In advance of a full review next week, the public  goes hands on with the waterproof Sony Xperia Z

Sony's Xperia Z is waterproof and dustproof

Submerge the Xperia Z for up to half an hour and it won’t be damaged; taking it out in a sandstorm and the dust won’t get in. The design may be minimalist chic but this is a phone that realises even careful consumers can sometimes be rough. It’s the first I’ve encountered that’s both this rugged and this stylish.

Nonetheless, at its heart the Xperia Z is just another Android phone – standing out against the excellent Samsung Galaxy SIII, LG’s Nexus 4, made in conjunction with Google itself, and HTC’s One X+ is a challenge.

It’s one that in the brief time I’ve spent with the Xperia Z, Sony seems more than ready to take on. Its 5” screen is as good if not better than any currently on the market elsewhere, its camera is a 13MP beast that takes superb images in low light and normal conditions. But with its big display and its rectangular shape, the Xperia Z feels like a particularly big device. If you’re used to the Apple iPhone, even in its latest incarnation, the difference is stark.

Perhaps most significant, however, is Sony’s bid to get users to engage with its content: recommending what you should watch from its vast library and allowing it to work as a remote control for your TV. If Sony can convince viewers, then the Xperia Z is a lot more than just a phone.

A full feview of the Xperia Z will follow in February.
