Going into Mobile Photography with Sony Xperia Z1

Mobile phones have gone a long way since its started to become available to normal consumers way back in the 90's.  I used to own a Nokia 5110 as well as a 3210.  I even got business phones like the 8110 and 8210.  Mobile phones are not just phones anymore.  With the increase internet coverage comes new functionalities. Cameras started to be integrated into mobile phones and it opened a whole new world.  In conjunction with apps words like #selfie #foodporn #ootd etc. were invented. It is so amazing now how mobile photography has become an integral part of the daily lives of many people.  With sites like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus, you can practically take a pic and share it to the world instantly. With this development in mind, I realized that I needed a phone that could allow me to be more "connected" and more productive.  After months of agonizingly saying NO to some cool new phones, I finally gave in to Sony Xperia Z1.

Why did a pick a Sony? For one, it is one of the latest phones having the most advanced chipsets. Its fast and the Z1 optimally runs apps faster even than some laptops.  Second, it has 20.7 megapixel camera.  The image quality is quiet good for a mobile and so far, I have taken good images with it. Third, it's LTE capable.  With LTE, you can stay connected 24/7 (for fee, off course).  Connections are so fast you can upload those 2- 6MB photos in no time. Fourth, the Xperia Z1 is waterproof. It's useful for a guy like me who is quite active and I could be sweaty at times which could be a problem with other phones specially now when everything is almost touchscreen. Fifth, it has expandable memory.  Some phones have limited memories making you end up having less space for pics, apps, and videos. If ever I would use the 20MP mode, I would probably need the memory.  These are just 5 good reasons but there are more.  I have been using my Z1 for a week now and I know the possibilities are endless. I was even able to blog using my phone. I am now perpetually connected to Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and many more.  Plus I could even play apps like Candy Crush and the millions of Android games out there.  I will be posting mostly pictures captured via my Xperia Z1 in the coming days. I hope you will like it.
