At long last, the Xperia Z is coming to the states. It was the most appealing phone at CES back in January, with its good looks and waterproofiness.

Last month, we tested the best smartphone cameras out there and declared the HTC One's ultrapixel camera the master of all. Now it's time to see how the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z measure up.
