Sony Xperia XZ1 review: XZibit one

11 September 2017
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 pedigree. The 2017 Sony flagships proper combine the best elements across the lineup to try and cut themselves a solid piece of the holiday sales pie.

Love this phone, I wish there was a slightly updated model so I could buy it again in 2023. The corners could stand to be a touch more rounded but otherwise it's pretty amazing! Why won't anyone make small Android phones with decent specs anymore?

I'm still using my 5 year old model but the back has started to crack which defeats one of the reason I bought this thing - it's waterproof.

    Anonymous, 28 Sep 2017they will modify their design next year. finally those beze... moreAnd that is why today in 2022 you have the same basic, boring design with no headphone jacks. Guess who still has no notches, has Led notification and a headphone jack? That's right.

      Camara body disign & Sanpdragon chip This is unbelievable!!! I’m also Apple user but expiria it is a different experience I love it (from Sri Lanka)🇱🇰

        I think there is misconception here, the xz1 restart if you change the sim card not the sd card. Since it have separated slot.

                                      And 4k and hd has a difference in smoothness it is visible to naked eye. Because people looking at screen not at a single pixel. And 3d scanner is very useful. I scanned newly born baby of my brother and it will be more than an image some day! Why so much hate?
