If you want to know why the Sony Xperia ZR is the modern man’s phone, check out the spec sheet, and answer this question: what is one of the biggest problems when you mix men and smart phones? Accidents. By accidents, we are referring to water damage, impact damage, and dust damage. However, the new Xperia ZR has answers for these problems. Throw in a spec sheet that will make any tech geek drool, and Sony has a real winner with their latest release. Read on to find out more.


The Word

Sony has always been a top competitor when it comes to electronics, however, they have struggled a bit in the smart phone market. All that changed earlier this year with the release of the Xperia ZR. What’s so special about this phone? Well, for starters, it is waterproof. Not to be confused with “water resistant,”the Xperia ZR is fully operational underwater up to 5 feet for 30 minutes. It has 13.1 megapixel camera that also functions under water. The Phone is completely sealed from dust as well, making it an excellent selection for those of us who have dirty jobs and dirty pockets.

The Specs

With a 4.6″ OLED high-definition 1920 x 1080p screen paired with 13.1 MP HD Camera is combo anyone can appreciate. That screen is also covered by a scratch resistant, shatterproof sheet to protect it. The Xperia ZR sports a quad-core 1.5 gHz processor with 2048 MB of RAM for super fast web browsing on that big screen. Memory is expandable up to 64 MB with an SD card. These specs alone ensure that the Xperia ZR is a competitor against other big releases such as the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the HTC one. What separates the Xperia Z is the completely water and dust proof design.


The Xperia ZR runs Android 4.1.2 with a custom touch from Sony. Other notable standard software includes the Sony Media applications package – Walkman, Album, and Videos. NFC (near field communication) is also included in the base package allowing “one touch” to mirror what is on the phone to compatible devices such as TVs and wireless speakers. High definition recording rounds out the list of most notable features for the phone.

Final Thoughts

The Xperia ZR is an excellent choice for those prone to dropping their phone in water or likely to experience high amounts of dust for any reason. The specs of the Xperia ZR are right in line with those manufactured by other companies that lack the element-proof shell. Overall, the Xperia Z is a great choice for anyone looking for an accident-resistant smartphone without sacrificing screen and camera quality or overall experience.
