Sony Xperia Z, world’s most compact 5-inch smartphone set to arrive this April

We saw the beautiful Sony Xperia Z late last month and it was a sight to behold design. For those who value design on their handsets, the Xperia Z is set to arrive this April for Php32,490.


This precision-engineered Full HD smartphone is the world’s most compact smartphone with a 5-inch display according to Strategy Analytics. It features a unique OmniBalance design on a sleek 7.9mm body with subtly rounded edges and smooth reflective surfaces on all sides making it easy to handle and use.

Sony’s superphone is also impressively “œlifeproof” having the highest levels of water and dust resistance in a premium smartphone. It utilizes a tempered glass and anti-shatter film on the front and back, as well as the ability to act as an underwater camera up to 1 meter in depth for 30 minutes.

Under the hood of the Xperia Z smartphone you’ll find a 1.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip along with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. It’s also equipped with a 13-megapixel Exmor R mobile camera at the back and a 2.2-megapixel in front and both capable of Full HD video recording.


Is this the perfect “˜it’ phone and lifestyle companion for you? Experience it at Xperia concept stores to find out before getting it next month. It will be available in Black, White, and Purple.

    Isn’t the S4 the most compact 5″ phone? Granted it is the most compact 5″ water-resistant phone.
    Xperia Z: (5.47 x 2.80 x 0.31 in)
    S4: (5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 in)

      maybe what they mean is it’s the most compact 5′ Phone when it arrives and until the S4 becomes available in the market. haha

      anyway, SG4 i think is overrated like its predecessor the SG3. I don’t like phones that are mainstream. haha

      The iPhone remains to suck because of its major burden, the iTunes. 🙂


      • I am too much for Xperia Z but not after S4’s launch. S4 is not overrated, its features deserve the due attentions. Sony’s Ingress Protection (IP) rating 57 is its only edge against S4.

        yeah, dahil wala pa yung s4. pero still, kahit mas manipis s4, di hamak na mas maganda naman itong xperia z.

    Mas gusto ko itsura nung ZL. IMO

    SGS4, HTC One, Xperia Z – All have topnotch specs and it’s just a matter of user preferrence. “For me”, I would go for Xperia Z. Even though the SGS4 and HTC One has its own advantage over one another, I would still value the looks and design of a smartphone. Xperia Z all the way! -Best looking, still monster specs.

  • ohmygoolai

    wow that’s what you called “Beauty with Brain”.. awesome design with excellent features.. it will really worth the price.. this time sony xperia z outruns samsung’s flagship sgs4..

  • JrPeteza

    maganda naman talaga ang Sony xperia Z pagdating sa specs, kaso talo sa HTC One X, mag beats built in na. Sa graphics din, mas maganda ang HTC One X kasi Nvidia tegra

  • toto

    il go for sony xperia z! i dont like the design of sg4. xperia is the best!

  • zarne

    Samsung S4 has added new features to this new model, mostly new gimmicks. For build and quality, I prefer Sony’s Z but this a matter of personal choice among consumers.

    Im torn between Xperia Z and Htc one. If walang delays by the end of April, I will get the htc one.
    Samsung s4 octacore nya ang processor but most of the applications doesn’t support octa processing. They say for battery saving? nah I don’t buy it.

  • baste_igal

    what is important is that the phone is durable. how will you enjoy your phone if you cannot use that in the beach or pool. i have sony xperia acro s and i could say that its the phone that you can enjoy especially if you’re an outdoor person. i was once own a samsung smartphone, an iphone and i could say they are beast phone but not like sony xperia . . . durability+beauty+brains = xperia.

    • tonazify

      hmm wayback in 90’s we enjoy pools beach and other outdoor activities because we dont have cellphones. but you hahaha you’ll buy a phone for the sake you can enjoy it outdoors. I enjoy my 3310 outdoors/hiking swimming? plastic bag will do hahaha downfall I cant tweet/instagram it ? lol ultra gay

      xperia = brains / you = no brains
