There is a glass front and back which is scratch resistant, Another key difference is you've got a physical camera button in the bottom right hand corner.

The 20.7 megapixel camera is astounding compared to that of the Xperia Z and most other flagships on the market, that means that it's a Very Very good product, one of the best if not the better android phones out there.
It has a whole load of shooting modes including superior alter which will make all the decisions for you. You've also got AR affects which is going to throw cool reality effects like dinosaurs and some other effects in your scene, its a lot of fun keeping you entertained for hours.
The full HD video is also pretty great on the noise handling Detail front so all in all the camera experience is pretty much one of the best out there.
Unfortunately, the screen really lets it down. the washed out viewing angles when you're watching movies just dampen the experience and it's not quite as enjoyable reading ebooks on it, for example, as it would be on an LG G2 or an HTC One.
Concerning the the waterproofing. We didn't mention it when it came to the design, but this cell phone is waterproof and dust resistant, so it's gonna offer something that none of the other smartphone flagships can.
The 3000mAh battery as well meaning that the Xperia Z poor battery life is a thing of the past, the Z1 will easily last you a full day and you wont even have to turn on power stamina mode and if you do you may get day and a half to two days out of it, which is pretty impressive stuff.
