There’s a reason why Sony’s Xperia series has come to be regarded as one of the best Android series of phones available, and the Xperia Z1s is no exception. High spec, stable as a rock on top of more rocks, and a camera that will blow your socks off.
The Sony Xperia is covered by our Mr Aberthon warranty, is unlocked to all SIM card networks and is in brand new.
Well, it’s 4G, it’s waterproof and dust-proof and will survive being submerged in 1.5m of water for 30 minutes. The Sony Xperia Z1s has a bright and clear 5” screen with Full HD resolution that is covered in shatter proof glass. It has a quad core, 2.2GHz processor to keep everything running along very smoothly indeed.
The huge 3000mAh battery will keep you going all day. It includes, as well, a very generous 32GB of internal storage and a MicroSD slot to add another 64GB if you wish to. In addition, we will mention the 4G, Dual band Wi-fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Assisted GPS, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. All these connection options sure make a very respectable list.
Ah yes, the camera. Brace yourself for this.
The front camera is an enormous 20.7 MP. It is the largest sensor ever used in a smartphone at the time of release. The Xperia is capable of shooting Full HD video at 30fps on both the front and 2MP rear camera. It has a LED flash plus geo-tagging, face detection, HDR and panorama options.
As a guide, you could produce 18” x 12” prints at high resolution which is, like, really big in smartphone terms.
Well, yes, actually.
It’s common for Android device manufacturers to put their own front end skins, called “launchers” over the default Android look. They do that to improve both the look and functionality of the device. Whereas some manufacturers come close to making things worse with bloated and memory-hogging launchers, Sony have got the Xperia launcher bang on the money.
It looks and feels great, and in no way hits the performance of the phone at all.
The Xperia series of smartphones has proved to be a triumph for Sony, and the Z1s is right up there in the list. It looks great, and is as sleek and slick as you’d expect any Sony electronics to be. Throw in all that high-quality hardware and you’ve a phone which positions itself as a real contender in the marketplace.
