There are only 18 days to go until Christmas so for those of you still struggling for the the perfect gift idea, here’s the breakdown of Sony’s top products of the year.
Snap fantastic photos even when you’re underwater with the best camera available in an Android smartphone. Sony’s flagship Xperia Z1 combines blazing performance and speed in a precision crafted handset. With a camera developed by Sony’s digital imaging team, independent tests have shown that Xperia Z1 offers the best overall image quality of any smartphone – a fact backed by glowing top-rated reviews.
Xperia Z1’s screen technology was developed by the creators of Sony’s BRAVIA TVs and the phone is packed full of content from Sony Entertainment. To top it off, the phone is both dust resistant and waterproof (IP55/58) meaning you can confidently take pictures in the swimming pool or even in the snow.
Xperia Tablet Z

Voted ‘Best European Tablet of the Year,’ Xperia Tablet Z offers premium technology and design and is developed by the same people who created Sony’s BRAVIA TV range.
Xperia Tablet Z brings HDTV viewing standards to tablet size. And that’s not all. Xperia Tablet Z is waterproof with an IP rating of IP55/IP58, meaning you can even watch your favourite shows in the bath.
