Sony's mobile series has yet gain the traction it's managed to garner overseas and the Xperia series is still building momentum. But for the adventurous type seeking a new Android experience, the Z is a perfect fit. The multiple ‘Best of CES’ winner boasts a bevy of high-powered specs such as a 1.5GHz quad-core, 2GB of RAM, and a marveling 13MP Exmor RS camera sensor that snaps gorgeous stills and video. What sets the Xperia Z apart from the competition is its dynamic software integration, offering the ability to kill background processing and apps when the screen is a sleep. Oh yeah, did we mention it’s water resistant and can be dropped as far as one meter deep in water? Try doing that with your Galaxy S4.
