HTC M7 Vs Sony Xperia Z Vs Samsung Galaxy S4: Is HTC Imbued With Elan To Rule In 2013?

2013’s promising to become an even more exciting year than 2012, and it’s barely even begun! The battle for the best smartphone of 2013 is already seeing a lot of contenders, many of which are still rumored to be launching. But boy, when they do, believe us when we say that you as a consumer will be amazingly confused and spoilt for choice. So today, we’re pitting the awesome Sony Xperia Z against the rumored HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S4 to see if these two phones could pull away Sony’s expectedly huge sales.

Screen Size: In terms of screen size, the M7 could lose out a little bit due to its 4.7-inch display, while the Xperia Z has and the Galaxy S4 is expected to have 5-inch screens. In terms of resolution too, the Xperia Z is powered by Sony’s very own Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and promises to have spectacular viewing, while the Galaxy S4 is rumored to have a 441 ppi. Looks like the M7 might fall back in this category for sure.

Tech specs: While we still don’t know the exact processor in the Galaxy S4, looks like it could most probably be a quad-core processor and 2 GB RAM. The Xperia Z’s got a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB RAM, but if you want a little more power, pick up the M7 with its 1.7 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB RAM.

Camera: In terms of the rear camera, we have to say these 3 phones are equally matched – all of them have a 13 MP rear camera. But as of now, we think the Xperia Z has a slight edge over the others, thanks to its Exmos RS sensor that lets it reproduce high quality pictures. In terms of the front-facing camera too, the Xperia Z has a 2.2 MP one, when compared with the 2 MP front-facing camera in the M7 and the 1.9 MP equivalent in the Galaxy S4.

Another interesting feature in the Xperia Z is that it’s water and dust resistant, and that’s something we haven’t been hearing about in the M7 and the Galaxy S4. But if either of these phones will actually become more popular than the Xperia Z remains to be seen.… 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

You can adjust many features of the camera, including the resolution, white balance, timer, ISO, flash, exposure and some others like HDR, smile shutter, and even focus mode. When you’ve got it in your hands, you can easily be forgiven for thinking of it as a digital camera and not just a phone camera.

We also love the album app in the Xperia Z, which organizes thumbnail previews of the images you’ve clicked very nicely. Organized by date, it lets you browse through your picture library so easily, finding images becomes so much faster on this device. You can also display the images on a globe, thanks to the geotag feature, which will then pin your images based on the locations they were clicked in.… Read the rest
