Sony Xperia Z vs. Apple iPhone 5

Announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last month, the Sony Xperia Z is the company's new flagship Android phone for 2013. Unlike most previous Sony smartphones, there appears to be a genuine buzz about this device. It features a 5in full HD 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera and is both water and dust-resistant.

The Xperia Z is very much a high-end smartphone, so it will be competing firmly against the market leader, Apple's iPhone 5. How will it stack up? Let's find out.
