Both the phones are great and make an impact in their own way. Stick to the iPhone 5 if you are keen on a smaller and lighter phone. But if you’re a fan of bulk, the Xperia Z is value for money.  It may seem like we’re sitting on the fence, but it’s not easy to choose between two of a kind; the iPhone 5 with its ease of use and the Xperia Z with its attention to detail. It boils down to a matter of personal preference.. Since this is the first Android phone to hit its mark and perhaps even cross it, the interest in this phone is really high. Our preference? Ah, we’re not influencing your decision!
