Apple iPhone 5S vs Sony Xperia Z1


Apple iPhone 5S and the Sony Xperia Z1 is a comparison meant to happen. With both the phones priced so close and flagships from Apple and Sony respectively, it is our duty to make you choose one. We will try to be unbiased.


Two of the best designed phones have never been so close. Apple iPhone 5S and Sony Xperia Z1, both shine out in smartphone design. The iPhone 5S is some brilliant cutting edge design that is simply mind blowing. The flat surfaces and smooth curves along with that aluminium built of highest quality just commands a lot. Sony Xpeira Z1 is also not far behind. Sony Xpeira Z1 has an all flat design and a premium glass built. Both of them are just stunningly but that aluminium built of the iPhone 5S wins this one. Design: Apple iPhone 5S.


We have two very different displays on these smartphones. Apple iPhone 5S comes with a 4 inch Retina Display, known for its perfection for detail and colour tone quality. Sony Xperia Z1 has a 5 inch full HD Display whose clarity is commendable. It really is a question of whether you would go for the larger display or the smaller one and would you like the perfection in colour or the flawless motion full HD offers.


Sony does not produce amazing enough cameras. Their flagship smartphone cameras have never blown away the market. Here on the Sony Xperia Z1, you get 20MP camera which takes some of the most amazing detailed photos but the colours are really over saturated. It does not perform that well under low light conditions on the other hand iPhone 5S smashes other smartphones in every other detail of a photo posing a threat to the well-known Nokia Lumia 1020. Also the True Tone flash is an innovation in itself. Apple iPhone 5S’s full HD video quality and Xperia Z1’s are both pretty close. Camera: Apple iPhone 5S.


If the Sony was a Samsung there would have been some thought process going into giving this one away. Sony unlike Samsung does not offer too many features that make your smartphone smart. Sony Xpeira Z1 works on the v4.4.2 KitKat (with upgrade) and uses their own UI that does not do anything too different. Apple iPhone 5S gives a finger print security scanner the TouchID which can authenticate your entry in the phone and to the App Store. iOS 7 is the cleanest, most optimized OS on mobile. Software: Apple iPhone 5S.


Apple iPhone 5S has the first 64 bit processor on a smartphone and Sony Xperia Z1 has the Snapdragon 800 a 2.2 GHz Quad Core beast. But certainly the Apple iPhone 5S is exponentially faster and there are not many apps which can tap that amount of power yet. Sony Xperia Z1 is fast phone too but not as fast. Both the phones work smooth for their given confi but Xperia starts throbbing with the external memory and is not that durable. Performance: Apple iPhone 5S.

Overall Winner: APPLE iPHONE 5s
