The highest level of water resistance in a smartphone**Smart, sleek & durable
No one knows how to best pack durability into a beautiful design like Sony. The slim 7.9 mm body, with its reflective glass surface, looks and feels slick, but Xperia Z is crafted to be water-resistant, dust-resistant and tough enough to handle whatever life has planned.
- **As of 4th of february 2013, outside of Japan there are no smartphones with a waterproof rating higher than the Sony Xperia Z. For more information on Strategy analytics results, click here.
How can we be certain? In order to get the high IP55 & IP57 rating, we submerge Xperia Z under water for 30 minutes - and make sure it's good as new when it comes out. It's also resistant to water jets!Tough as metal
How solid does a precision engineered smartphone need to be? How about as solid as a car? Xperia Z's frame is made from glass fibre polyamide, the same material that's used as a metal substitute in automobile parts.Durable glass
The durable tempered glass on front and back is a lot stronger than conventional glass. And with anti-shatter film on the front and back, Xperia Z is anything but fragile.Dust-resistant
Since we can't take every Android smartphone outdoors, we bring the dust tests to our labs. Before we label Xperia Z dust-resistant, we hang it in a dust-test chamber and make sure its operation is unaffected.OmniBalance design
The design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. Xperia Z has beautiful rounded edges and smooth, reflective surfaces on all sides, which are held together by an innovative skeleton frame.One touch to entertainment

With Battery STAMINA Mode you have more intelligent battery management and can easily improve your standby time by four times or more*. Your phone knows when you're screen is off and shuts down the battery-draining apps you don't need, then starts them up again when the screen is back on.
- * Based on testing done with default settings, default accounts and applications for Skype™ and Twitter downloaded to the phone. The more applications installed, the bigger the effect of Battery STAMINA Mode.
