At the latest CES 2013 event held in Las Vegas, Sony has finally unveiled its latest iteration of the Xperia tablet, labeled the Xperia Z. Of course, Sony, being Sony would not shy away from bringing every nugget of tech into the heart of the Z, and the preliminary views of the 5 inch tablet are grossly strong. It remains to be seen how this tablet stands in the face of the new Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple iPhone 5S onslaught.
iPhone 5S vs Sony Xperia Z vs Galaxy S4 display: At the present time, the on papers figures are indeed strong. The new tablet boasts of a brand new 5 inch HD display that has native full HD support and Sony’s tried and tested mobile Bravia Engine to fuel the high resolution scree. It looks better than the iPhone 5S. However, it is rumored that the iPhone 6 will have a bigger 4.8 inch screen and this was the biggest complaint with the iPhone 5S’ 4 inch screen. Also, it is rumored that the new S4 will also sport the brand new 5 inch display with a native resolution of 440ppi. These are serious numbers.

In terms of storage space the iPhone 5S and the Galaxy S4 could both make the Xperia feel like an embarrassed Spartan. This is because the Z is reportedly going to feature only 16 GB of internal storage while the new iPhone 5S would be pumping up the numbers to 128 GB. The Galaxy S4 is not far behind, with a 64GB internal storage and further options to expand.
iPhone 5S vs Sony Xperia Z vs Galaxy S4 camera:
Stiff competition here too. The Sony Xperia Z will reportedly feature a 13mp super HD camera while the Samsung Galaxy S4 will also have the same numbers. Also, the iPhone 6 will not be far behind either, and Apple will reportedly use the super HD camera on the latest iteration. We do not have confirmed reports about the optics used in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but word has it that it will share the S4’s camera too.
iPhone 5S vs Sony Xperia Z vs Galaxy S4 Operating System (OS):
Both Samsung and Apple have strong plans to upgrade to the next Operating System, with the iOS 6 for the iPhone and the Android 5.0 for the Galaxy. This means that it will be much better than the previous version that was the Jelly Bean. This clearly outmatches the Android 4.1 present in the Sony Xperia Z tablet, and Sony can be in trouble if it does not upgrade its OS to the version 5 that its competition has.
