Building upon the rich history of Sony’s craftsmanship, Xperia ZR has been carefully crafted using only the most premium materials. Both the front and back are made of durable tempered glass, reflecting the world around you. The innovative one-piece aluminium frame is designed without breaks, creating a completely seamless expression. And following Sony’s unique design principles, this smartphone offers balance and symmetry in all directions, so no matter how you’re holding it the feeling is always the same.
Snap away underwater
With the waterproof Xperia ZR, you can take pictures while swimming in freshwater for up to 30 minutes. You can even dive up to 1.5 metres with it. Just remember that all the covers for the micro USB port, the micro SIM slot, the headphone jack and the memory card slot must be firmly closed.

OptiContrast and direct touch – less reflective, more responsive
We’ve eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast panel offers clearer viewing with less reflection – even in bright sunlight – as well as creating a seamless black surface when the phone is switched off. By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, we’ve managed to increase the responsiveness of the screen. So your touch is more effective and the experience on your Android smartphone is more intuitive.
HDR for photos and video – natural colors in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology that gives you clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.
Seamless and simple
Have you ever spent hours setting up connections between various gadgets in your home? Well, now those days are over. NFC (Near Field Communication) gives you a quick and easy way to wirelessly connect all your electronic devices with just one touch. See photos or videos from your smartphone on your TV. Or play music through a wireless speaker. No fiddling with cables, buttons or settings. Just pure entertainment – just so easy.
Make your life simpler by setting up how your smartphone behaves when it connects to other devices. Open your music player when you connect your headphones, organise your Sony Android SmartWatch, or activate your alarm clock when your phone touches the charging dock. Smart Connect is the software that lets you manage all your smart accessories.
