Sony wisely decided to present its flagship model of the year at CES, nearly two months before MWC, using this period to improve the purchasers’ concept of the Xperia series. Aware of the fact that it offers a technologically superior device, Sony has returned to the brotherhood of phone makers who set the bar higher. The company also enjoyed a great deal of attention which it would not have enjoyed if it had made its annoncment in Barcelona next week, among the more aggressive competition, as rival device’s displays will surely not have the same contrast and viewing-angle difficulties.
Despite the stated shortcoming regarding the display, the Xperia Z is a device that offers fantastic performance, excellent imaging sharpness, and outstanding multimedia applications and connection options with other devices, making it the most suitable smartphone on the market for entertainment enthusiasts and one of the best smartphones in general. There is clearly room for improvement… as there is clearly room for Sony on the market.
