Sony Xperia XZ

 

The high-end Sony Xperia XZ treads familiar ground in phone design and hardware but places a strong focus on camera capabilities.

23-megapixel camera designed for improved low-light performance.

Not much different than the Xperia X Performance.

Sony Xperia XZ Review

 

Sony is on an aggressive schedule: while most other companies are launching their new flagship phones once in a year, Sony is updating its top-line Xperia phones much more often, with a new phone every six months or so.

Stylish design with good-looking and original color selection ; Water-proof ; Dual front-firing speakers ; Expandable storage

Counter-intuitive camera interface ; No fingerprint scanner in the US ; Colors on the display are not properly balanced, appear bluish ; Expected to ship with Android 6 in times when Android 7 Nougat phones enter the market

Frankly, we’re perplexed by the price of the Sony Xperia XZ: it's sold at a whopping $700 in the United States. We expect this price to quickly go down in the coming few months, but right now, it looks less competitive than the Samsung Galaxy S7 that...

Sony Xperia XZ review

 

Sony finally has its flagship X

New refined design ; Impressive camera improvements ; Return of waterproofing

Only full HD screen ; No fingerprint scanner in the US ; Not running Android 7 software

The Sony Xperia XZ is a great premium handset offering everything you'd expect from a flagship phone. If you own a recent Sony phone though it might not be enough of an improvement to rush out and buy it on day one.

Sony Xperia XZ review

 

Zed's not dead, baby

Typical Sony minimalism with better ergonomics ; Practically flawless performance ; Sony's UI still pleases (even without Nougat underneath)

Screen colours are overblown ; Very average speakers ; Camera doesn't live up to the specs

Low on bristling high-tech excitement, but when the also-rans are this good, you know you’re spoilt

Sony Xperia XZ Review: In Depth

 

Sony Xperia XZ Review: Sony's latest 2016 flagship phone is a beast, packing a sexed-up camera with new features inside a sleek, water-resistant body.

Dependable camera ; Smooth sailor ; Crisp, colourful visuals

Scratchy, hand-filling design

Sony’s Xperia XZ isn’t revolutionary, but it is a very good flagship that boasts some of the best mobile camera tech around. Media fans will enjoy the crisp, colourful screen and excellent audio support, while the solid battery life and performance...

Sony Xperia XZ – первый взгляд

 

Sony Xperia XZ, стекло и металл, новая дизайнерская концепция Loop Surface, USB Type-C, лазерный автофокус и ряд других особенностей камеры, цена и срок появления в продаже – обсудим новинку?

В продаже XZ появится уже в октябре – быстро. Смартфон получился очень интересным без всяких оговорок про «фанатов Sony» – фанаты Sony порадуются! Дизайн удачный, смартфон приятно взять в руку, радует и то, что нет параллелей ни с другими устройствами...

Sony Xperia XA review

 

Sony's phoning it in with this new mid-range Xperia

Looks like a million bucks, and feels premium too ; Plays nice with microSD cards ; Decent screen for the money

Moto G4 offers more for less money ; Underpowered performance ; Battery life woes

Good looks alone aren’t enough to make this the new champion of the cheap Android phones
