For clearer, sharper pictures
From low-resolution videos to high-resolution movies-with Sony's latest picture engine, X-Reality for mobile, everything you see on your display is analysed and selectively processed to give clean, clear and lifelike pictures.

Pixel reproduction adds new life
Sony's unique Super Resolution processing breathes new life into everything you see. This technology examines each pixel in an image and reproduces the ones that are lacking, giving you the sharpest images.
(1) Pixel reproduction:
Sony's unique Super resolution technology analyses each pixel in an image and reproduces the ones that are lacking, giving you the sharpest images.
(2) Texture and outline improvement:
By selectively enhancing elements that help to render the texture and sharpen the outlines, images become clearer and crisper.
(3) Colour and contrast enhancement:
The Intelligent Image Enhancer reproduces the vividness of the image in its original colour. Pictures are selectively optimised by enhancing the contrast, making images look more detailed and true to life.
(4) Noise reduction:
Intelligent Noise Reduction decreases noise which can sometimes occur in high-motion scenes or footage shot in low-light conditions. As a result, images become clearer and smoother.
More pixels per inch
Razor sharp and super bright
This Full HD display features an impressive 441 pixels per inch. All those pixels combined give you a level of clarity that makes whatever you look at all the more real. The result? Razor sharp text and super crisp images, and an incredibly vivid viewing experience.
Thw OptiContrast panel makes for less reflection and clearer viewing
Less reflective, more responsive - OptiContrast & Direct Touch
We've eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast panel makes for less reflection and clearer viewing-even in bright sunlight, as well as creating a seamlessly black surface when the phone is turned off. By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, we've managed to increase the responsiveness of the screen. So your touch is more effective and the experience on your Android smartphone is more intuitive.

Processor and battery
Blazing fast performance
The world's fastest smartphone processor
We've matched the latest Sony software with the all new, super powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. This advanced Quad-core processor is 75% faster than S4 Pro and gives you maximum power and speed with outstanding battery time-run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with little loading time, and stream videos without a break. The Snapdragon 800 processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don't.
Delivering up to 50% increased graphic performance, the updated Adreno 330 GPU (graphics processing unit) gives you the most advanced and visually stunning 3D games, and lets you browse the web lightning fast - all while using the lowest power consumption.
Always loud and clear-HD Voice
HD voiceeliminates background noise to improve voice clarity. That means that you can talk normally and be heard clearly, without having to raise your voice, even in noisy environments. Now you don't have to shout to be heard, or try to find a quiet place for your conversation.
Ultra-fast LTE/4G technology
Your Xperia smartphone has a built-in LTE/4G modem. This enables blazing internet connections with up to 100 Mbit/s download and 50 MBit/s upload speeds.
Significantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA Mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you're not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your phone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognises when you're not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don't need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
Get only the important notices
With Battery STAMINA Mode, Wi-Fi and data traffic are disabled during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts, and alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily customise which apps you want to receive push notifications from even in standby mode. Facebook notifications on or off? It's up to you.
