Take a chance on the Xperia Z1

Amid all the hype surrounding the latest iPhone and Samsung Galaxy devices, Sony’s latest flagship mobile phone, Xperia Z1, is another one to watch out for.

You might not notice a huge amount of difference from its predecessor, Xperia Z, released earlier this year and hailed at the time for its waterproof features. But the Z1 is far more durable.

From £469, Xperia Z1 is dustproof, shockproof and you can now use it underwater to a depth of 1.5 metres for 30 minutes. How great is that? Now we can swim, shower or watch videos while having a bath on our smartphone (although salt water, sand, mud and liquid chemicals are best to be avoided).

The other big draw is a bigger battery and camera, which has been bumped up to a very incredible 20.7 megapixels, with a new lens, a bigger image sensor taken from Sony’s camera-making division, and a new image processing engine.

It has been complimented for its more naturalistic colours and is supposed to be a lot faster thanks to its updated processor, a Quallcomm quat core chip clocking in at 2.2 GH.

Would you buy it over the latest iPhone and Samsung releases?
