Sony Xperia XZ Premium Review

Score: 79.8 / 100

Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a top-level phone released in 2017, equipped with a large 5.5 inches screen, an exceptional 2.45 gigahertz Octa-Core processor, a 19 megapixels back camera and a 13 MP front-facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this phone's specifications when we get into deeper details.

Sony decided to power this phone with a very fast Octa-Core CPU speeding at 2.45 GHz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 chip and a large 4 GB of RAM memory. This phone counts with an excellent 64 GB internal storage memory and an external memory card slot, enough to install hundreds of applications without thinking about filling it.

Though this cellphone is just 6.14" long, it is still able to fit a a 5.5 inches screen. Being just 0.31 inches thick,this phone is very thin and comfortable. This cellphone construction is a combination of Glass and Aluminum . The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is sold in a wide range of color variations like black, pink, red and silver. It seems like Sony forgot about weight optimization in this 6.74 oz phone.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium features two cameras, a 19 mega-pixels back side camera and a 13 mega-pixels front facing camera. Its back side camera has a maximum 2 aperture so it can shoot detailed photographs even in low light situations. It is capable of filming videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) up to 960 fps. Additionally, the camera has time lapse video.

This phone includes a gorgeous 5.5" screen with a 2160 x 3840 (4K) resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels composing the screen.

This cellphone uses amassive 3230 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours without charging it at all. An issue to take into account is that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts losing capacity, though having 3230 mAh you will probably replace this phone before that happens.

This cellphone includes Wi-Fi capability (which can be shared with other devices acting as a wireless modem), 4G LTE-A super quick connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a slower 4G variation) and 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium also features many interesting features like Fingerprint ID, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (for communication with other phones and accessories) and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is probably the right choice for you no matter whether you want a social device, want this phone to take many photos, are looking for a cellphone for work or are looking for a gaming phone. If you buy this device you also get USB-C Cable and Manual and Charger.
