Sony Xperia Z1
The Sony Xperia Z1 replaces the Xperia Z as Sony's flagship smartphone, keeping the previous model's angular design, Full HD screen and waterproof body (IP58 certified). But the Z1's quad-core processor has been supercharged to 2.2GHz, and its camera now boasts an impressive 20.7 megapixels.

The Sony Xperia Z1 is beautifully made and comes with a lot of processing power. However, its pixel-level image quality is not quite up there with the best. Some competitors also offer better imaging features. That said, the Sony Xperia Z1's reliable exposure and pleasant tonality make it an ideal point-and-shoot device for Auto Mode shooters. Thanks to its physical shutter button and quick camera access, it's one of our favorite smartphone cameras this year.
