Sony Xperia Z1 DESIGN

The Sony Xperia Z1 has an impressive 5-inch LCD display screen, with scratch-resistant glass panels on the front and back. With a measurement of 144 x 74 x 8.5mm, this Xperia Z1 is considered a slim device. The aluminum and glass body no doubt makes the Xperia Z1 look good but it also makes the phone heavier than other smartphones.

What’s the most outstanding about this Sony Xperia Z1 is waterproof and weatherproof! It’s kinda cool that you can wash your smartphone 🙂

Overall Conclusion

Just a quick glance at the Xperia Z1 you will know that this new Sony flagship is a premium device. With glass on both front and back and a piece of aluminium wrapped around the edges, this Xperia Z1 is truly gorgeous and feels solid holding it on the hand. The dust and water resistant feature provides a certain degree of ruggedness and it means you can actually take photos and videos underwater.

The physical two-way shutter button and combined with the angular shape of the device makes the Xperia Z1 feels like a compact camera when taking pictures than other smartphones we’ve seen in the market. A long-press of the shutter button gives you quick access to the camera app so that you could capture the decisive moment.

Nevertheless, the Sony Xperia Z1’s reliable exposure and decent image quality in its 8MP mode make it an ideal point-and-shoot smartphone for those users who prefer all-automatic shooting. Thanks to its physical shutter button, quick camera access and angular, “camera-friendly” shape it’s one of the awesome smartphone cameras.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
