About the handset

Key features include:

  • 5-inch full HD display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core processor
  • 13-megapixel fast-capture camera
  • Dust and water resistant
  • STAMINA mode to increase battery life.

The display has a Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, which optimises images so they’re sharper and brighter for the best in contrast and colour management.

Battery STAMINA Mode knows when your screen is off, shuts down the battery-draining apps you don’t need and then starts them up again when the screen is back on.

Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: “We’re extremely pleased to offer the Xperia Z for pre-order from 1 February and coupled with our highly competitive price plans and no surprise out of bundle data charges, this premium smartphone brings you the ultimate internet experience all on our Ultrafast network.”
