  • Specifications

Get the latest cutting-edge technology from Sony in a premium smartphone. Its digital compact quality camera delivers stunning photos - even underwater thanks to its waterproof and dust-resistant body. And watch the sharpest, most vibrant video using its premium 5-inch full HD screen with BRAVIA technology.

Digital compact camera quality in a smartphone

Why pack a separate camera for your holiday or night out? The Xperia Z1 is built from the same components as a Sony digital compact. Take sharper, clearer and brighter photos with its wide-angle lens and powerful image sensor. And don't worry about choosing the wrong setting - the Xperia Z1's automatic settings ensure you'll get great results whether shooting in low light, capturing fast-moving objects or zooming in.

Sharp, vibrant full HD display

Enjoy cinema quality on the small screen every time with the Xperia Z1. Its 5-inch full HD screen boasts the widest colour spectrum of any smartphone display, so videos deliver more vivid and realistic colours. The picture is sharper and cleaner thanks to Sony X-Reality engine, which analyses every frame to reduce noise, sharpen images and optimise contrast and colour. The end result is one great-looking movie, whether you're watching an action thriller or rom-com.

Waterproof and dust-resistant

Looking for a phone to handle the rough and tumble of outdoor life? The Xperia Z1 is constructed from durable materials that aren't just scratch and dust-resistant, but waterproof in up to 1.5 metres of freshwater too for up to 30 minutes. You can even take it into the pool, to capture the world's best dive (or worst underwater hairstyle).

Powerful and long-lasting

Enjoy a smooth and responsive experience thanks to the Xperia Z1's powerful quad-core processor, which zips through games, media and whatever tasks you throw at it. All that performance doesn't come at the cost of battery life, either - thanks to Sony's Battery STAMINA mode, which intelligently switches off non-essential functions when the phone is in standby, the battery can last even longer - up to four times - between recharges.
