Sony Xperia XZ Premium


Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: Can super slow-motion footage make the Xperia XZ Premium stand out from other flagships?

Flagship performance ; High resolution display ; Decent speakers

Dated design ; Uncomfortable to hold ; Slow-motion feature video is limited

Sony Xperia XZ Premium hands on


The Xperia XZ Premium is the world's first 4K HDR phone. We've been hands on to find out if 4K on a smartphone finally makes sense.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: a proper flagship from Sony


Top-end specs, 4K screen, and super slow motion camera. Is this a flagship Sony can be proud of?

Sharp, colourful screen ; Solid build ; Fast

Massive horizontal bezels ; Expensive ; Camera poor in low light

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: 4K flagship has stacks of specs appeal


Ultimately, there is plenty to love about the Sony XZ Premium, especially if you're a Sony fan and you're into that flat-slab design. It's a flagship

Great 4K display with HDR technology ; Good battery life ; Super slow-motion feature is excellent ; Good overall software experience ; Waterproofing ; Cheaper than some other flagships

Design hasn't moved on much ; Camera isn't as good as competition ; Display doesn't manage well in super bright conditions ; Occasional lag in performance

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is every bit the flagship smartphone in terms of spec, but it doesn't bring the same wow factor as the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review


Sony's 4K smartphone boasts a pixel-packed display and a solid snapper

4K display is stunning ; Great camera ; Solid battery life

Design isn't the most premium ; Fiddly SIM tray ; Lack of 4K content lessens screen's impact

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has everything you want when paying top dollar for a phone, with its 4K display and slow motion camera two standout party pieces. It will please Sony fans around the world.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: Ultra slow-mo camera is fun but the design of this phone is flawed


A great smartphone but it isn't as good as the Samsung Galaxy S8

Very fast performance ; Doesn't smudge, despite glass front and back ; Love that 960fps slow-mo funtion

Dated design ; Sharp corners rip holes in your pockets

But with the Samsung Galaxy S8 now available for nearly £50 less, there is, unfortunately, nothing the Sony Xperia XZ Premium can muster to justify the higher price. If you really, desperately, have to have the ultra-slow-motion video recording, then...

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review


Sony likes doing world firsts and its new flagship phone for 2017 is no exception. Here's our review of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium with it's 4K HDR screen, Motion Eye camera and Snapdragon 835.

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.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Review: In Depth


Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: The Xperia XZ Premium continues the lineage started by 2015's Z5 Premium and Sony have brought their ‘A game'.

Class-leading display ; Exceptional camera ; Top-notch performance ; Smart battery technology

No one-handed mode ; Fingerprint magnet ; Expensive ; Heavy

For most people, the Xperia XZ Premium’s headline features are more party pieces than key reasons to buy it, but even without them, this is a truly solid top-tier flagship..

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: Smartphone 4K remains silly, but the phone itself is super


Sony is back with its 4K party trick, and it's only marginally less silly than it was in 2015

Let me pin my colours to the mast one more time, just in case I wasn’t clear before: a 4K screen on a phone is silly. It’s innovation for innovation’s sake, rather than practically useful. The human eye can’t tell the difference on such a small screen.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium


The Xperia XZ Premium is a smartphone brimming with features and potential. As a flagship phone, however, it lacks the nuance to be the best offering on the market.

Superb display; Solid camera; Nifty features; Powerful processor

Average design; Cluttered UI

Armed with a great display, feature-rich camera and powerful processor, the XZ Premium should be hands-down the best smartphone around at the moment right?
