Sony Xperia Z vs Z1 vs Galaxy S4 speed test


There are some excellent Android smartphone choices available at the moment and the Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship is a dominant force on the market. A couple of the Sony handsets this year that have also impressed are the Sony Xperia Z and the more recent Xperia Z1. Today we’re looking at some Sony Xperia Z vs. Z1 vs. Galaxy S4 speed tests.

These are all notable handsets that people may be thinking of purchasing over the coming weeks and months, and it’s always interesting to look at how they compare speed wise. With this in mind we have two YouTube videos to share with readers below this story that will give you an idea of how they fare in this respect.

The first is a 3-minute video showing the Sony Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z in a speed test and shows that both are running the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The video first looks at both devices booting down with the Z1 being a little faster. A boot-up test follows where again the Z1 has the edge on the Xperia Z, although it’s not really a significant amount of difference.

The second video below shows the Xperia Z1 running Android 4.2.2 in a speed test against the Samsung Galaxy S4 running the 4.3 version of Android. As in the first comparison the Xperia Z1 is quick to power down, beating the Sony Galaxy S4. In the booting-up test the Xperia Z1 is once more the victor.

Once you check out the videos we’d be interested in your thoughts on this. Would you have expected the Galaxy S4 running Android 4.3 to be quickest? Let us know with your comments.

    by the way on my own experience on the 2, xperia z is way better when it comes to the picture, yes the samsung makes a better display due to the amoled but if you are going to print the photos taken, xperia z would leave s4 behind. samsung amoled displays better due to the lightings, but xperia z display looks more refined and crisp. for me, sony phones are worthy to keep unlike samsung phones that are actually buy and sell stuffs.

    My wife and daughter both have Galaxy S4’s. I am less than impressed with it overall. I will certainly admit the camera is great! There I features on the Z1 that I find more appealing than those offered by Samsung. Both are good phones, but I think i’d rather go with a Z1 for my personal phone.
