Premium yes, but competition is ahead

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from The Indian Express
There is no doubt that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a top notch. The camera ticks the right boxes, the overall UI and performance is not bad, though it could be smoother. However, this still has an outdated design and a display, which despite the 4K feature, looks old, and the heating problems haven’t gone away. Plus, the 960FPS video might not always live up to expectations. Sony Xperia XZ Premium might be one of the best bets from the company till now. The only problem: The competition seems to have gone ahead... Full review

A relatively small spec bump

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from NDTV

With the heating issues that plagued its predecessors out of the way, Sony's newest flagship is a legitimate competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is just as powerful, has an excellent display, is waterproof, has decent battery life, and offers a very good set of cameras. Its main weaknesses are its aesthetics and ergonomics, and the new Samsungs smoke the Xperia in this regard. We really hope to see a more modern design language in Sony’s next generation. The chrome finish might tempt some buyers but isn’t practical for real-world usage,... Full review

Budget Moto G5 rival phone

Sony Xperia L1

from Recombu
The Xperia L1 is your typical budget blower, offering some slick Sony styling for the £150 asking price. In some areas it lags behind rivals such as the Moto G5, especially when it comes to performance, while the camera tech isn’t quite as strong either. However, the capable screen, expandable storage and user-friendly interface combine for a satisfying everyday experience... Full review

A superphone with super slo-mo and a super blah look

The best smartphone Sony has to offer

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from Digit
To sum up, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the best Sony has to offer right now. It keeps up with competing flagships for the most part, with battery life being it’s real downfall. 4K resolution and 960 fps slo-mo video recording are gimmicks that some may like, but it’s tough to see practical implementation for those. The Xperia XZ Premium is a decent flagship smartphone for the Sony fan. It’s just not the smartphone we’d recommend over the Samsung Galaxy S8... Full review

Smartphone 4K is still a bit silly

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from Alphr

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. But unlike Sony’s last 4K smartphone outing, I don’t think this disqualifies it from consideration. It’s a marked improvement on the Xperia XZ in other areas, and at £650 it’s expensive, but comparable with other flagships offering similar performance. In other words, you’re no... Full review

Packing in top-notch hardware

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from Techgoondu
Costing S$1,098, the phone is priced like other flagships of established brands. There are unique camera features that Sony hopes will give it an edge. Still, as an avid still shooter, I find the camera features can be improved on. The biggest selling point for me is the XZ Premium’s screen and audio quality. They will delight users who like to catch their latest K-Drama or immerse themselves in a cocoon of good music on the go... Full review

Ultra slow-mo camera is fun but the design of this phone is flawed

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from Expert Reviews

Comparing flagship smartphones in 2017 is a task based on small margins. Every phone I’ve looked at this year has had its merits, and that holds true for the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. The screen is great, it’s fast, its camera superb – with that rather cool slow-motion feature – and it has a 3.5mm headphone jack. 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 may... Full review

Gets more right than ever before

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from Android Community
In many ways, I'm a huge fan of the Xperia XZ Premium. It isn't slick, small, light or ergonomic, but it isn't trying to be — Sony's hardware design is unique, beautiful and stands out from every other smartphone available today, and that's why I love it. Beyond the design, the Xperia XZ Premium gets a lot of the flagship features down: a really nice display, fast and consistent performance, and all of the right internal specs. The battery life, which is always a top feature for today's smartphone buyers, is top-of-the-pack... Full review

A solid smartphone in the lower price range

Sony Xperia E5

The Xperia E5 is a solid everyday companion of the lower price segment. However, the fancy glass design of higher-priced Xperia smartphones typical for Sony would have benefited the entry device as a unique feature... Full review

I HATE this phone!

Sony Xperia T3

Always getting error messages when going online. Storage space is far too small to handling more than 2 apps. Huge waste of money!

I hate it.

Sony Xperia Z3

Overheating makes the phone frozen constantly. Not existent warranty. I had Sony in great esteem until now. Total waste of money and effort to fix this phone.

Serious memory issues...

Ok, the music player is well specced, but my cheapo, entry level LG III, at half the price, which I bought the Sony to replace, runs rings round it in every other department... I gave the Sony to my partner, who uses it as a phone, which it's quite good at, and as a BBC Radio iPlayer handset, and while iPlayer seems to be one of the few apps that transfer to internal memory, it seems to store downloads on the phone memory, or both! So problems there too... Taught me to be more questioning about the internal set up of a phone, but will avoid Sony in future... Less

I finally decided to upgrade from my previous Xperia Arc due only to speed/storage issues. Being so happy with the previous Xperia, which I had for 3-1/2 years & took a beating, I decided to stick with this product line & got the Z3 Compact. In my first month, it fell out of my chest pocket while bending over at about 1'. The screen totally fractured & the phone is now useless. In searching Google, there are substantial reports of similar failures. This phone is far too fragile to last out your contract. This is nowhere near as robust as my previous. Less
I hate it kinds is slow maybe because of just 1 GB ram but over all happy with it . use a task killer and I only keep 2 process in the background that makes it little bit more faster... Over all happy with this $250 phone so I can use straight talk and get out of contract crap...
