Sony Xperia Z1 vs. LG G2 vs. Samsung Galaxy S4: Downtown showdown

The high-end smartphone spectrum has never been this charming, as we have the freshly announced Sony Xperia Z1 rivaling the newborn LG G2 and the still hot Samsung Galaxy S4. Each of them is nothing short of a powerhouse and each of them has enough charisma to charm the birds out of the trees.

In fact, it’s the Sony Xperia Z1 that will capture them best while doing so. With its 20.7MP G Lens camera with Exmor RS sensor and an updated 5″ full HD Triluminos display with the X-Reality display engine it is the replacement the Xperia Z deserved to get. The same can be easily said for the other two rivals as well – the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 are both the high-tech pinnacles of their respective makers.

However, neither of the two is as good looking as the Xperia Z1. Sony is betting safe on its critically acclaimed glass and aluminum combo that won the hearts and watered the eyes of million with its beauty. On top of that, it waives an IP58 certification, meaning you can go swimming with it for real.
