Sony Xperia Z benchmarks, sample underwater videos

We ran an early benchmark on our Sony Xperia Z so we can compare it with the other handsets that have been released. We also took the phone and subjected the camera under a number of under-water scenarios.

In the three benchmarks we ran on the Xperia Z, all of them reported very high scores.

Quadrant Standard showed a total score of 8,090 while Antutu Benchmark gace it an over-all score of 20,179.

Nenamark 2 scored the Xperia Z at 60.0fps. These numbers are among the highest we’ve seen in any flagship smartphone and considering the display is full HD 1080p, it is an impressive result.

As for the camera, we took some sample shots and a video.

The video below simulates a scenario where the handset is exposed under direct heavy rain and slightly drenched in flood water.

Full review will be out by next week.

    i’d like to hear more about the screen pag may review na…may mga review kasi na nagsasabi na washed out yung colors compared sa Super AMOLED. at mas maganda raw yung camera ng HTC One, despite having lesser pixels..

    hirap mamili ng phone this year.. S4, HTC One, Xperia Z or Optimus G..i need a high end phone. :-)

      Dont Worry the next update on Z will have Screen Calibration, so you can adjust the contrast and saturation.

      I cant defend Z for now, habang di ko pa nkikita ang sample shots ng ZL, I expect some limitation on Z due to its Water/Dust Resistance

      nag aagree nga ang mga reviews na pangit ang viewing angles screen ng Z.. pero nasa user na yun.. kasi hindi mo naman titingnan ang screen mo at an angle di ba when using it… pwede mo isipin na “privacy filter” na rin yun.. heheheh… but it’s still a negative kasi nga other top model phones have great viewing angles… kung mid-tier model siguro pwede pa palagpasin…

      sa camera naman, the HTC One will have better low light shots.. pero pag outdoors na maliwanag, panalo pa rin yung ibang cams na hindi ultrapixel..

      ang kelangan i improve ng sony yung software updates.. dapat mabilis sila mag update ng software.. they need to emulate Samsung.. kahit S2 may jelly bean update..

    will get this one kung plastic pa rin c galaxy s4

    • iRonzkie23 says:

      hahahaha! Actually yan di nasa isip ko bro nun una pa.. kasi hinihintay ko lng lumabas ang Galaxy S4 which is bukas dahil kung plastic parin built nya kahit gaano ka ganda specs (kasi natuto na ako madaling bumaba ang presyo ng smartphone kpag built-in plastic)then final decision ko na ito Xperia Z as my first Android phone… Cheers to that! :D

    • niel says:

      yup plastic ang back cover ng S4
      MAS MAGANDA PA DESIGN & HARDWARE NG LG OPTIMUS SERIES COMPARE TO SAMSUNG PHONES…

    Ok lang naman yung screen niya…. Mas saturated talaga young color pag amoled ung screen…… For me ok lng naman sakin ung screen nang z d ko naman xha tinitingnan sa ibang angle while using it…… Kasi para sakin malaking plus points kapag waterproof ung phone… About sa camera maganda naman more details and less noise yong kuha….

    di ko pa rin nakita ng personal kaya di ko rin ma justified ang screen. cguro kasi pang “impress” effect lng ung viewing angle. kumbaga makita ng katabi mo kung gaano kalinaw at ka clear ng screen. hehe.. kc normally ung mga pangit na viewing angle ay resemblance ng “cheap” na LCD, kagaya ng mga china made na TV. (meron kami nyan sa bahay, ung LCD screen pag nkatingin ka sa gilid, ang pangit ng constrast at distorted ang color) cguro un parang bigdeal kc. check natin pag makabili na. hehe

    If Samsung will use aluminum, they may need to add their price on it though for sure, mas mura pa rin compared sa iphone. What Samsung has is their ability to utilize their smartphones with innovative features and being active with updates. Other people keeps on saying that it is made out of a crappy plastic but the heck, it doesn’t break easily and is pretty flexible as it is made of polycarbonate. Then what’s funny is… those that bought the aluminum phones covers it fully with casings that are mostly made with plastics… now who are the crappy ones?

    • iRonzkie says:

      Yeah…! That’s true bro, i wonder why people keep using plastic casing on there smartphones. esp. iphone nawawala tuloy and ganda nya, me i got 4S and im into naked coz im only use iShiel Screen Protector. Good thing hindi ako careless na tao dhil mas maganda parin tingnan lalo na pag Glass or Alluminum ang smartphone nka naked esp. iPhones… :)

      I love my Note2 just the way it is. Function is better than form, for me.

    • GalanT says:

      I’m a proud Note 2 owner as well. I just don’t understand these people who really goes for the design and yet… they fully cover it with a casing!? Then if you cover it with casing then it will be the same with a plastic made phone afterwards, right? Then once it happens, your aluminum phones looks old aged because it only has fewer software features and the one which has a plastic covered polycarbonate body but has a really rich features will be overwhelming. Oh well…

    haha.. for those who looks down on experia z dahil talo ng ibang phone pagdating sa specs ( LG fantards for example), try nyo nga gumawa ng parehas na sample video with your phone ng walang waterproof case or supot ng yelo… :p
