Sony Xperia Z4v is a totally amazing phone launched in June 2015, provisioned with a quite big 5.2-inches touch-screen, a high speed 2 GHz Octa-Core processor, and two cameras, a 20.7 MP back camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.

Sony made this cellphone in 2 different colors, black and white. This cellphone is much lighter than what you expect from a cellphone like this. This cellphone body design uses Glass and Metal. The Sony Xperia Z4v is a compact cellphone, given that it features a 5.2" screen and it's just 5.69" long. Being just 0.34 inches thick,the Sony Xperia Z4v is extremely slim and good-looking.

Sony equipped the Sony Xperia Z4v with an awesome 5.2" screen, and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K), making everything look perfect. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The Sony Xperia Z4v is powered by a high performance 2000 MHz Octa-Core CPU, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 chip and a huge 3 GB of RAM. Collaborating with graphic rendering, this device also has an Adreno 430 GPU running at 600 megahertz. A great point of this phone is its 32 GB inmense internal memory and an SD extension slot, more than enough to store lots of apps, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about running out of space.

This device has two cameras, a 20.7 megapixels back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera. this cellphone's back side camera lens has a f/2 aperture so it can take beautiful photos even in low lighting situations. It is capable of capturing 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps, and slow motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 60 fps. In addition, this device's camera also has a lot of amazing features like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, smile detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This phone provides Wi-Fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) high bandwidth internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a bit slower 4G technology) and 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies.

The Sony Xperia Z4v also includes a great numbre of interesting features like Wireless charging system, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (4.1) and GPS, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone has a 3000 mAh long lasting Li-Ion non-removable battery that provides the Sony Xperia Z4v an impressive battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose capacity, though with such a big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before it becomes a real problem.

The Sony Xperia Z4v is a little bit overvalued considering it is offerred for 249 dollars, while other similar cellphones are offerred cheaper than that. This device is definitely a good choice for you no matter if you are looking for a social phone, you love taking photos, are looking for a cellphone to play tons of games or need this device for work.
