- Lanh Nguyen , Android Authority 

Sony's Xperia XZ1 once again offers lustworthy design and hardware quality that focuses on style rather than ergonomics and screen-to-body ratios, and it absolutely works.

Needs a design refresh

from Techgoondu

Much as I have loved the Xperia Z design over the years, it’s hard to recommend the Xperia XZ1 over other more compelling options today. It’s telling that Sony is looking to overhaul its phone designs after this latest batch.

Tech Advisor

A cheaper version of the Xperia XZ Premium

from Tech Advisor

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.

Worth taking a look at

from Fone Arena

Top of the line specs, great performance, Android Oreo, a good screen, oodles of connectivity options and hey, even a headphone jack. The Sony Xperia XZ1 is a very good phone that is unfortunately surrounded by greater competition.

The Indian Express

A polished experience, but still too cliche

from The Indian Express

Sony tried really hard to make the Xperia XZ1 standout from the crowd and its performance is generally good. It’s a well-made phone that feels good in the hand and has a good camera, if not the best, with long battery.

Impressive technologies built inside

from Digit

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is cheap by Sony’s standards. It also has some impressive technologies built inside, and is a fast smartphone. It just doesn’t feel like a phone that belongs in 2017. It can neither match up to flagship phones of today, nor does it make a good argument against “value” phones like the OnePlus 5. Android Oreo out of the box is really the only reason to buy this phone.

IT Pro

Still a top-class smartphone

from IT Pro

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.

Same ol’ Sony

from Android Authority

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.

PhoneArena

Solid, waterproof, classy design with snappy performance

from PhoneArena

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.

Phone Scoop

While some table-stakes features are aboard, others are missing

from Phone Scoop

The Xperia XZ1 from Sony is a nice phone, but it falls well short of being a great phone. The build quality and materials are excellenmt, and yet Sony gimped the XZ1 with its dated design language. People want more screen than bezel on their phones these days and the XZ1 doesn't cut it. The fact that this handset lacks a fingerprint reader also grates me to no end.
