Features of Xperia ZR:

Durable design: This device can be a perfect companion in and out of the water. Combined with a dedicated camera key, the waterproof capabilities let you shoot videos in Full HD, capturing the sharpest visuals. Xperia ZR also features Battery STAMINA mode, which improves the standby time by automatically shutting down battery draining apps.

Outstanding viewing experience: The super-sharp 4.6’’ HD reality display powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 uses the contrast enhancement technology from Sony’s range of BRAVIA TVs. Xperia ZR’s OptiContrast panel lessens reflections and provides clearer viewing, even in sunlight, and creates a flawless black surface when the phone is turned off.

Smart stereo Bluetooth headset: Complementing the Xperia ZR is the new smart stereo Bluetooth headset. The stereo Bluetooth Headset SBH50 is an advanced, app-enabled wireless headset built-in FM radio, OLED display and one-touch connection for wireless audio streaming.
