Sony Xperia Z Won’t Let BlackBerry Z10 Come Up: It’s The Camera Doing All The Talking

So yes, we’ve already fallen in love with the Xperia Z ever since it was unveiled during CES 2013. Even though we needed any more reason to lose our hearts to this beauty, here’s the latest astounding feature this phone has.

The Xperia Z’s 13.1 MP rear camera with its Exmos RS sensor can apparently click unlimited images at the rate of 10 images per second with a 9 MP resolution. A new video has surfaced on the internet, demonstrating how the phone managed to click 999 images within a duration of just 68 seconds. As mind-blowing as it sounds, you may wonder why on earth anyone would want to click so many pictures of one particular subject, especially if the subject is still.

However, its potential is immense for those extreme shutterbugs – think of how this mode can be used to click multiple images in motion, almost depicting the series like a slow moving video. It’s a brilliant device, which just got even more drool-worthy thanks to this feature. Now, Sony, could you please just put an end to our helpless waiting and release the phone into the markets already?… Read the rest

Sony Xperia Z Vs Blackberry Z10 : Xperia Z Is The New Sexy, Would BB10 Be Able To Come Any Closer?

 

 

CES 2013 had picked its fave, right in the starting of New Year. With Sony Xperia Z, Sony has come out of its safety vault to go all out with features that strike a note repeatedly! Starting with the spell bounding looks to awesome features, this solid device from Sony is here to stay…

In looks it’s the sharp edges that leave a professional impact and even adds that extra funk worth flaunting at parties. The chassis of 7 quad core Qualcomm mm coupled with a screen 1080p and 5-inchs, the Xperia Z is powered by the dependable quad core Qualcomm processor.

  • The screen wows you with its super sharp images that raises the bar when it comes to screen resolution on smartphones. It may be not light on your pocket but is sure light in your hands, thanks to its with its   feather light body that is dust-resistant and water resisting too!
  • Before, we forget, it comes with a handle-without –care tag—drop it and you don’t have to worry, for it will not crack. The only condition remains that you cover the ports on the sides of the Z-edition.
  • Interface as smooth as cakewalk, the Xperia Z impressed with Android Jelly Bean running on RAM of 2GB. An Android upgrade is on Sony’s cards too. The onboard storage comes only until 16 GB but an expandable memory compatibility makes media enthusiasts beam broad. The CES was not just going by the buzz when it picked the Sony Xperia as its pet.
  • And before you think this is all that the Xperia Z has up its sleeve—look into the Exmor R sensor—all upgraded and polished.  It enhances snap quality and powerful video views are the two pluses that the sensor adds to the Xperia’s experience.

For now we know, Sony has stepped a notch higher and joined the mean world of smartphones –only to set a future date with the “under-covers” Blackberry 10, which is all set to come to town with hunger to outdo the Sony. Could that translate into reality with the BB 10? Check out.

  • This month could see curtains go up over the much-awaited BB 10 that is purportedly going through the final touches. The DEV 5 is touted to be the handset that would come with a keyboard—in the physical form– running the BlackBerry 10. The interface is in for a complete fillip. Android and iOS could be inspiring for the BB interface users might expect. The interface could be the ground for widgets, application lists and the all-important inbox.
    • This time the BB would come with lock screen display that reveals all your notifications, calendar update and unread messages. RIM states, “Any application, even third party ones, will be able to appear as an ‘Active Frame’ on the BB10 home screen, which is excellent news for anyone left frustrated by the limited widget options on Android or live tiles on Windows Phone. For those of you who may be concerned that these ‘Active Frames’ could be both data and battery intensive, Research in Motion assures us that this is not the case, with the QNX core of BlackBerry 10 providing efficient power management, and the frames only downloading the minimum amount of data required for them to update.”
    • The usual BB Hub would be equipped to handle multiple accounts for any e-mail service, message apps among hordes of apps like Facebook or even LinkedIn. The clicks on the BB could come with a ‘Time Shift’ tag—that functions like a smile detector.
    • The browser of the BB has received a makeover and believes in taking minimalism seriously. Industry pundits have given the green signal for the browser having faster speeds in comparison to the iOS 6. Though only time could tell if this is true. For now, the interface looks like the best part of the BlackBerry. Also, do not forget the bold design and the flawless HTML 5 integration.

However, for us, it could take longer and a market launch to decide if the BB-10 could wipe out the Xperia Z from the top slot that CES 2013 has graced it with.… Read the rest

Sony’s James Bond Phone Sony Xperia Z Makes Apple iPhone 5 Bite The Dust

Sony has launched an exciting range of smartphones at CES 2013, and we just can’t stop drooling at two of the hottest models from their lineup – the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL. We think the Xperia Z would be yet another Android device that Apple would have to worry about, and here’s why:

Display: To start with, the Xperia Z has a gorgeous 5-inch full HD display powered by Sony’s own Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. We’ve always maintained that the biggest disappointment about the iPhone 5 was its limited 4-inch display, and with yet another big screen device like the Xperia Z, we wonder if Apple’s finally taken note of this point. Even in terms of resolution, the Xperia Z’s 443 ppi display makes for a visual treat when compared with the iPhone 5’s 326 ppi display.

Processing power: The Xperia Z is also a lot more powerful – with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and 2 GB of RAM, here’s where multitasking really comes alive. On the other hand, the iPhone 5’s 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM may be sufficient for iOS, but if it’s heavier apps you’re planning to run, you know where to look.

Camera: If you’re among those who are addicted to your phone’s camera, here’s one more reason to cheer. The Sony Xperia Z comes with a 13.3 MP rear camera and a 2.2 MP front-facing camera. With Sony’s Exmos RS technology, this would be almost as good as a professional digital camera. Suddenly, the iPhone 5’s 8 MP camera sounds almost disappointing, doesn’t it?

Storage: The Xperia Z comes with 16 GB of internal storage, but also has a microSD card slot for those wanting more space. On the other hand, the iPhone 5 comes in 3 options – 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, but there’s no option for a microSD card slot if you ever need more space.

We especially love the fact that this is a smartphone that is water and dust resistant and is as rugged as you could want. Also announced during the CES 2013 event is the Xperia ZL, which is almost identical to the Xperia Z – but will be available only in some regions where the Xperia Z won’t be released. It has a slightly thicker body and doesn’t have the glass back panel. Also, the Xperia ZL will not have LTE capabilities and won’t be water and dust resistant.… Read the rest
