Look and Feel


Sony's Xperia Z is one of the best looking smartphones on the market, as soon as you see it in person, you'll love the look of it from top to bottom. It feels great in the hand, and is great to use. The Xperia Z weighs in at just 146 grams, making it quite light in the hand.


In terms of size, we have (measured in inches) 5.47 x 2.80 x 0.31.

The front of the Xperia Z has the iconic SONY logo up the top, with the earpiece above it. Down the bottom of the Xperia Z we have the microphone, for you know, speaking into.

The Xperia Z from the back looks gorgeous, with its beautiful style and XPERIA logo on the back. We can see the power button sticking out from the side, which is definitely a departure from the usual styling we can expect from the likes of Samsung and LG.

On the right side of the phone we have the loudspeaker, volume rocker, power button and SIM card slot (from left to right, respectively).

On the left side, we have the power/charging microUSB slot and microSD card slot. These are little slits that can be opened up, exposing the port. When closed, the Xperia Z is actually water-proof - yes, water-proof.

On the very top of the phone we have the usual 3.5mm headphone/speaker jack.

At the bottom of the phone we have a little space to put a cord in and use it to hold it around your wrist.
