The Xperia Z4v, exclusive to Verizon in the US, is able to detect what headphones you are wearing, and can optimize the music or gameplay so as to ensure you receive the best sound possible. 

Sony, the music industry lead, has created their newest flagship in honor of what it does best: music.

The Xperia Z4v, exclusive to Verizon in the US, is able to detect what headphones you are wearing, and can optimize the music or gameplay so as to ensure you receive the best sound possible.

While that’s pretty nifty, Xperia fans will be more happy about the waterproofing - which is now included. Previously, Sony’s Xperias have been water resistant with a USB port that required removal for each charge. The new Z4v is outfitted with a bare microUSB port, and is completely waterproof anyways - similar to the Xperia tablets.

It’s the newest and the best: no doubt that it’s Sony’s latest flagship, even more advanced than the Z4 that was introduced this April. While both devices are powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, the Z4v upped the game with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display that boasts an impressive 2,560 x 1,440 pixels - that’s right, the same as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4.

 The handset also has a Remote Play feature, which PlayStation 4 owners will love, because you can stream your console games to your phone over the home network.

As for the camera, while it is still the same 20.7-megapixel resolution of the Z3v, the ISO rating is now as high as 12,800, which drastically improves the low-light capacity. It’s also sporting a better auto mode (which we are grateful for, because it’s the standard almost everyone uses), and it has 52 different scene settings - and, as a bonus, the camera can manage 4K video.

Even the selfie snapper is improved, with a 5 megapixel sensor and a wide-angle 25mm lens.

The device is capable of high-resolution audio, as well. The built-in internal 32GB storage will be eaten away quickly, but that’s the microSD port is for.

To top it off, the 3000 mAh battery is totally capable, and the device has a low-power mode that allows you to choose which apps you still want to run. Sony claims that if you cut off everything except calls and texts, the phone can last up to 7 days. I won’t hold my breath, though.
