It combines a large 1/2.3" 20.7MP Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, Sony's award-winning G Lens and intelligent BIONZ for mobile image processing engine into a phone with a form factor you're used to. With Superior Auto mode it helps you get the most out of these technologies without worrying about camera settings.
A sudden downpour, hard desert winds or falling into the kitchen sink – the waterproof and dust-resistant1 Xperia Z1 will handle it all. With its IP55/IP58 rating, you can even take photos and videos almost 5 feet (1.5 meters) underwater to capture free-floating hairstyles or spectacular belly flops from a low angle.

Blazing Fast Performance
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 800 Quad-core 2.2Ghz processor with 2GB RAM, experience super-fast performance, jaw dropping graphics and ultra-efficient battery use. Become a master of multitasking minus the lag. Get where you're going with Google maps. Stream a hilarious YouTube™ clip smoothly on the fly, or download the latest apps and make the most of your new Xperia Z1. Best of all, the processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don't.
Long Live Your Battery
Improve your standby time with Battery STAMINA Mode, a more intelligent battery management system. As soon as the screen goes off, battery-draining apps running in the background are quickly shut down instead of pointlessly draining your battery when they're not even in use. Wake Xperia Z1 up, and they'll start up again automatically. Worried about missing an important Facebook or Twitter™ update? Don't be. Customize which programs you'd like notifications pushed from and stay on top of whatever you'd like
