Sony Xperia Z vs HTC One


Sony came up with this brilliant water resistant and dust proof flagship phone- Sony Xperia Z. It delivered in many ways. It surely got stunning looks and great power. The HTC One has been a jaw dropping model in the HTC smartphone line with the complete change in philosophy of built quality. In many ways they are similar but when we dig deeper, it becomes clearer as to which is the better smartphone. Sony Xperia Z vs HTC One, here it is.


Both these phones will blow your socks off with their built quality. Sony Xperia Z has a full 0 gap glass casing compared to the aluminium body on the HTC One. HTC One with a nice edge to edge curved back fits better in the hands. Sony Xperia Z is really flat, and with such a big smartphone a perfect rectangular shape does not help. HTC also has the best speakers on board with built in amplifiers courtesy Beats Audio. Sony has enabled a water resistant design which is also dust proof. This is just amazing. Yet, Design- HTC One.


HTC One as well as Sony Xperia Z feature a full HD 1080p display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. HTC One is 4.7 inches compared to 5.0 inches on Sony Xperia Z. Hence, this makes the display on the HTC One marginally denser than Sony Xperia Z. Even though Sony brags about their BRAVIA Engine for picture streaming, HTC One does a far better jog at displaying full HD content and the graphics look but better on HTC One. HTC One also has much better viewing angles thanks to highly reflective glass on the Sony Xperia Z. Display- HTC One.


I won’t try to explain much here but HTC One clearly has a way better camera. With a larger sensor and Ultrapixel technology, it enables more light to fall on the pixels and amount to a better overall photograph. HTC One’s photos are really understaurated but Xperia Z does a good work at slashing colour on the pictures. On the low light forte, HTC One thrashes the Xperia Z easily. HTC One also does a far better job at full HD video recording. HTC One has a 4MP sensor and Sony Xperia Z comes with a 13.1MP sensor. Obviously the number did not matter. Camera- HTC One.


HTC One and Sony Xperia Z both have the Android v4.2.2 jelly bean. But, HTC One offers much more with software. The Sense v5.0 UI offers you an amazing camera UI- HTC Zoe which is more than just useful for so many things. It also has HTC Blinkfeed that keeps you updated on the latest things from your apps installed. It is just better as UI than what you see on Xperia Z. Software- HTC One.


Sony Xperia Z has a tad slower processor with Quad Core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon against a way better optimized and faster Quad Core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600. Both come with 2GB RAM but HTC One can do everything faster than the Xperia Z. They both come with NFC and latest Bluetooth technology. What HTC One does not have is option for expandable memory.
