Sony Xperia XZ1 review


The Sony Xperia XZ1 offers excellent performance, Android 8.0 Oreo, and fun camera features.

Excellent performance ; IP68 water-resistant ; Latest Android 8.0 Oreo software ; Super slow motion video is fun

Aging design ; Expensive ; Camera output should be better

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is a good phone. It offers excellent performance and ships with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. While some of its camera features are little gimmicky, we did enjoy playing around with them, especially the Super Slo-mo. For the price,...

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: XZibit one


Sony was never a company to blindly follow trends, having its own approach to the mobile market. A fact perfectly illustrated by the company's latest flagship duo - the XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, which you only need to look at once to recognize the Xperia...

Sony Xperia XZ1


Sony's Xperia XZ1 is a powerful smartphone with a unique 3D-scanning camera that could earn it a following among 3D printing enthusiasts.

Powerful hardware. 3D-scanning camera. Lots of high-resolution audio technologies. First phone to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

Dated design. No fingerprint sensor for US customers.

Sony has long had a line of good-quality, premium-feeling phones that just haven't differentiated themselves because they're costly and not sold through US carriers. At $700, the XZ1 arguably falls into that mold with specs that are on par with the...

Sony's XZ1 and XZ1 Compact are all about the camera tricks


Both phones let you 3D scan your friend's face to set as your wallpaper or print into figurines.

Sony Xperia XZ1 Review


Sony takes pride in the fact that kando is at the root of its design philosophy – its products are not only meant to serve a practical purpose; they must also make one go "Wow!". Will the Sony Xperia XZ1 – Sony's latest Android flagship smartphone...

Solid, waterproof, classy design ; Fast and responsive UI ; HDR-capable display with good outdoor visibility ; Predictive Capture camera feature is nice having ; First with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box ; Can shoot dramatic 960fps videos

Stereo speakers not as good as expected ; No fingerprint scanner on the US model ; Camera lags behind competitors in low light ; Not sold on any US carrier

Xperia XZ1 Review: This Sony Phone Is Stuck in the Past


There's no Android flagship quite like Sony's latest, but in this case, that's not a particularly good thing. You must acknowledge the Xperia's processing prowess and Oreo support, but aside from that, the competition simply offers more.

Powerful processor ; Headphone jack ; Already offers Android 8.0 Oreo ; 3D Creator is fun

No fingerprint sensor in U.S. model ; Dated design ; Middling battery life compared to leading flagships

The Xperia XZ1 packs plenty of power and the latest version of Android, but this phone's bulky design, small battery and lack of a fingerprint sensor make it feel decidedly dated.

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: same ol' Sony


The Sony Xperia XZ1 has some interesting aspects going for it such as the 3D creator and Android Oreo out of the box but when you boil it all down it's just more of the same from Sony. Fans of Sony's design and hardware will enjoy the XZ1 but for...

Solid metal build quality ; Vibrant IPS LCD display ; 3D creator app works well ; MicroSD expansion ; Hi-Res audio support ; Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box ; Front-facing stereo speakers

Design looks outdated ; No fingerprint sensor in the U.S. ; Camera lacks dynamic range and is weak in low light ; Sony's UI skin doesn't mesh with Oreo

Review: Sony Xperia XZ1


The Sony Xperia XZ1 is one of the first smartphones to run Android 8 Oreo. It packs the latest processor and camera technology into Sony's age-old, metal-and-glass chassis. While some table-stakes features are aboard, others are missing. This uneven...

The Xperia XZ1 from Sony is a nice phone, but it falls well short of being a great phone. The build quality and materials are excellenmt, and yet Sony gimped the XZ1 with its dated design language. People want more screen than bezel on their phones...

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: a brilliant flash that soon fades


As the powerful and compact Xperia XZ1 Compact makes its return, Sony Mobile is also throwing the 5.2-inch Xperia XZ1 into the mix. Read this review of the Japanese manufacturer's latest smartphone to discover why Sony has introduced this smartphone...

Aluminium unibody design ; Impeccable performance ; Android Oreo ; Excellent audio experience

Problematic and not yet mature software ; Questionable screen quality ; Unreliable rear camera ; High price compared to the competition

I don't think there’s much more to add. The Sony Xperia XZ1 is a solid smartphone, with an elegant and formal design, but won’t satisfy everyone because it may appear to look out of date. It offers the performance of a true high-end smartphone, and the...

Sony Xperia XZ1


Sony Xperia XZ1 review, release date: Sony has unveiled the Xperia XZ1 with an HDR display, Android Oreo and a fancy 3D scanning camera. But is it good?

Smart, simple look ; High-end CPU ; Fast

Large for a 5.2in screen phone ; So-so battery life ; Much cheaper phones are as good ; 3D face scanning useless for most people

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is home to Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 835 processor. It’s one of the main upgrades over the Xperia XZ, which has a Snapdragon 820.
