Reviews for the Sony Xperia XZ1

70% Sony Xperia XZ1 review
Source: PC Advisor English
There's no single flaw in the Sony Xperia XZ1 and while it has some decent specs including good audio features and a good camera, it struggles to stand out in a busy market. Phones like the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 make this newer phone look dated and devices like the OnePlus 5 are better at a lower price point.

60% Sony Xperia XZ1 review: Can 3D image scanning sell a mid-range smartphone?
Source: It Pro English
Sony's Xperia XZ1 is an impressive mid-range handset. Aside from the 3D-imaging gimmicks, the XZ1 is still a top-class smartphone, with bang-up-to-date internals; a bright, clear display; and a design befitting of 2017's other swish-looking handsets. But you can't escape its towering price tag.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 comes with a price tag of Rs 44,990. The smartphone packs an impressive design and all the high-end specifications which a flagship should have. It has the latest processor and operating system but it still lacks some of the things. For instance, it doesn't come with a dual rear camera setup and the battery capacity is also quite less when compared to its competitors. If you are a Sony fan then you can definitely go for the Xperia XZ1. However, those looking for alternatives can consider buying the OnePlus 5 or the recently launched Nokia 8.

80% Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact review: A safe bet for flagship chasers
Source: Hardware Zone English
Of course, if a 4.6-inch display is too small to your liking, then the XZ1 Compact doesn't stand a chance. If you’re not a size queen, the XZ1 Compact is easily Sony’s most ambitious attempt thus far – after all, it’s not about the size, but how you use it. If you like small flagship phones with modern specs and features, it’s your best bet.

Source: Android Authority English
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 everyone else, there are plenty of better options available.

60% Test du Sony Xperia XZ1 : du vieux avec du neuf
Source: Phone Arena English
Le Sony Xperia XZ1 est commercialisé depuis le 5 octobre 2017 au prix de 699 euros. Un prix très élevé au regard de ce que propose ce smartphone. Il est certes très performant et affiche des caractéristiques techniques haut de gamme, mais c’est bien insuffisant pour le prix demandé. Comme l’iPhone 8, le XZ1 est une énième itération d’un modèle à bout de souffle, complètement hors du temps. Son ratio taille/écran est aussi ridicule que celui de l’iPhone 8 à une époque où tous les modèles haut de gamme se dirigent vers du borderless. La qualité photo décevante vient finir de nous dissuader de mettre la main au portefeuille.

Sony Xperia XZ1 Android Smartphone Review: Don’t Judge It By Its Cover
Source: Android Headlines English
It may not be the greatest display in the world, but it’s still nice to have smaller phones with HDR capable screens that deliver excellent video viewing on supported platforms; support that extends to the most important players on the field too. US buyers will likely not be happy with the lack of fingerprint scanning once again though, and while the price is certainly reasonable for what you get at this point in 2017, it’s extremely difficult to recommend this to anyone in the US simply because of that massive security oversight. Buyers in Europe and elsewhere worldwide should seriously consider the phone as a viable alternative to the rest of the 2017 flagship pack though, as it’s one of the most solid experiences one can buy.

All in all, you won’t be making heads turn in envy with the Xperia XZ1, but if you’re looking for a phone with a traditional approach to design, if those flashy but fragile all-display handsets aren’t your cup of tea, then the latest Sony flagship is worth checking out.

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: Solid, opinionated, and lovably flawed
Source: Android Central English
Once again, Sony has made a phone that appeals to your heart rather than your brain. Looking at it, holding it in your hands and using it every day, you'll love so many aspects of the Xperia XZ1. But then you realize what it costs and what you can get elsewhere ... and you may think better of that decision to spend $699 on this phone.

Sony Xperia XZ1 First Impressions: Finally, a true flagship from Sony?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To wrap up, Sony has tried hard this time to introduce some really interesting features with Xperia XZ1. The phone’s 3D Creator feature surely looks promising and the burst mode at 10fps is yet another a first in a smartphone. However, the design looks a tad similar to previous Xperia devices, but it scores well in most of the departments, especially, if you consider Rs 44,990 price tag.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 ticks quite a few right boxes, even if its upgrades are mostly incremental. The improved design, HDR screen, and performance make the XZ1 competitive if not quite class-leading. Sony fans will probably appreciate having the best form XZs and XZ Premium in one device, and those looking to try Oreo now have another option besides Nexus and Pixel phones.

Sony’s Xperia XZ1 is one of the best phones around right now for demanding media fans and anyone after a world-class camera that slips into their pocket with ease. While this flagship may lack the gorgeous and innovative design work of Samsung’s premium devices, it’s still a good-looking and distinctive smartphone with a tough-as-nails build.

The Sony naming system continues to baffle but our first impressions of the Xperia XZ1 are mixed. On the one hand, it's a solid phone with decent specs and could suit those unable to afford flagship level. However, there's little to get excited about here so it may struggle to stand out. We're more keen on the XZ1 Compact which should be cheaper.

Sony doesn't really need to fight Samsung or Apple. It just needs a niche. Tying the XZ1 lineup to the current trend toward 3D printing and scanning might be just that. While the XZ1 is competitive with Samsung and Apple's prices, Sony's difficulty will come with distribution and availability in a market where we prefer to buy phones from our carriers. Check back for a full review closer to the phone's release on September 19.

Sony Xperia XZ1 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Since we are getting into some comparisons here, we should note that the XZ1 is intended as a direct descendant to the original XZ, even though its specs sheet and camera setup put it a lot closer to the XZ Premium. On certain markets, the XZs fits in somewhere in this comparison as well, but regardless, the main parallel should be between the XZ and the XZ1.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 refines the design of the Xperia XZ and XZs to deliver a more seamless finish that's not only nice enough to look at, but nice and solid to hold too. The design isn't as exciting as some of the rival flagship smartphones out there, but for Sony fans, it stays true to the form many have come to know and love.

Sony XZ1 and XZ1 Compact Quick Review: Can High-end Camera Tricks Convince You To Buy Them?
Source: Unbox English
Sony has officially taken the wraps off of two new phones here in IFA, Berlin. Both the XZ1 and the XZ1 Compact feel like toned-down versions of Sony’s newest flagship smartphone, sporting similar hardware and camera tricks sans the 4K display. Unfortunately, the two phones don’t stray away from Sony’s established (read: dated) OmniBalance design technology, and at $700, faces stiff competition from devices launched earlier this year.

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.

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.


79.6%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
