Sony Xperia XZ Premium New Flagship Phone Review

Written by

Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the new flagship phone for 2017 with no exception with its 4K HDR screen, Motion Eye camera and Snapdragon 835.

Premium and Comfortable Design

Like other Sony smartphones, the XZ Premium boasts a similar ‘Loop Surface’ design which aims to mimic a seamless tube of glass. The very rounded sides of the body feel comfortable in the palm of our hand and the metallic top and bottom further add to the premium look of the smartphone. We love the mirror style which makes the XZ Premium looks absolutely stunning and luxurious. However, since it highly reflective so it can get grubby quite quickly too. Another good design is the power button and the fingerprint scanner which can easy to locate by touch and allow you to unlock your smartphone at the same time as you turn on the display. The XZ Premium also water resistant with IP68 rated like many previous Sony phones and it rival like iPhone 7. One thing surely better than iPhone 7 is the XZ Premium does include a 3.5mm headphone jack!

4K Resolution Display

One of the key features in the XZ Premium is the large 5.5in screen with a 4K resolution. So, it makes the XZ Premium is bigger than the standard XZ, but we think it worthy because the 4K display is gorgeous. Thanks to the Sony’s Triluminos display and X-Reality Engine technology which provide excellent bright and vibrant. With the resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (~807 ppi pixel density) it providing incredible detail that unmatched by most other high-end smartphones. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium also supports 4K HDR which provides better color, contrast, and detail like Sony’s Bravia and many modern TVs.

Pack of power

Inside the Xperia XZ Premium is the Snapdragon 835 alongside with 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 540 GPU. It makes a noticeable difference since the Snapdragon 835 uses a 10nm process which offers better performance while consuming less power when compared to the previous generation. The XZ Premium is extremely fast, very smooth and responsive in use. We don’t find any lagging issue when we opening or switching between apps. We can play heavy games and accessing the camera without a problem. It comes with 64GB internal storage as standard and Sony continues to offer a Micro-SD card slot so you can add up to 256GB of additional storage.

Improvements to battery life

There’s also noticeable in battery life, as the XZ Premium can last all day with standard use during our testing, including basic tasks like a phone call, texting, social media, browsing, taking photos and playing games.

Comfortable photo-taking experience

If you familiar with a digital camera you will love this features. The XZ Premium features a dedicated camera button that performs in a similar way to that of a digital camera. This means that you can half-press the button to focus before taking the photo, providing a more natural and comfortable photo-taking experience than most other high-end smartphones.
The resolution at the rear-facing camera has dropped to 19Mp, but it comes with interesting innovations here in what it calls the ‘Motion Eye’ camera. Motion Eye generally produces incredibly detailed images and videos alongside with LED flash, predictive phase detection, and laser autofocus. The front camera remains at 13Mp with an f/2 aperture and 22mm wide-angle lens for great selfie shots and video calls. Images taken are crisp and clear with nice detailed.
