Sony Xperia Z1s specs rating review: 68.5
Sony has one great advantage, the great camera. Right now Sony has on the market one of the best cameras, a 20.7MP monster, far away from the competition. The brand new Sony Xperia Z1s has this great camera with the same winning software. Let’s see why this phone goes straight to the top of the market leaving only one space in front of it.
Sony Xperia Z1s has a 5 inches screen with 441 pixels per inch. It is a full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. The competition is high on that field and there are a lot of 5+inches phones. The 441PPI bring this phone on the third place along with 5 other devices (4 Sony devices and Samsung Galaxy S4). The best screen right now is HTC One with 469PPI and then Google Nexus 5 with 445PPI. Of course you will not notice the difference between these phones and the 441PPI phones. The Sony screen is good but nobody can win the eye-popping hues and high-contrast of Samsung’s OLED handsets.
Sony Xperia Z1 was the leader with 20.7MP camera and now there are two more phones with a super camera, these are Sony Xperia Z1s and Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. Both of them have the best camera of the market on the Android field. Of course there is Nokia Lumia 1020 with the 41MP camera but it is too slow for us. The Sony cameras are far in front of the 13MP competition so if you need one of the best camera phones, you have to choose one of them. They all have some impressive technologies like Exmor RS, G Lens or Bionz that sound good and also Superior Auto that takes great shots.
Sony Xperia Z1s has one of the best processors on the market. The device is fast but not as fast as Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This is because Sony Xperia Z1s has 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB of RAM of Note 3. In the market there are a lot of quad core processors and Sony Xperia Z1s is one of the fastest devices along with LG G2, Google Nexus 5, Sony Xperia Z1, Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung Galaxy S4.
Battery is what you need when you have a super phone. The battery size depends on the size of the device. So the biggest batteries are found on extra big devices like Huawei Ascend Mate and LG G Flex. Sony Xperia Z1s has a 3000mAh battery along with a lot of other devices. There is no other 5 inches phone with bigger battery. Huawei Ascend D2 is also a 5 inches phone with 3000mAh battery. Sony has a also Stamina mode software that helps you make the phone last longer.
Sony Xperia Z1s comes with Android 4.3 and unfortunately this is not the latest Android version. We would like to have Android 4.4 as this is a new device. But it will be updated soon. Sony Xperia Z1s has also a lot of software features like Social live that lets you broadcast directly via Facebook. Sony smartphones are software rich phones and you need to choose if you need all this extra features or you need a pure Android like Google Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.
SIZE & DESIGN
No surprise here. Sony Xperia Z1s has the same design as all other Sony devices. It is lighter than Sony Zperia Z1 but a 0.1mm fatter. Sony has also a slim device called Sony Xperia Z Ultra (6.5mm) but Sony Xperia Z1s is far from that body. It weighs 162g and is 8.6mm slim. Not that slim but good for your hand.
VERDICT – should I buy this device?
Sony Xperia Z1s is a new device and that gives a lot of points. It has one of the best cameras of the market and extra powerful tech specs like the processor and the screen. It is full of apps, it is also waterproof but you won’t find the latest Android version. This phone is great for Sony and camera lovers.
