We tested Xperia ZR to make sure it can keep
going even after 30 minutes underwater,
making it super-durable no matter what kind
of adventures you’re subjecting it to. The high
IP55 and IP58 rating means you can use it in
the rain or take photos by the pool.
Since we can’t take every Android smartphone
outdoors, we bring the dust tests to our labs.
Before we gave Xperia ZR the dust-resistant
rating of IP5X, we hung it in a dust-test
chamber and made sure its operation was

Optimised imagery with HDR for photos and video
HDR for photos and videos captures natural colours in any light. HDR (High
Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology used to capture clear photos against
strong backlight. With HDR, the camera captures the same image at different
exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. Sony Xperia ZR
introduces HDR to video, so that you can film even in high contrast situations, like
in front of a window or with the sun behind your subject.

Processor & Battery
Lightning speed performance – Quad-core processor
We’ve matched the latest Sony software with the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 Pro
processor. This advanced quad core processor gives you maximum performance and speed
without draining your battery – run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with no loading
time, and stream videos without a break. The Snapdragon S4 Pro processor is asynchronous,
which means each core is powered up and down independently. So you get the precise amount
of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don’t.
