The Xperia Z features a 5-inch Full HD (1080p) display which is almost a benchmark for all the flagship smartphones in 2013 and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of internal storage with a micro-SD card slot for storage expansion, which is quite a relief as more and more flagship devices now a days tend to miss out on an additional card slot (HTC One, anyone?).
