Sony Xperia XZ Premium – Review
Source: The Techy English
Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a flagship smartphone that can give other flagships runs for its money when it comes to features. It is not one of the fancy looking smartphone due to its huge bezel, but the mirror finish and robust construction surely make it one of the premium smartphone you can get in today’s time. Impressive features like 4K HDR screen, super slow motion video support are exclusively available in Sony Xperia XZ Premium.

Let’s start with the obvious- the bling factor is quite high on the Xperia XZ Premium. It’s a massive phone that’s very shiny and will definitely get noticed. But here’s the thing- Sony makes no apologies for that. In fact, it makes a good selling point for the Xperia XZ as there is nothing else in the market quite like it. Add to that the top-of-the line specs and a good camera and you have a great phone that ticks all the right boxes.

Source: Tom's Guide English
The Xperia XZ Premium proves Sony is trying to push the boundaries of what a good Android phone can be. But future-proofing the display, camera and performance for innovation down the line doesn't do much good in the present. A 4K HDR smartphone with a super-slow-motion camera sounds so, so cool. In reality, like all the extra apps Sony puts on the XZ Premium, the device's marquee features feel more like window dressing than essentials.

Source: Good Gear Guide English
We’ve enjoyed using the XZ Premium a great deal and it’s certainly a worthy flagship Android phone. It’s a crowded market though with the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6, HTC U11, Huawei P10 Plus and even the new Blackberry KEYone vying for your attention. Many of those phones have also dropped in price since launch which means the late-launching Premium looks a bit expensive at $1,099 but we expect that to drop quickly too.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Review
Source: Yugatech English
Is the Xperia XZ Premium the best flagship for 2017? If you value performance, great camera, and attractive design, it could be the one for you. Sony stuck to the basics of a smartphone and focused on camera features to keep it on top. While the bezels are not exactly 2017 standards, the display makes up for everything. Perhaps what we can just say about the XZ Premium is that it wasn’t able to introduce us to something new except for the super slow-mo video novelty.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Review: The First 4K HDR Smartphone
Source: Paste English
The real problem with the Xperia XZ Premium isn’t the phone itself, it’s the competition that it stands against. When your pricetag is $799, you better be ready to compete against phones like the Galaxy S8, the iPhone 7, and even the LG G6. If Sony really wants to do something significant in the smartphone space, it’s time the Xperia line gets a reboot—and please, no more X’s and Z’s this time.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium will not be widely distributed on US carriers, which has been a thorn in the side of Sony’s presence in the States for a long time now. However, it is available for $799 on e-commerce channels for unlocked editions, and this includes places like Amazon and even Best Buy. For a 4K display, water resistance, a good camera, and even a dual-SIM slot, it’s a tad impressive that Sony keeps the XZ Premium competitively priced against the likes of current Samsung and LG flagships.

Sony chose to focus on being one of the first in Singapore to bring Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 chipset, improve on their camera mastery and that they achieved. Hopefully, the new experiences they bring to the table are enough to sway the fickle smartphone market towards the latest Xperia devices.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has been launched in India at a price of Rs 59,990. You can say that it is expensive, but, come to think of it: it ought to be expensive because it has all the goodies. And, it's safe to say that it is an excellent performer too, at the same time. Now Sony has always been in the habit of launching super-gimmicky phones that look fantastic but don't serve any real-world purpose. No wonder it hasn't been able to translate them into encouraging sales figures.

There is no doubt that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a top notch. The camera ticks the right boxes, the overall UI and performance is not bad, though it could be smoother. However, this still has an outdated design and a display, which despite the 4K feature, looks old, and the heating problems haven’t gone away. Plus, the 960FPS video might not always live up to expectations. Sony Xperia XZ Premium might be one of the best bets from the company till now. The only problem: The competition seems to have gone ahead.

At the time of writing this review, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is priced at Rs. 59,990, which seems a bit on the higher side considering that there's only a relatively small spec bump compared to the Xperia XZs. If Sony hopes to push good number of units off the shelf, then it needs to get more aggressive with pricing, as the Galaxy S8 would undoubtedly look more attractive to buyers.

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 display of any smartphone available. But it's held back by a bezel-heavy design that makes the phone look outdated and feel unwieldy compared with the sleek Samsung Galaxy S8. It's also missing a fingerprint sensor and won't work on Sprint or Verizon. And while the 4K HDR display is impressive, right now it feels a bit useless due to the paucity of content available. The Galaxy S8 offers largely similar features on all the main carriers for a few dollars less, making it out Editors' Choice. If you want to save some money, the upcoming OnePlus 5 looks like a promising alternative.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: $799 of lust ... and disappointment

The Xperia XZ Premium is the absolute top-of-the-line smartphone for the company, and therefore has a retail price of $799. Outside of a Galaxy S8+ or iPhone 7 Plus, people just don't often pay that kind of money for a phone. And they particularly don't pay that much for a phone that in the U.S. doesn't have a fingerprint sensor, and still sports a camera that doesn't get anywhere near the competition.

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, bright and vibrant, and shows off snaps taken by the impressive Motion Eye camera perfectly. The camera itself can handle almost anything you can throw at it, although performance does slip in low-lit conditions and the super slow-mo video mode takes some practice. If you’re looking for a gorgeous high-end smartphone with a huge focus on display and cameras with above average battery life, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a solid option.

Sony's new smartphone declares a challenge to most current flagship with the 'Premium' in its name. At its price, it will compete with the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+, LG G6, Google Pixel, and Google Pixel XL. As far as the price is concerned, the smartphone does not seem to fall short of its claims, as it does indeed offer top-of-the-line specifications and a premium body. In the meantime, companies like OnePlus and Xiaomi are gearing to launch Snapdragon 835-powered OnePlus 5 and Mi 6 respectively in the Indian market, only to make the competition among high-end smartphones more fierce.

Qualcomm Adreno 540: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Slighly optimized architecture compared to the Adreno 530 but with higher clock speed due to the new 10 nm process. In the beginning of 2017 one of the fastest graphics cards for Android based smartphones. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
835: High-End SoC for smartphones that was introduced in early 2017 and manufactured in 10 nm LPE FinFET at Samsung. Integrates 4x Kryo 280 at 2.45 GHz (max) for performance and 4x Kryo 280 at 1.9 GHz (max) for efficiency. Furthermore offers an X16 LTE modem, ac-WiFi and a dual-channel 32-Bit 1866 MHz LPDDR4x memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Sony: Sony Corporation is a multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Japan. Sony is one of the leading manufacturers of electronics, video, communications, video game consoles, and information technology products for the consumer and professional markets. Its name is derived from sonus, the Latin word for sound. The company was founded 1946 with another name and renamed in 1958. Sony Corporation is the electronics business unit and the parent company of the Sony Group, which is engaged in business through its five operating segments—electronics, games, entertainment (motion pictures and music), financial services and other. Sony is a notebook manufacturer of medium size according international market shares.

From 2014, Sony has reduced the production of Vaio laptops and finally discontinued them. Sony is still present in the smartphone and tablet market, yet not among the Top 5 manufacturers.


82.63%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
