want a daily-driver with a 5-inch full HD display...

The Sony Xperia ZR is a smaller version of the flagship Xperia Z that offers much of the same features

Water and dust resistant ; Camera works underwater ; Compact design

A little thick ; No real wow factor ; No word on AU release

If you're annoyed by the trend of huge smartphones, the Sony Xperia ZR should be right up your alley. It's a smaller version of the flagship Xperia Z but it offers much of the same features and functions including water and dust resistance.

Sony Xperia ZR Review

 

The Xperia ZR is a new waterproof smartphone from Sony. Based on the similar chipset and almost identical hardware specs from the older siblings, the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL, the Xperia ZR is a smartphone ideal for the Indian climate conditions.

To sum up the whole, if you want a decent quad-core based Android smartphone with a dust-proof and water-proof body, the Xperia ZR is a great choice. The closest rival handsets we can list out in the price and performance category are the Samsung...
