Sony Xperia XZ1 review

 

The Sony Xperia XZ1 offers excellent performance, Android 8.0 Oreo, and fun camera features.

Excellent performance ; IP68 water-resistant ; Latest Android 8.0 Oreo software ; Super slow motion video is fun

Aging design ; Expensive ; Camera output should be better

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is a good phone. It offers excellent performance and ships with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. While some of its camera features are little gimmicky, we did enjoy playing around with them, especially the Super Slo-mo. For the price,...

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: XZibit one

 

Sony was never a company to blindly follow trends, having its own approach to the mobile market. A fact perfectly illustrated by the company's latest flagship duo - the XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, which you only need to look at once to recognize the Xperia...

Sony Xperia XZ1

 

Sony's Xperia XZ1 is a powerful smartphone with a unique 3D-scanning camera that could earn it a following among 3D printing enthusiasts.

Powerful hardware. 3D-scanning camera. Lots of high-resolution audio technologies. First phone to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

Dated design. No fingerprint sensor for US customers.

Sony has long had a line of good-quality, premium-feeling phones that just haven't differentiated themselves because they're costly and not sold through US carriers. At $700, the XZ1 arguably falls into that mold with specs that are on par with the...

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.

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: The most disappointing flagship of 2017

 

At its price point, the XZ1 manages to slot itself between 2017's flagships and the wannabe flagships in the Rs 30,000 range. But does it thrive here?

With the Sony Xperia XZ1, Sony has done the impossible: They’ve gone backwards in time. What you get is a phone with massive bezels, a great screen, a disappointing camera, sub-par battery life, great build quality, boring design and a premium price tag.

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...
