A few months after introducing the Xperia Z, Sony has embarked on another release, the Sony Xperia Z1. A smartphone that improvement in many respects to its predecessor and will fight face to face with the great masters of the market.
Many wonder why Sony developed as soon as your terminal star. It seems that pressure from Samsung, HTC and LG has been, and the need to be on everyone’s lips has made adelantasen the time of this renewal.
The Xperia Z1 is a significant improvement that enhances the criticism received in the first high-end device from the Japanese company.
It is built from a single piece of aluminum, known as design OmniBalance. This design was already used in the Xperia Z and characterized by rounded edges attached to a reflective surface, soft feeling on all sides.
Cases Xperia Z1
The Sony Xperia Z1 love at first sight but the ergonomics, in my view, could be improved, (although everyone likes). Use the Xperia Z1 with one hand can be difficult and uncomfortable. Think of a Samsung or HTC, all have adapted their device in one way or another so that we feel more comfortable with it. Sony makes it difficult in this paragraph, would only have to bend the corners and would be easier to adapt your hand to him.
All this device weighs 169 grams, 30 grams exceeds the Xperia Z. This heavier, not too noticeable and the terminal is very well balanced so as not to convey sense of weight.
Comes with a new aluminum frame, more compact, more resistant to water and dust and a glass body which exudes quality where you want to catch. Not surprisingly, this new mobile features IP58 certification that allows the same resistance to dust than its predecessor but a continuous dives into the water. Remember the Xperia Z had IP57 certification dives and only allowed 30 minutes to at most one meter deep.
Sony Xperia Z1 water
Who does not want to bathe with your device and immortalize that moment? However, like his brother, when we want to use the loudspeaker underwater, this stop ringing at the same intensity. Calm down, we just have to wait a few minutes and will enjoy the sound of Sony in its purest form, this “scare or trick” is caused by the protective layers Sony connector jack, as it has no cover to cover and up water (1-2 minutes) it does not evaporate the sound is impaired.
The Xperia Z1 falls just open the box, as he told me one of my best friends and industry experts, is love.
The Japanese company has placed a 5-inch TFT Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution and a density of 441 dpi) with Triluminos technology, also in view Bravia TVs, trademark, in addition to X-Reality Engine mobile.
With this technology, Sony manages to improve the quality and display contrast with the previous model, with richer colors, sharper moving images and better viewing experience.
Still, perhaps the viewing angles are not living up to expectations, and may have models such as the HTC One, which offer a better experience in this regard, in my view.

The new Sony Xperia Z1 also incorporates a plastic protector on the screen to avoid untimely scratches.
Sony incorporated in this device a camera that only appoint the number of megapixels say: I want !.

The Xperia Z1 Exmor RS incorporates a 20.7 megapixel sensor with a size of 1 / 2.3 “, a lens of 27 mm, a maximum aperture of f / 2.0 and a physical button for the camera.

With this sensor should have some photographs that could reach any device, with permission of Nokia Lumia 1020.
However, the camera of the Sony Xperia Z1 has its buts. Sony has placed one of the best sensor on the market with a very interesting software: drivers, post-processing modes, filters, etc., but after analysis of the Xperia Z1 can say that there are still some problems.
One is the post-processing, through the engine “BIONZ” .This attempt to remove noise from the pictures, and just makes you lose a lot of sharpness and detail. At first glance it seems to work and leave us decent pictures of admiration, however, the relizar zoom, we realize that loses detail and resolution, and more coming from a capture of a 20 megapixel sensor.

The level of customization of the camera is quite high, with a large number of modes and filters.

After the applications that Sony leaves us default on the device can also access a few apps to download and give more life to the camera.
