Sony Xperia Z is Sony’s flagship device for early 2013. The device is dominated by a 5″ 1080p display, featuring an incredibly high pixel density of 441 ppi. In order to power such a screen, the device features a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, backed by the speedy Adreno 320 GPU. The Xperia Z also features 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot capable of taking up to 32 GB cards. The device not only packs high end specs, but is also water- and dust-resistant.
Once Xperia Z is rooted and bootloader is unlocked, user might want to try out the PACman custom ROM. PACman is a combination of Paranoid Android, AOKP and the CM ROMs. All the best features of these ROMs are combined into one PACman ROM.
