Design

The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.volume

77.97cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1080 x 1920px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has a touch screen
Sony Xperia Z
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.CPU speed

4 x 1.5GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2021)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

Cameras

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has a BSI sensor
Sony Xperia Z
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
7.has a flash
Sony Xperia Z
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
8.has manual exposure
Sony Xperia Z
This allows you to manually set the exposure.
9.has a CMOS sensor
Sony Xperia Z
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

Audio

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Sony Xperia Z
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
2.has NFC
Sony Xperia Z
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions, such as mobile payments. Note: this feature may not be available in all markets.
3.is DLNA-certified
Sony Xperia Z
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
8.has a gyroscope
Sony Xperia Z
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
Offline voice recognition enables you to perform voice actions, like dictating texts or using various voice commands, without an internet connection.

Miscellaneous

1.Price (global median value)

243.91 €

Updated on Sun Dec 05 2021
The global median price is determined by calculating the median value of all the prices available for a product, taking into account all markets.
