Sony went into this year’s CES event looking to shake things up. When the company revealed the Xperia Z and ZL, it did just that. It was safe to say that most of the media were pleasantly surprised with what Sony had come up with. In fact, one of the standout moments of the entire show was the Sony Xperia Z, as the device clearly shows the company’s refocused attention to mobile, gaming and imaging. The Xperia Z ushers in a new design language known as omnibalance, which is a representation of 90-degree angles, even weight distribution, and flat glossy sides. Pretty stuff.
The Sony Xperia Z showcases two killer features that both live on the hardware side: a 5-inch 1080p display and dust/water proof resistance (more on this later). In this review, I’ll give you my perspective on whether Sony has a winner with this new offering. Enjoy!
