Sony Xperia XZs


The Sony Xperia XZs makes few significant hardware improvements over the original to warrant its high price.

Solid performance. Good camera. High-resolution audio and dual stereo speakers. Waterproof. Current Android software.

Expensive. Relatively low-resolution display. Fingerprint sensor not activated in US. Bulky design.

At $700, the Sony Xperia XZs is priced like a flagship. It offers great camera performance and solid battery life, but in most other regards it doesn't have the hardware to measure up to the competition. The processor hasn't been upgraded from last...

Super shiny and shoots in slow-mo


A shiny chrome body and a camera that captures video at 960 frames per second make the XZ Premium a compelling phone.

Sony Xperia XZs Review


Sony is dishing out flagships like there's no tomorrow. Last year, the Japanese company was probably the most prolific top-of-the-line manufacturer of them all. And this year, at MWC, Sony decided to update its flagship line once more. The result were...

Great camera performance in medium and good lighting conditions ; 960 fps slow-motion video ; Well-performing LCD screen

Camera struggles in low light ; No fingerprint scanner for the US model

The Xperia XZs could have benefited from some more improvement, but it's still an okay phone.

Sony Xperia XZs Review: The slow-motion champ - MySmartPrice


If you happen to be a '90s kid like me, it is highly probable that your love affair with mobile phones started out with a Nokia handset sometime in your late teens. In fact, I wouldn't be remiss to state that most of us now in our mid-20s and early 30s...

Sony Xperia XZs review


The Sony Xperia XZs takes most of what we know from its predecessor and makes some improvements, but the changes are so few and far between that it isn't worth Sony's asking price of $700.

Solid build quality ; Comfortable in-hand feel ; Clean software with Android Nougat ; 960 fps slow motion video ; MicroSD slot ; Hi-Res audio support ; Vibrant display

Front-facing speakers are weak ; High price point ; No fingerprint sensor (U.S. model)

Sony Xperia XZs hands-on review: a new formula for success?


We've pretty much become accustomed to regularly seeing a new Sony device released every six months. The company has now released an upgraded version of the Xperia XZ, the Xperia XZs , which was unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress. We were at...

Here, we can see that Sony has perfected its longstanding recipe for success in the smartphone market. The Xperia XZs is a marked improvement on the Xperia XZ, but it doesn't quite make the grade for it to be considered as the top device for the Sony...

Sony Xperia XZs review


A confused midrange phone with a time-stopping ability

Refined design ; Awesome super slo-mo feature

Too expensive ; Not futureproof in specs

Sony’s slo-mo focused phone impresses with its camera trick, but this phone is too expensive for being a mostly iterative experiment.

Sony Xperia XZs preview: Same design, new hardware


The Xperia XZs is one of four smartphones debuting at Mobile World Congress 2017 from Sony Mobile, succeeding the Xperia XZ that was announced six months

The Sony Xperia XZs isn't as exciting as the XZ Premium in terms of design or features, but it does bring last year's Xperia XZ up to scratch in terms of Sony's camera offering.
