Sony Xperia ZR on iprice Philippines : Phone That Walks On Water

The Sony Xperia ZR has all the right specs for a very discounted price tag, it’s one that will definitely get you excited! Aside from being waterproof which used to be a thing only in the more expensive market, the Xperia ZR also comes with a powerful chipset, Pixel Rich and Top notch front and back camera, cutting edge screen, and high capacity nonremovable battery. The basics are all here, and they’re magnified to their full potentials.

Solid Form Function

From the outside, you can instantly tell that this phone was built to last. It boasts a sleek design with a thinking frame, which is embellished my Sony Xperia’s signature look. Apparently, the Sony Xperia ZR is taking inspiration from Sony Xperia Z3 for its overall premium design, but only sporting a more petite size. It’s very obvious that Sony took the road of familiarity in order to appeal greatly to its target market.

Vivid Display

The Xperia ZR is equipped with a simple yet vivid IPS LCD HD screen with a 720 x 1080 pixels’ resolution. Pixels are invisible with its top-notch pixel density of 294 pixels per inch. Another set of features that are purely viewing pleasure driven are Sony’s Triluminous display technology and their Bravia – these enhance the screen’s contrast and colors with its cutting edge smart processing capability. Using this phone under the sun is no sweat at all because its sunlight legibility is very good when set at max brightness. Not only could it withstand the waters, its screen could also stay vivid in the midst of a sunny day.

Sharp Shooting Camera

The camera is very promising as it boasts 13MP for the rear facing camera and 5MP for the front. Its primary camera has auto focus feature, superior auto, and backlight correction (HDR). Sony Xperia ZR’s camera sports a set of features that are present in the Xperia Z3. With its IP68 certification coupled with a great camera, you will surely enjoy taking photos outdoors and even on water.
