Sony Xperia XZ Premium (2017) review


Sony's XZ Premium flagship has just about everything you could ask for from a top-end phone. A 4K display, insanely powerful processor and a unique super-slow motion camera all make this handset great.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium's awesome screen, supercharged processor and unique slow-motion video mode rightly earn this phone its premium name.

This is the same design premium Sony phones have used for years and it's starting to feel old and boring. The limited camera interface makes the phone feel crude. The fingerprint reader is turned off in the US.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a powerhouse of a phone, but it's looking tired against today's rivals, making it tough to justify the cost.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium


The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a powerful unlocked phone that combines a vivid 4K HDR display with the latest Snapdragon processor and strong audio capabilities, but falls short in other areas.

Crisp 4K HDR display. Powerful Snapdragon 835 processor. High-resolution audio. Waterproof. Current software.

Poor battery life. Fingerprint sensor not activated in US. Limited 4K HDR content. Bulky design.

At $800, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is one of the costliest flagship phones you can buy. In terms of hardware, it matches most of its rivals with smooth, fast performance, excellent camera quality, and high-resolution audio. It also has the sharpest...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Review


Sony has been among the more prolific smartphone manufacturers over the past few years. Throughout 2016, the Japanese manufacturer unveiled seven new smartphones, and at MWC this year, it introduced four more handsets. The top device in the latter...

Excellent 4K display ; Snapdragon 835 SoC ; 960 fps super slow-motion video

Fingerprint magnet ; Super slow-motion can be hard to time right ; Cumbersome camera UI

The Xperia XZ Premium is a very good phone. We can't really complain from lack of power, design or camera performance. However, at the end of the day, it has very solid competition to beat. Other manufacturers are betting on new aspect ratios, smaller...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review


The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a premium-spec version of the XZ, with a 4K HDR screen, a next-gen processor, enhanced camera, more memory and a bigger battery. It's a beauty for sure, and not over-priced, but may be too big for some users.

The XZ Premium is a significant upgrade to the XZ, which was already a worthy flagship phone. While the larger footprint and relatively heavy build won't suit everyone, if you like your phones big, this is a superb option. The design shouts quality,...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium hands-on: the 4K smartphone with Snapdragon 835


Many people are loyal fans of the Sony brand, not just for their smartphones, but for their televisions, displays and image processors and sensors for cameras of all types. The new Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the essence of each of Sony's areas of focus....

There is no denying that the Xperia XZ Premium is what Sony itself calls "the best of Sony." It is very interesting to note that Sony is one of the companies that has not given much attention to VR technology for mobile devices (let's not forget the...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review


Sony's 4K smartphone boasts a pixel-packed display and a solid snapper

4K display is stunning ; Great camera ; Solid battery life

Design isn't the most premium ; Fiddly SIM tray ; Lack of 4K content lessens screen's impact

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has everything you want when paying top dollar for a phone, with its 4K display and slow motion camera two standout party pieces. It will please Sony fans around the world.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: a proper flagship from Sony


Top-end specs, 4K screen, and super slow motion camera. Is this a flagship Sony can be proud of?

Sharp, colourful screen ; Solid build ; Fast

Massive horizontal bezels ; Expensive ; Camera poor in low light

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: Ultra slow-mo camera is fun but the design of this phone is flawed


A great smartphone but it isn't as good as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and is now more expensive

Very fast performance ; Doesn't smudge, despite glass front and back ; Love that 960fps slow-mo funtion

Dated design ; Sharp corners rip holes in your pockets

But with the Samsung Galaxy S8 now available for nearly £50 less, there is, unfortunately, nothing the Sony Xperia XZ Premium can muster to justify the higher price. If you really, desperately, have to have the ultra-slow-motion video recording, then...

Sony's new flagship phone has a 4K HDR screen and records at 960fps


Sony likes doing world firsts and its new flagship phone for 2017 is no exception. Here's our review of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium with it's 4K HDR screen, Motion Eye camera and Snapdragon 835.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a stunning smartphone, both in terms of design and performance. The mirror-like look isn’t for everyone due to the appearance of smudges, but it helps provide an elegant, high-end look. The 4K HDR display is one-of-a-kind,...
