When Sony had launched the Xperia Z1 device, it wasn’t just a smartphone that the company had unleashed. Rather, it was one device that had a lot running on it. with the going increasingly getting tough in the digital age, what Sony needed is a blockbuster of a device that could turn its fortunes around. And the Xperia Z1 delivered on that count handsomely. The device has been launched as Sony’s flagship model and while the Z1 never turned out to be the best selling smartphone in the premium segment, it did sell in enough numbers to ensure Sony remained in the smartphone race. It has lot many features that does make it suitable to be termed the flagship model and also if it did not have that suffix, on its own terms the device is quite a blockbuster.
The device has a special credential to it being a waterproof set. This is not quite there in most other smartphones currently available in the market, something that makes it quite distinct. The camera that the Xperia Z1 sports also boasts of quite a few powerful and advanced features. Yet Sony has gone on to work on the camera and rolled out an update which adds more dazzle to the camera. The update is applicable to the rear facing camera of the device.
The update adds features like Sweep Panorama AR Effect, Burst Mode and Superior Auto to the camera. A photograph or rather two that provides the viewer with a comparison of the final product from the camera before the update and after the update brings to light the distinct differences of the two images. What the user would get after installing the update is a much clearer and sharper image. The color is more vibrant also and the contrast effects are just great.
The update has already started to reach user’s end. Further, users who have downloaded and installed the firmware update have not complained of any misgivings so far. As such, there shouldn’t be anything that should hold back those who own a Sony Xperia Z1 to try out the update on their smartphones. Not to mention the shutterbugs who take photography with their smartphones rather seriously.
