I would say in about 3 weeks or so. Usually GSM arena are one of the last when it comes to reviewing devices.

Detailed french review of the Xperia Z

Let me post the translation of their verdict.

Design : ★★★★★

Sony understands the expectations of the public: a high-end smartphone should have materials "premium". With all the glass on the phone and a simple design, we have (in our opinion) the best design today. Its dimensions and weight are perfectly balanced and format 5 inches will seem more than ever the ideal format.

Display: ☆ ★ ★ ★ ★

With FullHD resolution, pixels are no longer visible to the naked eye. This very recent slab seems to be a bit too bright and distorts the colors, but it does note that comparing competing models. In normal use, you will not notice anything unusual. Instead, you will be amazed by the density of pixels!

In terms of color reproduction it bests the One X, but they mention that whites are not as bright as One X and blacks in a completely dark room are lighter compared to One X.


Camera: ★ ★ ★ ★

13 megapixels which currently surpasses competitors Android Market. HDR is not so stunning, but this sensor is impressive smartphone.


Performance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The heavy, very heavy, with Android has never been so fluid through Project Butter.

Software: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

While HTC and Samsung Android appropriated largely by modifying the interface, Sony prefers improve by a few keystrokes. The whole is more than coherent and bundled software is suitable (especially for part Walkman / Albums / Movies).

However, we regret that PlayStation certified phone Mobile does not include a link to download the application directly to the store or better it is directly integrated.

Autonomy: ☆ ★ ★ ★ ★

According to the views, you can find good or bad. If you consider the phone as a phablet (type Galaxy Note), you will have difficulty in exceeding the day. However, if we consider instead the Z Xperia smartphone as a classic, it has similar performance, even better.


Battery life is said to be much better than Nexus 4 and closer to Note 2.

Final Score: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The coherent offered by the Sony Xperia Z deserves a 5/5 because it is the best phone of the year 2013 which is not very difficult as it is one of the first premium that comes to us early this year. More generally, it is also the best high-end smartphone confused every generation taking the best of what is. It is certainly not the cheapest (difficult to compete with the Nexus 4) and will see land competition soon, but Sony has erased all the defects of previous generations of its Android smartphones.

Pretty great, overall. Inching closer to pulling the trigger on the XZ.

4/5+ Editors choice, Major cons being viewing angles and camera quality (pending final firmware)
