Sony Xperia Z1 Singapore - Phone That Can Walk On Water

The Sony Xperia series is one of the first few smartphones that stepped up the game by banking on its physical functionality that could easily adapt to the wet and dusty environment without a scratch. The SonyXperiaZ1 stands out greatly in the competition due to its ability to withstand exposure to dust and water, making this the perfect device for users who want to take a dip in the beach accompanied by a phone that could snap an under water selfie.

IP 58 Certification - Dust and Water Resistant

The highly advertised feature of the Xperia Z1 is its underwater and dust proof feature. Its physical build has a lot to play in making this feature more than possible. It can be immersed in 1.5 meters of water for 30 mins, and can keep dust and water from entering the internal circuits of the phone. This feature is perfect for those users who love the beach and the outdoors and are fond of capturing every moment they’re in it.

High Pixel Shooter

One of the standout features of the Sony Xperia Z1 is its 20.7 MP auto focus camera with Exmor RS sensor. The camera doesn't just take a high-resolution photo, the quality of the photo that it takes is improved with its low light photography, all thanks to its Exmor RS sensor. The Exmor RS Sensor is sony's illuminated sensor that captures twice the amount of light than the regular sensor in many mobile phone cameras. Aside from the main camera that sports a 20.7 MP camera, its front facing camera is 2MP, for that perfect selfie.

If you're into video recording, whether you're using the rear or the front cam, you're sure to enjoy reliving it in high resolution. Both cameras can take 1080p video, at 30fps.

Speed Equates to Power

The Xperia Z1 issony'ssecond device that runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chipset, which is powered by a quad-core 2.2 GH Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 for top notch graphic rendering (especially in games), and a 2GB RAM. It's processing prowess is indeed on of the most powerful in the market, allowing its user to run applications and games smoothly. Its snappy chipset can really make a huge and obvious different in everything that its users do around the device's Android OS. Not only is its muscled up on the outside, it's also built to stand out from the inside.

Paving The Way to A New Standard Feature

Whether you'll love it or you'll hate it, the Sony Xperia Z1 surely holds a special place in the mobile phone competition. Being a member of the smartphone series that brought water and dust resistant to the mainstream market, plus an overwhelming camera, it cannot be denied that this phone stands out on its own.
