Sony Xperia XZ1

 

Sony Xperia XZ1 review, release date: Sony has unveiled the Xperia XZ1 with an HDR display, Android Oreo and a fancy 3D scanning camera. But is it good?

Smart, simple look ; High-end CPU ; Fast

Large for a 5.2in screen phone ; So-so battery life ; Much cheaper phones are as good ; 3D face scanning useless for most people

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is home to Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 835 processor. It’s one of the main upgrades over the Xperia XZ, which has a Snapdragon 820.

Sony Xperia XZ1 review

 

3D scanning smarts can't save this merely functional flagship

Brings HDR to Full HD for the first time ; Delivers performance you’d expect ; Android Oreo out of the box

Same design we’ve seen for years ; 3D scanning is a gimmick ; Camera has familiar processing issues

It’s clever, but 3D scanning tech alone does not make a killer phone. The XZ1 just feels like more of the same, and that’s not enough any more

Sony Xperia XZ1 preview: Classic design, upgraded hardware

 

Sony announced three new smartphones at consumer electronics show IFA, including two flagship devices that will "complement" the spec-stacked Xperia

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,...

Sony Xperia XZ1 review

 

Sony copies and pastes another flagship that's solid, if unspectacular

Dust- and water-resistant ; HDR display great for video ; First phone with Android 8 Oreo

Dated and bezel-heavy design ; Camera not as good as rivals ; High price, yet 'only' Full HD display

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is just as solid, and just as frustrating, as its recent predecessors. Sony has made another flagship smartphone that gets the core elements right – display, camera, battery, power – but none really excel.

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: Can 3D image scanning sell a mid-range smartphone?

 

Sony's Xperia XZ1 brings 3D image scanning to smartphones, but is it worth your cash?

Stunning display ; Performance as good as 2017's other flagships

Pricey ; Gimmicky 3D-scanning tech ; Mediocre battery life

And with the Galaxy S8 finally dipping below £550, the Xperia XZ1 is impossible to recommend. Should Sony’s latest take a nosedive in price in the near future, I might be more inclined to suggest it, but as it stands the Xperia XZ1 isn’t worth the...

Sony Xperia XZ1 Review: Media maestro and super-smart snapper combined

 

Sony's Xperia XZ1 brand-new flagship phone is a beautiful hybrid of last year's Xperia XZ & the super-powered XZ Premium. Here's our full review.

Gorgeous HDR screen ; All of the audio ; Flexible MotionEye camera ; Rugged

Bulky ; No one-handed help ; Average battery life

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...

Sony Xperia XZ1

 

Rather than launching a new flagship, Sony has created a cheaper version of the Xperia XZ Premium. Here we review the Sony Xperia XZ1 with its HDR screen, Snapdragon 835 processor and Super Slow Motion camera.

Sony's XZ1 and XZ1 Compact are all about the camera tricks

 

Both phones let you 3D scan your friend's face to set as your wallpaper or print into figurines.
