Last week we reported that the Sony Xperia Z1S announced at CES 2014 was up for grabs exclusively from T-Mobile. Nothing changed in that matter since then, except for the fact, that now the phone is in stock in the carrier’s brick and mortar locations in addition to online store. You have two choices if you want to be an owner of the Xperia Z1S. One, you can pay off the phone in 24 monthly installments of $22 each with no upfront payment. Two, you can pay full retail price at once, in which case it will cost you $528.

Whichever payment method you choose, you will get the same premium smartphone with top-end hardware and software features. The Sony Xperia Z1S is actually a slightly tweaked version of the Xperia Z1, only with carrier-specific apps and services on board and a plastic body in place of the aluminum frame.
Key specs of the phone include a 5-inch 1080p display, 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, waterproof capability, 32 GB of expandable memory, 3000 mAh battery and a variety of connectivity features, such as 4G LTE support, MHL, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS navigation and Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi calling as a standard.
As company did with other phones, Sony kept its focus on camera experience. The Xperia Z1S is equipped with a large 20.3-megapixel camera with Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, Sony’s G Lens, and intelligent BIONZ.
Five camera apps are pre-loaded on the devices. For example Info-eye scans objects and searches the web for information about them. Augmented Reality lets you add objects such as costumes or flowers to your photos. Background Defocus, on the other hand, helps you adjust the depth of field. Other camera apps include Social Live and Timeshift Burst. The Sony Xperia Z1S runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
