Sony Xperia™ Z – available for pre-order on Three.

Xperia™ Z brings together the best of Sony’s technology, design and connectivity to deliver a precision engineered full HD smartphone. The phone is smart, sleek and durable with a reflective glass surface and is resistance to dust and water which means it’s perfect for taking photos in the rain or texting from the bath!

The 5” full HD display has a Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 which automatically optimises images so they’re sharper and brighter so you’ll get the best in contrast and colour management.

Xperia™ Z also offers more intelligent battery management with Battery STAMINA Mode so your phone lasts even longer. It knows when your screen is off, shuts down the battery-draining apps you don’t need and then starts them up again when the screen is back on. Combined with the powerful 1.5GHz quad-core processor means you have a top performing smartphone which won’t let you down.
