So we have been lucky enough to have hands on with the Sony Xperia Z at the weekend (more content coming soon) and there were a number of questions that had been asked so we attempt to answer them here.
Does it support 64GB MicroSDXC memory cards?
No, it takes only 32GB microSDHC. Yes, it does, but you have to format the card in the Z for it to read it. (Updated 21/2/13)
Does the device use Corning Gorilla Glass?
Sony does not specify the brand of toughened glass it uses. However the glass it does use has equivalent specifications to Gorilla Glass or Dragontail.
Does the screen washout?
The screen viewing angle’s were not as good in our opinion as some competing devices however it was certainly better than some screens.
Does it have an LED notification light?
Yes. Seemed to be enabled only for charging. Unless we missed it should be easy to notify for messages etc.
What MHL/HDTV cable does it use?
The same cable as was used on the original Samsung Galaxy S II and Note.
Does it have a lanyard strap/connector?
Does it support USB hosting?
Can you access the camera from the lock screen without entering a PIN code?
No, you have to enter the PIN unless you use the ‘Slide’ lock screen where there is a shortcut.
Is the device better in Black or White?
We had a black unit only so could not make comparison, but its personal opinion.
These answers are based on hands on with a pre-production Xperia Z and the answers to these questions may alter come launch in the UK.
