You knew it was coming and since Sony is positioning the Xperia Z as their flagship phone, its only fair to compare it against the undisputed king of phones, the iPhone and specifically, the iPhone 5. It should be noted that I’m a big believer that bigger is not always better and that more RAM or megapixels does not translate into better quality and/or experience. However, intevitivality, when you create a competing device, the two will always be compared against each other based on their system specs. Bellow, you can find the specs of the iPhone 5 and the Xperia Z, including a small photo gallery with the two flagship phones, side by side.
However, if all you care about is screen size, look no further than the Xperia Z which comes in a 5-inch screen, versus the iPhones puny? 4-inch screen. Now I’ll leave that to you if you feel that its necessary to have a smartphone with a 5-inch display.
