Sony Xperia XZ1 hands-on review


Sony's latest HDR hero phone sticks to Full HD


Expert review by: John McCann Cameron Faulkner (

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact review


Sony's pocket rocket packs flagship power into a more manageable form

Small size, flagship specs ; Battery life could be great ; Super wide-angle selfie snapper

720p resolution raises eyebrows ; No fingerprint sensor in US

Sony’s Compact lineup always garners interest for its small size, but this year’s entry also draws stares for its refreshed look and high-end specs. The as-yet unknown price will seal the fate of this smartphone.

Sony Xperia XZ1 review


Sony Xperia XZ1 hands-on, price, release date: Sony has unveiled the Xperia XZ1 at IFA 2017 with an HDR display, Android Oreo and a fancy 3D scanning camera

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 has 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


Sony's Xperia XZ1 phone has a 3D-scanning camera that could earn it a following among 3D printing enthusiasts.

Screen resolution and bezel are behind the times. Won't be sold through carriers.

Sony doesn't really need to fight Samsung or Apple. It just needs a niche. Tying the XZ1 lineup to the current trend toward 3D printing and scanning might be just that. While the XZ1 is competitive with Samsung and Apple's prices, Sony's difficulty...

Sony Xperia XZ1 Review: Media Maestro & Super-smart Snapper Combined


Sony's Xperia XZ1 brand-new flagship phone is a beautiful hybrid of last year's Xperia XZ & the super-powered XZ Premium. Here's our full review.

Gorgeous HDR screen ; All of the audio ; Flexible MotionEye camera ; Rugged

Bulky ; No one-handed help ; Average battery life

Sony’s Xperia XZ1 is one of the best phones around right now for demanding media fans and anyone after a world-class camera that slips into their pocket with ease. While this flagship may lack the gorgeous and innovative design work of Samsung’s...

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: 3D-scanning phone is solid but uninspiring


Sony's Xperia XZ1 is a solid smartphone with the intriguing addition of 3D scanning

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: the stopgap


As the powerful and compact Xperia XZ1 Compact makes its return, Sony Mobile is also throwing the 5.2-inch Xperia XZ1 into the mix. Read this hands-on review of the Japanese manufacturer's latest smartphone to discover why Sony has introduced this...

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is for all Sony fans who find the XZ Premium too big and the XZ1 Compact too small. Since Sony provides all three with nearly identical hardware and software, it’s only a matter of smartphone size. At 699 EUR (which is about $830),...
