Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium is unworthy of its name

 

No matter how shiny you polish it up, this phone doesn't live up to its price and epithet

Bright, pixel-dense display ; Snappy performance ; Good battery life

Underwhelming camera ; Unergonomic design ; Display bezels are huge by 2017 standards

With its fancy mirror finish, eyebrow-raising price, and proud Sony pedigree, the Xperia XZ Premium flatters to deceive. On paper, it’s a behemoth, but in practice, it’s too much like the rest of the mainstream Android flagship pack. That’s been Sony’s...

Sony’s top phone has a best-in-class camera trick

 

The Xperia XZ Premium has the steak, but none of the sizzle.

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's Xperia XZ Premium has a 4K HDR screen, super slow-mo

 

Sony's Xperia XZ Premium shines, quite literally. The first thing you notice about the new phone is the mirror finish that gives the device a sparkly appearance. It seems destined to require lots of polishing.

Sony also announced the Xperia XZs, a follow-up to the barely six-month-old XZ. With the same 5.2-inch display as its predecessor, the new handset includes the XZ Premium’s Motion Eye camera system, 4GB RAM, and 64GB of storage. It will be available on...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Smartphone Review

 

Provider of new technologies. Sony's high-end smartphone, the Xperia XZ Premium, offers many innovative technologies in terms of sound and display (HDR), but its case seems a little out-of-date. Find out whether you really should not judge a book by...

nice-looking case made of glass and metal ; brilliant 4K HDR display ; good front camera ; nifty slow-motion videos ; compatible with high-resolution audio ; water and dust resistant ; up-to-date operating system ; 3.5 mm audio combo ; fast Wi-Fi ;...

pressure-sensitive front ; wide bezels ; main camera lacks sharpness ; super-slow-motion function has strong time limit ; a lot of bloatware ; Wi-Fi reception is only good close to the router ; GPS module a little slow ; mediocre and noisy call quality...

Oh Sony, how great it is that for the second time you have made a high-end smartphone with innovative technological features available. The Xperia XZ Premium impresses with high-resolution sound, noise cancelling with the appropriate headphones and a...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Review

 

With the XZ Premium, Sony promises unparalleled experience thanks to its revolutionary camera tech, excellent 5.5-inch 4K display and Qualcomm's latest silicon – the Snapdragon 835. Let's see if it delivers.

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

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: Fast and feature-rich, but the design needs a refresh

 

The Xperia XZ Premium is Sony's flagship handset for 2017, and it has a suitably premium price of £649 (inc. VAT). This is matched by the HTC U11 and LG G6 launch prices, and is a shade less expensive than the £689 Samsung Galaxy S8 .

4K-capable screen ; Super slow-motion 960fps video ; Good battery life ; Good sound quality ; MicroSD card support

Uninspiring design ; Some disappointing build materials ; Slow-motion video mode lacks flexibility

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: more than a one-trick pony?

 

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has the best slow-mo ever put on a smartphone, but is this why you should be buying the new flagship in the first place?

The Xperia XZ Premium is worth putting on your wishlist thanks to its sheer power and a fantastic camera experience that approaches (but doesn’t quite surpass) Samsung and Apple’s best. The slow-mo is an amazing innovation when you get it right, but...
