Sony Xperia Z: Size and build

You'd be forgiven for thinking that a phone with such a large screen would be pretty hefty, but the Xperia Z is actually a lot lighter than it looks, tipping the scales at It's also just 7.9mm , so it has a much svelter profile than the likes of the Nokia Lumia 920.

The "omni-balanced" design features tempered glass back and front for slick, symmetrical aesthetics. You'll also find a nice round aluminium on/off button half-way down the right-hand edge. Not only does it act as a premium style statement, it's also very easy to find at a glance so you won't be searching around for it when you first pick up the phone, as with some rivals.

It's certainly the best-looking Sony phone yet, with the brand seemingly having finally shaken of the somewhat dull designs of its Ericsson partnership.

The handset will be available in black or white, plus a purple model that will be exclusive to O2.

Sony Xperia Z: Features

Along with its big screen and slick design, the Xperia Z is also Water resistant. We're told that this is a much more standard features in the Japanese market, but it's still a relatively new feature in the UK - with the exception of the recentPanasonic Eluga. The Xperia Z packs the IP57 standard, which means that its water resistant up to 1m for 30 minuntes.

The phone also has Sony's brand new Mobile Bravia Engine 2, which has been designed for crisper detail, more saturated colours, and real time contrast optimisation. What's more, this is the first phone to include Sony's EXMOR RS sensor, enabling HDR.

You'll find a 13MP camera on the rear (with 1080p video), along with a 2MP front-facing cam that can deal with 720p video. Sony has also ported over the Superior Auto mode from its camera - this adjusts settings automatically to suit different light levels and movement, so in theory, the camera should perform well in low light conditions - usually the bane of the camera phone.
Other extras include Sony's Sweep Panorama, along with various other picture effects and a burst mode, operating at 10fps and taking any number of consecutive shots, until the memory is full up.

As with most of Sony's latest mobile product, the Xperia Z suports NFC one-touch operation and Sony will be introducing a selection of compatible products including a tiny, ball-shaped Bluetooth speaker.

The phone will also support 4G - for all UK LTE networks.

Sony Xperia Z: Screen

One of the key features of the new phone is its massive 5-inch screen which makes it larger than the likes of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3. The display sports a full HD 1080p resolution along with an pixel density of 443, compared to the iPhone 5's 326.

The screen felt very responsive, and touchscreen operation even works when the display or your hands are wet - very useful for drizzly British weather.

Details on the screen appear pin-sharp and colours are bright and punchy. The extra pixel density is something that will really help when it comes to videos and zooming in on web pages.

Sony Xperia Z: Battery

The handsets sports a 2370MAh battery and Sony has also thoughtfully includeded a feature called Battery Stamina Mode which is designed to conserve as much battery life as possible.
The idea is that when the screen is off, the phone automatically turns off everything else, except for telephony. The mode is optional and you can also tweak the settings so that you can choose apps to leave on - for example, so that you can get email and social network notifications.
According to Sony, the new mode can extend battery life by up to four times. The phone also has a Low Battery Mode which, when enabled, turns off all non-vital funcitons automatically as soon as the battery power drops below a certain level.
