Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 19 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Excellent build quality
  • Premium, handsome, elegant design - a little old-school but genuinely full of character
  • Water-proof
  • Brilliant, pixel-packed, class-leading 4K screen
  • Beautifully simple Xperia UI is a winner with a traditionally restrained approach to skinning Android - It's elegant, clean with added Sony goodies like Stamina mode and solid multimedia apps
  • Top-notch performance - Snapdragon 835 is Qualcomm's best, and the Xperia XZ Premium is among the most powerful smartphones today - the 1080p resolution when there is no native 4K content helps - and the phone runs cool even when you push it
  • Very good primary camera - one of the best, and comparable to other flagships - produces detailed photos, has improved corner sharpness, and very good colors, contrast, and dynamic range
  • The 960fps slow-mo HD video recording is pretty cool - but capturing the moment takes practice
  • The 13MP AF front facing camera is very good too - with plenty of detail, good dynamic range
  • Dedicated camera button comes in handy
  • Nice stereo loudspeakers
  • Solid battery life - easily lasts the day with regular use - although it lags behind the even better battery life of the Galaxy S8
  • On the whole, this is, by far, the best Sony flagship in years
What we didn't
  • Prone to collecting smudges easily, if used without a case
  • Although it is aesthetically designed, but when you hold it up against its all-metal-and-glass rivals, the chunky bezels and plastic sides look a little old-school, and dated
  • As there’s still only a handful movies and shows at 4K resolution, most of the time you won't be making full use of the stunning display - though when there is 4K content to watch - the video watching experience is incredible and unmatched by any other phone currently
